  1. Arrrrrrr! It's pirate month and my first poll this month is all about PIRATES!

    The great thing about Pirates is that they can span ALL GENRES. You don't have to stick with the historical time setting pirates! They're really versatile when it comes to settings.

    For example, you have SPACE PIRATES flying around in space capturing ships and looting.

    You can have MODERN PIRATES. There's tons of stories about pirates out in the southern oceans around South America, South African and Australia that raid fishing and cargo ships.

    There are FANTASY WORLD PIRATES which lend all sorts of fun ways to bend pirate style with unique cultures and maybe even a twist of magic.

    Or POST APOCALYPSE PIRATES! Imagine a derelict world, where everyone is fighting to survive and here come some pirates raiding lil colonies and stealing those precious supplies.

  2. I mostly like them in a historical setting but it doesn't have to be completely accurate. I don't like to have too much fantasy in it but I like to put in some fantasy aspects, like mermaids.
     
  3. You forgot Air Pirates from the Steampunk genre.
     
  4. You forgot:

  5. Airship Pirates.
     
  6. Steampunk Pirates ^_^ Flying ships, clockwork parrots/monkeys, and a hint of magic. :DDDDD
     
  7. Space Pirates. With an alien parrot thing.
     
  8. ALL..ALL OF THE GENRES!

    Wahahaha!
     
  9. YOU SEEM TO HAVE FORGOTTEN YOUR BUTT PIRATES AND PIRATE HOOKERS.

    Other than that, I actually do like any type of pirate in many contexts, from historical to modern-day pirates (yes we still have pirates out there on the ocean, just in motor boats), to space pirates of the future.
     
  10. Steam punk pirates sound awesome! But they are a great aspect to any genre.
     
  11. Hmmm... I don't think I've roleplayed with pirates yet :0
     
  12. You poot in the lyrics from the Lazytown song.
    I am so very, very, disappoint that you would sink to such a level.
     
  13. For me, pirates in space are the way to go. I would not abandon my advanced technology, wacky hijinks and interstellar travel for feelings of nostalgia, historical accuracy, or even a modern adventure.
