About the adventure

Far into the western oceans lie the Gods’ Teeth Isles; a massive, craggy, volcanic archipelago that forms a semi-circle hundreds of miles wide as if they were the fangs of some gargantuan, primordial god. A thousand years ago, pilgrims seeking a new life in a new land were swept by a massive storm to the isles. Hundreds of years have passed and those voyagers have found themselves divided; large, wealthy City-States vie for control of shipping, politics, money, and magic. Some live on the fringes, on islands called the "Berrshaes" where existence is hard, money tight, and death always looming. Further out are the "Roughlands;" places of wild beasts, hidden temples, forgotten treasure, and mysterious lore. You find yourself adrift in this unforgiving chain of islands where you can rise from obscurty to become the stuff of legend by a combination of prowess, guile, and (of course) luck! FEATURES: * Swashbuckling adventures on the high seas with ship-to-ship combat, rakish captains, treacherous villains, and as much rope to swing from as you need in order to make the sceen "cool." * Emphasis on exploration, discovery, roleplaying, and collaborative problem solving. Combat can, and often does, happen, but it is not the primary focus. Some fights you will win easily, some fights can be 'won' with words, and some fights, you will absolutely have to run away from. * A home-brewed world of my own imaginations where the gods are ill-defined, City-States are known for certain customs or classes, and the balance of power can only be shifted through your actions.
