We are opening the year 1720

on a new page (on jcink)! Join us to new adventures!


Welcome


It's 1719 in the West Indies. The Caribbean Sea is boiling in the war and there is no quiet place ashore or at sea. Besides the political turmoil which leads the colonies at each other's throats, pirates and privateers are on the prowl. Come spend some time with us BEFORE THE MAST, on any ship you like!

The dark privateer boatswain is a good leader and, at the same time, a well rounded and well researched character, written by an active and faithful writer, full of imagination.

Congratulations and way to go!
