First of all, a sentient parrot?  :blink:

Continuing on...My profile!  I'm not 100% certain this is absolutely finalized, but here goes.  (Weird note:  I had originally planned on something quite different, but then I found the avatar and *poof!* a new character was created!  :wacko:  And, as usual, she has a ridiculously complex full backstory, and I had to research stuff for her profile and...sheesh, I never do it the easy way! :blush:)

Name: Buwaya (nickname, not known by any other names)

Race: Filipina (but speaks English)

Ht: 5' 7"            Wt: 136 lbs.    Marital Status: single

Age:  27       Eyes: black

Hair: Nearly black, appears dark brown in sunlight, shoulder-length.

Scars/ Birth Marks/ Tatoos: bad scarring on her right leg from a freshwater crocodile attack when she was young.  No visible tattoos.  Has a 'P' branded onto her right forearm.

Body Build: lean, but well-muscled.

Profession: Quartermaster

Known Skills: skilled in keeping books, reading, writing, doing math, bartering and procuring supplies.  Also, good with a cutlass and throwing knives.  

Relatives: No close relatives due to disease introduced by Spaniards, and raids by the Moro pirates on her home.

Semi-brief (;)) Known History:  Grew up near Jambangan, on Mindanao in the Philippines.  When she was young (about 12), she was attacked by a freshwater crocodile while bathing, leaving her right leg scarred.  She survived and grew to adulthood.  Disease introduced by the Spaniards killed all of her grandparents and her mother, leaving her to essentially assume the role of head woman in their family.  Her father and brothers were all later killed or presumed dead during an attack by the infamous Moro Pirates, and Buwaya was captured, at age 18.

Not much is known about how she escaped, how she became a pirate herself, or how she found her way to the Caribbean.  She has clearly had a run-in with the Dutch East India company, as she bears their brand.  She has been in the Caribbean for about 5 years, crewing on whatever ship will have her.


As for her avatar, I'll have to email it to Shal or something.  I'd forgotten RP doesn't have an attach file option! :blush: :p  Its a cropped version of this:  http://www.donatoart.com/cartog.html

Name: Morgan   (Nickname, but not to his face: Snake )

Age: 30

Ht: 6' 3"

Wt: 200 # solid muscle but very atheletic, agile

Eyes: Deep Blue     Hair: Black, thick and worn very long.

Background: Obviously Navy at some time or other, doesn't speak of it but is highly educated and intellegent.  Speaks and reads at least a bit of several languages besides English, and curses fluently in quite a few.  Has been around the world and knows much odd trivia.

Doesn't speak much...beneath the broad tattoo that encircles his neck is a scar that shows full well that some one once tried to slit his throat, and failed to finish the job.

He has three Boas, one of which is always riding on his shoulder.  The snakes are ill tempered, and don't like any one but him. He takes very good care of them, and they are usefull in hunting down rats and mice.  He insists that they have the run of the ship, and no one is likely to naysay him.

He is Very good with swords, throwing knives and pistols.  Isn't all that bad with a bull whip. He can be very patient teaching others what he knows but is very short with 'lubbers'.

Normal wear is snug fitting black cotton pants tucked into knee boots and a black leather vest.

That's Jack's First Mate?  With someone like him, who needs a crew? Meep.  Looks like the parrot better keep a lookout for them snakes.  :p

Anyone know how tall Jack Sparrow is supposed to be?  I know he isn't all that tall compared to most others as seen in the movie.  I am guessing 5'8"-5'10"?

There is still one position left open.  XT seemed interested in playing when I last spoke to him.  If anyone can reach him, tell him there is still room, but it looks like I've got almost all I need.  What do you thing Shal?

After googling, this website (http://www.johnnydep...description.htm ) says 5'10"

Okay, I have my character idea, but full bio to follow.

Basically, he's a mute jack of all trades, at least on the ship.  He's probably pretty handy in a Smithy if there's a stop on land.

So, he can't speak, but can hear, gesture, probably write as well.

Oh, and prefers throwing knives to most other weapons.

Also, I will set the gaming thread up soon.  I am tired today necause I partied to hard last night.  That's my excuse.  At least this gives everyone time to polish and submit their profiles and me time to review them and see what I have and what I can do with them.  In due time, friends.  In due time :)

Just to let every one know, I am taking DDM to a new server (cheaper, more band width, bigger memory, MYSQL, and a host of other goodies )

So the page at DDM won't be going up untill that move is done, about a week I should think.

Avatar: DancingDownMoon Page 3, Row 4, Picture 1

Name: Black Raeven Bonny

Ht. 5'7" Wt. 140

Age: 28 Eyes: emerald green

Hair: Shoulder length blue/black hair

Scars/Birthmarks/Tattoos: Sun tattoo on her left shoulder, black rose on her right hip.

One scar on the right side of her face (running from temple to jaw) She rejected the advances of her previous Captain, he cut her face to make her unattractive to anyone else, fortunately for her, being a surgeon she managed to stitch the wound neatly and the scar is fine and straight and barely noticeable.

Body Build: Womanly, but toned. She has tanned, fairly leathery skin from working outdoors all her life.

Profession: Surgeon on the pirate ship Black Pearl

Known Skills: First class surgeon...so it goes without saying that she is deadly with all forms of sharp, pointy weapons! She can speak several languages, having travelled the seven seas from an early age.

Relatives: Father and mother - deceased, killed by pirates when she was a baby, she had no memories of them or any other surviving siblings.

Known History: She was raised by the pirates who killed her parents....she spent all her time with the ships surgeon and his wife, until they were forced to walk the plank for excessive 'drinking', the surgeons curse!

At the tender age of 18 she was 'promoted' to the rank of Surgeons mate, she studied hard and when she had learnt all she could she arranged a tragic accident for the then surgeon and took his place. She has worked for various Captains, eachone worse than the last...her utlimate aim is to have her own vessel - until then she bides her time attending to the wounded of the black Pearl and performing suitably gross operations to keep the ships cook entertained.
