All events in this story are 100% TRUE. Nothing is fake, all of this is historical evidence of Samuel Redbeard and his history in the game. It is mostly about his history in the East India Trading Company.
I Join PotCO
"Start you free trial today, at Piratesonline.com!" I heard these words. I was at my grandmothers house. I went into the computer room, got on, and went to the website. I decided to name my pirate Samuel Redbeard. I joined, and immediately became EITC, and didn't think about making an EITC name at the time. I was always fascinated with Lord Cutler Beckett. I joined on December 27, 2007. I had previously made an account on RuneScape.com, I was LvL 68 at the time on RuneScape. I Wanted to make an EITC guild. I tried "The EITC." It didn't work. There was a force called the Black Guard in RuneScape(RS), and they were part of the dwarven empire of Keldagrim, and wore black. I saw the EITC wore black as well. I made a guild entitled... EITC Black Guards (Yes, I SERIOUSLY did).
The Black Guard
I wore the closest thing to the EITC outfit, and then the barbossa outfit came out. Pablo Swordmaster made the EITC outfit. I created the EITC Black Guard, it was not the biggest hit, I had 53 people in the guild. Then, on May 12, 2008, I met a man dressed like me. His name was Pablo Swordmaster. He had a guild called The EITC's Elites. We decided to make ONE guild, and I preferred his guild name over mine. I joined his guild, and it laster over a year.
The Black Guard Cometh!
It was May 24, 2009. I saw him log in. He had a flaming skull above his head. Red words read Host GM, and his name, in gold, read Captain Ellison Shaw. I said, hello, and he responeded with "Nice guild name. It's a pleasure to meet an EITC enthusiast." I said, Thank you, sir." I read his guild name, EITC Black Guard. I decided to tell him about my previous guild. It upset him greatly and he called me an impostor. Then a man named Lieutenant Clayton Meade approached. "What have we here, Captain, a Pirate?' He asked. "I believe so." Responded Shaw. "A very interesting pirate, at that." "Ah, shall I take care of him?." Said Meade. "Not now, the time is not right, this man has a future." Said Shaw. And I knew then I had a long life ahead of me.
I Am The Company
Soon, Pablo Swordmaster got banned, he was the EITC leader at the time. I stepped up, and took his position. The EITC's Elites name got banned, so I joined Black Mercenary's. I had many EITC guilds at my command, and I was powerful and feared. I defeated McRaging and Spania, two HUGE guilds at the time. I made Giratina Origin Forme my Second in Command, Lord Davy Menace was Third, and Nathaniel Scurvyskull was Forth. Ben Costello was exiled for claiming to be the EITC leader. I was feared from Port Royal to Tortuga, and all knew of me and my power. I was the most famous person on the game at the time. Soon, May 27 came, and the EITC stopped coming. We carried on the legend. We went everywhere, always in the name of the EITC.
I Go Away
Soon, I became bored with the game. On September 24, 2009, I found Wizard101. I began to play that. I no longer logged on to PotCo. This was a mistake, as many people, such as Benjamin Macmorgan, claimed to be the new EITC leader. I never gave my power away, so I was still considered the leader.
Lord Samuel Returns
On March 17, 2010, I came back to the game, and resumed my position as leader of the EITC. I gave myself the rank of Lord Marshal, as Lord was too old. I found the guild The Co. Empire, headed by Diego. A man named Daniel invited me in. After three weeks, and Diego never logging on, the guild voted me the new GM of The Co. Empire, the biggest EITC guild at the time. It was then that I was officially known as the EITC leader. A man named Mr Pancake tried to stop me, but it didn't work. Then I met Maggie Wildrage. We hit it off right away. We began taking. And after this, I met somebody who would go down in history as the most infamous EITC Officer ever.
I was at Ile De'Table de Porc with Daniel, Maggie, and Giratina. A man named Captain Leon teleported to me. He asked who I was. I said I was the EITC leader. We became close friends. I even made him an EITC official. But things happened. Soon, he got angry at me, I got banned for saying REALLY mean things to him. Which, I regret. Because he turned out to be extremely powerful. I came back, we both apologized to each other. Little did I know what was to come. I made him Third in Command of the EITC. I told him of my plan to make an EITC Council (Which he would later rename the Council of Elders) I had all but three positions filled. He asked for a position, I denied him said position. He got angry. He told me to wait here, he had to talk with some friends. I teleported to him and found men in uniform with swords out. The Black Assassin being one of them...Lord Leon as he was called had secretly been gaining men. He had the entire EITC serving him by the time I knew what was happening. And that is where we come to the war. And that is where this TRUE story only just begins.
