The Great Sea
The Great Sea is a campaign setting that is set in a time similar to our renaissance, but where magic is evolving along side of science. Sailing ships will be found alongside ships that use magic for propulsion. Swashbucklers will use both a pistol and a magic wand. Kings must rule by the sword as well as by the spell.
The known world is represented by six different kingdoms; Leoness, where a teenage king is manipulated by the hand of the Church of the Mother Goddess; Rasten, where a Queen rules with an iron hand over a people who believe she is a born ruler; Urdu, where a nation has broken into several city-states all struggling for control; Talnest’olinor where elven emperors have ruled for time immemorable; Balinor, where dwarves hide their kingdom in ice and stone; and Nakadoon, an empire of the savage goblin tribes.
Powerful organizations span between the different kingdoms; merchant guilds that control different goods and the ships to transport them; pirates whose ships raid the waters of the nations for prizes; and societies of all kinds with their own special interests.
It is a world where great achievements in art and science occur alongside achievements in magic, where a beautiful poem might bring as much fame as a powerful spell. It is a land where adventure awaits.
