Murder Hobos and the Economics of Piracy

Emily Dresner continues her brilliant look at Murder Hobo Economics over at her Critical Hits blog with a new entry looking at The Economics of Piracy. Piracy or even privateering under letters of marque sounds like it can be an awesome step forward for generating lots of power and loot for player parties, but is it really? In this article by Emily, she talks about the risks of not only sailing, but establishing pirate markets, and some of the potential pitfalls of being a pirate.

If your players are still intent on being pirates, you may be interested in playing in the world of Razor Coast [AL], a complete setting from Frog God Games, which can also be purchased as part of their Customer Appreciation Sale that’s running this week.
