Chapter One: The Pirate King

They say the moon did not shine on the night Tattersail the Pirate King (and Hognut, his wizard accomplice) stole the cursed timepiece from the Absinthine Guild of Alchemists and left their bronze tower burning on the sea-cliffs. The long guns sparkled bright and warm in the darkness, just like a Christmas tree.

Now, you already know that the pair escaped into the west. But revenge travels far indeed, and in the third year of adventuring beyond the map, Tattersail lost his ship Iphigenia to the alchemists’ scheming.

This, of course, is the story of how he won her back.
