Port Royal (A scum barge)
Okay, we know Eclipse Phase has pirates (awesome), but we haven't heard that much about the logistics of how they operate. So I had an idea for a pirate-focused scum barge. The barge doesn't act as a pirate ship- instead, it's a mobile base for pirate ships to stop by, repair their ships, sell cargo, and relax. It has facilities for repairing and equipping ships, a thriving black market, medical facilities, and several taverns. Another feature of the ship is its unique mesh presence- when viewed via mesh, it appears as a tropical island dotted with wooden buildings, with sailing ships on the horizon and snatches of sea shanties hanging in the air. Any other ideas about piracy in EP?

Piracy in EP is going to be
Piracy in EP is going to be as much about information as it is about physical goods. I would expect it's mesh presence to contain a lot more than meets the eye. The barge could work as an information clearing house, the resource piracy secondary to it's primary purpose. Which gives the characters a reason to be there. As well as illicit recordings of inner system music and pirated software there's bound to be something stored in those servers that is important. Overlooked in a haul by a group of annons, or written off as nothing important it contains secrets transhumanity was not meant to know. And it's owners want it back...
