Decide on your roles and play!
Threads of more than two are welcome and encouraged.


1.  Boarded:  Your ship has been boarded, and as captain you've been captured!  Better hope the other captain gives quarter.  Alternatively, it's a nice warm day for a swim.  That plank was made for walking.

2.  Victory:  You've captured another ship!  You knew those extra cannons would come in handy.  And let's hope they've got lots of swag!  Where's the captain? Are you the decent sort, or are you going to rub their face in it for a bit?

3.  Swab the decks:  You're a cabin boy!  It's a good thing you don't mind doing all the dirty work, right?  Anyway, the captain's calling; better see what they want.

4.  Marooned:  For a bit there you'd thought you were in Davy's Jones' grip, but somehow you've washed ashore with the driftwood.  As you stare dazedly up from the surf, you have questions.  Where are you?  And who's that already on the shore?

5.  Buried Treasure:  Sink me! You've really found the mother lode. . . but you're not the only one.  Who gets to take the treasure back to their ship?  Better make sure it's you.

6.  Rum:  Rum, everywhere. 

7.  Swordfight:  It's that person you can't stand!  And they've taken your most valuable possession, that one of a kind thing you just can't live without!  Better get that trinket back before it and your nemesis are gone over the side forever.  Let's hear some swashes buckling.

8.  Mutiny:  The tack is full of maggots and this drinking water may as well have come from the gutter.  There's one person to blame for this, and you're here to make especially sure that they pay for it.  The captain does always seem to take the best treasure before everybody else.

9.  Kidnapping:  Don't they look rather peaceful, innocent even, sleeping so soundly there with their fancy nightclothes and pillows.  Brings a tear to your eye, it does.  Better take them aboard and send for a ransom.

10.  Take a Gamble:  Gotta spend your loot somehow, but it must have been the rum that had you bettin' everything at once!  You've lost to your hornswagglin' shipmate; what did you lose, and what will they make you do now?

11. Under the Sea:  You are now a Mermaid/Merman!  That sailor over there sure looks appealing; let's see if you can lure them in with your charms.  Don't forget that they can't breathe under water!  You do seem to always forget, don't you. . .

12.  The Doldrums:  Can you say cabin fever?  The sails haven't moved in weeks.  You're about seeing if your mates can relieve this awful boredom.

[Kira dared to glance up as the man stepped away, gaze immediately returning to the floor when the captain returned... only to look back up when he spoke. Lift?]

Lift? Um.... Sir? [He was almost afraid to question him but really... what on earth?]

Lift me up. Bridal style, under the arms, over your shoulder... whatever is easiest. [Yes Kira, he's completely serious.]

[Okay he's pretty sure this is possibly the strangest request he'd ever encountered. He was nervous about looking at the man and now he was not only supposed to touch him but pick him up? He just... stared at him for another moment, trying to determine what the least disrespectful way to lift his captain would be. Certainly not over the shoulder, that would be just rude. But... wouldn't bridal style also be somewhat insulting?]

O-okay... [He bent slightly, rubbing his hands on his pants again to make sure there was no more soapy water from scrubbing the decks on his hands, then he stepped closer. A deep nervous breath and he settled his hands firmly on Artemis' hips, lifting the slight man easily against him. He kept his head tilted back to be certain he wasn't going to knock the captain's head against the ceiling.] Did... you need help um... reaching... something, sir?

No, not at all. Just hold that. [He crosses his arms and looks up at the ceiling, scratching a bit of flaking sealant off the beam.] How are you feeling? Tired?

[Kira might have been a small man, not much larger than the captain himself, but that hardly meant he was weak or lacking muscle. Though he didn't have the same bulk as some of the other men he could hold his own and he was inevitably much quicker for it. Not that he could hold Artemis up forever but it would take more than that tire him out.]

Um... no, sir... I'm just fine, thank you.
