Hey, a question I can answer! The Pegasus is a fifth-rate frigate...
--- For all you landlubbers out there ships in the Golden Age of Sail were "Rated" in an order, from best to worst...

Royal Navy Rating System

Ships-of-the line were the battleships of the sailing days. They carried from 64 to over 100 guns. These guns were distributed over 3 decks.
1st Rate Guns 100+
2nd Rate Guns 90 to 98
3rd Rate Guns 64 to 80

Frigates were the cruisers of the 18th century. Usually smaller and faster. They carried 20 to 60 guns. These guns were usually distributed over 2 decks. Maybe 1 deck for the lower Gunned ships.
4th Rate Guns 50 to 60
5th Rate Guns 32 to 40
6th Rate Guns 20 to 28

Sloops-of-war were the smallest warships. They carried 10 to 20+ guns. These guns were distributed on 1 deck.

Gun-brig and Cutter Guns 6 to 14 These guns were distributed over 1 deck.

I guess I going to have to re-read the Hornblower & Aubrey series!
YEA!!

One of the fantastic things about a game based on Lady Sabre is that it's:

Swashbuckling
Steampunkish
Western
Pulpish

Did I miss anything?

Hey guys,

I don't want to bump threads too much, so I'll lay low for awhile after this post. But, to answer the earlier question of when the hiatus will be over...it's over now!

New strip is available at the Ineffable Aether site.

Hi guys,

Sorry to only drop by when there's news, but I wanted to let you know we launched a Kickstarter a few days ago to print our first volume, and it's going...really well so far.

We're over 200% funded now, but I still wanted to bring your attention to it because some of the limited tiers are going fast, and if any of you were interested, I didn't want you to feel like you missed out!

Thanks again for all of your support!

EDIT: OH! I forgot to mention the one thing I came here to say. One of our stretch goals (already met) is a pocket guide to the Aetherverse, written in-world, in-character by Aether gadfly Edwin Windsheer. I thought this might be a helpful resource for those of you still interested in running a homebrew game.

Just wanted to post a brief note here to let you guys know we're in the last 48 hours of the Kickstarter campaign and to catch you up on some developments that, again, might be helpful to running a Lady Sabre campaign.

First off is a piece made by another Kickstarter crew -- IO Worlds' Teramyyd based on the Pegasus. This will be made available to certain members who backed their campaign. I'm not sure who else or how else they'll be spread, but I can inquire if you're interested:

The second bit of news is that we've met stretch goals to collaborate with graphic designer (and RPG artist) Sterling Hershey to develop maps for the Aether and the worlds that make it up, and today we cleared a stretch goal to have Sterling do a complete set of deckplans for the Pegasus! These will be included with all copies of the book, and digital copies will be included in the $20 digital package.

Cheers!

If you ever come across a PC game called Age of Sale, one of the help file documents is an exilent primer on all this and more
