Across the island, talking drums thump and coconut radios buzz. In every language, the message is the same. Pirates are on the move.

Oh woe, woe to Shartak! For the pirates, though grown fat with plunder and lazy with drink, are coming, oh yes, how they are coming! With cutlass and pistol, with eyepatch and parrot, they move across the jungles and shores, hooting and hollering with a stench most unholy!

Hide not your daughters, bury not your gold! They have not come for such temporal pleasures! Oh no, they seek something vastly more insubstantial... something, dare I say... eldritch! For they seek the Goode Shipe Lollypop and none shall stop them.

Captain Low of the newly incorporated Pirate Low Command seeks to bring glory to his command! OpiumJoe, lost in opium-addled phantasies, has promised to swallow a ghost whole! So too has some random pirate OpiumJoe met in Club Palermo who's name he has forgotten in his opium-swallowings! Probably the Prisoner!

Who else shall join this motley assortment? Sign your X on the post, scallywags, or mark yourself forever as a landlubber and parrot-fondler.

Also, would some wealthy benefactor care to put up some cash to maybe hire the NAMG to act as scouts/spotters/assault troops? We could bring back ghost slaves in trade.

Captain Low stands on the northern shore and takes a swig from an old, blackened bottle of rum, his blistered lips tearing themselves into a tangled sneer.

Argh, the Good Ship Lollypop, whar she blow? My hands be sore from shark stranglin' and the bottoms of my feet be blistered clean off from wadin' the shallows in new boots. I's got me some scores to pick and bones to settle with Captain Briggs and his crew, that be for truth. Any free-booter worth his salt best make his'selves known, lest you aim t' body surf back, barnacled and bloodied, with the black tide. Mayhaps I's just warshed up here m'self, but ole Captain Low be havin' his eye on you 'wags, you can set y'er watch and warrant on it.

They say you can't take it with you, so let's free these spirits of their burden and send 'em back to Davy Jones.

OOC: Most of the NAMG may be currently working for Giovanni Machetti in York. Not to say none would take the job, just that it might be a clash of interests.

I'm for hire, but I only take payment in advance. Bit low on gold after the mutiny. In retrospect, hiring the entire crew from Skull Island, then providing poison berries and bottles of salt water as the only supplies was naive.

Please find enclosed my résumé. It can be summarised as killing people and being killed by people.

Call it 50 gold and a bottle of rum for Pollyanna.

I'll offer 50 gold to fund the services of a scout for the Ghost Ship. You'd have to come to Durham for the gold, though.

Mortis: Well, I'm no pirate, but I was, sometime ago, assigned to research The Ghost Ship. Maybe I could aid a scout in locating and tracking the ship?

In the interests of scientific research C Whitty throws in 50 gc to help fund the scouting

She sure has strayed far from where I last spotted her.
It'll take some time to make the trip.

Captain Jacobi is on the ship right now, although I have to say Pistols are an absolute pain to find.

I have nothing to provide for funding, although I would appreciate a heal.

It's north of the Durham peninsula.

Anyone got a new GPS fix? I got dumped.
