The World as I Know It (world outline)
All right, lady and gentlemen, as citizens of the world, I’m sure you know some little things about it, like to make a living you have to have money and such silly tidbits as that. Now, here’s the important stuff. My name is Adele Collins. I’m a rather important piratey-lady sort of person who happened to work for an underground crime organization (a ma-fia, to you uneducated individuals) known as the Lylh Albawn (pronounced Lay-lit Al-boon). Don’t talk too loudly about them or you won’t have a tongue for very long. I should certainly know; my head’s almost been blown off more times than you can say “My God that woman’s a cocky bitch!” (Oh, do excuse me, I curse).
Right along we go! You are now my fine, fit, employees on my ship Ataullah (pronounced ata-toll-la). Since we deal in shady dealings, working with a modern, sophisticated manner of trade, I would suggest being cautious of the World Navy. These fellows haven’t ruined my fun yet, but I imagine they would love to try harder. Some of the individuals to be particularly cautious of are Lord Admiral Dracolnir. Might sound fat and lovable, but, trust me, he is rather the negative fellow when startled by a woman with adorable horns. Ideally, you, me, and your progeny will never run into him.
Now here on this outfit there will be handling useful weapons of the highest caliber. Guns and rifles are welcome, as are swords, throwing … things, and magic explosions. I don’t know how you got your magic, and, usually, I will not care. If you start being loopy because you’re a Deva or a member of their Whale-Worship religion who’s stream-swim happy, then we might have an issue.
