The HMS Gasp©e

The Gasp©e Affair was a significant event in the American Revolution. 

The HMS Gasp©e, a British revenue schooner that had been vigorously enforcing unpopulair trade regulations ran aground in shallow water, on June 9, 1772 near what is now known as Gaspee Point in the city of  Warwick, Rhode Island while chasing the packet boat Hannah.

In an act of defiance that gained considerable notoriety, the ship was attacked, boarded, stripped of valuables and torched by American patriots led by Abraham Whipple. Click here  to read more about it on Wikipedia!

pe668 - Buried Trash 'n' Treasure

Blood Beard's piracy on both land and sea had netted him a considerable fortune which he was forced to frequently bury. In keeping with his brutal nature he would also bury some of his trash. Most often this would be the original owners of the treasure but sometimes it was a member of his crew that was exhibiting mutinous tendencies or just one he didn't like.

oDDerFisken - You or your girl?

The pirate had captured him and his wife on their honeymoon on a beach in the Caribbean. But they were nice.. well at least they gave him a choice. With one of his feet he can reach a stick and turn the cannon away from himself before the fuse goes off. Only trouble is that the only direction he can turn it to, is the direction of his girl. And she's stuck because the pirates have put her in mortar to her waist.
What he does not now is that the pirates have put a big barrel of powder behind his love, so if he decides to aim the cannon at her they will both die due the explosion. The pirates think this is fair. If a man chooses to kill his love to save his own life, he shall die.
Meanwhile the mastermind of this little construction is standing out of sight of the two prisoners and having a last laugh of his genius trap before he takes of to plunder, rape and kidnap once again.
The time is ticking. The rope won't last long, and the fuse will go of. What will he do?

Tinn-man - Some very happy pirates...

These pirates are very happy, because they are able to get away with a ton of loot and no one is even trying to stop them. Of course, there is only so much that they can carry, so they were unable to steal everything in the shop.

Talon Karrde - Medium entry

Culver was a small port town in the Caribbean, and like most port towns feared one thing above all.

The threat of piracy loomed over the Caribbean sea, like a hawk circling a field mouse, numerous counter-offensives had been made by the imperial fleet but almost all of them had ended in failure, and vengeance by the pirate hordes.

Culver had been relatively safe from pirate attack, a naturally formed defensive ring of near impregnable granite crowned by a sturdy wall made repelling would be invaders easy.

The town had been founded over one hundred years ago by Daniel Culver, who was forced to stop on an island when his small merchant vessel,

The "Ocean Mare" lost her mast in a ferocious storm. When he made land he was welcomed by the native tribe, who greeted him with honour as the first white man to land there and helped him repair his ship, overwhelmed by their immense kindness he made it his aim to convert them to Christianity and make their lives and their island a more civilised place by founding the town of Culver.

Unfortunately, the natives would not convert to Christianity, they told Mr Culver that their Gods had been kind to them, and they had no reason to abandon them. When they told him this he saw it as blasphemy, and all the kindnesses in the world could not stay his rage, he and forty score imperial guards slaughtered the peaceful natives mercilessly one bloody night and from that day on Daniel Culver was hailed as a christian hero, a vanquisher of heathens.

The small island turned out to be a prosperous place for the new citizens of Culver, the fishing in the bay was good and the island was found to have an abundance of valuable granite, ripe for quarrying, as well as a small gold seam. In the years to come Culver prospered, and with a small imperial garrison was effectively safe from pirate raids.
