Ahoy There! Celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day with Flames Rising

Posted on September 19, 2008 by Monica Valentinelli

Skull and Crossbones Pirate FlagFrom the very depths of the blackest hell we’ve come to parlay with ye about International Talk Like a Pirate Day. All that it requires, is that ye talk like a pirate, for certain. But why stop there?

You see, mateys, after ye watch the Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy, to study up on the lingo, ye might find yerself in a strange predicament. One that involves dice, your fortuitous pirate accent and a night with your fellow pirate friends.

If it’s a video game you seek, look no further than Sid Meier’s Pirates, a role-playing game of legend, to be certain.

Originally released in 1987, Pirates! received unprecedented critical acclaim for crossing multiple game genres to offer unique, unrivaled gameplay options. Pirates! set the industry standard for innovative game design with its unique blend of open-ended role-playing, real-time adventures and thrilling action sequences.

For the kiddies, one cannot forget the pirate world in Kingdom Hearts II, where Sora meets up with dear ole’ Captain Jack. ‘Course, ye can always create a version of musical chairs substituting a boat or a plank. For such a game, we recommend pirate music like Fanez-Vous Pour Noircir: a soundtrack for plunder and mayhem or Nox Arcana’s new swashbuckling tunes Phantoms of the High Seas.

If pirate movies, music and video games aren’t enough to fill your black heart, why not try your hand at an RPG that takes place on the seven seas? Pirates of the Spanish Main uses the Savage Worlds system, and delivers high adventure to those brave souls who would seek it. Buccaneers of Freeport, offered by the fine folk over at Green Ronin Publishing, is a sourcebook compatible with any RPG system that ye prefer.

Of course, no talk of pirates would be complete without mentioning a few good books. High Seas Cthulhu is a collection of the finest stories about pirates facing uncertain death (and deep-sea monsters) throughout the ages. If ye prefer a bit of magic and wonder, be astounded by Sails and Sorcery: tales of nautical fantasy.

So what are ye waiting for? Let loose your sails and set a course for the open sea, it’s nothin’ but a pirate’s life fer me!

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day from Flames Rising!
