Treasure. Rumours of it abound. Stories of maps and long forgotten caches of hidden pirate gold. However there is one tale that is more well known than all the others throughout the Caribbean. A legendary Mayan treasure known as The Eye of Kukulcan. What the eye is exactly is unknown. Some tales say it may be some sort of gemstone while others tell of a great golden orb. But no matter the variations from tale to tale, one thing remains constant. All who venture after The Eye are doomed to fall to its curse.

The year is 1715. At this point in time, the Dutch are at war with the Spanish, though a cease fire is currently in effect, and the English are at war with the French. The Caribbean has become a prime trading hub and the settlements there thrive despite the constant threat from the pirates which roam the ocean.
You, for whatever reason, are making the crossing from England to Port Royal. You are traveling aboard The Flourish, an English trade galleon captained by David West.
I would ask that the characters are people travelling to the Caribbean. You may be an officer on board The Flourish, but it would not be highly recommended. You may also choose to be a regular member of it's crew. I would also ask that we have no more than 2 stowaways on board the Flourish.
Now while I prefer that you do not start this RP as a pirate, I will accept a couple of characters as pirates in the beginning. No more than four based on the number of characters. If it is your intention to start as a pirate, please PM me your sheet for approval before posting. Approved pirate characters will receive a PM from me with more information about the RP itself. I would like to mention that all characters will receive this information relatively early in the RP. Until such time as this information is revealed in the RP, I ask that you do not discuss it with the non pirate characters.
And now, here is the sheet;
Age: min 18/max40(I may, based on the sheet, allow one exception to the minimum age rule)
Description: Pictures and/or text descriptions are fine. Illustrations are allowed. Nothing cartoony or pictures of dolls. Please no pics of Johnny Depp or Orlando Bloom. (footnote: Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom are fine, as long it is not as their characters from the POTC movies)
Nationality: Anything European other than French(Pirate characters may choose any nationality)
Position on crew/profession: Pirate characters leave this blank, unless you are going for something minor like cook.
Weapons: Keep it in the period. Remember this takes place in 1715. So no Uzis.
Bio: Please include your reason for making the crossing. You may reveal your bio throughout the RP if you choose as I prefer to take the “show don't tell” attitude with characters. If you opt to reveal as you go, please remain consistent with your character.
