My latest ship, the Mummy's Revenge.

The Serket's Crypt ship is interesting. It's a smaller ship, yet it has a full-size cargo hold of 18 bays. It's quite fast and nimble. While it only has one sail, it also has two banks of oars per side. It has a fast reload speed and a slow firing speed. It only seems to have one cannon, but it's a really big one. Unless there has been a graphics change, this is the first time I've ever been able to see individual plain cannonballs shooting out. It seems to fire 16 shots per broadside, which takes about 2 or 3 seconds. So you'll need to change your fighting style to slow strafing, or else drop sails and turn hard to stay on target during the shot. Does not seem to have front or rear guns. Mortar is present an works just fine. No ramming ability.

I did not realize that it costs 5 gems to change the names of your ships. :cry:

Since the ship name is placed on the hp bar, I thought this was a fun name, as the lower the bar gets the higher the doom(Hence the DoomMeter).

Would it be too wretched a pun to name a ship Barbara Pyrites, as a play on Barbary Pirates? Western ships are classically given women's names, and pyrites is Fool's Gold, which is what we're all chasing after in this game. Pity we don't have a choice of sail color or figureheads as one player suggested. I'd go with yellow sails or a big sun icon and put a carved pretty lady up under the bowsprit.

Yes, I know the deadline has passed. But you haven't selected a winner yet, so maybe ...

I chose the Red Baron because it's the cutest ship you have.
