Quotes

Rackham: A story is true. A story is untrue. As time extends it matters less and less. The stories we want to be believe... Those are the ones that survive, despite upheaval and transition, and progress. Those are the stories that shape history. And then what does it matter if it was true when it was born? It's found truth in its maturity... Because what's it all for if it goes unremembered? It's the art that leaves the mark. But to leave it, it must transcend. It must speak for itself. It must be true.

First off enjoyed this as was a different idea using the fictional characters alongside the real historical ones. I can accept a certain amount of adaptation but the way this has progressed has just been a complete rewrite. Adapting the odd death or narrative is fair enough but the way this has progressed has become tedious.

I am now just glad it's over, sadly a good opportunity was missed. I mean Woodes Rogers died as governor of Nassau at the age of 53. Just shows the utter drivel this became.
