I know you never said that the Pirate sets were sets you didn't already have hence the reason I was clarifying this.  

NOW my first objective will be to determine the Pirate set you didn't already have.

Ok, what's left...
1481  Pirates Desert Island
6246  Crocodile Cage
6247  Bounty Boat
6254  Rocky Reef
6255  Pirate Comic (does this count?)
6259  Broadside's Brig
6261  Raft Raiders
6263  Imperial Outpost
6266  Cannon Cove
6268  Renegade Runner
6279  Skull Island
6281  Pirates Perilous Pitfall
6296  Shipwreck Island

We've already established is none of these:
6276  Eldorado Fortress
6277  Imperial Trading Post
6285  Skull's Eye Schooner


Now, I need confirmation on this before I proceed.

Consider it confirmed mister_phes... :-D  (& yes, the comic counts, but I didn't get that, so you can mark that off ;) )

Dang, you lurk here like a madman...  :oD  & no, there are no soldiers or Imperial Guards within the set... getting warmer... ;)

Like a madman?  I am a mad man!  No, I'm beyond mad!  I'm a full on psychopath!

Actually I'm looking for pictures of art works to support this essay I'm writing.  As I'm only on dial up they take a few moments to load so that gives me the opportunity to write messages here while I'm waiting.  But thanks for your fast replies.  Its a wonder I don't have the impression you're not lurking like a mad man too!

Ok, this shortens the list to:
1481 Pirates Desert Island
6246 Crocodile Cage
6254 Rocky Reef
6261 Raft Raiders
6268 Renegade Runner
6279 Skull Island
6281 Pirates Perilous Pitfall
6296 Shipwreck Island

This reminds of that game, Guess Who...  Has your set got a...

Ahh yes, a psychopath... one of those voices in my head seems to be one of those as well, but the rest of us are going to 'vote' him out... :-D

& the 6279 Skull Island actually contains Imperial figs, so that one can be 'crossed off' as well ;) You seem to be losing your LEGO Piratey skills whilst looking at these 'art works' you spoke of... me hopes that it ain't permanent :-D

Well I am writing a 2500 word essay on whether image reproduction has been benefitial or detrimental to art, so my concentration is not 100% devoted to solving your mystery.

But right now I'm going to have a nap and work on the assignments later.

I didn't figure that solving this mystery was a major part of your life ;)  A nap sounds good, I think I shall take that route as soon as I get off work... in an hour or two...

This forum breaks up the monotony of my assignments, however at times I think I allow it to distract me too much which results in them taking longer to complete.  Ah well, 2 more days and it's all over for 6 weeks.  Well essays at least.  I'll still have a number of assignments and projects to continue and start.

If Mr Blackbeard has pin pointed the answer I shall be the follow question:  Is the set a sea vessel or and island?

I agree, this forum breaks up the monotony of working for me ;) Good luck with the rest of your assignments & projects...

Concerning your question... it is a "sea vessel" :-D

Cpt. Blackbeard, as you can tell from my answer to mister_phes, it is not the set you guessed ;)

Thank you for your encourage Mr Dotcom.

The list becomes:

6261 Raft Raiders
6268 Renegade Runner


Although these two are in conjecture as they're include reminants of sea vessels.

6281 Pirates Perilous Pitfall
6296 Shipwreck Island


But, I'll use my fuzzy logic and guess...  6268 Renegade Runner

As much as I'd love it to be the 6268 Renegade Runner, alas it is not :( (although I do have a deal in the works for one to get to me soon ;) )... so it appears that through deductive reasoning, you have come to the solution of which Pirate set I now have (that I didn't before)... yes, it is 6261 Raft Raiders :-D Now comes the set that I received a duplicate of in the Pirate line, as well as the three other sets in the Castle line :)

&.....go!
