Join the most epic naval battle!

Make your mark upon our West Indies saga in "Doomsday"!


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!

Port de Paix dwellers

The inhabitants of Port de Paix, a French colony, are now busy with celebrating Saint Jean d'Ete and a wedding among the highest nobility. Time for everyone who happens to be in Port de Paix to know them better… and to add your personal flavour to the holiday!

I had a minor injury to a finger last week and the nail unfortunately got infected. It shouldn't be more than a week before I can post again, but right now it's all I can do to do my job, which also involves a lot of typing. The infection is gone, but it's still swollen and sore and throbs a lot. I may lurk, but no posting for a few days.

I will be going to Colorado to visit family the 8-13 of July (We won't be getting back until 1-2 in the morning on the 13. ) Although I'm significantly above average at typing, because of my cerebral palsy my lack of finger dexterity does not permit posting on my phone, and I won't have a lot of opportunity to be on the internet anyway. Sadly, I cant take my computer because our allowed bags are too small.

These would have been common names for babies born 1660-1702 (reigns of Charles II onwards) . Of course, this isn't all of them, just the most common in certain parishes, and I suppose since this board is historical fiction, any name is acceptable as long as it isn't outlandish. But I do think the history is interesting.
