There could be like a Pirates Wheel.

Like you pay like a certain amount of gold, like 1000 gold (or some amount of gold) per spin.

The things you could land on would be like:

"Your (ship/radar/cannons/crew/observation/hull/ or navigation) has just been upgraded!"

"Your (ship/radar/cannons/crew/observation/hull/ or navigation) has just been downgraded. :("

"You just won *place prize here*!"


Also, simple stuff like:

"Ouch, there's a leak in your ship, letting out 500 of your gold."

"Congratulations, you found a treasure chest with 1,200 gold in it!"

or something like

"You find a chest and open it, but sadly there is nothing in it."



Lol anything you want really could be placed on the wheel.

You could probably make it so that you can only spin once a day, 3 times a week, whatever you want...


That's my suggestion, hope some of you like it, I know I would :D.

I was thinking of in towns you can go to a bar and play pirate games.....ie Jack Sparrow's Shoot the undead Monkey, Catch the bottle of Rum, etc.... where you have to bet your gold to make more....

1) Put a search engine on the homepage. I would happily come here to search, and maybe you can make money through google adsense or something similar.

2) Sell advertising and e-mail ads to members. Members could choose to accept or not accept ads, and when we receive one, each ad we click on is worth XX amount of gold. Advertisers happy, pirates happy, PTW happy.

**BUMP**

We've put the search engine up, so everyone please use it to help out PTW! :-)

I am looking into the possibilities of some of these suggestions... Please suggest others if you have them.

My wrists hurt from all the coding I've been doing recently, though, so I may have to take a break for a little while. :-)

i like KDs wheel of fortune idea... perhaps give every pirate 1 spin per week

and have the option of pirates buying spins for a reasonable price, say 5 spins for $5 or whatever is deemed reasonable according to the prizes given

hey i didn't know about the search engine, cc you should put it on the members page as well so we dont have to logout to use it ;)

I like the wheel idea, maybe a contest for the most original twist each month, with what else gold dabloons reward money!

What good Sea Fairing town is complete without a tavern to wet me whistle with a pint of Ale? And to do a little pirate to pirate trading? Maybe I trade ye a cannon for some of you crewmates?

Well. How about a 50/50 bet kind of thing with another player? Let's say you bet a certain amount of "gold pieces" and whoever wins get's both halves?

how about playing a hand of poker or a game of dice in a tavern? By using your gold findings, Play to win a free upgrade or a day of no one plundering you etc...maybe even just plain gold. Something that would take the bite off that big loss from the big hitters. It would be nice to have something else out there similar to sinking a ship whereas you can get a decent lump sum.

Different taverns could have different prize options...like searching for pearls..extra moves, money and prizes

An idea we were throwing around on the chat be able to accumilate the fame resets and or sell amongst ourselves so that the ones we dont need get wasted by being used immediately would also make it a little tougher for the long time players to plunder as much from the newbies just and idea for consideration.....TheFred 8)
