The Phantom Narwhal is a narwhal that Astrobolt built in late 2016. So far it (and its several newer versions) has served in eight battles, the first three being victories, fourth being a defeat, fifth being a victory, sixth being a defeat, seventh being a victory, and eighth being a defeat.

The Phantom Narwhal was first built in late 2016 by Astrobolt when he was in Phantom. Since then, each addition to the series has been far more advanced than its opponents, each one proving to be one of, if not the strongest and most durable ship/sub on the server at the time. Through this consistent dominance of the seas, the series as a whole has proven itself to be the most successful ship line in PirateCraft history. It consistently packs firepower comparable to the output of large man-o-wars and indiamen, along with defensive advantages such as being a much smaller target, much faster, and made with more durable materials.

It should also be noted that v2 (see v2 for details) is considered to be unstoppable. It is a powerhouse in every respect; its armor is nearly impenetrable and it packs an enormous amount of firepower. It is the only ship to ever be barred from Maximus_Terragon's ship battles due to its immense power.

Designations

All narwhals are designated as seen fit. More designations may be added in the future if necessary.

v1

v1 and its sub-categories (v1.1, v1.2, etc.) are retired. They were used for all narwhals resembling the original Phantom Narwhal. (v1)

v2

v2 and its sub-categories are reserved for heavily-armored narwhals, such as those from the Battles of Freeport.

v3

v3 and it's sub-categories are reserved for narwhals resembling the current v3. They have less armor than v2 but similar firepower. These are typically seen in the Battles of Battle Bay.

List of Narwhals

v1

v1 (first design) - only was built. It served in the Battle on the High Seas, the First Battle of Ship Wreck Isle, and the Second Battle of Ship Wreck Isle. Its final resting place is the Narwhal HQ.

v1.1 (second design) - three were built. They all served in the First Battle of Freeport. Two were destroyed in that battle. (the ruins of one of them is at Freeport) The remaining one served in the Second and Fourth Battles of Freeport. Its final resting place is the Narwhal HQ.

v2

v2 (third design) - only one was built. It was deemed too powerful for battle by Maximus_Terragon and was therefore never used in battle. It is currently at the Narwhal HQ.

v2.1 (fourth design) - only one was built. This was the substitute for v2. It featured slightly less armor but similar firepower. It served in the Eighth Battle of Freeport. It is currently at the Narwhal HQ.

v3

v3 (fifth design) - only one was built. It served in the First Battle of Battle Bay and is currently near Battle Bay so that it is ready for future battles.

Battles

The Battle on the High Seas

On December 27, 2016, JamminMas hosted the server's first major ship battle. The Phantom Narwhal was with the crew Phantom which Astrobolt was a part of at the time. Unfortunately, poor records were kept of the battle, so few details are available. However, the Phantom Narwhal along with the rest of Phantom proved victorious.

The First Battle of Ship Wreck Isle

Hosted in early 2017 by Browe_, (the exact date was not recorded) this was the first battle at the new Ship Wreck Isle, built by Browe_ and NickyB_123. Similarly to the Battle on the High Seas, the Phantom Narwhal and Phantom won.

The Second Battle of Ship Wreck Isle

Also hosted in early 2017 by Browe_, (the exact date was not recorded) this was the second battle to be held at Ship Wreck Isle. The results were just like the previous two battles, with the Phantom Narwhal and Phantom winning.

The First Battle of Freeport

On October 28, 2017, the Phantom Narwhal, commanded by Astrobolt, was dealt critical damage early on in the battle. Soon after, the Phantom Narwhal was disabled. Two other narwhals were also brought into battle, but were both destroyed. After the battle, repairs were made promptly to ensure the Phantom Narwhal stayed healthy.

The Second Battle of Freeport

On November 4, 2017, the Phantom Narwhal, commanded by Astrobolt, proved victorious! Early in the battle it dealt crippling blows to the Teletub. This proved fruitful at the end of the battle, when the Phantom Narwhal defeated the only remaining ship - the Teletub. Towards the end of the battle, Astrobolt gave command of the Phantom Narwhal to TheSmilingFlea to finish off the Teletub. The Phantom Narwhal proved victorious, re-establishing its dominance.

While it did have a clear victory, the Phantom Narwhal was damaged several times throughout the battle, requiring immediate repairs to keep it operating. Afterwards, more thorough repairs were made so that the narwhal would not suffer any permanent damage.

The Fourth Battle of Freeport

On November 26, 2017, the Phantom Narwhal participated in the Fourth Battle of Freeport. After being absent from the Third Battle of Freeport, (since it was ships only - no submarines allowed) Astrobolt was able to stock up on supplies for the battle. At the beginning of the battle, the Narwhal took heavy damage from TNT shots, which were unwisely allowed by Maximus_Terragon. The battle was paused for repairs and TNT shots were not allowed during the rest of the battle. However, an inadequate amount of time was given to repair. Additionally, the supply chest was blown up by the TNT at the beginning of the battle. When the battle resumed, the Phantom Narwhal put up a good fight, but was ultimately defeated. The day after the battle, repairs were made to the Phantom Narwhal and it was quickly made ready for battle once again.

The Eighth Battle of Freeport

On May 26, 2018, exactly six months since the last ship battle that the Phantom Narwhal participated in, Astrobolt returned and ended his boycott on battles organized by Maximus_Terragon. At the end of the battle, four ships, including the Phantom Narwhal, remained. The winner was decided by which ship had the most blocks remaining at the end. The Phantom Narwhal emerged victorious with 93.4% of blocks remaining. This was the last scheduled Battle of Freeport.

The First Battle of Battle Bay

On August 18, 2018, Maximus_Terragon hosted the first battle in the newly made Battle Bay. The Phantom Narwhal ultimately finished in second place. Given the new rules and new narwhal version, the results were more than satisfactory while still leaving room to improve.
