In our last sea bound adventure we sailed for the Crimea and Battled the Ottoman Empire's navy there. Finding a massive store of Treasure The task of searching for The Corsairs base of operations in Africa remains as does finding a way through the Turkish navy moored in Istanbul to break out of the black sea. The Year is 1744 and four weeks have passed since the Privateer flotilla seized the Ottomans hidden port in the Crimea With their ships Repaired and their Coffers full The Privateers are prepared for the Next Leg of their adventure.

Now the rules!

You shall need a ship and a swarthy crew if ye are to survive the high seas! You may create an era appropriate ship that is fourth rate class or below. i recommend using to find a vessel to use as your frame work for your ship. Id also recommend you Stick to frigate type vessels as we will mostly be fighting Corsairs with fast moving ships such as Xbecs brigs and Sloops. Our fourth Rate is our flag ship but it will be vulnerable to faster vessels while it brings great fire power it must be protected. Frigates serve well for privateers due to their great maneuverability and fire power.

You may bring any character you desire as long as they be human or easy to pass as one. You may not use weapons or armor that are not era appropriate you may not use any magic or force powers. You may only use your skill with blade and black powder weapons as well as tactics.

What is required

I need three captains and ships as well as my self. You must be able to listen to instructions. and you shall also need a character skilled with a blade and tactics as well as an under standing of fire arms. Also the ability to speak like a pirate is encourage but not required! Also please be sure to make you tell the nationality of your captain. Witch of course must be from a prevalent nation of the time. As we have lost SGOS and Trebor we need two replacement cpatains at least
