Ahoy!

So far there are only two of my crew even on these forums (those being myself and my quartermaster, Malachai Armstrong), however I'd like to encourage more of our ranks to join, and it might behoove us to have a dedicated forum.

We are the Pirates of Ill Repute, hailing from the ever-so-landlocked port of Denver, CO, with members scattered across the Front Range. We've been sailin' the High Plains since 2007! (www.piratesofillrepute.org)

The dreaded prairie schooner Ill Repute is commanded by myself, Sean Michael MacCumhaill, better known as Captain Jack McCool.

We're always looking for folks around Colorado who are obsessed *ahem* enthusiastic about the Golden Age of Piracy. We are not sticklers for historical authenticity, but I personally respect it emensly, and I always encourage our crew to be, at the very least, historically mindful.

If you're interested in a drinking group with pirate overtones, we're not for you. But if your idea of having fun is dressing up like a buccaneer and going out in public to do any variety of activities for no other reason than to make people on the street go "huh?" then you may very well have found your long-lost pirate family!

Good day to you fine folk of hte sea. I am Captain Charity Ann Rackham and I was pointed in this direction from a friend. In all reality I do not know how often I will be able to come by (photo shoots, gigs, sword practice, the rest of life, promos, etc...) but as it was sugeste dthat I come by here, by a person I do respect.. Here I am.

My ship is The Jade Dragon. We were created for the BC Renaissance Festival storyline and have since then blossomed into outside gigs and many adventures. With previous crew mates trying to shut us down (I did read some of the 'should we have a crew photo album' posts and noticed the concern about pics staying up if crew have left - makes sense) it has been a long struggle but over the last 6 years we still remain in existence. It is a shame I had not come here until now.

Ed (Firstmate Cobbs) and I have been working more and more with our blades and have done the most travelling. The crew has changed a bit but the core group stays loyal. We are keeping the core group small and having others sort of 'in and out' as we need them....

Not sure what else to tell you.

I've been editting video for the last week from our last gig so there should be more going up soon....

Umm.. Yeah... Let me know if there is anything in particular and so on..

Gotta dash. Have to actually get a few hours sleep tonight.

May our ships pass peacefully in the night. Note I say nothing of the day.

I don't know why you find it necessary to say that previous crew are trying to shut you down, when in fact it is (or should be) a private court matter stemming from an unpaid personal loan.

Please don't bring that nonsense here.

Previous crew can be one or more of a number of people and the ones you refer to are not concerned with the personal loan and do appear to be trying to shut us down. They aren't the first and since a number of other pirate performers and business types have been (and a few presently are) in court cases or have had folks try to shut them down I simply felt that it was a bit of a blanket statement.

I have made no mention of the personal loan (which BTW, we offered to pay back but the offer was turned down - we have a book of proof coming with us to the court case for the invested BCRF money now being claimed as being a loan - not an investment - they claim it is a business loan - BTW not personal which is why it wasn't mentioned in my post.). The post was in relation to the other posts re: past members and having control over including or deleting images. That's been a tough one for us as there are about 3 different sets of previous members of crew (who are in images we use for promo) and actors who have come and gone with the cast (who are also in images we still use for promo) and it is a constant concern with our group as to how to balance the personal emotions with the professional image. Some have peacefully and gracefully left and others have not. This is a common thing and I was relating. For all you know I could be referring to two others who were part of the crew MUCH longer back and the ones you just referred to were never Jade Dragon crew anyway.. They were BCRF cast NOT crew. So... Yeah... Besides... That private court matter became less private when a mis quote on FaceBook was brought into the police by them, and two members of my team were called and told that they were threatening their lives. One now can not renew his security license until it is over with. His income is now affected and all he did was post his frustrations with society NOT the person in question.

Really.. I had no intention of publicising what is going on but I find plenty of sympathy for those trying to decided how to handle images of previous crew on a public form. AND... I have never done anything along the lines of what is being accussed of me. I really would appreciate it if next time, you write me a personal note asking if my post is what you think it is and ask me one on one, if it was possible to reword it in order to make it clearer. I've been in this industry for 34 years. I could be referring to anyone or anything.

Thank you.

Fer many the year I dwelt near by t' thee. A mere twenty mile east o' Montauk. That Isle "of the Little God", Mannasee. Though named for himself, the Dutchman Adrein Block. T'is true, on a clear night, from Mohegan Bluffs we could see the fires of the sentinals of the point of Montauk. Aye! And ye the same. Be ye asured, t'was in the cold o' winter or in the dry days of mid summer that it being clear enough t' see! Fore as well ye knows, thence is where we make the fog! Dutch.

Quick Question, exactly how many doth a crew make me wonders?

Although it would indicate a group with a common goal usually with separate leaders I think of the Greatest Mariner of All. Joshua Slocum. The first man to Solo Circumnavigate. In his Book, "Sailing Alone Around the World", he continually refers to the calm or statisfaction in the foc's'l. Meaning all was peaceful among the Crew. Yet he was alone. That would make this clear as mud. Dutch

Quick Question, exactly how many doth a crew make me wonders?

I think, any souls able and willin' to attend events. Many can state they sign up, but really boils down to who shows up at events. Could be 2, or could be 200.

A Captain-less group, Dogge? My goodness. Well, perhaps Fate be sayin' ye don't need a Captain. Perhaps ye be just a Society of Scoundrels. Former Pirate crew without a vessel to work and a Captain to command thee.

Tis lonely th' been sailin' th' seas without a crew, but at least ye be a pirate of your proper rite and tis somethin' t' be proud of!

I have a small crew on each of the two Age of Sail boards where Sol Picador is the pirate captain. Always needing more, of course... And "Before the Mast" has won two awards already (RPG Directory's 24-th Forum of the Fortnight and RPG Underground's 3-th Forum of the Month award), so it means I am still doing something well!

The Vikings - they were pirates too - game is barely starting, so Sigurd has a beautiful ship here, but no crew yet...

I wouldn't mind joining a crewe of some sort. My time be limited with the wee ones but some sort of online knock about crewe would be fun. I really don't know what I'm looking for maybe just a crewe to call a crew I guess but, I would make a good crewe mate as any be'n a bit of a ship wright. I'm no master by any means but I do know me jibs from me mizzens and sharp enough to not mix up the sheet's between the two. If there be a crewe in need of a mate let me know I'd be glad to join.

I was recently reviewing some old posts about crew searches and existing groups and thought I'd start an ongoing list of all active crews around the world. If you have an active pirate crew that attends events both public and private, please tell us about them here and we'll add them to the list. Please list any pertinent website or contact information, as well as what events you might attend. New pirates are always looking for local crews to join and/or associate with around the globe. Sound off and let us know about regular updates to your crew, and invite other crews that you know of to make themselves known here.

Crew of the Mercury

Back in 2007, regular attendees at the Fort Taylor Pirate Invasion formed a careening camp crew called the Mercury, so that participants traveling from all parts of North America would have a crew to encamp with when attending the festival in Florida. Since that time our numbers have grown and we have attended as a crew at other events across North America and Europe. We still meet every year at Fort Taylor, as well at regular events in Ohio, Illinois, Florida, and elsewhere. You can find more information about us here on the Pub - http://pyracy.com/index.php/forum/101-mercury-crew/ - and on Facebook under the heading "Crew of the Mercury". Our crew is spread out all over North America and we regularly re-enact the early 1700s.
