The Orcs have long been a scourge of the sea-lanes linking Fundagar to the nations of Elves and Men across the seas. Their black-sailed, iron-plated vessels are a sight all mariners dread, for Orc pirates are vicious and take no prisoners. Thus has a bitter hatred arisen between the Dwarven pirate-hunters and their Orcish quarries. Onboard an Orc ship, discipline is swift and fierce. Any who are found disobeying orders or otherwise unfaithful before the mast face the "dragon's claws", a stout whip with shards of metal at the ends of its tails. The task of administering punishment often falls to the boatswain, who relishes the chance to cleave flesh from bone. Pencil.
