The Northern Star!  It's really true!  I'M A PIRATE!  Mamma would be so proud... They even think I'm an "able seawoman!"  Bah!  Here I am surrounded by fantastic pirateeze-speaking lasses, and I am without my "How to Speak Like a Pirate" book!  Think fast... fit in...

Welcome aboard the Star lass! I be glad to have ye on board. No worries on being without ye book, ye'll pick it up soon enough! Pull up a hammock as we prepare to set sail!

Week One Mini, Part One

 

Once they had finished celebrating the magnificent haul of treasure, the CutLasses headed for the nearest port. The treasure was securely stowed and keen eyes watched the decks night and day as the captains and the quartermasters tended to their business in town.

 

The pirates were still far to the north of their usual haunts, but they needed fresh supplies to carry them back towards the equator and their home island. They had been gone a long time and all were more than anxious to leave the frigid temperatures behind. And who was to say what new adventures might unfold along the way? New lasses had joined the crew and there were apprentices to train. And surely they would encounter ships along the way that might hold yet more gold or rum.

 

Following their captains' orders, the Lasses took their turns ashore and were careful to hide just how much jingle was in their pockets. There would be plenty of time to convert their treasure into the other things they would need once back home in the Indies. They could use their network of contacts there. No use rousing suspicion in this far away place that could only bring them trouble.

 

"Gather up, 'Lasses!" Captain Starsapart cried. "We be nearly ready teh leave. So's get your gear in order n' if'n ye met any likely lasses whilst ye was in port, now's the time to let them know that we sail on tomorrow's tide. There's a pirate's life fer any such that makes it aboard before we sail! We've four fine boats with plenty o' room and many adventures ahead o' us. This be yer chance teh recruit those that ye'd like teh sail with."

 

Captain ShadowLion continued the announcements. "While ye're at it, keep yer eyes out fer any rebels that can use a bit o' our encouragement as they sail the choppy waters o' a new challenge. An' as always, keep those sharp eyes out fer treasure upon the threads that we can distribute teh those youngling or struggling rebels that needs it! Yer captains will have the spread sheet available soon after we set sail fer ye teh make yer nominations fer boardin' n' pillagin', an' fer the giftin' o' treasure. We'll be soon back in warmer waters an' friendlier ports - Huzzah!"

 

 

Start collectin' names as ye sail the boards. The CutLasses be back in force this first challenge of the New Year an' we need each crew member's nominations fer the takin' an' the receivin' o treasure!

Now, I'm not one to blindly follow orders (if I were, I'd be in the navy, and not a pirate - arr!) so let me be clearrrr on this.

 

Apprentice seawomen are the level 1s who arrrr pirates, aye? Anyone can nominate them for shiny treasury things. Am I right or am I to be keelhauled for even suggesting such a thing?

 

As for the other, that can be anyone of any level (higher than level 1)? Do we only raid lasses or can we plunder the bounty of boys' threads too?

 

:D

 

*sneaks into library and reads the old ship's logs*

 

Arright, I think I've got it. Plundering for gif-y gold and showering it upon the young'uns.
