Yes we are thinking 18th century. Here is something I posted on the facebook page
"Not really pirates. We want to tell the story of a kind of rag tag crew on this ship. The idea is kinda this:
The ship was commishioned by some navy 300 years ago. Then Pirates took it. They crashed it somewhere. Some other group salvaged it and used it for some time. Then it was abandoned again etc,...
I want it to be a ship that people have just continually picked up until its last crew.
And we are telling the tale of the last crew. Not even sure what their story is. Would be great to build some really fanciful journey a long the shores of the inland sea Lahontan.
Tell some tale of mythical playa creatures and a hunt for lost treasure
I think these are more "Normal" people, living a life at sea in a very strange land.
I want it to be like a book you explore instead of read."
We are looking for A LOT OF STUFF. Anything that would look great on an old ship, tell the story of a man/woman crew member etc is perfect. So laterns lots of laterns, ship parts, small old paintings, chests, old old victorian clothing, lockets, journals, cannons, kegs, wood carvings, trinkets, victorian style furniture (its a ship wreck so the furniture can be damaged), more wood, I could go on and on and on.
We need to gather about 1000 props. Its a huge list. In March we will make a full list and let you loose on the world
How are you my friend?
