I don't like air pirates. They think they are high and mighty, and 'above' us or something.
We ground pirates is a little more down to earth... so too speak.

But those flimsy flying contraptions is a easy target and usually a good loot*.
You just need a few hits on them and they will slowly(and safely) descent, and become a sitting duck with only light weapons. Grin

Ah, a perfect place for the Air Privateer from Vancouver to rest. In a way, I like pirates. If you attack a military ship, or a merchant one, people tend to get mad. No-one cares when you blast a couple of skydregs out of the air. And they tend not to be that bright...

They can be very bright when you shot tracers and/or flares at them... and a little 'fiery'. Cheesy

Hopefully that will lead to alot of accidental explosions on the ships of pirates who have not a firm grasp of the oddities of the English language.  Smiley

Cold steel! They don't like it up'em if I may say. Takes me back to my days in the Scots Airmarine Steam Artillery, the Clockwatchers. Was a bit handy with the old Harpoon gun and boarding line if I say so myself.  Happy happy days, and despite what people might say, we only made the new recruits swing over wearing kilts on their first boarding party, they usually opted for trews like the rest of us after that.

So, now too the important part:
ways we can fight back


I have already mentioned tracers and flares, but they have that fiery side effect... What you really need is something that works like a gigantic shotgun. I use a number of artillery pieces and diffrent types of ammunition.(shrapnel shells, grapeshots, case shots, sabots with multiple projectiles etc.)

<Fading into view>

Ahhh ... this VernianProcess is a triple agent.  He told us sky-pirates, that he created this anti-pirate league so that we could watch over you, and that he created the Airship Pirate league, so, that we can plan our strategies, against your strategies.

I have it under this obviously forged legal document, that he is in-fact the owner of an arms & airships manufacturing company; who will in fact make a mint over us fighting each other.

<looks around>

I see no one is lynching him yet ... oh wait ... did I say that I was one of these sky-pirates?  What I meant to say was ... <activates Chrono-Corp ring & fades out>

Dear Gentlemen, and possibly Ladies...

Just like to report that I took a few pot-shots at Baron Marrock and the Black Mariah earlier this afternoon, to no effect, however..seems he's got some confounded arrangement of mirrors or some such affixed to his hull, hard to take proper aim with that blasted glare in a chap's eyes. Well, I'm over to the Rogue Generals/Gentlemen Adventurer's Club for a drink...chasing pirates is thirsty work.

Cheerio!

it is my belief that the jolly old pirates do not observe tifin or elevensees therefor i suggest we send them and envoy of butlers with a full tea service and that with set the blighters right or failing that a good old dose of what?what?dammned unsportsmanlike!thatsjustnotcricket! talking wil enguilten them to decent behaviour!





Are you sick and tired of our skies being polluted by the dregs of society?
Do you find your self hesitant to go outside for fear of an airborne attack?
Do your children refuse to walk home alone, dreading the thought of being abducted... or even worse... seduced by air piracy!

Then it sounds like you belong in:
The Anti-Air Pirate Brigade!

Discuss with fellow victims of air piracy, ways we can fight back and reclaim the skies!

A strangely smelling cake with green icing arrives at the ever-so-secret HQ of the Anti-Air Pirate Brigade via a shady courier. There is a smudged note attached with disgustingly bad handwriting, with most words over three characters spelled incorrectly, that reads thusly:

It becomes evident why the courier fled so quickly upon delivering the cake, as it is faintly ticking.

Ah excellent, cake. I'll cut, now, who'd like a slice?

*cut, cut, cut*

....It's a bomb!  Shocked We couldn't have asked for a better present! It's even armed to add to the fun. I'll just de-activate this...

*Snip*

I say, you there! Would you like some cake? Convey our gratitude to the sender!
