    OK - got the game - tried to send a message to Peasant Dave but I think I don't have the required postage.

    Anyway, I'd love to join up with you guys if you have room. I'm on your server and my name is:

    Roy McArglebargle

    Got gifted this by my father, looks worth a shot. Patching endlessly at the moment, argh.

    So how's the music in this game?
    I went to a trumpet and piano concert last night by some of the faculty at the college I went to, and one of the pieces in it was written by one of the two guys who wrote the music for PotBS. Apparently, the trumpet teacher at my college knew him in college, and he performed some of the trumpet tracks in the game. So that's kind of neat.

    We should definitely set up a game-on channel on the PA Ventrillo server. The info is here:

    http://forums.penny-arcade.com/showthread.php?t=39448

    That chat interface is soooooo wonky in PotBS, I think using Vent would be much more condusive to team play.

    At any rate, I'm gonna be on from around 5 or 6 EST until 10 EST tonight. Would love to meet up with some folks and even if we don't do group missions it would be nice to have voice chat's on the Vent server.

    Also, do we (our society) have any goals? Is there anything that I should be producing for the group? I'd be happy to do my part, but I'll admit, I'm very newb-ish regarding the economy in the game.

    Is there a trial yet? I'm interested in trying this out. How RL friendly is this? is it possible to get to 50 in a reasonable about of time?

    The game is very casual leveling friendly. There are no trial accounts although anyone who bought a physical product will have a friend code. I have given mine out and will let everyone know if I get a hold of another.

    Was going to ask as well if there was a trial, now that I know instead there are 'buddy codes' I'd just like to ask if anyone still has theirs and is willing to send one to me? The email you can send it to would be [email protected]. I'd definitely like to give this game a try, sounds like a lot of fun from what I've read.

    I've heard this game doesn't have much of a twitch factor, which is good.

    Do you think this this going to be playable for a guy like me who gets really high pings? (satellite internet).

    For reference: Guild Wars was perfectly fine for me once I got the pacing down, but in WoW things like facing and distance meant I was absolutely fucked for pvp or enemies that moved around a lot.

    The combat is relatively slower paced and deliberate, so you would probably be fine. We seem to be at a shortage of trial accounts otherwise I would try to hook you up. Certainly if you don't PvP you won't have any problems at all, and even 6v6 group PvP should be fine.

    So I finally got the 'scavenge' skill last night. Hopefully this will help me make some loot. I think now that I'm level 12, I'm going to ignore missions for a while and prey on ships and then sell the deeds for profit. Is that how the rest of you have been leveling up, or have you been going the mission route?

    Also, did any of you ever bother to have that one NPC in the ports adjust the difficulties of missions? If so, how does it effect exp/loot from the missions?

    I'm up for about anything. I'd really like to focus on getting our groups heavily involved in the economy (if others are interested that is). Perhaps us having a couple of groups from different nations on the same server could give us some advantage.

    Yarrrr!

    If anyone still has a buddy code floating around, I'd love to give this a try. I tried to get into EVE because the economy sounded cool, but I hated the space combat and the Fedex missions. Time to start thinking up cool pirate names.

    I will note that if you play French on Rackham you will not be able to play with us, so if you want to play French you might want to do it on another server, and then roll a pirate alt on Rackham. That said, you are certainly welcome to fight against us too. ^_^

    I should be on Saturday evening. I will add the PA vent info into the Society screen though. If you track down the information and PM it to me I'll make sure that goes up tonight.

    I would also like to apologize for not being on as much as I would like. 2008 has hit me pretty hard, both in my work and personal life.

    I too would like to be on more but I'm going to the Dominican (the real one, not the virtual one) so I'll be offline after next week for a few days.

    You could try the official game forum - although it may require a Sony Station ID.

    I just tried searchin on Yahoo and it looks like you might be able to find a trial key on the interwebs. I would do more research but of of the search results are gamer sites that my work filter bans.

    For anyone who wants to play France, we have a society with about 6 people, 3 of which are actively working on the economy part. The society is called Gurre pour le Benefice and our leader's name is Church de Gre. You can just send him a tell ingame if you want an invite, or just pm Church (that's his forum name).

    We have about 3 naval officers, 2 free traders and 1 privateer.
