Join the most epic naval battle!

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

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!

HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY BEFORE THE MAST!

First of all, the already traditional youtube movie featuring the art submitted by our members for the art contest



And secondly... another surprise... and not only a site birthday's speech

PARTY IN STYLE WITH ELENA AND HEX!

Note: No British flags had been harmed during the movie session wink.gif

The only victims were the cake (eaten) and the champagne bottle (emptied).



Many happy returns to our lovely site... and many happy encounters between our community members!

Happy fourth anniversary BEFORE THE MAST!





...and given that we have people who draw well and also, in our story, the French colonies are well represented...







I preferred the tumblr version instead of the youtube one, which is blocked in certain countries.

With excuses because I don't know why, unlike last years, now the movie cuts some of the images. Believe me they are integral and one could read all the quote... on the image, not so much on the movie sad.gif
