PotBS: Preview @ Hooked Gamers

The game's main feature are the ship-to-ship battles that will take place against real live human players. There won't be any of the common and easy to destroy ships captained by stupid computer AIs. During the era of the sail, when pirates actually plied the blue seas of the Caribbean, there were an enormous number of ships under sail. History tells us that various seafaring folk might choose the life of a merchant ship's captain, bartering and selling their wares at numerous towns and seaports on various islands located in this vast sea. Others chose the life of a Naval officer and assumed the task of defending the honour of one's nation. Still others decided to become pirates or corsairs, not necessarily out of free will, that would prey on helpless merchants or other less fortunate souls. With that said, everything that will take place in this game will be dynamic in nature and it will be patterned after historical events. Add in the human against human factor and you can rest assured that you will have as much fun as is contained in a barrel of rum. So, batten down the hatches and get ready for the sea battle of your life.
