By looking at the box art you would think a Lego Pirate does not have a care in the world?
Today my (only at the moment, but this will soon change!) Lego Pirate expierenced all the downsides to piracy.

First captured by the smug Red coat, and put into a horrible prison cell, to await transportation back to England where I am sure the gallows await:

The sadistic Red coat admiral had not even provided a bed!

On the way back across the atlantic we ran into a storm, the ship was wrecked!

Now if the sadistic Red coat admiral goes to buy Pirates Kraken Attackin tonite, I am sure next I will be devoured by some sea monster, but at least I may get some pirate company at last!

Great work! Nice storyline and nice work on the MOCs, especially the water looks great.
I'm eager to see the next part. :pir-blush:

cheers!  I saw that water technnique (but better executed) on here first.  I think I might need to stock up on a lot more cheese slopes soon.

Just bought myself Shipwreck Hideout and Loot Island...
I think Pirates are amazing!

Now I have a whole crew of good for nothing sea dogs to round up and inflict my sadistic imagination upon!

I totally agree with them, the water looks great. And the pictures are very clear, that makes it look like you are really there in the story.  And it's a nice story, but most pirates, ofcourse, weren't so lucky.. :pir-classic:

He wished he had made it to Cuba (a Pirates playground I presume!), instead he floated through the sharp (no sharks... yet) waters, and landed on an island...

Now this would not so bad, except it is already inhabited by this deranged soul:

And who I presume was his last guest to visit?
Posted Image


A diet of raw crabs:

And stimulating conversation at meal times...
Posted Image


Lets just say living with Robinson Crusoe was not a barrel of laughs...
Posted Image


To make things that little bit more unbearable, the man is convinced, given the right tide and a good wind, he can steer the island home!

I mean I just play along to pass the time really...

it was an easy choice, stay on that island and slowly loose all sense of reality, or take a chance on the seven seas again...

I love the story so far!  You have a nice sense of humour, and the MOC's, while not outstanding, work well for what you're trying to convey!  VEry good work, I look forward to further installments!

so after floating around aimlessly in his bucket, our unlucky Lego Pirate is getting thirsty (drinking options very limited and rather unsavoury!)...


a lush green island is spotted, and a sheltered bay is found...
Posted Image


with all this vegetation fresh water will be near, so a trek inland is the answer...
Posted Image


so it looks like we have another guest?

this one looks all skin and bone, but sometimes the thrill is in the chase?

Good work!

Is that pirate going to find shangri-la any time soon? It looks like he needs a break...

I really like the story, and good work on the island too! It looks very realistic with all it's cliffs and plants.
You told the story well, now I'm eager to see the next part! :thumbup:

Hilarious! :pir_laugh2:  I really wonder how this will end.. I hope he will survive, so the story can continue some more times :pir-classic:  Great how you made the island, but maybe you could have put some animals on it (for dinner :pir-classic: )

I agree, he's thirsty and tired and all what he has is a paddel to fight off the Islanders so I think he should live a little longer.

I really like these little stories. Keep up the good work :thumbup:

eventully in a clearing I found fresh water...
Posted Image

it was a relief to know I would finally quench my thirst...
Posted Image

as I rested I tried to clear my mind, to rid myself of the paronoia that had been building up...
Posted Image

I did not like this island, I felt uneasy, like I was being watched...
Posted Image

but worse than that, I was starting to feel like I was being hunted...
