This is the new home for all of your Classic System Pirate LEGO news and information on the internet. For those of you who were used to the old Classic-Pirates.com, nothing has really changed except the way we will be able to present information, and what better time then now, as we approach the most exciting era in recent LEGO Pirate memory?
We've carried over a few recent news stories from Classic-Pirates.com as a sample of what you will see here, but they are only the beginning. With this new format comes a world of new opportunities, and you've got a front row seat for the whole thing.
Discuss the new Classic-Pirates.com frontpage in the forum!
Check back often and be sure to tell your friends!

Chenben's latest ship, Le Prom©th©, is quite simply a work of art. From the French flag on the stern, right through to the beautiful prow, this ship is packed with splendour - not to mention cannons!
Prepare to set sail!

It's that time of year again! The day where everyone stops and talks like a pirate! September 19th every year is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, so it's time to get those pirate-y voices going and scare the neighbours!
Arr! Or is it Garr? Or Yarr?

Ever thought, "LEGO Digital Designer is great for trains, but for pirates, it's terrible"? Well now, Cpt. Pegleg Blockbeard has proved you wrong with his new MOC, the Imperial Trading Post Remix - LDD Style. It is a great MOC, utilising clever techniques and ideas into creating an Imperial Trading Post inspired merchant port. You need to see this one properly to fully grasp its complete creativity!
Head over to Eurobricks to take a look at this Classic Set, revisited.

Oh no! It's the British! Not too long ago, our relatively new member, Daniel G, rolled out a fantastic MOC of a British 30-gun 2-deck frigate named the HMS Active. But wait! There's more... Daniel has recently modified this ship - for the better! You'll definitely want to check this one out!
See the original ship then take a look at the new version.

Let's thank him!
A while ago our good member ImperialShadows decided it was time someone took control of the Classic-Pirates.com newsletter and volunteered to become its editor. So now, it's time to praise him for all the hard work he has put into bringing us that wonderful publication every month!
Congratulate ImperialShadows here.
Update: Since this story was originally posted, the newsletter program has been discontinued, replaced by the blog you are now reading. ImperialShadows, however, has continued his news duties in the form of posting here and carrying over the graphics for the blog itself from the former site.
