ince the beginning of mankind, there has always been some form of piracy. Yet in the year 1717, the King had had enough. Openly declaring war against pirates, the King then issued licences to arm, furnish, and equip certain vessels to capture any and all pirates. Once caught, should the pirates give up their villainous ways and become law-abiding citizens then the pirates who agreed to do so would be granted a pardon from the King and the government. Yet when a pirate was caught and refused to accept the conditions of a pardon, they were hung, beheaded, or left in iron gibbets to rot. Ah, just because a pirate could be caught and killed by the hands of the government didn’t mean that a pirate still free to roam the seven seas wasn’t safe from death. any pirates died at each other’s hands. Some died at sea due to the fearsome kraken and sea sepents, while others died in preventable accidents. When pirates passed at sea, many didn’t remain in Pink Spider’s Locker, quite the contrary. Adding to the creatures of the deep, a very ‘live’ ghost ship sailed the waters, making it even harder to find men brave enough to chase after the pirates.
But they were found and the hunt began.
This is an alternate universe role playing community that uses asian (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) musicians as the characters. It's based in 1717, during the time when pirates flourished. There are four main lands in this role play: Point of Morte; Cape Millay; Dorim Peak; Port Royale. Government officials, such as the king, are found at Point of Morte while the king's enemies are located in Cape Millay. Civilians are then found in Dorim Peak and in Port Royale, those associated with the government, pirates, and civilians all live in the rowdy Port Royale.
