The Merry Widows are a sect of priestesses of the pirate-goddess Besmara. They have established a temple in the wreck of The Merry Widow, a vessel scuttled off the coast of Slitherfish Island north east of Mediogalti Island, and also live on board the ship.

The members are all women who have lost their husbands at sea. They believe that their menfolk were accepted by Besmara as sacrifices, and consider themselves blessed as a result.

Some Mediogalti women are believed to donate unwanted males to the Merry Widows as sacrifices to Besmara.[1]
