THE WORLD IS NOW A WASTELAND, BUT WE LIKE IT THAT WAY. It's been years since cars, telephones, George Bush, and stories of sinking cities with canals are laughed at. With the melting of the polar icecaps, all that's left of humanity are those that bit and clawed their way to survival: pirates. After many years, a small spit of land rose out from the endless ocean, and a small group of settlers found it, creating a place for those tired of sailing the seas to rest their weary bones and proudly wear the title "Land Lubber." This place is called ScurvyTown. Marvelous, non? Enjoy your stay, and try not to get sick. Care for an orange?
DEAD MEN DON'T SHUT UP is a multi-fandom Alter-Universe RPG welcome to anyone who wants to join. Applicants will be given the choice whether or not they want to live at land or at sea, but that doesn't mean they have to stay that way forever. On the sea are ships with hard-working crews; on the land are those who choose to live a quieter live, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's any safer--a city filled with old pirates won't have its shortage of crime.
We're really kinda hurting for characters right now, so please take a look!
