Hence me clearly pointing out that 'if he hangs out on my boat' and that there were other boats.

I'm just trying to establish that people on The Great Triangles' boat are there because they're either part of the Marines/Sailors or part of the Entertainers.

Listen, I'm not trying to be unreasonable here. We've already established that he's the owner, I'm the captain which means I can establish certain rules while we're at sea. Given that The Fisher King's dedicated to fighting piracy and being a proper captain, that means he'd just as soon not have a heavily armed and armored Demigod upon his ship that's unwilling to follow either Elsewhere's orders or his own.

Thankfully, there are already other ships if that's too much to swallow.

Edit: Heck, give us a session and we'll give you a captured boat to do with what you like.

Now that might not be a bad trade. How much does it cost in resources to own a boat as I may just shift some points around to take whats needed and own the other boat while someone captains it. Thats not a bad idea and it saves trouble.

For a ship like a blue-water merchant?  Resources 4.  Ships don't come cheaply.  Plus Followers to crew it.  Or Allies/Retainers, if you want them to be more closely bound to you.

Paladin, we already spoke about repairing your armor, so just crash (not literary) somewhere on the Serpent. You can pretty much repay any debts by buying the food for the crew (four exalted and four elementals), providing your sword should problems arise and being helpful as a research object from time to time.

Indeed, and I tend to be a less stringent captain ;).
Of course, that's because my character is not a pro, and he doesn't really need sailors. I would count on you not to act in a stupid or dangerous way in a dangerous situation, the rest is negotiable ;D!

Just a quick count-up, who's on whose ship.
Voichin, TH - on Voicnin's ship.
TGT, Corinthi, Asku, Seraph - on TGT's ship.
That's what I have so far. I just need to know is this final, because if it is, the rest of you will go on a third ship ;). You can still choose one of the first two, but I need to know.

Well, returning to everyone knowing each other.  I do beleive Triangle made mention of an acting troupe.  If he'll permit, I'll move Blessed into that group as an entertaininer.  She is talented with her pipa and voice, so she might make a nice home for herself there.

Entertainers are a great idea!  Most of my acting troupe are mediocre performers with really really good memorization skills to help them perform my plays, so a genuine artist would be quite helpful.

As for power armored maniacs, I would be willing to have people with obvious relic weapons aboard as long as they keep their weapons stashed in their quarters.  (Heck, even Seraph has a suit of gunzosha armor, although she can potentially get away with pretending to just be a commando) and equip them only when the ship is in serious danger.  Also, the realm doesn't control the west, so wyld hunts have limited jurisdiction.

Seems like we are going to keep Paladin aboard :D!
Anyway, nobody would believe that artefact ship manned by various elementals with people walking around on the water surface and trying to paint it in the light of the sunset is a mundane ship ;). It's not how we'd enter a port, but all these Celestials at one place would act as beacon light for any Sidereal astrologist anyway. Of course, for this very same reason, we are not an easy target either...

And seriously, that's the ocean, you don't need jurisdiction to attack :P. Putting together a Wyld Hunt capable of dealing with all of us at once might prove a hard task so far from the Realm, though, or at least a slow one.

If you've got elementals, you can at least outrun a realm ship until you've got time to go to ground in a friendly government.  Nobody in the realm likes the realm much, and they know that with the regency, the realm simply doesn't have the political might to tear an entire nation apart looking for a small group of "anathema."   

Now of course, if the we piss off the bronze faction and the sidereals get involved, we're humped, but if we piss of the bronze faction enough, eventually Kejop Kejack is just going to teleport over and wipe us out with sidereal martial arts.   ;D

No, actually, that's an incorrect assumption, Chopek's too busy at the moment, with internal realm problems to focus too much in our direction.  Besides, the Chair of the Water Convention is Righteous Tsunami... a battles, bronze faction, but one who has declared that all factional infighting is forbidden in the west... to many other problems.  (Wyld Hunts still happen, but without sidereal support.. usually)
