What does a frigate spawn in Cursed Isles? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Has anyone been into Cursed Isles on a big ship? I'm trying to figure out what kind of a raft and sinister spawn it would generate onto the board for an event I'm thinking of running.

Yeah I chatted to Dexade, she didn't know the details I needed about the raft and sinister spawns, so I'm currently stalking Luigi... Cairn says the spawns aren't really much different.

As soon as my WF is ready I'm going to be taking it into a CI in order to test the amounts needed for the thrall token

I won't be going far from the safe zone

Is there anything you want me to keep a look out for?

Yes! I'd love to know what a frig entering the board causes to spawn in each of the zones for red ships and rafts, and how clogged the board gets.

If you know when you're going, I'd love to come help you test it too.

I don't think that would be accurate, in Atlantis at least, it seems to be based more on your might ring. So you wouldn't get accurate results without a full ship?

Ah, I assumed the ship'd be fairly full to test the puzzling token numbers. My bad!

Well, someone directed me to this thread.

First off, it is my belief that the ship size does not affect the spawn rate or quantity of rafts. I believe that spawn rates are affected by the amount of player ships currently at an outpost/CI location rather than size of vessel.
-Another note: There are no super rafts or anything, just normal ones.

Edit*: Sinister spawns seems to be approximately the same as well.

The main problem with running these huge vessels in the CI environment would be the effect of the fog/rafts if they were to make contact with you.
-Each turn in the fog generally creates about 10-20% damage and bilge which is ridiculously high imho, but whatever.
-Each raft also creates boarders based on the number you have on board. Possibly a percentage of 10%-20% based on estimations.

I am not 100% sure of everything, but I can do a few for you sometime if you need or want for general information.

Vova did one a while back on Midnight as a test. Napalm and Penguin also did a GF on ice to see what happened.

The basic issue is that the fog damage happens at 1/6th per turn you are stuck in the fog, now on a sloop this is kinda irrelevant but on a WF this is some serious damage to have to deal with.

It was found although manageable going into the island, coming out again with everyone working fresh boards and you more or less going straight into fog was a killer, and rendered you DITW pretty quick.

Yeah, I'm not looking to actually do CI on a big ship for the event, I'm looking to clog up the board enough to make it a challenge for the wee sloopies.
