The Mourning Wood
The sailing ship of the pirate captain Natazsi, the Mourning Wood is becoming known for practising a sick punishment known as double dicking. Its figurehead is a winged snake with supple breasts that feature screaming faces in place of nipples.
The ship was formerly known as The Sea Bitch and The Man’s Promise.
History of the Mourning Wood
The Mourning Wood was captured by Captain Barnabas of the Wormwood, who sent his officers Plugg and Scourge, along with a skeleton crew, to sell the ship at port. During the journey, the crew mutinied, and following a vote it was determined that Natazsi, Splintershin, Jerry and Zep would captain the ship together.
However, when it came time to christen the ship, Splintershin was the only one willing to have sex with a free captain aboard the Mourning Wood. Natazsi and Jerry retired from captaincy at that time, while Zep was intimate only with Sandara Quinn, and so while Splintershin and Zep were ostensibly the co-captains of the ship, Zep had lost the respect of the crew and was viewed as the “Second Captain,” and her authority was routinely questioned.
Natazsi later seized command of the captaincy with the unanimous support of the crew (with the single exception of Zep).
