Sometimes I think about the most random things. When these thoughts are about Pirate101, I call them tavern thoughts. Because honestly, between running away from the Armada and fighting countless enemies, there really isn’t another place for me to relax and reflect on life. Being a pirate is fun and all, but everyone needs their alone time every now and again. Without further ado, here are just some of the tavern thoughts that have crossed my mind lately.
Where Did Our Names Come From?
A lot of player names have adjectives before them. For example, mine is Virtuous Vanessa. Did I give that name to myself or is that something I earned through reputation? Did I do something virtuous in my past and the name stuck? Wouldn’t it be a bit conceited of me if my character gave that name to herself? Then again, there are names that you probably wouldn’t want to give yourself. Annoying, dull, dishonest, and greedy are all available character names, but would you really want to be associated with any of them? Someone please tell me why I’m so virtuous.
How Big is the Group?
Pirate101 has a TON of companions. If you collect them all, or even just most, your crew would be pretty large! Do we all walk together in a huge mob formation? Do some stay on the ship? In a tavern? Being surrounded by all your companions wherever you go isn’t exactly stealthy. Though, I suppose it would offer a good layer of protection.
Can Pirates Use Spiral Doors?
The skyways, while fun to explore, are littered with dangerous creatures and enemy ships. It seems like it would be way more efficient to use the spiral’s existing world doors. We already know for a fact that Marleybone and Mooshu have one … are we allowed to use them? (I understand that this is due to the gameplay mechanics. This question is just purely from a lore standpoint).
Can you Die in the Skyway?
I’ve already brought up the mysterious floating ships in a previous post, but let’s take it one step further. In addition to ships sailing in the skyway, chunks of land, debris, and other creatures also float in the vast skies. If a pirate were to jump off of a ship in the middle of a skyway, would they die? Would they float? It almost seems like skyways are the spiral’s highways. Think about it. Although you can use a car or truck on a highway, you wouldn’t necessarily die if you tried to walk alongside it. It would be more dangerous yes … but doable perhaps.
So, do you have any tavern thoughts? Let me know in the comments below! :)
