cap, captain miss america

this is for rick and jack especially but anyone else who i can beg and plead with.

Shiver needs badass characters! For some reason everyone is applying with teenaged girls!

*makes puppy eyes*

and in addition, i need to inform you all that i had the MOST DISTURBING DREAM EVER. i dreamed i was married to justin timberlake and he was making fun of my record collection. :( i think i met him because i had an apprenticeship as an assistant choreographer or something weird. it was really bizarre, we were living in a college dorm and gave campus tours in our free time. and we were taking helicopter-flying classes. but the mocking my record collection kind of pissed me off. he liked 16 horsepower, though.

I'm a little frightened of your game now after reading the list of colonial laws. >_> How do the pirates come into this?

the entire game is centered around a storyline with a cursed pirate ship and a crew who made a pact with the devil...which is why it's so frustrating having all these colonists, because it's kind of difficult to work them into things. :P

if'n ye be wantin' t' play a pirate, matey, just make 'im betwixt ships. then 'e kin work 'isself into things 'owever 'e'd be likin'.

(Deleted comment)

britta, if you can think of anyone else who'll play, either WR people or others, just tell them to apply and let us know you sent them.

So who are we supposed to roleplay? If the storyline is focused on pirates, what's with all the colonists?


Well, the idea was that the pirates will be attacking,plundering, and eventually recruiting colonists-- but since people seem to be mostly playing young girl colonists, there's nobody for pirates to fight with or recruit!

The game is set in a colony in 1640. Some stuff is going to happen to the colony that'll directly tie into the whole "pact with the devil pirate ship" storyline, but it hasn't developed in the game yet.

we had originally assumed we'd get a pretty evenly split badass-to-colonist ratio, but for some reason, everyone's just played colonists so far. for the storyline to work best, we need a pretty even mix of both.

you can roleplay anyone you want, but we really really want seedy characters right now (who don't necessarily have to be pirates -- they could be rum smugglers, sailors, even just some more seedy men from the town). any non-colonists would probably be passing through port in order to trade or find a job, and any colonists would just be living in the town.

From the main page info, it looks like the kind of characters you're looking for are colonists. That's probably why you're lacking in the seediness.

Would a character that gets recruited by pirates contribute to the need of badassage?

Q: Can I play a pirate?

You can't join as a pirate, but there will be opportunities to become one during the course of the game...

Because of this, I think you're discouraging the whole seedy character thing. Maybe you should advise it a bit more heavily in the FAQs?

Yeah, we're going to go back and rewrite all that. Thanks. ^^;;

Yeah, it was sortof confusing for me. ^_^* Though I'm easily confused.
I'll join up later on, then. Aye aye!
And my final question is this: do you need a male or female? Either is completely fine. :)

I think males at the moment, but if you enjoy it, you can pick up a female later.

eeee very excited!

i don't think she's filled out her userinfo yet.

Can GBD make an appearance as Head Wench at the tavern? >) She'll be very good and I can edit out the Thong Magic if I must. ;)

Yeah, why does everyone want to play goody-goodies, anyway??

Hey, wait... can guys be Tavern Wenches, too? Cause, ya know, you said everyone wants to be a teenaged girl... >)

Would a less-teenaged wench be in order? Or do you really *need* a certain sort of character? Teacher? Merchant? Artisan? Noblewoman?
I can really role play anything you really need, just let me know.

We're really looking for anything that isn't a 17 year old girl at the moment... older teen boys, men and women in their 20s, older women, older men...If you can come up with someone who would have to work with pirates (a docker, a shipper, etc...we have a blacksmith already) or could otherwise have a connection with them, all the better.

I think you're right about the FAQ-- the problem is, we wanted to discourage people from joining with characters who were *currently* pirates, but we weren't trying to discourage seedy characters. I think we'll look back over that and try to reqrite it a bit.

:) Just mention that you need less-reputable characters, too, though they can't be pirates from the get-go. Just concise-ify the FAQ--"we really need all manner of characters, not just your common commoner; the bad and the ugly have to be in there, too" ^_^ Or something like that, making slightly more sense. LOL
Anyways, dunno if anyone said;
"This is bloody brilliant! God save the queen!!"

My original character concept, before I knew what the game was about, was basically a tavern wench, though she leaned more towards loose woman. Should have actually sent it in.

I will try to think of a bad ass guy but ask Aaron or someone from WR, they are good with those...

Weird dream! Hope you have a better one next time!
