There is a strange code of honour that exists even amongst pirates, and Pirate’s Code is an attempt to codify this into rules.
The most famous are:
- No gaming at dice or cards
- No sleeping with a woman without her consent
- Quarter must be given if asked for
Other rules are sometimes added relating to theft on a ship, sharing out of booty by rank, obeying the chain of command, rights of parlay, restrictions on magic use and the rights of prisoners, but then, who would trust a pirate?
