OOC: I have been wanting to do this survey since July. Since the Highseas release, the big interest took off in the form of Fishing. But with the introduction of various vessels, the opportunity has alway been there for using Highseas as an RP adventure in SEA Battles, sea Adventures, Sea Trade Routes, etc. I would like to take the time to really find out who all might be interested in having or creating RP fleets or guilds or just wanting to join or play along with those that already have exsisting groups in the highseas. I know there are people that would be interested in playing along in this adventure and have no idea of who all is out there. Below are some of the groups that already have a setup to RP with on the highseas, (shipping Trade Routes, Pirating, Anti-Pirating), but are there others that would like to get in on the action.? Having a group or groups out there on the highseas is alot of fun. Alot of time has already been put into putting together these groups and would like to extend a hand to others that are looking for such groups. There are navy groups, Pirate groups, smugglers, just plain Renegade groups (free marauding fleets), and Trade Shipping Groups (those that transport goods between townships the old fashion way). So what I would like to know is , : 1). do you have a group people can search for and if you do , please list. 2). What do you think of having groups to play an RP role and would you be interested in playing along if offered? 3). Is there really an interest in having more Rp'ing sea-going fleets and would you be interested in particiapting? 4). Do you think its a waste of time to even have such groups and would rather see highseas evolve into more fishing then pirating or generating sea trading. This is just an overview curiousity survey of what people think as far as doing more with the highseas adventure besides fishing. There is so much that can be done with highseas in the way of using the seas during that time period and trying to get a feel of what people really think. I appreciate any comments to this matter as we are in the process of trying to extend whats already out there. ..... Thanks Some of the groups that already play and exsist are: United Sosarin Navy (USN), Crimson Pirates (CP), Skelton Key Shipping,(SKS), Nidaros Trading Company (NTC), and a few others that slips my mind. NOTE: For those that would like to get into one of the pirate groups and do some pirating, The Crimson Pirates are always looking and you can PM me (Pirate Blackfoot) if interested. I also have contacts for some of the others, depending in your interest.
