Alright lads, it's time to set sail aboard the Dreadnought. Below you'll find the typical rank-and-file and a little description of each. For one-person roles, I'll cross the title off the list as those roles are filled.

Captain - The Captain has absolute control only in a battle. In everyday life, Captains do not have much more rights than any other crewmember. Even sail courses are determined by voting.

First Mate - Ranks just below the Captain. Would take charge of the ship, should the Captain no longer be able to perform his duties.

Sailing Master - In charge of navigation and sailing. In-general, the most well educated person aboard the ship aside from the medical staff, as charts in those days required much math and navigational skills, as well as a high degree of ingenuity because charts in those days were often inaccurate or nonexistent.

Gunner - Leader of small-man groups that armed the artillery. Usually aimed the cannons themselves. A difficult position to man, at least on a pirate ship rather than the Queen's armada, because pirate rarely wanted to destroy the ships - but rather, disable them for plundering.

Powder Monkeys - Young men, aged usually 12 or 13, in charge of the most dangerous position on the ship. Assisted gun crews in loading, cleaning, and firing the artillery.

Boatswain - Junior officer that supervises all day-to-day activities aboard the ship, with duties ranging from anchoring, to issuing orders to cleaning staff, to obtaining naval provisions. Reports directly to the Captain or First Mate.

Surgeon - Not typical of a pirate ship, but not all that terribly uncommon for crews to kidnap and force a surgeon to provide them services. Often worked with the barest of tools, and none of them very sanitary. In lieu of a surgeon, a carpenter on the crew would often perform amputations when a crew member's limb became obsolete.

Cooks - idk what you want me to say about this one. they make food.

As tempting as gunner is, I'm leaning towards playing a totally innocent surgeon.

I love the thought of having a good surgeon being kidnapped by a bunch of pirates and getting caught up in a whole bunch of eldritch that he did NOT not-sign-up for

I think I'm gonna start with focusing on a powder monkey and maybe down the road I'll take a different perspective. How much info would you like about our characters posted here? Any at all or the classic learn as we go?

Okay great, I'll keep it mysterious then. I'm very excited for this to take off, or set sails I suppose ;0

Also just to be clear, this story is not pirate related correct? Because the interest check seemed to be about normal sailors but then in descriptions you mentioned pirates. I want to know how scruffy my character should be.
