So, we haven't really been getting a ton of applications for the whaleship, which is too bad, but we're trying to decide whether it makes sense to set up a different ship that might appeal more to new applicants and that our current players would have fun with, too.
This is very preliminary, since we just started discussing this, but we wanted to see where your interest is before we make any new plans to bring in another ship. For people in the game, which of the following options appeal to you?
--Continue the whaleship? (which we can probably do regardless if there is enough in-game interest)
--Start a new pirate or smuggling ship?
--Start a new privateering vessel with a different assignment than the Hunt's?
--Start a merchant ship?
If you have any ideas whatsoever, we would love to hear them. We're going to wait and see what kind of apps we're getting in the next week or two before deciding what makes sense to give the new players a space to play, but any ideas-- for type of ship, for storyline tie-in, for ship's motivation to be in St. Erasmus, whatever-- would be great right now!
