    WEEK ONE

    With Captain Stoutsparrow the Plunderer at the helm, and the completely hook-handed Rocky Grifterfellow there to keep him entertained with naughty stories about how he hooked up with the governor's twin daughters, the Ten Tanks sets sail out from the limey port of Tortuga, seeking their fortune on the tropical seas of the islands of the Caribbean. The wind at their backs, there's no trouble with the captain's sanity, and he maintains a steady course - the only way things could fall apart is if the crew were somehow... derelict in their duties.

    Appointed by the captain to be the gunnery master, Skyler the Killer whips his lads into shape, maintaining the deck's quality, and ensuring the grog flowed freely to all those in dangerous vicinity to the dreaded soberity. Unfortunately, while his back is turned, Bandalor Grieg points at Shaka Moneymaker and says his beard is stupid, and the two break into a fight that leaves them unable to work the decks. Fortunately, things go fine without them. (Decks Check: 5 + 2 = 7, SUCCESS)

    On the rigging and sails, Anthony Anchises manages to keep his scrapping feelings to himself, and the ship sails free and clear. (Sails Check: 3 + 6 = 9, SUCCESS)

    The ship spots an island on the horizon, and they press forth, eventually making landfall. Captain Stoutsparrow the Plunderer, deciding that there is more adventure to be had if the whole crew explores the island, pushes all the crew of the ship down the gangplank, discovering that they're arrived on...

    THE ABANDONED TEMPLE

    Walking around the ancient, derelict structure, the crew stumbles upon small caches of treasure, though the place looked as though it had been picked clean over the years by pirates and other scavengers of booty. Still, with the crew's expert eye for stealing, and the captain's love of plunder unmatched on all the seven seas, they make off with a respectable haul. +53 GOLD

    The week ends, with all the pirates drinking heartily to their first success. And to many more to come! -12 GROG

    END OF WEEK TALLY
    BOOTY: 53
    GROG: 28


    THE CREW
    Spoiler:

    We'll give the crew and captain some time to discuss further plans before we begin the new week, shall we?

    I'm gonna go with wildcat, doesn't sound like the sort of thing one wants loose on a ship.

    Are ye daft, boyo? Is that rum or sea water that you're swiling? Not enough to slay the void in your head, says I.

    None hate water more than cats. A cat aboard defends the ship with all nine of its lives, at once! Can ye imagine the fury of a cat defending the planks? No, I doubt you can.

    Granted, getting a cat aboard, that's no picnic. But a wild cat aboard is a demon bottled.

    My vote's cast for today, but you... I've got me eye on you.

    Arrrrrrr wildwood, it does me heart good to see that a hearty like ye unnerstands so well. It be me fury that be the terror o' marines all along the Spanish Main!

    A fine job by mister captain stoutsparrow! 53 gold for 12 pirates is a hell of a haul. Why if I know my maths, it's not less than a fine dozen pieces of booty for each of us salty dogs. A fine huzzah for the captain of the ten tanks, the thievienest buccaneer of the thievenest crew on the seven seas!

    Booty like that gives me a hankering for some grog. Shall we stop into port next?

    Here's the rules on ports:

    Roll on the Port Happenings table immediately upon arriving at Port. When the Pirates arrive at Port each of them will spend one Booty on the essentials, which includes enough grog to keep them happy. If they do not have enough Booty they manage to steal enough to get by. After leaving the brothel more Grog may be bought for one Booty a barrel. The crew may also spend one Booty and one Grog to recruit a new Pirate, rolling for their Strength in the same way as with a starting pirate. Any number of pirates can be hired at a Port in this way. Pirates do not drink the ship's grog while in port, as it's included in their "essential" costs.

    Oh and I'm afeared the terrible metalman Gumpy will be little use to us on this voyage, fierce though he may be. There ain't no recourse for a shiny metal automaton to stave off the salty sea where we're headed. Best to push him over now then to watch him rust later.

    Arrrrr me hearties!

    This curse, t'is an evil business, but since I've had me daily ration o' grog, an' liberated the Captain's ration as well, I'm tempora'ly confident that I can overcome 't all, become Captain, an' find a score o' whores ta claim as me own with the captain's share of the booty, which we'll purloin on arr way t' the next port.

    An' since democracy be fer the weak and sober, ye should all listen te me and vote 38th Doe te walk th' plank, seein as how I carefully reached out an' flogged the first scallywag I came across this mornin'....or is it afternoon? who can say... an' it was this blimey landlubber. So he must be curs'd.

    My general policy as Skyler - I will gladly shoot anyone if doing so saves more lives than it costs. (By forestalling a nasty random encounter, for example.)

    Should I also shoot anyone that keeps us from achieving our goal? For example, if we'd rolled lower on Decks this time, shooting Grieg would have made the difference between success and failure.

    What say ye, Captain? Kill the malingerers if they get in the way?
