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!

While i do realise, that i myself have been neither a constant sight nor a usual poster at topics, i have at least this time, the opportunity to anounce my abcense.

In the past, several situations have prevented me from giving exact answers as to why i am rarely seen or why i do not usualy write, even if the story itself here is so full of things to write, and so, i could not realy tell much. Them being usualy sticking my neck out for others, like helping pass books unnoticed, "bringing" medicine to kids who need them, running from place to place to win a loaf of bread, and now the worst.

Now... I have to read even harder than before, to try and get a place in the university. Be it social or grammatical wings.

I liked the atmosphere a lot in this site. It is not runned by a few people like their personal sect, nor does it have a ghastly amount of rules like it is an election party! Keep it that way please. Even if i leave complately, or stay and read more than a month, it is best this site remain as it is smile.gif

Er... What else? Oh! What i meant to say is that i will be entirely abscent for the rest of August. Enjoy the rest of the summer, and think of ways to help your fellow men. I won't always be here to scold you!

Cheerio, and long live the kings in the north!

I realy do like writing fanfiction. That's a fancy fact about me. But, what is not a common (but still fancy) fact about me is writing stories out of crossovers that turn out to be stories of their own, with different settings and characters. Now dear reader, you will say, how in the world it that even possible?!? Well, i have no answers to that, but i have only results from all this. One of them, is the stories of Tom. A character designed to be the pure blooded, incestous, good mannered noble from Scotland version of... Harry Potter...

Turns out though, that if one dares change the setting of a character and their background, they have to change everything else in order to answer the why and how of several things. So, that is how the wonderfull mix of Game of Thrones comes in to save the plot. Tom is a Stark and Potter parody, but what of the rest of the Game of Thrones characters parodied?!? They must have their own story.

So, this is how Tom's brother John (aka Robb Stark...) becomes a figure that... I did not realy want to mock! So, in my weird crossover parody, John turns out not only to be the fabled king of the Scots, but also, a legend due to his shared dragon blood.

Enjoy as a start, the song for King John of the Scotts, the dragon born of the tales, that turned out to be much more interesting that the main hero Tom. Who, by the way, just fools around in a castle, chasing a half-dead serial killer who used to be prince (yes, a parody of Viserys the king of Rags, and our favourite Voldemort...)

King John, King John, by his honor is sworn,
To keep the false kings forever at bay!
And the fiercest foes rout when they hear his triumph's shout,
King John, for your blessing we pray!

Hearken now, sons of Scotland, to an age, not long ago,
And the tale, boldly told, of the one!
Who was through the blessed union of times old,
Kin to dragons, and the races of men,
With a power to rival the sun!

King Edward upon wings, who darkened the sky,
His roar fury's fire, and his scales sharpened scythes.
Men ran and they cowered, and they fought and they died.
They burned and they bled as they issued their cries.
For freedom was close to their eyes!

Then, through the steppes of cold,
Came a King from the North,
To Scotland he bowed and to enemies not!
And a voice, he did wield, on that glorious field,
When great Britain shuddered with war!
Mighty soul, like a blade, cut through enemies all,
As King John issued his roar!

We needed saviors to free us from Edward's mad rage,
Heroes on the field of this new war to wage.
And if Edward wins, freedom is gone from this world,
Lost in the shadow of the black wings unfurled.

King John, King John, by his honor is sworn,
To keep the false kings forever at bay!
And the fiercest foes rout when they hear his triumph's shout,
King John, for your blessing we pray!

For the sages have foretold, of black wings in the cold,
That when brothers wage war come unfurled!
Edward, Bane of Scots, ancient shadow unbound,
With a hunger to swallow the free world!

But then came our one King on that terrible day.
Steadfast as winter, he entered the fray.
And all heard the music of Edward's doom,
The sweet song of Scotland, sky-shattering Teanga!

But a day, shall arise, when the mad King's lies,
Will be silenced forever and then!
Fair Scotland will be free from foul Edward's maw!
For King John wills to be the savior of men!

And so King John freed us from Edward's rage,
Gave us the gift of freedom, ushered in a new Age!
And if Britain's eternal, then eternity's done,
For her story is over and her dragons are gone.

King John, King John, by his honor is sworn,
To keep the false kings forever at bay!
And the fiercest foes rout when they hear his triumph's shout,
King John, for your blessing we pray!

It is not quite common news that i enjoy creating songs, but what is not quite common, is that i had made a story with dwarven characters, basd on the rise of the first real world Islamic Caliphate. I had done so as an exercise on my studies of the history on the Arab world, but it turned out to become a story of its own. As of now it has some songs based on real ones, because amateur work demands real inspiration. Enjoy one of the many songs!

Far inside the Deep Roads rise
Leave us standing below the night
What was before, we see once more
Our kingdom a distant light

Fiery mountain beneath the holy crescent moon
The words unspoken, we will be there soon
For the Stone a song that echoes on
And all who find us will know the tune

Our prophet's words we must not forget
Our Golden King's lies we must not forgive
The path we walk by the Stone
Set full of gifts, but for the enemies none!

All eyes on the hidden road
To the Lonely Stone borne
We’ll ride in the gathering storm
Until we get our long-stolen home

We lay under the Lonely Stone's Warmth
In slumbers deep and dreams of warm hearth
We must awake, our lives to live
And in the darkness a torch we lit

From long ago when lanterns burned
Till this day our hearts have yearned
Her fate unknown the Lonely Stone
What was stolen must be returned

We must awake and make the day
To find a song for heart and soul

Our prophet's words we must not forget
Our Golden King's lies we must not forgive
The path we walk by the Stone
Set full of gifts, but for the enemies none!

All eyes on the hidden road
To the Lonely Stone borne
We’ll ride in the gathering storm
Until we get our long-stolen home

Far away from The Lonely Stone's Warmth.

In The Name Of The Warm And Lonely Stone

We seek the Stone's protection
From the evil minds;
And begin with the name of the Stone
Most Merciful, Most Kind!

The Stone is Great

The Stone is Great this I know,
For the earth tells me so;
All of us to her belong,
We are weak but she is strong.

The Stone is One
Related to none
The Stone is One!
No father, no mother
No sister, no brother
No daughter, no son
The Stone is One!

We Thank you holy Stone!

For All the things
we have today;
for all our friends
we love so much
for home, for food
for work and play,
we thank you,
Oh warm and lonely Stone.

The wind blows cold on brake and heath
The weeping willows cry
The mountains dark are jagged teeth
Against a leaden sky.

So suddenly the blow it fell
That none could it resist
Cold lands soon found themselves in hell
With blow of icy fist.

The heretic armies marched to war in vain
Just when the bell had tolled
For all they met was death and pain
Forever after cold.

From far across the caves of Isenstadt the ice-cold wrath of the Stone had reached.
No matter the heretics pleas, cruel uncaring gods looked down and could not be beseeched.
Shadow dark like smoke and gloom then spread across the land.
No place is there, though dark or fair, that did not feel the Stone's hand.

The coward and cruel lords of old
Too fell to flame and blade
And pestilence unclean took hold
With works of good made.

The creeping mists and hand of doom
Had laid it all to waste.
The darkest end like closing tomb
When false prophets were debased.

For yet the clouds of stormy war
Upon the vistas loom.
And known it is on farthest shore
That men now face their doom.

The lies and filth of kingdoms gone cannot the vale forfend
For trees that brave the storm and wind are doomed to break and bend.
Now hope and joy lies underfoot, both trodden in our stolen soil.
And lives of heretics will forever more hold naught but pain and toil.
