The Fog-Breaker

And, pardon me for leaping into the middle of the story right at the beginning, but I hope you can make some sense out of it anyhow!

Having seen things satisfactorily settled for the present in Terreli, much to his delight and the amusement of all others, Captain Whiffo had sent Myles off with the Second Mate to the shipwrights of the Capital to commission the preparation of a new ETWC sloop at the shortest notice possible... and, finding that "the shortest notice possible" exceeded his own ideas of propriety (which were quite unique, by the way), he sailed off instantly to return to the New World, leaving a letter behind him at the hotel to let his mates know what was up.  

But, as the reader has probably guessed, it wasn't very elucidating - yet notwithstanding, our ingenious First Mate got as much out of it as practicable, and proceeded to take temporary command of the Fog-Breaker, to go and attempt to find his eccentric Captain somewhere to the east of Terraversa...

Our randomly promoted (at least for now) First Mate:

The newest addition to the ETWC Eslandolan fleet, the Fog-Breaker is a fast trading sloop, built strong enough to weather the toughest gale, and yet sleek enough to cut through the water far faster than most of its possible enemies.  Notwithstanding, it is armed with an 18 pounder in the bow, and the crew have weapons enough to be armed to the teeth.  

Image

Like my other ship, as well, it has a full interior, accessible by the removable deck - which, unlike last time, note, is actually easily removable!  Instead of studs-up I went for an entirely SNOTted deck that sits inside the hull connected by the stud on the bottom half of the mast, and the rigging was designed with the removable deck in view (also unlike last time!  )

Image

The ship's-cook (those guys always seem to have a difficult life, for some reason...)

Image

And the cabin.  Given the raised quarterdeck, the two parts came off separately - and thankfully the quarterdeck didn't have any rigging in the way!

The mast:

And, wrapping up with a couple of overviews:

And the crew - left to right, the ship's cook, a nondescript sailor, the Second Mate, the First Mate (previously Second Mate of the Henri), and Myles Bowditch, temporary Captain:

Built for Brethren of the Brick Seas on EB (as you might have noticed by now! :wink:) so it's a tad more pirate-y than castle, but upon suggestion I decided to go ahead and enter it into CCCXIV as well. Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome!

Excellent ship! The interior is quite detailed as well, which is a nice feature :)
