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.Continue reading “Fleets of Ossia (2016)”
