Free Passages

The Brotherhood of the Coasts, the guild of longshoremen and dockside labourers, gives out tokens entitling the bearer to a free journey to those who render great aid to them. They are in the form of the bones of whales or other large sea creatures, inscribed with the bearer's name and the nature of their deed. These bones are also given to the high priests of Numen Mari and other gods of the sea.

The bones may not be sold or given away, even in a will. If the bearer dies it is expected that the bones will be destroyed. If they are used, they may be affixed to the prow of the ship in question.

They are honoured by all ships, even pirates, since anyone who refused would find all ports closed to them.
