Pirate_Flag.pngYou came to Port Peril looking for glory, adventure and of course treasure. Whatever your reason for being here, it is thirsty work so you made a stop at a tavern called the Formidably Maid. This tavern is home to the worst kinds of scum and villainy – your kind of place. You vaguely remember the ringing laughter of a wild night, the heady joy of success, and the scents of stewed meat and perfume lingering in your nostrils. But those happy memories are quickly fading replaced with a pounding headache, the sickly taste of cheap wine, a hard floor, a rhythmic creaking noise, and the feeling of the room swaying.

You’ve been pressed into service of the pirate vessel Wormwood, captained by the black-hearted knave Barnabas Harrigan. Do you have what it takes to survive? Do you have what it takes to become a Free Captain of the Shackles? Or are you doomed to be food for the Kraken?
