Pirata Codex

The original Pirate Code was commissioned by Morgan and Bartholomew, of The 2nd Brethren Court.  

This Pirate Code was revised and commissioned by Captain Ned Edgewalker. If a rule in the codex is broken by a lord 3 times, said person is evicted from the Court.

Rules

  1. Live, breathe, and swear by the Pirate Code.
  2. Keep your Piece of Eight, pistols, and cutlass clean and fit for service.
  3. Never frame a fellow pirate for something you did.
  4. Treat all pirates with respect, even lower levels than you; they are still your brethren.
  5. Every man to be called fairly in turn, by list, on board of prizes.
  6. To desert the ship or your quarters in battle, you will be punished with death or marooning.
  7. No striking one another on board, but every man's quarrels to be ended on shore, by sword and pistol.
  8. Any man left behind stays behind.
  9. The lights and candles to be put out at eight o'clock at night: If any of the crew after that hour still remained inclined for drinking, they are to do so on the open deck.
  10. The captain and quartermaster are to receive two shares of a prize: the master, boatswain, and gunner one share and a half, and other officers one and quarter.
  11. Every Pirate Lord/King is to be treated equally by everybody in the court; the same goes for Non-Court Pirates.
  12. Every Pirate Lord must present their Piece of Eight at a meeting, or they will gain 1/3 or 2/3 Strikes. But if they we're already 2/3 they will be evicted from the Court.
  13. No man to talk of breaking up their way of living, till each had shared one thousand pounds. If in order to this, any man should lose a limb, or become a cripple in their service, he was to have eight hundred dollars, out of the public stock, and for lesser hurts, proportionately.
  14. If a pirate lord is inactive for more than a month, strikes or not, they will be removed and replaced by a new lord.

Lord Ned Edgewalker

Im Ned Edgewalker, Lord of the Windward Passage. I have a italian heritage and was forced into slavery at a young age, forced to escape, I murdered the EITC guard and became a Pirate. Im honored to be in this court, as it is the 2nd court in a row ive been in. I hope to help the future of Pirates, and for the generations to grow. Tis Be a Pirates life for me. Savvy?

Lord Jim Logan

Hey, I am Pirate Lord Captain Jim Logan. I hope to assist the next generation into making POTCO and the Wiki into a much better place then it is now, or in the past. I have a lot of experience with the Brethen Court, being a Lord in my brother's court, and ally of the 5th Brethren Court and King of the 6th Brethren Court.

Lord Richard Cannonwalker

Ahoy! I am Richard Ulysses Cannonwalker, mighty pirate captain! I was born on November 21, 1710 in London, England. My early days of piracy were along the Barbary Coast as a toilet scrubber on many ships and some coastal ports. I was eventually, however, captured and jailed in England.

After a while, I was taken out of England and jailed on a small, remote, Caribbean island known as Rambleshack. I met legendary pirate captain Jack Sparrow here, who helped me break out. On my way off the island, I met the fellow known as Jolly Roger, who had the mercy not to kill me like he did with Bo Beck ("but the sharks may not be so charitable").

From my escape on Rambleshack, i've had many adventures. I've collected various weapons and treasures spoken only of in legends, defeated many of the strongest foes that the Caribbean has offered, and somehow managed not to get myself killed along the entire way. I met many people and formed many relationships (some good, some bad). Now, i'm Pirate King of the 8th Brethren Court due to being offered a lordship in the court by Ned Edgewalker (and winning the vote, of course).

Lord David McMartin

David McMartin was born on Tortuga. His mother was killed when he was very young, and his father ran off to join the British Navy. This left David and his brother, Johnathon, to fend for themselves. They were very poor, but a friend of their parents, Harold Griggle, took them in. He trained them how to handle a sword, a gun, and a grenade. As David got older, he decided it was time he set out to find his real father. One day he left without saying a word to his brother or Harold. David have many adventures, but had soon found the sad truth that his father had become a pirate hunter. David returned home only to find that Harold had died of a disease and that Johnathon, David's brother, had ran off to find David. David soon found out that his brother was captured and sentenced to execution. David attempted to rescue his brother, but ended up being confronted by his father, who assumed he had become a pirate, and was forced to hunt him down. David ultimately killed his father, and soon rescued his brother. As they both set out as wanted men, they decided it was time to fully dedicate their lives to piracy. They soon split apart, and David was left alone. After a while, his name began to get passed around the Seven Seas, and soon enough, he was met by Ned Edgewalker, a pirate lord. Ned offered David a seat in the 7th Brethren Court, and he gladly accepted. David was officially a Pirate lord. He befriended the other pirate lords, such as Jarod, Sharple, Johnny, and others. Then, the 8th Brethren Court was created, and David moved forth with a new era of pirate lords.

Lord Johnny Sea Slasher 

Gathered from the pages of an EITC Officer's Journal

The Sea Slasher has eluded me again, after stealing from one of Kingshead's vaults. The scoundrel seems to be shrouded in mystery, although my soldiers have been scouting for information.

Last month, they traced back his footsteps to a small remote cabin in the New Orleans Bayou. There was an elderly woman inside, in which we questioned severely. It didn't take long for her to divulge their connection. She stated that there was a boy who lived in the bayou years ago, alone, who matched our description of Sea Slasher. Before he left New Orleans, the old hag gave him a cursed hat, which is most likely the supernatural power that has allowed him to evade us for some time. We killed that voodooist swine, nobody else will know of our discovery.

Lord Christopher Crane

I am Christopher Crane. Born in England to an English Lord and a freed slave, I was trained to use weapons at an early age. Due to a financial crisis in the family, my father resorted to raiding, a practice I aided him in along with my siblings. This eventually led to the deaths of my parents and me narrowly escaping along with my siblings. With that, we took to piracy, and as of right now I am the only surviving member of my family, having carried on my life with the power of cursed Aztec gold, making me immortal. I have worked up a reputation for myself, from a Spanish Lord exiled for failure to acquire a powerful sword, a popular mercenary, the leader of a grand military guild, a powerful voodoo practitioner, to the leader of a worldwide cult. A skilled assassin, resourceful leader, and fluent speaker, I will aid the Court in its goals.

Lord Jeremiah Garland

Captain Jeremiah Garland was born in Calais, France, on October 4, 1698. His father was a British royal diplomat living with his wife in the French coastal town, and, like him, encouraged his son Jeremiah to enlist in the British Royal Navy. In 1714, Garland did so, enlisting as a lieutenant. After fighting in Spain, Morocco, and India, Garland's regiment was reassigned to the British West Indies in the Caribbean, to fight the growing issue of piracy that threatened the British trade monopoly, the East India Company. For years Garland, now declared a lord and named a high-ranking official of the East India Company, fought pirates throughout the Caribbean valiantly. However, after meeting and befriending a pirate captain by the name of Richard Cannonwalker (the current Pirate King) Garland soon realised the corruption in the East India Company and its defending forces, and proceeded to betray the crown in favour of a life of piracy. Whilst on duty in Fort Charles on Port Royal, he personally stole a massive collection of important British documents from the commandant's office, and made his escape aboard his flagship, The Dark Star. It wasn't before long that British bounty hunters and assassins began tracking Garland in order to recover the stolen documents. However, after assembling a rag-tag team of smugglers, renegades, and saboteurs, Garland and his crew became even more notorious throughout the Spanish Main for their continuing raids and loots on British colonies and ships, amassing a treasure estimated to be worth £4,500,000. As for the stolen documents, they were personally hidden by Garland, somewhere in the Caribbean, so only he knows the true secrets of the East India Company. On Garland's death warrant, he is wanted dead or alive by the British Crown on the following charges: "High treason to the Crown, espionage, various acts of piracy, arson, and pilfering documents belonging to His Majesty". The price on Garland's head currently sits at £80,000.

Today, Captain Garland can most likely be found on Padres Del Fuego, where he and his crew have their hideaway. He remains close friends with the Pirate King, Captain Richard Cannonwalker, as well as other Pirate Lords such as Christopher Crane and David McMartin. Recently, Garland has been involved in several plots to assassinate high-ranking officers of the East India Company and other British dignitaries in the Caribbean, including a massive explosion magazine he has supposedly planted under the Governor's Mansion in Port Royal. He was voted into the 8th Brethren Court on June 18, 1746, representing Smuggler's Run.

Lord Charles Crestsilver

Hello there, my name is Charles James Crestsilver. I was born and raised in Paris, France. After my parents and I escaped to avoid the war, we were attacked by British ships (which missunderstood our French flag as a battling ship instead of a travel ship). We crashed on Driftwood Island and our ship was left there. After many more events (read Co. Sons of Liberty for the whole story), I founded Crestsilver's Army , came to inherit the Sword of the Crestsilver Lineage , and got my ship upgraded to an "Upgrade Vessel." My good friend Ned Edgewalker asked me to join the Brethren Court. I had always honored those pirates for not going after their own desires and discussing it out to make the best choices. I agreed and after many ups and dpwns, I'm back in. I may not be the traditional pirate, but don't underestimate my abilities and skill.

P.S. - I would like to thank Ned Edgewalker for taking the ocean where the island lies where my parents died and are buried. Please keep it safe and respect their memories.

Lord Jonathan Turner

Hello, my name is Jonathan Turner, King of the Barbary Coast. I was born on 1716 in Spain to a Scottish/British man and Spanish woman. After street violence in our town in Spain began to rise, we were forced to move to the Caribbean. I grew up as a privateer for Spain for several years working for my father. My mother died on Avaricia's island during an EITC raid, during that time, I was very young. My father, who was considered one of the best Spanish swordsmen in the Caribbean, taught me combat throughout my childhood. I mastered the skills of swordsmenship, marksmanship, and cannoneering at a young age. When I was 17, my father was murdered by an undead so-called mythical being by the name of "Jolly Roger". He also inflicted a curse on me before I escaped from him, giving me and incredibly brutal case of insomnia where he would appear in all of my dreams and terrorize me until either he, or I was dead. After my father's death, I found a large crew of people who were also cursed by Jolly Roger, but escaped from him. I led that crew comodeering The Golden Dragon. After recruiting hundreds of other mortals, we became an infamous armada of several vessels that would conquer a large part of the Caribbean during the Anglo-Spanish war and soon after that, we ventured to the Barbary Coast and ruled it. Although my main occupation is pirating, I'm also a very high-paid assassin. My best known killings were when I was a member of the INFERNO and OUTLAW guilds.

Court Headquarters

The court's headquarters is set up on the island of Padres Del Fuego in the village of Las Pulgas on a hilltop location, located next door to Nina's Tattoo Parlor.

Courtpic

The interior is extensively large, featuring a stage, multiple tables for the lords to sit at, as well as a bar filled with the finest alcoholic beverages a pirate can "acquire".

Courtpic2

The headquarters is mainly used for meetings between the eight pirate lords, although it also welcomes in outside visitors for appointments and other meetings. Unless your meeting is of extreme importance, you must leave a reservation at the appointment booth outside the headquarters.
