Prizes and liners

Post by baggins on Sun Sep 26, 2010 6:31 pm

I have taken a number of inactive prizes, mostly merchanment, what can I do with them? I was thinking sell them, incorporate them into my trade fleets or give them back? There does not seem any point in keeping them inactive.

Also, under my Helping/protecting trade lists a large number of liners? As they are unable to protect trade should I re-deploy them or are they actually helping the trade itself and therefore re-deploying them would hurt my EH?

The liners "helping trade" is moving your trade goods, and thereby boosting your trade investments. But they do not protect anything, warships would be required for this purpose. Removing them would certainly hurt your trade, probably badly.
Your EH will most likely be unchanged but the income from trade will be lowered. How much depends on how many liners you have compared to the income from the area they are operating in and how many you remove from trade.

My fleets have taken prizes recently, I undesrtand that the tradition is that the sailors get the prize money. Should I order them to take them back to port and sell them and their cargo off for their benefit? Or should I ingore them and incororate the ships into my trade routes and sell off the cargo myself?

up to you, incorperating them will mean you will pay upkeep. selling them may give you a small profit. if you keep them then pay the ship/s concernered with capture a small bounty...
