    An undisclosed location. I asked my captors but they remain tight lipped.

    It starts with a farmboy and a beautiful girl named Buttercup.
    Then there's the Dread Pirate Roberts, a Giant, a Spaniard and an oft quoted Sicilian.

    Some decades ago, in highschool, a friend and i "inherited" a 23', double-ended monterey fishing boat - that was kinda sinking.


    (But not that big (that's about 30'), and not NEARLY so nice looking!)

    We beached it on the bay next to some other boats, rigged up a 4x4 and mooring line so it looked legit like all the ones next to it, put updside-down trashcans in it to support it at high tide, and proceeded to start fixing it up. A week later it disappeared - so I called the Harbor Patrol to report our stolen boat! They said "We confiscated that piece of junk! It has about $500 in fines owed - who is this?!" <click>

    Like all good stories, it starts with drinking and ends in drinking. No one remembers the middle on account of the drinking.

    Aye, I remember we had a pretty experienced crew. Let's see...there was Blackbeard, Bluebeard, Jack Sparrow, Davy Jones, Captain Hook, Anne Bonny, Long John Silver, Smee, and me.

    We sailed the seven seas (all in one night!), discovered new lands, looted, pillaged, met lots of sassy lasses, and drank a few million barrels of rum.

    Ahh, those were the days, matey!

    Squire Trelawney, Dr Livesey, and the rest of these gentlemen having asked me to write down the whole particulars about Treasure Island, from the beginning to the end, keeping nothing back but the bearings of the island, and that only because there is still treasure not yet lifted, I take up my pen in the year of grace 17-, and go back to the time when my father kept the Admiral Benbow inn, and the brown old seaman, with the sabre cut, first took up his lodging under our roof...

    My favorite pirate adventure would be Dai Tozoku, known in my country as Samurai Pirate, a 1963 Japanese movie starring Toshiro Mifune. It's about a samurai who becomes a pirate, yep.

    Well, you pretty much can't go wrong with any Errol Flynn adventure; and unlike some people, I actually liked "Cutthroat Island" (not that any of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies were bad, mind you). Of course, John Newton's role as "Long John Silver" in the Disney adaptation of "Treasure Island" (1950) is considered by many to be the quintessential portrayal of a pirate (and the model by which most people mimic 'pirate talk' [Arr, matey!]). And though technically not a "pirate adventure" per se, I must confess to being quite partial to "The Princess Bride" (so many quotable, um...quotes) so I think maybe I'll go with that one.

    I was wondering why the rum is always gone. Oh... That's why.

    It was Epic. The greatest pirate metal band of all time (Alestorm of course) could release a boxed set concept album around it that takes several discs to completely tell. Sadly I ain't been drinking enough to start telling the tale and sadly it involves too much drinking to remember it all well so yeah it's kinda like all the other Alestorm albums & songs. Just pick one and I suppose I could claim it as my own (Except the anchor song I ain't going anywhere near that one on these forums).

    Unfortunately the Statute of Limitations haven't expired on on my favorite pirate adventure. I can tell you that one time I took over a star ship cruise liner within nothing but a towel and some Romulus ale. It all began with a bet I made on Nimbus Three...
