In The Serpent's Fang, a night spent carousing ends in trouble as the group is press-ganged by ruthless pirates and forced to serve upon their ship. They are forced to accompany the salty brigands in their quest for the legendary treasure of Yarrab McPhail, a buccaneer of fame and fable. Chief among the possessions in McPhail's horde was the mythic Serpent's Fang, a dagger of great magical power. Can they endure the many dangers on the sea voyage and the terror that lurks at the last resting place of the dread pirate McPhail?
