Wolf pirates are based in three step islands.


(Quoted from Guide to Glorantha Page 258 used as fair use)

The Wolf Pirates began as refugee Ygg’s Islanders liberated from the Closing by Dormal the Sailor. Rich in fishing, their islands grew severely overpopulated during the Closing. The situation had grown so bad that they were eating their children when The Sailor arrived. The residents lost no time in contacting their own naval spirit, who sent them the first of the sleek, beast-prowed warships which have since prowled the coasts, rivers, and deeps of the world.

The Wolf Pirates originally allied themselves to the Vadeli and scoured the Neliomi Sea, content to plunder everywhere and send the booty home and to the Vadeli Isles. After the defeat of the Vadeli, the Wolf Pirates spread eastward along Genertela’s southern coasts. Often, colonies were settled as pirates brought their families from the desolate Ygg’s Isles to better homes, notably the Three Step Islands (which had been uninhabited at the Opening), Gothalos in Jrustela, and Ginorth in Seshnela.

The Wolf Pirates declared a brotherhood of equals after they left their homeland. All factors of rank, inheritance, and family were given to the Deep Sea, and instead each man or woman would be judged only on his or her abilities for the fleet. This theoretically egalitarian society is actually run by the toughest and most competent captains, who usually own the best ships.

The most famous of the Wolf Pirates is Harrek the Berserk, a Rathori tribesman who plundered his homeland before fleeing to the Wolf Pirates. He has attracted many other freebooters to his ships and fears no one alive. Harrek is supreme at the Three Step Islands and more or less leads the Wolf Pirates.

No one knows how many Wolf Pirates there are, or how many ships. About two dozen Wolf Pirate ships left Loskalm, and although some have been sunk, others have been built, too. Furthermore, at least as many galleys and round ships have since joined the fleet. There may be as many as 30 to 60 ships in all, though they range all along the southern coast, and have so far never all been in one place at the same time.

The characteristic ship of the Wolf Pirates is a fast and narrow 50-oared sailing ship used for ramming and boarding. They are protected by fierce magical figureheads on the prow (typically a demonic wolf); these figureheads are not only defensive but are known to curse, bind, and even bite enemy ships. These galleys are capable of remarkably quick bursts of speed. Crew: 50 warrior rowers, 5 officers, 1 captain.
