Sea trading and piracy go together like a horse and carriage. It was almost assumed that if you lived outside a city you made part of your living as a leistes or robber. Sea robbers had the advantage of being able to easily destroy all witnesses and evidence...

So it wasn't long after I built some freighters that pirates also appeared, hot on their heels.
Lembi and hemioliai ambush and pursue freighters.

Can sail outlast the pirates' oar muscles?

A motley crew closes on the large freighter, whose crew resists.

But the cavalry is here ! In the form of three pentekonters.

The small freighter is safe now.
