Pirates of Dark Water

Growing up The Pirates of Dark Water was one of those shows I loved. Here's the show's premise:

The alien planet of Mer is being devoured by an evil substance known as Dark Water. Only the brave (and inexperienced) prince, Ren and his allies can stop it by find the Thirteen Treasures of Rule. His allies in a monkey-bird, a pirate, and an eco-mancer. They travel the water surface of Mer looking for the relics in their ship, the Wraith, all the while being chased by the evil pirate lord, Bloth, and his massive ship the Maelstrom.

The show had a great style and unlike many cartoons at the time, a serious plot. I think it would make a great setting for a Shadow of the Demon Lord game. What if the Dark Water was actually the Demon Lord's shadow on the world? I'm sure just about everything a person would need to run this game will be in the Shadow of the Demon Lord Freeport Companion. Well, except monkey-birds, which would be a fun ancestry.

What do you think? Do you remember this show? Ever use elements of it in your game?

  1. This is one I've never seen, but I know it has a pretty good reputation. The little bit I know makes it seem like a perfect match for gaming.

    Also, if you didn't have me at monkey-bird, you would have had me at eco-mancer.
