Special Rule: Each ship has the following critical effect:
: If this attack is at close-medium range, remove all objective tokens from enemy ships. Then assign an objective token to the defender.After a player moves a purrgil, if that purrgil is at distance 1 of a ship with an objective token, that player may choose and discard 1 objective token. Then that ship suffers 1 facedown damage and the opposing fleet's owner gains 1 victory token.
Victory Token: 15 pts.
