"Hook and pegs are not, of course mandatory for all pirates–merely those missing hands or legs. Specifically, hooks replace hands and pegs replace legs. Replacing your hand with a peg will make it hard to slide down a taut rigging in the heat of battle, and replacing your leg with a hook will make it hard to put your pants on."

(I got a book for my birthday, "The Government Manual for New Pirates." It's funny. I'll be quoting it perodically.)

"There are more pirate friendly islands in the Carribean than could possibly be listed in this volume.However the experienced buccaneer will soon develop the instincts to predict what sort of reception he will recive, based purely on an island's name. As a rule the more unappealing a name is to anybody else, the more homey and inviting it will sound to a gentleman o' fortune.

Cockroach Island, Backstabber's Bay, and Dead Chest Key all have large pirate populations.

Rainbowpony Cove does not."
