Chapter 1: The Plan

"This gastly weather is putting us behind schedule," 

Mason Des Lunes

"Captain Silvers" heading to the Maison de Lunes.

said Captain Silvers of the EITC's private fleet. The real hero behind this disguise was Charles Crestsilver, master of plans and disguise. He'd played the part for months now just to be trusted into the EITC ranks and get free pass into the prisons. "Begad man," he said to one of the guards, "The food and weapon shipments must be made immediately if we are to keep our heads." The weather was that of the thickest fog, from which you could only see a few inches in front of you. Just as Charles had planned. He blew a shrill whistle in the air, which would normally signal changing crew shifts. But this time, it meant his and his trusty spies would hide in the fog and slit the guards throats one by one. When the last one was thrown overboard, Charles had his men hide as they approached the secret British prison of the Maison de Lunes.

Chapter 2: The Arrival

"Halt," said Maxamillion of the guards posted at the Maison de Lunes. "What is your business here?" Charles looked him straight in the eyes, and with a snooty, British persona he said, "Why, odd's fish sir, it's me. Captain Silvers, here with the weapons and supplies for the guards." "Well, put 'em in the basement and be on your way." Maximillion replied hastily, "We don't need that demmed Crestsilver fellow threatening the mission." Charles went on his way with his "crew" and carried the stuff towards the cells instead of the basement. He was then stopped by 2 guards, who walked towards him, bayonets ready.

Chapter 3: The Rescue

"Why my dear fellows," Charles or "Captain Silvers" explained to them, "I was told by Maxamillion himself that I was to take a left at the cross section. I'll just go back and..." With that he whirled out his hidden knife and slashed at one man while one of his men aimed down his pistol at the other. With that, Charles took the keys and went to rescue his friends and crew. Captain Nick, cousin and massive brute. Ned Edgewalker, best friend and man with a plan. Jumbee, supplier of all nessesary things, plus he's undead. Brownbeard the Great, most skilled fighter ever known. And Capt. Stone, cousin but direct go to for EITC matters. These 5 men were known as the Silver's Savvys, the most notorious crew of Anti-British men ever. They didn't have time for thanks because at that moment, Maxamillion appeared in the doorway. "Sorry about the harshness earlier it's just that..." he noticed the freed prisoners and the dead guards. "Men! Men! Captain Silvers has freed the prisoners! Arrest him at once! Captain Silvers, you are hearby relived from EITC duty, permanently!" Within seconds, guards blocked every escape route but the windows. But the base was on the top of a 80 foot cliff... with water at the bottom. Charles knew it was risky but he had no choice. His crew noticed what he was about to do and joined in. The 6 men ran towards the window.

Plan-of-Attack Map

Maxamillion watched as Charles Crestsilver and the Silver's Savvys jumped out of the window into the sea below. Maxamillion shouted to his men to get down to the shore, "Don't let him escape men!" Maxamillion grabbed one of Charles's spies by the neck and dragged him into one of the prisons. Nobody noticed this and kept swimming out to the Silver Crest, Charles's personal Light Frigate. "Cast off!" Charles shouted to his men and they were off, far from the nearest EITC. "Thank ye fer savin' our hides back thar," Captain Nick said to him as they sailed, "They were plannin' to hang us by sunrise." "No problem, now let's get down to business." Ned, Nick, and Charles gathered around a map in his quarters. It showed the strategic locations for a battle planned at Padres Del Fuego. "We attack here and deliver the final blow here. Any questions?" Charles said. "What if someone happens to find out about our plan?" Ned asked. "Trust me, Ned. That could never happen. Our men are highly trained and impossible to catch. No need to make any sort of plans."


Letter

The Letter from "Christopher"

Back on deck, Jumbee was walking around while Capt. Stone took a nap. He'd been so bored that he'd been trying to name all the men that walked by. There was Brownbeard and the spies: Matthew, Jack, Henry, and... where was Christopher? He'd seen each of these men at least 5 times now but Christopher hasn't shown up once. He walked over to Brownbeard. "Have you seen Christopher anywhere?" "Nay," said Brownbeard, "Not since the prison break..." It hit them all at once. He must've been captured. They decided to run and tell Capt. Stone when they saw a note. In a fancy cursive, a note was written and placed on Christopher's hammock. It talked about how he couldn't handle the job and jumped overboard. He also misspelled "beat". This deeply concerned them and they decided to tell Charles. As they went into his quarters, they passed by and didn't notice an EITC spy taking off in one of the rowboats. He was writing a report to his boss, Lord Andrew Mallace. In a fancy cursive type of writing.

Chapter 5: The Meeting

"Sir!" The spy ran into the meeting, soaking wet, "My mission was a success. It turns out Charles Crestsilver was Captain Silvers in disguise. Him and his crew have been tricked into thinking the spy threw himself overboard." "That will be enough," Lord Mallace told him, "Your gold is in Vault #23, the key is under the staircase." The spy ran off to collect his gold. "Now Max," he told the now promoted member of the EITC, "What did you say you had for me?" "I have captured one of Charles's spies (Christopher) and he had documents about his plans. It was unfortunate that he didn't survive the 'session'," Maxamillion explained to Lord Mallace and Lord Goldtimbers at the meeting, "Charles plans to walk in as Captain Silvers and cause a distraction as his men, dressed as guards, discover Lord Beckett's chambers. They're going to send a message to King George to stop sending troops permanently. Then assassinate Beckett so that the orders won't be sent for another few years, because any new lord to be appointed won't be as trusted by King George. By that time, him and the United Islands of the Caribbean could easily take out most of our men and cause a Caribbean revolution against us. It's a catastrophy!" As the lords contemplated how to solve this issue, Lord Goldtimbers figured out how to solve the issue. "Ok so here's how it'll go," he said, "We know his plan, so we just need to stop him. Extra security outside Beckett's chambers, guards hidden inside, and for Charles, leave him to me." They make a few tweeks and agreed on the plan. Then, they made the arrangements needed for the plan. Lord Johnny left the room. Lord Mallace started to follow but forgot his coat and went back. He saw Maxamillion speaking to someone mysterious and hid in the corner. "Get me Blackbeard." Maxamillion told his personal courier secretly, "And... Jolly Roger. And Davy Jones. And the best mercenary you can find." The courier ran off with his instructions. "This is going to be my shining moment. I'll destroy all the key members against the EITC and free my debt with the pirates. But Lord Mallace and Lord Goldtimbers can't find out." Lord Mallace hid in the corner, behind the coatrack, listening to the whole plan. He muttered to himself quietly. "Trying to pay off your debt with those cursed pirates, eh Max? That would interfere with our plans. I must warn Johnny Goldtimbers."

Chapter 6: The Run-In

Charles sat at his desk wondering why Christopher would do something like this. It made no since. The ship had landed in Port Royal and he sat in his house contemplating. The rest of his men went for some drinks at the Rowdy Rooster. He decided to walk around town and get some air. As he passed by Edgar Shipcrash Weaponry, a rushed man ran into him at full speed. "Hey watch where you're going..." Charles paused as he noticed it was Lord Mallace. He pulled out his sabre at pointed it at Mallace's head. "What are you doing here?" Charles asked him threateningly. "Well," Mallace replied, "The EITC needs your help." "With?" "We figured out your plan after kidnapping Christopher..." "Christopher is dead," Charles replied harshly. "No," Mallace told him, "It was a set up. But Max killed him in our interrigation sessions. Max, also, is trying to mangle with the plan to pay back his debt with Davy Jones, Jolly Roger, and Blackbeard. He thinks that they'll just kill you and be done. But they'll destroy the whole EITC if they work together!" "Good," Charles said, "No more EITC means my work is done. But why haven't they worked together before then?" "Because the EITC have made sure they stay apart," Mallace continued to say, "Whenever their ships get close we attack them. It causes many losses but it saves many more. If they destroy the EITC, they will band other pirate leaders together through force and kill everyone who gets in their way." Charles hesitated to think things over. Was Mallace telling the truth? They used to be friends at a time but that was long ago. "So will you help save the EITC?" Mallace asked him. "For one time and one time only. But... make sure I get free passage away from you EITC after it's all over," Charles told him. "Deal." They shook hands and started to make their plans for the upcoming battle.

Chapter 7: The Set-Up

Charles and Mallace ran to Lord Goldtimbers. "Why did you bring that TRAITOR in here, Mallace?" Goldtimbers questioned. "Both of our men and us agree that we need a temporary alliance," Mallace told him, "To stop Maxamillion from destroying the EITC." "What!?" Goldtimbers shouted, "I thought he was with us!" "He is," Charles butt in, "But he tried to pay back his debts with the head pirates, like Blackbeard and so on, by allowing them to come and help destroy me." Charles and Mallace told Johnny about how if they met, they'd destroy both of them and create a pirate empire in the Caribbean. They also told them their idea to stop it. "So," Goldtimbers said, "I finally can get rid of you and it costs me my life as well. Fine. Mallace, rally the troops and head towards Kingshead. I have an idea to help your plan." As they walked off, Goldtimbers stopped Charles at the door. "And just so were clear, this is the last time we ever team up," he put a knife against Charles's throat, "Deal?" Charles thought about it for a second. "Deal." Johnny withdrew the knife and boarded his ship to Kingshead. "Fire the cannons." Goldtimbers's ship shot at Charles's. The Green Mariner sank at the port. Charles aimed his rifle at Goldtimbers's head. "Calm down, this is so we don't have you trying to go on a separate ship when the fighting begins. There's strength in numbers but a small number will die faster than a large one." With that, Charles boarded his ship and they sailed off the Kingshead.

Chapter 8: The New Members

They landed at Kingshead. It was a deserted ghost-town. "Where is everyone?" Mallace asked. "Oh, that's what I forgot to do," Charles remembered, "My men were supposed to make a commotion down in Padres to draw their attention. I forgot to cancel it." They decided that it would take too long to send people there and collect everyone to head back. "We need to fight them ourselves," Captain Nick proposed. The rest of Silver's Savvys agreed and then set-up the plan. Within a few seconds on finishing the trap, Maxamillion's ship was spotted in the distance. Following behind it were the Queen Anne's Revenge, the Flying Dutchman, and the Harkaway. "Prepare for Battle!" Jumbee shouted. Brownbeard hid behind the crates, Jumbee climbed up a building and grabbed a rope, and Capt. Stone stood behind the doors. Captain Nick and Charles were grabbed by Lord Goldtimbers and Lord Mallace to seem captured. Then, conflict sounded outside the fort. Jack Daggerstealer (U.I.C. founder and Charles's friend) sailed up to the incoming ships.

"Take this, Maxamillion!" he shouted. That was when he fired the cannons on him. After he damaged the ship, he had a look of triumph. Though only for a second. Then, he noticed the other 3 ships behind Max. At that moment, Ned Edgewalker (an old friend of Charles's who is in the Brethren Court) came to attack Jolly Roger. "What? Another ship?" he said towards Jack's ship, "Who are you?" "The name's Jack Dagegrstealer, head of the..." "My name's Ned Edgewalker. I came to kill Jolly Roger. What are you here for?" "I came for Maxamillion," Jack told him, "I didn't expect these guys though." "Well, I didn't expect Max, Davy, or Blackbeard. Their too strong," Ned shouted to him, "Look, there's a ship down near Kingshead, let's see if they'll help." They started sailing away. Though their ships were damaged, they still sailed faster than the other ships. "Wait, that's Johnny Goldtimber's ship!" Jack shouted, "It's probably a trap!" "Relax, Jack. They would be firing cannons this time of day, and listen... silence." Jack was reluctant but seeing no other choice they sailed to the island fort.
