Ahoy there mateys,

Oi be after a bit er ye help wi new gatling cutlass Oi bin werkin on.

Oi've been usin the mekanisem out o an ole grand father clock we pillaged offen a merchanman a few weeks ago to drive the devilish machine but oi'm afindin that the pendulum and weights get all atangled in the gubbins. Oi've lost three volunteers testin it an Oi'm findin it hard to get any more.

Have any of you fine experienced sea-men got any ideas?

My gatling crossbow worked better but lifting up the driving weight to the masttop every few seconds and replacing the spent ammo made it a bit impractical for daily use.

You'll be sorry you asked that question!

I still think me Throwin Parrot was a good idea. :fsm_yarr:

In Israel a cursing parrot is a current hot media topic. A rabbi ordered it either slaughtered or its tongue cut out. A Judge has intervened on behalf of the parrot (the parrot thread seemingly being dad, this looked the right place/opportunity to post that).

Tried a Gatling Gun made of me spare 12-pounders. The guy that had to turn the crank complained, so I introduced a recoil catcher connected to it.
Tore the other guy's fleet to shreds in a minute but I ran out of ammo that way and there was nothing left to loot. Consider that experiment a failure.

I hope the poor bastid didn't read that Swatopluk post afore he nicked the rum. Enough to turn the Nun of Dresden ta drink!
