As suggested by wantkrakens this is a thread for Pirates to "Post like a scurvy Pirate dog 'n introduce yerself 'n spin a tale 'bout ye"
This is a thread for old and new Pirates so anyone can look through and see what you have written.
I use Post like a Pirate for that scurvy flavor
Don't make a huge post maybe 10 or 15 lines of text in the typing area to keep it light and easy to read.
I suggest a brief hello about yourself (nothing too specific required).
Possibly the origin of your name (I think we had/have a thread about that but there's no reason we can't repeat it).
What you Collect/Play.
what percentage of player/collector you are.
Your favorite item/ship/crew from Pirates.
Share something about yourself not related to playing/collecting Pirates.

Avast ye dogs! I be Xerecs, a piratin' fellow from tha Golden State. Me be named after a character 'o sorts from a book series I be hopin' to write someday. T'was also me name when I be a minifig in another Universe, though it spelt differently.

I play the grand game 'o pirates, an I collect em' to play em', simple as tha'. I dunno what me percent 'o collectin' be to percent 'o playin', I be a pirate after all, the only math I cares about is 'ow much treasure I 'ave compared ta yours!
I also be a fair spacer, an' me Star Wars pocket-models be another game I plays.

I don't be havin' a favorite ship or crew see? But I do love me Cursed brethren.......

I be a7xfanben, which be also me piratename at other sites.

I collect 'n fight all sets, but like th' first few sets th' most.

In general I be 'bout 95% player 'n 5% collector; right now I be 'bout 99% player harrharr.

Of course, I consider myself much more of an Englishman or American than a Pirate! Very Happy As evidenced by my continual drubbing of those Pirate scoundrels in various games, including both CG1 and CG2. In fact, just last night I sank half a dozen Pirate vessels! Surprised

My favorite ship has always been HMS Lord Algernon, though certain vessels such as HMS Lord Walpole and El Acorazado aren't far behind.

I happen to play violin, and hope to be playin' some Pirates of the Caribbean tunes rather soon.

I hail from te beaut'ful cherry capital of ta whole wide Americas! I reckon meself a solid 104% player n a 2% collector [I aint no topologist].

I say the Ten masters are me favorite ships a six way tie fer em all! Anyone who says otherwise wil have to clash swords with me n me crew.

My friends from'da South Shiney Sees and the Cursed be my favorite allies in combat.

Tha famous pirate Henry Avery be one of ma inspirations for the game, 'nd I forever curse ta cursed Barbary Corsairs!

*an echoing voice comes from a sealed rum barrel being towed behind the ship.*

My name be Selvaxri, and a preferred title I use round the webbed seas.
Me home port be betwixt Xerces and xeriousone, but unless ye have me map- you'll never find my home port. buhahaha.

I been collecting yon game for several years now, spending many a dubloon on my collection.

I haven't shown preference for any ships or faction, as i've not played many a game. Though, i do feel a kinship with the Vikings.

afore i squandered dubloon amassing my horde, I sought to complete my most prized collection. After many years of pursuit, i gathered all adventures of a young and spirited boy named Max, his sage fowl Virgil, and nigh immortal bodyguard Norman.
I also peruse the funny books of illustration, none commissioned by the Marvel or DC conglomerates.

Ahoy all ye pirates! me moniker be volt, 'n I have used that moniker fer 20 years online. It came from me lust 'o physics 'n me talent to defend a base in Capture th' Flag with a lightnin' gun.

I only collect band 'o pirates, 'n don't really have the hour fer anythin' else. I be mostly a player, but I do like to collect certain ships even if they be garbage in battle. I have always loved th' French 'n Corsairs, 'n while Le Soleil Royale is probably me favorite French ship, Santo Columba 'n th' Aberdeen Baron be me signature ships.

I be a Physics teacher in real life 'n have 2 lads, one 'o which has already beaten me at 'tis battle, heh.

I am El Cazador, captain of the galley San Gabriel. As a Spaniard, my voice may sound ... "un poco diferente" ... to these scalawags or not, dependin' on me mood. Yar.

*Ahem*

I be El Cazador, or Caz, an' that name be from Monster Hunter, a series of video games by Capcom. Bein' more a player, I prefer th' mercenaries 'n their submarines in fight, but I sail under most flags. I don' like the Cursed an' their ilk, but I love ta' hunt down sea beasts!

My story ... I won't say much, yar, but I like to play me clarinet. And ta hunt monsters in my shiny Lagiacrus armor. But ye knew that.

Ahoy all ye pirates, me moniker be Black_Electric. me brother 'n I started collectin' ships when th' Spanish main first came out, but stopped playin' fer several years. 'tis past Christmas we were reminiscin' over th' a fun we had playin' 'n decided to get back into th' battle. We bought a few packs 'n some lots 'o ships from EBAY 'n have been playin' a few games. A note from one 'o th' sellers brought me here 'n I saw 'tis thread so I figured I would drop me moniker in.

I hail from th' DFW Metroplex, TX, 'n figured 'tis would be jolly place to ask around 'n spy wit' me eye if thar be any other band 'o pirates in th' area that might want to play a game.

In real life, me monkier be Robert and I be a Masters Student studyin' Computer Engineerin' 'n Physics, a Physics 'n Mathematics tutor, 'n an Intern at Texas Instruments.

I be the bald one from the south seas, Baldzillabill. Once upon a time I played this very game online and loved it! I miss it dearly. I still wish this game would be brought back. It is the only table top game I play and collect fer. I still love talking about this game and playing it. I play more games all by me onesie these days. I have several unopened packs that I refuse to open and I have such a major collection to make plenty of fleets for me or me mates.

Woh woh buccaneers, morgull is presented the most crawling pirate of Spanish waters. I have manned ships since 2006 and drunk rum with my parrot yesterday. I'm trying to (cof cof) make a new community of corsairs and pirates. Well I must go back to my cabin gruuuup!

I can't add "tale" to the end of the thread title despite having more room for text. Confused Perhaps it's because of how the "Sticky:" text shows up in the main forum title.

Subject: Back and setting sail   PostPosted: Thu Mar 30, 2017 2:27 am Reply with quote

Greetings you motley crew,

My men be knowing me as Iriis, a dutch captain making roost on the south side of the Great Lakes. Returning to this here game I be. I once sailed these waters back during the Spanish Main launch and Crimson Coast. By the time Revolution came about, my young mind was already off to other games. But here I be, back sailing these waters. I plan to show my cousin this fair game, hoping to interest her in unique games from days passed. I commissioned me self a fleet to be delivered within the week, and I'm already feeling the thrill and excitement (booster packs are like a drug to me sometimes)

I'm a lefty- an odd and curious detail to be spattering but really, It only be fair ye know when we draw swords, all yer swashbuckling and training 'gainst rightyers goes out thar window. Ye be helpless friend.

Hello! New privateer hailing from the great state of Iowa.

I've built a small fleet of American firepower to bring about Pirate pain....

I am currently not interested in collecting as much as playing. So I see myself sticking with my Americans for the foreseeable future.
