Topic: Cursed: Pirates of the New World (RPG)

Hey, welcome to another RPG :D.
This is going to be kind of like Pirates of the Caribbean. Ok, so here we go with the rules.
No all powerful characters.

You can be a pirate, member of the Royal Navy, a member of the East India Trading Company, or finally, one of the cursed.
The Cursed are basically immortal, so I would prefer only EXPERIENCED RPers make one of those.

Be consistent. If someone sinks a ship don't suddenly see it sailing on the horizon.

Please no Timeaporting.(Like skipping ahead 8 hours, in the middle of something important)

You can kill your own characters and NPCs, but you can't kill someone else's character without their consent. You can wound them however.

If you are wounded you must seek medical attention, or die, Because of the time period, that will be hard...Lets assume theres a skilled healer in all the towns/ports

Your weapons must fit with the time period. And you must be able to carry them. So you can't run around with a cannon.

You can add twists, it would be greatly appreciated, but make sure their not, you know, plot ending....

You can have your own ship, or be a part of a crew, I would like some people to be on a crew so I don't have way to many ships going around

Thats all for now, have fun

Alright: Character types:

Pirate:
Scourge of the seas, a rough sort of folk generally, many of them live on ships, roaming the waterways and attacking merchant ships. You should know the type

Member of the Royal Navy:
In the employment of Brittan. Redcoats. They protect the ports, and hunt pirates on the sea.Includes Privateers

Member of the East India Trading Company:
Basically a Merchant's guild. Otherwise, basically the same as the Royal Navy, who they are allied with

The Cursed.:
The cursed were pirates, they joined forces and sailed for London, in an attempt to overthrow the rulers of England and take the nation for themselves. They were lost at sea and years later four ships returned, their sails ripped and their hulls rotted. On board were the cursed, twenty pirates condemned to life.Their true, skeletal forms are revealed in the moonlight, and they can only be killed by a stab to the dark, beating heart held in their chest. They can also appear as things like Davey Jones and his crew from the movie, but that is less common
They have spread, commanding their own ships once again.

Age:29
Gender:Male
Nationality: English
Occupation: Pirate
Appearance:http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff78 … s/Guy2.jpg
Weapons:Six flintlock pistols, one Cutlass.
Ship:The Blood Saber a captured East Indiaman with blood red war paint on the sides.
Brief History: Joined the crew of the Blood Saber at the age of 16, was elevated to a higer rank aboard the ship, led a mutiny, took the ship for his own.


Captain John Strauss of the Blood Saber stood at the wheel of the vessel. The fog made it diffucult to see. Docking would be difficult. He was heading to Tortuga, a refuge for those like him. His ship needed to be re stocked, and if he were to gain any new crew members it would be an added bonus.

Re: Cursed: Pirates of the New World (RPG)

Name: Captain David Eccleston
Gender: Male
Nationality: Irish
Occupation: Pirate
Appearance: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/e … Doctor.jpg
Weapons: 4 flintlock pistols, 2 cutlasses, and a dagger he stores in his boot for emergencies.
Ship: Mauvais Froid
Brief History: Was kidnapped by french pirates at a young age, grew up with them, in time took over the ship and crew.
Personality: Calm, jovial, flippant even under severe presure, but when he gets serious, he's dead serious. Brilliant strategist and all-around smart person, a sort of Jack of all trades. Occasionaly speaks in nonsensical technobabble.

Captain Eccleston kept a steady hand as he steered Mauvais Froid through the thick and soupy fog. He didn't exactly know where he was headed, but hey, they'd end up somewhere eventually, right? That's how David lived his life: Making it up as he went along, but doing it brilliantly.

Re: Cursed: Pirates of the New World (RPG)

Looks like you have a good turn out so far AA big_smile

Name: Renavel
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Nationality: all english
Occupation: Pirate, although is searching for a new crew
Weapons: Is skilled with using two lighter weight swords, carries a pistol and has a hidden dagger strapped to her ankle at all times.
Personality: loves winning, is a fierce and aggressive fighter, but when there is no threat, she can be very lade back and has a good sense of humor.
Background: father was a pirate, when her mother accidentally let slip of this, she went to go find him.  For a while, she stayed with him and his crew, until very recently when the crew led a mutiny on him, killing her father and leaving her in Tortuga.
Appearance: http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff78 … ateRPG.jpg  about 5'6"
Companion: A falcon, Arram, that her father got her when she turned 20.  Arram is completely loyal to her, always coming back after being let free.

Renavel was walking down the street, as usual, the drunken men staring her down.  She remembered why she always hated coming to port here, but her father usually discouraged these men instantly.  The thought triggered immediate sadness and rage.  Her crew, the people she had practically grown up with, killing her father and leaving her here.  She sighed, walking towards the docks, wishing that Arram was with her, but she had let him go a couple hours ago to let him get prey.  She hoped that she could find a decent ship and crew to call her new home, but that hope was beginning to fade as she looked at the ships docked there.  Arram chose that moment to come back, landing on her outstretched glove, as she continued to look around, stroking the bird for its loyalty.  A new ship caught her eye, it looked more promising then any of the others docked here...

Re: Cursed: Pirates of the New World (RPG)

John's crew secured the ship and lowered the gangplank. He slowly walked off the ship, taking in his surroundings. Tortuga was the same. A island full of drunkards, pirates, and prostitutes. It wasn't much, but you could get what you needed, provided you had something to trade in return. What John needed were supplies, and being a port, Tortuga had plenty of those. He also needed some new crew members, he had lost four men when they had boarded a galleon. Finding someone willing to join his crew wouldn't be hard, but finding someone who would be useful would.

Re: Cursed: Pirates of the New World (RPG)

Renavel stared at the ship and its crew, who had just finished securing the ship and lowering the gangplank, allowing what looked like the captain to walk off.  She watched as the crew made some final adjustments.  Interesting, she thought, a ship of that size usually had a few more members.  She remembered how some of the pirates thought it was bad luck to have a woman on board, but it couldn't hurt to ask if they could use a new addition to the crew. 

She confidently strode up to the ship and its captain.  The man seemed rather taken aback by her sudden appearance, and she saw him glance down at the falcon, who stared rather intimidatingly back up at the man.  "Thats a nice ship you have," she said, a bit nervous of asking a complete stranger for a job.  "I'm sorry, I didn't introduce myself, I'm Renavel.  I'm looking for work and I noticed that you might be in need of another crew member.  I'm well qualified, and I'll do what I'm told."  Her insides burned with a nervousness, she had never had to ask another pirate for a job, her father had always been there to guide her, and she would have been captain of the ship in a few years.  Now asking this unknown man for a job was her only way to survive, at least if she wanted to have a relatively decent life...

Re: Cursed: Pirates of the New World (RPG)

John regarded the newcomer with some surprise. Her timing was surprising. She looked like she was qualified. She could be useful, he held out his hand in an unspoken agreement. She took his hand and shook it. "Welcome aboard. We need supplies, but we're setting out soon after we restock." She nodded. John started walking away, he had a few things he felt like checking on. The streets of Tortuga were as they always were, loud. He looked over his shoulder, Renavel was following him. He continued to walk stopping in a few taverns and shops, eventually making his back towards his ship. Soon enough he was back at the docks. He got back aboard his ship, they had about finished re-stocking. He made his way to his quarters, he needed to figure out where they were going next. He had picked up a map, with trade routes for the EIC. He sat down at his desk, and began going over his charts.

Re: Cursed: Pirates of the New World (RPG)

Renavel felt semi relieved, the hard part of asking for the job now over. After telling her that they needed supplies, he started to walk off.  Not so fast, she thought, I think I want to know you a bit better before I go on board and deal with your crew.  She followed him, at a bit of a distance, watching him go about his business in and out of taverns and shops.  She did not bother him, but rather watched his nature with quiet curious eyes.  Eventually, they made their way back to the ship, which was almost finished with supplies.  She followed her new captain up the gangplank, keeping a hand unconsciously on the hilt of one of her swords.  The captain went to his quarters, and she stood on the deck, uncomfortably noticing that the rest of the crew were eyeing her suspiciously.  She sighed to herself, and stroked the falcon for moral support, she just hoped that the crew wouldn't be to bad...

Re: Cursed: Pirates of the New World (RPG)

Waking up, Riff realized that he fell asleep shortly before they docked at Tortuga. Thinking that the captain had gotten off, Riff left the ship and entered a bar, where he figured the captain would be recruiting people or bartering for supplies. When he saw no captain, Riff returned to the ship to find lights on in the captain's room. "He must've been here after i woke up." Seeing that the ship was filled with supplies and the usual work going on with the rest of the crew, Riff was relieved. Then, the most peculiar thing caught Riff's eye. A woman was standing beside the ship on the docks, eying the crew as they eyed her back. Jumping back off the ship, Riff decided to introduce herself. "Hello, there, lass. I'm not sure of your intentions, but the crew and ye seem to be staring each other down. Are you joining us? If so, I'm Riff, and am First Mate to Cap'n Strauss. Don't worry about the rest of the crew, they just like to give that glare to outsiders." Riff stuck his hand out, waiting for the woman to shake it.

Character 'Sheet':
Name: Oki Tadahiro (actually means open water, faithful ocean)
Age:30
Gender: Female
Nationality: Singapore (yes I’m aware that it’s a city not a nation)
Occupation: Pirate Captain
Appearance: Shorter than most of the Europeans, and more petite. Has beautiful clear blue almond shaped eyes. Long black straight hair that is usually elaborately braided and coiffed. Loves to wear large jewelry and does so often, along with the silks that are traditional to her area of origin.
Weapons: Carries two narrow, shorter than average blades, two short knives strapped to legs and one pistol. This is in addition to her prowess in the deadly martial arts.
Ship: The Black Opal     (Similar size to the Flying Dutchman, with similar guns to The Black Pearl from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.)
Brief History: Sold into slavery as a young girl in Singapore, she grew up longing for freedom, but learning many different valuable skills, including martial arts, along the way. At the age of 15 Oki managed to escape her bonds, by taking the cooking knife and using it to kill the slave driver when he tried to get to close and friendly with the maturing girl. In order to flee the city and stay out of slavery and being found, she disguised herself as a boy and joined the crew of a merchant vessel. Eventually this vessel was boarded by pirates and rather than killing all on board, made an offer to the survive to join the crew of the pirate ship, The Black Opal. This is how Oki made it to the new word, traveling as a merchant and pirate. Eventually after 10 years at sea, she was made First Mate, and finally made it public that she was indeed a woman, although many had known or suspected. The captain at the time, decided it did not matter, as Oki was by far more competent than the rest of the crew. This is when she began to develop her unique sense of style. She took over as captain when the previous captain died suddenly of unknown causes, but was thought to be just old age. Oki has run a strong campaign against merchant vessels ever since.

Willie pulled out his cutlass from the pirate's gut and kicked him over board.

"CAPTAIN Willie to you!" He yelled drunkingly at the falling corpse. He turned and saw the blood on deck.

"Sally!SALLY!" He called. A large, muscular black man came running out from the lower deck and stood at attention next to Willie.

"Yes-s sir?" Solomon said nervously.

"Didn't I tell you ta clean dis up!? HAH?!"

"Um-m-m no sir."

"WHAT DIDJOO SAY SALLY!!!!???" Willie yelled brandishing his bloody cutlass.

"I said that yes sir, you told me to clean up this mess."

"Thats DAMN right Sally, dont you SASS me!" Willie said and began to walk away, tossing the empty rum bottle in his left hand over board while sheathing his cutlass. Willie sighed with accomplishment. Another drunken tirade complete. He walked to the captain's quarters and collapsed upon his bed. They would reach Tortuga in a few hours, he would sober up till then......so he could get drunk again.

Captain Eccleston continued to steer Mauvais Froid through the soupy fog. He had been at it for awhile and was getting hungry.

"Tyler!" He yelled over his shoulder to the crew. "Tyler, fetch me a banana, will you?" A young blonde girl scurried down into the interior of the ship, looking for David's favorite treat. Moments later, she emerged from the barracks empty-handed. "We're out of bananas, captain!" She said.

"Whuh--wha--excuse me?!?" David was indignant. "How did we--arrgh! Out of--are you--gah! Ms.Tyler, you better not be joking here..."

"No sir, see for yourself."

"Fine, I will." David stepped down from the wheel and got a nameless and unimportant crew member to steer the ship.

Moments later, David and his crew had set a course for David's favorite port to stock up: Singapore.

Character 'Sheet':
Name: Captain Morrigan Blackmoon
Age: unknown, appears to be in his mid 40's.
Gender: male
Nationality: English
Occupation: Cursed Pirate Captain
Appearance:
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj257/Virulent_Messiah/Captain_Blackmoon.jpg
Weapons: 2x English Flintlock Blunderbuss w/ Grenade cups, 2x French Flintlock Dagger/Pistols, cutlass, a large collection of exotic blades and daggers.               
Ship: The Harbynger, has 5 staysails making it easer to sail against the wind than running before the wind. It is armed with port and starboard guns. It carries 46 broadside 6 pound guns, 23 on each side; 18 guns are located on the main deck, 20 on the gun deck, and 8 on the upper deck: 4 on the quarter-deck and 4 in the forecastle. The gunports on the gun deck are in the shape of wailing, tormented faces, with the ports appearing at the mouths. Its full broadside contains 23 cannonballs, called shot, and weighs one hundred and 62.652 lbs. (38 kg). On the bow however, she mounts a pair of bow chasers, each in the form of a triple-barreled gun. Each separate barrel fires individually, but the trio rotates to present a fresh barrel to fire again in the style of a Gatling gun. The empty barrel can then be reloaded for its next turn. This enables The Harbynger to continually fire at the ships it is pursuing. http://www.allakhazam.com/e3/media/frontpage/POTCO---GhostShip1_Disney.jpg
Brief History: Formerly a British noble, the man who came to be known as Morrigan Blackmoon, was disgraced and removed of his nobility and holdings. No longer a member of the English court, he took a new name and became a pirate. He and his crew soon grew to notoriety for their attacks against the Royal Navy's vessels. Having joined forces with other pirate captains, they all sailed for London, attempting to overthrow the rulers of England and take the nation for themselves. After some infighting among the captains, they were lost at sea and years later only four ships returned, their sails ripped and their hulls rotted. On board were the cursed, twenty pirates condemned to un-life. Their true, skeletal forms are revealed in the moonlight, and they can only be killed by a stab to the orb of darkness that resides in their chests. Having removed his heart and hidden it for safe keeping, Blackmoon seems truly undefeatable...

Re: Cursed: Pirates of the New World (RPG)

Name: Mary O’Malley
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Nationality: Irish
Occupation: Healer by day, Barmaid by night
Appearance: http://biblioklik.free.fr/abandonwares/ … rley03.jpg
Weapons: Mainly an array of daggers she keeps hidden on her person. Plus a few poisonous potions for good measure
Brief History: Mary was born to a poor Irish family and was taught by her mother about the healing properties of various herbs. At the age of 14 she was spotted by an Indian trader named Zeb Prakash who wanted to marry her. With a sizable amount of money exchanged to Mary’s father, Mary found herself betrothed to Zeb. After they married, they travelled from port to port until Zeb found a need for snuff.

With Zeb supporting a snuff addiction Mary is left to fend for herself. She has become a famous healer and is often sort after when she is working of an evening as a barmaid. Thankfully her husband is still alive so she can use him as an excuse to turn down many admirers.

Mary is looking for a better life and has a feeling that her opportunity may lay in the direction of the sea.

-

As Mary placed a handful of ales on the table she heard a series of wolf-whistles as her backside was faced at some patrons in the opposite direction.

"Now there's a fine piece of crumpet," one Englishman sniggered.

"Aye, pity she's still got her clothes on," another said and they burst into laughter.

Mary turned around and placed her hands on her hips, "One the crumpet is not deaf and two she's a married woman."

"Oh I beg your pardon ma'am," the first man said as he did a mock bow while his friends tried to hold back their laughter.

Mary eyed him up and down, "Well I can see your certainly the type that needs to beg."

An uproar of laughter followed as she walked away. Chances were the men would be so drunk by the end of the evening that they wouldn't even remember that she existed.

Mary moved to the bar and was handed another four ales by the barman named Maurice, "T'is for the gents up the back."

Mary eyed the corner to where Maurice was pointing and groaned quietly. It was the red coats and half the time the men thought they were able to get away with blue murder. Mary picked up the mugs and made her way over.

Renavel eyed the man slowly and grasped his outstretched hand.  "I'm Renavel, and I will indeed be joining you as part of the crew." she said.  "Is this a good ship to be on?  My last wasn't quit as grand,"she asked, looking over the ship, which had red paint on it's side, but was non-the less, good looking.  The man, Riff, led her onto the ship, explaining some of their best voyages.  When they got on the deck, the crew was still eyeing her suspiciously...

Climbing aboard, Riff answered Renavel's question. "Oh, we've quite a fine ship. The rest of the crew tends to be crabby about new members 'n all, but they'll get used to you in a week. Mind if I just call you Ren? I guess I oughta take you to the Cap'n, 'e's in 'is room reading some maps 'bout where to head out next." Riff knocked on the door to the Captain's quarters, and let Renavel in.

I am the Hammer. I am the sword in His hand, I am the point of His spear. I am the Gauntlet about His fist. I am the Bane of His foes and the woes of the treacherous. I am the End.

John stared down at the nautical charts on his desk. There were two paths on his map, and one of them disappeared in the middle of the ocean. There was a quick knock at his door and he pulled another chart over the one he was studying. The door opened and Renavel walked in, followed by Riff.  John walked over to greet them. "How do you like the ship?"

Renavel walked into the captain's quarters, looking over at the desk which was covered in maps.  Captain Strauss walked over to greet Riff and her. 

"How do you like the ship?" he asked.

"It's a lovely vessel," she replied truthfully.  She looked back over to the maps and voiced the question that had been sitting in her head since the moment she joined the crew, "Is there any chance you could tell me where we're headed Captain?"

( sorry but it was actually a ship way back in the 1600's which was an english ship but was called henry's grace of god in french, so i took the henry off and called it mine =], the english always name stuff in foreign languages xD)

Richard began walking up the ramp to his ship, his marine detachment stood and saluted him.
"sir we have 38 marines on this including myself to see to yours and the crews protection"

Richard returned the salute and landed his hand on the marines shoulder
"Why thomas, you do not need to salute an old friend, i am reassured by your marines protection, you have some excelllent muketeers here. i thank thee"
with that the marine commander, thomas, smiled and said
"Thank you captain, great ship by the way, looks like naval command likes you" as he walked away giving him a wink.

"listen up men! you've got tonight off to get a drink, you shall be paid later so enjoy your night, were off hunting tomorrow, and dont be coming back with hang overs" he shouted, he gave a cheeky grin and retired to his quarters for the night, he would write to his wife and children, then study the navigation charts and maps before sleeping. he'll be needing it.
