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!

pirate aboard the "Rising Sun"

14-th of May 1720
Place: - North of Basse Terra


"We're not British, we're not Saxon, we're not English. We're Celtic and we're proud to be!"


The sun was high in the sky, everyone had returned to Tortuga safe...for the most part that was. Minus a bruise or two, after a long trip after the slavers and those who had gone to Kingston. Niamh took the time to rest. Seeking the stop she often sought in Cayona. When she wanted to be alone, the spot on the shore she had once made plans with Fletcher for a future that was as dead as the food one consumed. Empty as the bottom of a rum barrel. She laid on a blanket on the shore, the shade of a tree overhead and stared out at the water with thoughts running through her mind. Thoughts she would push away and then draw near again. Thoughts that lingered in her mind.

She turned over that kiss from Callum. Thinking about it for a moment and then pushing it away before it came back to her again. She felt a heat on her cheeks as she thought of it and swore under her breath. What the hell was she thinking Fletcher was barely cold in that grave. Barely cold, barely gone but then again that had not stopped her. Having only known him just a few short months.

Niamh found she liked the way Callum was, he was light hearted and carefree and that was something she needed in her life. He reminded her of Killian in a small way, and his heated kiss had surely stolen her breath.

Tongue poking out the right side of her cheek as she thought. Then pushed the thought of both Celtic men away.

Laying there she felt tired, heavy-lidded but perhaps it was heavy hearted even more. She should have been in Basse Terra but Niamh had came up here for a change of scenery. She was restless. The wandering spirit inside her gathered up the blanket over her arm and boots in hand. As she walked along the sandy shore for a bit.
