Land Ho!


Our merry band of pirates are sailing into Port 1 of the 13th Colony Bay. They are arriving back from a Robin Hoodesque mission to retrieve some of the community members' property from their homeland. You see, when they left, it was the darkest hours of the night, they traveled light and fast. A ship brought them to the 13th Colony where they have started a new life. Eventually though one needs "things".
Tired of camping, only having one pot to cook in and wanting a few little luxuries pirates were hired to gather some of their belongings and bring them back. Tucked away on the ship are tools, dishes, pots, pans, silverware, fabric, threads, books, a musical instrument or two and a tea set. We might be on the run but we are civilized.
In payment our pirates only asked that new sails be made for their ship and the old ones repaired. They would also like to harvest some food from the island garden, and asked that a few pair of new socks be knit for them. These are good hearted pirates but they are pirates just the same and one never knows when they might need a safe hideaway. It's best to stay friends with the good people of the 13th Colony Bay.
