Thank you ancestral! QFT. Similar to how vikings didn't actually wear horns on their helmets...

Here's a suggestion: Just forget about the existence of grammar, insert a random epithet after every three words or so - maybe spit after every couple sentences, too - and you'll sound like a 100% authentic pirate. You could go even further and neglect personal hygiene for a few weeks to complete the impression. Something to think about for next time around. :whistle:

Not even Pirates spoke Pirate.
So you'll be the first one to drink five pints of rum and walk the plank... :lol2:
High over valleys in the red levelling rays -
In din of crowded streets, going among the years, the faces,
May I still meet my memory in so lonely a place
Between the streams and the red clouds, hearing the curlews, Hearing the horizons endure.

So good the international speak like a pirate day is over, and we can speak normally again...
Flameslash, you're a pirate, because you speak like one even if you don't have to! You certainly don't have a valid Wesnoth CD-key and you downloaded it from an illegal torrent!
