    Once again the call went out for a hardy group of adventurers to gather with Captain Jack Passer on Buccaneers Den. When all were gathered Captain Passer informed everyone that he had been watching Blanche Island with his scope, and he felt it needed visited again. From there he encouraged everyone to join him on his ship for a quick trip over to the island for some investigating.

    This trip was far from uneventful as not once but twice Captain Passer’s ship was attacked by ships loaded down with pirates who boarded his ship and tried to kill everyone aboard. Luckily both attempts were repelled and all the pirates were slain. This only proved to everyone aboard Captain Passer’s ship that the pirates did not want anyone to return to Blanche Island.

    As the island was neared a new structure was spotted along with a boat almost at the same location as the one that was blown up a few days before. The structure proved to belong to soul who enjoyed the privacy of a quiet island and had nothing to do with the pirate threat, but the boat was another case. When nearing the watercraft a well organized empty camp was found in front of it.

    Captain Jack Passer boarded the ship to scout it as his party waited to see what he would find out. He quickly returned yelling that the ship was full of pirates. Once again the party was engaged in bloody combat. After some fierce fighting on the island the pirates were once again defeated. Soon after the victory Captain Passer found a note that stated that the pirates needed to keep the island clear for a shipment on Monday. Captain Passer decided to hamper the pirate’s plans by destroying the ship, so he lit some black powder around the ship on fire and a massive explosion engulfed the area.

    The only problem was that somehow burning fire was an after affect from the explosion and once again the party was engaged in combat with the living fire, which was joined by yet again a few pirates. As normal these threats were dispatched and searched for clues. A shipment order was found on one of the pirates that also stated that there would be a shipment on Monday. Captain Passer surmised that the pirates must be using Blanche Island to store goods before moving them along to the city of Britain. Plans were made to once again gather on Monday, June 27, 2011 at noon to see what will happen next with the looming pirate threat.

    Some of the party was lucky enough to get one or more of ten “Splinters from a Pirate Ship.” That was recovered from some of the pirates that were faced. That is sure to be a prized item from this adventure.
