Glimpses of Hyboria
Pirate Horde (General)
Your reputation and knowledge allow you to gather together a pirate horde to crew your ship. You must be able to lead them to plunder and glory or they will turn on you.
Prerequisites: Cha 13, Leadership, must have 12 levels of pirate class.
Benefit: You may assemble a group of pirates to sail your ship, augmenting your existing followers. You must be in a port of call frequented by pirates and must send out word that you are looking for able-bodied seamen. You will have to expend 100 gl in up front payments each week. Every week that you gather the horde you gain a number of followers equal to your loyal retainers. This crew forms a pirate horde and is subject to the rules governing mutiny
outlined in the Pirates of Hyboria chapter (pg. 4). You may gather a horde for a number of weeks equal to your positive Charisma modifier.
Normal: All crewmembers you recruit beyond your loyal retainers are unaligned pirates.
