I mean, if you're piratey at all, that isn't very ninja-y. I mean, take a ninja, dressed like a ninja. Now have them act boisterous and drunk, etc, piratey. Seems odd.
Take a pirate though, dressed like a pirate, and sneak around after dark around the isle, or into the rival pirates cove, or sneak aboard another vessel in the dead of night, dispatching the night guards one at a time. Still piratey. Pirates still can be sneaky.
But a Ninja using a blunderbuss? I mean really.

Ham Nox wrote:A Ninja Pirate is a Pirate who has trained in the way of the Ninja. Absolutely awesome, because you have the fun, drunken persona of a pirate who can totally kick your butt and steal your wallet while you're lying dazed on the ground. (They could steal your wallet while you weren't lying dazed on the ground too, but where's the fun in that?)
Ham Nox wrote:A Pirate Ninja is a Ninja who operates on the open seas. These are not so fun, especially since no one even realizes their ship has been raided by until the Pirate Ninja is 314 kilometers away. They operate alone, and have strict honor codes as opposed to the Piratical Guidelines.
