Well, where do I start? Well, I guess I'll start in Tortuga. That's where all the good tales start from. After being rescued from jail by Jack, ( Me memory is a little foggy of what happened before ) I ended up in Tortuga, where pirates can live free. And who should I find? Jack Sparrow, with his plan of getting his beloved pearl back. I Knew about that ship, it's a symbol for pirates freedom, not just " A Keel and a hull, and a deck and a sail." So, I decided to help him out... the best choice I have ever made. I remember I was on Rumrunner's Isle where another pirate ask me to be in their guild, of course, I said yes. That guild, the Corsair Covenant, is still with me today. It's the guild where I mastered, it was there when Walter was killed by Rott, it was there when the EITC wanted to take over. We shared such great times together, good and bad - even though the bad almost split the guild apart. We see it all the time, Guild Crashes. We were only hit once, but that was enough, to almost tear us apart. Once a guild 500 strong, we were now a 200 member guild. Because of such an attack, the Guildmaster had to change the rules. The guild was now an officer guild, no longer you had to be a lvl 30 to be an officer, you had to be at least a lvl ten. Even though we recoverd, we were never really the same. The guild, slowly, became quiet, unless the right pirates were online, and the GM wasn't coming on less and less. Sadly, our guild is dying, it's only a matter of time before it goes away; No doubt about that. All guilds someday have to end. But we didn't leave, there was something about that guild that made me and most my mates stay. Which is why I was there for over a year now. This guild was, and still is, family to us. So why are we still here? It's because of loyal friends, which brings us to the good times, Like having ship races, or helping each other out on quest, or just simply talking. If we keep doing this, there's hope to bring our guild back to where it was before.... a family. If we can come back, we can make it in just about everything... My name is Basil Darkratte, and this is my story.
