I was going to forego playing this game. Seems me and PTTE have a long and sordid past together and I wasn't sure if I was up to the challenge of picking and staying with an order of plank walkin'. Well, that was until I ran across my newest spoiler/speculation.
Okay. It's not really a spoiler, (more speculation...or cons-piracy) and I also realize that most of you will laugh at my new strategy. (Specially since I'm sharing it with everyone rather then hording it myself. Okay, really it'll be because it's a sure-fire path of PTTE disaster, a path you already know you shouldn't go down, but I can't make decisions on these pirate wannabes yet, so I'm looking for guidance of any kind.)
I ran across a website, some of you may actually be familiar with... the Pirate Name Generator. Whilest entering and compiling the Pirate names for all of the pirate master's cast, I happened to notice something. (Probably nothing. But When I'm starting with nothing, as noted, I will cling onto anything.)
First off....My "pirate" name is tribe phyl: Pirate Jaques the Disgruntled.
Ooo...I'm a pirate. And I'm French and disgruntled. (Sounds about right.)
But as far as the cast? Only two players came up as pirates. (Jupiter and JD)
And only two more came up as Cap'ns. (Christa and Jay)
The rest I divided into two categories. The 2/1 (or +) and the 1/2 (or X). Divided by the set up of their "pirate" name.
Those with 2 describing words before a first name and those with a single describer before a full name.
Here's how I divided them using their pirate generated names:
Alexis Shubin: Lazy Eye Jo +
Ben Fagen: Plank Monkey William +
Cheryl Kosewicz: Poop Deck Brandy +
Christian Okoye: Poop Deck Finn +
Kendra Guffey: Jelly Wrist Bianca +
Nessa Nemir: Fish Breath Faye +
Azmyth Kaminski: "Quadruped" Hidalgo Sparrow X
John Lakness: Androgynous Garrick Cutler X
Jocelyn "Joy" McElveen: Blind Deb Hornigold X
Laurel Schmidt: Stutterin' Uma Bonny X
Louie Frase: Rotting Baird Grimm X
Sean Twomey: Rancid Isaac Drake X
Joe Don "J.D." Morton: Pirate Ross the Fruit *
Elicia "Jupiter" Mendoza: Pirate Anne the Malformed *
Christa DeAngelo: Cap'n Evelyn Leadblade *
Jay Hatkow: Cap'n Jim Beerbong *
Two cap'ns? Final 2?
I bet the pirates are the instigators of the most drama and might even be among the final 4. Or at least strong players to go against the cap'ns.
The Xs (or 1/2s) seem to be our dramatic crowd. Louie, Sean, Azmyth, John all look to be our "for purposes of drama" pirates.
And finally, the +s (or 2/1s)
I getting the least amount of vibes from these cast members.
My bet is they will serve as the early
bootees plank walkers.
Of course, this could all be in my head too.
But just to add a couple more pirate generated names for reference?...
Cameron Daddo: Cap'n Argus Leadhead
Mark Burnett: Pirate Iggy the Badly Burnt
Things that make you go hmmm...
By the way, these names will be used as the basis for the new Be The Pirate Master dialouge game. Sign-ups Going on here.
Oh and as to my PTTE? (of which I almost forgot to do)
