Hostile: England, instead of giving this ship an action you may instead give an action to any Sea Creature.
Flavor Text: Arngrim was only a minor warlord before he met Eyfura, when he laid eyes on her it filled him with a purpose like he'd never known before. Now his new father in law hopes that he will return and lend his strength to his newfound homeland.

Hadding the Elder - 6 - Viking
hostile: English, loyal: Viking, Marine
Flavor text: Few know why Arngrim and Eyfura felt the need to name two of their sons Hadding, most are simply too scared of them to ask. The elder Hadding has acquired a liking for heavy firearms. It's said he can shoot the head off a Reindeer at almost 4 lås.

Note: 4 lås is a little over 100 meters. Yay for archaic terms! These aren't even very old. Lås wasn't replaced until they started using the metric system.

Hadding the younger - 2 - Viking
hostile: France, loyal: Viking, firepot specialist
Flavor text: Few know why Arngrim and Eyfura felt the need to name two of their sons Hadding, most are simply too scared of them to ask. The younger Hadding has experimented in more novel uses for Black Powder than his older brother. His favorite (and probably safest) creation is a keg with a partition in the middle. In the top goes Black Powder, in the bottom goes lamp oil.....

I also experimented with an idea for a new terrain type, triangles! Yes, it was inspired by the legendary Bermuda Triangle and Sargasso Sea. Each of these terrains is made of three pieces that are placed to mark the points of the triangle. Any ship inside the triangle has to roll for effect each turn. Each of the sides of the triangle cannot be more than 7 L.

Devil's Triangle:
Each turn when a ship inside the triangle is given an action roll a dice and apply an effect corresponding to the die roll:
1: lose a mast
2: a crew gets marooned on the nearest island
3: if there is a crew marooned with 2 and an empty space on your ship, place a marooned crew on your ship(you now have control of the crew)
4: maroon a non-crew cargo
5: recover a marooned non-crew cargo
6: nothing

Map of the Devil's Triangle
unique treasure
When this treasure is revealed, choose a Cursed Triangle from outside the game. Place one corner within S of this island and follow the normal placement rules for the other two corners.

Sargasso Triangle:
1-3: Place a Seaweed Terrain piece under the ship and roll for effect.
4: nothing
5-6: remove a Seaweed Terrain piece within S of this ship.

Turbulent Seas Triangle
1: Rogue wave: Eliminate a mast from this ship. If this is the second time this effect has been invoked in the same turn, eliminate an additional mast. If there are any fire masts on the ship, remove them.
2-3: Treacherous current: The opponent to your left moves this ship L before this action.
4: nothing
5-6: Favorable current: This ship gets +S to it's base move during this action.

Thanks for helping with the costs Woelf.
