THE PIRATE SCOURGE

Historians call Woodes Rogers the privateer and pirate hunter responsible for taming the Bahamas by stamping out the pirates to bring the island nation under British rule. To accomplish this feat in Black Sails, Rogers (played by Luke Roberts) grants pardons to the pirates sailing out of Nassau – as well Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New), whose help he enlists to complete the transition. He asks her to provide the names of those who will resist British rule. She only gives him one – Charles Vane – but Rogers will soon discover that bringing British rule to Nassau will be no easy task. VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans an opportunity to claim four distinctive rings worn on-screen by Rogers during the third and fourth seasons – all are gold or bronze and black in color (click here to see the rings) – and fitting of a nobleman with the heart of a sailor.
