Jolly Bonny Anne Ships blog, Second Life, September '08

TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY!N

The sun rises on the International Talk Like a Pirate Day in the antipodes early - first up, the crew of the Bonny Anne mounted a pirate attack on BigPond's Pondi Beach in Second Life (after clearing it with the relevant supervisor of course!).  Our full pirate adventure is covered on the front page and we shall be updating during the day!  LOL ARRRRRR

 
Sept. 19th '08 - The Bonny Anne moored off the beach at Pondi

 

Jolly Bonny Anne Ship's bLog, Second Life, June '08  - Chase Speculaas has made a triumphant return to the world of Second Life simulated pirate sea battles by releasing his new xebec Corsair ship.  The 1770's sailing vessel is fitted with five powerful cannon on either side and two smaller guns on the bow making it a lethal fighting sailing ship and the choice of our first rate captains.  The Corsair sails best with a crew - at least one gunner to handle the guns - making it devastating in battle.  Speculaas Design builds simulated sea battle ships: the longship, brigantine & xebec corsair.  A sailable 1700s frigate is on the slipways.  We encourage captains to read our reveals with Chase Speculaas

Jolly Bonny Anne! Fight like a man!

Jolly Bonny Anne's battle ensign pirate flag
The Southern Cross is used to navigate by the stars to show due south and Australians will recognise the stars from the Eureka flag with the blue colour of the original Eureka still shining a glow around the stars ~ the rebellion at Eureka stockade equal in importance to the US War of Independence in their history.

The three crescents is a wicca symbol depicting feminist moon cycles & influences: wax, wane and full moon although a circle of full moon is not apparent amongst the many points projecting from this fearsome looking flag.  The three crescents appear on national flags from some middle eastern nations.

Four eight-point stars and three crescent moons make the design & to make the flag cut out three curved triangles and one smaller triangle in black.

The symbolism of the Jolly Bonny Anne ship's name: 'Jolly' is a reference to the Jolly Roger, the flag of pirates of the 1700s.  Anne Bonny was a famous female pirate who was jailed for piracy but released because she was pregnant.  In prison she was visited by her lover Jack Rackman and greeted him "If you had fought like a man you wouldn't have to hang like a dog"

The battle cry of the Jolly Bonny Anne pirate ship is
Fight like a man! LOL ARR!

Pirates use their battle ensigns to enforce fear encouraging submission ~ Get this into your head! See this flag, be afraid!

June 1, Jolly Bonny Anne longboat sank a xebec corsair captained by Pegleg Gans with guns manned by Admiral Chase Speculaas
 ~ see me battle chat scroll down! LOL ARRR!

[0:18] Chase Speculaas: Use a longship, fight us
[0:19] GaiaGirl Pearl: ok!

Now, it doesn't always take less than five minutes to sink a corsair - this was a fast furious battle with multiple tights turns and in fairness Chase mentions that they hit some flotsam and he swam to my ship on a mast, see photo 1  Chase said "this is actually a perfect outcome though. Now if anyone bitches about the Corsair being overpowered again, I can say "Well, GaiaGirl sunk a corsair with 2 crew using only a Longship with no crew


LOL ARR
I sank an Admiral
Ooops!
