Ha. it was lots of fun to play the attempted mutineer.
anyway, that group went on for a good couple more hours if I remember. I think we had two or three people who were quite new to Cogg, and I'd just like to say, you all did wonderfully! It's good to see people use emotes creatively, it's sadly sort of rare, unless you hang around the people who use them a lot.

Ah! Thanks for carving these fun memories into history!
Reading now carefully all these emotes and dialogues, I find it way funnier. (cheers to Suzy with her wonderful and entertaining emotes). Back in action, it was hard to keep up with all of you))

Thanks again for this wonderful RP & feedback!
