Check it out here and discuss here!

EDIT: Now that I've had time to read the description, it sounds really cool! I bet they'll be powerful and useful ships.

second EDIT: fixed code.

Wow I just checked the SEGA ETW page like 10 minutes ago, in the nick of time!

I never knew that there were different kinds of frigates, and what a strange word... "Razee", how would you pronounce that?

It comes from French (raze, like raser, meaning to cut or shave), and so should be pronounced rah-zay.

Newsied.

The bit about how it is constructed has me intrigued. I wonder if you'll need a larger ship of the line before you can build this one.

Good point HussarKnight. I bet it's a technology you research, and you can apply it to a ship of the line when it's in port.

I've seen it before. I think EoJ mentioned it.

It's certainly a word, jolly nice one at that. One of my favourites.

Nobody knows exactly where the entity known as Stephen Hill came from. He was found fully formed at the height of a storm and is believed to have come to Earth from a distant world where human qualities of fashion and beauty did not exist, which explains a lot. Constructed mostly of hatred and contempt, wrapped up in a pathetic human shell, Stephen comes fully equipped with his Antarian death coat, his Pen of Rage +2, and a variety of useful headgear

The Razee looked from the 3d unit picture to be the same as 5th rate thing they previewed previously. That's probably sort of intentional I imagine, unless they're quite lax. Could be embarrasing if you think it's a fleet full of fifth rates and get your arse blown off by bigger ships.

I hope that you don't get the full pre-battle information on what the opposing army is like you do in rtw/m2tw. It'd be nice to not know too much without doing something to earn it.

That sounds awesome, although you have to wonder, if they're made by cutting the top off a ship-of-the-line, why not just build it without the top part and save half the work?

They just take a ship of the line and sail it under a low bridge.

It is not enough that I succeed, but my enemies must fail.

I came, I saw, and was crushed.

Mongols? Time for a strategic retreat to the Atlantic.

Naturally you don't build a ship of the line specially just to chop off the top deck. I assumed that they were made from existing ships of the line, thus saving themselves the work of making a whole new ship to serve their purposes.

no. if you look more closelier, you'll see that it has a lowered deck on the back, like they said.

Yep, it's true, having no sig is boring. But so is this one. Which makes my point... relatively pointless.
Can a point be a point when it is pointless?
