Flavor Text: Johanna Hard was sentenced to death for piracy, but a well placed bribe allowed her to escape the noose and set sail to once again plunder the Swedish coast.
Name: Kazimierz Lux
Ability: Captain. This ship gets +1 to her cannon and boarding rolls.

Ability: Ransom. Captain. Helmsman. Loyal: Pirates; Hostile: all other factions. Once per turn, roll a d6. On a 5 or 6, this ship may be given an extra action.
Flavor Text: Credited by most as being responsible for the resurgence of piracy in the Baltic Sea, Captain Leviathan has declared a personal war against the empires of Europe until the nations they subjugate are given free rule. He has thus far proven to be a very hard man to catch and has inspired many a sailor to join his cause, whether it be for freedom or for plunder.
Next Friday I shall return bearing unique treasures.
