The pirates are massing, freinds. Massing with only one aim in sight; the systematic destruction of all you hold dear. I'm building an armada to stop them but i need crews for my ships.
The IFS Zephyr is now fully manned, but the  IFS Thunderchild, IFS Hood, IFS Bismarck, IFS Tirpitz, the IFS Titan, the IFS Yamato and the IFS Stark need engineers, loaders and gunners. Who is brave enough to stand against the pirates?
Join me now, for freedom and clear skies!

It's in hte conflict against the air-pirates. Which may well be an RPG. We could use men of your caliber, Trakov. Help us clear the skies.

Any help is gratefully accepted, of course.

Captain Vendigroth,

As my telegramme (which I have courteously included) to the forming Alliance of Privateers states:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I repeat that I will not side with either faction. I simply wish to remain allowed to traverse this Earth as I have for many years, and that attempted sanctions of such movement and business by either Imperial Fleet or Privateer Alliance will be met with unflinching force and resistance.

As long as the Imperial Fleet has no intentions of preventing my free trade and movement, I will continue to maintain extremely cordial relations with the Empire and continue to offer my services in high-speed materiel transport and surveying operations, at my usual price.

just so the first fleet knows... if anyone wants to actually start an RPG (and a few of my pirate brethren say yes.) I'm only going to open a Character thread when I get back (if its not already open by the time io get back) just so we know who everyone is... as I'm no good with starting a story, I'll leave that open for anyone..of crouse if nothing is here when I get back i'll do that too.. ^_^

but lets keep it in one thread

what say you?

I applaud your anti-pirate measures. I would join your fleet, but the SS Invictus is a simple cargo ship, surely making excellent prey for those scoundrels.

Yes, surely they will swarm upon this poor unarmed merchant vessel at the slightest provocation, for it has no defenses.

None at all, really. Not so much as a popgun. Not rapier, nor pistol, nor Chicago Shipyard Industries 37mm Repeating Dual-Barreled Steam-Driven Automatic Cannon, cleverly concealed withing a false pilothouse.

Not so much as one of those, nosir.

For every day's a war down there, when the gauges all read red.
Twelve-hundred pounds of heated steam can kill you mighty dead.
So every man down in the hole has learned to hate so well,
That when you speak to them of fear, their laughter's heard in hell.

One of my new battleships. A relatively quick, heavily-armed ship, designed to chase pirates down to an optimum range, and put a shell through their hulls. Her low profile and slanting bulkheads also reduce the chances of a damaging hit from a pirate ship. This ship can operate well alone as well as in a group.

Anyone want to sign on?

The IP Spider Wasp will be at your disposal. That is, of course, if you can pay the customary fee...

Not only can I pay the fee for your services, but also for your ammunition. I can also offer you a berth on the carrier-ship IFS Sehnsucht.
