8.8.2 Strategy overview

Ah! So Hemp does have some other illicit purpose, beside rope-making 😉 . In this slightly bizarre scenario, you must deliver Hemp to three competitors. The map is crawling with pirates, who need to be evaded. Although evasion is reasonably easy, occasional damage will rapidly reduce the progress of your ship to the point where they can no longer escape. You have no shipyard, so cannot repair your vessel. It is just about possible to develop your colony to the point where you can build a shipyard (and associated Wood, Cloth and Rope production). However there is a tendency for the pirates to attack your ship while it is undergoing repair…

In addition to pirates, Firenzia (“3” on the map above) and Volicanor (“4”) are guarded by the King (a German king, who has also evaded translators). Although this enemy is not hostile to those you are supplying, the King will attack you. You will need to find a Main Market that your Scout can approach without being killed. Of course this may mean mooring your ship some distance away, and trying to evade pirates while your Scout shuttles back and forth with the cargo.
