Fleets of Ossia (2016)

some sought to understand the cause of the Flood, but none could. the water must have come from somewhere, they reasoned, but where could you store enough water to drown the world? and so as time went by they lost interest in that quest, and in time most records of the Flood were lost. all that remained was the Sea.

In 2016, my friend razorborne from the Magic: the Gathering fan site No Goblins Allowed created a fantasy setting called Fleets of Ossia. In this setting, various isles of fantasy creatures wage war for control of the Infinite Sea. I was fascinated by his setting and so helped him create some supplemental materials for it.

Based on the themes and symbols of each Isle, I designed a logo for each faction.

Fleets of Ossia: War Machines

In my spare time during National Service, I designed a tabletop wargame named Fleets of Ossia: War Machines. This was a naval combat game with units based on the Fleets of Ossia setting.

Fleets of Ossia: Heroes of the Second Flood

I also designed a Dungeon World hack named Fleets of Ossia: Heroes of the Second Flood. This was an attempt to translate the unique races and classes of razorborne’s setting to an RPG. Unfortunately, it was never finished.
