Our typical image of a pirate is of one that sailed the Caribbean and ran afoul of the governments there, mostly between the 17th and 18th centuries. We’ve heard the stories about Blackbeard, Anne Bonny, and (our personal favorite) Captain Morgan so many time that they’re as much legend as history. On the other side of the world, however, there was some epic—and often overlooked—pirating going on as well.


In 1956, Aleko Lilius wrote I Sailed with Chinese Pirates , and the book remains one of our best sources of information about Lai Choi San.

Like her father before her, Lai Choi San was given the title of “inspector,” which also gave her the official protection of the government. That allowed her to carry out her pirating without harassment by the government, amassing a huge fortune running protection schemes among the fishermen they were already sworn to protect. Lai Choi San was also known for her kidnapping schemes, seizing men, women, and children to ransom back to their families.

This weapon looks like it has a fresh slick coating of blood on its edge. When in battle you swear it gets more dangerous looking.

A bloodthirsty weapon becomes more powerful the more it is used in battle. Once per round whenever it makes a successful attack against a creature, it gains a +1 enhancement bonus to attack and damage (this stacks with its base attack and damage), up to a maximum of +3 after 3 rounds of successful attacks. Bonuses persist until the weapon has gone for 1 minute without making a successful attack.

There might have been better football teams at Alabama over the last 10 years -- it's too early for any of that talk -- but this one ... this one plays with a focused rage that is beautiful to watch, and frightening. There is blood in Alabama's eyes on every play, and at every moment.

This team is replaying the final, gut-wrenching score of January's national championship loss to Clemson every single snap.

The Crimson Tide defeated Ole Miss 66-3 on Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and it wasn't so much a contest as it was an extinguishing of souls. Through two games of its SEC schedule, Alabama has outscored opponents 125-3.
