The Pirate Life for Me

I have always felt that the pirate genre was one that should be expanded. Besides Sid Meier's Pirates!, there are not too many offerings out there. There are games related to Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean series (which are great movies), but they are not focused on the "pirate lifestyle". This something that needs to be fixed. Ever since Chunk and the gang went after One-Eyed Willie's treasure in The Goonies, I've been hooked. The idea would be to have an RPG game where you could live out the life of a pirate on the high seas 500 years ago. There would be the looting of ships and ports, battles with the authorities and other pirates, sailing, treasure, and lots of rum. I picture this as a multiplayer game where gamers could create alliances to achieve goals, all the while being ready to backstab their "friends" because that's the pirate way.
