Sail uncharted seas where the map says solely “Here be Pyrates!”, to the exotic Indies and join the privateers, pirates, smugglers and general dregs in the notoriously lawless port of Freetown! Seize power as the Pirate King, become the richest captain ever known, have fantastical adventures with your (un)trusty crew and hold your own with all the other blackguards as you carve a place in pirate legend.

Follow dead men’s tales to find undreamed of wealth, conduct daring sea battles and raids against your rivals, or rescue innocent hostages (for your own gain, naturally!). A pirate’s life is never dull and a lust for life and good living are as necessary as low cunning and simple greed.

Here Be Pyrates! is a freeform roleplaying game set in the Caribbean around 1720, in the heyday of gentlemen – and women! – pirates. It is based on old and new novels, films and even real pirates from a wide period and various regions, and is a complete work of fiction. Players assume the roles of various pirates, heroes, daring travellers and the like; and the women are equal to the men not least in notoriety, power and influence – because, yes, there really were women pirates! Expect drama, romance, and death, but most of all a lot of swashbuckling!

As with other freeforms we will be taking liberties with both original characters and history, so please don’t assume anything beforehand; and, well, we like to write surprises.
