BOOTY FOR BOOTY
Booty For Booty is the game of pirates travelling the seven seas, searching for treasure, drinking grog, and generally having a grand old time. Except for the sobriety-induced insanity. Oh, and the broken masts. Did I forget to mention the crazed captains chasing white whales to the ends of the earth, despite the problems such a chase can cause? Because that totally happens, as well.
HOW DO WE PLAY
It's pretty simple! Everything in the game is based on a d6 engine. The ship has a crew, the crew is assigned tasks, and if they fail in those tasks, bad things happen. If they manage to do well, however, there's always a chance they'll arrive at a port or island - and those can range from extremely delightful to incredibly dangerous. Anything goes in the madcap world of Booty For Booty
You can read the full rules over here
- the game was invented by a member of the forums, SUPERSUGA, and he's one classy fellow for inventing it. I really hope you don't read the event tables, though - part of the fun in Booty For Booty
is never quite knowing what's going to happen next!
YOU DIDN'T REALLY ANSWER MY QUESTION
You're right! Sorry about that.
Here's how we play: every pirate is named by, and represents, a member of the forums. Whenever the ship recruits new crew, we add new people to the crew. Sometimes there'll be votes on what to do, and that's when the crew gets to weigh in on the way the ship's destiny will be shaped. The captain, though, that's the guy in charge - he determines where people will be working for the week, as well as being the final confirmation for a few events.
I handle all the dice rolls and post the weekly update whenever I think the time is right. We can usually get through one or two updates a day, depending on how schedules match up. Really, we're just watching this crew go slowly insane, and enjoying every second of it.
SO WHAT'S GOING ON NOW
Right now, we're following the adventures of the Ten Tanks
, a ship created for fun as a side game within Infidel and DrKippy's phalla, The Salty [Phalla]: Curse of the Crusty Pearls
. You can read all of the updates by clicking through these links:
HOW CAN I JOIN IN
Why, all you have to do is sign up! Post your pirate name in the thread, bolded and in SeaGreen
, and you'll be added to the list of pirates who'll be recruited from whenever the Ten Tanks
adds a new matey. Considering we've lost eleven pirates in eight updates, there's generally a pretty quick turnover. Feel free to sign up again if you've lost a pirate - give them a new name, though! No duplicates allowed in these waters, bucko.
