The Pyrate Union!

Sometimes ye find treasure in the most unexpected places. A sail on the horizon brings not just pieces of eight but an unexpected and welcome ally. A reminder that friends can be far away but closer than you ever thought. There be power in numbers and strength in shared adventure. Capt. John Swallow you be an honorable and decent man. May the wind be always at your back and your brethren by your side. Keep to the code! Blackbeard's Law
