Salvaged Honor-Captured Jamaca Sloop from the Bloody Arms Pirates (Comes from his view of 'redeeming' the Bloody Arms' ship by taking it for himself)

Pearl of the North-fallback ship (Comes from the fact Balgar hails from Russia and his ship was built there)

I go through ships like some men go through lovers. Maybe it keeps them blasted Brit pirate hunters from tracking me down. Some names I've used:

"The Filthy Ore" - Caught that one carrying iron ingots
"Stinky Wench" - Caught that one with a hold full of fresh fish
"Butcher's Bill" - This one dang near caught ME and after three boarding attempts I finally took her. Lots of peg legs were handed out that day.
"Redoubt" - My Heavy Snow that I thought was a bloomin' fortress. French sank her off of Tortuga, so turned out she wasn't.
"Sea Cow" - Because she handled like one
"Itchy Britches" - Some of those enemy captains wear the goofiest clothes
"Belly Up" - She sailed like a dead fish
"Spreading Rash" - Don't dock at French ports!
"Better Part of Valor" - With a well-armored stern!

I don't always name my ships, but when I do I usually try to have them mean something. And I like mythology.

.. A lot.

The One-Handed God: Currently my Raa Heavy, named after the Norse war god Tyr who was nicknamed such after bravely putting his hand within Fenrir's jaws and, consequently, losing it. Figure naming a frigate after a war god works pretty well, heh.

The Nereid: My Arcadia Xebec. I likely would've gone with another Norse name but Arcadia being a region of Greece won in the end. Nereids are sea/water nymphs in Greek myth.

I have a few names I don't usually use anymore, like La Reina Del Sol and The Pernicious, but.. Yeah. Haven't stuck those on anything in a while.

I have 2 ship's names that have stuck:

The Dawn Razor-Bermuda MC because it's sleek, swift and keen. I also like to imagine tracking merchants all night and swooping in on them at dawn with the rising sun at my stern...

The MorningStar-Mediator MC because it follows a theme and I like to think this is a heavier weapon than the above...

Aye at level 31 it's past time to get a heavier ship, but I like speed and maneuverability...

*EDIT* ohhh geeeez... I just rewatched cutthroat island for the first time since it came out.... musta had the name morningstar stuck in my subconcious somehow.... off to rename...

A very fitting name, and congrats on getting one Wink

If you ever get into gun range with this thing the others will fear you *grins*
