Team Epic in A Pirate's Life. Captain Robert was a fair and brave pirate who loved to invent useful items. You can find some of his inventions in his cabin. He made what he called a desk lamp which is basicly a small lantern on a positionable metal rod. He also made a gold capped rum holder. Captain Robert would often cut pieces off of guns and swords to use in his inventions if he did not have the necessary parts.
