Corsairs
CORSAIRS-1.jpg

The Corsairs of Tar Vielca are the scourge of the southern Wyn Myr ocean; a region known as the Shining Sea. For centuries these vicious and cunning pirates have sailed their fleets across the oceans and raided southern coastal regions of Corwyn. Most Corsairs are Eloysians, with a trademark shaved head except for a long single hair braid. The Corsairs are also heavily tattooed, and wear silks and leathers instead of heavier armor, for they are foremost a sea-faring people. Over the years, the Kingdoms of Ralas, Serathyr, Kendar, and Rennsfar have battled the Corsair fleets. The Corsairs were once led by a ruthless leader known only as the Pirate-King; who launched a series of raids into Corwyn known as the War of the Saltmarsh. The Corsairs lost that conflict but returned to wage the Second War of the Saltmarsh. Even today, the Kendarum Navy escorts ships between Stonehaven and Shard because of the threat of these pirates. The Corsairs have even attacked other pirate settlements; including Freeport and Scuttlecove.
