Would Legendary Ex Senior Pirate Officers take these fees

Postby JMISBEST » Mon Jun 24, 2019 3:37 am

The Solo Pc/A Noble Pc in A Friends Campaign have remortgaged their Cr 25,000,000 Business to be able to, hopefully, hire Ex Senior Pirate Officers

That's A GM Made New type with +5 DM in 5 key skills and +3 DM in 3 none-key skills

They even get Cr 40,000 per month, is possible a minimum of double their normal share of the loot and if they net Cr 150+ million between dividing possible 4 times normal share

As well as which all 11 Underlings are each getting advance payment of 40 months wages or Cr 40,000x40 or 1,600,000 each x11 or Cr 17,600,000 in total

Plus even if they earn not 1 Credit in quite a few years The Pc has, and his followers know, still got enough safely stored on Drinax to pay them another 15 months wages or Cr 40,000x15 or Cr 600,000 each x11 or Cr 6,600,000 or 24,200,000 in total

So would they take that offer?. Everyone I know and has asked say gladly, but we want others opinions, yes?, no?, maybe? or depends on how persuasive they are

So is this JMISBEST little brother again? The textual verbiage sure smells like him. Didn't you say that this wasn't going to happen again?

Your DM's are pretty silly (+5??).

I don't even know what you are trying to ask. Yes?

Yes, they would eagerly take that deal. Then they would take their new riches and disappear, probably taking the ship with them. Pirates who have been successful long enough to train their skills up to those levels would have no respect for anyone dumb enough to throw that kind of cash around while surrounded by hardened criminals like themselves.

So what about Ex Very Senior Naval Officers who have some kind of grudge against The Imperium or are descended from Drinax immigrants or are desperate for the cash or know more then they should and hope for some of the glory
