Gaming in the Universe of: Pirates of the Caribbean

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearlpirates_of_caribbean
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

There are many RPGs available for the swashbuckler in you.  Atomic Sock Monkey’s Monkey Ninja Pirate Robot: The Role Playing Game, Alderac Entertainment’s 7th Sea, and my personal favorite Pinnacle’s Savage World’s setting Pirates of the Spanish Main are just a few of what’s available when I googled Pirate RPGs.

Pirates of the Spanish Main is actually the game that got me back into role playing after more than twenty years.  My children and I enjoy this game on a regular basis.  In fact my RPG Blog Carnival postfor February was about monsters from the Pirates movies as stated out for PotSM.

Gaming in the PotC universe would involve running into the movie’s characters or actually playing them in your favorite swashbuckling setting.  My own preference for gaming is in playing characters of my own creation.  I do not have a problem in games I’m GMing with running into established characters.  As such I am providing Savage Worlds stats for some of the main characters.  These character stats assume that you are meeting the characters between the events of Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End.

Life Near an Iowa Cornfield

Randomness from the Vulcan Stev Family:

Mrs. VS had one of the drains removed yesterday.  Chemo starts as soon as the second one comes out.  She is NOT looking forward to starting chemo.

PIT #1 had all of her wisdom teeth pulled yesterday.  She was blessed with both her mother’s and father’s crooked wisdom teeth.  She’s taking it better than I did when I had mine pulled.

Nearly finished with with my “Gaming in the PotC Universe” article.  Just to finish statting out the main characters.

Last night’s game night had very few actually show up.  The first night was a rousing success, followed by a basketball game between the two schools that 90% of the players attend, A Valentine’s dance that took over the youth center and then last night when no one showed due to weather.  I have got to get some material for a pick up game in a different setting than the Stargate game.  I’m thinking something in either ML20 or Prime Time adventures.

I was actually open for business the entirety of this week (first time this year).  I had so much Pepsi product that the driver couldn’t load it all on his truck.  Still not sure about being open today.  I’m out of fire wood and it’s well below freezing here.

I’m also in a quandary.  The D&D 2.0 game I joined that plays on Sunday afternoon does so at the same time as the NASCAR race.  Sunday afternoons have traditionally been my time with PITs #2 & 3 as we watch the race together.  Don’t want make my boys feel excluded by dropping NASCAR in favor of D&D with PIT #1
