Male Orc Ranger (Freebooter) 1 Rogue (Pirate) 2

When Elwood is done with his shopping I will set up my list, I have a good idea what it will contain, so it is really a matter of what is removed from it. :)

I like Urdu, because being a native english speaker, it looks more primitive than a language with roman letters. Plus it's all pointy. Devangari might be good too, but it's too complex looking I think.

I used to live in Niedersachsen and we would get Danish radio and stuff sometimes. It's weird because it sounds so similar to German but not at all. I hear it and feel like I should understand, but totally can't :(

It's mutually intelligible with Swedish and Norwegian right? What about Icelandic?

Male Orc Ranger (Freebooter) 1 Rogue (Pirate) 2

Depending on which Norwegian language (there are two) then it is totally understandable. Swedish... it SHOULD be reality is that unless you are used to Swedish as a Dane you have a really hard time understanding it, though some people are better then others. OK on Icelandic there is a word here and there, but it is about on the same rate as an English speaker understand Swedish or Danish... sure there is a loan word here and there but the whole meaning? Not a chance.

I see. Interesting.


For when we speak Aquan, how does everyone feel about using Armenian?


I am speaking a different language.

Ես հանդես գալով տարբեր լեզուներով.

I think it looks the part.

Male Human Oracle of Maitre Mer 3

Personally I figured that a polynessian language would be good for Aquan, although they had no writen form so use the roman alphabet.

That's really cool looking. Never seen Armenian script before.

Male Orc Ranger (Freebooter) 1 Rogue (Pirate) 2

Nice! another option for exotic looking scripts would be Kannada

"A map you say? Well, there ain't much to show my friend. We're at the edge of the known world here on the coast. We've got Last Point out at about a week's sail and beyond that it's uncharted waters."

ok. im confused. is the discussion area considered "in character" or out?

Male Orc Ranger (Freebooter) 1 Rogue (Pirate) 2

Just in case, you can pretty much assume I will be doing the first part every day, so you can from now on just act as if I come by asking ;) I doubt anyone wants me to C/P those phrases everyday ;)

GJurn "SALTY" Swurn wrote:

Out of character, I just like answering questions in character if the NPC would. Sorry to confuse you.

M Human 1st level wilder

ok. i was just looking for a point of reference from where the ship was leaving and what not.

GJurn "SALTY" Swurn wrote:

In all honesty, where we came from is just flavor. Where we are going... now that's a different matter.

M Human 1st level wilder

hey everyone, i just want to put it out there so there is no misunderstandings.

Im not trying to antagonize graskkator in a mean spirited manner.

Im playing GJurn as an that old guy who has already peaked in his career and should be out the door, but doesnt realize that he should be sitting this out and leaving the responsibilities of being a captain to a younger guy.

I hope that makes sense :)


I know. Just having fun myself.

DM Matt!? Egats, I didn't know this was your game!

Didn't you check my alias? I believe I even mentioned I had multiple games running.

I mean, I checked everyone's alias when they applied in the first place.

I apologize for the surprise!

By the way, beautiful method of creaming the crew's pants.

Nah, I never check aliases. I always get surprised at some point during games by finding out I've already been playing with someone I 'know'. Not that it's a bad thing, I'm happy you're the DM ^_^

Well, his shtick is that he's all cold and restrained normally, but when he drinks the mutagen he gets all emotional. The Str version obviously makes him into a giant devilish a*shole. Haven't thought about the others too much yet. It was fun to write though.

I thought it was great, perfect way to motivate Elwood to go see the Doc.

Male Orc Ranger (Freebooter) 1 Rogue (Pirate) 2

if no one else posts about the whole swurn/graskkator run in then I will be making a post tomorrow about it. I will sadly be out most of today so I probably will not post today at all.

M Human 1st level wilder

im still actively watching, since apparently im in the hull...LOL

under arrest at the least since you never objected :)

Just checking in. Don't have anything to add in character right now.

Male Human Oracle of Maitre Mer 3

Just made a couple of observations.

Firstly I seem to have made a character with little motivations or goals other than being nice. Leading to little conflict and thus not adding to the story greatly. Any advice on fixing this is welcome but I'll try to address it myself.

Secondly Lucille Bluth is not getting much airtime, largely because she isn't near anyone else and isn't a very social person. That said I think she would make a great barman or priest like character to talk to about what is frustrating Delmar and confess sins to in here confessional in the sky. Lucille if you have a problem with this let me know.

Male Orc Ranger (Freebooter) 1 Rogue (Pirate) 2

For the record she was at this event despite her duties, everyone was, but true. I think you just found yourself though in a new tar pit caught between the captain and the crew ;) after all you just became "number one".

But I agree this is an excellent time for Lucille to become more center stage... more on that late *snickers evilly and cast a glance at his evil master plan*.

Hmm...the evil snicker makes me want to stay on the sidelines...

I apologize for the lack of posting. I've been busy, but also have very little to contribute. That shall change as needed. Feel free to rope me in as you see fit, though.

Delmar, be prepared that if you do confess, Lucille isn't the most tactful. You may not like what you hear. :)

Male Human Oracle of Maitre Mer 3

Sorry I have been a little slow on posting. Work is hectic this week and next. After that everything is much more relaxed for a bit so I should be better.

It sucks that Lucille had to drop. Not sure why, but maybe we could speed things up a bit. Or at least have a non roleplaying encounter? We've been playing for about a month and a half and haven't done much besides argue amongst ourselves and describe day-to-day actions on the ship. That's fine for a while but it's starting to feel stale.

I'm not going anywhere, but I'd like to have a sort of fast forward button for days where the only event is an albatross or a shoal of fish. I also agree with Grunk that an NPC lookout, with a high perception score would move things along more quickly.

I guess my request is, give us an island to explore, a dragon that doesn't stay in the clouds or a ship fast enough to catch us. I guess we're really just now getting to the meat of the game (beyond the mistwall thingy), but I feel like I've been watching a really long first episode to a TV series.

I love your DMing Matt, hopefully this request is not insulting. It's not intended to be, I just want some of that awesome Seekers action over in this thread too. Please don't smite me :P

Male Human Fighter 2 / Gunslinger 1

I agree with what Rodrigo had to say, I think he hit the nail on the head.

Male Orc Ranger (Freebooter) 1 Rogue (Pirate) 2

Grunk? hehe


I must say I been enjoying some parts of it a lot... I always wanted to play out a captain's mast and the fact I got a chance trilled me no end (sorry if the rest found it boring), which I might have dragged out a bit too much....

Anyway It has taken quite awhile, to get to where we are, but I think on some level we have to accept that that is the reality of PbP.

My only advice is that like in a movie one could limit things to highlight the important events that is where something of importance happen but not leave much time focused on the day to day routines unless it serves a purpose for the overall story. Though mostly I have enjoyed it (though rolls done by the players without the request of the Gm have yielded universally no response example my intimidate or me and mathurin's attempt to gauge the weather or even grumpy's attempt at sailor checks early on). One thing in this game I am a little in doubt about is how to work the NPCs the first example we had of one of us trying to interact with NPCs is grumpy's going around checking and helping out others which gave the response from you Matt that:

profession sailor check1d20+12

Be careful with how you write out your actions, don't assume NPC reactions. These are highly trained sailors aboard. Don't want to get them thinking you know better than they do. xD

which after that meant since then we had no response to anything from the NPCs from you Matt but also we can't make up a reaction because we don't know them. Would be nice to have them be a little more active in one way or the other... which is also why I had de Arcadia whipping grumpy because otherwise I wasn't sure it would get done. all in all this (to me) problem makes the ship a bit of a ghost ship at the moment if you get my drift.

Anyway overall I am having fun.

Oops! One of my PCs has the same avatar and his name is Grunk in the game I DM. Sorry Graskkator!

Male Orc Ranger (Freebooter) 1 Rogue (Pirate) 2

no worries I was merely mightily amused hehe, anyway it is a good avatar for a none rampaging orc.

No worries, guys. In fact, take a day or two to RP some fun character interactions in town. Last Point is a pirate shanty rife with plenty of opportunities. Feel free to improvise. If you need/want ideas, let me know.

As well, as soon as we reach the Uncharted Edge we'll be knee deep in everything from brackish swamps and ancient ruins to savage jungles and cursed shipwrecks. Much less on the ship itself.

I'm now capable of accessing the Advanced Race Guide thanks to our local gaming store, so you may use archetypes/options from this book. As well, I will most likely continue to use Skull & Shackles utilities as they are released, including Tempest Rising's new Storm subsystem.


I just love the advanced race guide. Lots of goodies to play with!

Male Orc Ranger (Freebooter) 1 Rogue (Pirate) 2

*sneaks in the dayrunner alternate trait (p. 138) then runs off laughing manically*

I'd permit a simple change like that if someone wants to make such a switch. Please post the change for me to check and then I can give you the ok.

I think i am going to bow out of this adventure. I just took over another campaign as DM, and am looking to start my third campaign set within the wheel of time setting. With these three, i cannot spare any more time towards gjurn.

I'm sorry to hear that but I understand how overload gets. I myself am GMing 3 and playing in 1. Good luck mate.


So, is there anything else to do here? Been a while since anyone posted.
Lets get some fun things happening for everyone to participate in! :)

Has everyone posted everything?

In fact, let's have everyone post a "Aye Aye Captain" and then we're off.
