The Hope-well
The Hopewell is a stout merchantman of 300 tons. The Hope-well was once home from home for one Lemuel Gulliver. On voyages you could give the players the stats for the Hopewell and let them decide when to use the ship’s aspects at the meta-game level. 300 tons, 116’ Gargantuan. Aspects: Merchantman !, Faithful Crew !!, Stout!!, Well Provisioned!!, Extra Swivel Guns!! Weaponry: six (three on each side) 12Lb cannons Mediocre WR30 six 2Lb Swivel guns Mediocre WR12 Ram WR18 Armour: AR17 The Hopewell used to have a sloop but pirates took this long ago. She now has four longboats stacked on her deck under canvas. Unless the PC’s are employed in specific positions where they contribute skills the skills of the ship are as follows: Skill Alertness Cooking Logistics Geography Intimidation Observation Oratory Navigation Persuasion Sailing Strategy Tactics Weapon Skills Crew Member(s) providing it (level) Typical sailor (Fair). Ship’s cook (Average) Commander (Average) Commander (Average). Commander (Average).

Typical Sailor from the Hopewell
Typical NPC Sailors of the Hopewell will be present in many scenes on and off the ship. In the event of PC death or separation the player can be assigned a sailor to play for a while. The player can choose Nationality, Languages spoken, trade, and a personal item to personalise the character. Make the player aware that the sailor is a tough experienced 6 part character who cannot permanently become a PC if the other PC’s have fewer parts. Fighting under their captain has given them experience other merchant crews might lack and they have good morale. Regular drills and competitions especially with the swivel guns support the captain’s anti-pirate tactics. Nationality: (varies, mostly from United Kingdom) !

Player’s Handout: Determining your ship’s skills
It has been decided that at a meta-game level players can assess the current skill levels of the Hopewell if they wish to take on positions in the crew. For this reason the ship’s skills and the rules used to determine them are given here. Ships do not gain skills with parts as people do. Instead a ship’s skills are determined by her crew. Where unknown assume an Average skill. In many cases only traits for a ‘typical’ sailor will be given, where this is the case and a skill is rated worse than average assume that those set to a task are at least Average unless there is a reason for this to be otherwise in your plot. Skill Alertness Crew Member(s) providing it Commander or crow’s nest whichever is lower. Usually an average crew member is in the crow’s nest. Ship’s cook Higher of Commander and Purser Commander or Master whichever is higher. Bo’sun, Commander, Head Marine. Commander or Master Commander or crows nest whichever is lower. Usually an average crew member is in the nest Commander Commander Average of crew Commander Commander or Head Marine for deck fighting As average of crew at stations. For deck fighting use average of crew or if 10 or more marines or fighting men are present use their skill. or

Downloading or commencement of use will be deemed to be acceptance of all of the terms of the FSTL. Ann Dupuis President, Grey Ghost Press, Inc. ghostgames@fudgerpg.com Fudge Logo Usage Guidelines Requirements for using the Fudge Logo: These requirements apply for any material published, commercially or not, in electronic media or paper or book format or other format, that uses the Licensed Marks (as defined in the Fudge System Trademark License (FSTL), each of which is sometimes referred to below as a “logo.” The primary requirements are: You must include the “About Fudge” paragraph and the proper copyright notices, and you need to make sure you’re using the trademarks correctly. The “About Fudge” Paragraph (including Copyright Notice) If you are using any of the Licensed Marks with any material you create or publish, you must include the following “About Fudge” paragraph: “About Fudge: Fudge is a roleplaying game written by Steffan O’Sullivan, with extensive input from the Usenet community of rec.games.design and other online forums. The core rules of Fudge are available free on the Internet at http://www.fudgerpg.com and other sites. Fudge was designed to be customized, and may be used with any gaming genre. Fudge gamemasters and game designers are encouraged to modify Fudge to suit their needs, and to share their modifications and additions with the Fudge community. The Fudge game system is copyrighted ©2000, 2005 by Grey Ghost Press, Inc., and is available for use under the Open Game License. See the fudgerpg.com website for more information.” If you are using any of the Licensed Marks in any advertising or promotional materials, you must include the following, abridged paragraph: “About Fudge: The Fudge game system is copyrighted ©2000, 2005 by Grey Ghost Press, Inc. and is available for use under the Open Game License. See the fudgerpg.com website for more information.” Trademark Notices In addition to the About Fudge paragraph, the following notice must appear on or in any product using the Licensed Marks: “The Fudge [or Fudge System] logo is a trademark of Grey Ghost Press, Inc., and is used under license. Logo design by Daniel M. Davis, www.agyris.net.” These notices may be included in Section 15 of the Open Game License (also required to be published with any material published under the FSTL) and/or presented elsewhere. However, they must also be readily visible and located in a reasonable section on your product itself (on the copyrights or credits page, for example). For material published as web pages, the “About Fudge” paragraph and trademark notices may be on a separate web page, but there must be a clearly visible and labeled link (“About Fudge and Trademark Notices”) from the page containing the material to the page containing the required paragraph and notices. Proper Use of Trademarks Trademarks incorporated into text should always be used as an adjective, never as a noun. Proper use would thus be: “This book uses the [Logo]™ rules.” You must include the “TM” symbol immediately after the trademark in superscript or subscript form. The trademark symbol must appear in the first use of the logo in the body of text, although it is not necessary to include the TM symbol in subsequent appearances of the trademark within that text.

11

Typography, Design, and Color You may not alter the typography, design, or color of the Licensed Marks in any way except as specified below. Color Versus Greyscale The Licensed Marks are available in two versions: a color version (black on white with spot colors gray and red) and a greyscale version. The former is useful for websites, color covers or color interior pages on books, and other presentations of your material that can use colors. The latter is useful for material printed with black ink (whether that’s a book or a printout from a downloaded file or other media). You are responsible for choosing the correct version of the logo for your specific material. You will not be held responsible for any printouts or other manufacturing of your material that is not under your control. (For example, you’re not responsible for the color of the ink used by someone else in printing out a downloaded copy of your material.) Minimum Size and Resolution The Licensed Marks must be reproduced at a minimum size of one-half inch in width by four-tenths of an inch in height. If using the Licensed Marks as a graphic on a website, the minimum dimensions in pixels is 36 (width) by 29 (height). If using the Licensed Marks in print media (including electronic files designed to be downloaded and printed), the logo must be reproduced at high enough resolution to be legible and without “jaggies” – in other words, make it look good. We suggest a resolution of 200-300 dpi (dots per inch). Dimensions and Distortions You may not distort the logo in any way, by stretching it more in one direction than another or skewing it or applying to it any graphical textures or effects. You may not overprint any part of the logo with another graphic or with additional text. Nor may you overprint the logo onto a distracting or confusing background. All parts of the logo must remain visible, clear, and legible. Minimum Clear Space and Placement You must allow enough clear space around all sides of the logo to ensure its clarity. If reproducing the logo at a small size, leave a minimum of ! inch of clear space around all sides of the logo. The larger the logo, the more clear space you should allow. The logo should be prominent but not overwhelm the design of the web page, book cover, advertisement, or other presentation of your materials. Advertising and Marketing You may use the logo in advertising and marketing, provided you include the text “The [Fudge/ Fudge System] logo is a trademark of Grey Ghost Press, Inc., and is used under license.” in a legible font in the advertisement or marketing material. Other restrictions: You may not use a Licensed Mark or any part of a Licensed Mark as a decorative illustration or graphic element or as a basis for a logo of your own design. You may not place a Licensed Mark in such close proximity to any other trademark as to make it appear that the two are related or that they are a composite mark. You agree not to indicate compatibility or co-adaptability with any third-party trademark in conjunction with a work pertaining to Fudge except as expressly licensed by Grey Ghost.
