The Blade of the Raven Queen
The Freebooters were once loyal Zingaran subjects, given legal charters as privateers to prey upon Argossean shipping and to halt the depredations of the Barachans and the Islani. Fierce Zingaran independence soon reared its savage head and the Freebooters went renegade, preying even upon their own country’s ships. This treachery did not endear them to the Zingarans. The Freebooters are not welcome in Zingaran ports and more often than not these renegade pirates will find themselves hanged should they be found there. Similarly, they can find an unwelcome reception at Tortage in the Barachans and so have made their bases on remote, mostly inhospitable flea-speck islands about the sea. An uncounted number of islands could lie off the shores of Zingara, Argos, Zamora and the Pictish Isles that are either not large enough to be depicted on the standard maps or have simply been forgotten.
