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!

This page is an archive of the 1719 year. For the year 1720, if you want to join us and further our story, please click here.

The highly professional pirate doctor, with us since May 2011, has been the most active character of 1719, with about 350 posts. She is a complex and well researched character, written by an active, faithful and enthusiastic writer, full of initiative and imagination.

Taking into account that the writer’s mother tongue is not English, even more deserved congratulations!

All content created by members is copyrighted to the members and is their own work. Stealing is wrong and it will entail taking action against you.

First skin "Magdalena" was created by Mimmy of "Red Carpet and Rebellion" and RPG-Underground, sidebar by Dana of RPG Underground, header and first banner by Raven of “Before the Mast”, who created the site on 19 July 2010 and provided all the initial coding.

Further coding and graphic help provided by our cartographers, November and Avalon of "A Nation Divided" and "Legacy of Deceit".

The new skin implemented on Halloween specially for us was created by November, together with the sidebar and banner.

The new skin implemented on Candlemas specially for us was created by our beloved cartographer and Fleet Admiral Moru, as well as the following ones.

Documentation created by Elena and Raven after having extensively researched on the internet, so they obviously share the credits with the original sources. Credits are given to the present and former staff of "Beat to Quarters" and to Fluff of "Age of Intrigue" for their contribution to the resource pages and their kindness in sharing their historical resources with us. The documentation submitted by the other members is duly credited to them. The same for the documentations taken over from resource sites.

The Staff Agreement has been drafted by compiling creatively and adapting to the specific of “Before the Mast” ideas from the staff contracts used by “Ich Dien” and “Absit Omen”, as well as various ideas from the staff guides existing on “RPG Directory”, “RPG Underground” and “Caution”. Many thanks to the staff of these websites and to those who had submitted useful documentation!

The “Character of the Month” coding kindly provided by Lioe of “Beat to Quarters”.

The idea of the player/ character interview within the monthly news chronicle was suggested by Gothic from "Aeterna Roma", and the award buttons were inspired from Synthetic Truth.

Credits for the design of the award buttons we have offered at our one year and a half anniversary - Winterslittlepet of Caution.

Credits for the folder pips goes to ~Bogo-d on Deviantart and Lily Lilac of RPG-D and Bordertown .

Credits for the graphics used on the site go to their respective authors, known or unknown, and nobody who uses a graphic which doesn't belong to him/ her doesn't take any credit for it. A special thanks goes to Angela in this respect, as she helped us when she doesn't even understand English at all.
