I've a bit o' Scandinavian in my blood, and Spaniard, and Hun and Irish and many others.

I am a mongrel. A medley of various forms of land and sea piracy if you will.

And remember, it is not rape and pillage, merely surprise sex and aggressive borrowing!

Well, I shall remember this in the event we meet, and I mean, when we meet in real life because this is a topic where I have zero tolerance and no, I don't think it's funny.

Albrecht, I can understand your feelings on this, it has happened to a good friend of mine, something I was extremely angry about, which is probably why I continued to joke about it. I know the guy, I know where he lives being jovial about it helps (or at least I hope it helps) to keep me from taking action.

*Laughs bitterly*  Freedom, they cry!  Liberation!  *Takes a swig of some unidentified liquid; wipes lips*  Comradeship.  They think they can hoist a flag and go to a different world.  And they laugh and talk of their victories, and it's all in good fun as long as most of those bullets miss...And then they come back.  To what?  To a world that doesn't care, to people who didn't notice.  You try to tell of the wonders you've seen, and they smile and nod, and then they talk about salaries and politics and what's playing at the theater.  I wore my old coat out a week ago, and I could hear them in the shadows, in their business suits:  "What's that rag?   Why can't he just be normal?"  Well, to hell with it.  I wanted to be a pirate once.  But I was young and romantic and foolish then.  The world doesn't have time for romance.  The world has more important things to think about. 

Still...

*Stands up*  I'm not so old as all that, not yet.  *Walks to a cabinet at the edge of the room; opens it*  Mmm.  Bit rusty.  *Pulls out a sword*  Like as not it would snap in a stiff breeze...  *Rummages in a closet*   I suppose you have to stand for something, though.  I'd hate to be dieing and find out that I never stood for anything but the status quo...

*Straps on pistol* 
*Puts on hat*

Now, let's see if we still know the way out of reality...

Hear me, men and women of the air! I am Captain Haephestus Burnside, of the Reckless Abandon! I offer each and every one of you my most heartfelt thanks and congratulations for joining us on this enterprise!
Yes, the crown and its lapdogs think they have us where they want us. Yes, we are outnumbered. Yes, they may have bigger ships, but I tell you this....they have no liberty. And that is why we shall win.
Too long have we mouldered beneath the yoke, forced to restrain ourselves to taking but a fraction of our birthright: all the wealth of the world, and rum to toast it with.
I say that they shall suffer. I say that we shall make them regret their folly. I say that we shall take back the skies: for liberty, for justice...for PILLAGE!
If any among us doubt their mettle, then come no further. We shall not blame you. It is a terrifying deed, it is, to face a kingdom with a handful...but our victory shall taste all the sweeter when flavoured with the riches of an empire and the blood of a tyrant.
Cast off aft, and run out the guns. Our business now is with the Empire.

AVAST! Me scurvey dogs! Grin
I have already offered the services of my occult group to fellow pirates Smiley
As some of you may know pirates bring me many strange treasures not of silver and gold but of occult wisdoms hundreds of years old!
And for this I am greatful Wink
You have the protection of the Dark Kraken- an air kraken that exists not entirely in this plane of existance but has as much power here as anywhere else, I can summon it at will with the call of the kraken! *Roars part of the occult incantation: klatctk rrahlktk!!* Mwa ha ha!

Also being very bored right now I threw these together in photoshop Smiley

Is there a symbol for pirate solidarity? Maybe like a variation of the classic skull and bones?

Bah, no need to go meddling with the classics, you know. If it was good enough for Jack Rackham, it's good enough for the lot of us.

I say there drivelswigger, if ye be so headstrong to decide that unabashed vigor is enough to allow your birdie arses to stay adrift in the skies against her magisty's airmada you might as well jump ship now and save yourself the sweat of a (rather one sided) gun fight.  You coal bucketeers need defense.
If youre going to take on the skies you need to be faster and you need to be capable of protection, less they ever get a good hold on your location and swarm you.  have ye bunch of gulls set up anything to make your efforts anything less than futile, because if you have the mindset too you have my mind and my hands at your disposal.

Myself and my comrade, Chiavez Bellono (Weapons Officer of the Reckless Abandon) are currently desiging both personal and deck weapons of punishing power. If our fellow pirates help we can have the entire fleet armed to the teeth within a few short months.

I don't know where you got that "You" from, i've yet to choose sides.
Are your freinds and allies ready?

You'd have a very had time indeed outrunning the Zephyr...
