Age of Sail



Age of Sail


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.


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!

[Hmmmm... not really sure if they'd know one another in canon, but I'm amused by the idea that she thinks she can get away with being a stowaway(because she assumes none of the crew can see her).]

Pirate femlock? Joan is an aristocrat wanting adventure

[personal profile] acertainlifestyle 2017-07-24 10:40 pm (UTC)(link)
She's lost count of the days they have been adrift at sea.

It can't have been that long. But the salt air along with the heat and dehydration are making her delirious. The sun beats down from above and Lady Joan begs for the night to come. Nights are cool and the stars make for more pleasant viewing.

There are no ores. No way of steering this damn raft of a boat. She knows that it's unlikely anyone will find her now, if news of the shipwreck has got back to home.

It's worse that she's not alone. Yet her companion can hardly provide conversation.

The wolfhound, Gladstone, curls up at his end of the boat, whimpering with hunger and the same fear gnawing at Joan. What kind of captain brings his dog on board a ship? A dead one now, anyway. At least the beast hasn't tried to eat her yet. Joan cringes at the thought she might have to kill and eat the poor mutt if it comes to it.

She reaches and pats the dog's fur. Please, Lord, don't let it come to that.

Joan collapses next to the animal as the boat drifts on. She doesn't see the black sails on the horizon.

"Come aboard, sir," the boy said, handing his papers to the Captain. He'd been told this was the proper way to say he'd just come on board the ship. While he looked young and fragile for a cabin boy, there was an eager spark in his eye. He saluted, "Charles Francis Xavier."
