.The God KPDGaskell didn't expect this much anger and rage from a couple hundred dragons, it's as if someone actually cared about them.
And so he decided to create a new type of warrior, the only problem he had was the fact that pretty much anyone that worshipped Quark, Sjoerd or Shadow (Considered very senior Gods) had pretty much burnt, killed or banished all his worshippers from Angland, the country HE made.
And so his followers built gigantic boats and set sail, travelling through the waves, firing at any dragons they saw with these strange things called cannons. They took over any ships belonging to Shadow's ninjas or Sjoerd's warriors and looted them. He called his worshippers: Pirates.
Soon almost every pirate ship had put up the God KPDGaskell’s flag to show their loyalty*. Life as a pirate was soon so popular that people made a special holiday where everyone talked like a pirate**
After meddling with Youman culture the God KPDGaskell remembered the war and quickly changed the suns orbit to bowl straight through both Sjoerd and Quark, he had trouble un-doing this though and so it tends to do it once every year now.
*There were two problems to this. The first being that it told people who they were and made it harder to find decent prey that hadn't chucked all their valuables overboard into the sea. The second problem was that the God KPDGaskell didn't have a flag, so most people just put up a pair of black underwear with some skull and crossbones painted on it.
**The truth behind it was that people found it amusing and a good joke; no one had the gut to tell the God KPDGaskell this
(Also if shadow will ever forgive me (or if I’m not beaten to it) I have plans for ninjas and pirates)
