From the Mongoose Website:
"‘A pyrate is Hostis humanis generis, a common Enemy, with whom neither Faith nor Oath is kept… if Pyracy be committed on the Ocean, and the Pyrates in the attempt be overcome, the Captors may, without any Solemnity of Condemnation, hang them up at the Main Yard; if they are brought to the next port and the Judge rejects the Tryal, or the Captors cannot wait for the Judge, without Peril or Loss, Justice may be done upon them by the Captors.’
Pirates of Legend brings the golden age of piracy to life! Lay hand to your cutlass and stick your pistols in your belt, friend – adventure is waiting for you offshore. Band together with other scurvy dogs and take command of a ship and crew. Lead them to victory and plunder, or to a watery grave! Win fame and fortune or dangle at the end of the yardarm when the Navy catches up with you!
The shining blue waters of the Caribbean lie before you and the wind is in your sails. What you do next is up to you!"
