It's been a long time between pots o' rum for the pirate crew, with their last real appearance being way back in #1017. I've wanted to bring them back for a long time, but just haven't managed to think up any decent scripts. Whether I've managed to do so now is an open question. :-)

2016-04-26 Rerun commentary: Port Royal was a real haven town for pirates in the 17th century, and is still to this day a real town in Jamaica. But Port Royal is a very small town, almost totally hemmed in by the sea on all sides, as you can see from a map:

The city is on the end of the Palisadoes, a long, thin spit of sand and small islands which protects Kingston Harbour. Seems like a great place for a pirate town!
