Piratas Del Oro
"Let those who parish be remembered,but those who denie, let them see no light" Guildmaster: Edward Darksteel
Edward's Early Life
The story is like everyone elses. It begins with poor citizens then they become fierce and feared pirates. Edward's story begins on Port Royal where he was born, rasied, and lived. His family was poor and had no noblity to there name. He lost his father at the age of 14 and his mother followed later that year from illness. Without having any job, because of the EITC, the only way of supporting himself was by piracy. His kind of piracy was small scale like robbing local stores, pickpocketing, and stealing off docked ships. Eventually, he and his cousin, Matthew Daggervane, became piracy partners. Later on during the year as they were roaming the island they met a girl named Sarah. Sarah Blademorgan.
Matthew's Early Life
Matthew Daggervane, an 11 year old boy, grew up on Havana, Cuba. Havana was a big spanish port with a strong defensive fort. His father worked in the fields and his mother worked with dairy cows. With the spanish heavy taxes they were just making it by. A hurricane went through some days before and the fort was damaged bad. Some pirates saw the weak points of Havana and took advantage. They sent a raid into the village below the fort. The fort then, for there own agenda, fired on the village below to hopefully hit some raiders. A cannonball came through their house and killed his parents. He then came inraged with the spanish and moved to Port Royal with his cousin, Edward Darksteel.
Sarah's Early Life
Sarah Blademorgan, a 15 year old girl grew up on Tortuga with her parents who were pirates. When she was old enough to learn she was also taught the ways of pirating. She left home when she was young and headed to Port Royal where she met Edward Darksteel and Matthew Daggervane who were cousins. They all started pirating together and eventually bought their own ship, The Black Reaver'.
They bought there own ship, and named it The Evening Horizon. They mainly had no crew and only hunted small merchant ships around Port Royal. Only using small arms for intimidation, they never used them as a weapon. Never taking their full cargo and sparing every crewman, in doing they didn't become very popular. Only plundering food, rum, clothing, and small arms. They took what they needed to get by.
Later, spliting the profits, they went there seperate ways. Edward went to the french port of Tortuga. He learned from many expercied pirates and navy retirees. He learned skills of maintaining a crew and sword fighting skills. The most important skill he learned was steering a ship and keeping a high morale crew by yelling at them. He then trained in many weapons like the pistol, dagger, and voodoo effects.
While Edward was on Tortuga, Matthew had signed up with the French Royal Fleet. He became a cannoneer, and learned all the tips and tricks with cannons. They taught him everything he needed to know about them. He had alot of spare time on his hands, and spent most of it throwing a knife at a wall. Matthew then became fond of small blade works, and taught himself tricks. One time at sea, the fleet was sailing toward a small french base on an isle named L'ile Milieu (Middle Island), and was suddenly attacked by the Spanish Armada. Remembering the death of his parents he was determined to fight. Matthew took a cannon with his crewmate and used special cannonballs, explosives. He fired and he could feel the heat of the explosive blowing up on the boarding ship. The ship later sank and they docked at L'ile Milieu. He then left the fleet and moved back to Port Royal where he found his cousin, again.
The Journey Begins
The Black Reaver
Founding of Piratas Del Oro
The Black Reaver Flag was also found along with the book. It was folded into the book. We looked at it and could tell this is where we should be. Pirates with a code, flag ship, and hideout. We were off to a good start of our piracy career. We raised the flag onto the ship and it matched like it was meant to be. Some say it was luck. Some say it was destiny. We believe it was a island we stumbled apon with a dead pirate crew. That's all it was and so we began as the Piratas Del Oro.
