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

The blood red, golden yellow, and orange sunset painted a breathtaking backdrop for the scene of the English ship-of-the-line burning on the horizon. The last of The Harbynger's cursed crew boarded with their newfound wealth. Captain Morrigan Blackmoon, resplendant in black and crimson trimmed Captain's uniform, his longcoat whipping violently in the wind, watched the procession as he smoked from a hand-rolled West Indian tobacco leaf.

"Mister Kennedy," he said amusedly to his First Mate, "I do love the feeling of a job well done. Don't you?"

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

Captain Eccleston sat lazily in his quarters while his unimportant and generic pirate crew members tended to the ship as she made her way to Singapore.

David got up out of his chair, poked his head out the door and yelled at the closest crew member. "You!" He yelled.

"Sir?" The crew member asked.

"Are we there yet?"

"No...no sir..."

David said nothing, merely staring at the pirate.

"Well......are we there yet now?"

"No sir."

"Well...tell me when we do get there." David said before returning to his quarters. He resumed his seat at his desk, trolling over a large number of sea charts, wondering whatever he would do after Singapore.

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

"We go where the wind takes us." John said, he stepped past Renavel, out onto the deck "Alright! Hoist the anchor, were going to go show those navy dogs how to fight!" This brought a collective cheer from the crewmembers on the deck, however Renavel didn't seem happy with the answer. "Not the answer you were expecting, eh? Only thing that can be done about that is to lower those expectations of yours." With that he walked off,watching his crew get to work.

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

Renavel was still thinking off what the captain had said to her, "lower those expectations of yours..."  She was not pleased with his answer of where their destination would be, it usually showed a flaw in leadership, perhaps he himself was not sure of where they were going. 

She stared into the open ocean, the work on the ship had settled once they had gotten her (the ship) to the open ocean.  Now, she waited, stroking the falcon that was perched on her arm.  She looked back at the captain, who was looking out to the distance in the open ocean.  Renavel sighed, how she wished that her father had not been killed, everything had been set for her to be captain of their own pirate ship.

Arram cried out in one of his hunting cries, bringing Renavel away from her self pities.  She looked towards where the falcon now stared, able to make out the forms of a few merchant ships, English by the looks of it, escorted by another, smaller ship.  "Captain, ships!" she said, pointing towards the trade vessels, now getting closer...

"Commodore." Captain Forlye saluted Eric.

"What is it captain?"

"Sir, the Evenrue Dutchess has spotted a ship off their port bow, one thousand yards and closing."

"Colors?"

"She isn't flying any."

"Signal the convoy. No action is to be taken unless fired upon, or I order otherwise."

"Yes sir."

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

Captain Richard goodlad walked the deck early in the morning. he was to be escorting the govenor of St. lucia to barbados in 2 hours time. it was an important mission and richards' ship was one of the best and most powerful there was at the moment in the current fleet. except the flagship Deathswave, a grim name but it was massive warship, it had over 120 cannons and over 5 decks.
The marines where patroling the ship and the crews where at work, they where determined to make a good start. Richard put on his captains jacket and attached his rapier to his belt along with his pistol. the marine commander Thomas gave him a nod.

"Captain where about to set sail" The commander said to him
Richard merely just gave him a nod.

he sensed today was not a good day and with that he retired to his quarters with the commander to discuss the route.

"Yes Captain.  'Twas a good haul."

Kennedy watched as the vessel fell beneath the waves.

"Where to now Captain?"

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

At last, Captain Eccleston and Mauvais Froid had arrived in Singapore, ready to stock up on supplies and then return to the high seas. David and a band of crew members exited off the gangplank while the rest of the crew remained with the ship.

David walked through the cluttered and busy streets of Singapore, filled with street vendors peddling all sorts of oddities, locals arguing with one another in the native tongue, and women looking to make a quick buck in exchange for a partner that evening.

David headed for a certain hut he knew well, which belonged his favorite merchant, an old friend of his named Xing Chu-wzhong.

David walked in and saw Xing tending to various knick-knacks he had on display, polishing them and making sure they were presentable.Xing was a thin and wrinkly old fellow, dressed in loose clothing that seemed to drag behind him in a sort of wake as he moved.

"Xing!" David shouted, alerting the old man of his presence.

"Oh!...Captain Eccleston! How nice of you stop by..." Xing said coming up to David, hand outstretched. David shook the hand firmly. "Oh, just passing through, I figured I may as well restock on my supplies."


"Come in the back. I have what you need..."

David and his helpers exited from Xing's hut roughly an hour later, each pirate carrying a barrel or crate of some sort, except for David. They retraced their steps back to the docks to return to the ship.

Only when they got there, Mauvais Froid was gone. Upon returning to the docks, David's ship was completely gone. Dissappeared. No trace. No sign of it could be seen on the horizon.

"Wilkins...?" David asked one crew member who had gone into town with him.

"Sir?"

"Where...is....my...ship?!?"

"It appears to be gone, sir."

"Gone?"

"Theyuh wuh whispuhs...of a mutiny, captain. They'd been goin' on fuh some time now. 'm surprised you nevah 'eard of 'em, they'd been plannun' it fuh quite summ tahm now. Ah woulda told ya if I knew when it was gunna happun."

"I appreciate the honesty, Wilkins. Why...didn't you tell me sooner?"

"Ah figyu'd if thuh rest uh thuh crew found out Ah ratted um out, they'd've slit me gullet to groin and tossed me off the shiyup."

"Ah. Self-preservation. I can understand that."

David then whipped out his flintlock pistol, pointed it at Wilkins, and fired.

"Somebody tell me we restocked on rum, because I really need some right now."

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

"Captain, Ships!" John looked over in the direction Renavel was pointing, sure enough two ships floated on the horizon. "Oy, Cap'n, it's an EIC ship!" John grinned, EIC usually meant a good amount of valuable objects. The rest of the crew had been alerted by Renavel and Riff, and were preparing themselves. The helmsman set a course for the other ships, planing to put the larger trade ship between them and its smaller guard.

As they pulled along the ship, which seemed aware of what they were, judging from the Royal Marines lining up ready to fire on its deck, John got a sudden feeling something was wrong. "Get us away!" He yelled to the helmsman. As the ship began to pull away wooden panels lifted, revealing a hidden gun deck.  The ship opened fire, luckily most of the shots missed.  The Blood Saber was fast, she soon lost the other ship.

There was an island in the distance, and judging from the way the ship was creaking, they would need to stop to make repairs. Dark clouds began to blow in and the sky began to darken as a light rain began to fall.  They pulled the ship into a shallow bay, and the carpenter began to asses the damage. John stepped off the ship, he wanted to explore for a while. He felt like someone was watching him, from the darkness of the trees.

--

The scout returned, he was a tall thin man, appearing to be in his early 20s. He strode up to the ship, climbing the net that had been thrown over the side. "Captain, another ship just landed, they are close to the site."  The large man rose from what he was doing, turning to face his scout. "We will strike at night."

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

"Captain?....Captain?" Solomon knocked softly on One-eyed Willie's door. Solomon sighed. THey had just reached Tortuga and the captain needed to go ashore on business. Solomon was about to turn when the door burst open.

"That BETTER not be you Sally or so help me!" Willie yelled, slamming his hat on his head.

"Captain, we have arrived at Tortuga." Solomon replied.

"Oh, good on ya Sally. Clean up the mess." Willie said and jerked his thumb into the room at the puddle of vomit next to his bed.

His crew was docking the ship as Willie walked down the length of it. They strapped it to the dock and Willie walked off the ship and straight past the dock master, they had an arrangment, he didnt need payment.

Willie walked through the chaotic streets of Tortuga with 3 of his men at his side. It was recruitment time once again. A recent raid had killed many of his men that need replacing.

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

As Riff, Ren, and John explored the island, the three of them got the feeling that someone - or something- had their eyes peeled open and followed the trio's every movements. As the pirates moved further into the jungle, less light was showing. "Cap'n, are the trees covering us, or is it getting dark?" Riff and the others weren't sure, but the trees actually were moving to block out the sun. One of the other pirates from the crew, Twigg, who had journeyed along, turned around and ran back to the ship. Little did the group know they would never see him again. As Twigg ran back, a tree root stuck out and tripped him. Getting up, he faced a band of what looked like men who should've died, but still walked with life in them. Unsheathing their swords, they advanced. And when Twigg turned around, he found himself only to be surrounded. As the group continued walking, they heard a scream from far away, but were unable to determine if it had been Twigg or not.

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

The Grâce à Dieu was strolling on the seas. it was a nice day, about 3pm. the govenor had become 'irritating' so Richard had locked himself in his captains room and was reading letters from his wife he had recently received. it was boring, Richards feelings about being attacked had subsided. the crew was sunbathing practically. but the marines stood disciplined on the decks. Muskets slung over the shoulder they would remain looking out at...nothing. without moving. The marines who where off duty even took up teaching the crew swordsman ship and musket lessons on seagulls. it was sad but it was better than lying about.

Richard opened the door and walked to the upper deck.

"CAPTAIN ON DECK!" Thomas shouted
The crew stood to attention and saluted
"Stand easy fella's, stand easy" Richard waved his arm effortlessly.

"hows things going Marine" Richard asked a marine who was standing on guard

"All is fine sir, we've got some ship activity, an exchange of fire too from the north east but where unable to tell what it is and who's it is. its just a siloette" the marine pointed out.

Richard whipped out his eye sight and pointed it to the direction of the ships.
They where pirates, they had black ragged sails and a small sloop class ship of some sort

"There pirates, no threat to our ship, continue as planned where here now anyway, i'll inform the fleet here" Richard told the crew; the ship looked far bigger in the distance than it actually was.

The marines, richard and the govener walked off the Grâce à Dieu.

"That will be all Captain, thank you for your protection" The govenor curtsyed and spun on his heels and walked off.

"Marines, you have the day off, FALL OUT!" Richard shouted to the marines, with that they spun on there heels to the right and marched 3 paces and where off to the bar no doubts,
"You too crew!, everyone be prepared to move with an hours notice!" Richard then shouted to his crew

with that Richard himself joined Thomas and walked to the nearest bar.

A smile crept upon Kennedy's face.  "Yes.  Captain."

"ALL HANDS!  LET'S GET THIS GOD FORSAKEN SHIP TO TORTUGA!  HOW ABOUT IT LADS?!"

A rousing cheer went through the pirates on deck below as they busied themselves with their tasks.

"Would you like me to take the helm Captain?"

Captain Blackmoon spun on his heels in a military step, the swirl of his longcoat embellishing his movement as he walked towards the hatch leading belowdeck.

"Of course you may, Mister Kennedy. At this moment, the helm is yours."

With that, he made for the Captains Quarters, leaving the Harbynger's cursed crew to their shiply duties.

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

(ok people...I'm going to do a bit of timaporting, not much, no ones really doing anything, just so its dark out)


John, Renavel and Riff had returned to this ship. The carpenter was done, but the crew had began to make a fire, they had caught a pig, they could have fresh meat tonight. The sky was cloudy, but not so much as to block out the moon. No one noticed Twigg's absence, he was newer. The fire had not yet been lit, and no one noticed the four figures approaching in the darkness


--


Bane had chosen three of his best, and so they set off for the ship. Bane had learned that someone may have had learned of the location of his heart. As had many of the other Cursed, he had cut his heart out and hid it. He had buried it here,  about one foot under the sand, about four feet out at sea.He didn't want to take the chance that some drunken pirate would stumble across it if their ship had scraped the covering sand away. His only option was to either kill them all or try to sneak in and take it. Bane chose the fist option. He approached, the moonlight revealing his true form. His clothes hung from his skeleton, his red eyes seemed to glow in the darkness.


--

John had decided to talk to Renavel, he wondered what had caused her to join his ship, and he thought that getting to know his crew well never hurt. He wasn't about to make the same mistake his predecessor had. "How do you like it on the ship?"

"How do you like it on the ship?" asked the Captain, who seemed interested in knowing what she thought.

"It's a good to be on a ship like this, it's a bit different from my previous ship.  My father and I crewed it together, but there was a mutiny and he was killed and now I'm here..." Renavel let her voice trail off hoping the captain would understand.  Both looked back at the crew who were still trying to get the fire going. 

Renavel suddenly felt a sharp pain on her throat as her breath caught in her chest.  The captain looked up just in time to pull out a pistol and fire it into the being's face who had put a blade to her throat, stunning it.  Renavel pivoted on the spot, staring at the creature, human-like in appearance accept for it was skeletal and it was not dead from it's encounter with the bullet.

Renavel and the Captain turned and ran full out towards the crew, yelling at them to get the ship underway.  It seemed like whatever the creature was, it had friends following it, chasing after them.

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

Bane charged after the fleeing pirates, one of his crew members had attacked to early. The cursed man stood for a moment, the bone fragments of his skull reforming . A man who was obviously the captain ran after one of the crew, both of them heading to this ship, trying to climb aboard like all the others. They made it aboard, but three of the crew did not, they were grabbed by the ankles as they tried to climb away and were pulled to the sand and killed like dogs. The ship had been pulled out far enough to sail away, and soon it was out of their reach.

--

John looked back over to the crew, who were still trying to get the fire going. The carpenter, who was now obviously drunk, staggered over and said something. He looked back over and reached for one of his pistols quickly. He leveled it at the cursed thing holding Renavel and shot it. It didn't die but its skull shattered and began to slowly reform. "GET TO THE SHIP!" He yelled, alerting the others who began to climb aboard the ship. A group of them diverted to drag the ship out to sea as the others climbed aboard. When they were all safe (aside from the ones that had been caught by the cursed) John made his way to the back of the ship and looked back, the other two seemed to be working on pulling something from the sand, the apparent leader stood watching the ship pull, a cloud covered the moon and it was a man again.

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

Up on the ship, Riff distantly heard the captain telling everyone to retreat onto the vessel. Seeing a couple of men chasing after the crew, Riff grabbed his pistols and numerous knives, and slid down the ship via a nearby rope. Pulling out both pistols, he took aim.

(Has a Dragon tattoo on his chest)
Personality: Loyal to those he believes deserves his loyalty, and fierce to his enemies.  Has an insatiable thirst for the sight of gold, and aims to have his own hoard one day.  However, he is incredibly unlucky, and often falls prey to unfortunate circumstances.
WOC: He uses a cutlass, one flintlock pistol, and a Persian sword as backup.  He also has two dagers hidden on his person at all times.
Affiliation: He be a Pirate (like most everyone else here)
Brief History:  Drake has served under various pirate captains in his ten years of service.  At 25 years old, he has seen and experienced much.  However, after some "disagreements" with his former crew on ethical actions, such as, say, amassing an armada, and attacking a city, let's say, London, for example.  The crew marooned him on a small island, but he escaped, stowing away on an East India Trading vessel that stopped on that same island (evidently, one of their less known stockpiles of merchandise).  He escaped the ship during a pirate raid, and stowed away on that ship until they reached Tortuga.  (the funny thing about Pirates, is that while they are eager to send people to the brig, they almost never go down there if there is no one who is supposed to be down there.  If that makes any sense)  Anyways, after that whole escapade, he se out in search of yet another crew....

Drake so far, was having no luck, as per his norm.  Most crews to berth in Tortuga these days either had a full compliment of crewmen, or were in a hurry.  There, apparently, as one ship earlier on tht was actively searching for new members, but where had he been?  In a bar fight, after an argument with another prospective employer.  Suffice to say, that was a difficult thing, having fought (and beaten) a ship's captain, who no doubt wanted him dead, rather than on board his ship, and simultaneously missing a captain who may have stomached his participation in his crew.  So here he was now, sitting on the pier, and staring out into the night, fully armed, but with nowhere to go.  Again.  For the sixth time since becoming a pirate...he just couldn't stick with a crew long enough....he supposed he hadn't found a good enough group of scallywags yet....

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

Richard sat in the bar discussing his next move with his marine commander.

"Captain i heard that the admiral wants you to secure the waters around Tortuga is in much despair, pirates are vast around those parts it seems"

"Yes, i have heard of that, i am not pleased with it. i have no fleet and no reinforcements, all though my ship can stand its own against any other ship if there are simply too many we would be surrounded and well that isnt good!"

"True captain, but you have new marines coming in the morning, bolstering our numbers upto 72 marines, and the crew are proving to be quite adequete with sword play and musketeering"

"Hmmm thomas i must thank you for that <he drinks the rest of his rum> i must head back to the ship and make preperation! i bid thee farewell" Richard bowed and headed out of the pub.

it was a full moon tonight. it was creppy, not as though the moon was white but it had a pale shade of red in it, like blood. not a good sign at all

Richard sighed and walked upto his ship. the marines stood eagerly guarding

"Captain" A marines nodded his head and aknowledged his captain


Richard came out ready to amass his crew as he stepped out onto the deck he noticed they where already working! this was truly a magnificant site. his crew had took it upon themselves to get the ship moving to tortuga.

Richard hand on rapier leaned back and smiled, he withdrew a fine cigar from his pocket and lit it. he took a few puffs before giving a marine, who was travelling to the sleeping quarters, a cigar.

"Fancy a smoke with me Major?" Richard asked the marine

"Why of course captain" He smiled and took the cigar of Richard. Richard then lit the marines cigar up for him

"I take it you are looking forward to fighting more pirates, and those rumours of 'undead' out there HA!" Richard remarked to the Major

"Hahaha! Undead pirates! i have never heard anything so popostourous in all my career!" The Major chuckled heartidly, puffin away on the cigar

"You said it Major! and even if there are undead, i would like to see them face up to MY ship! and your marines! HA! theres no finer shot in this world than the marines i have under my command such as yourself major!" Richard, still laughing, said

"Why captain you embarrass me!" The Major spoke back

"Major what would be your name?" Richard asked

"The name is Sharpe captain" Major sharpe answered.

"and my name is Richard, and on that note i bid you good night...Sharpe" Richard nodded, shook sharpes hand and departed sharpe to explore his deck and motivate his crew.

Sharpe smiled and opened the door leading to the lower decks.

"Undead pirates Ha....!" he chuckled before disapearing into the lower decks

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.

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

Above decks as his crew hurried to pull into a little known hidden harbor on Tortuga's least populated side, Captain Blackmoon breathed in deep the ocean air. He felt a small pang of sorrow that since he'd left the ranks of the truly living, he could never truly feel the beauty of the ocean's salty carress. It was there, but muted and dulled, made lifeless by years of his wretched curse.

Is this truly a better existence than an afterlife in bondage to Davy Jones, the Devil himself?

His small moment of thought was punctured by the voice of his First Mate.

"Aye, Captain we've arrived at Tortuga...What are your orders?"

He took a long, slow drag of his pungeant cigar, one of few pleasures in his cursed state.

"Mister Kennedy, prepare a raiding party. It's time these sorry dogs are reminded of the Dreaded Morrigan Blackmoon..."

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

David was in a bar in Singapore drinking heavily with the members of his left-behind crew that he hadn't since killed. There were about 12 in all, counting the former captain.

"What am I...what am I gonna do..." David moaned, reeling from such a betrayal.

"Perhaps we could...start fresh, maybe?" One pirate asked.

"I suppose. Get another crew together, and whatnot? But we still need a ship..."

"Perhaps a crew first, then a ship...?" The other pirate, a tall, blonde, french fellow named Lucas Troutman, suggested.

"a crew, then a ship...not a *hic* not a bad idea, Troutman. You *hic* you got a good head on your shoulders, for sure. You'll make a fine first mate."

"A first..." Troutman was speechless.

"Well, seeing as my former first mate stabbed me in the back and ran off with my ship, I think you'll be a worthy, and hopefully *hic* more loyal successor. Whaddya *hic* say?" David spluttered the influence of his sweet brown medicine clearly guiding his thought process.

"I...I supposes so, but sir, you're a bit....drunk...will you feel the same way once you've sobered up?"

"Abso..." David collapsed to the ground before completing his sentence.

"Well," Troutman barked to the other marooned pirates. "You heard 'im! Let's get a recruitment drive a-goin' before 'e wakes up!"

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

Drake had decided that sitting on his rear all night wasn't going to land him a job any time soon.  He stood, stretched, and reveled in the cold air against the bare skin of his arms, before turning, and heading into the confines of Tortuga.  While most Pirates wouldn't think twice about attacking someone else just for fun, tonight, at least, they were content to leave Drake alone, a situation that he did not mind one bit.

As he strolled through the streets, he felt a chil travel throughout his body, seeming to freeze his very soul with fear.  This in itself was astonishing.  There was little indeed that Matherson feared, and he had learned to ignore the chilly nights.  Why then, this sudden bought of cold?  Only one person in the world could have produced such an...effect....

"It can't be!"
