The Zhentarim Expedition
Among the southern tropics and all the seas are pirates. Groups that steal, pillage and horde all the wealth they can. the pirates patrol the seas and find sea vessels that are worth plundering, whether because they are an easy target or because they promise to hold great wealth. The pirates, though lawless, have their own code of honor and a sort of council of their own. The pirate lords are a group of always 8 pirates that command their own fleet of ships. They meet when a truce is needed or when a ship is sunk by another to decide whether punishment is due. They also meet to police one another since none truly trust each other. t
The pirate lords meet massive fortress island in Dead man’s cove known as Praemunitio. Where they each have their own port and personal stronghold.
