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:
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 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.
Captain:(If not captain of ship)
(Add to as needed)
Name: John Strauss
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.
