I hope this is not the wrong place, didn't seem to be a general general section so here goes

For those who are interested the below link is an article on the Navy (British) during and after the time frame of AC4

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24566266

Gives some insight to the tough conditions of life at sea, and being Ex navy men the world Blackbeard and Edward would have come from.
However is focused on the later time frame of the period (1790+) effectively after the age of piracy came the real coming of age struggles of the empires which formed the Royal navy into what it was for the Napoleonic wars.

Much of the same ship design/warfare styles etc were still used from the age we are going to be playing and this age.

Looks at title of the' Assassin's Creed General Discussion forum' - I think you are OK here, since it's related.


If you want a General, General discussion - that's not part of the forum group for AC, so you may not get many posts, but thats here:
