D&D 3.0: Tales from Mystara
Captain Redbeard of the Fire Opal
(Minrothad Human Fighter 10/Barbarian 6, Int: 17),
Redbeard is the captain of the Fire Opal, is not an Ierendi Pirate; rather, he is the bane of many Ierendi Pirates, conducting brilliant raids against Ierendi towns and ships, especially Pirate ships. He is a huge man with copious red hair on his head, face, chest, etc. from the Minrothad Guilds. He also wears all red, except for a silken white undershirt; if it gets stained, he tends to go crazy. (He has the Barbarian levels to reflect his tendency to go totally berserk when angry and his wild fighting style.) Redbeard treats his own crew very well and is quite generous to his friends. He generally avoids killing civilians, but makes Ierendi pirates walk the plank in shark-infested waters. Ierendi has put a very substantial price on Redbeard’s head of 2000gps.
