Bay of Thunder

Thunder and Lightning

Pirates and cut-throats prowl the Bay of Thunder and the surrounding waters, searching for unescorted merchant vessels or passenger ships. Many attempts have been made by Landledusk’s navy to rid them from the area but success has been fleeting.

One of the main problems is that many of the pirates are privateers who are in the service of the Hunjâr Royal House, the rulers of Kankulēsis, and often take sanctuary in that realm’s ports. The second issue is that the pirate ships are a lot faster and more manoeuvrable, enabling them to outrun the much slower navel frigates, these ships are known as the Liskertiuns or the Lightning Ships.   


The Coves

The Bay of Thunder is riddled with small isles and coves which serve as strongholds and waystations for the pirates who patrol its waters.


Blood and Thunder

The regular bloodshed and warm waters of the Bay of Thunder ensure that the area has rich supply of sharks, ever willing to dispose of those who overstay their welcome.

The Bay of Thunder

With their Lightning Ships too small to ram other vessels the pirates use ballistae and catapults to bombard other ships with pots of burning oil.

Many ships in the Bay of Thunder have gained notoriety but one of the most fearsome was a ghost ship with no rudder and chains for sails.


Sharks are not the only terrors of the deep that lurk in the dark waters of the Bay of Thunder, sea serpents and krakens are more than just a tale told by sailors.
