I wanted to raise awareness that Ares has published a couple of new official scenarios (about which I don't see any prior discussions here).

http://www.aresgames.eu/16974

Also, these include the long-awaited carronade rules(!)

It is an interesting (perhaps controversial) take on carronades. I think the betting money would have been on something like "halved at long range, doubled at close range." The rule Ares came up with is similar, but implemented differently, because the carronade bonus is spread out across multiple turns by not requiring reloading.

Perhaps the game designers would like to weigh in with their thoughts on why they designed the rule as they did?

Thanks Ares!

I think it was discussed in the forum about the Constitution.

I have to say a little disappointed. The Carronade rule seems a bit clunky, and Ushant scenario still too big to be easily playable with two players (and they do not put any ending conditions on it).
