Yes, that's me squeeing in delight because the talented and extraordinary Kaela Torres aka Von Serrot (Osprey Adrift's graphic designer and Chief of Cannibalism) has wrapped up work on all of the card, rulebook, and box files.

Hey, gang! In today's post, I want to share the background and official portrait art for four more of the cutthroat pirates in Osprey Adrift!
