As for putting Forecastle on the ship it is obvious, he does not have the special ability and the last two ships that have popped have been lost after he attended their launch would be seen as very bad luck. His side is going to try to kill him.
As for why they are disappearing I got a feeling it is going to be Charlie trying to prevent anyone from finding out about how big the World actually is. Charlie is the only person who could be involved in this senerio. Charlie once again is proving to be the kid who likes to lord over everyone with all his might and why he hates Players so much.
I don't think they're deliberately trying to kill him - they're just running out of suitable warlords, and Forecastle isn't doing much in Forecastle (Of course, narratively it perfectly makes sense to make a land invasion occur just now).
The way you describe Charlie is not the vibe I'm getting from him at all. Also, Charlie was in the previous story, which makes it a tad less likely for him to appear now too.
