Ironclaw: The Book of Corals
Once uncharted, the islands of Furanthur are now home to the notorious Goldbeard, self-styled `king of the pirates`. By force of personality, by hand, and by nature itself, this bold leader claims dominion over this archipelago, rich in resources and steeped in mystery. Goldbeard dreams of his own empire, and many buccaneers flock to his banner, striking out from these strange ports for rich plunder on the fat merchant-ships. But there is no honor among thieves, and Goldbeard isn`t the only one who would be king. And those who came before, the autochthones native to these isles, have their own wishes before they would bow down before a pretender to rule.
