The man-o'-war Filthy Lucre is the flagship of the fleet of the Shackles Pirates. It is captained by the self-styled Hurricane King, Kerdak Bonefist. Its home port is Port Peril,[1] but it is seldom in port for more than a month as Bonefist much prefers to be at sea than on land.[2]

The ship is one of the few in the Inner Sea region to be fully equipped with cannon from Alkenstar.[3]


At a young age, Kerdak became cabin boy on the Rock Bottom under Captain Keelhaul Thurl, eventually becoming first mate. When the Rock Bottom ran into the Naiegoul, captained by the lich sorceress Raugsmauda, Thurl and most of the crew were slain, but Kerdak managed to slip into Raugsmauda's cabin. No one knows what transpired between them, but when Kerdak left the cabin, the Naiegoul vanished and Kerdak's right hand had become fleshless bone infused with necromantic energy. He renamed his ship the Filthy Lucre and took the name Kerdak Bonefist.[4]
