In another world, another time, pirates rule the seven seas and all its borders. They are Gods, holding the lives of all in their hands. Or rather, cutlasses. Both men and women join the pirate ships, some escaping from dull lives on land, for others, the sea stirs their very heart and soul. Others yet have piracy in their blood and cannot ignore it.
The two most prominent Pirate fleets are the “Skulls” and “Seekers”. And they are at war, destroying the coastal towns in their furious battles for control of the oceans. The Seekers are the more humane, they do not submit to such debauchery at the Skulls. Only killing when needed, they are the Black Barts of the sea. They do not burn and rape; they simply take what is needed from the ships that they board without unnecessary torture and torment of the crew and passengers.
The Skulls however are completely different… these men are the Pirates of imagination, uncouth, destructive rapists with a love of gold that surpasses mere greed. But they are winning. They raze villages and destroy families without a single thought to how many people they hurt, or how much damage they do. Even the unicorns on their islands are not safe. No-one can stop the Skulls from doing what they like; and in any case, the unicorns have their own war at hand, against the dragons.
The war between the unicorns and the dragons began hundreds of years before the human race prolificated and spread accross the globe. It began with two figures walking along a path; that of a male unicorn and a female unicorn, both in their human shapes to make the peace talk easier. They discussed with each other as to what to talk about with the dragons over the territory dispute. These unicorns were the leaders, and they hoped to come to a peaceful agreement rather than the prolonged bloodshed of war.
Round the corner however were three dragons lying in ambush. They waited until the two unicorns drew level with them, then attacked both with claws, teeth and knives. The two unicorns fought bravely, but they were unarmed due to the discussion having been already decided as a peaceful meeting, and outnumbered. The dragons overpowered their victims and slit their throats, dragging the bodies to the shore and throwing them in the sea. The dragons didn't bother to wait to see if the bodies floated out to sea, but went off to their own camp.
Just two days later, two bodies were washed up on the shore, and found by the unicorns who had been combing the island, looking for their missing leaders. That night, two coffins were taken for burial by the beach. All of the unicorns attending the ceremony had faces full of anger and sorrow. They'd already seen the mark of dragon teeth and claws, not to mention knives, on their fallen leaders. To their minds, after their leaders had been laid to rest, there was only one way to answer this insult. War!
This led to deadly battles between the two species. The dragons were bigger than the unicorns, and had the power of fire, but the unicorns' archery skills were deadly and they easily held their own. The leader of the dragons was furious; both at the conduct of the three dragons who'd murdered the unicorn leaders, and at the way the unicorns had declared war on his race without warning. He vented his fury by ordering the execution of the three dragons, but the war would be harder. Maybe the unicorns would leave, but as far as he was concerned, it wouldn't be over even if they did...

A young woman dressed as a boy walked confidently forward. The name her parents had given her was "Nicola", but she always prefered to be called "Nikki". She had run away from home a few years back to become a pirate, dressing in boy's clothes rather than the heavy skirts and bodices that women were supposed to wear. Her skin was creamy, her eyes were green, like emeralds. Her hair was black, with reddish lights in it.
Now, seven years on, she was still lightweight and slim but muscled. There was one difference tho; she wore a silver plated full face mask, due to having been scarred horribly in a battle with the Skulls on the last ship she'd been on. The battle had been hard won, but she felt that she needed a change of ship. The crew from her last ship had all disembarked to find other ships too, feeling that the ship "Dolphin" was now unlucky. Nikki had no such superstition, however she felt as tho there was more in the future for her if she found a place on another ship.
