Thesta: An Heir Denied
Not much is known of these mysterious pirates. Their ramshackle ship is said to be patched together with flesh, felled trees, and whale bones, only attacking ships in the dead of night. Each ship attacked has only one sole survivor, they speak sheer madness, stories of skeletal sailors boarding them, killing or capturing the crew, gathering the dead’s viscera, skin and bones, while leaving the valuable goods, before sailing into the darkness.
The frequency of their attacks has dramatically increased after the defeat of Vistahd and the creation of the Isle of Nightmares, rumor has it that they are now based there, reinforcing their undead numbers and taking any unfortunate living prisoner to a terrifying fate.
