It's 1719 in the West Indies. The Caribbean Sea is boiling in the war and there is no quiet place ashore or at sea. Besides the political turmoil which leads the colonies at each other's throats, pirates and privateers are on the prowl. Come spend some time with us BEFORE THE MAST, on any ship you like!

The unlikely pirate, with a talent for music and dancing, is a complex and well researched character, with an interesting story. Albeit new, he has been very active, with 1.9 posts/ day on average, and the writer has brought us two other characters as well.
Congratulations and way to go!

A privateer snow which, after an epic mutiny divided the crew in two and the mutineers left aboard the now "Twilight Shark", ended with less than half of its crew and a shipload of pirate prisoners in the hold, turned pirate. Now it is named "Deliverance" and hoists the Jolly Roger.
