    I swear that I remember hearing at the townhall that there would be a .. Britannian Galleon or such as a new ship with the booster as well (and I don't mean that "whale" one that was in consideration). Am I completely crazy/wrong in remembering this or what?

    Not the orc ship. A Britannian one. A human type ship.

    I am pretty sure (although not certain) that the Whale and the Galleon are one-and-the-same. I also believe they said it would most likely not be ready to be launched with the booster.

    I too am excited to see them or it or whatever!

    Britannia needs its own sailing-ship type vessel. A galleon would be perfect, maybe with an ankh or a symbol of the codex on the sail.

    There should also be a pirate ship with a jolly rodger on the sail...

    Agreed! Britainnia needs a good fleet... A Galleon would be prefect. You could even put the serpent on the sail.

    And most definitely it would be neat if we could add a flag or something to the ship... choosing between symbols for Gargoyle, Tokuno, Orcs, Britannia, and Pirates... Maybe even for ports of call, Jhelom, Moonglow, etc. Each could bear the symbol of virtue .... Justice, Sacrifice.... that sort of thing.

    Just a thought, but I think it would be an excellent addition to the ships and would boost the RP nature of them.

    Oh and for suggesting it... can I get a Drow flag with the symbol of a Spider on it? *grins*
