Arr, welcome to the Urban Pirate Dragons, maties! I suppose yer wantin’ to know what this club is all about, and so I’ll be happy to tell ye so you can see why you ought to join our illustrious crew!
During the first Draw Yourself As A Dragon Contest held by in 2009, I () and got to talking about her most excellent pirate boots on her dragonsona. This led to a long and hilariously ridiculous conversation that resulted in numerous inside jokes and the birth of a group of pirate dragons who run around a city full of mythical creature people in the good ship (aka speedboat) Burninator, pulled by a pickup truck with a cannon in the back and driven by a dragon who knits constantly (). We spend our time raiding water fountains, throwing kids’ birthday parties (because kids love pirates! And we’re broke), destroying post offices (that was an accident!), battling ninja gryphons, and making even more ridiculous inside jokes. If you feel so inclined, matey, feel free to come aboard; we’re a motley but fun-loving crew, and we’ll be happy to give you a job so the rest of us can keep slacking off!
The only rule: No ninjas allowed! * And no alcohol beverages on the ship, please.** And no killing anyone.*** And whatever else I or Mav feel like telling you to do, because we’re in charge and that’s the perks.
Welcome aboard, shipmate! Fair sails and may the pie flag fly high! Arrr!
~First Mate Riverfox
*Except we already have, like, three in disguise and one I’m trying to get to join as our official ninja liaison, except he’s being difficult. So traitorous ninja-pirates could maybe get on board with, say, bribes. Tasty ones.
**Poul, stop hiding beer in the kitchen cupboards! I WILL KEEP FINDING IT!
***No, that one’s pretty straightforward, I have no disclaimer to add here.
