Twas the Golden Age of Piracy: a time of grace and beauty, of sex and sin, of Absinthe and ecstasy, and Blood and Roses. The menacing Galleon, Sângele Lucru , presented herself sideways,... More > frighteningly. The Sângele Lucru, meaning literally Bloody Tide, was rumored to be maudit par sang--a blood ship manned by Vampires.
