Bonjour mes frères de les Highlands,
Allow me a moment to introduce myself: I am the son of French nobility and a Scottish mother. I was born in the highlands under the rule of the British but saw no love from the British Crown in return for my feilty. Sadly, I was forced to leave my homeland in Scotland after an 'incident' with a British Noble's two daughters and several of his barn animals.
As a bastard child of France, I had learned the language and even been educated to some of the Cultures of France. I spent some time in Normandy as a barge Captain for Duc de Normagne before I was 'requested' to leave for a 'problem' with his wife and her hand maiden. Then I used my fatherly connections to join the His Majesty's Navy. As a Midshipman I was sent to the new lands as First Mate to Captain Henre de Balzac. That was a very educational post and I learned to handle a blade and pistol - something that has saved me frequently - particularly when I was found with Captain de Balzac's wife, daughter, several hand maidens and the ship's dog 'below decks.'
When my time with Cpatain de Balzac had finished, I was promoted through my bastardly connections to the Captain that writes you today.
His Majesty's Navy has decided that my penchant for the ladies (as it were) has come in conflict with peace in the ranks. As such, it has been requested that I find a Society, whose Tax Payments are in Good Standing with the French Crown, for whom I should act as liason to and protector of.
Therefore, please consider my assignment on behalf of the French Navy to act as Escort, Military Liason, and Trading Partener for the Highland Confederacy. Should you approve my request, I will be ready for duty immediately.

Yours,
Louis Bourbon

Postscript:
If you have recieved, before this letter, a letter of 'reference' from the Magistrate in Charlesforte, please ignore his nasty slurs about my 'activities' with his neices.


OOC Spoiler:
Naval Officer with established economic production. I am interested in defending the ports at which I am established as well as encouraging trade. I enjoy the ship-2-ship combat and I don't mind doing escort duties for Traders or accompanying a Privateer raid.

Long time player of EVE and WoW (though neither any longer).

PST player, interested in 10PM-12AM PST gaming.

I've been doing Earthdawn, D&D, Shadowrun, etc. table top D20 RP for too long to admit. I've enjoyed RP in tabletop, but in all honesty, I've never tried to RP in an online game before. However, this environment so suites it that I am interested in trying RP in PotBS. One thing though, I might Yarr, and Arr, and the like, but I don't think I could handle putting matey on the end of every sentence.

I see sir, that you take after your father in more ways than one. Still, as I have neither wife nor daughter, and my assistant would likely kill you if you cheated on her, that it is no concern of mine. We are quite pleased with the ever increasing support that the French crown sees fit to show us. Please report to Commodore Émile deMontfort at your earliest convinience for duty.

Monsieur, I do understand Le Besoin De Francais, but the details of such rendez-vous should be left out of proper conversation, to include letters of introduction. However, I am willing to overlook it this time and I do appreciate your honesty and candor.

And thankfully I don't deal in livestock and have no daughters in the Caribbean.

Mes frères de les Highlands,
Forgive me for the 'brutish' nature of my introductory letter. However, I have found it close to Godliness to speak the truth in matters of His Majesty's Navy. (Unless, of course, the question is: What are you doing with my daughter?!)
With great thanks, I accept your probationary recruit status. I will contact Émile deMontfort for my assignment. Regards,
