Okay that is funny. But I do not take responsibility for that.

 

Guys, I expect you to read the opening posts before voting. The same goes for the thread where we collect the money for this cause.

 

And I also expect people to read very carefully and thoroughly the F.A.Q. in the opening post of that other thread BEFORE donating.

 

So please, be sure to read the opening posts completely!

 

That is my sincere request to you.

A lot of misunderstandings and false expectations can be avoided by that.

And if something is indeed left unclear in the opening posts, then let me know.

 

Luckily in the case of voting you can change your vote later on.

When I think of pirates, first I think of movies like pirates of the caribien.

But this is the wrong ocean, because deadfire is inspired by polynesia.

I was looking for something and foud this:

(sorry its so small, but it was the image that fits my ideas most)

 

I do not know how this type of ship is called and my english regarding ships is not so good.

So we have:

- 2 wooden ships tied together

- 2 masts with a triangle sail each, maybe another sail from the first mast to the front of the ship

- A hut in the middle

 

Does that count as canoe?

Well, as I opted for a soul-inhabited ship, shouldn't it be named like Culture ships? E.g., Gunboat Diplomat or A Ship With A View.

Note that these two are only examples; they're both existing Culture ships. But I'm sure we can come up with something simiar that's fitting to the Deadfire setting.

Just make a ship out the shell of a giant terror squid and have all the Bastards bound to it, and have them call her the Salty Mistress because she's usually annoyed with them using her as a ship and purposefully gets them lost and/or in trouble. Set sail for X, Salty Mistress goes to Y. Black Isle Bastard's Island is only the Black Isle Bastard's Island because it's the Squids home and she eventually goes back there. Some magic probably keeps her from diving or some such, hence, annoyance, also they built a ship on her.

I cannot forget the follies and vices of others so soon as I ought, nor their offenses against myself.

I decided to change my vote for the last option. I think the fate of the ship should be to join the Watcher's fleet or possibly be a replacement for the Defiant. ;)

This post is severely lacking in gravitas.

Updated the poll: the 3rd question has a new option: "The ship can be stolen by the player"

"Loyal Servant of His Most Fluffyness, Lord Kerfluffleupogus, Devourer of the Faithful!"

You, Sir and/or Madam, win today's Internet. One might almost say I find your lack of gravitas disturbing. Sorry, I'll see myself out now...

Funny that you mention a kraken. Because I made a map of my personal vision of a Black Isle (note: it's just a fantasy map, it will not be the actual Black Isle). There is a place called "Kraken Bay" and I asked a friend to draw a kraken for that! And he just sent me his drawing, right a few minutes after you posted.

 

My old map:

And here comes the kraken!

All credits for this kraken go to lolien on the Beamdog forum!

So, here's the updated map:

So yeah, Kraken Bay, has a new inhabitant and I strongly advise AGAINST swimming there, or sailing there...

Here it possible that map you totally appear on the BIBs ship, and when the Watcher asks about it, the captain is like 'oh. Yeah one of the boys drew that a while back. Out 'dream Island'. Didn't uh... Didn't work out in the end."

It is human nature to seek culpability in a time of tragedy. It is a sign of strength to cry out against fate, rather than to bow one’s head and succumb. Inevitably many will fault the hands upon the sword which felled Typhon, the Ordo Malleus. But the Inquisition merely performs the duty of its office. To further fear them is redundant; to hate them, heretical. Those more sensible will place responsibility with those who forced the hands of the Inquisition. With some fortune, they may foster this hatred into purpose, and further rule their own fate by coming to the Emperor’s service.

Yet ultimately, it was I who set these events into motion, with a single blow from my hammer, God Splitter.
