That is in the December-dated turn (e.g. the newspaper is dated December), so in G10 the next turn is our income and recruits month, which I'm looking forward to bounce

I too miss the days when all I had to do was drill troops & the odd galley, write death threats to Venice and burn, loot & plunder.

These days I am seem to also be having to train horses,vets, priests and lawyers as well as troops, develop fancy saddles and do so much research into C18 agriculture, logistics, art & civil engineering that its really getting in the way of killing foes.

Privateering is a specialist sub Catagory of "Loot & Plunder"..........that is a proper order.

But in the good old days is was Privateer Galley = Plunder. These days your modern privateer has to consider......coppering, improved sail & rigging, boomkins, dispart gun aimers, marines, grenadoes, helm indicators, improved charts, sextents, trained officers, silken, scurvey cures, and last but not least legal challenges to his licence! Times are hard for you modern privateer in Glori du Roi !!

Oh and something else I dislike "General Cargo" what the hell is general Cargo when its at home? Can people give your friendly neighbourhood privateer a bit of fun and specify some major cargo types?

Don't worry Stuart, I'm arranging for a special act to be passed in the Scottish Parliament. Anyone caught in Scottish waters, who claims to be a privateer rather than a pirate, will be able to prove their innocence by being able to recite the Lords Prayer...ok, they will need to recite it after being hung by the neck until dead...
