PostSubject: Whats a ship without a NAME why its just some ship   Fri May 25, 2007 4:02 am

Oi to you lot who've decided to delve into my mad writings once more,

I just thought I'd open the floor for the considerations of what if possible us individuals would be nameing our ships with the hopefully soon advent of beta nad the real game,

I hopeing to take up the seas as "Galant Spirit" centering on the sort of vessel to inspire hope amongst allies but to strike a since of fear to the enemies.

It would be called "Tempus Fugit" which means Time Flies. I was also considering "Autumn Daydreams" but it didn't sound very piratey.

Staying with the “V” vernacular, and the tradition of naming ships after women. I have settled on “Valkyrie”, the maidens of Norse mythology. The Valkyries, minor female deities, served Odin. The purpose was to choose the most heroic of those who had died in battle, and to carry them off to Valhalla. To bad we will not have figueheads for our ships. The idea of a horned helmeted, bare breasted, spear carrying Valkyrie at the bow of my ship, is most appealing.

Oh, that reminds me. When I want sailing off Maine, I came across this tidbit of sailor lore. The idea of the female figurehead, especially one exposing a breast or two, comes from the old sailors belief (superstition) that it somehow had a calming effect of the waves. Possible the idea that Neptune or any of the male sea gods/dieties would be pleased at the view and not wish to disturb the waves.

I never really put any thought into what I would name my ship should I get one. Cause in all reality its not going to be easy to gain a ship.

But if I get the oppurtunity to get one it would be named "Tempus Fugit" which means Time Flies. I was also considering "Autumn Daydreams" but it didn't sound very piratey.

You do know everyone starts out wit a ship in the game right? its a small ship but a ship nonetheless so you will definately have something to name Very Happy

Um i dont know i probably go with something simple like "The Raven" or something else similar.

Sweet. I was afraid we were going to have to start out with the raft, sail up alongside some other ship and draw a pistol. And I don't think those odds are very good...

That would be kind of fun though, arriving on the raft and fighting the crew for the ship. But alba_cross is right, the odds would be against us....

If you go onto the PotBS website you will see a note for viewing ships, "Ship Guide". Select that and a new window appears that has two lists. The one on the left is the type of ship. By selecting a ship type, the book on the right opens up and gives the stats for that ship. One of which is Level. So if the Level is 1 then you can select that ship upon entering the game. Also I understand that each player will be able to have two character per server and each character will be able to have up to 3 ships at their level or lower.

If in fact that is the case then I chose Valkyrie, Varlet, and Vandal.

Level 1 : Raft – Yacht – Periauger – Medway long boat – Small Chasse-Maree – Gunboat – Hiorten – Medium Schooner (which is interesting since the Small Schooner is level 2)

Nice name criniit, my family had a boat like 7 years ago it was named "Wet Willy" Laughing i thought that was a cool name at the time but Serenity is much better.

You know I was thinking about this, and I think I will name her Shalott. Like the depressing poem.

I think for my raft, I'll call it the Calamari Devil. It's an inside joke.

But after I get a decent sized ship, I'll name it the Flying Dutchman. Sure, it's a bit generic, but anyone who's seen PotC will know that it's the most badass ship in the Caribbean.
