After the first big rift in the pirate captains’ alliance, Captain Asqueroso had turned towards the Cult. This organisation is controlled by the mystic Sybiline who is guiding her followers to an as yet unknown goal. Since then, a steady stream of Cultists together with soulless Sansâmes and Cult-sympathising pirates has been emerging from Longfall’s dark corners, trying to grab power for the dark forces.

After the Pirates had successfully driven the Empire out of Longfall, something crawled out of the woodwork which nobody had expected to become a major power. The Cult has resurfaced and these uncertain times provide it with a large influx of new members whose old world is falling apart in chaos around them.
