Starting the FTC
Lord Edward had to get permission from the King of France and the Lord of France. The Lord of France agreed but the King kept denying. Finally, he agreed.
Ships of FTC
There are many ships of the FTC, but the lead of them all is a special, rare kind of ship called a Speed-Lined ship. It had 30 cannons in total, but could even outrun the Interceptor, a sloop, and the Black Pearl. It had a large cargo area. The H.M.S. Invincible is being decommissioned (scrapped) after years of commission.
