How to Identify

The Villainous Bounty Skull can be easily identified by its shiny gold coloration as well as the bright green glow coming from the runes drawn upon it as well as from within its cranium. The top of the skull is shattered into four pieces, which float above the hole on top. A bright green light shines from within, and can easily be seen from a distance, especially if placed on the deck of a ship- wary players should take care to store this skull below deck to avoid the hungry gaze of other players.
