Who are the Brethren of the Great Lakes?

The Brethren Pirates are a (dis)organized group that occasionally travel together for an adventure. Members come and go at their leisure and are encouraged to participate in any adventures they sail too close to. And they’re more real than you think. The pirates of the Brethren are not the same type of pirates you need to avoid when in the various waterways of the world. They won’t kill you for your goods or kidnap your children. But these pirates do look for treasures and go on adventures. They do “obtain” things mysteriously, and do live life a certain way. Some study the water, some sail, some study history, but all of them take the mantle of pirate seriously. But mostly they like to have fun, in whatever ways they can, and they often like to entertain. Pirates each have their own talents, some sing or play instruments, some are sword fighters, some are jugglers, some are historians, others are fire-eaters, still others are crafters. Quite a few are or were members of different performance groups. Each pirate usually has something that they are known for. The Brethren attend events or produce their own, they work fund raisers, promotions, and generally try to put a little fun in everyone’s lives.


So if'n yer a Captain, swabby, or somewhere in-between, keep a close eye on what we dredge up from the depths, adventure, and even a bit o' treasure turns up from time to time.


Here's where ye find all the needed information of upcoming events for the Brethren of the Great Lakes, as well as information on the brethren themselves.
