The Dastards Crew Forum Reply to this Post

This is a topic for members of The Dastards.

If you are a member of The Dastards, or interested in joining our crew, then post a message here. You can post about yourself, what you think about puzzle pirates, etc. We also want to use this forum to arrange times for looting and pillaging.

The Dastards is a crew started by myself (Duncan) and Meghaford (Ursela). Although Ursela is the formal captain, we're pretty much co-captains of the crew. Everyone who wants to be a team player is free to join The Dastards as a Pirate. The Dastards have one of the best division of loot around --- even the developers think so!

We have just updated the Crew Public and private statement. The big news is on how we will determine who gets promoted... the following comes right from our new private statement:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Promotions: We have decided that being promoted will be determined by a few things.
First is participation in looting, pillaging and plundering.
Secondly, We'd like to see you participating in the forums, which we check every day. We'll be starting a Dastards Topic, but more importantly we want ye all to give feedback to the Developers about bugs, improvements, complaints, etc. about Puzzle Pirates. We are enjoying this wonderful game for free, so helping out the Developers is the least we can do. (Make sure you use your character name so I know who ye are)
Thirdly, just have fun!
-Cap'n Ursela
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Har, mateys... We hope to see ye on the high seas, and welcome ye one and all to the Dastards. Feel free to send me an IM if you want to join, if I'm on my computer I'll sign on and help ye out.

Morty
Gertrude
Gilbert
Gragg
Kellog
Molly
Sam
Shade
Wilkes

congradulations all!!

Also, congradulations to our newest Officer, Verna! We talked it over and decided to offer her the promotion. Everyone give her a hearty congradulations!

If any of ye other land lubbers want to become an officer of the Dastards, see our private statement, or one of the above posts!

Another item of news, we are thinking about purchasing a Large Sloop for the Crew, any thoughts on this matter?

Also, Pirate Gragg suggested an intercrew Sword competition to determine the best swordsman in our crew! I would gladly put up a price for the winner given we get a decent turn out. Let me know what you think?

I certainly be up for an intacrew sword challenge. Aside from finding out who amongst us is best, it would be a more pleasurable was to practice than just fighting NPP's.

Swordfighting Tourney Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Some ideas about the tourney.

We'll probably have a single or double elimination with best 2 out of 3 for each match. We are thinking of having a prize, perhaps somewhere in the hundreds of PoE range. We also might extend the tourney to outsiders, but for non-Dastards, we'll charge a nominal entrance fee. :) Let me know what y'all think.

That sounds pretty sweet...i like the idea of anybody joins but those who arn't in crew have to pay...it's like another perk for being in our crew. We should also think of some crewy things to do like a drinking fest or something like that.

Reply with Quote

Har, good to hear from you two... I be looking forward to hearing from the rest of the crew as well, so get the word out to everyone you see.


well I am also announcing that we will be trying to have the Swordfighting competition this comming week (Nov 18-23). Each round will consist of 3 games where the winner wins 2. It will be double elimination which means you have to be defeated twice before you're out. Members of The Dastards crew can enter for free (I will put up $25 for each of you) and anyone from out-Crew can enter for the $25 fee. The total of those will be the pot given to the victor... as well as everlasting fame... (at least until we have another tournament!

If you are interested in participating, please e-mail me (with the e-mail best to contact you with) with the following information:

1. That you are interested in the Tournament (or not)
2. What time zone you are in (and if you know the difference from EST)
3. Times you're usually online
4. Times when you absolutely cannot be online
5. Times you can be online for a quick fight

E-mail me at: TheDastards@rjmlb.com

I was going to suggest that you have the tourney at certain set times, rather than trying to co-ordinate things. I would propose the 'scheduled play times' as an interesting start, but it's really down to you as Pirate Queen o the show.

Sunday 5-7pm
Monday 1-3pm
Tuesday 1-3pm, 5-7pm
Weds 1-3pm
Thurs 1-3pm, 5-7pm
Friday 1-3pm

I would like to enter the tournament but am on GMT time so i think it would be a good idea to have the time scheduled.

Ahoy Dastards!

Well the tournament is long overdue, so it's more a general reply to present myself.

I hail out of LA in sunny California (although the last few days HAS brought a bit of rain causing panic here). However I originally hail out of Denmark in the Scandinavian and Viking area of Europe. Im a SysAdmin but annoyingly currently unemployed which is why I've been able to spend quite a few hours pillaging and fencing (11 hours today alone *phew*).

I just landed a couple of days ago here so I still have that fresh fish smell about me...unlike the rest of you Harrrr!!

Arr this be Sparky and I have a bit of the new/fish smell about me. I have been enjoying the game and have had a good deal of time recently since I am currently retired (office shut down everyone layed off). I was a programmer/Dev manager and am looking to unretire. I hail from the great state of CA. I have been looking for bugs but have not found any as of yet but will probebly be playing plenty and hope to help bring this game to the masses so that the sea is swarming with victims....

Whew! What a grand showing by the Dastards! It was great. (Ocho the Octopus thinks so too.)

I guess I missed the part where everyone was telling stuff about themselves. I am a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin and work in their admissions office. I live with my husband (Homullus), who enjoys computer games more than I do, but we play games together when we can (esp. piratey games like Monkey Island). When he's on the 'puter, I watch too much TV and do crafty things like make lamps and etch glass. I also sing in a local choir (gots me a music degree).

Ahoy to y'all-- y'arg!! It's been grand roaming the high seas with ye.

I believe it is Random, as I've often stood talking after a battle only to have them waltz right on back. (ye should have seen the one who stood on Verna... his bony leg sticking through her legs!!! twas an amusing sight.

I have been trying to leave all the different ships at different ports so we can skip around the islands quickly to find them.

Aye, I know! I was there!

It might be worth placing pirates at all the treasure chests and using CrewTalk to communicate thier whereabouts as they move, though... see if we can crack the pattern and then take advantage of it, if there is one. We'll need a half dozen or more people online at once, though (and the hours of GMT I'm pulling of late seem to make my presence rare - I only ever seem to see wildeyedjack (who lives but 50 miles from me) any more).

"It might be worth placing pirates at all the treasure chests and using CrewTalk to communicate thier whereabouts as they move"

To do this you would need 12 at the minimum so that there could be a group of 5 to go round defeating the skellies while the other 7 wait by their chest. This be a slight problem as I have rarely seen 12 members online. (this may be because of the time difference)

Does any one know what the greatest number of skellies in a group is at one time? For this would dictate the number needed, to perform this 'experiment'if it where to go ahead.

Ahoy, ye Dastards. Me name be obvious, if ye bothered ta read the signature.

I was accosted ta join yer fair crew, and I am impressed by the hospitality ye offer.

I'm a bit of a wanderlust meself, so I may not stay as a permanent barnacle in yer sides. Ye'll probably be grateful, harr. Still, I've proven meself keen enough with a blade and a hammer so far to be of some use to ye. Must be a touch of the bilgin' muscle.

I'd be happy to share a piece of me blade with any of ye if ye can find me, but yer welcome to share a friendly drink as well. I'll try not to cheat, but the last time I checked, I wasn't sure how I got the score I looted.

Until we meet in the plastic-lookin' flesh, fare thee well!

Arr! Some of you know who I am already, but if I want promotion (and I do) I'd better be posting on ths forum here!
I'm Esk, from Wales, Ava's little wench and a damn fine swordswoman. I study physics, because i am a glutton for punishment. I've been sailing 4 days now, and don't seem to spend much time sleeping as a result of this damned addictive world.
I'd like to take a go at navigation, which i cannot do as a pirate, and also when i'm online and noone else is, i'd like to be able to hire NPPs and take a ship out. I'm looking to buy a small sloop, it'll be another to add to the Dastards collection.
I'll beat you again Ursela, one day! In the meantime, I'll see all you seafaring types when we next meet ashore on alpha, or aboard one of our fine vessels.
