Am renaming "The Defiant" to "The Quite Amenable Actually" (depending on string-length, it may be "The Negotiable"

I plan on renaming the Defiant to the Sao Paulo

 

good choice.  although we might also consider pale moonlight as a right bonny name for a ship.  

 

regardless, am suspecting whichever ship becomes the flagship o' our little armada will eventual be awarded the appellation o' bonhomme richard.

 

HA! Good Fun!

 

ps as an alternative, we were considering the nicknames o' the nfl's greatest linebackers.  e.g. mad stork, dobre shunka, iron mike, etc.   although, sixty-minute-man for chuck bednarik would likely be misconstrued.

You guys are way too classy. I'd call the ship "your mom's bedroom" or somesuch. Imagine dialogue lines like:

 

Hello chieftain, I am Hectraw, captain of your mom's bedroom.

 

As you might know, your mom's bedroom can easily house fifty men, and no fewer are necessary to keep her in top shape.

 

Do you know where I could hire some cleaners? My crew tends to make a mess of your mom's bedroom.

 

"Captain, the pirates of Pen Island are moving to board Your Mom's Bedroom!"

as a complete unsolicited aside, we can usually tell how a relationship is gonna turn out after we compliment her with "yar." 

 

 

which brings to mind another good name for a ship, the easy virtue. after all, true love is not pirate ship material.

 

HA! Good Fun!

In all seriousness it's interesting that in a game where colonialism is a theme we, outsiders are getting to name islands. "Isle of Butz" sounds like a real banger right? 

 

Am I overthinking this?

I am strongly tempted to call my ship Fred, for no real reason except that one day I was killing some time reading an article on a Swedish shipyard that listed all the ships it had built over something like a hundred years and one of them was a cargo ship named Jose`.  I figure if the Swedes can launch the Jose` then the Deadfire Archipelago can launch the Fred.  I suppose I could jazz it up a bit and name it Phredde.

It appears at first to be a rather banal feature but I appreciate the thought. My experience with sailing only extend to being on boats on lakes in my home state but I'm familiar enough with superstition to understand the need to name the ship. It's nonsense by all logical means but it makes it feel like a home.

 

Thinking of names like:

 

Unsinkable II

 

Defiant 2: Electric Boogaloo

 

Das Schloss (For the nerds out there.)

 

Skid Marks

 

Marlin Monroe

 

Yeah Buoy

 

Cirrhosis of the River

i renamed my ship from defiant to... "The Specter of Caed Nua" so, in my case i think i need the article.

 

 i'm still hoping to find myself a nice corvette (aka patrol frigate) around the archipelago, think they have those?

I think I'm going to stay with just plan old 'The Defiant' for my first playthrough for my ship.

 

My second playthrough the ship's name going to be changed to something with Caed Nua in it.

Defiant is an adjective, so you need the article to show it is a name. 

Uh, in this case, I believe Defiant is a proper noun. It's the name of something. In this case a boat. Thus, the article could be dropped, unless of course it's in the possessive form......oh for crying out loud. I just watched like three episodes of Sherlock in a row. I need to stop this high-functioning sociopathic behavior right now!

I'll change my ship's name as I buy new ships. And it will also be based on my character's class on each playthrough. For example:

 

Priest of Berath: Berath's Judgement

Priest of Magran: Magran's Fury, Flames of Hel, Godrammer (Eothas is the target ;))

Fury Druid: Stormbringer
