Princess Bride Drabble: Old Pirates...
Here’s a quick and silly Princess Bride drabble. 100 words, PG.

Old Pirates...

Westley stood, hands tied behind his back, and watched as his pirate captor had the other members of the captured ship’s crew thrown to the sharks.

An odd-looking character, this pirate captain, with hair hanging in matted locks and crowned by a woollen hat patterned in stripes of red, yellow, green and black.

“The agents of Babylon go down unto destruction,” said the captain. He turned to Westley. “You can live, mon, but I and I probably kill you in the mornin’.”

“Please,” said Westley, “Who are you?”

“Truly,” the captain answered, “I and I am the Dread Pirate Roberts.”

Current Music: Bob Marley, "Redemption Songs"

Did I ever mention the political management game run by Jo Walton (and her former husband Ken) at an SF con, in which about thirty players were the new government of Florin following the collapse of its Communist government, and had to deal with problems like exploiting the methane deposits under the swamp with Rats of Unusual Size, decontaminating chunks of land contaminated with foul potions, hostile relationships with neighbouring states, etc. etc.

One of the less sane solutions we tried was to issue the Dread Pirate Roberts with letters of Marque and Reprisal, and ask him to do whatever he could to improve our economy. A few days later in game time we learned that he'd captured the Mir space station in Florin's name...
