    yeah, we're gonna need 3 vets tops, and thats assuming we got more people. if we dont, we may need to narrow it down to 2 or even 1.

    Coolio, well, Im in. Dunno if I shall be a vet or not. Dwarf pirate captain? Yaharr!

    Speaking of which:

    What races are around?
    Who owns the city? A syndicate of pirate lords or some old posh toff from somewhere else?
    Is there any formal military presence? Naval warships? Police or thug gangs?
    Guns? Yes or no? 18th century stuff or earlier?

    Had to be asked ;)

    Im always here to help ye out, scurvy dog!

    Later, I'll upload a vid I took whilst at Castle Cornet in Guernsey, a Channel Island off France (but owned by England:draught: )

    They fire a gun everyday at noon. These things are much louder than you can ever imagine. It isn't a small bang, like modern explosives. Its a great big boom, that rocks you to the core.

    Quote:

    The “Noon-Day Gun” is a cast iron, smooth-bored 32-pounder, Blomefield pattern, cast by Carron Foundry in 1799. Its serial number is 60208, cast into the left hand trunnion, and it carries the arms of King George III. It has a calibre of 6.41 inches. In service the gun would have fired a 32 pound iron ball to an extreme range of about 2500 yards.
