The Armed Merchant "Douche Doree"




After months of persistent interdiction from pirates the merchants of Fort Nicanville have turned to heavily armed trade vessels to bring commodities to their bare shelves. Seen above the Douche Doree a 26 gun Indiamen packed to the gun walls, is delivering relief to the market's dry goods predicament. " Look We have needs out here on the edge of his majesties' glorious empire and if the Golden Shower can provide what we need we will pay. Our butter needs churned, our melons need to be placed in the hands of our customers, we have nuts rotting on the dock. We're taking a real soaking out here and we need relief." Quoted a frustrated stall vendor.

  3. Thanks!
    I wasn't sure if it held the same meaning in French, and Google translate is not trust worthy for good euphemisms.
