Do you want to pick up some lingo for Talk Like A Pirate Day? Whatever the reason, learning some pirate terms can be useful and fun. Read on, me hearties!

Glossary of Pirate Terms and Phrases
If you think that there are only a few pirate terms and phrases to learn, you are absolutely mistaken! We've provided a vocabulary list of 75 fascinating pirate sayings (although many more pirate idioms abound), and you will see that there is quite a bit more to talking like a pirate than running around saying "Aarrr!"

We have included the pirate phrases, as well as the modern English translation of that phrase.

Learn to say “hello” the pirate way!

ahoy - hello
Avast ye! - Stop and pay attention!

heave ho - instruction to put some strength into whatever one is doing
Savvy? - a question that means, “Do you understand?”
Shiver me timbers! - an expression used to show shock or disbelief
Sink me! - an exclamation of great surprise
yo ho ho - possibly from yo-heave-ho, a chant when doing strenuous work, but also can be used to call attention to the speaker

As you will be getting some new crew mates, any ideas for names is appreciatied.


Female Resources Channel 4/4 Human Cleric HP: 36/36; Nonlethal 0; AC:16/15/11 ; Fort: 6 Ref:2 will:8 ; Init +1 ; CMD:15 ; Perception +4;

Whenever I pitch something to GMs, here are things to keep in mind:
I am fine with 80% being discarded, and what is taken being heavily altered
You dont have to explain any decision ever.

Soren "Shiny" verassian Human warrior

A medium sized black haired chelish man.
Perfectly average stats.
Once a Chelish bastard of a low ranking noble house,

gm only:
he sought to find wealth and glory in the worldwound wars. He got captured by Nocticulan forces in the first encounter, and, being judged to be "meh" and "completely average in every way", was ransomed back. His father, once known as an adventurer, being deeply disappointed but willing to pay his very average ransom. Now seeks fame and glory in the shackles. Has a massive chip on his shoulder concerning Succubi, and a vivid imagination about who could plausibly be one
. Keeps his gear in top condition at all times, which is the source of his nickname.

sidequest idea:

His Paranoia is nearly correct about one person being a Succubus! But just nearly since she is something else!

Vladislav "Vlad" Vladislavovich Human Bloodrager

A tall, broad shouldered, muscular and blond Irriseni, Strong, charismatic, not very intelligent or wise.
Irriseni exile who claims to descent from one Rurik, the longest standing heroes fighting against Baba Yagas invasion of Irrisen. Is a big axe for hire, and has several smaller axes for every day tasks such as cutting meat in a kitchen.
Has a fairly sunny personality, "At least no part of my body is currently freezing off, and I can look into a mirror without an ice witch looking back out!". When asked about how he got all of these axes, he was on a ship that took a military supply transport full of axes. He would actually prefer swords normally but he got used to it.
Correctly pronouncing his full Name "Vladimir Vladislavovich Rurikid" gets a +2 to diplomacy checks involving him, but requires a successfull DC 15 linguistic check if you dont speak Irriseni.

sidequest idea:

Unfortunately for Vlad, the Irriseni government set strict quotas for political enemies to be murdered by baba yagas agents, per year, and while far from a priority, he is visible and talks a lot. Fight of an assassination attempt and gain his loyalty!

Askold "Beerfiend" Magnusson. Human Skald

A Kellid exile of Sarkoris, is seeking to be able to taste and brew every single type of booze in the multiverse. Cayden follower, is named Beerfiend because of his innate ability to disappear the contents of Beerbarrels. Charismatic, intelligent, not dextrous or wise, above average str and con.

sidequest idea:

Find the mythic omni booze! Booze so great that whoever you give it to will perform one mighty task.
His own plan is to give it to Nocticula, so she murders Baphomet and Deskari, and thus frees his homeland. This may or may not work, since she may or may not be planning to do that anyway, and getting the omnibooze for free is nice.

Bellamy crew they lost their captain.

"Big Knife" Sarquiss ("Sarkies") is a blue-haired bespectacled man who is Bellamy's first mate[ch. 223].

Eddy is the Bellamy Pirates' navigator. He is voiced by Hiroshi Kamiya in the original Japanese version. In the Funimation dub, he is voiced by Andy Baldwin in episodes 149 and 150 and by Zach Bolton in Episode 207.
Muret is the Bellamy Pirates' doctor.

Hewitt is the Bellamy Pirates' cook.

Senti "Sekal" Kalu

Senti is a human male garundi, off the coast of Osirion. A hard worker, if a little dense. He does not shy away from difficult decisions. He has always had a dim view of pragmatism, believing that tough choices are for tough people. With that in mind, he likes to go for the straightforward solution, which can cause more problems to arise if the situation is delicate.

Itza "Chicken" Olara

Itza is a male halfling, originally hailing from Cheliax. Itza was never a brave one, and he jumped at the opportunity to escape the slave cages. During the escape, Itza was forced to kill one of his pursuers. He ended up in the Shackles as a shipwright's helper. Recently, he was told that someone from his past caught wind of his location, and decided to change the scene.

Isebran "White-Eye" Firegut

Born in the Mana Wastes, this male dwarf had at some point in his life decided that living in a cave is not for him. He picked up a backpack and walked into the desert. Eventually, the desert turned into mountains, and that into lush jungles. Isebran continued moving west, until he found himself standing knee-deep in an ocean with a great storm raging in the distance. Walking along the shore, he found a town and, despite the warnings, chartered a boat west into the Shackles. Here, he found work as an alchemist and a powder monkey.

I would be happy with everyone's suggestions


Female Resources Channel 4/4 Human Cleric HP: 36/36; Nonlethal 0; AC:16/15/11 ; Fort: 6 Ref:2 will:8 ; Init +1 ; CMD:15 ; Perception +4;

Mikaela "Blinged Hussar" Wolodjeovski
Once a cavallerist in Restov, she got cursed by a Fae to have horses freak out whenver she is close. Decided to switch tacks to being a pirate, since her drawback of repelling horses matters much less here.
While she will likely never wear the wings of Rostlands heavy hussar cavalry, she can substitute for bling what she lacks wingwise.
Has short cropped hair and is a capable duelist, although not fully swordlord trained. Refers to Aaron "Pepe Pew pew" as "designated Succubus bait".

Aaron "Pepe Pew Pew" de St. Cyr
Proud Scion of Galt, although his family was on the losing side of one of Galts many power struggles, resulting in exile. His grandfather was an admiral of that nation during the revolutionary war, before it got landlocked due to chelish and taldane counter attacks.
Plays up the daring musketeer swashbuckler trope for laughs, secretly has a crush of Mikaela.

Vadim "Haircut" Zinchenko
A former Issian river pirate. Sought to move into the big leagues by moving into the open sea, after the new Issian government clamped down on piracy and essentially inducting the river pirates into its navy.
Is incredibly attached to his cossack haircut, and would take debuffs if it is not prim, proper and in good condition. Wields a mean sabre.

Vikla does not have kn. planes, but picked up some amusingly wrong information about demons while on an Abyssally influenced ship. As such she will frequently be convinced that tactics that do nothing, or even are outright bad, are very cunning against some types of demons or devils.

reverse metagaming or operation bad idea :

1: Succubus
Succubi are annoying winged ladies that like to fly around you, stay out of melee range and hit you with flaming arrows or unholy blights! Valiantly grapple them to stop such shenanigians!

2: Marilith
Mariliths are expert bards because they can play many instruments at the same time! Hit them with silence spells!

3: Schir
They gnaw their halberds because its good eatz! But it turns into bad eatz as the Schir is slain. RUDE.

4: Dretch
Dretch rear end, is processed correctly, can be used as a base for pretty reasonable if overly spicey booze!

5: Incubus:
They are really weak against spells ordering them to get rid of any armor they are wearing!

6: Abrikandidu
They are very weak to roses!

7: Accuser devil
They fear spiders so summon some!

8: Bearded devils
Can be terrorized by displaying a barbers tools, ideally in silver!

Devils in general:
Asking them if they have a "loicense" for their behaviour sometimes gets funny results

9: Warmonger devils
Are obligated to follow through with any knock-knock joke.

I hate to be that kind of player…but tbh I haven’t really been feeling it with this campaign. Not that I think the campaign is bad or anything, I’m just not really vibing. I hate to throw this suddenly, but I think I’m gonna have to step down from this campaign.

Though, if you must, I will miss you.

I have a couple of magic items that I want to throw in but the party is not quite ready for, give it a few more encounters.


Male Human Rogue6/Clr1 Current Map

We have had a few people with some ideas. Any comments are appreciated.


Female Resources Channel 4/4 Human Cleric HP: 36/36; Nonlethal 0; AC:16/15/11 ; Fort: 6 Ref:2 will:8 ; Init +1 ; CMD:15 ; Perception +4;

In terms of overall comments:

--Someone who is str based would be nice.

--There is the common effect that a newly entered character who has wealth per level will be stronger then existing characters, mostly because his wealth is a) actually at his level and b) spend in a more optimal way. Most of Viklas wealth is the boarding pike, an item she never would have bought.
This is definitly in full force here. As we are kind of poor.

--I prefer to have a variety of perhaps half charged wands or scrolls on a character if I am jumping in mid campaign, essentially, if you fill up your wealth by level with partly party utility it lessens the disparity.

small but quite useful magical items that arent the big 6 Vikla edition:

1: For a 2.5K gp price, both stagger proof boots and eyes of the eagle offer great utility.

2: A quick runners shirt can save lifes too.

3: We dont currently have spontaneous spellcasters, but Mnemonic vestments can turn a spontaenous spellcaster into someone with a fair bit of flexibility, good fun can be had with a skald or bard or even a bloodrager that kind of gets a once per day spellbook. And then goes on an "Aktually" crusade to show the wizards who is more flexible.

4: I like designing small items, like f.e. a mechanical parrot that allows the owner to cast alter voice and ventriloquism once per day, and who automatically translates any trashtalk you do into the language of whoever you are trashtalking.

Yeah I am being very restrictive on what items people are bringing in. Definitely NOT WBL, 1000 GP is closer to what the average party member has. I know they have more, but you are right, not exactly what they would have taken.
So far have only seen two statted characters. Will keep looking.

orc investigator, Ranger (Tidal Hunter) or keep looking for a another female player?

In terms of overall comments:

--Someone who is str based would be nice.

--There is the common effect that a newly entered character who has wealth per level will be stronger then existing characters, mostly because his wealth is a) actually at his level and b) spend in a more optimal way. Most of Viklas wealth is the boarding pike, an item she never would have bought.
This is definitly in full force here. As we are kind of poor.

--I prefer to have a variety of perhaps half charged wands or scrolls on a character if I am jumping in mid campaign, essentially, if you fill up your wealth by level with partly party utility it lessens the disparity.

** spoiler omitted **

You have Emma, and Arcanist is at least part spontaneous

Yes, the party is extremely poor if you don't count the value of the ship. But that the motivator to turn to piracy. You capture 2 to 3 ships and money is a lot less of an issue. Right now feeding the crew is even an issue - 14 GP per day.


Female Sea Elf Blood Arcanist Savant 4; AC 15 (18 w/mage armor), HP 27, Init + 3; Fort +2, Ref +4, Will +4; Atk melee +5, ranged +5. concentration +11, Skills Acro +4, Climb +1 (+9), Perc + 3, Prof (sailor) +12, SoH +4, Sp.craft +11 (+13), Swim +17

Shiver me timbers, that's a lot more than me has.

We could sell Lario! ;)

Damn, good thing we got fridges on the ship, so the supplies won't spoil?

As for the new PC:
-we have arcane and divine casters, so that is covered, kind of

-we have 4 meatbags out of 5 - this should probably be something to think about

-some extra healing capability would be nice, to take some burden off of Vikla's shoulders. This could be another divine caster, or someone that can procure some alchemical healing pots/doodads

But I'm sure we can make anything work. The above are just my thoughts on the matter. If someone wants to bring a paladin to a pirate campaign, game on. It would be interesting, for sure.

Salted pork and crackers will set back a long time. To say nothing of pickled fruits and vegetables. Some nice jams and jellies. Besides, no one says you have to take it all at once. You can figure to be back here fairly regular to squib new acquisitions.

While I think the ranger might be a better fit, the orc investigator does have formulas for clw and Bulls strength.
