The Seaward Threat

Unread post by DM Spartacus » Thu Jul 04, 2019 4:15 am

Keeping trade routes open has become an important consideration to the City, and given an elevated status at a recent Duchal Court. Keen observers noted the appointment of a new Admiral and city officials to promote Privateer activity in defence of the City and it's sea routes. With the Dukes driving this initiative a fresh flurry of cash is anticipated, and ships are available.

The City fleet stands seaworthy at 7 ships

The new addition is growing under Admiral Yossen Yongfall, a successful Pirate hunter once in the service of Amn, and already vetted by agents of the Gate. His dock administration support is headed up by Filias Fixxalot

This fleet is expected to operate independently keeping sea lanes open and hunting down pirates and other troubling forces.

They have made efforts to secure existing shipping and stand ready to make them available when donations arrive dockside.

They invite interested parties with their own ships to present themselves for City Service, a reasonable war time package is available to fund operations and repairs. The City reserves the right to all goods captured but expects to be generous to it's supporters.

Interested Captains and donors should make themselves known to the Admiral in the first instance

Things have moved with great pace for the Admiral and a sizeable fleet is now to hand or on it's way. Crews are being hired, and expected to be supported or led by adventuring citizens, providing a no cost service working on a no win no fee basis. It is declared that missions will provide a one off contract, one that favours the City but is likely to be generous to the successful participant.

Citizens are encouraged gather their forces to offer up grouped applications, and to suggest or not, missions of use.

The city acknowledges the vital and very generous donations from the following citizens and groups:

Adelaide 1 million, DHC 2 million, Badgers 3 million

The Fleet

Ship being built, a purpose built fast Frigate, name:

From Amn, an even slower moving but strong and well defended caravel, (the owning company is selling off it's fleet) name:

From Moonshae a larger slower Caravel type ship, with some cargo area turned over to a accomodation. name:

From Waterdeep a slow moving Caravel with maximum cargo space and limited seaworthy build used for coastal runs. name:

From Neverwinter a faster moving Caravel, with slightly reduced cargo. name:

From Baldur's Gate a supply ship, not best suited for any military deploment. name:

It is rumoured other indvidually owned ships may be made available too.

The Admiral plans a naming ceremony shortly and invites those who donated and others to consider names to make themselves available.
