I can pillage, I can sail and I have a hat.. a BIG one.. Commadore ;)

Count me in! *Pirate Bryn touches hat and perches up on the yardarm with her telescope to look out for ships*

Yaaarrrr! As well as all the ranks is there room for a First/Second Lieutenant? If not I'll go for something nice and general, but with a bit of free will? Even an Officer of the Watch or something? Sound okay? Hmmm? Hmmmm?

:angel:

i'm considering signing up as well, but mostly as a sellsword rather than in an official position.

Good with a sword, good with a gun, and with a shady past to boot :p

maybe an official 'boarder'  :angel:  :devil:

Captain: A Karas
First Mate/Navigator: Shalamar
Second Mate/Sail Master: Ilphi
Quartermaster: Silverwind
Chief Cook: Nikki

Mercenary (Marines?): Gode

Bryn - why not Gunnery Captain? :) Or one of the other jobs on the happy list :)

To A Karas and Shal, I'd be happy to help with development of this game as well, maps, ship descriptions, that sort of thing. I'm a history student, and Naval history is my favourite field.

Well, again, I'm not running the RPG, but I did think about it quite a lot while the thread was buired since I offered my services ;)

The idea I had was that we started off just a band, then we decide which boat we steal/buy in game... we could try and steal a military ship from the port, or try to get one legit, or whatever :)

No, we don't steal.. we commandeer. Nautical term :p

Sure, I can wait and find out :)

Hi all

As the posts i'd  be interested are already taken, I guess I'll be a general scallywag with a dark past.....oh no! that's taken as well!

OK, i'll be the scallywag without a dark and deep secret...

LOl Chaddee, every scalliwag can have deep dark secrets...and shallow faded ones as well  :p

and given the discussions had by A Karas and I it will be very close to the PotC...

in fact our ship is the Black Pearl...the fastest ship in the Carribe...and we are Jacks new crew, the rumest batch of pirates to pillage and plunder on the high seas...

but one thing..we don't blow the powder main, we loot the powder main, powder is valuable!
