This post start from far. Time ago I was a strong Mount and Blade player, and with creates mods I started a "family history" using this game, starting with a Angle in VI century Britannia, and making other characters in other ages that was descendant of this Angle. Now PotC-NH is more, more wonderful and close to my heart than M&B was, probably for my insane passion for pirates and all that come around this world-sea, galleons, ships, sea battles, and so on- and now a BiG Doubt is come to my poor, devasted mind. Help me before I will be sent in some asylum, please.... Choice 1: Start only a single characte in a chosen era, trying to be more or less like myself and open a great adventure between sea, isles, and the smoke of cannons and musket, choosing my own way and becomeing someone; ----- Choice 2: Make a "campaign" starting with a character that will be the "Family Founder" in XVI century, then after have done with this, continue with their "descendants" until XIX century. Of course each character will live no more than 20 years (a lot of time, and probably will be halved, because with a live of adventure and perils I think that health take his toll): I will use - 1d6 for see in which period end the campign (I suppose that the family hasn't no more heirs, or be decimated by natives, or colera, or settled peacefully elsewhere); - 2d10 for give each a time to become someone or die in the attempt, - 3d10 for the time that must passing before a suitable heir will start a new life in the Caribbean (after all not all sons are like the fathers, but nephews or grandnephews may have some interest to pair thier grand-grandfather acts of valour) At the longer chance, the campaign will end some years after the Congress of Vienna: at this time piracy will be eradicated more or less everywhere, and Morgan, L'Olonais, or William Kidd are gone with their legend. ----- Give me advice, me harties, better the first choice (single char) or the second (campaign)? Help me!
