Prisoner Escape!

Prisoner Escape!

Revenge! The redcoats are executing their pirate prisoners, to avenge their fallen comrades. All seems lost for the pirates as the last three of the crew line up down range of the imperial muskets. In a last ditch effort Peg-leg Pasco kicks a banana peel under the foot of his executioner and jumps off the side of the building into the churning seas below. He begins swimming for land with one thought on his mind, Revenge!

PTVII Medium Entry: A Common Enemy by DarthNick

After the great Pirate-Imperial war of 1789 was over, an era of peace between the two enemies began. Laughter, beer, and many great stories were shared between Pirates and Imperials.

But anger and resentment still lied deep inside both sides. And instead of taking out their anger on each other, they found a common enemy. Seagulls. Loud, annoying, and messy, seagulls were the one thing both sides hated. And so began the great sport of Seagull Blasting, where the Pirates and Imperials would compete to see who could shoot down more seagulls using a cannon. In the background the big wigs of both sides were making bets, because neither side wanted to stop looking for treasure...

Peaceful life between Pirates and Islanders!

Peaceful life between Pirates and Islanders!

Following a chance discovery of a secluded island tribe, local pirates struck up a bargain to turn a small part of the island into a safe retreat from Imperials. In exchange for some treasure the islanders allowed the pirates to come and go and conduct their business on the island. The pirates were satisfied with the arrangements and enjoyed their time with the natives, even accepting the strange vegetarian sacrifice ceremonies that took place from time to time.

Who or what do they meet on the shore?

Who or what do they meet on the shore?

The ship, named The Seeker, sailed out on the 6th of August and 6 weeks later it had reached the coast of an vast country. One of the sailors caught the sight of a some smoke between the trees and when the ship approached the shoreline they could see some people on land. At this moment Lieutenant Jones is on his way to make the very first contact with this unknown culture. Will they be friendly and a potential trade partner, or maybe aggressive with no interest of becoming servants under the mighty Empire? The crew on board of The Seeker with Captain Brown in command is waiting with caution.

PTVII: The Great Annual Cannon Races! by General Armendariz

Who is going to win this epic race?

Who is going to win this epic race?

After the peace on earth with pirates and imperials, the Redcoats and Bluecoats also decided to give peace. But with peace on earth, what are they going to do with all those cannons? Well one day a man thought of a great idea. The first ever water jet ski! Simply a cannon with a seat on it. Since these were dangerous, people hardly use these but every year Redcoats and Bluecoats gather on top of rocky island and watch as men from each side compete for the champion of rocky island! Using these cannon water jet skis. These were the first ever jet skis so they had no steering and no brakes which means this race could mean death...
