The Brictory

Pirate ships are common, so Her Majesty`s navy came to the rescue. Introducing The Brictory, a early 19th century frigate, armed with 26 cannons and captained by the experienced Admiral Horatio Studblower. Whether on the high seas or the high shelves, this pirate-chaser will obliterate all it`s enemies.
