Wretched Snipe ~ A 10-gun Corvette captained by a quick succession of Pirates. The Wretched Snipe used to belong to part of a fleet run by the dreaded Pirate Admiral Sabal. The story goes, after a mutiny, the fleet fell apart, attacked one another, and the only ship to survive was the Wretched Snipe because it turned and fled. Since then, a seeming curse has hung over any Captain who has tried to hold its crew together. They are a laughingstock among pirates, and are often used as target practise by Weaponry and Dreadnaught Academies. Her flag is a black field with two gold coins on a diagonal.
