Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
The Brotherhood of the Coast
The Brotherhood of the Coast is a band of pirates that preys on ships near Montaigne and Vodacce (and to a lesser extent, Avalon). The leader of the group is a Castillian named Allende, and his ship is the Hanged Man. His known tactics are fairly straightforward: approach a merchant ship, fly his colors, and expect surrender. Most captains prefer to simply lose their cargo than their lives in a battle with the Pirate King.
