Happy seventh anniversary

Before the Mast!


Peace with Spain was signed in February 1720. In late April its news arrived to the West Indies, so all the Navies got allied against the common foe – pirates, making their trade more difficult to survive. Which side are you on?

Be ye a pirate, a naval officer, a slave or a lady, you will find a place aboard one of our four ships or live on a paradise island. Men aboard any ship are strongly recommended as first characters, and civilians as secondary ones. No more female sailors are allowed.

We are not the usual sandboxy RPG, neither a narrative-driven one, but a story-focused writing community where each actively writing character can make a difference and an impact on the overall plot. We are writing collaboratively a coherent story with many sideplots aside of it. We also have guides to help you with the time setting, and are more influenced by historical events rather than following them by the history books!

Well, you are another year older and you haven't changed a bit.
That's great because you are perfect just the way you are.
For our favourite seafarer, the warmest wishes for your birthday, brought by a messenger
and accompanied by one of Maribel's cakes:

May your birthday and every day be filled with the warmth of sunshine,
the happiness of smiles, a heavy rain of success, the sounds of laughter,
the feeling of love and the sharing of good cheer.
