That was fast... forum camper :p

Hmmm I would have thought Mostly Harmless was at the bottom (I realize in your list it's near the top but you have the list inverted! ;) )

Thanks,

There is a thread with lists of spawnable names here. It's complied from player submissions, and therefore probably not complete, but is pretty extensive.

...It should be in my opinion. I'd rather be a Sailor than Mostly Harmless.

It used to be, if I remember properly, before the Ringers added Sailors to the list awhile back.

It is, fortunately, based on what you ARE, rather than what you would rather be. And as Thoren said below, "Mostly Harmless" is more dangerous than "Completely Harmless."

So what does being less harmless than Mostly Harmless imply for Sailors?

I take it then that Sailors = Completely Harmless?

While I'm asking questions, I saw a great thread where someone asked "why anyone would play this game" and got a bunch of very articulate and insightful responses. I am looking for that link (so that I can forward it to people) but am having no luck finding that thread again. Anybody know which thread I'm referring to and can provide me the link?

Thanks,

I think the idea is that if all ye do is sailing, yer not piratin'. whereas if yer a piratin', then the least level of threat ye might represent as a pirate be "mostly harmless"

My thought is that Sailors is reserved for those who do not have much PvP experience yet. But this could be wrong.

What about the list of weights and volumes of various commods, and the corresponding capacities of ships and stalls?

Follow-up question... isn't that a good thread to get stickied (perhaps with a sub-label?)?

There is already a thread about the greatness of the game. It is about a young pirate named Lukealex, it is stickied here.
