Ahoy J.W. Darkhurst, thanks for joining my site! 🙂 I’m not a huge fan of bringing LotR into Pirates but the game pieces look fair and appropriately costed so far.
Ability: You may unload this treasure at your home island. If so, roll a d6. On a 1, eliminate the crew on this ship with the highest point cost. If this ship has no crew, instead eliminate all crew on one friendly ship docked closest to this ship. On a 6, this treasure is worth 9 gold. On a 2-5, place this treasure face down on the wild island farthest from your home island.

Some very specific abilities, but all based on her story of course. (which is quite interesting by the way, especially considering all the voyages she was a part of) The anti-creature bonus is due to a legitimate whaling incident. XD
