    Since I post mostly from phone, I prefer to use "bold" for my speech and "italic" for whispers or thoughts.

    Okay! We have our IC linked in the first post. Please feel free to use your first posts to do a little bit of poking around the city, establishing your character, elaborating on an interaction or whatever else you see fit before hopping on the ship and we get rolling in earnest.

    I'd like to apologize in advance for the showboating my character will be doing. It's all part of building the legend!

    Hey guys, for future reference please include what language you are communicating in. The crew is poly-lingual and it might be important as to who can understand you. I'm going to go ahead an assume everything to this point has been in Spanish since that's the language the whole party shares. Working on an IC now.

    Did I apologize for showboating yet? I'm so sorry, I really am! (But I'm also enjoying it.)

    I guess what's easiest to do is to assume we are all speaking in Spanish unless mentioned otherwise? I for one know I'll perpetually forget to specify that otherwise

    That makes sense to me. If you're cool with that, BBQC, can you tell us who (among the NPCs that get screen time) doesn't seem to know Spanish? I think it would save some posting time later.

    Well, Ubirajara always speak in Tupi with his snake and he was speaking to Sophie in Portuguese before, but when people switched to Spanish he probably did the same.

    So far it would seem that Piet, the Dutchman and Master Gunner, is the only one who does not speak Spanish. The crew seems to be an absolute mish-mash of peoples. Out of about thirty people it would seem that most maritime European nations are represented at least once and there are several natives mixed in as well.

    Double post but, I just caught up on the IC... I'm perfectly happy to allow character interactions to continue if people are enjoying themselves. The next thing I had planned was a general introduction to the ship, her crew, and the assignment of a few bits of light duty (skill checks with narrative instruction on how the Vensinda sails) to lay some ground work for things that might come up later.

    Introductions to our duties seems interesting as is being introduced to the crew proper. I believe we'll have plenty of time to RP during the game, so dont worry interrupting our chit-chat with the captain or his officers calling our attention to stay quiet for that.

    Sorry to hear that Dimers! But we need all hands on deck, so get well soon!

    I'm fine if BBQC (can we call you that?) wants to move to the next planned story beat. They'll be plenty of time for RP as we go.

    Hah, sailor jokes.

    BBQC is comfortingly close to BBEG, so feel free I have little preference for what I'm called. That name came from the fact that I was literally eating barbecue chips when I made the account.

    And I'll be busy the next couple days. Not that I'm complaining! It's all fun stuff. Tomorrow is my 2nd-ed game day ... the campaign has been running since the early 80s, I believe, though I only joined in a few years ago.

    Sorry folks, I was planning an IC post tonight or tomorrow, but I came home to a borked router. It would seem that it caught a stray bolt of lightning while I was at work. I've got a new one en route but it's going to be a few days.
