Some of the information in the two hit may have to be over looked, because it is unclear if it is actually a reference to the killers.

He paid no attention to the slapping noises of water on wood but instead focused on his last journey.


This does not mean someone was rowing up to him, but seems to point out that the item he is floating on is slapping the water as the waves pass.

So when pulling apart a hit to look for clues you need to make sure you pay attention to when the killers actually enter the scene.

“What’a we have here, A little lost kitten?” The voice laughed at its own joke before continuing, “Not so mean now, are ya, Bart?”

The Captain of the once proud Catfish rolled his head towards the sound of the voice so that he might at least face his killer.


Mean Bart is turning his head to face his killer not to necessarily to identify them. He also seems to know that the voice he hears is coming to kill him, even though there is no indication in what is said that anyone is there to kill him.

The SK, appears to be someone Bart already knows, is goading the dieing captain, seems to be someone that hates pirates, and is likely hunting them down.

There are several pirate hunters:
Leigh Williams
Lilith
William Cleene

Many of the other clues in both posts are to vague to really narrow down the list. Everyone has some sort of ship that could be identified with any of the clues given about the ships.

YEAAAAARRRR, ME HEARTIES!

Does anybody else think that the ships attacking from each compass direction ties in beautifully with Solomon Caine’s name “four-winds“? (I know it is not his character name but that is still valid, surely?)

Also there is mention of red cloth, and he has a red flag.

Then there is this from Caine‘s bio:

“The Somerville also discouraged a variety of other pirate vessels from preying upon the British merchant ships”

The mafia attack was titled “Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?”. One version of this nursery rhyme ends with the line “HA HA HA, Not me!

Wolves are a predatory creature, and so they prey on their catch. This Captain is the type who defends others against predators, and would be the sort to answer “Ha ha ha, not me!” to that initial question.


These are the only potential hints that are really standing out to me at the moment.

Wow, I'm a space cadet - I didn't mean to dogpile on Vudu, was still getting my stuff together and missed a few things. I think there is a strong case for him as SK but no need to beat a dead horse.

astralfire - the SK being a pirate hunter is from the scenario. So it doesn't have to be a person who outright says in their bio they hunt other pirates. The mods can assign any role for any reason to any character no matter what the bio says.

That said, it's quite possible the mods looked at a bio, said 'hey, that's a good fit for our SK,' and went with it, but if you're going to take that into consideration I think you need to broaden the search a little. Maybe to people that have had their whole family killed, or seem to really be fond of law enforcement. And even when you do find a ping, like in the case of Vudu, I wouldn't hang my whole case on it. Honestly the more I think about it, the less stock I put in the fact that Vudu's father was killed by a pirate and he's sworn revenge.

I put a lot more stock in the previously posted quotes, though :X.

Wow...I just don't see anyone standing out as SK, but then I suck at this game until there are more clues/kills to investigate. And as for mafia...no way I'd venture to pick out any of the five yet.

As far as I'm aware the Moderators don't use a person's user name in TAC Games or Projects. But just for clarification Four Winds refers to Nga Hau e Wha - a spiritual concept from my belief system and the TAC user name I've had since 2006.

It's sound reasoning though, although Solomon Caine wasn't in charge of the Somerville when it operated in the Indian Ocean.

Caine's dislike of Privateers is however noted.

I'm still of the opinion that the Ginger Eared Captain and his Parrot Cohort aren't quite what they seem.

Straight off the press read all about it.
Okay mafia hit....
two ships one stays behind....
one that stays behind is a large ship.... person with a large ship----parrot dominic
the parchment---appears out of no where---parrot dominic could of flown the parchment in there
this could explain that how i think dominic could be godfather....
the ship stayed behind because dominic was flying the parchment of the black spot into captain westcotts quarters. Thus letting Westcott finding this parchment. the boat staying behind because the captain was still waiting on the bird to show up. the boat was anchered thus giving it the view of not moving. now there is only two people who apparently know anything about parchment in this. one is darsa and our friend parrot dominic. Thus linking again mr. dominic to the mafia as the godfather
Four Winds 16 years ago
I hadn't thought of that.

A parrot would make the perfect spy and wouldn't attract too much attention on a pirate vessel.

And a very cleverly trained pirate Captain's parrot could have deposited the parchment with ease.

Still can't see the parrot wiping out the crew of the Catfish but the Catfish and it's Flag (featuring a Cat on it) would be something that Captain Ginger Ears and his Parrot Cohort would find amusing to rub in the face of Captain Westcott as he lay dying on the ocean.

If the SK is Cristo then where is the fog his bio mentions?

I've been re-reading the kills and the bio's and this occurs to me now...





Notice that the ship hanging back only appears to be stationary - it doesn't at all claim that it actually is still. This ties in extremely nicely to the ship description in Vardu's profile.



First of all its Vudu
second im not the onlyone with a big ship out here....
third if you read my profile from my perspective it actually reads the way im meaning to say.
My sails are interchangeable-- like eli whitneys interchangeable parts i have two sails with the pull of a rope it changes... no where in there does it ever say i stop moving.... as four winds brought up a brigantine along with most other ships on this pirate adventure... need oars.... now yours on the other hand yours can look like it too. along with your captain ginger ears friend. between you two you have two ships depending on whose ship your using depends on if your godfather or him... now i could tie you as mafia and godfather from your ship... your captain ginger ears can be tied in as the sk... with the tang of freshblood. your pirate cohort has hooks for legs could be used to kick someone. thus leaving a metallic tang of fresh blood in the air. with the blood on his not clean anymore hooks. or he could also be mafia... the slap of wood on the water he has wooden arms..

Lil I was thinking that myself. Bart clearly sees his opponents and there is absolutely no mention of fog that is clear in Cristo's bio.

I can't see the parrot wiping out a crew either but I can see him being the distraction needed to knock men overboard. You get a bird in the face and see if you don't feel water on your back from a nasty fall over a rail

If the SK is Cristo then where is the fog his bio mentions?


thank you no where in the sk hit does it mention my fog.... no where in any of the kills doesn't it mention even a light haze... if i was gonna kill someone im gonna do it in my fog where you aint gonna see me darn it and two if i was me i would of never spoken to westcott

From what I've seen in past games, clues are very random. Most of the story is written before the characters bios are posted, so any clues mentioned are going to be few and far between. I think you're all seeing way more into this first kill than what is actually there.

And not all parts of the kill clues are going to be found in the bios, therefore Cristo could be the sk and fog may never be part of the kill...or it could turn up in the third kill...

Cirsto does have 'smell of blood', 'hides his face', 'attack artist', and a fast ship...all are clues I can see in the kill. I'm sorry to say I haven't had time to read through ALL the bios yet, but for now I think I'm going to have to go with Captain Monte Cristo as my first vote.

I'll say your barking up the wrong tree don't come crying to me when second third vote rolls around and sk or mafia smacks you you vote like this i'll go get ready to make my grave and set up for ghost thread

Ok, here's my two copper's worth. I think the 4 is significant but I also think the 2 ships being sighted together in front and mentioned first plays a part.

The only captain that has both a 4 and a 2 mentioned is Dominic. He mentions the loss of all 4 limbs and that there were 2 eye patches. Also, there is mention of the parchment and I believe that is mentioned in the kill scene.

As for the title...wasn't Jessop was born to a pig farmer? So, maybe that tells us something.


not the only one who thinks the bird did it see im not crazy enough to go for the bird
nickenstien 16 years ago
The lack of fog in the kills is hardly any kind of defense.

None of the kills mention hooks for feet, eye patches, cheese, Bristol, or wooden arms, but I still got a vote.
Vudu 16 years ago
it doesn't have to come out right and say anything about the things on you... i still hold my metallic thing against you and i still hold the slapping wood against your arms im sorry if im trying to defend myself i just don't wanna go out in the first round

Blood - the color, smell, and look on the Flag's is too generic a clue.

Mystique's flag certainly drips with blood.

And Mystique is certainly capable of stealth and subterfuge. She learned the ways of a pirate from someone named Panther Pete. She's a capable swimmer, learned how to filch and steal - and proved she is more than capable of handling men.

Does that mean she could swim across from a nearby ship in the darkness, singlehandedly take out the crew of a Schooner by wile and guile one by one with a blade and plant the parchment with a black spot in Captain Westcott's quarters?

Maybe, maybe not.

Just don't turn your back on an Italian woman who sails the seas as a Pirate Captain and commands a ship called the Morte Bella.
