My primary pirate, Kai Cormac, just started the quest 'Marleybone Steel', in which you're directed to go speak to a Dr. Nation about reactivating machines named War Golems.

Hmm.. I wonder, inspired by the late Terry Nation, writer for 'Doctor Who'? Mr. Nation did create one of the most enduring (and most popular) 'Doctor Who' villains of all time, the terrible and relentless Daleks.

I love the little in-jokes and name puns throughout the game almost as much as I love seeing each new world appear in all its glory. I hope to sail the Spiral till I'm 99! (Which means you guys have to keep Pirate 101 going at least another 40 years.)

Maybe --Okay, I'll admit to being in my 50's. But no fair trying to figure out how far in!
