Private Pirate Monkey Brainstorming...

posted by ttg_Stemmle on - last edited - Viewed by 6.5K users

Hey guys 'n' gals,

In the spirit of "tapping the hive mind," I've got a few enigmatic questions for y'all:

-- What sort of book titles do you think could be found on the Voodoo Lady's bookshelf? Y'know, things like "The Joy of Hex," or "Screams of My Father."

-- For reasons that defy explanation, we're trying to enumerate dozens of unique kinds of winds, things like "The Wind the Blows Off Your Hat," or "The Wind that Sounds Remarkably Like an Unhappy Echidna." Can you think of any others?

-- Lastly, what's your pirate name?

Not promising anything,
Mike "Sleepy Boy" Stemmle

    It has a ring to it, or perhaps a loop. :D

  • Just tossing out some ideas for books...forgive me if they've already been said.

    Animal Pharm

    Pirate name is Victor the Vengeful, because to the Victor go the spoils.

  • Book:

    I'm not that good a pirate, so I go by the name of Landlubber Luke.

    -The Second Largest Book of Voodoo You'll Ever See


    This is slightly OT, but semi-related: Is there any object in the game (a stick perhaps) that could be named the "Private Pirate's Club?" That would be awesome.
