    Default AAR: The Treasure Galleon

    Okay be nice to me this is the first time I’ve done this and will try to do better the next time I write one of these. Also sorry about the picture quality my phone decided it didn’t want to be cooperative this time around.

    Forces Involved:
    HMS Concorde commanded by Commander Calan Reid
    HMS Cleopatra commanded by Lieutenant Laurence Davidson
    Buque de Plata commanded by Incul Tello Armendáriz (represented by Le Berwick)

    Captain Armendáriz spots the intercepting British ships in the distance.

    Congrats on your success. I'll bet you were a bit worried about the Cleopatra's crew though? You couldn't have cut it any closer than this.

    Your photos were fine. Either by your narrative or the visuals I could readily tell which ships were which. Thanks much for sharing your AAR!

    Thank you for the kind words. Yes I was really worried about the Cleopatra's crew. Since I was using my youngest officer on the Cleopatra I thought it fitting that after he regrouped he charged right back in trying to make a name for himself.

    That's the same way I played my Lt.

    Like seeing the Spanish represented as part of your game.

    Nice first AAR, Rob.

    To hold back fire to get the more heavier B-damage was a good decision.

    Very well orchestrated attack upon a superior ship Rob.
    Your maneuverability paid handsome dividends. those extra forard and aft broadsides certainly tipped the balance in your favour.
    I enjoyed the action very much.
    Bligh.
