- Mar 11, 2013:-)
One might note that the Thieves of Hearts are NOT pirates but we do have a
ship. The Privateers (as they have a letter of Marque from King Dag,) do
have some overlap with the Thieves of Hearts. For the average person the
difference is rather imperceptible.
If you want the chemise pirate, go for it! Just dial back from the 1660s
to the 1590s. Sir Francis Drake (1540 � 27 January 1596) was knighted to
tick off the Spanish Crown who had demanded the arrest of the pirate
Francis Drake because he was so darned effective in destroying the Spanish
ships. The English Crown summoned him and then Knighted him for his work
on behalf of the crown.
Or so the story goes.
