Yeah, I know, we're gonna have two of these. It's awful. But I promised Pirates, so Pirates we will have. Coincidentally, Pirates and Arcanum have had a long standing battle. Will Arcanum have its revenge on the Pirates? Will Pirates destroy Arcanum once more? None of these questions will be answered. The basic plot line is as follows: You're an eight year old kid, eating dinner with your family in Europe somewhere, celebrating that a ship from the Caribbean is en route to help pay off your debts to Marquis Montalban. Suddenly, the Marquis bursts open the door to tell you that the ships have 'mysteriously' sunk to the bottom of the ocean, so he's now bringing everybody to do hard labour in the Caribbean for him. What a douce. Anyways, there's some sort of thing going on with this gold chain on your neck, and it encourages you to bail and run away from home, where you do odd jobs (chimney sweeping, probably) for 10 years, before signing up with a ship so you can go to the Caribbean and save your family from vile criminals (ohoho, irony). Here are the choices. Each one needs only three votes to win. Nationality to Sign with: English French Dutch Spanish Skill: Fencing Navigation Gunnery Medicine Wit and Charm Era: 1600 (The advent of piracy) 1620 (Some in between stuff) 1640 (More in between stuff, super powerful spain) 1660 (The golden age of buccaneering) 1680 (The twilight years. Not with vampires, like the end of the pirating era) Our Pirate's name for this adventure will be Arcanum, meaning people will refer to him as Mr. Arcanum, Captain Arcanum, Duke Arcanum, etc., unless there are objections.
