This is How to do a Mutant Mashup. Thanks Zak!
Okay, so I really love it when someone can take an existing idea and put a cool new spin on it. When done right it's a real brain-expanding experience. Too often it's just a tired rehash where they simply file off the serial number and give it a new coat of paint. Not so with this superb effort by Zak S. over at Playing D&D With Porn Stars. He's done a weird mashup of Warhammer 40K and Pirates of the Caribbean called "In The Wine Dark Sea of the 40,000 Isles, There Is Only Booty". Each 40K space marine chapter becomes a pirate ship. The name of each chapter is twisted into a cool new piratey ship name and the name of the chapter founder/leader is twisted into a cool new pirate queen (captain) name. There are other references and cool bits in there as well. Just fantastic. I could easily use these ships as the basis for an entire campaign.
