Pillaging Ship Help- I'm clueless! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Me and two mates were thinking of buying our own ship (we play on Viridian). Unfortunatly we don't know anyone else who plays the game and know nothing about: Buying and equipping the ship, How long the ship lasts, How to navigate, How to battle navigate, What to take on the pillage and How much it costs to run.

I would really appreciate it if anyone could give us an answer to any of these questions

For most of this, you can find info in the YPPedia, but real quick:

Boats last forever, they don't wear out like other items.

Buy ships at a shipyard, you will want a sloop for your first vessel.

To take the vessel out for pillaging you will need to rum and cannon balls. The amount is up to you

There are several threads with hints on equiping ships and banvving in this forum. Do a quick seach and you will find plenty of information to help you get started. Also try finding a good crew with some experienced bnavvers who can help you.

the training lessons I give me own crew are here:
http://www.frontiernet.net/~otherwhen/

that will lead ye through how to run a pillage and stock a ship, in small stages. ye will want to do a lot of practice with the navy bnav missions though.

Your best bet is really to meet some people. Go jobbing off the notice board, join a crew, and get officer training from people who have experienced all of what you're interested in. There are a lot of details in running a pillage, and learning them from someone whose been there will take a lot of frustration out of learning from your own mistakes (so much better to learn from other people's previous mistakes, instead).

It's a social game, so even though you don't know anyone now, you can definitely meet people.

Also, note that you must be an officer or above in a crew in order to sail your ship, so if you and you're mates aren't in a crew, you need to either join one and get yourselves promoted, or start a crew of your own (which requires the appropriate badges and experiences).
