OriginEdit

Benjamin Hornigold was an English pirate active from 1715 to 1718. His second-in-command was Edward Teach, today best remembered as Blackbeard. He was careful to not attack any British ships, maintaining his status as privateer so he wouldn’t be seen as a traitor and executed. However, his crew voted to attack any vessel, which Hornigold vetoed. He was replaced as captain and Teach sailed to the Caribbean by himself.

Hornigold’s own destination was the Bahamas. There, he was pardoned as a pirate and became a pirate-hunter for the governor. He spent the next 18 months chasing after former allies, including Stede Bonnet, Jack Rackham and even his old chum Blackbeard. His ship eventually banked itself onto a reef, wrecking it and killing Hornigold.

EffectsEdit

The hat allows the wearer to persuade anyone they talk to do whatever they want. This can be anything, even if it goes against their moral compass. However, it does not change a person’s body language,; an expert in the field may not be swayed by it.
