    I got this idea when i was looking at some empty bulletine boards at an inn today i m not sure we are enough people left intrested in sea battles for this to work but no harm in trowing an idea out there i guess

    After the global chat came out no one is using these boards any more so maybe they could get a diffrent purpose

    The idea is that Merchants may choose an assignment from these boards
    Pretty simple just bring cargo in your ship cargo hold and rendezvous with another ship at location XXX XXX XX time to do so 30min and get your reward

    The Pirate part of this is that once someone accept an assignment there will be a time when the assignment was accepted and how much time is left before the quest expire and the location for everyone to see

    So a not so nice character lurking around the board may send word to his pirate buddies or may try to ambush the merchant by himself and steal the cargo and turn it in to some shady broker in bucs den and get a reward

    I know some people would abuse this running 2 clients to get the pirate reward and i m not sure making stuff abuse proof is always the best way to go but maybe put a limit how many times u can raid a person/account and a limit how many times u can do the merchant part a week would keep the abuse down

    Sry if u have problem reading my english i know it is far from perfect but i m still learning thx to uo
