Pirates of the Caribbean: The Piate Wars, sometimes called simply The Pirate Wars, is a fan-made book series which narrates the events that take place between Curse of the Black Pearl and Dead Man's Chest, or in other words, the Pirates Online storyline. It is set to be released in at least 4 parts, each with up to 10 stories of the ongoing war between Piracy, the East India Trading Company and Jolly Roger's Undead Armies.

According to the author, "The book, as u know, details on the main POTCO plot and includes events like Invasions, Treasure Fleets and that stuff. But it also tells about more internal stories, like Jack Swordmenace's and Captain Leon's, or other from less known guys. It's all really exciting, and it's nice to have the fans' support".

Part I - Onset


"A shrinking world. A malevolent global company. A cursed, bloodthirsty captain. A handful of buccaneers.

Piracy is a common crime in the waters of the Caribbean. So common, some find it disrupting for their questionable honor. For others, it's merely a source of income. For many, it means freedom.

With the Aztec Curse (which held Captain Barbossa and the Black Pearl '''undefeateble) lifted, pirates everywhere have resumed doing what they do best - "take what you want, give nothing back" - untroubled.

However, in this time of brief quietness, an evil agent by the name of Cutler Beckett seeks to take the Caribbean by any means necessary... and a cursed pirate by the name of Jolly Roger seeks revenge on his old nemesis, doing away with whoever stands in his way. And now, the Brethren Court must choose to fight or flee... for their enemies have united, and vowed to destroyed them." - Official Facebook description.

As the first part of the series, the Onset introduces all the classic characters from Pirates Online - Captain Jack Sparrow, Jolly Roger, Ezekiel Rott - but also gives a face to all-new characters like Jack Swordmenace, Captain Leon, Enrique O'Rackham, John Fatbeart - and many more.

The book takes place in-game between the Battle of Padres and the oncoming Invasions.

Pirates of The Caribbean: The Pirate Wars - The Onset brings back classic pirate swashbuckling, evil curses and high-seas adventures but also sports suspense, romance and mystery.
