I also think Aquilla is a good choice.

The main reason I felt Aquilla for him was he kind of has a down to earth philosophy and attitude. He's very much a nature man, a go where the wind will take him, likes the wide open spaces kind of attitude. Many times in the series you see him at odds with Trading companies and such that represent the relentless march of progress and technology. I think of the quote he has in the first movie about ships needing a keel and sails and so forth, but "freedom, that's what a ship really is!"

I think an attack for 7 is too much for a pistol, I understand wanting to make it special since its a very restricted special attack. But it is still a pistol. 5-6 would be the max for a pistol IMO.

I'm not quite sure why his range goes up after he uses his special bullet. I would think it's a one shot pistol. Or perhaps his range should be 5 to begin with.

I kind of read it that after the special attack he begins using his pistol freely as he has already used the reserved shot. Whereas before that point the pistol was only for the specific person.

Exactly. What I was going for was that in the first movie he saved a single bullet for ten years just to get his revenge. He would never use it on someone it was not intended for. That makes it a special attack in my view.

Of course in the sequels, after he already fired his reserved bullet, he uses his pistol all of the time. Thus making it a normal attack, thus the increase in his range.

Ok. I'll buy that.

I re-watched the first movie in honor of this nomination.
Parlay only works on Pirates, everybody else ignores it, especially Lawmen.
There is also a condition of Parlay. It grants invulnerability and escort to leader to where terms are negotiated and then the parlay is over.
It shouldn't be done every time, but it can be done more than once.

Yeah, and Elizabeth is known for it a lot more than Jack is. It's pretty much her thing in the first movie to just yell out parlay when someone was about to hurt her.

Parlay
Informal. to use (one's money, talent, or other assets) to achieve a desired objective

Parley
1. a discussion or conference.
2. an informal conference between enemies under a truce, especially to discuss terms, conditions of surrender, etc.
verb (used without object), parleyed, parleying.
3. to hold an informal conference with an enemy under a truce, as between active hostilities.
4. to speak, talk, or confer.

The first spelling fits as Jack "parlays" what he knows of Barbossa, the treasure, Will's love for Elizabeth, etc to gain an advantage. I think the second spelling is what word they are actually using in the movie. Jack may have only invoked his Right of Parley once in the movie, but he continuously parleys to distract his opponents and advance his goals. Parley is thematic to the movie source and fits the character of Jack Sparrow, er, Captain Jack Sparrow. :2cents:

A parley ability could be like the power on the C3G Beast card. I believe it's called Diplomacy. It lets him remove an order marker instead of attacking, iirc.

What about of instead of Parley we give him some sort of ability relating to his compass?
