Skull & Shackles
When most people think of pirates, they think of the
Shackles. Not only do the fiercest and most bloodthirsty
pirates call the Shackles home, but the region’s prosperity
relies on piracy. Those Shackles citizens who aren’t pirates
themselves support the pirate trade with inns, shops,
warehouses, and a variety of other services.
The pirates of the Shackles have tradition and experience
on their side. The concentrated piracy of the area has
allowed captains to maintain impressive ships and hardy
crews, and would-be freebooters compete to crew the most
well-known ships. The cooperation of the Free Captains
allows information and plunder to move from port to port,
creating a network of pirates who can ally in times of need.
The pirates of the Shackles bear no love or trust for each
other, but support each other when called on by a Free
Captain or the Hurricane King.
