    Copper Plating and Spanish Treasure Fleet it is! ONWARDS MY FELLOWS!

    We reach Rio de la Hacha on June 18. The tradewinds are well in our favor until we actually arrive, and have to eastward into Rio, wherein it literally takes 2 days to dock in the port. The treasure fleet is not here, so I stop by the tavern. We pick up 19 more men. Also, guess who we bump into again? It's Vorak! Man, that guy gets around fast. I wonder how he got here, though, nobody else passed us on the way.

    Anyways, he sells me another piece of Lollercake's treasure map for 300 pieces of eight. That sick bastard still refused to tell me anything useful, though. "Yeah, so, the exact location is in between a bunch of trees". Fucker.

    [​IMG]

    I stop by the Governor. Apparently, I haven't pissed him off enough, as he arbitrarily hands me a letter of marque and tells me to go kill the Dutch. I guess he didn't notice the flags on our ship.

    I spend some time sailing around Rio to see if the treasure fleet will arrive. When it doesn't, I notice a passing Dutch invasion force, and follow it to see what it does.

    [​IMG]

    Lucky break! The unhappy men were just beginning to get hungry! I stop by the bar. First, I pick up yet another piece of map (I know, I'm sorry, I can't help myself). This time, we discover that it's on the shores of a place near a landmark known as Jellyfish Rock.

    [​IMG]

    Also, the barmaid informs me of a nearby Spanish Marque with 1,000 pieces of eight. May be useful, since the men are upset we have no booty.

    The choices as I see them:

    A) Go treasure hunting
    B) Go after the Spanish Barque
    C) Plunder towns while the Dutch have momentum

    B for booty. After...

    D: Talk to the guv and see if he's got a mission for you. You might get a mail runner out of it.

    Also, don't forget to recruit and check for upgrades. Get 'em if they're there.

    I'm all for treasure hunting, though vastly out numbered.

    I'd say C, but nobody wants C, so I would go with B.

    What the hell, Charonte? I'm starting to have serious doubts about your navigation skills.
