Pirates of the Black Sea
Plot: The players are a crew of pirates who sail the Black Sea, preying on merchant vessels and rival pirate crews. However, their ambitions draw the attention of powerful enemies, and the players must navigate dangerous waters filled with treacherous alliances, deadly sea monsters, and the wrath of the naval powers that seek to bring them to justice.
Act 1: Rise to Infamy The players must build their reputation as pirates, targeting merchant vessels and establishing a network of allies and contacts. They may need to deal with rival pirate crews, bribe corrupt officials, or forge alliances with powerful pirate lords. Along the way, they may attract the attention of powerful enemies, such as naval powers or rival pirate factions.
Act 2: Hunted by the Powers That Be The players become the target of naval powers that seek to bring them to justice. They must evade the naval patrols, outmanoeuvre the powerful warships, and use their wits and cunning to stay one step ahead of their pursuers. Along the way, they may need to deal with sea monsters, treacherous weather, or mutinous crew members.
Act 3: The Hunt for Treasure The players uncover a map to a legendary treasure, hidden on a remote island in the Black Sea.
