Introduction

Pirates... Here and now, in the year 2013, when we hear the word we'd think of many things. Realistically, we know pirates were like the Norwegian Vikings, looters and destroyers of villages who sailed, never having a home on land. But, our imaginations picture Pirates as the kind we see in movies, those who fight sea beasts and search for hidden treasure. Have you ever thought that our imaginations were actually the closest to being right?

There was a tribe on a small island off the coast of Africa. They were ahead of their time, being quite genius. They were also so rich with gold that it almost lost it's value. They had so much gold they didn't know what to do with it. They built castles and houses out of it, chariots and even armor too. They had so much gold they began throwing it into the ocean! But, one day, they heard a rumor of an even more precious stone- diamond. It had been found on an island they they thought wasn't too far away. So they sent a crew of twenty men on a ship called "The Seashell" to go find this island.

It was three weeks before the crew spotted land. Everyone was exhausted and, even though they didn't know if it was the right island, wanted to get on land for a little while. But, something must have gone wrong because they never were seen again... For a while.

Soon, small European villages were raided and burnt down by human like Pirates who's only inhuman feature were their eyes, a glowing red, and strange fungi that grew on their arms, legs, and faces in patches, looking different on each of them. And once they had raided the village, they would sail away on their ship. This was the crew of The Seashell, but a horrible curse had befallen them.

One night they raided a village of more sophisticated Englishmen, who abducted two of the young crew members during the raid and sent the Pirates back to the seas. Once word had reached the Pirates that their young crew members had been hanged, they were furious and raided again in the night, taking four people of the village's as payback, making them and that Englishmen village enemies.

Before they could kill the villagers, the villagers told them that they would take them to an island that had many riches if they would only spare their life. Being too greedy to refuse, they set out for the island, unaware of the dangers they would face.

You are apart of the crew (or a captive) aboard The Seashell trying to get to the treasure, but being faced by many dangers ahead. Will you fall in love with one of the captives? Will you stay loyal to your captain? Will you try and smuggle all the gold yourself? Will you be a hero or a coward? The choice is up to you.

OR


You are apart of the Englishmen crew of the Waterbird, trying to get your citizens back and destroy the evil Pirates who have terrorized your village at all costs. Will you die for the cause or live until you see your enemies suffer?

The characters will be mostly men, with a few female captives, just because of the time period. There should be about 30 roles available, although I do NOT expect that many players. Please add pictures to your character sheet. I prefer drawings since they're easier to find, but if you find a real one that is fine to use also.

Toggle Rules

1. Although this is about Pirates, don't curse like a sailor. I prefer you not use profanity. :)

2. No sex... Romance is encouraged, but no one wants to read about your character's PDA (Private Display of Affection in this case)

3. Comic is the empress of this roleplay- obey her commands!

4. Be active in the OOC! A good OOC makes a good roleplay, so they say.

5. To show me you've read the rules, put "spontaneous combustion" at the bottom of your character sheet.

6. No Mary or Gary Sues. You're awesome, but nobody is perfect.

7. Make your posts 300 words minimum. If you aren't able to do that, you won't be accepted.

8. Try to include others because it's never fun to be on your own, but don't pester people to include you either. If their busy, try some other time.

9. Drama in the roleplay is good- Drama outside of the roleplay is bad.

10. Let me make the first post.

11. Feel free to double up on characters, not that you have to. Sometimes it's hard to maintain even one characters.

12. Have fun. :)

"It is now at risk because the darn historian is now free on the ship. And she locked me down here. Of course, that doesn't mean I'll be completely dead since I can always make up a lie, but whatever. the Captain still might hate me for this."

Suddenly, Aster grabbed the little mermaid's jaw as if he were about to break it. "Don't _ with me girl. I will rip out every single on of your insides out trough your mouth in alphabetical order if you do that a again."
He was not happy about being teased about his fear. It was a perfectly logical fear. Usually people didn't enjoy being food.

Seraphina


Seraphina listened to aster weakly. She felt tired and wanted to go to sleep soon but she couldnt let her guard down. Seraphina sighed and shrugged as he said one of the captives locked them down here. 

Seraphina suddenly let out a struggled yelp that sounded hoarse and weak when aster grabbed her jaw tightly and squeezed it hard in his grip. She struggled in his grip and tried to move her head but it was more like she was trying to turn her head to the sides. She looked up at him sadly and felt scared now. She hadnt the slightest intentions of mocking him or offending him. Seraphina had her hands on his trying to pull it away from around her neck. "please stop... youre hurting me." she whispered scared. "i didnt mean to offend you, i meant if sharks appeared id protect...you. Im sorry aster!" she blinked a few times and closed her eyes frightened.

Aster released her jaw when the girl started to cry out. He wasn't used to people trying to be genuinely nice to him anymore. "And why would you want to do that?" He asked, actually curious. He hadn't done anything to make the girl remotely like him, much less want to protect him. So why would she risk her neck (if the chance came) for his?

He glanced at the girl's jaw. He hadn't held it tight enough to bruise, it'd just be slightly painful for a bit.

Seraphina


Seraphina held her arms against her chest and rested her head weakly on the floor again. She felt even more tired after aster tried to threaten her. Seraphina looked up at aster a bit scared now as she bit her lip nervously. He asked her why she'd do that for him and to be honest she didnt know why. 

Seraphina said timidly, "i dont know...you seem, different...then other pirates...im not sure...but i do know, you...got the hook out of me and stitched it up...and you tried to give me clothes...thank you aster...I figure I owe you something..." she sighed and closed her eyes. "im sorry just...please don't hurt me...you can blame the captive escaping on me. Say i broke out of my case and let her go but got stabbed....i dont care. " she felt sleepy now and felt her head nod off to the side.

Aster sighed. "I wont hurt you. Just... Don't do that again. And, you... You don't owe me anything. You seem to forget you're a prisoner on this ship. I am no different than any other pirate on this ship. I have the same damn algae problem and a short temper."

Aster sighed. "I'm not going to blame you. Now, get some sleep. Just don't shrivel up and die on me okay?"

Seraphina


Seraphina sighed deeply and listened to aster. She shrugged and shook her head, "i could help reduce the amount of algae you got if you asked nicely though...the offer is still open whenever youd like." she turned her head to the side and felt sleep creeping up on her.

"Shrivel up and die?' hmm." she quoted him as she weakly poked his knee. "thats offense since i have the lower body of a fish...im not all fish..." she opened her eyes and lifted up the trenchcoat smirking tiredly. "obviously." she wrapped it back over her body and covered herself back up. She started to drift off but before she fell asleep she whispered, "you can blame it on me...i have nothing to loose." then she fell asleep.

Aster saw the girl fall asleep. He rolled his eyes but felt a small smirk grace his lips.

He got up and walked back to his office. Grabbing a bucket of water and a rag before scrubbing off all the algae he could find in every place he felt or saw. He was seriously hoping the Captain would unlatch the door. Or maybe he'd catch the damn girl and run her through.

Maybe he could call for the Cabin Boy or boy/girl somehow... Well not right now. Since he was only in his shorts.

Al and Foster hurried inside they were arguing and foster slapped her. The captain and crew saw this and their eyes widened in shock. Al in her tiny short frame stood up on her tiptoes and glared Foster in the eyes, everyone was inside the small cramped cabin dripping the salty ocean water. She slapped him hard and left a print on his handsome face. He balled his fists and lunged at the girl knocking her down and started hitting her she tried to fight back but he was to big. She needed help.

Re: Pirates of the Curse

Is it bad I had a dream about pirates? :3

Re: Pirates of the Curse

I hope you guys don't mind, I'm making a character for the Female Captive slot. In all of the active roleplays I'm doing, I seem to be playing boys, and I am not a guy, so I need a little break, plus we need to fill the roles anyway. Feel free to snag another role if you want it. We have tons to fill, so it's all good. :)

Re: Pirates of the Curse

Working on my male character for the Waterbird ^ ^.

Re: Pirates of the Curse

Alright! Got my first post up! For the characters that aren't filled, they'll just be NPC's unless someone submits a character.

On that note, I've allowed some female sailors/pirates, but since the characters are really supposed to be male and I don't want them all girls, I ask if you make a second that it is a guy. :) I'd allow more girls, but the time period wouldn't be having a ton of girl sailors and usually in roleplays like this everyone wants to have a female character and I want to keep genders more balanced.

Re: Pirates of the Curse

Alright finished up my character. Hopefully she is good ^ ^, I am really tempted to make another one for the sailors. I just thought of all the fantastic ideas I could have for the fiancé.

Re: Pirates of the Curse

Guys, I wanted to give you an idea of where we are starting-

On the Pirate ship, the captives are about to be hanged, but will tell Cap. Curry about the island of gold. Then, the rest is up to wherever we want. The Waterbird, you'll just be carrying your normal duties of trying to hunt down The Seashell.

Re: Pirates of the Curse

I will probably make the first post tomorrow. It'll be Captain Curry's POV, so... yeah. :) Make sure your posts are 300 word long at least, please. ;D

Re: Pirates of the Curse

Ok she's up I hope she's ok. I can't wait to start now! I know this is going to be a good roleplay!

Re: Pirates of the Curse

By the way guys, do you think you could put a avatar image on your characters? I love you're characters so far, they're all great and pretty well written, but the little blank image always drives me nuts. :)

Re: Pirates of the Curse

@Iezobel

I'm fine with her pretending to be a man. Remember, she will be cursed if she's a Pirate, so don't forget the fungi and red eyes. :)

About the sorcerer thing, maybe hold off on that? Maybe later in the roleplay... I don't know. I'll have to think about it, ;)

Re: Pirates of the Curse

I was wondering could I reserve a sailor on the Seashell only could she just be pretending to be a man so she could get on the ship. If not could I reserve Female captive.
Thanx! ;)

<Edit~
Could my character be a sorcerer that doesn't know she is one.

Re: Pirates of the Curse

@Arabella

Yeah, that would be a cool twist. Sounds good. :)

Re: Pirates of the Curse

Hi comic! I literally was about to make a pirate rp lol then i saw this one xD but whatever i was wondering if i could reserve a female captive but i wanted to make a twist. Could my character be a mermaid? I think that if there was like a mermaid or something you could find a way to put that in te ot or somethig then itd be like a cool aspect or whatever. If not then ill still like to reserve the female captive slot please! :D

Re: Pirates of the Curse

Yep! I'll reserve that for you right away.

By the way, forgot to mention, reservations last 48 hours. After that, the spot is up for grabs.

Re: Pirates of the Curse

May I reserve a sailor position for the Seashell?. I should have a bio up by either tonight or tomorrow ^ ^
