The Tale of the Pollo Tropical Pirate Fest………

The year is 1718.  The Port of Old San Carlos is held by England. The Lord Governor William Pennypacker holds a tenuous grip on the port, having been continuously assaulted by the dreaded pirate Grimm and the crew of the Pieces of Eight.  The Lord Governor, a man of questionable integrity, allows the Brethren of the Briar Rose safe haven in this port, despite their reputation as pirates…all for a price, of course.  In return for asylum on the Port of Old San Carlos, the Brethren of the Briar Rose provide gun and cannon to guard the land.  Brothers, Captain Hurricane and Captain Mac’s mighty ships, The Black Pearl and the Black Duck, patrol the gulf waters.  In an attempt to diffuse a brewing feud, the Lord Governor Pennypacker has declared there be a festival with grog, food, entertainment, and goods for sale aplenty.  Unbeknownst to the Lord Governor, there is some very bad blood between Captain Robert Flood, who leads the Skeleton Crew and her allies, and Grimm, of The Pieces of Eight.  You have arrived in the Port of Old San Carlos.  Take care you keep your guard up…there are pirates among you!
