“As a new day begins, with favorable winds and the sea recounting tales of recent battles, the air is filled with a sense of renewal. The deceptions and corrupt hearts of the old world are being exposed. The authority of outdated leaders is weakening, their lies unraveling, and darkness encroaching. Each sunny day heralds an impending storm, testing our strength for the ultimate confrontation.

Embracing the spirit of pirates, we stand free and true-hearted, navigating through storms that seek to sow doubt. In the midst of darkness, we find light as old truths fade, making way for a new narrative. Our destiny lies in our hands, hearts, and every action we take. By reconnecting with our true selves, we embrace the essence of life shared with all beings. Together, we are an unstoppable force, united in truth and guided by the elements.

We will conquer oceans and lands, spreading hope and resilience. Our pirate chants will echo through the ages, with our ancestors singing our songs and our words shaping the new world we create. Our legacy will endure forever, united as one formidable force under a final ARMADA, ready to shape our destiny.”
