Would they be good enough to be Pirate Lords?

Postby JMISBEST » Fri Dec 20, 2019 6:18 pm

Yesterday I had a dream about A Group of Player Characters whose characters survived The Fall of Drinax and wondered that if this dream where real would they have been be good enough to be made Lesser Pirate Lords of Theev?

All in all they fully owned The Class B Starports from Wildeman and Adventure 5, had A 75% Ownership in A Class B Starport at Kteiora and A 50% ownership in A Class A Starport at Number One and ship wise commanded their own fleet and 11 Allied Pirate Fleets that individually ranged from 6 Ships strong to 43 Ships Strong, had a total of 292 Ships and they ships ranged from 100 ton Scoutships to A 50,000 ton Megafreighter converted into A Fairly Heavy Cruiser. So do you think that if this dream where real would they have been good enough to be made Lesser Pirate Lords of Theev?

1. Wierdly detailed for a dream, that.

2. Thse imaginary characters are grossly overpowered to be pirate lords in the setting I write. Someone that powerful who insisted on doing piracy would be a priority target for the Imperial Navy. Not that they could support all those ships by piracy anyway... they'd massacre trade to the point where it stopped and be out of business.

But we've seen all this before....

The trick to piracy is to become legitimate, and rip off the tax base.

But you can stop and think about whether your post is utterly ludicrous before putting it on the board
