Pirate AU with Traflagardanya
The Spanish navy had managed to ambush the Fruit of the Devil, the ship of Rob Lucci, the Leopard of the Lower Antilles. He managed to escape them, but had lost a big number of his crewmates. Some of them had died in battle, but others had quit because they found the pirate life too dangerous after this run-in.
This was why there were posters in most towns on Curaçao, stating the following: “Captain Rob Lucci is looking for people to serve in his crew. Anyone willing to risk their lives on the high sea is welcome to the recruiting at the Laughing Iguana inn, on June 6th, 1698.”
