Ring of Booty is the third encounter of Freehold.

Adventure Guide

Within Freehold, there is a fighting tournament where the fiercest brigands from across the seas test their might. This rogue's gallery consists of a strange assortment of contenders, but none so fearsome as the current champion, Shark Puncher. Countless challengers have sought to topple the powerful pugilist, but all of them have ended up as chum.


Trothak, the Champion of the Ring of Booty, enters battle using the two sharks strapped to his arms as weapons. Alternating between swinging sharks at nearby enemies and throwing sharks at far away enemies, Trothak is a danger to anyone in his arena.
