  1. Colonial British ship lists

    Same thing as the Danish, this time for England. The focus is on colonial era ship names.

    This website was pretty thorough, but unfortunately doesn't exist any more. The archived version is here.

    One website on Hudson Bay area ships -- which, while not capturing the full insanity of spellings in the original documents ("Anfraunces" for "Anne Francis", "Dionyse" for "Denis", "Myghell" for "Michael"), at least ...

  2. Dano-Norwegian ship names

    Found a massively comprehensive site of Danish ship names from Odin to 1700 here (in Danish, natch) and even more details on ships and aliases (albeit in a much less convenient format) at Skippere here and at the Orlogsmuseet here.

  5. HOI3 AARs: Final Five

    Vote here.

    From Polish fields that time forgot
    An army marches on and long
    Like a darkening, cancerous spot.

    A heartless fiend, fire breathes
    Tearing and turning all around
    Marching, churning up the leaves
