</span><sub>"</sub><sub>There is no honor in remaining with the losing side, leaving it for the winning side…that's just good business.</sub><sub>" - Sao Feng</sub><sub>
</span></font></span></font><sub>Write your own legend!</span></span></span></span></font></span>
</span></font></span>Amongst the dilapidated walkways of the shanty town of Singapore, a battle rages between soldiers of the East India Company, and pirates under the command of the pirate lord Sao Feng.</span></span></font></span></font></span>
</span></span></font></span></font></span>Lord Cutler Beckett's soldiers are well armed with musket and rapier, and their disciplined ranks give them an edge over any lone pirate. But Sao Feng's own men are fierce and without fear, and up close they prove extremely dangerous.</span></span></font></span></font></span>
</span></span></font></span></font></span>Clearly only one side might prevail, but who?</span></span></font></span></font></span>
</sub><sub>How to Play</span></span></font></span>
</span></font></span>Players may choose to participate either as East India Co. soldiers, or as Sao Feng's pirates. Players may work independently, or together when attacking enemies. Posts will earn renown whether they involve combat or not. Players may attack enemy players at any point, and the GM will roll the dice to determine the outcome of each encounter. For the sake of a fun game, hopefully players might join each team in even numbers...</span></span></font></span></font></span>
</span></font></span></font></span>Each post should take the following form:</span></font></span></font></span>
</span></font></span></font></span></span></span></sub></span><blockquote webkit-indent-blockquote="webkit-indent-blockquote" style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 40px; border-top-style: n&#111;ne; border-right-style: n&#111;ne; border-bottom-style: n&#111;ne; border-left-style: n&#111;ne; border-width: initial; border-color: initial; padding-top: 0px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 0px; "><sub>Name</span></span></font></span></font></span></span></span></sub></span><sub>Renown 0 Infamy/Heroism 0</span></font></span></font></span></span></span></sub></span><sub>
</span></font></span></font></span></span></span></sub></span><sub>Post content.</span></span></font></span></span></sub></span></blockquote><sub>
</span></font></span></font></span>As players earn renown, their attacks become more power, because all damage is calcuated as the result of d6 dice rolls, plus their number of renown points. Players also become more resistant to damage, as their saving throws are calculated the same way.</span></span></font></span></font></span>
</span></span></font></span></font></span>As players progress through the ranks, they also gain the use of single-shot weapons. Although they can be used only once, they can result in double or triple damage to the enemy, and can be a quick way to remove a rival from the game.</span></span></font></span></font></span>
</span></font></span></font></span>Level 1 (0-9 Renown)</span></font></span></font></span>
</span></font></span></font></span>East India Co.:Rapier sword 1d6+R damage (unlimited use!)</span></span></font></span></font></span>Sao Feng Pirate:Dao sword 1d6+R damage (unlimited use!)</span></span></font></span></font></span>

Regarding Renown and Infamy</span></font></span>
</span>All new players will start out with 0 points of Renown and Infamy in this game</span>.</span></span>
</span></span><ul style="list-style-: circle; "> Points of Renown and Infamy can be won by players through posting. Certain types of post win more points than others, but all are judged fairly and to a set standard.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span> Conflicts between player characters are allowed (and encouraged!) and will also be judged by the GamesMaster.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span> Any renown won during this game may be carried into subsequent PotC games!</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span>[/list]</span></span></span></span></span></span></span>
</span>Player vs Player Combat</span></font></span>
</span></font></span>Unlike other RPGs, players in this game may fight each other without worrying about normal thread constraints. If you wish to fight against a rival player, please state this clearly in your posts. Using your renown, and the renown of your opponent, plus random dice rolls, the outcome of your combat will be dedcided. Any damage will be taken from your hitpoints, which are equal to your plaza rank. If any player's hitpoints drop below zero, they are considered out of the game.</span></font></span>This system will be honed and developed during the coming months. I call this system "PVPRPG". This relies on the renown system developed by Naith Liathant and others.</span></font></span></span></span></span>

</span>- Include your name and renown score with each post.</span>- In regard to player vs player combat, always await the GamesMaster's ruling.</span></span>- Questions may be posed to the GamesMaster in the Dol Amroth Q&amp;A thread</span>http://www.lotrplaza.com/forum/forum_images/bullet.png (http://www.lotrplaza.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=236181&amp;PID=7145413#7145413)</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span>

Ling Dao
Sao Feng Pirate

Lord Cutler Beckett and his East India Trading Company men were well armed and well trained. But were they well prepared? Did they understand the very ground they stood on? The air they breathed ... did they know it at all? Could they perceive well the depths of what they now faced so brazenly?


Ling Dao could see so many falling in the smoke and fury of the East India Trading Companie's dirty muskets (well actually they were strikingly clean in comparison to the rest of the village all around). He knew he would need to get close somehow. So like a shark, Ling Dao dove into the putrid water now mingled with blood among itsmany other pollutants. The flaming village all around left suchironicallybeautiful patterns in the ripples of the water as Ling, like a shark withiyd razor-fin blade (dao)that struck more than fear into his enemies prepared for the right moment.

Timing was everything. But time was also of the essence.

East India CoRenown: 0Infamy/Heroism:0
Well armed, well fed, well trained, well paid and very well dressed. Jeremy could not see why there were even bothering to flush out this rats nest of smells poorly fed and, worse, poorly dressed pirates. Jeremy felt confident and also felt the lure of a good meal after this job was done. Maybe he could find somewhere clean on shore where even more could be had.
He laid a hand on the rapier at his side, it had admittedly been seldom used since he had joined up with Lord Cutler Beckett but it was still sharp and all those years of fencing at Eton had instilled in Jeremy a confidence in his ability to beat most opponents. He sniffed the air and bent over coughing making a mental not not to breathe too deeply. Other members of the company were forming up to attack this ramshackle "town". He smiled confidently and drew the rapier at last.

Zayi Anjui
Sao Feng Pirate
Renown: 0
Infamy / Herosim: 0

Zayi watched as one of her compatriots slipped into the waters like a fish, his figure becoming a blur, then a shadow,a and now only a form to be imagined. She wished him well, but would remain on land for now, her little feet hurrying across the boardwalk and navigating the less-than-stable boards with the sureness of an expert. Zayi was small but deeply vicious; very prone to biting. Her dark hair lashed about her face as she bent to check that her little assortment of knives was available. It wasn't a wonderful collection, but it would slice open the heart of an East India rat. They were so sure of themselves, so confident in their sublimity. She smiled at the though of sending them to the foundations of the sea and found a little corner to sneak into. They would be ready when the next wave arrived.

James Campbell
East India Co

Renown: 0
Infamy/ Heroism: 0

James now wearing the proper clothing as one of the employed soldiers of East India Trading Company now scanned the shadowed surrounds of Singapore. His blue eyes now raked across inhabitants of this watery, smelly city as his left hand gripped the steel pommel of his rapier still sheathed. Even though he'd been in the service to now Lord Cutler Beckett for five years having trained for a year at Eton for some swordplay. The 27 year old had managed to pass its course with a fair amount of skill and zeal. Now he'd quickly formed into ranks beside another soldier(Jeremy) as they now scoured for those pirates led by the infamous Zao Feng!

The pirates could not hope to match the skill of the soldiers who had the best training, equipment, and fought for their great nation such as Britain! So did he, James choose to speak his baritone voice filled somber tones, " Let's find these Pirates and put an end to their miserable lives for causing so much trouble for England to send its forces to this forsaken and dreary excuse for a town, eh?!" The 27-year old soldier now unsheathed his rapier with his right hand and angled its sharp thin blade toward the enemy surely hiding within the numerous buildings as the various companies began to form up to take the city!

As the flash of flintlocks and the cries of battle spread through the waterways of Shanghai, the crafty pirate Ling Dao slipped into the inky blackness, into the cold safety of the canals.

The Eton graduate bent double, racked with coughing as his lungs filled with the foul stench of the pirate city. No doubt he wished he was back in Port Royal, where the air was infinitely sweeter. But there were pirates to kill, and he drew his rapier in anticipation of the action to come.

The small pirate slipped through the shadows like a wraith, fingering her knives in readiness of the violence which approached.

Dressed proudly in his blue greatcoat and tri-corner hat, James Campbell joined the ranks of East India Company soldiers and and unsheathed his finely honed rapier. He was eager to strike a blow against those who would flaunt the rules of the seas, and oppose the control of the Company.

Ming Lo Pan
Sao Feng Pirate
Renown: 0 Infamy / Heroism: 0

Ming Lo Pan hid among the walkways listening to the sound of booted feet as the militia men assaulted the docklands. He squinted through shadow at the men in their coats, with their rifles and cutlasses and he sneered with malice. Sao Feng would act swiftly, decisively and without mercy. These villains would all die bloody and before he was slain, their leader would have his tongue cut out and nailed to his own forehead. Ming loved that. Maybe he could cut the tongue out himself and force the commander of these miscreant scum to swallow it and choke on it until he was very dead. That would be fun too.

Moving from post to post, and keeping in the shadow of the buildings, Lo Pan closed in on the enemy forces, his blades ready. Ming liked to get up close and personal. Ming was an assassin. An assassin who was somewhat experienced in the act of severing tongues, and knew the pain of it on both sides, his own tongue having been severed many years ago. Loose lips would sink ships and Lo Pan had paid the price for his own. Now his loyalty was unquestioned, and the depths of his evil unrivalled. He liked to let his sabres do the speaking.

East Indian Trading Co.
Renown: 0 || Infamy/Heroism: 0

The blasts from the cannon moved like thunder across the fiery sky as the ships from both sides traded shots. The East Indian Trading Co. had stormed the harbor but Sao Feng was ready and had intercepted them before they could get within gun range of the harbor city of Singapore. A wave of long boats were dispatched and were now within the walls, docks and piers. A group of men on one boat in particular had skirted farther south in search of a quieter entrance into fray.

Garret Smith was his name and with him rowed four other man, some more ready then others for what lay ahead. "There!" Smith whispered. "Between those two fishing boats. That'll make a fine spot." They turned gently and steered between the hulls of two worn out Junks. One of the men had been hold onto the side of small boat and yelped as his hand was pinched between boats. "You idiot man," cursed another. "You mean to give us away before we even make land. We'll be floaters before you know it!" Smith hushed the men and grabbed a large net that was hanging over the side of the larger vessel. "Up you go lads. No time for talking. These pirate dogs deserve what they got coming."

Garret and the others quickly climbed aboard the deserted ship. With their swords drawn the men skirted down the gang plank and quickly disappeared into the shadows of the market area.
