Beware ye land lubbers

Over a year ago (probably closer to 2 years ago) I got a pirate murder mystery online. We have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to do it and since September 19th is National Talk Like a Pirate Day we thought that doing it on that weekend would be best. Our friends were really great sports and did such a great job with their characters. My only regret is that we couldn't invite more people.

Meet some of the cast. One-eyed Wanda
Our Commodore and Governor.
Two of our pirate crew (I don't remember their character names at the moment)
We ate out of pie tins, drank out of jars. Back in the corner by the flag their is a treasure chest full of jewels and chocolate coins next to a barrel of homemade rootbeer.
We enjoyed giant turkey legs, rice and beans, tropical fruits, goldfish, bread pudding, and the rootbeer.
The Cap'n enjoying his turkey.
The poor Commodore was getting picked on... lots of tiny fruit swords in his lovely hair.
The Governor and his daughter.
Those bold enough to wear fishnets.
The whole cast.
We had a great time and several of us even solved the murder. Can't wait to order the next one.

Yes, I agree with Nan on the "Cooperative" group of friends:) Looks like you all had a fun time! And I think I have to say, "NASTY" to Jared and his tights!!! Hehehehehe:)

This was so fun! Thank you Dani and Jared for hosting! I would say this was a smashing success. Unfortunatly (for me) I believe Jared rocked those fishnets even better than I did.
