Hello everybody! I am planning to start an AMRCA towards the Great Alliance States, starting with the pretext of a ship blocked in the ice in the Northern Seas and so moving South by land looking for survivors. I wouldn't like to find any striking geographical information from eventual survivors or ship-logs, but I think that the best story would be looking for lost explorers.

The problem is… what do you think it will be better for BoBS, a lost ship that has (possibly) circumnavigated the World, the Western continent or that was simply looking for a North-West passage towards the archipelago? Let me know what do you think!

I like the last idea most, both from an in-universe and a pragmatic point of view. Have a look at the BotBS world map:

Spoiler
World Map

 

Finding a sea route to the western ocean(s) without circumnavigating the whole world or the southern lands would be a big deal, so some "North-West Passage" could be some sort of holy grail among sailors.

Good point, I agree with you! Probably I’ll go for that and let my character discover, as the story goes on, if the ship was looking for it or had found it and was on the way back home

Cool! Great to see the Great Alliance State being fleshed out further. The North-West passage hypothesis sounds like a good starting point for your adventure. I recently watched 'The Terror', so I'm fully in the mood for icy sea adventures now :grin:.

It was exactly my inspiration (not the series itself, but an article about the story)! :pir-classic: I've planned it for quite a while, but finally I managed to build a ship stuck in ice (+an intact ship, that I built long time ago and never published).

I think a Mary-Celeste idea would be kinda cool…

Nice idea! A ship without crew and no good reason for their disappearance… Sooner or later I should bring it in BoBS!

This is constantly itching at the back of my mind, and slowly driving me (even more) crazy. When I have the time to build I have no idea what to do, and whn inspiration strucks me, I lack the time... :pir-cry_sad:

Hey all,

I have a few questions about the Account Summary. If someone has time and knowledge about it, I would appreciate to clarify these things via PM.

Your faction leadership would be a good place to start. If they cannot help you or if your question is of a technical nature I can assist you.

Hooray, finally took some decent pictures of the Gotheborg.

Posted in the MOC subforum of the Pirate forum because it is a replica, so I guess it fits better there

Anyone with an adventure that needs GM input, please take a look at this post, where I'd like you to post a link to your adventure with a few comments on where you are and what you need input on.

Additionally, you no longer need to use the aMRCA form. (I will update the rules over the coming days)

Question ... Do we have a place somewhere to capture everyone's sig fig and back story? Other than the intro threads? Something that could be a reference guide to others that wish to do collaborative works?

Something like

Sig fig photo

Sig fig name 

Faction / home settlement

military rank if any

Trade company affiliation if any

Ship(s) name(s) if a captain

Back story (intro story .... can always be edited as the character evolves)

Current story (short bio of current events ... Could be a running link list to story builds)

The reason I ask is after doing a couple colab stories it seems I'm doing a lot of back logging trying to keep the stories jiving with the characters background.
