Avast Ye!
« on: August 27, 2003, 08:18:55 PM »
Okay, here's the skinny:

Cinematic, swashbuckling, pirate tale of derring do and such.   I'll be using Savage Worlds to run it, which is very light and is made to handle lots of characters (such as a boarding action) not that it matters since I'll be doing all the rolling and such.  

The way your characters are described to me we'll have some varying power levels, which is fine since advancement isn't tied into combat ability as in D&D.  Savvy?

It will be a light fantasy game and I will probably pick up and use 50 Fathoms once it comes out in fact.  So monkey-boyish folks fit right in.  There are 2 other races available on PEG's website in the 50 Fathoms preview in fact.  Just if you're interested.

Also, I'll probably take six players to start out with.  Hopefully that won't be too many.  I'm happy to take any suggestions.

Ok, how do I play? What do I do? How many times do you have to lick a tootsie pop to get to the center?

Obviously, you've already accepted me and MoD who have character ideas?

If not, I'm putting my vote in to play, esp since Fell said I have to help design setting. Mr. P, if you need/want my help, send me an email.


AAAARRRRR!!!!

(side note, one of my co-workers is like Pirates of Carribean SO Much that he walked around talking like a pirate for 3 weeks. It still comes up occasionally. Until last night, when another co-worker suggested Chinese pirates. Now he wakes around saying "Rok the prank rand rubbers!" and "Ahhhhhhhllllllllll!"

Hey, punks, I made you a brand new board to post all this stuff in. Don't you even care? This is why we can't have nice things.

I would love to play, if there is room. I have an idea for the geeky darwin character who gets picked on by the other pirates.

You're in, 42.  

Uh.... Urine 42?  Nah.

As a big fan of the big CD myself, I think a Darwinesque scholarly character would be hoot and could make for some really entertaining interactions.

Just head on over to our brand new shiny forum for the rules...

Fell, I thought we couldn't have nice things because we flaunt them in front of the neighbors and then use them to summon unholy beings from other planes of existence.

But maybe it's because we ignore that they exist. My bad.

Now thats a funny idea. Kinda like an illithid, only more annoying.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)
