Blade of the First Bastard
"Many years ago, a noblemen sired a son with his mistress, and upon discovering her pregnancy, disowned the woman and her unborn child. As the years went by, the boy grew to be a thief, a crook, and a general menace to society as a whole. Upon the death of his mother he learned the truth of his lineage from her will, and went out in search of his father. When he found his father and was prompted turned away, he struck his father down with an ornate, obsidian long sword that hung on a nearby wall. The boy fled, sword still in hand, and stole a ship that belonged to his father. Over the years this bastard would find others like him, children disowned by noble families; and together they would form the Black Isle Bastards. A crew of cut throat pirates that ransacked the ships of nobles all across the seas. Although the first Bastard eventually passed, his legends, and his crew would live on. This sword hung in the captains quarters for many years before it was passed onto you, the Watcher."
Not a very good story, and kinda long. But I've had that sitting in my head for a while and thought someone here might get a kick out of it.
I left out any real names or places, just in case Fluffy Senpai notices me.
I dig it. It could do with some editing, of course, but as a first pass it's not bad at all.
