Malbar and Beyond
The Valhrn Pirates are a group of ruthless seafaring mercenaries. There is little known about their organization and ways. Rumors state their leader formed their group when an Admiral of the Cheliax Navy turned and decided to go rogue, others say he was santioned by King Leros of Cheliax to go privateer and attack the navies of neighbors without consequence to the Kingdom. Still others spread rumors ranging from him being a disgruntled fisherman that used pirating as a way to leave his wife to an undead pirate king. The only truth behind it all is that they do exist, too many stories of their attacks and their actions have come forth to see it as falsity and sea stories. They have not caused much disruption in trade but there are places in the sea that are avoided by ships and mariners. Multiple kingdoms have put bounties on the head of their leader, if a leader even exists.
