There are so many interesting combos here:

A Religious Lawyer
Royalty with an Astronomy hobby
A prisoner who has tamed the prison mutt as a friend
A slave who knows economics
An Aristocrat pressed Into service as a soldier
Noblewoman spy

Definitely a lot of room for creativity

I'm in, but I'll hold off on picking my character until others have had their choice. I picked first in the last sim, so...

I'll join this and actually participate. Maybe I'll even survive the pregame this time...

Primary choice is Mr. Captain Navigator but I'm definitely also down for Aristocratic Economist.

:oldforum: :zultar:
Her Majesty Queen Regina,

Loyal subjects, the blessings of our kingdom of Hollish be upon you. The time has come to explore and grow our understanding. Within these Islands we have called home, our kingdom has grown into a powerful seafaring entity. With these new Caraveos we may travel farther than ever before.
Let us not squander this ability. Our neighbors Hartskrane, and Lithgopp are focused on trivial matters and needless worldly pursuits. This is the time to set ourselves apart and become great.
As your Monarch I vow to invest in this undertaking substantially. My Navy is a source of my personal pride and joy. I so love the notion of the open seas, wind in my hair and the thrill of the unknown.

On this journey I will be providing you our best Commander, Yuri Haymarket. He is of course a decorated captain of our seas. Pirates fear him, our enemies know not to cross him. His wisdom is unquestioned and you will do well with him in charge.

Additionally, the Pike Bay Trade Company has agreed to fund our adventure in their alliance to the crown. Please help to maintain this alliance in the new world. Pike Bay has given us access to trade commodity domestically that we had never before had the thrill of enjoying. Citizens of the colony wear lovely furs, have lamp oil, and access to Silver; all thanks to Pike Bay. Loper Taggart is a good man from my understanding. He runs a highly lucrative company and should be given your utmost respect.

As my gift to this mission I have set our future research towards building even mightier ships. It is my plan to one day rule the seas.

If you have anything else you need from me, please draft me a letter before your departure and I will try to fulfil anything you need.
-Queen Regina

Loper Taggart: Theres a number of directions we could go. Our ships will be the first to ever cross the Hollish Sea. the time of year is right, the journey may last a long time. We have no idea what is out there. Our Commander says we have enough food and rations to last a year at sea if necessary. So ideally we wanna find land out there eventually.
