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!

The jewel of the British Empire since 1655 and the main sugar-exporting, slave-dependent colony, everything of importance happens here. Its main town, Kingston, was founded in 1692. Port Royal, destroyed by an earthquake, is not quite a safe harbour anymore for privateers and for pirates plying the Spanish trade shipping lanes.

The second-largest island in the Caribbean, divided between French rule (one third, the richest part) and Spanish rule (Eastern two thirds). French, English and Dutch pirates have stopping points in the uninhabited bays. The French part’s capital, Port de Paix, founded in 1665 by filibusters, just across Tortuga, is a flourishing town, surrounded by slave-dependent plantations.

A small island a little off the coast of Hispaniola, and any pirates’ idea of paradise, it has two main towns, Cayona and Basse Terre, where pirates meet, scheme and party.
