So, as you can imagine this will take place in the AC universe. Specifically AC4.

This takes place in the West Indies but I will allow small ventures outside of there (North America, South America, West Africa, etc). The Templar/Assassin conflict will be playing a part in the storyline. You can side with the Templar's or Assassin's or simply remain neutral if you like. You must be a pirate/buccaneer in this RP, to avoid the awkward situation that would arise if two people from different factions met one another.

You are allowed more than one character, but they must start off in the same crew. So no having three different chars each captaining their own ship. It would have to be your main as the captain and the other chars as crew members or officers.

I would like it if you would each have a char that is a captain, because if you're char is the first mate of someone else's char then if the person who's char is above you in rank is away then it becomes difficult. If you would wish it otherwise then PM me.

Remember that while yes this is the AC universe you're chars are not the ninjas you play in the games, you're just pirates. So no badass hooded robes, parcour (free-running), insane fighting skills, or insane stealth. Remember that pirates aren't really stealthy, it's extremely hard to stay hidden in the midst of a battle. The extent of stealth I will allow would be pickpocketing like in the Ezio games, where you just bump into someone (however don't expect to just walk through massive crowds and steal every coin purse) but that would only be in cities.

Every ship starts from the bottom. No starting off with a full iron-plated hull, mortars, 100+ cannons etc etc. You will have to build your ships and crew up. You may build a fleet and obtain a cove, however you may not start with either. I will present opportunities for that.

Ships:

Schooner: The smallest and fastest of the ships. Built for speed and hit-and-runs it has little room for cannons and so is ill-suited for a fight. It can hold a crew of approximately 50 and at most about 25 guns. They are too small to have an effective ram or mortars.

Brig: Larger and slower than a schooner, brigs are good all-round ship being fast enough to outrun ships like frigates while still able to carry enough firepower to hold out in a small skirmish against other brigs and some weaker frigates. They are capable of carrying up to 75 crew members and 50 guns. They are also the most effective ramming ship but cannot effectively ram with anything larger than a light ram.

Frigate: Frigates are larger and slower than brigs and are good at skirmishing with other ships but not terribly great at outrunning them. They can carry a maximum crew of about 150 and carry about 100 guns at the maximum. They can carry a moderately sized ram but are not as effective as a brig.

Man O' War: men of war are huge galleons, the largest, slowest and deadliest of the ships. Only a fool would attempt to attack a man o' war with less than a man o' war but they can be quite easily outrun. They can carry a maximum crew of 275 and can carry about 200 guns. They can carry a heavy ram that can deal devastating damage but given their speed it is ill advisable.

(Note that merchant ships may be any of the above types of ships but will not carry any guns but instead will have an armed escort.)

Roster:

Archmage Alator - (bios pending)

Ri'Do'Ja - (bios pending)

Sarin Strdr - (pending)

Took an arrow in the knee -

Name - William Locke.

Sex - Male.

Nationality - English.

Age - 32.

Appearance - William stands at about 6'2 with blue eyes and dark brown hair. He has fairly rough and weather-beaten features and tanned skin covered in many tattoos that cover most of his body. He supposedly has an entire map of the known world tattooed on his back. He has a broad chest, shoulders and head with a longish beard that touches the top of his chest and shoulder-length messy hair with a bandanna around his forehead.

Equipment - He arms himself with six pistols (four on his chest and two under the front of his belt) and an ornate cutlass on his left hip with a dagger on his right hip. He wears very brightly coloured clothing typically a red silk surcoat with silver designs over regular, loose white cotton clothing with large, green silk cuffs with gold designs and a matching broad-brimmed hat with several brightly coloured feathers sticking out and matching cuffed boots, minus the feathers.

Backstory - William was born in Nassau to a pirate father. He never knew his mother and his father never talked about her so he always assumed she died birthing him which always made him feel terrible. He spent most of his time aboard pirate ships and smuggling vessels and grew up being raised as a pirate and smuggler.

When he was fourteen his father died after falling over the deck of a ship after having too much rum leaving William as an orphan. He managed to get by as a cabin boy aboard a pirate schooner called The Barnacle.

When he was twenty he became a full pirate and captained his first ship, a brig named The Barnacle in memory of the ship he learned on, at the age of twenty-six.

Ship's bio:


Name: The Ares.

Class: Man O' War (subject to possible change).

Appearance: The Ares is a very large ship, with three decks (four if you count the surface one) and four masts each with four large sails. It has a raised stern (like the Queen Anne's revenge) and a figurehead in the shape of a boar rearing like a horse with its mouth agape. Its hull is painted a dark red and its sails are made from black leather with red skulls painted on each and it has a blackwood wheel.

Equipment: It carries a crew of 150 men and in total 100 guns (three in the front, nine in the back and 44 on either broadside) and six swivel guns (three on either side).

Notable crew: "Old salt", the aged paymaster aboard the Ares, no one can remember a time without Old salt aboard the Ares. No one can remember seeing him move either, or his real name. "Black Jack", a young man found as a stowaway who was given a position on the ship renowned for his gambling skills and excellent singing. "Hawk eye", the primary lookout on the Ares, said to have such good eyesight he can see crabs moving at the bottom of the sea. "Phobos and Deimos", a pair of red howler monkeys acting as the ship's mascots and William's pets, no one is entirely sure how they ended up on board but they've always been there.

Other bios:
Name: Renardo Mendoza.

Occupation: First mate aboard the Ares.

Nationality: Spanish

Sex: Male.

Age: 27.

Appearance & equipment: (I'm not entirely sure how to describe him. He looks like the duellist from AC4 multiplayer wearing the Swashbuckler outfit, teutonic gloves, braided-gold shoulders, golden belt and carrying the gem encrusted guarded blade with no changes to physical appearance.)

Backstory: Renardo was born in Spain to a fairly well-off family allowing to attend a sword school nearby where he learned La Vendreza Destreza (a Spanish form of combat) and became quite good at it.

He always found his life in Spain tedious though, boring. He grew restless so he decided to leave Spain and live as he pleased. He got on a ship and sailed for Nassau.

In Nassau, he soon befriended William Locke, captain of the brig The Barnacle and sailed under him as first mate. He has sailed under him as first mate ever since, aboard several different ships.

Name: Kumi.

Sex: Male.

Age: 33.

Occupation: Quartermaster aboard the Ares.

Nationality: Ashanti.

Appearance: (I'm not entirely sure how to describe him. He looks like the mercenary from AC4 multiplayer wearing the prestige outfit, hobnailed leather wrists, ashanti's necklace, hobnailed belt, hobnailed shoulder and carrying adorned silex pistols with no changes to physical appearance.)

Backstory: Kumi was born in the Ashanti empire in Africa but was abducted by English slavers when he was fourteen. Since then, he has been bought and sold numerous times and travelled across the West Indies working on countless plantations.

When he was thirty however, the plantation he was working on was raided by the Ares and he and all the rest of the slaves on the plantation were freed. Some of them joined the crew of the ship, Kumi among them. He quickly rose through the ranks and became quartermaster and one of William's most trusted friends.

You'll have to negotiate that with someone then post a bio and you're in. I for one would like all my crew to be NPCs.

My bio, tell me if I should change something please :)

Bio:

Name: Robert Charleston

Height: Robert stands near six and a ahalf feet tall, wich has resulted in that some call him 'The giant'.

Age: 42

Appearance: In mostly black (looking as the Templar armor do, the one you unlock with all templar keys in AC4) and with a pirate hat in the same colour with four pistols and two pirate cutlasses around his hip, Robert makes a fearsome sight. He has a moderately long black beard and hair and his eyes are blue as the sea.

Personality: Humorous, friendly and not without mercy when he is in a good mood makes him rather likeable among those on his side, and some on the other sides. However in his wrath he can be a terror for anyone who cross him. He is intelligent, determined and good at seeing the large picture, though he has problems admitting that he is wrong. He has an aura of respect around him, and the most have a healthy fear for him.

Skills and weaknesses: Besides navigating a ship and a natural gift for leading Robert is very gifted with a blade and rather good with a pistol. Though he hates marshes and keeps away from them, despite whatever treasure might rest inside. Also he is not a master at moving silently and unseen, although he can manage himself well enough in that.

Loyalty: He swears loyalty to Nassau.

Ship:

Name: The Black Dawn (A name he got from when a captain whom's ship he had raided was overheard saying 'They came like a black dawn in the early hours...' due to the dark-grey colour of the ship)

Class: Frigate

Power: It keeps thirty-two cannons on each of its broadsides, six at the front and two at the back of it, as many as could fit in on the ship. There are three levels of cannons, two under deck and one above. It has six mortars on the deck near the front of the ship and Robert keeps it always well-provisioned with gunpowder and weapons that could come handy for a pirate, such as cutlasses, grenades, muskets, flintlocks, boarding axes blunderblosses etc. It has a crew of a hundred and twenty.

Appearence:

(Kind of, that is Blackbeard's ship Queen Anne's Revenge made by Ubisoft, The Black Dawn does not have any red on her, so instead of the red colour on its sides as you see there she has the same colour there instead as she has on the lower parts, and her sails are dark grey. She also has more cannons than The Revenge.)

You're going to need to make him shorter and reduce the amount of cannons and crew on the ship. Also keep in mind that most of his personality is largely a matter of opinion and that most people couldn't read in this timeframe (under loves you said he likes to read).

If you haven't read the revised OP I would suggest you do so and make the corrections accordingly.
