Okay, so they weren’t exactly people. They were monkeys. The ship had been taken over by an army of dirty little monkeys. They ran around the mast and deck of the ship screaming their filthy heads off and scratching themselves at odd intervals.
“Captain, what do we do?” asked one of the men, visibly frightened.
“I hate monkeys.”
“AH! That one is staring at me! Make it stop!”
“We fight.” Scurvy answered as he pulled out his sword, determined.
And so they fought; man against monkey, pirate against primate. The battle lasted all day and well into the night, both sides engaged in an epic struggle. Finally, at the break of dawn, a victor had been decided.
1. IF THE PIRATES WIN, GO TO P. 37.
2. IF THE PIRATES LOSE, GO TO P. 33.
