The Dread Pirate's Saga

Well, I told you all I had an RP in mind and now that my school semester is coming to an end I felt like putting it up to see what kind of responce I get.

THE STORY:
-----------
I am Captin Ivan Wagner but most refer to me as the Dread Pirate.  For years I have sailed the seven seas and become known as the most fearsome pirate to date.  More recently I have heard of what was considered to be an unatainable treasure somwhere south.  I believe the land has been dubbed Eagle Eye Island.  Though I am unsure of its truth I feel compelled to investigate.  Currently I am short on sailers willing enough to venture with me on this expidition.  I have little choice but to hire on new help.  Riches beyond yon wildest belief are in store for all those willin' to sail the waters with the Dread Pirate.  Ifin any one of you land lovers is interested to dare board the Dark Flame than come.  Remember there's other crews out there that think they stand a chance of gettin thar before I...well, I intend to prove em wrong.  

THE PLAYERS:
-------------

The Dark Flame Crew-
(The most feared Ship on this side of the world.  The Dark Flame has been the topic of most stories including the one of its name.  It is said that when the Flame was first bulit it was struck by lightning from a storm.  Somhow it was able to withstand the burning and sustained little damage.  When the building crew boarded they found a small ember that had never went out.  To this day they say it is still lit and lies within the Captin's chambers.)

Captin Wagner

The Revenge Crew-
(The Revenge crew are what we call loners.  They are the outcasts of other crews and being so tend to be rather irritated.  Their ship, The Revenge, is fortified with whatever scraps they could find, and one thing that has kept them around thus far.  A state of the art cannon called the impaler mounted at the front end of the ship.  None of the crew has ever held a leadership position so no captin is currently in charge.)


The Black Skull Crew-
(This crew is rather new to what we call the pirates community.  As of now they have no man willing to take the captins role so all matters are settled via vote.  They are currently looking for somone with enough guts to take charge of their ship the Black Skull.)

The Intercepter
(Sworn enemies of all pirates, the intercepter crew is sailed by hired mercenaries of the Crown.  Their one mission is to stop all piracy and capture us hearty folk.
As of recently they have no captin.  Their former captin, Kurtis Longman was slain by yours truly.)

HOW TO JOIN:
-------------

Fill in the application as follows

Name:

Physical Appearance:

Special Abilities:

Crew You Wish To Join:

Position Applying for (Captin, first mate, crew member):

Four Items You Have With You:

Why You Feel You Are Suited To Join This Crew:

Please post your apps in the OOC.
And that's it.  Have fun.

Three men, soaking wet, enter the tavern. From the looks of them, they appear to be swashbucklers, not very skilled ones, but you are in desperate need of help. You aren’t quick to try to recruit them, as you are not assured of their business. They immediately approach and you are glad that you did not try to recruit them, as it would have given away your desperation for crewmembers. The first one walks up to you and gives a business like greeting.

Man: “Hello. Name’s Cook, Eric Cook. I’ve heard you are in need of new recruits.”

Ivan: “You mean WERE. I don’t need any new recruits.”

Cook: “What do you mean? Are you saying you are not in need of good services?”

Ivan: “Well I just hired a lot of men. Good ones too. Unless you think you are better than they are.”

Cook: “Better? HA! What do you think we are a bunch of inexperienced land rogues? See this man her next to me.”

Ivan: “You mean that scrawny guy right there?”

A few darts fly at you pinning your clothes to your seat. They seem to have come out of nowhere.

Cook: “One piece of advice… Don’t call him scrawny. His name is Swifty. This guy is the fastest dart thrower you’ll ever see, best aim too. Gets enemies right in the throat. On top of that he the hardest guy to hit you’ll ever meet. He doesn’t speak. He’s dumb. He likes to just sit alone, mind his own business, and be the lookout. That’s another thing. He’s the best lookout you’ll ever meet. I guarantee you’ll have at least a fifteen-minute edge on your opponent with this guy as lookout. He can see anything, eyes like a hawk. If you’re worried about having a lookout that can’t talk, he has several whistles around his neck and he uses all of them to communicate. You’ll get used to it.”

Cook: “To my right here is Slash. Best sword fighter I’ve ever seen. He could win in a 4 on 1 drunk out of his mind. I’m serious too. I remember this one time we got ambushed and we had been drinking. Killed everyone one of the suckers before I could get stand up. That’s the problem though. It’s not often that he isn’t drunk.”

Ivan: “Who are you talking about?”

Eric looks behind him and sees a man up at the bar ordering a drink already.

Cook: “That man up there. See already getting drunk. And he’d been sober for a day. That’s a long time for him.”

Cook: “Now about me. First of all, I know more people than you’ll probably ever know in your lifetime. As long as I’m part of your crew, we can get pretty much anything we want, within reason, in just about any town. Did I mention I make weapons? Guns, swords, anything you want really. All the equipment we are carrying, I made myself. I’ve even invented some new weapons of my own. I’d also like to say that I’m proficient with every weapon you can possibly think of. You could give me anything and I’d use it effectively as a weapon.”

Cook: He'll be dead drunk and couldn't sail to the end of the dock!

Ivan: I must object to that, he's quite an accomplished sialor and he be standing right behind ye.

Jack: Is there a problem here cap'n?

Ivan: Nay, I just be gettin some more sailors for the ship.

Jack: A'righty then.  They look pretty seaworthy cap'n. Perhaps they'd be good for somethin eh? But I be a leavin the decision makin to ye. It ain't my place to be makin any suggestions...

*Captin's Log:  Already I've been getting a rush of folk who think themselves to be sea worthy.  Once again I shall be the greatest Pirate in the Seven Seas.  I've already recieved word of three other crews preparing for sail as well, including my old nemises' the Intercepter.  Whether they're out to get me or the treasure is of little matter...it's who they find to replace their late Captin that concerns me.  Already I've found my recruits have a knack for drinking.  All's well in...however that line goes.  My newest recruit, Mr. Daniels, seems to like the scum that walk in on me drinkin time today.  Says they look sea worthy.  We'll see about that.  I've always been rather stern on who boards my ship.  Just because I'm short on men gives me no reason to let up.  I didn't become most feared for my kindness.  End Log.*

Jack:  What chu writen thar cap'n?

Ivan:  My log.  Most captins keep em.  

Jack:  That don't look like no log Cap'n.  Looks like one of dem books.

Ivan:  It is a book you nimrod.  A log is another word for journal.

Jack:  Oh.  Well, the three from the tavern are here.

Ivan:  WHAT?  ON MY SHIP?

Jack:  yessir.  They be.

Ivan:  Hmmmmmm...suppose it shows gumption.  We'll have to see about them.  Go get Mr. Dean.  It's training time for you land lovers.

*Checking my berth in the medical bay I stowed my harp safely in one of the cabinets. T'wouldn't do to get it knocked about like a bouncing ball. Cap'n was off recruiting more crew members, and I was waiting to see what scum he would dredge up out of the shackville we'd docked in. It would be up to me to examine 'em and make sure they didn't have no diseases, or at least none that were catchin' like. I'd just belted my short sword on when I heard Jack come down the stairs*

'Capt'n wants ye Mr. Dean. Got a few fresh bodies for ye to look at', he said.

'I'm comin' Jack. Do us a wee favour and find us a jar o' whisky a'fore ye gets back to the cap'n. Good whisky mind, and get yer'self a flask o' yer own poison on me'.

'Cheers doc' said Jack beaming at me. It always paid to keep a new crew sweet with ye on these ventures. All too often I've seen or heard of mutinies on 'free-lance' ships, and it pays to remind the men that ye're on their side.
But yer really on yer own side.
Not that I think that'll happen to Ivan. Me and him go back a bits. First met him when I was just a wee lad, fresh outta hedge school and starry-eyed 'bout goin' to be a doctor.
Me ma was savin' all her money to send me to the doctor school, the butcher's yard she used to call it as a joke. She was a prostitute, and Ivan used to look out for her.
I think they had a wee thing goin' once, a'fore I was born. But then me mammy had me and all that stopped for some reason neither o' them ever told me.
Anyways, after me mam died I didn't wanna stay in Belfast, so Ivan took me on as ship's doctor.
Good thing too, cos I'd been playing around on the side with the baker's daughter Katie, a sweet lass, nice and plump in all the right places. But the baker didn't appreciate me 'educatin' his daughter in the ways of woman-hood. So it was luck when Ivan rolled into port.

Enough reminiscing, the cap'n was waiting for me.
'What can I do fer ye Cap'n?'

'Got a couple of crew I want you to look at. The usual, make sure we'll not be comin' down with the flux or nothin' two days outta port'.

'Aye cap'n' I said, looking at the three characters standing looking at me.

'Right lads. First things first. Off with yer shirts 'till I have a wee listen to yer hearts'....

A man walks into the Tavern, his clothes seem dry which is odd in these wet conditions. He seems to be the type who like to keep to themselves. He walks over to the bar and orders an ale and a cocktail. He gives Ivan a thourough looking over, then returns to his drinks. After finishing his drinks he walks over to Ivan.

Man: Are you the captain around here?

Vadskye was meandering about the country looking for a place to sleep each night.  It was a hard life, but he didn't have any skills for a decent job.  At least he didn't get drunk every night, or whatever money he got would be gone.  As it was, he used his time on the road to practice with his sword he had spent his hard earned money on.  That sword was a katana, a Japanese style that was curved slightly, but not nearly as much as a scimitar.  It took years, but finally he had reached the level of skill that he was unbeatable.  No one messed with this vagabond.  One day as a  walked into another town, he heard rumors of pirate ships hiring people.  It was time to give his sword arm a test.  Glancing at the different ships, he decided to join the Black Skull.  Buncha wimps who wouldn't be captain!  He'd show them...  When he got to the ship, it was all decked out in standard pirate regalia.  He hollered into the bowels of the ship, "Hey!  I'm applying to be captain!  What should I do now?"

Ship?: "Come aboard!  Belowdecks!"

Vadskye grumbled.  He didn't like walking into an unknown situation on enemy territory.  He turned his blade so as not to kill one of his potential employers if he struck by reflex.  Drawing his sword, he descended below the surface and found a bunch of men all sitting around a table.  Of course, they decide what to do democratically.

Man: "Why should we hire you?"

Vadskye: "Well, for one thing, the rest of you are too wimpy to assume command.  For another, there is no one, and I mean no one, that is better than me with a sword.  I spent years with nothing but this as a companion, and I could kill any of you in a split second.  Yes, I mean right now.  Any questions?"

One of those men was Force Aken. Looking meancing with his beard. He glances over to the newcomer.


Force: So you think your up for the job of captian because you can swordfight?? Ha.

He stands up and walks over to the wall. He stands close to it. He raises his head up sharply, creating a screeching sound. When he moves the wall has a 3 inch gash in it.


Force: To become captian buddy, you must go through me. No one will take that spot from me.

Force talks as though he is an old man. He is inside, as he has been on pirate ships since the age of 7


Force: Lad, i have no problem with you. But someone comes and trys to steal my position????? Then that causes a bit of a problem. And no, i do not have a first mate, as the last one was killed rather gorily At this, he rubs the tip end of his beard. For mutiny

Erion: So, when do we leave.

Force: Whenever my damn recruiter finishes gathering men. We wont be back for a long time, so i hope you are ready to be gone from land for quite a bit.

Bartender:  Uh, Mr. Dread Pirate sir?  Just wondering if you planned on paying this tab here.  I do..don't believe I've seen y...you on land this long before.

Isildur watches as Wagner pulls out his sword and circles the men. Two against one, thats no fair fight. Isildur pulls out his sword and jumps by Wagners side.

Isildur: Thought you could use some help.

Isildur and Wagner make quick work of them men. They only give them some small cuts and rip their clothes.

Wagner: Ahhh lad! Why didn't you let me kill them?
Isildur: This way, they will go back to their Lord and tell him how fearsome you are. Now back to before. Are you the Captain of the Dark Flame?

A screech of anger comes from outside.

Dean: “Sounds like Captain Wagner. Wait here!”

A shot is fired. The trio decides to ignore the advice from the doctor and head outside to see what happened. As they head outside they find the Captain reloading his gun.

Wagner: “Ready to see a dead bird.”

Dean: “Oh yeah. I love shooting birds that snow on you.”

Cook’s face turns to stone. He is horrified to see the Captain point his gun at a raven, his Raven, his Lucky.

Cook: “LUCKY!”

Swifty reacts throwing a couple darts in the way of Captain Wagner. Luckily the darts do their work and he misfires.

Wagner: “You dare attack me?”

The entire crew is after the newcomers. Swifty flings dozens of darts as he sprints off the boat. Slash does the same hacking with his sword clearing a path. They are unconcerned with killing anyone. They only wish to live. Luckily they are able to leap on to the docks before the crew can surround them, but this would not be the end of the struggle. Men sprint down the docks throwing daggers, shooting arrows. Swifty slows down from his sprint and runs backwards as he carefully aims his darts shins and thighs. It barely works. He manages to trip up a few of them causing a pile up on the narrow dock. The three do not escape unscathed by any means. They more or less limp their way to safety. They flee to the woods and set up a camp for the night.

Cook: “That was a bad idea. I apologize.”

Swifty simply nods his head.

Cook: “No it’s not okay, Swifty. We almost died.”

Slash: “We still got any boos?”

Cook: “No.”

Slash: “It’s in Swifty’s pack isn’t it?”

Cook: “No it’s not there.”

Slash: “Found it.”

Cook: “I was hoping I’d be able to at least have a conversation with someone tonight.”

Swifty pulls out his piece of slate and chalk.

Cook: “Oh yeah! I forgot about that. Wait when did I invent that again?”

Swifty writes on the slate.

Quote:

I dunno.


Cook: “That’s a lot of help. Ha ha ha! Oh well. I’m getting out that ointment for open wounds. Slash put that stuff on before the alcohol kicks in.”

Walking in, he looks at those in the tavern searching for known people. He sees to guys, but they're drunk so he ignores them. So he walks at the bar..

Bartender: Hey there, mate! Came to have a drink for the end of the week? It was a damn rainy saturday!

Senak:No.. I've finished my work for my master.I've ended my 8 years of service to him. Now I'm free to go where ever I want to. Now the final thing to do is to get myself a bloody shipowner!

Bartender: No really? Glad for you.. Well... I've heard some rumors that's a race going on involving the greatest ships around. Don't know if you saw, but The Revenge is in the bay... I've heard the owner needs some men.. Maybe you should check in...

Senak:If he is indeed in need of men, he will come to the tavern.. Until then I'll have my spare moment, enjoying my liberty... By the way... Who's in for the race?

Bartender:Heard something about the Dark Flame and The Black Skull, but I think they are only rumors.. The last time they set sail, was about the time you've entered your master's care...

Senak:Tnx, lad... See ya later...

Senak walks deeper into the tavern, leaving behind the dark smoke from the bad ciggarets made out of dirty leafs of god knows what...

*Ahhhhhh, fresh sea air.  Noting better than to wake up and take a good whif to greet the morning.  Today is the day the Dark Flame set's sail.  Rumors have been going around that some rival piracy ships intend on finding this treasure as well.  As it turns out, the Cracked Skull, or whatever they call themselves has a new captin.  It won't do them any good.  No one can best Captin Ivan Wagner...no one alive anyway.  Looking at me ship I can't help but wonder what's in store.  Oh I'm sure I'll get to that treasure but I doubt this adventure will be easy.  The Intercepter is rumored to have set sail once more.  Whether they found 'emselves a capn' is unknown.*

Dean:  Captin, we ready to board?

Ivan:  How long we been at this business Dean?

Dean:  I don't know captin.  I guess it's been about eight years for me, ten for you an Jack.

Ivan:  God be gracious.  You know I recieved word from my brother correct?

Dean:  Actually, no sir.  I thought your brother was dead.

Ivan:  Nah, just good at hiding.  He told me the group of men callin themselves the piracy community changed the code again.

Dean:  Code sir?

Ivan:  The Pirate's Code.  Just because were a bunch of lawless murdering thieves doesn't mean we have to be lawless.  You understand what I mean?

Dean:  I suppose.  

Ivan:  Back when Black Beard still reigned supreme captin, he set up a group of guidelines of what is done in certain situations.  He origionally intended them for his ship but soon other captins began adopting it.  Since than it's been the same for all pirate ships.  We all follow the code because it keeps order.  If we didn't have order than we'd all certainly be dead by now.  I'll wait til we board the ship and I'll post the new code.

Dean:  Sounds good sir.

Ivan: Go find Jack...better yet, go to the bar and get Jack.  That's his most likely place.  We'll be boarding soon.  I'll go locate that Isildur.  He seems like a good enough man.

*The two take off in seperate directions, Ivan heading for his ship and Dean looking for Jack.*

Ivan:  Now that I'm here I may as well post that blasted rule sheet.

ooc: Take note of the following rules.  Your Captin and Crew will be required to follow them.  bic...

Ivan:  There.  Done.  Those scallywags best not give me any trouble about these.  



Code of Conduct on a Pirate Ship:
The rules of each pirate captain are to be clearly stated to each member of the crew. When a rule is breached, the crew will often be found without pity or remorse in punishing a guilty crewmember. Although in cases of a particularly useful crewmember such as skillful fighters, exceptions may inevitably be made.
Article One:
Every man shall obey civil command; the captain shall have on full share and a half in all prizes. The Master, Carpenter, Boatswain, and Gunner shall have one share and quarter.

Article Two:
If any man shall offer to run away, or keep any secret from the Company, he shall be marooned with one bottle of powder, one bottle of Water, one small Arm, and shot.

Article Three:
If any Man shall steal any Thing in the Company, or game, to the value of a piece of Eight, he shall be Marooned or shot.

Article Four:
If at any Time we should meet at another Marrooner (that is, Pirate) that man shall sign his Articles without Consent of our Company, shall suffer such Punishment as the Captain and Company shall think fit.

Article Five:
That a man that shall strike another, whilst these Articles are in force, shall receive Moses’ Law (that is 40 Stripes lacking one) on the bare Back.

Article Six:
That Man that shall snap his Arms, or smoke Tobacco in the Hold, without cap to his Pipe, or carry a candle lighted without lanthorn, shall suffer the same Punishment as in the former Article.

Article Seven:
That Man that shall not keep his Arms clean, fit for an Engagement, or neglect his Business, shall be cut off from his Share, and suffer such other Punishment as the Captain and Company shall think fit.

Article eight:
If any man shall lose a joint in time of Engagement, shall have 400 Pieces of Eight: if a limb, 800.

Article Nine:
If at any time you meet with a prudent Woman, that Man that offers to meddle with her, without her Consent, shall suffer Death.

Article of the Captain:
Pirates shall have nothing to do with miserable treatment from any other crewmember nor captain alike.  A captain shall not attain command by iron fist but rather by skill, daring, and the ability to win prize and booty.  The ship (that meaning the crew) shall elect its captain trough a vote, the majority gaining the win.  If said elected captain fails to do so or falls in disfavor with the crew he shall put his life in the hands of the crew at which point the first mate is to take command.  The Captain shall than be subjected to either marooning or being thrown overboard.  Pressing details such as whether said crew shall engage an enemy is put to vote.  If the captain is to go against the vote than he shall be in violation of the Articles of Piracy and shall step down.  At this point a new leader shall be chosen by vote.

*Lazarus was slowly walking in the docks. It was strange how this son of a nobleman would like a brawly district like the docks this much. maybe it was because of his secure childhood? Maybe because he was searching for danger? anyway, while walking, he saw a ship that was in a bay. to be honest, it was awful. It was like every piece of scrap had been put on that ship. It was dirty, ugly and alone. Lazarus loved it. While he was standing there, amazed of the ship, he saw a young man that was coming towards him.*

Ben: ' Hey there! What are you doing?'

Lazarus: 'I'm just amazed of this ship. It is so...I love it.'

Ben: 'What?! You love this ship? I don't know, but you should search for a good doctor...'

Lazarus: 'Why would I need a doctor? Just so you know, I AM a doctor. not one of those lousy ones you'll find on the street. no, I have been studying medecine for the last three years, so I may say that I am the best doctor in the whole country'

Ben: 'So, you're a doctor, eh? Follow me. I'm planning to join the crew of this lousy ship, and I think that you should do that too'

Lazarus: 'Me? Well, if you say so..'

*Ben and Lazarus shakes hand and walks up on deck*

*Not long after Captin Wagner posted the new guidelines did those scallywags, Jack, Seamus, and Isiuldur board the ship.  Jack approaches the captin, eyeglass in hand.*

Jack:  Uh...Captin?

Ivan:  What is it?

Jack:  I think you should take a look at this.  There's a ship over yonder.

Ivan:  A ship eh?  Any crew on it?

Jack:  Take a look for yourself capn'.  I do believe I caught a glimpse of the jolly rodger itself.

Ivan:  Well what do you know.  Tis our old friends, the Revenge.

Seamus:  The who?

Ivan:  Exactly.  They are of no concern.  A bunch of spinless dogs who arn't fit to be real sailers.

Isiuldur:  You think they're going after the treasure as well?

Ivan:  Unlikely.  I doubt those brainless scars know much of anythin goin round.

Jack:  And if they do than we'll blow em out of the ocean right over to Chinee land.

* The whole crew gets a kick out of this joke.  It's been a long time joke that the people living over in China were no better than the butts of the silk worms they kept as pets.*

Ivan:  Look, before we ease back into the same ol same ol, Isiuldur here wants me to make im my first mate.  Any o' you Bildge suckers got a problem with that?
