Hello Sara! For pirate inspiration the pub is abundant, I've consulted the articles and people available here many times. Do you have a youtube channel?

yeah, I do with 16,000 subscribers and counting! It's all anime-based and my most recent video is about the game, "Five Nights at Freddy's", but here's a link to my channel

https://www.youtube.com/sangonanami

and the first part of my show (it's going to be in about 10-ish parts and the actual dialogue doesn't come in until part 3, so parts 1 and 2 are a bit confusing)

but yeah, here's part 1!

Hello, everyone! I am Baidak (not my real name). I come to you in search of knowledge and community. Though my experiences in reenacting have been very few, and hours aplenty have been spent on researching piracy, I think it's time to get involved... and to learn more about pirates, too.

I make things out of metal and leather for a living (bags, belts, axes, swords, tools, jewelry, et al.). This is my connection to the reenactment community as many of my items are based on original historical material. However just being a spectator at events is getting boring.

By the way, "Baida" is the Ruthenian (Ukrainian) folkloric name of Dmytro Vyshnevetsky - 1516-1563, the first true chieftain (Hetman) of the Zaporozhian Cossack host. I'm considering doing a Cossack getup, as opposed to GAOP.

I'll write a post on the Cossacks, perhaps. They were the most prolific pirates of the era, as it's said.

Cheers,

Baida

A belated welcome from me too Mr. Baidak!

Cossack pirates sounds very interesting and I have to confess I never heared of shuch before. It would be great to learn more about this topic.

I wonder how the ships looked like which they used and when their heyday was?

I presume the main region of operation was the Black Sea? And therefore I would send an extra greeting from way up the River Danube, which is my conection to that part of the world - metaphorically spoken :D

Hi to all, My name is Paul Stokes retired member of "Rent a Peasant", Chef Lecturer turned Archaeologist. My interests are animal bones. I've been collecting Bone Apple Corers for many years and in that time an antiques deal flocked of a Mud-Larks collection off which included a number of worked bones, which he said that they were Apple Corers amongst many other things . I know that they were not, so I purchased as many as I could afford at that time. I've got 92 and since located 4 more, I've carried out some extensive research on them and proved that they are "Fids". I've given a paper on these to the Work Bone Research Group of the International Council of Zooarchaeology at their 10th Meeting in Belgrade last year. ‚Äč

Welcome aboard Mister Stokes.

It's interesting that so many rope working tools ended in the Thames' mud. :huh:

They were found opposite a Naval Victualling yard, East Smithfield, London and under the New Millennium Bridge. They've only been recorded at these site + 1 stray find up river. The Thames slit/mud is a good preservation medium no oxygen. Just wish I could import Pictures to this site

Hi, I'm Rick, indie author in my spare time. My second novel, Cold Steel on the Rocks is out on Amazon, it's a rib tickling tale about a metal band obsessed with pirates, who go on a search for Blackbeard's hidden treasure (it's not a true story) http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00ND9FQ2C?keywords=cold%20steel%20on%20the%20rocks&qid=1444070333&ref_=sr_1_1_twi_kin_2&sr=8-1

Ahoy me hearties. Thanks for the welcome aboard. My name is Joel, but in the pyrate world I be known as Benedict Rex. I hail from the colony in the new world called Connecticut, and am formerly from New Amsterdam, er that be New York City in today's speak. I'm 31 years in the business of law enforcement and took to that vocation as a means to not fall to the ills of temptation... it kept me on the straight and narrow. I was born 300 years too late, but explore my alternate pyrate persona whenever I can at faires, festivals and the like.

Jas. Hook,

I will start kicking people about the Ball this week. (I was in charge of everything in social media for it last year and am the 5th Pirate King of New England) As soon as I have any information, I'll post it.

To all of the new recruits, welcome aboard!
