I think I remember seeing the map you did up.  I've been swamped that I hadn't gotten a chance to really check it out.  It looks absolutely great to me, as does the logo! 

Would you mind if we used it?  Without a doubt I'll give you credit for both.





Going to attempt to get through some of the sheets and PMs that have filled up the inbox later today or tonight.  Right now working through some technical issues and have to get some stuff done around the house before I can really put my mind and focus on the messages that have accumulated.

Feel free... that's sort of why I made it  :-)

On that note if anyone does have anything they want doing that requires a bit of photoshopping; edits to face claim pictures, flags/banners/signs for the various pirate ships/mercenary companies/shops etc etc feel free to give me a buzz and I'll see what I can do.

Just wanted to get your approval before I went ahead and did it :P

I thought of something about that.  Different flags, banners, crests, etc.

I've been hoping to do some signature images and an advertisement banner, I just don't have net at home so I'm limited to what I can produce until my photoshop enabled PC has net again x.x

Also... double post:

My current plans that are in the works (despite how slow regular net and general emotional upheaval RL has made me), if anyone wants to plot connections:

Female adventurer from Malum... part of a family line with rumors/family legends saying they're actually part of the Dumar family, though there's no proof or confirmation of it, just legends and that every other generation or so, a member of the family is born with some enhanced abilities (not magic, but like... better low light/night vision, reflexes, etc than the average human) that could be harkened back to dark elf ancestry. Plans for her to run in to the NPC Drakaras dude and there to be a mixture of instinctive/purposeful hatred as well as latent sexual tension. Cause who doesn't love wanting to simultaneously kill the person you're lusting after? ::)  The idea is that she's come to the island to explore the ruins and jungles. I haven't figured out exactly what she is looking for though.

A female slave trained as an assassin/spy. I don't have an owner for her yet, and I'm actually going back and forth with myself as to how long she's been on the Island or if she will just be arriving, freshly caught. Perhaps she was a spy/assassin in her old land? Someone who was very good at pretending to be whatever was needed to get close to men with power so as to do her job and then get out before anyone realized she had anything to do with it? She was captured at sea, most likely, or was betrayed and sold to slavers to take to the island. I kind of dig the betrayal bit, tbh. If anyone is interested in connections with her, like the person who brings her in and the person who buys her and the like, let me know.

A brothel madam/owner. Her first business is female flesh, but her second (and most lucrative at times) is information. Her guys and girls hear plenty they were never meant to know... Clients let things slip when deep in to their cups, make confessions in moments of love and passion, etc. She collects the information and for the right price, she might sell it to you. She is first and foremost a pragmatist, however, so her business is not directly involved in anything that could put them at too much a risk, like killings and the like, and if you let slip where you found out what she told you, you can expect to never utter another word.

Those are really awesome!

Also, what is the main port called? The one that has all the points of interest. I don't recall reading it.

For the sake of the game, I imagine this is where most of the game will be taking place/staged from.

I gather that the island and town have the same name, Effugios. Probably distinguishable by context most of the time.

Offline Aiden

I was assuming the same, but there is a part of me that wants to have a 'Port' in the name.

Port Royale
Deadman's Port
Freedman's Port
Shipwreck Port

etc etc.

But!!! But!!!!! *Hugs tight* We'll still have Hogwarts darling. I'll work on my character for it soon so that I can drive some of your lovely characters nuts.

Always super intimidated by the size and scope of these stories, but the piratey-ness has definitely piqued my interest!

Would it be alright with our esteemed Gm's if my Captain from Malum is the 3rd son in line for the Drakaras throne. The youngest child who decided to use his cunning and skill at sea to escape the shadow of his brothers?

I'm going to send you a PM about that.  I've probably gotten ahead of myself, but I've had some ideas about Malum and it's royal family.

Here's my view, and I probably should have made this known earlier/added it into the Info thread, but I just haven't gotten the breathing space to get to it.

Effugios is the name of the island.  I figured that, for the most part that Effugios would also serve as the name of the main village that's situated on the island on the beach, nestled between the fort and the volcano.

The main beach has become something of a makeshift camp of sorts, where sailors set up tents and the like for staying on the island when not wanting to pay for a room or a house, etc.  That's where boats could land, and where small cargo can be unloaded.  There's a larger port, with docks and the like, for larger cargo unloading, and larger earners who bring in more money and profit to the island.  I figured most ships would lay anchored in the harbor/bay, while the ships that provide enough resources, enough profit, and ships that bring in large cargo that can't be ferried over in smaller boats, are able to dock.

I have to say, I like Deadman's Bay as the body of water.  The port and docks/beach could be Freedmen's Port and Beach.

Looking forward to it. I had a couple of ideas about them as well.

A general announcement...  All claims are updated, I believe.  If I missed something, please don't hesitate to let me know.

I'm interested, I do believe. :)

Welcome aboard :)

I'm sad to see you go.  I was really looking forward to writing with you and seeing your character.  If you ever change your mind, you're more than welcome to return.

Mmmm.....tentatively expressing interest.  I've had a rougeish female character floating around in my mind, and she could easily fit in with a pirate crew.  I am aware it might be difficult for her at first, if nothing else, but I'm pretty sure things will turn out all right.

Edit: Skimmed through all the backstory, history, and such, think I might be more fully interested.  Just need to work with the raw information to fill out the character sheet, will try and send her in for approval tonight.  If not tonight, probably sometime tomorrow.

Excellent!

And take your time with the character sheet.  We've experience a bit of a backlog with character sheets submitted today.  Slowly working through them.
