One crew. One Gilded Voyage. One goal. The wisecracking Captain Welyn and his crewmates – privateer Pace22, corsair Cobbobles and the surreptitious Summit1g – concocted an incredibly ambitious plan: hijack the haul from a coveted Gilded Voyage.
Reports from those involved painted a devilish picture. With an infiltrator hidden aboard the enemy Galleon, Welyn’s crew began tracking their blissfully unaware quarry. When the team confirmed the end location of their mark’s Voyage, a plan began to form and roles were designated. Each member stationed themselves and lay in wait to strike.
Finally, the chase for the Athena’s Chests began. The thieves caught up to their target ship as its crew unloaded cargo, making a mad dash for the tavern. One pirate evaded capture to turn in their loot, but our heisters spotted another carrying an Athena’s Chest. After an exchange of fire and co-ordinated marksmanship, the rival pirate was sent packing to the Ferry of the Damned and the chest was swiped.
While the brigands only claimed one of the trophies from the Gilded Athena’s Voyage, the sweet taste of a task well executed made up for any shortfall. As impressive as it all was, the Pirate Times recommends that all pirates remain vigilant to avoid being stung by such brassy manoeuvres!
