This might be a useful link: Incomplete Fictional Ship Name List


I have labeled it incomplete because it only listed one of the two named ships from Narnia. But it is a good long list. 


(Huh.  "The Black Freighter" is from the song "Pirate Jenny" from "The Threepenny Opera", the second most famous song in that opera after "Mack the Knife".  That's where Alan Moore got it from to put into "Watchmen".  


Sometimes I wish the comic book parts of Wikipedia showed awareness of anything beyond comic books.)


The Lady Stern


Stallion's Bane

The Kindly One

Well, these were both used in RPGs I played in...


In Firefly- "The Second Hand Lady"

In Star Wars - "The Second Star"


In D&D we had a ship called "The Sum of Honor" but I think it was taken from a 7th Sea Book.

I personally am not a fan of "Red Lion" since that makes me think of "The legend of Zelda: Windwaker" and that chintzy little sailboat King of the Red Lions

Wait... Wait... Wait... Who sank Pope Bryan's original ship?!?!

Well maybe it ought** to be either:


Pope Bryan's Retribution

Pope Bryan's Wrath


 With the Escort Sloops (sister ships):


Purple Polly

Tanya Teal



**there were several good alternative suggestions incorporating 'Revenge' further up the thread...

      Time to get the crew together, starting with the Heritor and Warden!

      Tonight was all about cleaning flash and mold lines, and there was a fair bit to do on both of these ladies. Also the Heritors swords were both really bent. They'll both be cut from their bases tomorrow and attached to new textured bases that all of the crew will be using.

      More on that tomorrow!

      So today I got my "Pirates" set from Antediluvian Miniatures. Nine days, transatlantic. The set consists of "pirates" who could conceivably be painted to somewhat resemble Inigo Montoya, Fezzik, Vizzini, and the Man in Black, aka Westley the Barn Boy, aka the Dread Pirate Roberts.

      They sit on my workbench, the primer drying. And while I thought to myself, "These figures will make fine NPCs and guest stars, as well as wonderful showpieces," I also find myself thinking, "It's a durn shame they couldn't have stuck Princess Buttercup in there. And Prince Humperdinck, while I'm thinking about it. And what about the Six Fingered Man? Hell, and Miracle Max? And his wife?"

      And so, while I wait for the primer to dry, I ask the Group Mind: What figures, from what manufacturers, would be convincing doubles for:

      *Princess Buttercup
      *Prince Humperdinck
      *The Six Fingered Man
      *Miracle Max
      *Max's wife?

      The Kickstarter is now live!

      Expansion sets for the Blood and Plunder tabletop game.  Live on Kickstarter.
      About this project
      Blood is on the horizon! The iron grip of Iberian Domination is eclipsing the 17th century Caribbean as the world races to seize its spoils. Join the emerging Dutch Republic as it battles for its place among the established European powers or defy foreign incursion as a Darien King in this expansion to Blood and Plunder, No Peace Beyond the Line.
      No Peace Beyond the Line is the first major expansion for the Blood and Plunder miniatures game. This expansion will revolve around the No Peace Beyond the Line book that will feature:
      Optional rules for playing games at a greater scale or with more than two players A campaign system Special characters that players will be able to add to units New units and factions for the existing nationalities New nationalities including the Dutch and Native Caribbeans New ships: Piragua, Fluyt and  the Galleon!  Factions for expanded nationalities such as Danes, Swedes, Prussians, and Portuguese This Kickstarter allows us to raise the funding needed to expand our product line to this scale in a short period of time as opposed to having slow, continuous releases. Firelock Games is excited to have the opportunity to continue expanding the world and timeline of Blood and Plunder in order to create a more exciting and expansive line for its player base.
