Rory Casbury—infamous Pirate of Vimiland, lover of women the country over and scourge of the king—finally has his hands on a truly big score: a thirty-pound solid gold statue of a smiling baby! It’s big, it’s heavy—it’s valuable—and it belongs to King Bobby! Which means that Duke Calus Grey will stop at nothing to get it back, leaving Rory on a tight schedule to find a filthy rich buyer to pass his troubles on to.
A Deep Dark Pit of Despair, the first installment in the Pirate in Theory series, is a fantasy adventure set in Vimiland, a landlocked country and home to Rory and his band of outlaws, including his muscle-bound best friend Bozius Bozinius and a young wizard by the name of Rafule Charsbic. As Rory & Company run around Vimiland in an attempt to hock the Golden Baby, wanted posters are snapping up and doors are closing, beds are growing colder and every turn seems to lead them into the tip of a sword. Constantly fending off attacks from those who seek to simply take the Golden Baby for themselves—whether it be the Cache of the Hand, Raiders of the Unfaltering Step, the evil Circle, or simply Calus Grey’s hand-picked rangers—Rory must also keep a constant watch for the women he has scorned, the deputies that wish him dead, and the countless others lined up to serve him his just desserts. All the while, the Golden Baby holds a secret unbeknownst to the party—a secret that could bring down the king of Vimiland and change the future of the entire country!
