[B4B]Booty for Booty - Endgame Begins on p10

SUPERSUGASUPERSUGA Registered User regular
edited March 2010 in Critical Failures
Booty for Booty is a game of leading your pirate crew on adventures across the high seas with just two goals. Booty, and spending it on other Booty. For those of you who'd played Teen Island or Battle Chef with me this is a similar sort of game.

The rules are found above, but because we're playing on a forum there'll be a few twists. There'll be not one but three ships, competing for the goal of returning to port with 100 Booty. Each ship will have three players that divide the duties of managing the ship, acting in order each turn.

Captain: Decides on the bearing for the ship, assigns the crew to their jobs and, when in Port, decides when to hire new crew.
Deckmaster: Rations out the Grog to the crew and makes the Deck roll, handling any crew events that occur as a result of failing it. Also responsible for rolling on the Sober Pirate table when grog isn't supplied.
First Mate (name pending a better suggestion): Makes the Sail roll and handles any Sea Encounters and Islands to be explored.

(To clarify, these roles are completely separate to the in-game role of Captain that one pirate must always hold).

These changes may screw with the turn order in the rules a little, but I'll work out the specifics when I know how much interest we have. Currently I plan to have every Captain act, then every Deckmaster, then every First Mate.

The game has been a lot of fun in IRC and I'm hoping it'll carry across to the forums well. Those interested post below and we'll draw teams and positions at random if we get enough.

Boring stuff like die rollers and turn limits to materialise once there's interest.

    Yesterday's adventure ended with 24 dead pirates after three trips out to sea. The first journey accumulated a haul of 100 booty. The other two were not as successful. (Especially the last one, since nobody returned from it.)

    They go out to sea. with a full crew of like 8 pirates. They send me back to port with 2 pirates. 100 Booty, but 2 pirates.

    Next time it was my turn, they had killed 7 out of 10 pirates and had contracted bird flu. They killed all of the pirates.

    Hmph.

    We got three nice booty-gaining Island Events in succession (Kingdom of Booty, Treasure Cave, and Buried Treasure) to start the game, sending in everyone each time. Of course, it left us with just two pirates by the time it came to head back to port, but lonelyahava got us back safely.

    Well, that's 9 players. I'll now make some random draws to divide you into your teams and give you your roles.

    Ship A
    Captain: lonelyahava
    Deckmaster: Daius
    First Mate: Kime

    Ship B
    Captain: Infidel
    Deckmaster: nefffffffffff
    First Mate: Adventfalls

    Ship C
    Captain: simonwolf
    Deckmaster: MrBlarney
    First Mate: romanqwerty

    The Captain is responsible for rolling (and naming) their crew and naming their ship. I'll stress that other members of the team are encourages to chip in with suggestions for names of both pirates and ships. Listen to your team-mates, captains!

    All rolls through Invisible Castle, with links and be sure to add what you're rolling for in the notes (requires signup but it's free). Your character name is your forum name and the campaign name is Booty. Once I have a ship and crew from every captain I'll post a clearer turn order and explain how exactly we're going to do this.

    DBM: If you're interested in playing I can put you on the reserve list in case of dropouts.

    You did that wrong Ahava, you can't have two of the same legendaries.

    And are people picking their trait for their 6s, and then rolling the other one?

    simonwolf, I think I can forgive you somewhat, given the pirate crew you've assembled.

    A couple names for your consideration, Rubello Santiago for the Stealin' pirate, and Castille DiMarco for the Shootin' Peg Leg pirate.

    Sure, I'll be a replacement pirate!

    I read through the rules that didn't include events, but I didn't quite understand how the game was played. I'll probably give them a more thorough reading later. So this is PbP, or in IRC?

    Its PbP but it works extremely well in the IRC channel.

    The game is basically played by managing the events, so if you read a few, you'll get an idea of the sort of things you have to cope with. You roll up a crew, and set sail. Every round you must ration out grog to your crew. Crew that receive no grog may end up going crazy and doing Bad Things. Depending on how many crew are assigned to which tasks as well as how well you roll, you may or may not reach your destination (either an island to plunder, or port to restock grog and crew). Every turn you must roll on several of the event tables, depending on where you are, with the possiblity of good and bad things happening. The gist of the game is resource management of booty (which is generally gained from island events) and grog (which is purchased at port with booty), and dealing successfully with the events you roll. Certain pirate traits give you bonuses to handling the events.

    Ahava: You can only have one of each Legendary Pirate. The second one keeps his strengths but doesn't gain the special legendary bonuses, and will also need a Feature to differentiate him.

    Also, as Erandus said, when you roll a 6 for Pirate Strength you should name the first Strength you're choosing in the notes for the bonus Strength roll. So if I roll a 6 and decide I want Shootin' for my first Strength I have to put that in the notes section of the roll to find the second Strength.

    Noone needs to reroll anything to meet that new rule, as it was an oversight on my part.

    Some more info to come shortly. Get these scumbags named.
