In 2016, my friend razorborne from the Magic: the Gathering fan site No Goblins Allowed created a fantasy setting called Fleets of Ossia.

In keeping with this tradition, when I designed my homebrew card sets Solphos and Fool’s Gold, I created a fantasy setting for those cards to inhabit.
Later I wrote an extensive setting guide, which became the basis of several other sketches and writing projects, including The Weight of a Soul itself. I’ve listed these other works in the foreword of the setting guide.
