PostSubject: Pirate's Booty! One Hundred Pieces of Treasure!   Tue Apr 01, 2014 12:39 am

Pirate's Booty. One hundred Pieces of Treasure.
------------------------------

Yeah Baby (say it like Austin Powers)...PIRATE'S BOOTY! You share your booty (ahem) and then we'll divy it up with the crew...you included. You get back the same AMOUNT of stuff you send in...it's just different stuff...cool stuff...better stuff...incredible stuff!!!

----------------------------------
Here's how it works:

1. You pick ten items from your stash of rare and wonderful pipe stuff and send 'em to me in a USPS medium flat rate box with a check or MO to cover return postage, and an address label for it to come back to you.
2. The ten items should include one pipe, five units of tobacco (a unit = one tin or 2 oz. bulk) and four items of your own choosing (which does not have to be pipe stuff). Who sent in what will be kept strictly confidential.
3. Once all players have submitted their booty, photos will be taken and posted here. Then an orderly (well, somewhat orderly) distribution will begin, managed by yours truly.
4. The "Choosing of Booty" will occur in a series of ten rounds, the picking order reassigned according to random draw, renewed with each round...so everyone has an equal chance of being number one or two, etc. each time. All items will be available for choosing during each round. Once chosen, the item will go into that person's box, safe from the lust of other Pirates.
6. Once booty choosing is done the boxes will be packed, sealed, labeled and sent back off to their owners.

--------------------------

I'll start a list of ten or maybe a few more and we can go from there. Since names will me public I won't go the PM route for signing up.

Ye Old List of Pirate Players:

1. Blackhorse
2. Gravel
3. GrampaGrossbart
4. Spud15
5. PozzSka
6. Fatman
7. Growley
8. d4klutz
9. BigCasino
10. Mozjo33

Full Up Mateys!




Questions...comments...sign-ups...?

I signed up just so I could use the  P ) emoticon in good conscience. Ha. The next awesome idea needs to be Egyptian based so I can use the  farao without feeling guilty...

Yep, I'm already feeling a little guilty.


This is going to be fun.

Wow! The crew has been chosen and we have a full compliment at this time.

Here's the Deal!


I will open up ROUND ONE of choosing treasures from the total booty pile on FRIDAY, APRIL 25th! So boxes from participants are due here no later then Friday the 18th.

The 100 items will each be assigned a number which will be clearly visible...items will be photographed in groups and posted here ASAP after the 18th. A master list will be posted after the photos, which will be updated as items are chosen. ROUND TWO will be started once a second random order name list is drawn and posted. The posting of the name list is the GO signal for picking items. Subsequent rounds will be done as the above until all ten rounds are completed.

Or...as initially stated.

Names will be drawn from a hat and posted here to show the order of picking. The number one picker will post here what their choice is. That will open the door for the next person in line to pick an item. Then they will post their choice, etc.

READ THIS!!!

Your items should be sent to me in one medium USPS flat rate priority box...USING A STANDARD USPS MAILING LABEL so I can return it by putting a new label over the old one. If you screw this part up...I'm keepin' all her treasure!

So, send your stuff any time. I recommend the box design that is more flat and wider.

WHAT TO SEND - Recommendations to follow.

Note to Pirates

I can take photos of your pipe. Or...if you have one, PM it to me and I will pick the one that shows the pipe to best advantage...or re-take as I see fit. Each pipe will be represented by a single photo. If you have a write-up or anything someone else should know, include that in your box. Please clean up the pipe as best you can. I might re-buff, etc. but I will do no sterilizing, salt treatments, etc. Try to pick one that's not heavily ghosted...but if the pipe has been exposed to Latakia or Lakelands, etc. include that in your notes. No can hold it against you since no one will know who submitted what.

Re: tobacco: Bulk tobacco should be weighed if possible and marked as to blender, name and weight. I would like each bag of bulk to be put in a plain zip lock bag and then into a second bag so that each one is double bagged. The inside baggie should be the one with the writing (Sharpie works well...just not the extra fine tip as that is not permanent on zip locks for some reason). So...double bag you bulk blends. Also note month and year if known.

If you submit tins, like Fatman, write the date obtained or tinned, if known, on the bottom of the tin with a Sharpie, etc.

Do not send anything illegal or that should not be sent via USPS. If I receive anything like that I will hold it for you here at the house for pickup at your convenience. Really! lol I will then replace the confiscated item with a rock that has your name tied to it...just so when it comes down to the end the guy that lost a pick due to you can contact you for a replacement item. LOL

Submitted with proper respect...Blackhorse, the Pirate King.  king

If you have a wide range, maybe a representative of various genres. The wider the spread, the more likely everyone will find something they dote on. Just a thought.

Hey!


Anyway...that's not velvet...it's chintz!


Also - We have a full crew of blood thirsty brothers lined up and drooling for booty...as we all are wont to do. It'll be slow and tedious sailing until we get to Treasure Island, but then all hells sure to break loose. I intend to have each round of choosing items "theme hosted" by a real or fictional black hearted character...Black Bart...Blue Beard...the Dread Pirate Roberts...Long John Silver...Giligan...Capt. Jack Sparrow...Capt. Hook...Ginger...Mary Ann...and Puros Bran  Suspect.  Arrrrr!

That should scare ye back down to quarters ye scurvy drooge!

Pirate themed items among the 'final four' might be fun. You know...Black Seal Rum...a shiv...a bag of gold and jools! Oh look...I happened to come up FIRST on the draw! Avast there! Them jools be MINE, Mister Smee!

Hey, if pirate booty is good enough for Cyndi Lauper and the Superstars of Wrestling, it's good enough for me!



And, of course, the sequel:



Soon as I follow this treasure map to the X, I'll be sending out me loot!

Sorry guys, this was set up for a crew of 10 and the ship's roster is full up.


Also: Note to crew...

I've seen a couple of you lot that seem to have your items chosen already. If you're ready to ship your box to me just PM me for the correct address and I'll reply.

And don't forget your check or MO for the return postage. The cost is $12.35. Without that, your booty stays here! lol

Yes. For those for you set up with that capability...go ahead and do that.

And...I stopped by the PO yesterday and picked up nine of the flat design medium flat rate priority boxes...so y'all can send your booty to me in whatever you want. Just know, as you're picking items from the treasure hoard, that all your items need to fit inside that box for return. Otherwise (here we go again) I'll be contacting you to find out which of your items you want to leave here for ME to enjoy!  P )

that would probably be a good reason as to use the same box to send it to you in, as you will be shipping it out in, and also everyone should take in the consideration if all of your booty doesn't fit into one box, said pirate will have to pay additional shipping to receive the rest of their booty , I mean that was probably obvious but hey just throwing it out there

We are officially at sea! So yo ho ho and all that jazz.


And what do we find, not even a day out of port?  A light merchantman...limping along, heavy in the water (means a full hold...a little physics there). Do ya see her colors, Smee?  What's that, a British Jack! Excellent! Bring us around Gramps...let's just have a look at 'er.

Aye! She's a worthy enough prize, Smee! Let's warm the boyos up to their stations and see how they fare in trading a little round ball with 'er! Hard a'port, Gramps! Let's just make a little run across her stern and rake her a bit...just to show her we mean business...that'll get her knickers in a shiver! Starboard guns...load 'em and be ready there, men! You on the Port battery...be loaded and ready when we come about.

Ahhh! Look at her! She's coming around...dropping more sail...opening her ports...why Smee! I do believe she'll try to defend her honor!

Starboard guns...fire as yer guns bear! At yer will!

-----------------------------

And so it was, after a brief skirmish, that the first prize of the voyage was won.

Booty was taken, prisoners... there were none.

Evidence...Davy Jones don't do no CSI!

-----------------------------

So crew names were put in a hat and drawn by the Cap't. The number in parenthesis after your name is your draw order.

You are now free to puck your prize...in order please. No crowding there! Yes, let's be orderly about it.

As soon as number one (Gravel) picks his prize by posting the choice here...number two (PozzSka) can go ahead and post his choice, etc., etc., etc. Anyone screws up and tries to crowd ahead goes to the end of the line!

I will duck back in from time to time and put an X in front of items that have been picked, but pay attention and don't pick something someone before you has picked (DUH!)

There ya be! Your pick order is below. The list of prizes (booty donated by a brother of sterling character) is below that.

You may now begin picking your prizes...in order...and they will be added to your later picks and sent with your main box.

GO! PICK ONE ITEM EACH!


1. Blackhorse (3)
2. Gravel (1)
3. GrampaGrossbart (8 )
4. Spud15 (9)
5. PozzSka (2)
6. Fatman (5)
7. Growley (7)
8. d4klutz (10)
9. BigCasino (4)
10. Mozjo33 (6)

Yes...in public...here...as soon as the guy in front of you picks. The order is the number BEHIND your name. You are number 4. I am number 3. PozzSka is number 2. Gravel is number 1...etc. So as soon as the three of us post here, you get to go. It really is pretty basic.

Gravel! Where ye be me'lad?
