Pirates of the Endless Horizon

The largest pirate guild of Brexeamar. They oversee both the Sea Wolves and the High ‘N Dry. They have 8 codes, agreed upon by the 8 Pirate Lords.

Public Agenda

The 8 Pirate Lords came together and created their code. There are 8 Tenets to the code. They are as follows: 1. Every man shall have an equal vote in affairs of moment. He shall have an equal title to the fresh provisions or strong liquors at any time seized, and shall use them at leisure unless a scarcity makes it necessary for the common good that a retrenchment may be voted. 2. Every man shall be called fairly in turn by the list on board of prizes, because over and above their proper share, they are allowed a shift of clothes. But if they defraud the company to the value of even one dollar in plate, jewels, or money, they shall be marooned. If any man rob another, he shall have his nose and ears slit, and be put ashore where he shall be sure to encounter hardships. 3. None shall game for money, either with dice nor cards. 4. Each man shall keep his piece, cutlass and pistols, at all times clean and ready for action. 5. No boy nor woman shall be allowed amongst them. If any man shall be found seducing one of the latter sex and carrying her to sea in disguise, he shall suffer death. 6. He that shall desert the ship or his quarters in the time of battle shall be punished by death or marooning. 7. None shall strike another on board the ship, but every man's quarrel shall be ended onshore by sword or pistol in this manner: at the word of command from the Quartermaster, each man being previously placed back to back, shall turn and fire immediately. If any man does not, the Quartermaster shall knock the piece out of his hand. If both miss their aim, they shall take to their cutlasses, and he that draws first blood shall be declared the victor. 8. The Captain and the Quartermaster shall each receive two shares of a prize, the Master Gunner and Boatswain, one and one half shares, all other officers one and one quarter, and private gentlemen of fortune one share each.
