Assets Edit

Dauntless Thane Edit

An unrated sloop of war that was taken as a prize during the Alterac Defection while bearing the Civil Ensign of that Kingdom. It was willed to his wife originally, but following her death in 617, a young Fionnuala is forced to engage in a two year legal battle to retain custody of the Dauntless Thane. Among the controversial caveats of her inheritance is the validity of her Letter of Marque, written and sealed under the Alliance of Lordaeron and has yet to be confirmed in its terms by the current Grand Alliance. It was however processed under the Law of the Sea and Land of Kul Tiras, and is recognized by the government of Tandred Proudmoore.

The Dauntless Thane is a somewhat pretensious jewel in the tiara of the sea trades, and the ruby in Fionnuala's coronet with the demise of the Grand Navy of the Alliance and its heavy concentration of Kul Tiras armadas.

The white and blue banner of House Proudmoore is lowered once Theramore or any of its ships are in sight, and the green fielded banner of the civil ensign is raised in its place as a commemoration of the schism between the late Grand Admiral Proudmoore's legitimate children and the campaign against Durotar that ended in the death of the world's most renowned living sea commander.

Morningstar TriumphantEdit

A Quel'Thellas built transport brig that was captured by joint action of the Dauntless Thane and Steeled Resolve between the Gilneas peninsula and the Maelstrom. In the fog of the morning the pair of ships had been entering a trade patrol and struck at this target of opportunity bearing the Sunstrider banner. With the wind on the side of the human ships the quicker elven vessel was intercepted by the Dauntless Thane and forced to turn about. The Steeled Resolve took advantage of its greater manuverablity and speed to allow grappling hooks and boarding of the vessel before breaking away and circling around. As the Dauntless Thane engaged in small arms fire at the rigging and with cannon at the gun deck, the boarding party moved to suppress the gangways to the deck. The Steeled Resolve then proceeded to ring its ships bell as it trained its guns on the rudder of the ship, at which point the ship was surrendered and quarter begged. The crew was spared after the surrender of the ship, both passangers and crew were then transferred to longboats loaded with food and water before being given a bearing for Tirisfal and a copy of the inventory of goods taken as spoils. Among the ship's papers were a contract for one Caracharan Swiftbrook and her effects to be taken to Kalimdor; the items mentioned were claimed by Miss Brónach as her share of the prize along with the ship.
