Msg event.pngThe Republic of Salé

The zealous Spanish Inquisition continues to ruthlessly purge and deport the Moriscos, the descendents of converts whom they suspect of hiding their Muslim faith. A large group of wealthy Moriscos from the province of [218.GetName] have fled [218.Owner.GetName] in anticipation of further oppression.

They have settled in Salé, where they have abandoned their former lives and adopted a new profession; high seas piracy. Joined by a host of piratical slavers, the newly formed Republic of Salé is led by the Dutch pirate Jan Janszoon, now calling himself by his Muslim name Murat Reis.

We should take these ambitious refugees under our wing. After all, the enemy of our enemy is our friend.
