(Warning: Bit of a long post ahead)

As we all know, some of the best moments in Sea of Thieves come from the interactions we have with other players. Whether they are your crew, an enemy crew, or an allied crew, the way people act in the game can often be… surprising. In a game with such freedom and possibility, there are also those who choose to role play and get into character as their pirate. However, I feel that there is also room to role play as other actors in the Caribbean from the time. This guide is based on the roles my friends and I came up with while playing the game. I hope you'll follow the guide if you enjoy it, or maybe this will inspire you to develop your own roles!


Rules:

The rules for the Royal Navy play largely revolve around how interactions with other players are determined. Using the flag other ships are flying, the interactions are as follows:

  • Blue Flag: Royal Navy vessel. These ships should be assisted in combat, but otherwise can be ignored. If a Royal Navy ship initiates combat, they are a mutinous crew, and their ship would be better at the bottom of the sea than in their hands!
  • Red, white, and Jolly Roger flags: Spanish, French, and Pirate ships, respectively. These ships should be attacked on sight.
  • All other flags: Merchant or civilian vessels. These ships should be made to submit to an inspection of their goods for contraband. Failure to submit, or acts of aggression, will be seen as a criminal act and appropriate measures will be taken.

Regarding contraband: What constitutes contraband is up to you, and also up to how seriously you're taking the role play. Choosing a certain type of Merchant Crate as contraband is a good choice, while chests and skulls do not. As well, you may decide that no in game item is contraband, and just want to see who plays along. If you do pick something however, be narrow and specific. One to three specific items is enough for a more serious role play to meaningfully occur.

Remember to always conduct yourself accordingly as a member of the Royal Navy. Initiating combat with merchants, civilians, or other Royal Navy ships is unacceptable. Only fire when fired upon. French, Spanish, and Pirate ships, however, should be shown no quarter.

Uniforms:

I've put together a few different uniforms that each correspond to different roles, as well as different levels and amounts of gold. I tried to piece them together to be as close to real Royal Navy uniforms as possible given what is available in the game. Of course, these are just ideas, feel free to wear whatever you like!

Captain:

  • Executive Admiral Shirt
  • Admiral Hat
  • Grand Admiral Gloves
  • Admiral Jacket
  • Ceremonial Admiral Trousers (standard admiral acceptable as substitute)

  • Minimal pegs/hooks/patches, keep em fancy if you do want to use one

Marine Officer Uniform

Marine Uniform:

  • Executive Admiral Shirt
  • Hunter Hat
  • Grand Admiral Gloves
  • Admiral Jacket
  • Ceremonial Admiral Trousers (standard admiral acceptable as substitute)
  • Admiral Boots
  • High Society Hair, bone white colour
  • Scars acceptable, avoid tattoos
  • Minimal pegs/hooks/patches, keep em simple if you do want to use one

Marine Uniform

Officers are open to use any weapons they like, but try to keep them to the fancier looking sets (i.e. Admiral and Sovereign sets). Enlisted and Marines should use the base sailor set.

Read:  I just played for the first time since launch month, wasnt expecting much however i cannot deny that this game has a certain magic to it that other games just do not have.

Ship livery should be kept simple. Neutral hull paints, such as the Sovereign hull, are preferred. The only figurehead to avoid is the Seadog figurehead, although the Hunter, Shark Hunter, and Admiral figure heads are best. Simple sails are also preferred. I tend to stick with white, but a subdued colour such as blue or black is also acceptable.

The blue flag is an absolute MUST, the only aesthetic choice that has a hard and fast rule.


Final Notes:

This role play developed out of my friends and I wanting to come up with a clever way to be as*holes, really. For us it's very tongue in cheek, an opportunity to make the game more interesting for ourselves and the people we run into. We don't have a contraband, we just want to see if people will let us on their ship when we yell at them with a dumb accent. However, you could very easily take this rules and develop a serious roleplay if you so choose. I really hope this gives people ideas of new ways to play, if nothing else. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, either for this role play or for a new one, please feel free to add something below!

As well, some shameless plugging. Follow my friend Alonedoughnut on Mixer! https://mixer.com/AloneDoughnut
