    Hey hey fellow Catskillians!

    I've received this message from Hawkeye Pike of the United Pirates:
    <blockquote>Lock up yer treasure! Lock up yer wives! Lock all yer doors or ye won't stay alive! The biggest and oldest pirate crew on Catskills is on the loose again, plundering towns and ambushing tavelers and adventurers. The local authorities are helpless and have to rely on brave citizens to face the threat.

    Detailed information about the United Pirates, their goals, and where to find them, can be gleaned on our website at:
    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.aschulze.net/ultima/pirates/>http://www.aschulze.net/ultima/pirates/</a>

    Remark:
    We encourage all roleplaying and non-roleplaying guilds to more interaction. This can cover common events, alliances and guild wars. We have a few rules for pvp (no mindless killing on sight, no looting), and our motto is: Keep it simple and make it fun!

    We will celebrate our return by holding a FIGHTING CONTEST at our hideout, the Jolly Roger Inn in Trammel (see map for directions). On Saturday, April 12th at 5 pm EST (11 pm CET/European time), all pirates and pirate aspirants are invited to come to the Jolly Roger Inn to prove their combat abilities! We'll be holding a fighting contest to declare the most dreaded pirate. Our hideout will be re-furnished specifically for the event. The rules of the Pub Brawl are:

    Ye cannot use own equipment! Armor and weapons of GM quality will be supplied, to make sure that not the pirate with the best artifacts wins.
    Jewelry, talismans and other items improving yer fighting abilities are not allowed!
    Ye can bring and use any kind and number of potions, and as many bandages and reagents as ye like.
    No mounts! Hooves will ruin the floor boards of the inn! Fights will be held on foot.
    Each participant will duel each! Last man (or woman) standig wins the fight. When we're through, the three best fighters will face each other in duels.
    Any kind of fighting tactics are allowed! Whatever abilities yer skills offer may be used in the duel. However, ye may not leave the fighting area until the winner of a duel is determined.
    The prize: Each contestant should pay an amount of at least 10,000 gold pieces into the combat cash box. (If someone can't afford that much, he can pay less. More rich pirates will compensate the rest.) The winner takes it all!
    The winner of the contest will be granted the title "Swashbuckler", until he is beat by another pirate in the next Pub Brawl event.
    If ye are late, ye still may join into our contest, as long as we haven't finished the first round (each fights each).</blockquote>

    Sounds like it may be a Jolly good time.

    Well, currently none in our crew does use reagents or any magery skills. However, building communities is kind of hard these days, and the more restrictive rules you have, the less people will join and participate. I know it is a stretch, but you could imagine a mage being some kind of "gunner". :)
