Backstory for the Setting

Thirteen years ago three sisters were discovered working dark sorcery in Ograpog. The witches were sentenced by King Amemnus to be drown with the rising tide. With their dying breath, they cursed Amemnus and his kingdom. As they died a great storm began. The rain continued for months, covering the site of the execution in 50 fathoms of water. Believing the rain would stop with the King’s death, the people of Ograpog turned on their liege and dragged him to the sea to be drown. As King Amemnus died, the horrid bodies of months-dead witches filled with unlife and returned as something far more powerful – the Sea Hags.

Thirteen years later, the Sea Hags keep their lair in the middle of the Devil’s Cross. From this damned region the Hags sent their minions – bloodthirsty pirates, horrors from the depths, ghost ships filled with skeletal crews. For 60 leagues all around the Devil’s Cross the ocean is a slow, sinking whirlpool full of debris from the death of a world. Goods, corpses, shipwrecks and the flora of millions of acres float upon this area, miring ships that try to ply it in its soggy embrace. This area is called the Flotsam Sea.

Not long after the Hags returned to life, visitors from another world began to arrive. They claim to be led here by a mysterious spirit resembling a crying girl. The visitors are called human and they hail from a world called Earth, anywhere between the years 1400-1815.
