Ladies and gecklefins:

I just finished watching Monty Pythons “The Crimson Financial Assurance” Short film, and I truly felt inspired… For those that don’t know it is the story of a Financial Corporate Business that throws off the shackles of it’s American Managers and LITTERALLY sets sail on the High Corporate seas. The 10ft 1910’s style building ways anchor unfurls sails and actually sets sail.

This was wonderful, they used Filing cabinets as cannons, the Files as cannon balls, Fan blades became cutlass swords, and Tea became a power source! Bits of coat racks became deadly hooks, the building and its crew became true Corporate Pirates! So… I thought If the Pythons could do it, surely we Sluggites could!!!

Here is your task…

I, The Lord High CEO, ruler of the Mighty Inter-Dimensional Corporate Conglomerate “Crossroads Inc.” Is the Highest of the High Ivory Towers of the Corporate Sea. You must build and create a financial office building in which to set sail. Join with friends and make alliances, or turn on rivals to increase your power. Pillage other companies, lay claim with Hostile Takeovers; I shall be judging on silliness, greed and gusto!

In the end we shall see which Corporate Sluggite Pirates can try to unseat, The Lord High CEO!!!


P.S. This is hounstly, a HORRIBLY Ludericrus Idea, and if it doesn't work out, it's ok, but golly, I had to try!!!

YAY! I can login again!

*breathes*

Ah, I've seen this short movie, its so funny, with these suited businessmen firing with wild abandon at other office buildings. The filing cabinet cannons are particularly amusing.

Now, how do we play this game, exactly? Cause, I'm kinda interested.
Do we start by choosing friends and a company name?

Yarr, mateys! This be Cap'n Ipslore, o' the H.R.S Limited Amalgamated, Inc, the scurviest Accounts Payable Dept. to hit the Six Seas! We got so much red tape, we be usin' it to swab the decks and choke sharks with. We push a mean pen, too. Yarr! Hoist the mizzensail! Shiver me giblets! etc. etc.

If other people like yer cause, they'll join yer crew.

Pirates? WOOHOO!!!

Wait? Corperate Pirates?

It seems an unexpected twist, m'lady.

Aye, an unexpected twist it shall be!

*The grand library of MOOP! lifts up and sets sail, but not on the seas, for it is not an ordinary sailing ship, nay, it lifts into the air and flys like any good airship would. Armed with heavy wooden furniture, bookshelves, and all manner of librarian mannerisms, they set sail under the grand librarian herself, Captain Rin the Silent.*

Protect the knowladge!!

~Captain Rin the Silent

MOOP!

As a slightly pirate-y, but more or less OOG comment, does anyone here play WizKids Pirates Of The Spanish Main game? I mean, we all love pirates, and PotSM is a cool game, so it's a no-brainer!

Harr, I'm willing to ship out with any crew what wants me aboard!



(But if you don't reply before noon EST (ten minutes from this post), I won't see it until probably around 4 (I have exams). Just letting you all know.)
