Scenario 1: The Regata
This scenario is designed to give players a chance to learn the basics of tactical navigation using the Signal Close Action rules.
On a 4x4 or 4x6 table lay out 4 bouys in a square or rectagular pattern aproximately 30 to 40 cm from the table edge. Set the wind direction to a cardinal point (N, S, E, or W) and let the wind speed be either a light or moderate breeze.
Each player will control the same type of ship with the same crew and captain quality.
For Example -
- 38gun 5th rate, cap = average, crew = good, ship quality = normal, mnvr class = B, 6 rigging DC's w/80 points each
- 20gun 6th rate, cap = average, crew = good, ship quality = normal, mnvr class = B, 6 rigging DC's w/50 points each
2 unrated xebecs, one is pirate (10 guns over crewed), one is prey (6 guns, average hull avg crew). 1 16gun brig comes up to help the prey ship. conditions: pirate takes prey and brig = complete pirate victory, brig takes pirate and prey = complete navy victory, pirate gets away but prey uncaptured = marginal navy victory, pirate takes prey and escapes = marginal pirate victory
