The perils of tight pants

Posted 1 day ago


We have action, we have NPCs you are free to control, we love people with initiative. And we are not the usual sandboxy RPG, neither a narrative-driven one, but a story-focused writing community where each actively writing characters can make a difference and an impact on the overall plot. We are writing collaboratively a coherent story with many sideplots aside of it.

We have 4 ships of various allegiances to crew and islands belonging to the French and British crown to populate. Men aboard any ship are strongly recommended as first characters, and civilians as secondary ones. No more female sailors are allowed.

It’s 1720 in the West Indies. Peace is to be signed soon, and the former enemies will get allied against the common foe - pirates, looting indiscriminately. Privateers remain in the business only for hunting pirates. Will our pirate crew survive?

Which side are you on? Sharpen your blades, load your guns, drain that last sip of rhum and join our adventures, spreading death BEFORE THE MAST!
