THE AIM OF THE GAME
Your campaign will be successful if you can make it through all five voyages and make it home safely each time without being sunk, having defeated as many enemy pirates, creatures and ships as possible on the way. The rank you reach depends on how many enemies you sink and if you have defeated the pirates and standard bearers!. There are also secret objective cards that give players bonus victory points.
CHOOSE YOUR FLEET
Despite a weakened Empire, the Elios Navy is still a sea power capable of enforcing trading route safety and maritime dominance. The Elios White Order of Knights trains the fighting crews to be always battle ready and Imperial military engineers ensure that the latest lethal weaponry is fitted to the fleet. The great Elios Sea Docks are part of the largest ship building and repair port on The Continent. They are an incredible sight to behold.
Ettikan Corsairs are the ruthless seafarers from the non-aligned Kingdom of Ettika. They crave plunder and glory in battle more than safety. Their distinct scimitar emblems on purple banners and sails strike terror in all but the hardiest of crew. Were they to align with Karnarcos, this would spell doom for the remnants of the Empire. Their King is said to be elected amongst the Corsair Captains and any can challenge him. Could it be time now for a Corsair Queen to lead them?
Karnarcos, despite being landlocked and loosely aligned against the Empire, is managing to put more and more vessels to sea and not just a ragtag of old unseaworthy discarded ones, but some far better equipped, capable of causing havoc to imperial maritime trade and operations. The main Orders are now building their own heavily armoured and armed fleets. This is a maritime power in the making if no others hinder it.
The scourge of the oceans, pirates are non-aligned to any cause in the war unless they see profit. Tales tell of pirate kingdoms far away to the west of the Karlann Sea. Merchant fleets are terrified of them and pay a hefty price to be escorted by better suited fighting vessels…some of which cut a deal with the Pirates anyway…
