„I hope you’re right about that Captain Morgan“ said Bo while he stared into the camp fire, „the crew won’t put up another month without prey.“Zhao Lin knew about the crew’s mood too well. It hadn’t been a week since she beheaded a one of the gunners who had spoken the word: “Mutiny. I know. And I know how to handle such  affairs.” But Lin also knew that mere brutality could sustain discipline only for a while. To stay captain she had to be successful. So was the pirate’s way. 

 

“Zhao Lin!”

In an instant all guns and blades were pointed at each other. A group of three men came out of the forest and stopped in front of the captain. 

Their leader began to speak: “My name is Mubaku. I am the Queen Annetta’s Revenge’s quartermaster. Benjamin Morgan sends his regards.” Zhao Lin was surprised. “Where is your captain? I was told he would meet me here in person. I did not come all the way from Rassilon to speak to his subject.” She said. “There are no subjects in this crew, captain Zhao. Only free men unified under the colours of our captain. We honour the pirate’s code. And our captain apologizes for his absence; his plans changed. He set sail toward the east. More I cannot tell you yet. But Morgan offers you to sail with his Lady Arlene and several other ships on a trade voyage.”

“Trade voyage? Earnestly? He wants me to play the escort for his merchant man? How dares he to slight us? We are  no lesser pirates than your crew! We do not trade, nor do we fight for pay. We take what we want. I promised my men rich captures.” Lin had taken herself into a rage. What was this Morgan thinking?

The man called Mubaku had listened to her calmly. “Your quarrels with your crew are your problem, captain. Morgan offers you 100 doubloons for your escort. Won’t that be enough to please your crew for a month? Also, you can keep what you catch. Any ship you take as a prize on the voyage will be yours, as long as you defend the convoy. See it as a trial. Take this chance, earn his trust, and soon enough you will sail with Morgan. What say you?”

Zhao had calmed down. This wasn’t what she had hoped for. But there weren’t many options left. A few of her men would be furious and take this as a humiliation. But 100 doubloons and the chance to sail with other armed ships weren’t that bad. And on the other hand, if she now returned to the crew without any deal with Morgan they would most likely become mutinous and maroon her on a lone rock somewhere on the open water.  “Aye, we have terms. I will escort your convoy. But when we return, I want to talk to your captain.”

Mubaku nodded with a smile: “Very well. Welcome to the crew of Benjamin Morgan."

Thanks all for commenting! This build was all about the story, so there's not too much exciting stuff here. But hey, sometimes in an rpg that's unavoidable. I promise, the next story part will be a blast of some kind :pir-classic:

Aye, the machete is from the new jungle sets. It's a great piece and a valuable addition to our amarment I think. There are also two or three other useful new parts I will include in the near future.

Nice! I'm impatient to get my hands on one of these jungle sets, for the machetes, and the panther and the leopard!

Great crew you've got there captain!

A little detai that appealed to me was the use of the Nexo-knight bad guy armor. Nice to finally see these put to good use!

Ahoy, thank you! I found this a wonderful piece since it was introduced in ninjago- sadly at that time only in red. Luckily, those Nexo villains came with a black version. 

Main inspiration for the Zhao Lin character was our beloved Fire Nation princess Azula from Avatar.
