or take note of the times and turn up.
The pirate ship simulations are realistic in that the action is fast, furious, confusing & demanding as we fight against & with real people role playing as pirates in the 1770s.  The skills involved would be similar to the people going through the real life experience at least on a cerebral level.  The realistic visual experience of firing the guns into the opponent ship after getting into position, sighting and aiming the cannon at other ships

It's a good band of brothers and sisters that come along and crew on the ships - great friends at the beginning & end of the battles and at the after party in the pirate tavern - but during the melee its every man, woman and child for hisself! LOL ARRRRR

One dead Dutchman!
 

Don't be shy about coming along - newbies are very welcome and are assigned the role of gunner.  If you are logged into Second Life now, just click this link for a TP

The longship sea battles are fast and furious - with a two-person crew, the gunner takes on a very important role.  The captain has her (or his!) hands full steering and keeping out of harms way, leaving the gunner with the task of firing on anyone within range.

The brigs are bigger ships, the RL pirate's preferred vessel - although two hands on deck can still manage her.  The brigs have eight guns, so we need more gunners - if it takes your fancy, join the Jolly Bonny Anne group to be notified of battles, or turn up on:

After the sea battles we have a melee wearing the SPD Melee system - available free at the dock before we sail.  Its either boarding ships - an exciting fight to the death at close quarters on board - or we all head to the fort - breech the wall with our cannons before entering and dueling to the end - with swords, flintlock muskets and pistols (even the odd rolling pin has effective!).

Simulated pirate sea battles are now held online on your PC


Jolly Bonny Anne, Ship's bLog, Second Life, May '08
Bought and tested SPD longship, brigantine and HMB Endeavour from Admiral Chase Speculaas & designed a new pirate flag or battle ensign:

Jolly Bonny Anne!
Fight like a man!

Jolly Bonny Anne's battle ensign pirate flag
The Southern Cross is used to navigate by the stars to show due south.   Australians will recognise the stars from the Eureka flag with the blue colour of the original Eureka still shining a glow around the stars ~ the rebellion at the Eureka stockade equal in importance to the US War of Independence in their history.

The three crescents is a wicca symbol depicting feminist moon cycles & influences: wax, wane and full moon although a circle of full moon is not apparent amongst the many points projecting from this fearsome looking flag.

Four eight-point stars, three crescent moons make the design & to make the flag cut out three curved triangles and one smaller triangle in black.

The symbolism of the ship's name: 'Jolly' is a reference to the Jolly Roger, the flag of pirates of the 1700s.  Anne Bonny was a famous female pirate who was jailed for piracy but released because she was pregnant.  In prison she was visited by her lover Jack Rackman and greeted him "If you had fought like a man you wouldn't have to hang like a dog"

The battle cry of the Jolly Bonny Anne pirate ship is
Fight like a man!

Pirate's use their battle ensigns to enforce fear encouraging submission ~ Get this into your head! See this flag, be afraid!

Does this photo show Captain Cook aboard the HMS Bark Endeavour?  No, hang on, its Chase Speculaas making a return to Second Life to design more ships from the 1700s!

Her Majesty's Bark Endeavour pulls into Antiquity alongside SPD brigatine and a new corsair designed by Chase Speculaas - buy them here

ARRRR The Jolly Bonny Anne crew partied hard after capturing a nice galleon designed and built by Port Orbello totally full of Spanish gold & treasure she was!!  Now we may be pirates and surely dont care for taking loot that was already looted ~ we swear next time we pass by the shores of South America we be payin the chiefs a visit and returning their sacred objects!

Fresh Inca gold ~ long into Second Life and visit Privateer GaiaGirl's pirate tavern and try and find where she buried all that treasure!


Rumour has it Privateer GaiaGirl has captured a golden Mayan calendar!  We're still deciphering the code LOL

 
The best sims of Second Life
Second Life pirate & era simulat

Antiquity & Jolly Bonny Anne & Northfarthing

Antiquity  < awesome sea battles held on the waters of Antiquity, a showpiece simulation of life in a township in the 1700s and Victorian era. 

May '08 Northfarthing, a well known and active sim for medieval and pirate role play have just announced they have bought another sim which will be mainly water for sailing tall ships.  Visit Northfarthing ~ I did ask DonPaul if he was going to hold pirate battles and he replied not at this stage although they do organise great dances in the taverns

After the sea battles we have a melee wearing the SPD Melee system - available free at the dock before we sail.  Its either boarding ships - an exciting fight to the death at close quarters on board - or we all head to the fort - breech the wall with our cannons before entering and dueling to the end - with swords, flintlock muskets and pistols (even the odd rolling pin has effective!).

It's a good band of brothers and sisters that come along and crew on the ships - great friends at the beginning & end of the battles and at the after party in the pirate tavern - but during the melee its every man, woman and child for hisself!

Images for your Second Life

GaiaGirl's Photo & Media Studio
As my Second Life friends know, I work as a photographer / journalist in RL & 2L and am happy to do a new profile portrait for you, photograph your event, party or fantasy situation, or work with a stylist to do a fashion shoot for that magazine feature or prepare your photos for a model competition ~ this is the website to collect photographs or order your photo session.

My photographic studio in SL is well equipped, with hundreds of pose balls, animations, backdrops, lighting and three stages: a portrait stage with multiple backdrops, a model stage for large dynamic pictures and a white cyclorama for easy photoshop pics (if you want me to put your portrait onto any background image) – in other words its well equipped to handle almost any assignment from product photos to fashion shoots.
I am also available to do photos on your location.


The 1EarthMedia team is also available to build any item for your Second Life - from castles & palaces to telescopes & clothing.

Our full time Second Life staff can also organise and promote your event or sim location - combining photography, machinima (inworld video & movie making), journalism and website design.

Also, if you require a special build, we can go into the RL to make custom photos of buildings, vehicles and textiles to bring individuality to your Second Life item.
