The below pictures are partial pictures of the CRIMSON PIRATE fleet preparing for war. All captains were called to ready alert in the wake of on the going implications that war lurked on the horizon. All goods and ammo were being stocked aboard as the fleet Commadore awaited the arrival of the remaining ships. In attendance were 8 ships of 10. Harboured in waiting were: The CRIMSON SEAWITCH, CRIMSON FRIGATE, CRIMSON SPY DINGE, CRIMSON MAN-O-WAR, CRIMSON FIST OF DAVY JONES, CRIMSON STING RAY, CRIMSON TIDE RUNNER, and the CRIMSON BARNACLE. All deck hands were ordered to report for duty as soon as possible. The spy ship was dispatched to report on the USN's, SKS fleet, and Queen Zen's stronghold and manpower. As the Crimson Pirates awaits the Marquis, "Declaration of War", all preparations are under way for that decree to be delivered. Beware the seas and lands of Sosaria, for the Crimson Pirates are hungry for action.
