Swashbucklers for Life

Swashbucklers for Life is a collaboration between various pirate/privateer/buccaneer groups throughout the Steamlands in support of Relay for Life; originally conceived as a relatively simple gathering of three different pirate groups, SFL has quickly grown into a day-long event involving six groups and spanning seven different sims. Get buccaneered up and get ready for a day of fun on the seas! Swashbuckling attire is encouraged, but optional. Come for as much of the day as you can (or as much as you dare...) and show your support for Relay for Life in the Steamlands! There will be dancing, drinking, playing, racing, fighting, and modeling. There will be comely wenches and dashing buccaneers. There will be rum. There will be waffles. What more could you possibly ask for?
