  • Post a Timeline of your Background Story

    Does you character have a background story? I've always enjoyed reading what players create to tell the story of their character. But often times people will submit a huge essay on their character that no one has time to read. A simpler way is to post a timeline.

    Here is a brief timeline on the major events of Capitaine Louis Guittar (Roberts Server)


    Capitaine Louis Guittar
    Corsair de France

    1679: Born in Saint-Malo, France. Was the son of a wealthy ship owner. Named after his uncle.

        Glad you did this Louis, I had meant to do this for a while, this prompted me to action. Also nice work to Louis and Elune on their timelines. Here is what I have for Jack Enfield, still has few holes and has been left intentionally vague in some areas:

        1690- Born in Cornwall, England, son of Jonathan Enfield Esq, a man of middling country gentry, and Mrs Elizabeth Enfield, formerly Elizabeth Grant. Named Jonathan Grant Enfield, prefers to go simply by “Jack” as he grows up.

        1704- Sent to sea early in his 14th year. During the war of Spanish Succession, serves as midshipman on HMS Dorshetshire where he sees his first action at the Siege of Gibralter.

        1710- Made Lieutenant. Commands a Bomb Ketch, the Blast, in the Mediterranean.

        1714-Made Master (and Commander) of a 20 gun frigate-rigged post-ship HMS Lively on escort duty for convoys traveling between North America and Britain.

        1715- An illness takes hold on HMS Lively, requiring quarantine followed by convalescence of the entire crew in Charles Town harbor in the colony of South Carolina. During this period he meets the woman he is destined to marry. Following recovery the ship’s crew is preparing to return to England when the Yamasee War breaks out, Captain Enfield is drawn in to the conflict with the Native Americans for some length before returning to sea. Participates in the “Daufuskie Fight”, in which a Carolinian boat crew defeats a Yamasee force, suffering only one casualty to the Yamasee 35. Saves the lives of several influential colonists, which will aid in his rapid advancement in the navy.

        1717 – Made Post and given command of HMS Retribution, a 44 gun fifth-rate frigate.

        1720-1722- Captain of the fourth-rate HMS Falkland, 50, on duty as a blockading vessel in the Mediterranean. Makes much prize money in the capture of several French merchants, also supervises delivery of government bribes to the Barbary coast.

        1722- Posted as captain of the third-rate ship-of-the-line HMS Cornwall of the Valiant class and ordered to proceed to the Jamaica Station and assume responsibilities of "Clerk of the Cheque and Adjutant" of the West Indies Squadron.

        1723- Invests in the purchase of a printing press from a failing Tory newspaper in Devonshire, England which has found itself suppressed by Walpole’s Whig government. Has the press shipped over in a West Indiamen and sets up publication of the “Port Royal Gazette and Weekly Advertiser”. Enters in to a business partnership with a merchant captain and fellow Cornishman named William Weaver for both publication of the Gazette and victualling in the port of St John’s, Antigua.

            Great thread, glad to see the Salty Sea Dog Inn active again.

            The timeline of Captain Arthur S. Brown Eqs.


            April 3, 1682 - Southampton, England. Athur Brown is born to a wealthy family; the father a Major in the Army, the mother a lovely lady with a taste for expensive jewlery. Most of the Family's money comes from the grandfather, Sir Robert Brown, a weathly merchant who owns a tobacco in Virginia.


            1694 - Arthur is sent away to his grandfather's plantation in Virginia to learn about business and honest work.


            1698 - Arthur returns to England with a new found respect for the common man and the work of an honest living. After arriving at his parents' home in Southampton, he learns that his father had died of neumonia. Arthur could not bare the loss of his valiant father Major Brown. Two months later he became a midshipman on the HMS "Barlour" a schooner bound for the West Indies.


            1701 - Made Lieutenant and commands the HMS "Darlen" a sloop of war in the Caribbean.


            1715 - Lt. Brown is promoted to the rank of Commander and put in command of the brig "Galation."


            1720 - Commander Arthur Brown is assigned to His Majesty's West Indies Squadron and reports to Commodore William A. Roberts.


            1721 - Brown is posted as captain of the 'Valiant' Class third rate ship of the line, HMS "Thunderer." Upon reporting to the Jamaica Station, he receives a letter, his grandfather has died. Arthur now owns the tobacco company in Virginia.


            1722 - Overwhelmed with orders from the Commodore and tied up with business in Virginia, Arthur sees fit to hire his cousin, Creighton Brown, as his economic advisor and to invest in his new ship building company in the port of St. John's.


            1723 - Captain Brown is reinstated now as the Recruiting Officer of the West Indies Squadron after some time spent in his birth place of Southampton England. Captain Arhtur Brown still captains the HMS "Thunderer" and sails under the command of Commodore Nevous Emero. Much of his past has yet to be writen, lost in old captain's logs stored in his personal chest.

              The Angus Podgourney Saga: A True Story from Roberts

              1720: A young pirate from the southern Mediteranian is chasing a trader off the coast of Gibralter when a huge squal picks up. He is tossed into the huge ocean and set adrift for what seems like months. He lands in the Bahamas where he is enlisted into the ranks of other aspiring pirates from Europe. These pirates are the Sea Devils and eventually Angus is named their leader, briefly. He disapears for a month off the coasts of Louisiana and upon his return he finds his clan is abandonned. Alone again in a large pool of pirates he begins his ship building trade. Here he makes some deals with a Dutchman named Willem van Oranje, a most powerful pirate with a small following. These are the Crimson Blade, their numbers just 35 when Angus is recruited.

              1721: The Crimson Blade become one of the most powerful pirate clans on the seas, wether it be 2 or 3 in a group or a dreadful 6 group in newly refitted pirate Hercs. Angus sails late at night with a fellow captain and entrepenour from the north. Together they terrorize British raiding parties around Louisiana, capturing many great prizes whilst being heavily outnumbered. The clan's reputation earns them the respect of the French admiral of the time nicknamed Big Cannon who can only stand by and watch a massive British force capture French port after French port. A deal is made whereby the pirates will protect French ports in exchange for cash and whatever else the pirates could fancy. The pirates won the carribean that season against this huge British force but they could not repeat the triumph again. So the pirates were under contract of the French, but it wouldn't last. Angus and his partner were out raiding late one night and stumbled upon a lone French Mercy frigate, the captain was Ubert le Danois, an up and coming French leader. He was mercilessly stripped of his ship and sent back to Cayo de Marquis bitter that his "mercenaries" had turned on him. Later a pirate cargo ship was similarly molested by a French ship. All deals were off, and the pirates gathered around Grenville to show that the treaty was over. War was afoot.

              1722: The seas had calmed down and Angus was without work. He began salvaging sunken ships near Turpitude when a message came from his northern friend. The clan had moved out entirely to a new playground. Upon Angus' return he discovered some of his clansmen had join the French Navy! After some heavy drinking with Pliskin and Red-Eye Junkz he is pursueded to join the French Navy. However he is informed that the entire clan must take new names, for the French have yet to forget the pirates' transgretions. Angus renames himself Cous (ever the Morrocan), gains reputation and favor with the French Navy and even Capt le Danois, who is so glad to have a strong group of captains at his side he donates ships of the line to Cous to engage battle with the ever looming British fleet. When Ubert finds his new friends are his old enemy he laughs, and even sends Cous a copy of the account that ruined the Pirate-Franco treaty. Cous becomes a master of the Reason 4th rate and line sailing alongside ex-enemies in super collossal ships. Another deal is made about this time with the leaders of the British Navy. However the British are unaware of the reinforcemnets the French had recieved, but they make a deal where French Harbors are spared in an attempt to rebuild New France. This was a horrible diplomatic move for the British because secretly the Crimson Blade, now called the Crimson Bastards, were building super collossal ships under the protection of this deal. The time came to end the deal and unleash the awsome new power of New France!

              1723: Many great victories had been claimed by the French fleet and Britain's massive fleet in the new world was destroyed utterly. Captain Cous had become the French rear admiral and was leading battles for ports and smaller engagements. The Bastards were done, though, slowly they left the Carribean leaving Cous alone again. He joined up with Jack Leon and his German mercenaries in a society called ATLANTICA, this was his first taste of massive shipbuilding and he took to it. Finnally with Jack's help he built his own 1st rate ship of the line. Then another, then a Couronne Mastercraft for his Trader, Fifi. The Germans were pleased with Cous' abilities, but unhappy with the leadership in New France. Cous had become a counsil member only for a few weeks when Jack became enraged at the counsil and both were banned from meetings. Cous is a character that never quits, however, and briefly joins Capt le Danois in his Les Elites, a well groomed group of captains who rarely lose ships. Rumors of society mergers were in the air with a group called Legionnaire Germanic, but Cous declined the invite to this new society, Flotte Entrange, and joins his Swedish friends in Hans Majestats Kaparflotta, the oldest society in New France. Here he regains his seat on the counsil and takes Ubert's position as French Grand Admiral while Ubert is away.

              1724: Again many victories had passed and some thrilling defeats as France battles it out with Spain, Britain, and pirates for control of the Carribean. He becomes the governor of one of the most contested ports in the region: Irish Point. Only losing it once to British control for a short 4 days, it is quickly reconquered by the French with new Russian allies. Together with these seasoned veterans of the seas, a fraction of the old Germans, Swedes, and the proud French captains (always a wild mix of captains from around the world) Cous helps his country prosper into a military might that amazes even himself.

                  I based my CHR off of Treasure Island. Long John Silver once worked for a Pirate named Captian Flint. Not much in the book was said of Captian Flint other then he was an well known outlaw pirate captian during the 1700s. So I fill in the blanks with my CHR. I kind of modeled my CHR to look like black beard with peg leg and beard. But Flint has a baled head! Flint smokes a pipe and has a black crow who sits and poops on his shoulder. He smells of drink, smoke, gunpowder and salted cippers. He does not like anyone who is a Nat unless they have money! He is a no good low down dirty Pirate so watch out! Flint is as corupt as a barrel snakes!

                  My timeline is 1720 came to the New World running from the hangmen noose in England! Flint does not like rich noblemen..Robs from rich gives to the boose and *****s!!! ARRRRRRRRRR!

                      11 June 1696, James Francis Edward Keith was born as the second son of William, 9th Earl Marischal of Scotland, at the castle of Inverugie near Peterhead.

                      Through his careful education under the historian Robert Keith, and subsequently at the University of Aberdeen in preparation for the legal profession, he acquired that taste for literature which afterwards secured him the esteem of the most distinguished savants of Europe, but at an early period his preference for a soldier's career was decided.

                      1715, James and his elder brother George supports the Jacobite Rebellion in Scottland.
                      The Rebellion collapse...

                          Timeline: Sylvain d'Aumont ((L50 Freetrader, Antigua France))

                          1678 - Born the sixth son of a very minor noble in continental France. Despite the measure of blue blood in his veins, he had few prospects due to his family's modest holdings and large size; for his own part, he was not disciplined enough for the military; not studious enough for academia; not organized enough for the law, and wholly unsuited to the clergy. However, his virtues (such as they were) manifested at an early age: He was charming, made friends easily, was quite shrewd and a keen judge of character, and could talk his way out of (and often, into) all sorts of dangerous situations.

                          1698 - After being thrown out of some of the finest universities in Europe for misbehavior of various sorts, his father cut him off and sent him away to make whatever life he could for himself.

                          1698-1702 - Before he was 24, he had become intimately familiar with every gambling hall and house of ill repute from Paris to Venice to Constantinople, always staying at least one step ahead of creditors, cardsharps, loansharks, and the fathers of compromised daughters. Along the way, his friends (mostly dispossessed young nobles like himself) were constantly talking of the "new world", and the opportunity there; the chance to write their own names on a clean slate, and be free of the shackles of the European social system.

                          1702 - The outbreak of Queen Anne's War, coupled with a particularly bad night at the casino, gave young Sylvain a motivation to seek adventure and fortune in the Caribbean. At first, the only things that changed about his lifestyle were the dress code and the ambient temperature. He drank, gambled, caroused, talked, and romanced his way around the Burning Sea; never staying too long in any one place.

                          1702-1712 - Eventually, he settled into a slow seasonal migration between San Juan and New Orleans, with occasional layovers in the French Antilles when he needed to stay out of sight. His natural talents for making friends and making deals kept him supplied with just enough coin to support his lifestyle. As a natural side-effect of the many days spent sailing from port to port, he became familar with ships and seafaring, and got to be an accomplished sailor of small boats; often supplementing his (ir)regular income with prizes won in races.

                          1712 - Late one breezy Monday morning on the docks in Havana, Sylvain awoke from a drunken stupor and met the love of his life. She was older than he was, by at least 20 years. Her beauty had faded a bit, and her raiment was tattered and worn, but she was still proud and unbowed by time and hardship. The war was winding down, and the peace that would follow the deal-making at Utrecht was bound to be bright and bursting with opportunity. As soon has he had focused his concentration enough to peer through his hangover, Sylvain realized he had found the perfect partner.
                          She was an old Spanish galleon. Her keel was laid in the middle of the last century, and she had been named Las Cruces. She was tied up to a disheveled pier in a remote corner of a private shipyard. What little paint and varnish she had left were peeling and flaking, and she was listing uncomfortably, but her lines were true and her timbers looked sound. Sylvain asked around a bit, and learned that the ship had been impounded by the dockyard owner for an unpaid repair bill. Some deeper questioning (lubricated with rum, no doubt) revealed that her last captain (apparently an entirely despicable personage) met his end on the point of a dagger in a disreputable tavern, and that his crew had promptly jumped ship. The registered owner was a small trading house in Caracas, but no word had been had from them in months; perhaps years.
                          Sylvain made himself as presentable as he could, and sought out the owner of the dockyard. Yes, the ship was for sale. It could be had for the settling of the bill, and some storage costs (which Sylvain promptly negotiated away). He toured the ship, and found her to be as sound and solid as the day she was launched. The shipwright was equally impressed, repeatedly exclaiming that "they don't build them like this anymore, and that's the truth!" "The Truth" indeed, thought Sylvain, and on the spot he renamed the ship Le Vrai.
                          They agreed on a price, and Sylvain handed over the few doubloons he had as a deposit. Over the next 3 days, he made some friends, made some deals, made some threats, and won a few very lucky hands at cards. He returned before the week was out to pay the balance. A weekend of fast talk produced some provisions and a small crew willing to sail on nothing but their new captain's charm and the promise of adventure and a bit of gold. As part of his wheeling and dealing, Sylvain had arranged the sale of a quantity of teak-wood between two acquaintances; part of the deal called for shipping the wood from the forests inland of Puerto del Principe to the shipyards in Santo Domingo. Thus, he had his first cargo.

                          1712-1717 - For the next five years, Sylvain and his (increasingly large and contented) crew criss-crossed the Carribean, at first carrying goods for independent merchants, and later trading on their own. From hemp to sugarcane, gold to gunpowder, cannon barrels to barrels of rum; if it was bought in one place and sold in another, Le Vrai and her captain were involved. But eventually, the bad weather, the deals that went bad, the pirates, the privateers, and (not least of all) the tax assessors drove Sylvain ashore. He had made himself wealthy beyond his own count, and settled down in the French colonies on the Gulf of Mexico.

                          1717-1720 - At first, he was content with a small farm in central Florida, but this soon expanded to include a vinyard and a winery, and later a ranch. His lifelong fascination with distilled spirits led him to cultivate sugarcane and with it, his own label of fine rum. Eventually, he began packaging the various products of his plantations into provisioning bundles for ships. Today, he trades under the name of "Gulf Coast Grocery & Supply", and his small fleet of cargo ships carry food and drink to all the major ports of call on the Gulf.

                          Present Day - Although he now has at his disposal a small fleet of armed merchant ships, he is still devoted to his first love, Le Vrai. She still hasn't seen a coat of paint or varnish, and her sails are stitched and patched a hundred times over. But Sylvain still finds his greatest joy on her quarterdeck and in the trade halls of the numberless ports of the Caribbean; in the unlooked-for deal and the quick profit, the blockades avoided and the pirates evaded. Part merchant, part noble, part gentleman-farmer, and part sea-dog himself, Captain Sylvain d'Aumont has made himself a new man on the Burning Sea.

                          ((This was originally written as a prose biography; I reformatted it into more of a timeline.))

                          ((Hopefully I'm not the only one with a "cosmetic ship" - Le Vrai is a scuzzy-looking Santiago Trader's Galleon, painted a dull grey-beige with faded, discolored French Trade Union sails. I'm currently using it to do the Red Tape/Speedy Delivery local trader missions, so if you're on Antigua, you may see her around!))

                              1699 - Samuel Voeckler was the born near the french town of Strasbourg, in his fathers estate. He was the first-born in a family of 3 sons and 2 daughters, his father was the seigneur of a small fief in Alsace.

                              1709 - Samuel is sent to Paris, to study at the Collège Louis-le-Grand, here he studies together with some of the great minds of his time, for instance: François-Marie Arouet (Voltaire).

                              1715 - Samuel decides he is not meant for simple studies or writing, and his father buys him a commission as aspirant on the frigate: Le Guerrière.

                              1717 - Samuel quikly rises through the ranks, by now he is a Lieutenant de vaisseau, and word goes he is to be promoted to Capitaine de corvette soon.

                              March 1718 - It has happend, Samuel is given command of a small ship called Le Petit Soeur and sails for the Carribbean.

                              June 1718 - Le Petit Soeur encounters a british merchant ship outside of Jamaica, the Brit is far larger than the Soeur, but Capitaine Voeckler attacks anyway, after a long and tough battle the Brit surrenders, and Voeckler sails back to Point-á-Pitre, with his prize and cargo.

                              1719 - News of Voeckler's Capture reaches the ears of high admirals, and he is promoted to Capitaine de vaisseau. His new ship, La Belle Louise, is a fine 4th rate ship-of-the-line, and he soon begins sailing with the assembled fleet, he is witness, and partaker in many victories and defeats.

                              1721 - Voeckler has gained so much support of the aristocracy in France, that in May a letter is sent to him, containing information about his upcoming promotion to Contre-Amiral, and swiftly after Vice-Amiral.

                              1723 - After attempting to lead, or help lead french fleets for 2 years his vice-reine (Elune Baq) is forced to abdicate her post (for personal reasons) and a leadership void opens. The great societies, the aristocracy, and the king himself, decide it is the moment to form a "so-called" High Council (haute-conseil) to be formed. Seated in this High Council would be 3 equal ministers or Marquis'. And Voeckler was voted one of these. the following months he has done his best to lead the French to victory, before being called back to France for a short period of time, to discuss the matter of the Carribbean with the admiralty and the Royal Court.

                              1724 - Samuel Voeckler, High Chancellor, Marquis de la Nouvelle France, returns to the Carribbean, in good spirits, hoping to lead the french to victory once more.
