Well, do you?

To : Everyone
Subj: Well, do you?

Cold-hearted. Cutthroat. Ruthless.

These are the terms oft used to describe pirates. And while perhaps true, this is by no means the extent or depth of our lives.

Amongst our ranks are scholars and warriors, poets and artists, individuals of all races and careers, from all cities and faiths. But we share a common bond - one that can transcend all else. Every individual in our midst can stand, and stand proud, behind the wheel of a ship. We are the captains of skill, the kings of the seas, the masters of the ports and harbours - as Sapience was well reminded when -we- sank the Kashari threat that arose in the recent past.

We are the Pirates of Meropis.

If you desire to be more than just another fool with a ship; if you want to learn what it means to be a real captain; if you long to be part of a crew that functions like a well-tuned onager, then now is the time to step forth, and see if YOU have what it takes to become one of the elite.

And remember this...

Only when the gypsy wind fills your sails, and the last grains of sand from the desert's end are washed from your hull, only when the inexorable draws nigh and the pall of grey death finally shrouds your eyes, will you truly be safe from Caspian's mistake.
