At some point you would think it inevitable that pirates encounter some sort of magical beings. Since wizards visit the same worlds pirates do it stands to reason that eventually there will be a wizard/pirate confrontation. After listening to the wizards boasting non stop about how superior they are to pirates and how easily they could defeat them I think it would be a good idea for there to be magical artifacts that pirates could collect that would enable them to successfully battle magical beings and wizards. Different artifacts that could grant them some immunity to magical attacks or even grant them magical abilities for a short time. Anything that could level the playing field against wizards and give pirates the ability to be competitive with the wizards. Enchanted weapons....anything. It's the spiral...it could happen. If this were to happen I would return to the game.
