...seriously, though, '''High Seas''' is a pirate-themed Dreamwidth RP Game. Suddenly dropped on the city of Isla Empieza, you're told by a mysterious ghost to start finding treasure! Your goal? Finding and rebuilding the pieces of the ''[[MacGuffin Piedra Roja]]'', a mysterious gem that can grant the wishes of anyone who possesses it. However, it's not that easy as no one knows where the pieces are. Even worse, just about anything's ready to come and get your, from island inhabitants to the Navy, who hate pirates with a passion! Do you have what it takes to navigate the seven seas, find the pieces and stay out of trouble? Or is there more to this than meets the eye?
