Planet Ripple- 49- Peg legs and cutlasses

If I didn't mention it before, sea Dogs are what people call seals in the future. Seems fitting, huh?

And just to clear things up, yes, the world is flooded, has been for a long time, but in recent years, new land has finally started to return to the surface. What were once mountaintops in our time are being pushed up, poking through the surface to become new islands. So yeah... that's a pretty big deal.

And yes, this is the guy Dr Weever mentioned, the captain who succeeded Andrea when she retired so she could spend more time looking after Minnow. Anyway, you all know how this scene is going to play out, right? We've seen it SO MANY TIMES in movies, where the captain thinks for a moment, then slowly turns around and plays the strong man, all defiant, like "We will not be deterred! We will not change our course! We aren't afraid of a few lowly pirates!" endangering the lives of everyone aboard.

Well... We'll see how he responds, tomorrow.

That's it for today.

I suppose, in a world of limited resources, pirates could only really emerge if a whole ship went crazy.

I don't know why, but I can't help but hear Idris Elba's voice when I read Nulk's lines.

Ok, robot pirates. I would have thought shark mermaid pirates because of Monster Musume.

I was thinking something like a cross between the Pirates from Owlboy, and General Grievous...

Oh, there are shark merfolk. They're nice, though.

This reminds me of the anime "Samurai Seven" where the bandits turned themselves into living machines in order to terrorize the villages.

Huh... Was the whole flooding of the world caused by the climate change by any chance?
NickOnPlanetRipple's avatar
Nah, that'd be predictable. By the time the flood happened, we'd become advanced enough to repair the damage we'd done to the environment. Something else flooded the world, and very suddenly.

That won't be revealed for years, though. It's one of the last things that'll be uncovered in this story.

Captain Nathaniel: Son, as long as their captain's name isn't Monkey D. Luffy, I think I can handle them.

XD, but yeah, situation sounds dire, and while I'm always up for seeing the forces of good and evil go at it, I certainly don't mind the idea of a captain who doesn't put his crew in danger unless he has to, like if they can survive just fine without that island and don't have the resources needed to do battle with a pirate crew like this then yeah, avoid it for now. I'm assuming this sub is basically a civilian vessel as opposed to being part of a navy fleet or whatever, correct?

Well, I sure hope they don't have Jack Sparrow on board their ship, and they don't have an elite team of six Skakdi who call themselves Piraka. And if they have a robot fox in their ranks... MAYBE we might still be fine... Unless their ship can become a giant robot itself, one that booms "Tidal Wave" over and over again... But it could be worse; I mean they could have a giant pterosaur-dragon-monster in command, and have a mind-controlled dinosaur that roars like an elephant and can swim... er... not that any of them are even GONNA appear...
