Hey, We Just Wanted to Become Famous Sea-Faring Pirates… (game session)

The Players:

  • Peter: a 5-time winner of the trophy, formerly “The Usurper”; The Risk Master
  • Gary: the previous holder of the Risk Master trophy; The Atlantean Champion
  • Alan: has never won the trophy, despite his love of nuclear explosions; Proponent of “Peaceful Coexistence”

The Game: Pirate’s Cove

Who knew that trying to become a famous pirate would be so lopsided? Gary quickly gained one fame from sinking Alan’s ship and Pete gained some fame from attacking a “famous” pirate who refused to even fight back. The other two great pirates, Blackbeard and The Flying Dutchman, were generally avoided, but those that went against them suffered great casualties. Overall, things seemed to be going well at the start. Somewhere along the way, however, it became clear that Alan’s infamy would far outweigh that of Gary and Pete.

For as much as Pete outpaced Gary, Alan outpaced Pete and showed no signs of stopping; he persisted in his acquiring of fame, gold, and treasure. However, his insistence of not wanting trouble rang false: too often his ship found its way into waters already charted by either Pete, Gary… or both!

Alan was also a mean old pirate. He had the gall to “imply” to the Royal Navy where Gary and Pete had their ships. Twice! Pete was no match for the Royal Navy, and was forced to drop the nine treasures hidden in his hull. And thus, Pete lost his chance to gain enough fame to catch up to the mean old pirate.

Gary was quite sneaky. His fame as a pirate menace grew slowly and eventually overtook Pete’s notoriety. His fame, unlike that of Alan’s, came from his exploits in the Tavern, thus allowing him to keep a low profile until their Year of Infamy ended.

This, however, could not stop Alan from becoming the most infamous of the three!
