Msg event.pngThe Brethren of the Coast

On the island of Tortuga, off the coast of Haiti, a clandestine gathering of pirates and privateers convenes for what will be the first of many such meetings. The assembled captains enter a makeshift cabin begin to draft an agreement.

Some hours later, the captains emerge from their conference and present to their crews the Pirate Code of the Brethren. With these Articles the Brethren of the Coast is founded and united by a code of conduct to be shared, with some modifications, among all crews.

The Brethren have made Tortuga their base of operations. From here they will set out under black sails to terrorize the Caribbean.
