Splash her with water.

Aye.  All of those lit fuses and dry gunpowders sound dangerous, better put them out.

Use LV.52 ABYSSAL SAFEGUARD: AQUATOCRATIC CONTINGENCY and shield yourself from attack!

You summon the MIGHTY POWERS OF THE ABYSS to splash a wave of filthy bilgewater in the direction of the swarthy lass. Regretably she steps aside and shoots you with her flintlock. The ball buries itself in the ultra-lite hockey armor you wear under your costume and knocks you backwards over the captain's chair. Black Diamond gives a hearty "har-har" and tosses the lit bomb out the window, drawing her cutlass and advancing on you.
 
"Yar, yer filthy tricks shan't avail ye sea-squirt"

You are bruised and sat on your ass in a puddle. A smoking hot pirate queen is holding a cutlass pointing at your head.

What do you do?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Mock her for her use of antiquated and primitive weaponry. This will surely stall her.

"Hey where did you get that cutlass? The... toilet...store?"

Yeah, you got nothing.

Ok, failing that, cause all the water molecules in her body to turn TO STEAM, thusly causing her to EXPLODE!

Use your Ice cream headache powers to seduce the dirty pirate hooker.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Time for some slick moves.

And by that I mean make the puddle on the ground flow under her boots so she looses traction, thus causing her to trip.

We'll call it LVL. 7 NIXON STYLE: SLIPPERY DICK

Wait for the few seconds it takes for the firecrackers in her hair to go off and explode her head.

Or at least make her look stupid for putting them there in the first place.
Not a winner anymore.

You mentally file the attack name for future use, but regrettably Black Diamond is standing still, it seems unlikely a little water would cause her to slip.

You can't change the phase of water, dicktits.

You wait a few seconds but the firecrackers just keep fizzing. Must be some high tech new type of fireworks. Science is amazing.

Use your Ice cream headache powers to seduce the dirty pirate hooker.

As Diamond raises her cutlass you hit her with the psychic equivalent of a hastily downed slushie on a hot summer's day. Unprepared, the busty pirate wench is rendered helpless by the intense debilitating pain.

Acting quickly you disarm her and shove a wastepaper bin on her head. Victory is yours!

The Playboy tells you to shove all the defeated pirates into one of their dinghies and take them to the cops. For your swift foiling of this pirate robbery and for not asking any questions he gives you two hundred bucks. You also decide to keep the rad cutlass as a trophy.

When you deliver Black Diamond and her crew to the cops you get your photo in the newspaper. Page 8 billing. NICE. You cut the article out and paste it into a scrapbook. Won't be long until you're on the front page with the likes of Scrapheap.


How do you want to spend your 200 bux?

Oh come now, Lurk.

The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.

You may be the King of the Seas, but you need a way to chase down land based criminals.  Get the best transportation 200 bucks can buy.

Buy an expensive headset, so you look like you're a pro, and occasionally pretend to talk to some one on it.

You buy a fixed gear bike and get a Mechane mPhoneTM on contract.



Issue 3: The Cape and the Cowl

It is a week later. You are patrolling the one of the wealthier neighborhoods, as befits your kingly status, and also to capitalise on your recent positive media exposure. You nod to the doormen of the ritzy apartment buildings as you pass. The sun is just setting throwing long golden shadows across the spotless sidewalk. The sound of vintage cars mingles with the lilting bells of Giuseppe's old style ice cream van. Looking at all this stuff almost makes you forget you live in an unremarkable and sort of crappy suburb. Not for long, if things continue well.

Suddenly, a sound assails your ears. The sound of a crime in progress!

"Stop! Theif! My purse! Oh somebody help"

A mugger runs past you clutching a lady's purse and hares it down a dark (but upmarket) alley.

What do you do?
