Sometimes, when the old sailors start talking, when they are amongst themselves and no outsider can listen in, they will tell stories about the dread pirate penguins that roam the sea. Nobody really knows where they come from, but few of those who have seen them have survived. The problem with those penguin pirates is not only that they sail the seas to hunt for the riches of merchant ships and coastal settlements, it’s not that they can swim rather comfortably to you ship without you even noticing, it’s the prestige. Tell people that you have been raided by penguins and see what it will bring you. So those stories are only shared among the most trusted old sailors, most of which have been raided by them at least once.

Of course another reason is that very often these dread pirates actually are not going for the things normal humans would see as valuable. So instead of gold and jewelery some people have noticed they rather had to hand over all the food on the ship. Which makes the whole “getting-killed-by-penguin-pirates” even more shameful that otherwise. There have been stories about sailors dumping passengers and valuables into the sea, just so they would not have to admit to what happened to them.

    For my own games, I want penguin player characters! (Fight On #2, I think.)

    I saw that. But it was only the Advanced Class, and my players are partially using Race-as-Class. So I was thinking about using a variation on my Duck class ( for that purpose.
