    Looks really fun. It totally feels like a civ version of Sid Meier's Pirates!

    Is it only going to be a multiplayer scenario?

    This was a bit confusing. The active ability "provides a significantly increased temporary movement", but this above is what they showed when seeing it.

    Passive ability: Gives more infamy for revealing more hexes of the map.

    It's 1-4 players, so you can play it against the AI.

    From the look of it, you are always "playing against the AI" - who will always be playing the colonial powers (i.e. England, Spain, etc..) and the buccaneers/legendary pirates.

    So my guess is, at 1 player, you are actually just the only pirate faction, and are competing to survive/beat your high score. Rather than them having programmed the AI to be able to play a pirate faction. Which seems like workable approach to me (and, frankly, how the original Pirates! worked as a single player game).

    I hope the AI can actually play it. While I haven't tried it myself, I hear they're not really sufficient for red death

    I’m honestly pretty pumped about this. Red Death is a lot of fun. Pirates looks like it’ll be a hoot as well.

    Agreed! Really makes me want a Pirate civ too...

    I think the chain shot ability is sick. I would like the melee class naval units in the base game to have it, as a psuedo zoc

    Featurewise, it looks like a nice scenario. Lets hope that the AI either is able to play as Pirate faction as well or that (in case it is one Pirate faction vs. Naval Powers/Legendary Pirates in SP) the balance doesn't suffer depending on how many pirate factions are on board (my fear is that when facing them alone you might just get overrunned).

    I was hoping for a Kraken barbarian-like unit :)

    I can only imagine the complaints though. :rolleyes: I'm fine to keeping this one historical as possible.

    Didn't it originate in Norse mythology so it might have worked better in the Vikings Scenario instead of a Caribbean setting, if they were to make it somewhat fantasy-like.

    Really loving the fact that the 4 colonial forces will always be there and played by the AI, making solo play on this much more likely to be satisfying !
