Welcome to The Shackles

Your days of labouring under the cruel yoke of Captain Harrigan and his officers are over. In command of your own vessel, the seas are yours to explore and conquer. The Fever Sea is ripe with fat merchant ships waiting to be plucked, their cargo’s paying for better armaments and fiercer crew.

The Shackles are a maze of islands, channels and shipping lanes. But don’t forget that other captains ply the maze of the shackles, hunting their own prey. It is best that you proceed cautiously, snapping at the outskirts lest the hunters become the hunted!
