    ray, if you need a hand, ill help you look around. I think we should be able to simply choose if we want our own ships or to be a member of someone else's crews simply by our intro threads.

    Yarr, Dwarf Pirate be I!

    heres some stuff:

    I'm just going to say, we should DEFINETLY all be on the same ship. That way, if someone doesn't post, it won't be completly dependent on them.

    And plus, it's easier to make a plot if everyones on the same ship.

    We should definetly do this, and get it out soon, before i just dies.

    Ray, you should be the captain, if you want. You are the creator, considering Kenny died.

    And WS, its up to you guys. I'll go for anything.

    Ken, you are the creator, so you should get first rites and whatnot. I just thought you WERE dead.

    I agree with the all on one ship idea, it would make things easier, but it does limit people's independency, since they can' design their own ship and crew. I think we could be in groups, or alternately, people who want to be captains can have a ship, and we could be a small flotilla of pirate ships, commanded by admiral cap'n Ray.

    Just an idea, lets get this rolling!

    And here's some pirate information:

    Types of Pirate:

    Pirate
    Viking
    Buccaneer
    Corsair
    Privateer
    Marooner
    Freebooter
    Filibuster

    What they looted (mainly):

    Pieces of eight
    Jewelery
    Wine
    Cloth
    Maps
    Sugar
    Slaves
    Cattle
    Medicine
    Fish (why? They weren't strong enough, and need food)

    Weapons:

    Cutlass (due to all the ropes so it didn't get caught in the ship's rope)
    Brass Knife (Iron rusts, brass doesn't)
    Axe (cut ropes holding sails up - ships can't escape then)
    Tar bomb (tar on the end of a rope, light it, lob it onto an enemy vessel, and it sticks)
    Flintlock pistols and rifles
    Marlin spikes (Tools for working with ropes. Weapons were locked away by the captain, so in mutinies the crew would use these to stab him)
    Grappling hooks
    Buccaneer Knives (Shorter than cutlasses, but still thick)
    Duck's foot (flintlock pistol with four barrels, all joined togethor so it looked like a duck's foot.)

    Master Gunner's orders for firing a cannon:

    'Cast off the tackles and breechings.'
    'Seize the breechings'
    'Unstop the touch-hole'
    'Ram home wad and cartridge'
    'Shoot the gun-wad'
    'Run out the gun'
    'Lay down handspikes and crows'
    'Point your gun'
    'Fire!'

    Pirate ship names:

    Black Joke
    Delight
    Flying Dragon
    New York Revenge
    Night Rambler
    Queen Anne's Revenge
    Snap Dragon
    Speedy Return
    Sudden Death
    Tiger

    yeah whatever you guys wanna do, I think what I want to do now is go back and write a pretty much full intro to set up the plot and such. I'll post it up, you guys give feedback, and I can make changes if necessary.

    edit: it turned out that its not extremely full, but I think its a decent setup.

    Highwave City. the only port on the largest body of land on the watery Xyrchion. (About as large as Europe). High wave is the only way off the island, seeing as how most of the entire western half of the nameless continent is dense, unexplored jungle. this makes the port a mecha(sp?) for sellswords, vendors, aspiring sailors, and of course, pirates. The port isn't the cleanest or most civilized city either. The marketplace, as well as most every other area in the town, are crawling with pickpockets, theives, and murderers.

    Layout - Highwave is built in a large circle around a towering central lighthouse. The city has three districts.
    The Market - Where merchants hawk their wares. pickpocket's heaven.
    Living Quarters - where all the non-sailor folk dwell. homes range from old shacks to large mansions.
    The docks - many taversn can be found here, as well as fish markets, and of course, the incredibly large docks. Hundreds of ships are constantly docked in the bay, with their sails constantly blowing in the ever present wind of the world.

    Now, as for getting the story started, I think we should all start out in the port. If your character is a veteran pirate, maybe he or she can be looking for new crew members. And if your character's an aspiring pirate, what better place to start?
