Age of Sail


Age of Sail Meme

Welcome to the high seas and the Caribbean, in the Golden Age of Sail—and Piracy! Hoist anchors and set sail, because there’s adventure—and treasure—on the horizon.





Roles:
Piracy
A. Ship captain, of course, would you be found anywhere else? Command and the sea, those are your callings. Along with, of course, plunder.
B. Quartermaster, elected representative of the crew’s interests, and with power to veto the Captain’s decisions whenever the ship is not engaged in battle.
C. Crew. You’re in it for the plunder, and can’t be bothered with those pesky decisions. Unless, just maybe, you’ve got a mutiny in mind.
D. Cabin boy. Lowest in rank and newest on the ship, without any sailing experience of your own, but you’ll work your way up.
E. Stowaway. Whatever ship you’re on, whatever reason you have for running, you’d better hope you aren’t found.

The Law
F. Pirate-hunter. Maybe you’re working freelance, taking bounties where you find them, or maybe you are an officer of a royal navy, but either way, you’re tasked with bringing those lawless pirates to justice. There’s money in it, and glory for you.
G. Governor. You are the law, in your little corner of the Caribbean. Troops from the homeland, money and resources are yours, but anarchy is just one mistake away, and the pirates are always threatening your ships and those of your traders.
H. Honest sailor. You follow orders and don’t ask too many questions about them. Or the cargo.
I. Innocent Passenger. Honestly, you were just trying to get home, or to your new home in the new world. But now? Pirates.

Land-Lubbers
J. Innkeeper or Brothel Madam. When the pirates and sailors come into town, they’re going to need food, drink, and companionship. You’re here to provide that.
K. Shipwright. Ships and repairs, it’s all your business. You’re willing to serve any customer, and you don’t ask too many questions.

L. Wildcard! Who would your character be in the Golden Age of Sail?

Mix and match, pirates and pirate hunters, raid a ship or follow a map to treasure. Go get that horizon!

[.......well. The people on the ship believe that she's the spirit of the ship, crawling out at night in the shadows to guard it. She's preserved it in one way or the other more than once, after all, even if the details remain a bit fuzzy...

She's probably on a pirate ship, but could be on merchant one too. It might be the easiest to have a new person on the ship and have them try to figure out what's behind the superstitions of the sailors about this ship, but I'm up for anything :3]

Not that it was going to happen. The seas were relatively calm for the moment. It was a good moment to--]

Zexion | Kingdom Hearts | Cabin Boy

[personal profile] illicitresearch 2017-01-20 08:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[ He's probably not the most suitable Nobody, to be posing as a sailor. But this mission demands all hands on deck- or rather, as many Organization members spread among sailing crews in this world, to divide up the work of locating a certain object the Superior wants retrieved. Legend has spread quickly of a chest containing fathomless treasure at the edges of the map, coordinates were dropped from the mouth of a dying pirate in an alley behind a tavern, and a Nobody on each ambitious ship should ensure that everything goes according to plan.

Xigbar has certainly fallen in easily by now, with his eyepatch and black humor, Luxord always seems to fall into better fortune, Axel's wiles are well suited for piracy, Demyx for once is probably perfectly happy to be afloat, and Xaldin's likely making better progess with his power to command the winds. But Zexion's only here doing fieldwork on his own, really, because Lexaeus gets seasick easily.

He's a scrawny young fellow with ratty hair, with plenty of esoteric book knowledge jam-packed in his brain, but no real experience on the high seas, and a precocious awareness of the stars that makes ship navigators feel outwitted.

He's not the ideal recruit. But every good crew needs someone small and polite and unfraid of work to maintain all the drudgery aboard. 'Zex' presents himself as a lad with no expectations of compensation for the journey, just the chance for 'adventuring', signs on in plainclothes with nothing else on his person but an oversized journal, and that is that.

Two days at sea, and sailors are proving insufferable company, the smells are already putrid. He keeps the deck cleaned and the galley tidy, the lanterns filled with oil, the pitcher in the captain's quarters always topped off with fresh water, and he records everything interesting, in the time between.]

[personal profile] ravagingthebooty 2017-02-01 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
[The small boy made his way onto Motochika's ship, promises of a good work ethic and the wish to adventure. The lack of money he needs as well, seems promising to the pirate, who doesn't mind paying in the end. But if he doesn't need it, more for himself. And there's word of a rather large payload floating around that he's more than interested in learning about. And it seems that Zex knows something about it.

However, there's other things to do first. Indeed, Motochika has made it clear that the next goal is a full on treasure hunt in another area of Japan. And he's not going to let that go so easily. He's heard of big things. Of weapons, of gold, of other treasures. And particularly another cook. Because they keep getting scared off, and that's no fun for Motochika, trying to find a new one.

The ship that Motochika owns is far less like a ship and more like it's own province. There are buildings raised high and a massive canon on the front. Any normal person who just got on there would get lost in the halls. Zex, he notices, seems to find his way easily. There's very little to teach him that he's not willing to learn from watching. And that appeals to Motochika. Someone who just learns on his own makes things so much better for him.

As the moon starts to rise, he heads back to his quarters to find that Zex is in there, working with his journal. Groaning, his muscles ache as he comes further into his room.]


Seems I don't see you much until the end of the day.

[Although the rest of the sailors smell gross, Motochika smells far more like the sea air. He certain has enough water to take semi-regular baths too, while the other sailors seem to loathe it.]

What do you busy yourself with every day?
