I'm in need of as many names for ships as I can get, as we are kicking off a pirate campaign soon. So let's all gather round the fire and try and one up each other with how cool our ship names are.

Currently playing an ex-pirate, once proudly serving upon The Lash, fastest... ok one of the fastest... look, it was damn fine ship and that'll be the end of it! Anyway, she's seeking the means to exact revenge for the capture and execution of her captain and crew by that scum sucking first mate, the half-orc Grum Duggery. Near 40 years of good honest piracy left swinging in the breeze. And the price of this betrayal was no less than a full pardon and captaincy of the very same ship he had once sworn his life to!

So when asked why, after a good 30 something years, she has turned her back to the waves, Lavinia gives the same answer; "There's nothing at sea for me but Grum Duggery and the Lash!"

>Selling something like "The Shadow Pirates" is easier than selling "The crew of the Shadow ship"
It should be "the crew of the Shadow". No need to add "ship" at the end, it's implied.
>>44869787
But...Dead Tom's always been dead. That's why he's called Dead Tom!
>>
>>44869803

The Shadow pirates is easier to sell than the crew of the Shadow.

And that's just assuming crew name goes by ship name. The Shadow pirates, of the ship Blackbow, is better than either apart.
>>
>>44869803
May I introduce you to Dead Tom's friend. He's Dead Jim.

>>44869838
But nobody does that outside of One Piece, which is a manga about goofy pirates doing goofy/manly things.
When they're on the ship, it's usually just "the Blackbow" and they leave it at that, the ship and her crew are one.
When they're on shore, they're either "[captain's] crew", or just "pirates".
>>
>>44869914
Of course they don't, because people in real life don't build hype about some crew they are going to encounter.

But in a tabletop game, that's kind of the point. Who cares if it's goofy, if it gets the players interested.
>>
>>44869960
It would help if OP told us what kind of pirate campaign this was
>>
>>44869984
Assume one that would benefit from named crews as well as ships.

Being creative isn't difficult.

Here's the names of every ship (approx 1200 of them) from the Pirates of the Spanish Main game.

http://www.miniaturetrading.com/im/searchCards

Go to the "type" dropdown menu and select "ship", then hit "search for miniatures". Every other field should be set to "all" by default, so that gets you all the ships in every set for the game.

Hopefully that will generate a sufficiently large fleet.

I once played a homebrew game where everyone had their own ship and we fought as a squadron. Primary goal was exploration, but every craft had it's specialty.

>Maximum Force Response or MFR: Straight up combat specialist. Piloted by a lone android, and so had no internal capacity besides storage as he didn't even need a pilots chair. Completely depressurized. Most of the ship was guns and engines. Pic related is the picture I used to explain the idea to the rest of the group.
>Horizon Hunter: The science vessel of the bunch. The "homiest" with comfortable living quarters and extensive labs. Also the heaviest and most well armoured/shielded. Crew was a bunch of friendly Canadians and Scandinavians.
>Iron Khan: Drone/Cyberwarfare specialist. Piloted and crewed by a group of reclusive Russian nerds. Generally filthy, but surprisingly agile and technologically advanced. Had a side hustle selling sex bots when we were in port.
>Autumn Song: Your classic Han Solo/Fire Fly type smuggler ship. A rattletrap but shockingly fast and sturdy. Crew was as you expect, and the captain was the party face. The big catch was that they were actually the only ones loyal to the government we were working for, and pretty big patriots. Captain had a big Kirk streak and tried to fuck the an alien babe on every planet.

Its a whole "the Autumn of Man" shtick with one last true spartan left who will eventually die with no real successor. Only hope is if man can become more than man in a new cycle of seasons or fade and die in the long winter to come.

I've always been fond of giving ships classes, and then naming based on those.
In a sci-fi game the PCs fought off Sword-class light assault boats like MS Saber, Cutlass and Rapier.
Then they encountered Club-class assault ships. MS Cudgel, Mace, Truncheon, and a bloody battle with MS Hammer.
They got the gist, as the Clubs were bigger and heavier than the Swords. they tried to outrace LS Eagle, a Raptor-class messenger. They spent time on CS Darkwave, a cultural-exchange ship where they were spying. IT's sister ships were CS Bluegrass and CS Baroque.
They freaked out when they met an unidentified ship called XS Aphasia, and rightly so.
