    Thumbs up A flute player, how cute!

    If you look at the bottom-right of the below picture, you'll notice a flute player! They're found on every ship, I think! Isn't that like, totally cute?!

    Too bad I didn't hear any music. Perhaps the music files will be in the main game? And perhaps it can be modded to place a re-skinned flute player in the infantry units, too?

    Btw, I finally beat the naval battle demo. Once you understand the concepts of grouping and formations, it ain't that bad.

    Cool store, bro! I want some ham.
    No ham, pepsi.
    They make deli slices of frozen pepsi now? Awesome!
    You also need to purchase a small freezer for storage of your pepsi.
    It runs on batteries. You'll need a few.
    Uhh, I guess I won't have pepsi then. Do you have change for a twenty?

    Well, go sacrifice a fourth-rate. You have more. And my computer runs on the Nvidia 6 series.

    A man has to be pretty brave to wander around in the heat of battle while playing a tune.

    It makes it easyer if some want to do a hornpipe…with out music it is only skipping and prancing…that could be ugly with all those pressed sailors…

    I boarded a enemy ship in the demo and their flute player just kept on playing on the top deck while all his ship mates were dying around him.

    He doesn't care what happens, so long as he can play. Music is his lifet . Or perhaps he was playing a funeral march?

    Ah the battle piper, using music as a weapon. He plays mystic and ancient tunes designed to harm the enemy and heal the ally.

    Remind anyone else of those old "The Boy Stood on the Burning Deck" rhymes your dad taught you?

    The boy stood on the burning deck
    Playing a game of cricket,
    The ball flew down his trouser leg
    And hit his middle wicket.

    etc etc

    No must have missed that one.... I will never understand why some people are perceived as "cute".
    Being better than the worst does not inherently make you good. But being better than the rest lets you brag.

    I can only hope they put this much attention to detail into the more important aspects of the game.

    ...and yes, he's adorable.

    What we weren't told is that a few seconds later he was blown to smithereens by grape shot. Not so cute anymore!

    He is part of the shipboard circus act. Him and the flying midshipmen. You should watch some of the boarding action…

    Or watch the cannon balls turn them into tomato paste…
