Bloody Spike Pierce

Spike Pierce and his origins seem to defy explanation. It is said that a harlot of an indentured servant, on the way to Jamaica, after a difficult illegitimate birth, threw him overboard. A pod of dolphin played with the infant Spike, but quickly got bored and tossed him onto the first fishing vessel to come by. The fisherman awoke to a crying babe on deck, and took it as a sign. He was raised aboard a ship and quickly rose through the ranks to command a ship of his own. He decided there were more to the sea than fish, and wanted some of that glitter... READ MORE

I charm-swindled my way into their black and crusty hearts with my spritely shanty-singing enchantments. Rumor has it ... READ MORE


Bartholomew "Bart" Morris

I was born in the New World to indentured parents. I've seen the "Nobles", the high born men of royal blood who call for beatings of all who question their will. The lash and the cat broke my father's will but only served to sharpen my quick tongue and quicker temper. I grew up in the stinking back alleys, learning the ways of the club and the knife blade. I became a common seaman and made my way to Barbados where my taste for rum and distaste for discipline left me ashore and destitute. I acquired a musket and blade from the last Nobleman to curse me; he had no further need of them after I cracked his head open with a belaying pin in the night. I now lend my talents... READ MORE


Syd Viskus

Out fishin one day in the ocean Syd threw his anchor over the side of the boat and right on top of a whale. Both were surprised. The whale spouted and ran off in a hurry.

And when all the anchor line whipping over the rail had run out, the boat took off after the whale, which was surprising as Syd wasn’t rowing. Syd was in the water. But the boat dragged on one side of the whale’s tail and turned him in a circle so  ... READ MORE
