7th Sea – The Ballad of The Fantoma Reine Episode 16

The crew of the Fanoma Reine has, for now at least, evaded the Inquisition forces.  It was not without considerable loss:  The crew is bearing a great many injuries from the fight in the palace and the subsequent fight and chase with the inquisition death squad, which left a few members subject to a hailstorm of gunfire.

The crew of the Fantoma Reine is finally reunited with their precious ship, and Jeremiah Berek, the self-proclaimed pirate king, who has come to them asking for a temporary formal alliance against a greater threat.  Corsair captain Kheired-Din has dealt his ship a heavy blow and has been eliminating other pirates to establish himself as the one true pirate king.  This comes as a shock to the entire crew of the Fantoma Reine, who had last seen him trapped in the palace of the Sun King as the fuse was burning down on a few hundred pounds of gun powder.  Perhaps with less chaos and more firepower, the Fantoma Reine and the Black Dog can put him down for good.
