So I had an idea I wanted to submit for Seafaring. I am sure there are lots of plans for it in the future, but this idea I had I think could really bring about more interest in seafaring outside Pirates, and fishers. This idea would directly affect the cities of Achaea. I know not every city can have a port due to their location, but I thought it would be a great idea to create Sea bases. 1-2 in each part of the ocean. These bases could be captured and claimed by the Sailors of each city. I imagine it would require both ships and a landing crew to capture and claim a sea base. Ships would be required to take out the outer defenses, and once that barrier is broken, the ships could sail in with a landing party to do some on land combat. Once all the defenses are broken, that city or Village could then use their own coffers to rebuild, and maintain those defenses. Once captured, I figure that sea base could provide some kind of trade benefit to the controlling city, a steady supply of that bases commodities, or gold intake. I figure it could also generate some kind of ability for those that set sail in their ships if they are a part of that city. Some enhanced defenses or increase of figurehead power or something to that idea. This could turn seafaring into more of a City/Village thing other than the current Ministry. I would also increase the use of Ship VS Land combat, even if it's just against the sea base. I would also say that each city or Village could control one, or all of the posted sea bases. This of course would mean that taking one would be difficult, as long to lean power to just one location.
