It is more me being in the middle of a desert so i know absolutley nothing on ships, and a bit of the lingo. i know starboard and port, what a bulkhead is, things like tha because of ROTC, marine and navy, but the slang is a little hard.

I only know limited amount of it myself, but I'll share a little for now and tell you some more later. ok

Bulwarks are basicly the railings along the sides of the ship

the are three masts: Fore mast, Main mast and Mizzen Mast in order from front to back.

There are also three decks: the quarter deck, main deck and poop deck.

the Bowsprit is that long cylindrical wood piece on the front.

fore is forward, aft is to the rear and the stern is the back of the ship.

don't worry too much about the slang, just add apostrophes at random parts in words and end anything in 'ing' just drop the g and make 'ending' into 'endin'. End of lesson one. I'll add more later.

Alright. From now on everyone that shoots a letter or message should post in here or in the RP what it says. I think that would save space and lag times associated with asking "what is in the message?" and answering. *ends minor rant*

SO, Jango, what did the message sent to the Covetous say, and to save on further such posts, what did the letter the Flesh Rotter sent say?

great idea Sepi!
To the Covetous, the letter says to hold position while the other three ships catch up. When that is complete, all four ships should try to hold formation until they can breach the fog. Saftey in numbers.

To the Gothmog and Angst is practicly the same, only telling them to catch up as soon as possible. and the rest that was in the letter to the Covetous.

And can we please refrain from shooting eachother so much!? I mean almost every arrow shot from ship to ship has hit another crewmate, I only started it for setting up a possible mutiny later in the RP. And also Aylah, I'll let it slip this once but Grond is several hundreds of yards ahead of your ship, not to mention the Gothmog is between them.

Sorry I didn't clarify that last sentence, I had meant that the Grond was well far out of bowshot. But like I said, I'll let it slip, so don't worry about it too much.

The helmsman onboard the flagship gracefully pulled up next to Covetous , anchor was dropped and planks streched out between them.
Tell me if I wasn't clear enough please, but what I had meant is that Grond had pulled up right next to the Covetous, close enough to run a plank between them and simply walk from one to another. And Johnny, there is no more need for you to be wounded, Alyah had deleted her post so no arrow was shot and you were never hit. The boat was sent behind Grond to the Gothmog and Angst, not to the Covetous. If I am not being clear enough in my posts please tell me, I won't be offended, if I know its something I need to work on then so be it.

Umm. Did the Grond really just drop anchor in enemy waters? I could understand moving together allowing passage between...but stopping...

Viscount: No, Jurd never was supposed to be on your ship at all, he needs to clear things up.
Sepiroth: Keep in mind that one: these are not enemy waters; two: we are completely surrounded by thick fog; three: Nazgrath had already noted that Gondorian will not attack (as is their way) while only firing random shots blindly; four: in order to move in formation they must wait for the last of the vessels to catch up. They're not holding postition for long.

Jango, I'll post as soon as you explain what message the longboat's sending for me, preferably in the RP itself []

I hate it when there are misunderstandings in RPs.
Johnny: No you are not mistaken, but if you noticed above on the page I quoted myself saying that Grond pulled up next to the Covetous, close enough to throw a plank between them. Henceforth, Jurd would not need to hop in a boat and row to the ship that is right next to them, he'd only need to walk along the plank to get to his destination.
Alyah: All the message needs to say is that your ship needs to catch up to the rest and hold formation until they break free of the fog.

You may notice that I started another RP, it does not mean Infinite Horizon is cancelled or anything of the sort. The Green Dragon economy is a little lacking as of late with only a few functioning RPs, so I am hoping to boost some activity by introducing another action/drama RP.

Right-o Jango.

how many active RPs are there? 4? not a good number.

E: Jango, would a flaming mast be visible to anyone on my ship, even though it's a good deal away through heavy fog? Fire is pretty easy to see through fog... if I remember correctly. []

Johnny, I have only one problem with your post, you called that Gondorian ship the Crow Beam. I had already stated the ships name on the first post of the page; Morning Sun . I thought the name fitting for a Gondorian ship since men always look to sun's rising as a sign of hope and victory.

I think it was only one ship attacking us, and I think we had better keep it that way seeing as how Grond is suffering from major damage.
