Diabolus enim novit codice scriptor pirata.
By Tandecker

Our paths be intertwined
The seaward and te landward ye be bound
I hope you are entertained
A hearty fortune to be found

By luck and pluck and guile...

Show your savoir faire
This devil wants your worth
You'll have to have a pair
To fortune and ye be kurth

Oh, how that devil, he does smile!

This devil bids to ye
Bring him your trinkets; dyad
Beget your scary raiment
And tell him the secrets that be had

Or maybe to a fish that babble

Beget these, by any means
Boldly set astride
Be it in a book of reams
You'll search far and wide

Stand out from the pirate rabble!


This devil wants to see your piratey worth.
Follow the clues, collect the items, be it names, trinkets or what have yous, and follow the clues to lead you through a difficult and fun path.
Prove to this devil that you have all these great piratey attributes in contents below.
