[Pirates] are criminal [Sailors] who attack and rob ships at sea.

Pirate Factions[]

In Innworld, [Pirates] are grouped in several factions, and are often intense rivals with each other, such as Drowned [Pirates] and regular [Pirates]. While independent crews certainly exist, there are larger factions that may have a bad or good reputation among their peers - this may be based on power, wealth or honor depending on how these groups prioritize those things.[1]

The self-styled [Stormlord Captain] Imor Seagrass rules over much of the sea with his vast armies that actually ensure trade. However, it is suggested that his origins lie in the [Pirate] business, and that his protection doesn't come for free.[2]

The Siren, Revine of Savere, harbors [Pirates] in her waters and relies on their forces, sending raids as far as Zeres.[3]

Non-Pirate Sailors and Navies[]

[Storm Sailors] are not [Pirates], but it is the only known specialized class available to regular [Sailors]. However, [Storm Sailors] aren’t always honest; they can turn to piracy, but don't gain the class. Additionally, some Drowned Folk or those with some aspect of the sea can still be [Storm Sailors].[4]

There are several factions and groups that patrol the oceans and fight [Pirates], among them are the following (land-based) nations: Zeres, Nadel, the Iron Vanguard, the Minotaur navy, the Drathian navy, the navy of Pheislant and the Thalassocracy of Medain - not necessarily listed here in order of their power. Other potential dangers to [Pirates] are Wistram and Roshal, "if you're at odds with them". However, in the grand scheme of things, land-based powers and their navies are not really considered true dangers by [Pirates]; there are dozens of things out at sea that are worse.[5]
