The Outislander Red Ships by John Howe

Red Ship Raids were a series of raids carried out by Outislanders to the Six Duchies coast over several years during King Shrewd's reign. Named so after the hulls of their ships that were painted red. The raids mostly took place during summer, the harsh winter storms of the coastal waters kept back even the legendarily vigorous Outislanders. Although similar raids had taken place often during the history of the coastal duchies, the Red Ship Raids became notorious and almost unbearable for the folks along the coast because this time the raiders used Forging as a tactic.
