Horrors of Haalasholm
Argosy of the Open Waters
The Argosy of the Open Waters are a faction of pirates who specialize in ship to ship combat, boarding and looting. They ply their work along the intercontinental trade lanes, targeting large, heavily armed merchant vessels. Argosy vessels tend to be mid-range ships with light, veteran crew and maximized storage space. Typically they attempt to close with targets, board and subdue them with minimal bloodshed and sail away with their cargo, leaving them enough supplies to make it back to port so that, godswilling, they can rob them again later.
Argosy captains are individually formidable opponents, typically mighty fighters but with several sorcerers and rogues counted amongst their ranks.
