Penn should definitely be bought back with the sword-skill he certainly deserves.
Long live Hideous Penn, outcast by the brigands because he is so hideous.

I think Penn might be the only brigand in the entire ocean that few would mind wielding a chainsaw. Obviously, his payout would have to be modified downwards somewhat, but just the whole humor factor of facing him balances that out.

I think he should wield at least 5 chainsaws, but maybe something like 10.

I remember my first run-in with 'ol Hideous Penn.

Oh, and that second poll option should be, "I will NOT sign the petition. Oh boy, am I Clever Smith!"

I wish that I could have a run in with Penn. He seems like a swell guy. He should have nothing on board but a hold filled with rum!

It would be fun to make him that mighty, and have him show up as a swabbie on random sloops. Suddenly all the brigs turn green around your tiny little boat.

I seem to recall back in the dark days of Azure that I had wrote a shanty about our good friend Penn... I'm a bit too lazy to dig it up though right now.

Yeah I fought them a couple of times. Sometimes they'd be all crazy chainsaw wielding, and others just sit there and die. They were weird.

OK, found it (it was on the PP-nest boards.) Here it is, something
I wrote way back in Azure:

The Ballad of Hideous Penn

One fine day as we sailed the Comfortable Mackerel
(We weren't going far, just to Turtle and back-rel)
A sloop approached fast, and it meant to attack-rel
It was clear that our limbs they intended to hack-rel

We ran up the sails, they'd not beat us that easy
And we made some good speed, for the weather was breezy
'Twas so fast in fact,that some swabbies got queasy
and we loaded the guns, they would look like swiss cheesy.

But soon our attackers stopped dead in one spot
'twas an ambush they planned, at least that's what we thought
So a gunfight they wanted? we aimed and we shot
As we fired, none answered, there's holes in their yacht.

We fired again, and their ship was now scarred
there were holes everywhere, and the masts a bit charred
And though they be messed up, the fight would be hard
as we readied our swords, and prepared them to board.

As we boarded, we found aboard to our surprise
a man missing some teeth, and attracting the flies
and his eyes full of fire, 'twas then that we knew
it was Hideous Penn, he'd forgotten his crew!

With a shout he drew sword, and entered the fray
and he thought for sure that he'd drive us away
He meant clearly to send us to Davy Jones' Locker
and we knew at that time he was well off his rocker.

Old Penn fought with valor, but lacking much sense
for he thought that four men on his own he could fence
he battled with courage enough for eight men
But with skills for just one, he was smitten again.

As we pillaged the hold, I felt a bit guilty
Surely sailing alone, such a swab could get kilt-y
when ye sail the seas, and it's pillage yer seeking
Don't forget to bring crew, lest yer innards be leaking.

I knew there was a ballad for hideous Penn, but I couldn't find it, being on pp-nest would be why.

All I could find was the excellent Ballad of Romantic Jon
