Pirate Lore consists of legends, music, oral history, popular beliefs, fairy tales, stories, tall tales, and customs that were told by pirates and sailors around the world. These stories offers many an adventurer a chance to learn more about the world around them while spinning tales of thrill, adventure, and danger with salty old seadogs. Many lores were made over time; some of which would be believed to be not more than legend.
