Well, I started a pirate SD a while ago, and it went ok for a while...wanna start a new one?
but with you as the starter.... errr.... you have an impressively bad SD track record....
yea i know...anyone else interested in GM'ing it?
Was it Sd Pirates of the Caribbean or the Pirates of the Stars one? I forget which.
we decided on pirates of the stars...which i personally like better
I liked that one. Junei never got to shoot anyone. Then again he never really interacted with anyone either.
Give me some more detail so I have a framework for my characters and ship.
Also interested, give me something to work with.
I'm in. I've got more free time to devote to this sort of thing now.
I´m all for it.
Is the Black pearl going to once more haunt the spaceways and destroy any foolish enough to stand against her?
I know if we do this again I'm making my ship slightly biggger and changing the design.
...Citrakite, you're thinkin of something different...it was character based
Now this sounds interesting...
I thought we did have a Black Pearl in space since we started it back when Pirates of the Caribbean had come out. I was the Lightstar, that weird elongated seed shaped ship with solar sails.
sorry, you are way off citrakite...go to my profile and find it...
As for the rest, i'll get some character rules up soon
Okay lets start this baby up. I'll be my last character.

Eye Colour: gray
Hair color: black
Height 5 foot 11
Weight: 140 lbs
Weapons: 45. longcolt
Equipment: laptop, extra battery packs
Bio: Lank was one of those children who got into everything. A locked cuboard, a hidden attic, or a firewalled database. Whatever parents brought him up did not do a good job of it because he started learning how to hack at 8 and has been doing so since then.
Name: John Maras
Eye colour: Purple
Skin: Dark Grey
Sig 550 sniper
Very Sharp Knife
Bio: John is a happy person if you were to see him. You wouldn't expect him to be a hartless killer at night, and day depending if the job requires him to. He has worked with rouge groups but left as soon as his mission was over. he has a slight soft spot for women and doesn't do well when in close proximity to them. He tends to get nervous and mess up. He seems not to age and has worked for peoples grandchildren after the grandparents have long since died. No-one seems to know who or what he is, but he looks like an elf, but isn't.

When i posted I realized there had been the pirate Sd where we were al to start on some planet and somehow meet up. I hadn't been in that one but i had posted a char for it.
Who am I kidding I'll use Junpei
Name: Junpei Karano
Eyes: Light purple
Hair: Dark blue
Appearance: 5'8" 156 lbs with a long thin scar running from the front of his chin to right under his ear. There are numerous other small scars marking his arms and chest. His hair is cut into a spikey crewcut.
Personality: Under a fun loving facade is the real man that serious about his work and fulfilling his contract when he is working. He dislikes involving others in his pursuit's if necessary and has a sense of morals he follows. Even if the choice is what is right and what is legal. Right wins out every time. Some consider this to be a great weakness but he holds it as the one redeeming value that keeps him from being just another merc.
Equipment: Carbon suit, duster, long boots, traveling cloak
1x Long knife
12x Throwing knives/Shuriken
1x switch blade in toe of his boot.
2x H&K USP
2x Beretta 96
History: Growing up as a poor farmer's son in a large family he one day snuck onto the starship of a merchant passing through town on his way to a trade union outpost. The merchant turned out to be a merc send by the local governor to scout out the fortress like outpost and bring back recon on it's strengths, man force, etc. The Merc, Erikson took the young boy under his wing and showed him the world and what was required to do his job. He taught him how to be one and the rules of the job. Never sign anything without reading the fine print. If the contract sounds wrong don't sign it. Once a contract is signed your bond to complete it, no matter what. This also goes both ways as he proved once during a hard mission.
Name: Rachael V. Tannenbaum
Weapons: IMI Jericho 941 .40S&W; Colt Delta Elite 10mm; Styer AUG .223; Orion Battle Dagger.
Bio: Rachael was born to rich parents on Earth. Her relationship with her mother was rocky for as long as she could remember. When she was 17, she lied about her age and joined the Marines, partly in search of adventure, and partly to spite her mother. In the Marines, she learned to pilot the small attack ships the Corp uses to support their planetary assaults. Her other experiences being stationed at the far corners of the Galaxy showed her the excitement of the shader side of things. When she was discharged from the Marines, she quickly got on with a smuggler crew out of Orion. After a few years, she had enough money to buy her own ship, a tiny, 4-man skiff. With her new craft, she set out to make her fortune in the galaxy...
I'll probably join in. I'll decide on characters later.
Name: Thomas Bachfish
Rank: Captain of the Royal Navy (Inactive Reserve)
Bio: Thomas Bachfish was a rising star in the Royal Navy, until a mistake brought his career crashing down. He was the captain of the HMS Fearless then, a light cruiser, during the Thirty Year War. He was surprised by an enemy destroyer and got most of his command blown out from under him. The quick actions of his Tactical Officer saved the ship and most of its crew, but many had perished. The court-martial placed him in the inactive reserve, probably for the rest of his life. He went out to seek his fortune, securing the Ambuscale, a fair sized mechant vessel. He began illegally arming it to protect it from pirates. A few years later, his friends in high places in the Royal Navy secured him a warrant to arm ships, and sent a retired Q-Ship his way, another relic of the Thirty Year War. He reoutfitted it and rearmed it even more heavily than the Ambuscale, and named it unofficially the Pirate's Bane. Using "smart paint" and disguised transponder codes, the Pirate's Bane and the Ambuscale are the main assets of his shipping line. And because his ships always get to their destination, he can charge premium rates for cargo, and has set his sights on acquiring another ship.
