The following gazette is intent on publishing selected "prize court" cases pertaining "la guerre de course" as per French maritime tradition.

The issues will be published without regularity, but can increase or decrease in number due to the cases sent to the gazette.

When you like what you read than please give a like and participate "in character" with your replies via pm.

Otherwise I would kindly request the moderators to hide all answers to keep the topic in role-play fashion and 100% clean of troll/flame posts.

In case you want to give feedback pls use the pm function as well.
