    The Pirate Conspiracy

    The Pirate Conspiracy is an ongoing event series organized by the Catskills roleplaying community. An incident on June 21st 2008 kicked off a new storyline, bringing a lot of fun and interaction for the involved guilds and players. These events will introduce the background of the conflict between unsavory folk (pirates) and the honorable society of Britannia. All Catskills roleplaying guilds are invited to join in!

    Background Information:

    The United Pirates have been haunting the streets of New Haven, demanding a "security tax" from honest citizens. They claimed that New Haven now was under pirate law, and that their presence would ensure the safety for both inhabitants and visitors. Anyone who refused to pay the security tax to the amount of 500 gold coins, was asked to leave New Haven or was attacked and chased through the streets. Honorable and brave fighters have tried to resist, and sometimes even won battles against the pirate intruders. But still the evil folk was present in this once peaceful town, prowling its streets and threatening passers-by.

    During a guild meeting in the Lion's Den in New Haven on June 21st 2008, the treasurer of the Gentle Rest Inn guild named Hefeustus was lured under false pretenses to a room next door. There he was knocked out and kidnapped by an infiltrator, while Hawkeye Pike, Captain of the United Pirates guild, was seen blocking the door with chests, thus enabling the escape of the traitor. Nobody knows the real reason for this hostile action. The Torm's Fury and Purple Guardians of Honor guilds declared all pirate folk outlaws in New Haven, who would be punished and chased away from this town without warning. Ever since, heavy war has been raging in the streets of New Haven. Hefeustus has been missing ever since. Everyone is advised to be extra careful when entering the town of New Haven.

    Upcoming Event:

    (June 27th, 9 pm EST)Rescheduled to June 29th, 8 pm EST: Due to the current situation in New Haven, the United Pirates will hold an emergency session on June 29th at 8 pm EST. At this meeting, they will discuss about the next steps to be taken against landlubbers, as well as the matters concerning a certain hostage. The location of the meeting place will be communicated to the crew members on the day of the meeting in a secret way.

    The hiding place of a certain hostage has been written down in an encrypted document. This document has been distributed on a series of books. To find out the location, you have to possess all books. These books will be handed out to trustworthy pirates for safekeeping. The first book will be handed out in this meeting. (Note: The book always has to be carried in the backpack by that pirate, and it must not be insured.) It is up to the enemies of the pirates to find means to retrieve this first book.

    Also, the concerning pirate will carry a valuable artifact weapon called "Pirate Slayer". This weapon may be looted from the pirate and belongs to the guild that defeats him.

    Outlook:

    The story will continue with more exciting events during the next weeks. These events will cover roleplaying, adventuring, riddles and fighting (PVP). There will be challenges for each type of player, be it roleplayers or fighters, good or evil, experienced or new players. Every roleplaying guild is invited to participate! The public Rules of Engagement (RoE) are applying to all involved guilds (they basically prohibit looting and player griefing).
