“Before the Mast” is a historical fiction play-by-post forum based roleplaying game set in 1720 in the West Indies. Peace is to be signed soon, and the former enemies will get allied against the common enemy - pirates, looting indiscriminately. Privateers remain in the business only for hunting pirates. Will our pirate crew survive?
Be ye a pirate, a naval officer, a slave or a lady, you will find a place aboard one of our four ships or live on a paradise island.
We also have guides to help you with the time setting, and are more influenced by historical events rather than following them by the history books!
