Waters of the Underdark: Dark Water
One way or another, there are going to be several people who get one one ship, most preferably they are already a part of a pirate crew (Although there is my girlfriend which will be playing a different background. More on her and her character later.) Currently, she is the only one who is going to start off of the crew, the others are going to be pirates and will have known each other for a rather long time. There is going to be a Captain, a full Drow, then there will be other crew major crew members that will be played by the rest of us. The DM will have control over the rest of the crew. The bot is a small sized boat, I don't know which one of these it will be, but it is large enough to count as a pirate ship. There is no "controller" of the ship, it's a free item that the DM has given us based on our group background.
Now, the major setting is the Underdark, the main idea with our DM is that there is an underground Ocean inside the Underdark, which is called Dark Water. The waters down there are constantly feed and supported by the ocean above, waterfall like phenomenons fall from the ceilings of the Underdark caverns, somewhere in the center of the Dark water Oceans, but for some reason, never flood the full Underdark, and only have an ocean like source of water down there. There are also creatures that live in the waters and caves down there, and while a vast amount of the Oceans on the upper world has already been charted and discovered, the people who try and chart and map the waters of the Dark Water never come back to tell their tales or collect their glory and gold. Now, after so long, a Pirate crew is deciding to test their luck in the waters, and claim what no other has been able to do, Map the waters of Dark Water and collect the untold treasures that lay in the depth of the unknown.
(Now, we know we are using some names from an old cartoon show called "Pirates of Darkwaters" but it's only the name as far as I know. No living waters trying to drown the world here. We are only using names for right now, nothing else. We are trying to find something to replace the Underdark Ocean's name, so feel free to give idea's.)
The Pirates of the Dark Water Crew
-Captain and Galad'ven's Mother-
Player: N/A (CPU, GM controlled)
-Mapper/Navigator and Captain's Son-

Age: 21 (19 inrl)

Background: Galad'ven was the bastard child of Shal'edin by a Male Human Slave sold to her in the Underdark. Originally, when she had found out that she bore a child, she had decided to drop him off as soon as he was born, but when he was born to her, she could not find it within herself to leave her heir to fend for himself and decided to raise him as a part of her own crew. Growing up, there was no torment or other amount of Drow society that could be found outside the ship, it was work or die. He grew up doing hard work and maintenance for the ship, and as long as he did a good job, he was rewarded with food and shelter in the ship. While growing up, his mother had found that Galad'ven had a natural knack for Navigation and Mapping, so while also putting up with the normal course he had been given, he had also been given the assignment of mapping and Navigation for the ship. He was raised as if he wasn't a family, but as if he was part of the crew, and he considers all of them family, even if they might not seem him in the same way.

Now: What do you people think would be Pirate Like Classes? I know Rogue and Rangers are givens for normal Pirates, and a Captain is normally a Warlord, but what other classes do you think we might responsible pass of as a Pirate? Please help with whatever you think would be a good idea. ^-^ Thank you for all the help.
