Poison'd is a RPG about pirates, authored by Vincent Baker and published by lumpley games. The game is notable in that it departs from the typical swashbuckling, idealised vision of pirates as perpetrated by Pirates of the Caribbean and goes instead for a more "realistic" tone. Your pirates rape, backstab, plunder and curse, and how badly your soul has fallen to the Devil's side is part of the mechanic (which resembles Vincent's other games a lot).
The game gained infamy on RPG.net after a report was posted of a session in which PC pirates cut off a cabin boy's head and fucked his esophagus. The players obtained a mechanical benefit from this. Rumours that this session was attended by Vincent Baker were untrue, and resulted from the confusion of the session in question with the first official playtest.
