While Captain Rodriguez de Medina and his pirate crew are on the beach partying, the three young prisoners in the brig of his ship, the San Paulo, are plotting. Their plan: steal the ship, steal the infamous reputation of Rodriguez de Medina, steal his plan to capture the gold laden Man-of-War, the Endurance. The three adolescents steal the San Paulo, but manning a ship with three sets of hands is one thing—attacking the Endurance is a whole new beast. But James, the leader of the pack, has a plan. He will rely on the feared reputation of Captain Rodriguez. Every ship that has faced Captain Rodriguez in the past eight months has surrendered without a fight. This is the crux of James’ plan. No one, including the Endurance, knows the San Paulo was commandeered by three ruffians. They’re going to impersonate Rodriguez and the Endurance will surrender her treasure. Or so James hopes.
