This began in another thread and it quickly became obvious that saving these stories in one place would be better than posting them randomly in other places, so here we go.

To add your own contribution to this effort, you can either post here, and I'll add it to the first post, pending confirmation, or pm me either the text or a picture of the text (preferred) and I'll do the rest.

THE ADVENTURES
OF THE

OF THE SEA

FORBIDDEN ISLAND


Sometime during the 18th century, a
peaceful colony of settlers enjoying the island
treasures they discovered, suddenly had their
serenity interrupted. The invaders were those
who called themselves the LEGOLAND© Pirates
of the Sea! For years, the Pirates had been
searching for the same buried treasures that the
settlers were now claiming as their own. This, of
course, disturbed the Pirates as they knew the
doubloons (Spanish gold coins) the settlers found
had belonged to their ancestors.

Forbidden Island was named by the
settlers because to them it was forbidden. It was
the island where only Pirates could live.

It was there that Captain Red Beard and the
other buccanneers made plans to "steal" the gold
from the settlers. Little did the Pirates know,
however, that the settlers had Governor Broadside
guarding the gold and that they would have to
deal with him first if they wanted it.

The Governor lived for the day he would
have to defend the Eldorado Fortress and the
gold. What he did not know was that the day of
confrontation would be coming soon...

IMPERIAL FLAGSHIP


During the 18th century, a peaceful
colony of settlers enjoying the island treasures
they discovered, suddenly had their serenity
interrupted. The invaders were those who called
themselves the LEGO SYSTEM™ Pirates of the
Sea! For years, the Pirates had been searching
for the same buried treasures that the settlers
were now claiming as their own. This, of course,
disturbed the Pirates, as they knew the doubloons
(Spanish gold coins) the settlers found had
belonged to their ancestors.

Many years ago, a wealthy king
summoned the best shipbuilders to design and
build what is known as the Imperial Flagship.
He called to duty the finest Soldiers to guide his
ship on a journey across miles of ocean. Their
mission was to retrieve millions of dollars worth
of treasure he had hidden on a deserted island.
The Soldiers, thinking this an easy task, were
not prepared for what was ahead of them.
Spotting the royal ship leaving the deserted
island, the Pirates knew instantly what the
Soldiers were carrying aboard the ship. Will the
Soldiers be able to protect the king's royal
treasure from the Pirates?

On a remote rocky island, Captain Red
Beard and his crew of Pirates established the
ultimate command post. Called the Rock Island
Refuge, it was the perfect haven for the entire
crew of the Black Seas Barracuda. From this
outpost, Captain Red Beard commanded the
efforts of the other buccaneers at the Forbidden
Island and Shipwreck Island enclaves.

The day was drawing near when the
treasure chest full of doubloons would once
again belong to the Pirates. Before that day
could arrive, however, Governor Broadside and
the other settlers would have to be overcome.

The gold the settlers found on a neigh-
boring island needed to be transported back to
their Fortress so that it could be kept hidden
from the Pirates.

The crew aboard the Caribbean Clipper
was called to action. Their task was to return the
gold safely to the Eldorado Fortress at whatever
cost. Once they reached the Fortress, Governor
Broadside would take over and find a safe place
to hide the gold.

The crew was a group of very proud men.
They would not let anything or anyone come
between them and the gold. The Pirates, however,
had other plans...

Knowing that the Pirates would come

governor of the settler colony, sent a message to
all of his men to meet him at the Eldorado Fortress.

It was in the Fortress that the Governor
made plans to protect the settlers treasure.
Beneath the Fortress floor was a ___ ___way(?).
It was there that the Governor decided the gold
should be kept so that it would be safe from the
Pirates. Part of his plan was to unload the gold
from the ship, the Caribbean Clipper, and move
it to the Fortress. He wondered what adventures
lay ahead...

The Captain decided to gather his men, load
his cannons and set sail to reclaim the Pirate

High winds, turbulent waters and
tornado-like storms would have overwhelmed
most, but not the Pirates, for they knew what
fortunes lay ahead. Just then, looming off in the
horizon the Captain noticed the outline of an

This, of course, disturbed the Pirates, as they knew the doubloons (Spanish gold coins) the settlers found had belonged to their ancestors.

Gold seeking pirates had become such a problem for Governor Broadside and the other settlers that they were forced to strengthen many of their existing settlements. One such fortification was the Lagoon Lock-Up. Prior to the invading Pirates, this peaceful establishment was an inn of sorts for the settlers to grab a bite to eat and relax. It has now been fortified to protect the lagoon and to hold captured Pirates for questioning.

Governor Broadside is determined to protect the gold which he and the settlers have hidden at the Eldorado Fortress and Sabre Island. The Pirates, however, have their own plans for the gold and they don't include sharing it with the settlers!

Well it looks like all of the sets depict the Pirates as heroes and the soldiers as thieves.  I thought that the different boxes might present two sides of the story (ie make the soldiers look good on their own sets), however it looks as if the settlers are bad to the core, stealing the gold of those poor misunderstood pirates.

  Kind of a funny twist that allows kids to cheer on the pirates without actually cheering for the badguys.  I like how the Pirates are only trying to steal back gold that was wrongfully appropriated from their ancestors.

What drug are you on. The pirates plan to steal the gold from the settlers treasure. This treasure belong ed to their ancestors. How are the pirates good.

I think what it's trying it say is the treasure belong to the pirates' ancestors.

So Captain Kaboom, if someone "claimed" something that once belonged to your great great great granny would you not want to claim it back?

Exactly right. In effect, LEGO was trying to create a story where everyone was technically innocent, from their own point of view. The Pirates are only chasing the gold because they feel it rightly belongs to them. The Imperials are simply doing their job by protecting it. The settlers found it, and therefore believe it's theirs.

Personally, I choose to blame the settlers. First of all, where did they imagine that coins came from, the local native population? Of course not. Second, since LEGO never bothered making any settler minifigs, they're easier to blame. :-P

The real point is, we get to decide without having to feel pressured by the story. That's a great improvement over the stories they've used in more recent years for themes like Mars Mission or Castle, where you have clearly defined good and bad guys, with no room for imagination.

I had always thought that the Pirate's ancestors/antecedents had been Pirates themselves, and had originally stolen the doubloons from the Spanish.  This was one of the reasons I was excited when LEGO released the Imperial Armada sets (all two of them...)

This backstory does explain the abundance of treasure maps in the Pirate theme, yes?

Set 6273: Rock Island Refuge

The Adventures of the Lego System Pirates of the Sea
Rock Island Refuge

During the 18th century, a peaceful colony of settlers enjoying the island treasures they discovered, suddenly had their serenity interrupted. The invaders were those who called themselves the LEGO SYSTEM Pirates of the Sea! For years, the Pirates had been searching for the same buried treasures that the settlers were now claiming as their own. This, of course, disturbed the Pirates, as they know the doubloons (Spanish gold coins) the settlers found had belonged to their anchestors.

On a remote rocky island, Captain Red Beard and his crew of Pirates established the ultimate command post. Called the Rock Island Refuge, it was the perfect haven for the entire crew of the Black Seas Barracuda. From this outpost, Captain Red Beard commanded the efforts of the other buccaneers at the Forbidden Island and Shipwreck  Island enclaves.

The day was drawing near when the treasure chest full of doubloons would once again belong to the Pirates. Before that day could arrive, however, Governor Broadside and the other settlers would have to be overcome.

Another big update thanks to natelite! *y*

I'm not sure how many are really left, as I don't know how long they continued doing these.

I'm also looking for the international versions. I can do a decent job of copying what I see, if I can see the picture well enough. I couldn't manage the non-English stories for 6280 without risking missing out on various accent marks. If anyone else is more familiar with them and could type those up, it would be great.

Keep those stories and pictures coming, assuming there are very many left.

Thanks for all the help! *sweet*

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!
