OK, this isn't D&D related, so impale me.
I'm interested in getting a pirate RPG, and after much research I've narrowed it down to Skull & Bones from Green Ronin or Pirates! from... I forget. My question is this: Which is better? Both have gotten good reviews, but I haven't been able to look at them in person since my local shops don't have them, and if I order them I have to pay for 'em. Any preferences? I'm looking for a pirate RPG set in the actual time of piracy, not in a fantasy setting. I was thinking of writing my own, but since there are some already out...
I eagerly await your opinions.
(I resisted the strong urge to type all this in pirate-ese.)
