here is a video as well for more information on each law and how it is used throughout history.


but now you wonder: “how is this used in piratecraft to help out others or even me?”

well with a basic understanding of these laws, you can better know how to outwit your opponent, especially with laws 5, 11, 14, 21, 26(many of us cannot use this due to our influence on the world), 27 (horsia), 35, 39, 45, and 47.

i see these laws used many times by many people throughout piratecraft. With this information, do as you will.


“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
― Bruce Lee
