This is a story for a pirate RPG group The World of Emprovious . Sorry, there isn´t much action in this part, but it is important to elect new captain.
The pirates took Emprovious ship and sail away from Silver Lake. They have to catch the group of Emprovious who stole their treasure. First days on the sea was very good. The wind was advantageous, pirates worked day and night and crossed over the sea long distance from Silver Lake. The ship was smaller than their BluePearl but they realized that it is very easy manageable and very quick ship.
Fourth day after sailing away from Silver Lake the wind turned down. Old Bob, as the oldest man from crew, called a meeting. All pirates came to the circle. Old Bob started to talk: „Guys, first of all I would like to brink to mind our captan Dead Eye Bill who died in the battle as a true pirate. We didn´t have much time in last days to think of him. Please lets have 1 minute of silence on his honour.“ Pirates uncovered their hats and headsquares and there was a silence for a while.
Than Old Bob said: „Old captain is dead, it´s time to elect new captain. Is there someone who would like to be a captain? Or do you want to nominate someone?“ Beau Ben looked at Old Bob „Hey Bob, you are the oldest man from our group and you have a lot of experiences, you shoud be our captain.“ Old Bob smirked „Well, I have enought experiences with sailing and battles, but I´m not sure if I have enought energy to lead this group...“
Than Ugly Joe said: „I think my brother Tom would be great captain.“ Some pirates started to smile „He is too young, he is only 22 and joined us only few months ago...“ Told Bloody Dave. „Yes, I´m young and I´m not a pirate for long time, that´strue Per.“ Said Tom and continued: „But I have a lot of experiences with sailing, navigation and strategy in battles. I grew up on sea, our father has a commercial ship, he transported various stuff on all the islands in this world of emprovious. He used to took me and my brother on his journeys since we were small kids and we learnt from him everything. I was able to navigate small comercial ship when I was 12, when our father died I became a mariner where I was a helmsman. I learnt a lot about strategy in battles here. Now I woul like to use those experiences and lead our group.“ „Nice talk.“ Told Per, one of Johnsons brothers. „OK we can vote.“ Told Old Bob. „Who vote in favor of Tom?“ Ugly Joe, both jonhsons brothers and Old Bob voted for him. When Beau Ben saw that Old Bob votes in favor of Tom, he told: „Well, I´m not 100% sure, but when I see that Old Bob believe in you, I vote for you too Tom.“ „Thank you Ben.“ Said Tom. Than all pirates looked at Bloody Dave. „Hey Dave, if you vote nay, than we have to find another candidate. Old Bob doesn´t want to be the captain and I don´t know if there is someone else who could be a captain. Give him a chance.“ Told Little John. „OK, if you all want him to be a captain, be it. Don't disappoint us Tom.“ Told Bloody Dave. „Congratulation Tom! Now you are our captain!“ Told Old Bob. „Thank you guys! Thanks to everyone! I´m really glad you believe in me and I´ll do my best for our pirate group!“ Told Tom.
„Now we should give a name to this ship.“ Told Old Bob. „I suggest ´Revenge´ because were going to revenge the murder of captain Dead Eye Bill, robbery the treasure and devastation of our ship Blue Pearl.“ Told new captain Tom. „That´s great name“ Told Per and other pirates agreed. Tom went to the captain´s cabin, took a bottle of champagne and 7 glasses. Pirates celebrated new captain and their new ship Revenge. The celebration took only a while because they all had to work again.
