I need a goddess or someone to set me up a "heavy freeform normal" game with the title: "Pirates".

Sir Francis Drake was a privateer, he had Royal warrant to do and behave as he wished as long as he brought Liz that Spanish gold.

Well, he was a privateer to some, a pirate to others. *Shrugs* Like I said, all in the eye of the beholder. Though I would rather like to behold Captain Jack Sparrow... *Giggles and drools*

Well...there'd be private parts obviously... ;)

I'd like to have you for number 1 in a freeform. I'll do the herm and you and another player (that have volunteered via PM) will run the two female friends. I'll set up the game to get us started (in a few hours). I'll put it in the one-shots section for now.

Obviously ;)
Sounds good - I'll be waiting :*

Well, according to you English types.  :)  According to the Spanish, he was a pirate.  Tehcnically he was a pirate anyway, since he didn't get his Letters of Marque until after he returned to England with a king's ransom in Spanish gold.  Queen ELizabeth issued them retroactively.  :)

I'll add a few more names, though:

Henry Morgan (technically an English privateer, pirate according to the Spanish)
Black Bart Roberts (100% pirate, also made his crew observe the Sabbath and held prayer services on a regular basis on his ship).
Mary Read
- Calico Jack Rackham
- Anne Bonney (Calico's lover)

Side note, in many cases the line between privateer and pirate was extremely thin - most privateers committed piracy when the terms of their Letters were expired.  And only Henry Morgan is known to have carried his Letters on his person at all times.  :)

Privateer/pirate

Soldier/murderer

Equal quarter can be given to both, however, I'm not going to argue the point and I am not going to block this thread with it either.

It is obvious that upon here, it will be the romantic hollywood version.

If you get someone to be able to play Jack Sparrow well enough, then I will cheer.

Funnily enough, Strangely played my first mate in live role play and he was better at being Johnny Depp, than Johny Depp was AND he was one hell of an assassin to boot!

Wouldn't mind system for pirates, but the majority's gone the way of freeform and I'm easy.  :)

Excellent! I'll just step back and let you pick setting and give any character requirements/limitations you'd like to run. I can play either male or female character, any class/race/level. I prefer point-buy for abilities and as few house-rules as possible. I have most books if you'll allow sources beyond core. I assume you'll have the game set up and organized. Let me know if you need help/input with anything :)
