So...can torpedoes move through islands? Can they turn around an island? I am having trouble finding rules on this either way.

Thematically it makes no sense that they'd be able to do that, so no, you can't do that. If your ship can't go through an island, neither can you.

Torpedoes can move up to 4 spaces orthogonally. You can steer it any which way you want. There's no reason you can't steer it around an island.

I don't believe anything can go through islands. That would mean that you can't go through an island with a torpedo.

The rules do not say the torpedoes have to go in a straight line.

Hello,

Torpedoes cannot move through (seems rational not sure where to find it in the rules), can move around (the torpedoes are not moving in a single Orthogonal way, the First mate sheet should give an example if my memory serves)


Have fun playing,
Arnaud.

Yeah just Torpedoes, not Ballistic Missiles. Though there's probably scope for a fan variant there somewhere.
