I think it is time to refill the long vacant position of Captain of the Citizens Militia, which has been nebulous at best since Wiggy stepped down and Darian (who was a fur, which I say to squelch a certain vicious rumor) faded away. After all, there is a HQ building still standing next to the Gangplank. If I interested, please contact me inworld today.
here’s my thoughts on militias, so we are all on he same page.
this is a city.
this is a citizen self defense organization.
I am not firing Jed.
when filling an ‘authority’ role, your character needs to be a hell of a lot dumber than you are, or there is no roleplaying for anyone except yourself. Wiggy did this particularly well.
Babbage rp is not a kill game. Keep the story going. coordinate with the person driving the plot before jumping in with the troops or you are going to break something.
armed sailors are not marines.
our navy, realistically, is most likely a bunch of rich guys playing with boats, shipbuilders who want to prove their toys, and some very competent coasties that know how to deal with pirates. the navy is its own militia, as is the air corp, which would be a more youthful daredevil bunch playing with their toys, especially during kraken season.
don’t shoot people.
you get to run the jail.
