Jesse James Ramsey, Gunman for hire and drunk. As long as there is liquor and some one to shoot I am a happy man. I will sail with any crew that will hire me, whether they be privateers, rum runners, pirates, or mercenaries.

I'm an adventurer across time and space, and am not a pirate. 

Well...not really.  I mean if I take something from the past and bring it home; the original owner is dead, so I'm technically an antique collector, right?

As for the stuff I've collected from the future...can you steal from someone who hasn't been born yet?  Of course not, that's ridiculous.

So, as you can see; I'm no pirate.   ;D


The truth is in the details...the little hidden ones =p

Im trying to figure out how to incorperate the new pirate hat I made commissioned for me , into a steamy sky-pirate hat.  I dont think they dress as actual "pirates"  though but .w/e heh.

I havent made a character as of yet, maybe a mix of pirate/tinker

I consider myself more of a private protection specialist (in the likes of PMCs), i was once at the service of the queen, but being at my own orders was far more desirable, and lucrative, for that matter... I now help airships, dirigeables,and regular ships (technophobic, retrograd fools) go from the old continent, to the New-World, bringing the shining glory of Capitalism to the British-American colonies (and my contribution to the ideas of revolution that seem to grow larger each passing day.)

Revolution? You should be put to death for treason with such thoughts!!

My fair friend, if retrograd thinking and mindless following of a symbolic figure of autorithy was a crime, YOU would be the one sent to certain death...

Now lad, that be a weighted question. Ya see, in some territories and skies, I be called a Privateer or a Trader. In others, I be known as a pirate. I guess I'm not all that imfamous either way, but I hope to be some day.

So ya see, I may be a rouge, or even a scoundrel, but what me title is depends on who you ask, and where.

It depends if you break the law a little or a lot. We have nautical law, but when it comes to aerial law, that is another matter.

Now see, I like to think o' meself as an Honorable pirate. Meaning when I was rewarded for bringing down Dainel the Devious, I got the reward, and then was handed a warrant, being told I had a 3 day head start. Ah, but those are good times.

I suupose it would depend on who you consider a pirate is. Some of those in th gov. can be considered pirates. I just want the adventure and maybe a few undead here and there I can sell after I decapitate for a mad sientist. Either way association with a pirate does not make you one, even if your paying your way across the skies looting a few airships along the way with them.  Does it?

I am a lady pirate, which is to say that I am only looking to have a fine time of my life while traversing the skies. Should I happen upon a treasure or three, I shall take what I like. I will not harm the public, for that would be quite unladylike, but I do carry a pistol in my purse.

As a privateer, any and all things done while under my captain are entirly legal and whatnot I assure you.

Alas, I am nothing but a pirating gypsy fool taking my wages for putting that smile on your face, if not lifting a bit more to lighten your load on the journey home.
Honestly though, this question makes me laugh since I own a shirt that declares I'm the world's smallest pirate :)

It's a pretty flag.  I couldn't resist "borrowing" it.   ;)

Borrowing!  Really, next time wash silk in cold water so the blood stains don't set.

I'm not a pirate.  My airship is an engineering ship. 

I do have letters of marqe and reprisal (and a small battery) from the USA... just in case.

I might have been a gentleman-pirate had my mother been a lady... and though the Earl's household did bring me up in a relatively pleasant fashion, and though the old Earl himself even patted me on the head in passing once or twice, I nonetheless harbor some resentment toward the nobility.  Particularly toward that half-brother of mine who currently holds my father's title.  Let us say that, though not of the gentleman-pirate persuasion, I am at least more of a gentleman than the Earl is.

As a matter of fact I consider life on the Pandemonium to be quite civilized.  We even have a chaplain on board, to hear our confessions after every raid, and we shed no blood on Sunday if it's at all avoidable.

A most delightful photograph, Ms. Suvius. :D

For my part, I am not much of a pirate.  I am, however,  a man of commerce. 
And pirate coin spends as well as royal... Better in some parts, even.

I'm the one who gets called by the local council to clear the skys of all non-essential shipping.
