Official Welcome and Ship Roster!

Arr, welcome to the Urban Pirate Dragons, maties! I suppose yer wantin’ to know what this club is all about, and so I’ll be happy to tell ye so you can see why you ought to join our illustrious crew!

During the first Draw Yourself As A Dragon Contest held by :iconmegsyv: in 2009, I (:iconriverfox237:) and :iconmaverikelf: got to talking about her most excellent pirate boots on her dragonsona. This led to a long and hilariously ridiculous conversation that resulted in numerous inside jokes and the birth of a group of pirate dragons who run around a city full of mythical creature people in the good ship (aka speedboat) Burninator, pulled by a pickup truck with a cannon in the back and driven by a dragon who knits constantly (:iconflailingwings:). We spend our time raiding water fountains, throwing kids’ birthday parties (because kids love pirates! And we’re broke), destroying post offices (that was an accident!), battling ninja gryphons, and making even more ridiculous inside jokes. If you feel so inclined, matey, feel free to come aboard; we’re a motley but fun-loving crew, and we’ll be happy to give you a job so the rest of us can keep slacking off!

The only rule: No ninjas allowed! * And no alcohol beverages on the ship, please.** And no killing anyone.*** And whatever else I or Mav feel like telling you to do, because we’re in charge and that’s the perks. :D

Welcome aboard, shipmate! Fair sails and may the pie flag fly high! Arrr!

~First Mate Riverfox

*Except we already have, like, three in disguise and one I’m trying to get to join as our official ninja liaison, except he’s being difficult. So traitorous ninja-pirates could maybe get on board with, say, bribes. Tasty ones.
**Poul, stop hiding beer in the kitchen cupboards! I WILL KEEP FINDING IT!
***No, that one’s pretty straightforward, I have no disclaimer to add here.

The Current Roster:
:iconmaverikelf:: Captain/Co-Founder
:iconriverfox237:: First Mate/Repairman/Co-Founder
:iconflailingwings:: Driver/Flag Knitter (and unofficially keeps us stocked in dishcloths and scarves)
:iconyubria:: Official Bearer of the Bag of Random Stuff and Other Assorted Junk (OBBRSOAJ).
:icondoodlee-a:: Swordmaster/Medic (She also created the club’s official page!)
:icondragonrise:: Lookout
:iconmegsyv:: Ninja Spy
:icondragon-dudette:: Dragon of Hats
:iconpoul-tisbey:: Ship’s Cook
:iconsaouchi:: Navigator/Keeper of the Jar of Dirt
:iconyokoboo:: Raid Tactician
:iconshadow-hostage:: Official Deck Swabber
:iconcomic-chic:: [Job title pending]
:iconfiggeryboo:: [Hasn’t picked a job yet; get back to me on this, Fig!]
:iconghostliger:: Dishwasher and Official Daydreamer
:iconbaramin-fatalis:: Chow Recon and Acquisition (aka Minister of Noms)
:iconfox-frost:: Ninja Liason*
*(Editor’s Note: acceptance of position is still pending.)(But I’ll get him eventually!)

[[If there are any other members whom I do not know about or have forgotten (because you all know my memory stinks), please inform me post-haste of your name and selected job title!]]

Other Non-Dragon Members:
Moose the Undead Squirrel – ship mascot animal. (Undead state is somewhat debatable.)
Velcro the cat - Wings’ cat; may or may not be a ninjacat in league with our unofficial ninja liason.
Bobert the Squid/Galley Kraken (Is not as much a member as reluctant provision)

Heya, guys! We've got a new crewmember! Say hello to my good long-time friend, :iconghostliger:! She has signed on as our Dishwasher/Official Daydream, which seem like very necessary tasks to me.

In other news, the :icondragon-personas: contest is almost done, and tonight I'm loaning out our chatroom so people can hang out if they so wish. You guys should stop in if you have the time! I sadly may not be able to put in much of an appearance due to work, but hopefully there'll be some busyness in there so we can all have fun with our fellow dragonsonas. ^^

Keep it cool, ma crew!

~First Mate Riverfox

how do you become a crew member?
Doodlee-a Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Student Digital Artist
A lot of it was just getting to know the people in this group, then making a dragonsona. With a lot of us, we did it during Cheeko's dragonsona contest, and shenanigans just developed from there, haha.

You ask to be a crew member! We would also appreciate a drawing of yourself as a dragon (pirate outfit is optional), and then you pick a job that isn't already on the list. Aaand then you're in! We're a very laid-back crew when it comes to registration...and pretty much everything else. XD
TheEbonizer Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013
Okie them x)

Well then...

CAN A BE A CREW MEMBER :iconshaplz:

I'll draw a dragon me soon x)
Riverfox237 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
YOUS CAN BE A CREW MEMBER :icongrin--plz:

I look forward to seeing it! We mostly go by the rules set down by :iconcheeko-001:'s dragon persona contest, which is where this all started. Basically it's a dragon persona that represents you personally and you can pick two of three: flight, fire (or any sort of extra power; one of our guys uses electricity), or fang (basically super strength of some kind).

And what job would ya like, Ebonizer?

I think we need to bring activity back to this group
Riverfox237 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Also, welcome, new member! =D We are SO DELIGHTED to have you! Your first order of business: pick a job so I can add you to the official roster! It can be anything you like so long as you have an explanation for it and it doesn't encroach on anyone else's jobs. We're pretty flexible, though, so it shouldn't be too hard. ;D
Saouchi Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013  Student Digital Artist I said, I'm :iconneko-mata-01: ^^;
Riverfox237 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh dangit, how did I miss that? Sorry, Neko. XD I feel very silly now.

Heya. Sent a membership request but I'm not sure if it got through as I'm not getting the little correspondence thing telling if my request is waiting for approval/has been approved.

I don't wanna spam you by sending again if it's already gotten to you XD
