Febuary 20th, 1741 Somewhere on the Antlantic
It's been two months since I left Southampton, with nothing but my chest, the clothes on my back, and hundreds of miles between me and my old life. I never did know my family well, except for my brother who had just sailed for the Colonies in North America to start his own life. I wanted to join him, but the warm water air would help with my condition. I plan to make for either the Bahamas or Port Royal, open up a book shop and live my life in simplicity. But a stranger told me of a better offer once I reach Nassau, so I took his advice.

It's been three years since I ran into Jack back on Rambleshack, and so far I've made a living as a pirate. fighting Jolly Roger, the Navy and the EITC, looting, sailing and learning about Voodoo after my fancy play with a sword and gun. I've help retrieve the Black Pearl and claim a cursed sword from El Patron's lair on Raven's Cove. I am truly enjoying my pirate life, and also a ship load of gold. I do not know what the future holds in store for me, but I know one thing: It's not going to to be good.

More than twenty years have past since I've last written in this worn sea-soaked journal, and things have changed since... (You will have to see the adventures back on the main page; just below the journal link)
