Welcome to Beat to Quarters, a Play-by-Post Text Roleplay set in 1741. It's the Age of Sail, and also the Age of Piracy here in the West Indies. Will you fight for King and Country and uphold the law here at the edge of colonial civilization? Or will you pillage and plunder to your black heart's content? The wind's a-blowin' and the sea awaits, so prepare for adventure...
Madre de Dios, a Spanish galleon loaded with gold, is on her way back to Europe with her convoy. But an ambush lies in wait for her in the Inaguas – the Sea Hound is planning a bold assault on the larger ship, her pirate crew willing to risk it all for gold and glory. But Sea Hound is both predator and prey, as the HMS Steadfast closes in for another encounter with her quarry. The deadly showdown between the three forces is fast approaching...
After "Beat to Quarters" closed, "Before the Mast" is the site leading the stories in the West Indies... but in 1720. Active since August 2010.

Okay so... I'm going away for 3 Weeks to visit a friend in AZ. I leave tomorrow (Fri, Nov 12) and won't be getting back until Sun Dec 5. HOWEVER... I will have my laptop, as I work from online, and my friend has a physical job he needs to go to. I'll probably have plenty of alone time to come on and posts, though I may not hang around and chat... and I'm not sure how much alone time I'll have. :(
Also, from tomorrow (Fri) to Mon, my friend has off and we will be spending most of that time together, as a second friend is coming down but leaving Sun. So I won't be on. I should be back on Tues, but I'm not sure. So, I just wanted to let you guys know that I won't actually be ABSENT completely, but I will probably be slow and won't be able to get on as much as I'd like.
My characters are CHIARA and ATTACKING HAWK.
