Cover Photo: A photo of an old-fashioned bar. On a green awning over the bar, the words "DAVY JONES BAR" are spelled in gold letters across a green background. A sword, barrel, and tiny skeletons decorate its corners. Vintage tankards hang where glasses would be. A single man sits on a stool in front of it.
