The Corsairs of Sampetra!
Far across the heaving deeps of restless ocean, some say even beyond
the place where the sun sinks in the west, there lies the Isle of Sampetra.
It is a lush tropical jewel where seasons never change from eternal summer.
It seems ages ago you stowed away on the ship, Freebooter, to live a dream of
swashbuckling and skulldugery. How you nearly lost it all when the cook found
you hiding in a pantry. After slaving day and night in the crowded galley
peeling potatos and waiting on your new captain, Barranca, you stand upon the
bowsprit of the Freebooter, leaning forward as far as you dare to drink in the
sight of land with hungry eyes. A brisk wind fills the cream colored canvas
sails and causes the red mast banners to flap and crackle. You breath deep of
the smells of salt and spray as you glance down to find a pod of shipfish
leaping across the bow wave. Life had never been so good, and the promise of
ships, corsairs,gold,and plunder beckons more strongly than the sharpest ocean
gale. As the Freebooter docks along side the jetty in the harbor of Sampetra,
you are one of the first to leap to land. A grizzled trident rat immediately
marches up to you. "My name is Sagitar Sawfang, Lady of Sampetra. Barranca may
consider you his creature still, but I will deal with that later. From now on,
you will answer to me. You may join a crew of you're choosing here,unless
you're too scared to stay." She flashes you a toothy grin. "Oh,my- I see the
Freebooter leaving the harbor already. I guess you'll just be stuck here now.
Har har har....."
THE CORSAIRS OF SAMPETRA ARE NOW PART OF THE FUR 'N FANG ALLIANCE!
I saw a ship a- sailing,
A- sailing on the sea,
Her masts were of the shining gold,
Her deck of ivory;
And sails of silk, as soft as milk,
And silvern shrouds had she.
And round about her sailing
The sea was sparkling white,
The waves all clapped their hands and sang
To see so fair a sight;
They kissed her twice, they kissed her thrice,
And murmured with delight.
Then came the gallant captain
And stood upon the deck,
In velvet coat and ruffles white,
Without a spot or speck,
And diamond rings and triple strings
Of pearls around his neck.
And four and twenty sailors
Were round him bowing low,
On every jacket three times three
Gold buttons in a row,
And cutlasses down to their knees;
They made a goodly show.
And then the ship went sailing,
A- sailing on the sea;
She dived beneath the setting sun,
But never back came she,
For she found the lands of golden sands,
Where the pearls and diamonds be.
