Besmara Inquisitions?

I've been looking but can't find them anywhere. I found a dev blog post with sub-domains, but not inquisitions. I was thinking conversion - since it seems everyone gets it, fervor and maybe anger. Has anyone else found a source for this, or have come up with their own?

Besmara does not have a church structure really, which means that inquisitors don't really have a role in Besmara's clergy.

Does Desna? I have a hard time imagining how an Inquisitor of Desna works - and it refers to the 'informal clergy of Desna' - and yet Desna has four Inquisitions.

It doesn't seem as though a church structure is required in order for there to be Inquisitors of a deity.

I imagine an inquisitor of Besmara invoking the pirate code at ALL costs. :)


seeking out chelix spies ;)
ordering pirates plundered that arent vigorous enough in plundering
and yes, making sure the pirate code is followed
to a lesser extent making maps marking shoals, supplyports etc, and keeping track of valuable cargoes

Hunting Cheliax spies is more a Shackles thing than a Besmara thing, but the concept could be extended broader.

"Following the Pirate Code" would be a definite tenet an Inquisitor of Besmara would enforce. Enforced either on one particular vessel, or a vessel that seeks out other pirate vessels, not for their plunder (initially), but to check on their behaviour. If found wanting, then the plundering begins!

Other 'missions' for an Inquisitor of Besmara:
1) Hunting and killing/subduing sea monsters
2) Checking known treasure caches of Besmara and making sure they are still buried/protected/there. If not, tracking down and punishing those who have stolen from Besmara.
3) Keeping watch on people and organizations that would block/stop/tamper with the life of a pirate and/or freedom on the seas. Taking steps to keep the seas free.

"Sea monster hunter" is absolutely the concept I was thinking about with my last inquisitor of Besmara idea.
