    oh no it was true in the arcticles well its becuase pirates MUST sail in the light otherwise they will get lost so they have to wake up early like 4 am in the morning
    but dont worry in party nights the pirates stay up celebrating to the morning and get ticked off the walls :rumgone:

    Hmmm...I think now that I am a little intimidated by rule #3.

    Makes me wonder if I should stay away from Abassa, plundering as Captain & keeping ship "open" to the public :confused:. *Sailors on Abassa do tend to get a little pushy.

    WoW. The fact that each man had to "wait" so long to confront each other MUST have required a lot of patience & increased the tension between them. (Normally, two men wanting to settle a dispute would rather punch each other in the mouth...then continue on with their daily activity, lol).

    Nah ... I'd stay in Abassa to plunder (not doing quest so much), and keep the ship open for public because it's easier to get crew. I'll take the chance to get some annoying ppl on board (I guess that's a 'trade' for getting crew easily), even though it would make my blood pressure run high. And nope ... I'm not one of those Capts who would let somebody steer after he/she asks 97 times. I usually try to reason with them why they cannot, and if they don't give me a very good reason, no matter if they ask me 201 times (yea, I'm kind of 'mean' - or should I say - firm), I'm still not gonna let them steer. I just ignore them and when I'm ready to port, they'd go.

    lol if someone asks to steer my ship, i say this: Did you buy this ship? No, you didn't. I did. So I steer it. You buy yourself a war frigate if you want to steer one. I coughed up 60,000 gold for this ship. You must do the same :D

    As far as the best, I am still not sure as to which Captain's code I would pick over all of the others. However, I can definitely say for certain that I would eliminate the Articles of John Gow because of the following clause he states below:
    I mean, who does he think he is; William Wallace? :confused:

    There is British Office sailing, The Sea Fury, and he violated the Code #7. That yellow belly rat sunk EITC Sentinel. With no room for a sloop, he squeezed like a roach and tookme loot. Ye Be Properly Warned.

    Rules and Laws aboard the ship were important to the democracy of the ship most pirate ships everything was put to a vote. It was its own country at sea so to speak. When you gave your life up for the life of piracy you gave away your citizenship to whatever nation you came from and had no home. That ship became your home. That was your new nation and family. Pirates were not what we see on tv neither were many other historical archetypes such as cowboys and outlaws, or Native Americans.
    Pirates are protrayed as being brutish outlaws and thugs of the high seas who stammer around drunkenly and only make shore in search of more rum and women.
    In reality that was not all that possible. They were hard working men many of whom had made mistakes in civilized society and attained felonies and therefore were unfit for employment. Many civilized governments such as the British especially and the French were very very oppressive.
    Some Pirates took to sea after being forcibly discharged from their nations navy for petty crimes that racked up higher charges. Then again some of the men saw more opportunity taking merchant ships than they could ever find at home. As for Pirate Captains, these were men who at some point where high ranking officers in the navy, or perhaps slaves on a slave ship who revolted and took over the ship as was the case of some pirates, or even just poor folk who grew up hungry and watched as children while the food from local farms was carted up ramps on to cargo vessels and shipped across oceans and seas while their families starved dreaming of a nothing more than a day when they could dress in fancy coats and not be punished for simply wanting a single apple from a barrel of 300.
