I love it!  Silk Satine has a wooden leg and Ryven's looking for the rum.  *grins*

That could go both ways, lass... *hiccups as the rum is passed to her and she takes a swig" I likes me rum... and Ryven has a wooden... something... under his trouser leg... *winks and gets off barrel to move across the deck... tap, slide, hiccup.. tap, slide, hiccup...*



I love that dress! *drools*

*slips tattered cap off tousled curls and participates in moment of silence, and a quiet sob ensues for her fellow pirate*  Every pirate be guilty til proven innocent... sadly, this unwritten code worked all too well for our brave Sir Desan...

Sorry, all -- with a couple of people gone over the holiday weekend, it seemed better to halt things so as not to give away any details of who has what role.  But we shall, with any luck, start up again quite soon!  In the meantime:

More fun pirate facts

One of the richest pirates ever also had one of the shortest careers.  Black Bart, born John Roberts in Wales in 1682, took to piracy late, at 37, when the merchant ship he served on was captured by pirates.  Given the option to join the pirates, he did so reluctantly, but soon found he had both the skill and the taste for the job.  Voted captain after just six weeks, on the death of the previous captain, he quickly became one of the most feared pirates in the Caribbean, and when he was known to be in the area, other ships would refuse to sail.

He was almost fearless in his escapades, rarely passing up a ship in favour of an easier target, as his contemporaries often did.  One ship alone netted him some 40,000 pounds in gold and jewels, at a time when one could rent a good house in London for just 10 pounds a year, and a carpenter might earn about 39 pounds a year.  Roughly speaking, that one haul was worth, in today's money, approximately 6 million pounds, or $9.8 million U.S. dollars.

But though his fame and skill burned brightly, they also burned briefly.  Just four years after he began his second, daring career, he was killed by grapeshot during a skirmish with the H.M.S. Swallow.  His crew, obeying his last wish, weighted down his body and buried him at sea, so that the captain of the Swallow would not have the pleasure of displaying the infamous Black Bart's corpse.

Sweet!  Interesting facts.  I went to see the Pirates of the Black Flag exhibit in the history museum in my state.  We apparently have the largest collection of artifacts from the Queen Anne's Revenge.  It was quite interesting to visit.

My first order as captain is to change the crew's uniform!  Women get two pasteys and a thong while men get a jockstrap.  Both will be in black with a jolly roger embroidered on them.  XD
