One of the new generation of pirates, appearing in a rickety old frigate that he acquired from who-knows-where. Blackhand is a goblin and he captains a (largely) goblin crew. His good fortune, if not skill, has become legend along the Coast. He wields a strange firestick, found on one of his many lucrative raids, that he has named ‘Smoking-Death’. It is this weird weapon that has given him his name; it produces so much smoke and ash that it has stained his hands a deep and violent black.
