Freehold

Freehold has traditionally served as a haven for pirates, scoundrels, and those who wish to live free of Kul Tiran control. Now, the Irontide Raiders have brought the city under their harsh rule and are coercing the various pirate crews under their banner. While the pirates gather, a small group of heroes must infiltrate the town and eliminate their leadership to dissolve this growing alliance of cutthroats.

Skycap’n Kragg

Skycap’n Kragg and his faithful mount Sharkbait are the guardians of Freehold, continously patrolling the sky on the lookout for intruders. At least, that is what they’re supposed to be doing. Instead, these two are often found snoozing in their crow’s nest or dropping guano on unsuspecting victims from above.
