Recently I was away from my home PC and bored. So I did this... apologies for bad grammar, it's just a story. If you enjoy and the developers don't mind I'll do some more.
Disclaimer: I am not involved in the development of Battle Pirates nor do I own any aspect of the game, I just enjoy playing it like everyone else and wanted to flush the story out a bit.
“Years ago our world had as much land as water but that was years ago, long before anyone alive today was around. Now all we have is the sea. Exactly what happened is unknown, lost to the years, however what is clear is it was the ship captains who saved what they could and brought us to the islands. Now in all that sea that is the world we are a scattered bunch of islands, a few thousand inhabitants each. They call the Captains pirates, I call them our last chance.”
“Our first Howitzer, fully operational it will defend the entrance to our island from all threats and pose as a deterrent to anyone who would think to challenge us.” The island’s head captain said looking up at the bases newest commissioned defensive weapon.
“A complete waste of money, Captain.” Someone said walking through the crowd
“Senator Michaels, your opinion was well noted and it was out voted, as the way of the island the majority leads.” The captain said with a broad smile.
“Captain, how long has it been since this island was attacked, by anyone?” Senator Michaels asked raising his arms getting people’s attention.
“There’s always a first time, Senator”
“I could believe that Captain, but how long has it been since you own Marauder has seen combat.” Michaels said looking over at the Captain’s own ship sitting in the docks the Marauder, the biggest ship of the fleet, was one of the survivors of the great floods and rarely put to sea instead leaving it to the newer classes that had been developed over the years. “How long Captain?”
“Many moons Senator, much that you know, however there is always a first time and we must always be ready. The Howitzer will safeguard us in the immediate future, we should celebrate this.”
“You mean the Captain’s should celebrate still remaining in control.” The Senator said this time smiling himself.
“We are only here to protect this island and it’s people as we have always done, as our predecessors did.”
“As your predecessors did, the Captains keeping the power destined for Civilian authorities…” Michaels began before the Outpost’s sirens began “what is that?”
“The Emergency sirens” the Captain replied “Operations, what do we have?” Moments later the Captain turned back to the Senator “one of our Longboats is coming in, on fire, perhaps you civilians will excuse me.”
“Were they attacked?”
“There’s always a first time!” the Captain shouted back grimly running down the dock at the outer marker the inbound ship was coming in. The Longship was smaller than the Marauder-class however it was still a solid vessel, more often than not the Longship class was used as a miner gathering resources for use in the base and in new ship development.
Reaching the docks the Captain watched as the Longship moved into the shipyards on autopilot, it was too dangerous for a ship to manoeuvre in island’s narrow channel under its own control. As soon as it was in range of the docks fire fighters opened hoses on the ship’s structure allowing the first rescuers to get aboard. Charging aboard the Captain headed for what remained of the ship’s bridge the ship’s hull was thankfully intact but it would take days just to remove the damaged armour and weapons before repairs could begin. The bridge was all but destroyed only a single member of the ship’s crew a young Lieutenant remained holding onto the ship’s main wheel, the Captain ran to his side pulling the young man to his feet “Lieutenant, what happened out there?” He demanded seeing the man was awake “what pirate attacked you?”
“Not a pirate, something new.” He struggled out “in mining fields” he said before passing out.
“Get a medic over here!” The captain shouted, moments later as the medics arrived he rose to his feet looking around at the devastation. Touching his hand to his ear he tapped the communicator there twice activating the Marauder’s communications system drawing himself up to attention, as if that made a difference, he spoke loudly and clearly. “This is the Captain to all hands of the Marauder. Fuel the engines, arm all ripper cannons and prepare to put out to sea.” He said marching off the wrecked Longboat back onto the pier there stood Senator Michaels and his civilian following.
“Captain, what do you intend to do?”
“I’m going to find out what is going on out there, I’m taking the Marauder out to the mining fields to find the cause of this damage.”
“That will leave us defenceless!” Michaels protested “you have a responsibility, all the Captains do!”
“My responsibility is to the sea, you have the Howitzer that and the sea wall will protect you.”
