Comic-Con 2007 Interview by Ten Ton Hammer
IRC Developer Chat Log from July 31, 2007
So yea, just an Update on all things PotBS.
The comic-con interview is pretty neat and details the main RP Story-arc that will include 70 missions. At the end of the arc;

- “Once you get to the end of the story, I wanted to give the player a place that was all their own – an instance to cherish as theirs. So, I had the players rescue a town and in doing so they create an instanced area that is all their own. The cool part about this area is that the players will be able to meet back up with the “cast” of their story-arc. It’s pretty neat and should be fun for the players.”
He also described a scenario detailing how to get a peg-leg
- Gavin Irby wrote:
- "If players want a peg leg, I’ve actually created a mission for them to accomplish this feat. First, I blow them up. After they’ve washed up on shore, they have to go about constructing a raft to get back to their crew while they have this terribly infected leg. Once the character returns, they wake up with the crew standing over them and they let the player know that they have to amputate the leg. During this moment, the player can choose his dialogue options, between something along the lines of – ‘Yarr, this leg will be fine.’ and ‘NOOOOO!!!!’ It’s traumatic, but it also gives a player a sense of who their avatar really is.”
As for the IRC Chat, not much was said that was particularly interesting. One thing I did take note of was, that Isildur let the names of the first servers out:

- Here's a scoop for you: our first US servers will be named 'Blackbeard' and 'Rackham', and our first EU servers will be named 'Black Bart' and 'Bellamy'. Assuming, of course, no-one overrules my name list.
At least we know that... Blackbeard or Rackham

Nice tid-bits. Your own town? really? Damn.
If they haven't named the servers yet.... then it's going to be a little while longer huh? You can't just change a server name on the fly (last I checked) not even a virtual one (cluster), so that leads me ot believe they haven't built them yet.
As for the ol' leg, I'm thinking I'l keep mine.
