Happy seventh anniversary

Before the Mast!

Welcome

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!

Hello all. I'm considering joining, but I just wanted to ask whether this board had an age limit.

Thanks biggrin.gif

What do you mean? Writers or characters?

For writers, you should be older than 13 as per jcink rules.

For characters, there is no age limit as long as the character's bio is in concordance with the age (and the playby is shown accordingly too). I mean, one shouldn't have a ship captain who is 20 years old, because a lad at that age is barely learning seamanship. A man at 20 can't be a ship boy either, but already an ordinary seaman, etc.

As for the subjects approached in writing, the site is rated PG-13 (L2-S2-V2), so it is not really limiting. In the spirit of those years, mature themes such as sex, violence, abuse exist, without too explicit scenes (fade to black required).
