My name is Jared Le Cras, a.k.a. ‘jazlecraz’ for anything LEGO related, and I have been a huge LEGO pirates fan for as long as I can remember. As a child, I was captivated by the sprawling pirate layouts seen in my LEGO product catalogues from the early 90s. Amazingly, these catalogues survived my lengthy ‘dark ages’ period and were a key inspiration in the creation of Ominous Isle.
