Storyline

You are Etta Redlocks – once feared Pirate Queen in these parts.

Tricked by an old enemy, you were sentenced to a 300-year dreamless sleep at the bottom of the sea after opening the cursed chest containing a priceless treasure.

Back in London - and mad as hell! – you seek vengeance on your old enemy, still alive as long as he keeps hold of the Cup of Life. The very treasure he stole from you.

Blood shall be spilled, and revenge shall be tasted…and a bottle of rum would wash that all down nicel
