From the introduction:
Welcome, Traveler, to a world of gods and monsters. A world where riches and ruthlessness abound in equal measure, and where one misstep may spell your doom… or worse. One where even the mightiest of gods may die, and one where good men may endure torment for inscrutable ills. And yet, one where men in wooden ships lay claim to the world. With luck and skill, forging a worthy path is not entirely out of the question. Indeed, just as many defy these fates as accept them, to triumph over the odds and become living legends spoken throughout the isles.
Your stay in this realm will begin just as the crew of the Silent Mary are released from their forsaken tomb.
