Subject: [BIRTHRIGHT] - Ship Maintenance


In 'Cities of the Sun', the maintenance cost of a ship is determined by
the number of troop units it may carry ( 0-3 units, 0 GB; 4-6 units, 2 GBs;
etc..).
My question is, every ship in the game can carry 0 to 3 troops, hence
every ship has a maintenance cost of 1 GB ! Something seems wrong here ....
I think you missed something. Check out card sheet 1 from Cities of the Sun.
There is only one ship that can carry 3 Units, two ships that carry 2 units,
six ships that carry only 1 unit and three ships that can't carry units (only
passengers). The maintenance chart is for the total amount of units that an
entire fleet can carry. IE 1 galleon and 2 Caravel = 2GB Maint. not 3GB as you
suggest.I wrote the following list for myself from the cardsheet.
Unit/Cargo
Caravel 1 and 3
Coaster 0 or 1
Cog 1 and 3
Dhoura 1 and 2
Dhow 0 or 1
Drakkar 1 or 1
Galleon 3 and 6
Keelboat 0 or 1
Knarr 1 and 2
Longship 1 and 1
Roundship 2 and 5
Zebec 2 or 2
Hope this helps.
