The setting wrote: In a fictional world where magic is the stuff of legends (I haven't named the world yet, and I'm not sure how important it is), there exists an artifact of unknowable power often referred to as "the torch" or "the scepter" to the point where no one remembers where the names come from. Tales and rumors circulate everywhere and no one is sure what the original legends were. It's never been found, but that hasn't stopped dozens of men from going on fool's journeys around the world that never come to fruition. This has led to massive exploration of the world and the discovery of exotic places and goods that would not have been discovered otherwise. At the same time, many of these unsuccessful wanderers are forced to extremes once their expeditions come to an end and their fortunes are depleted.
Or so it has been in the past.
An era of piracy is coming to an end as both industrial and technological revolutions are well underway. Some of those who still practice it have found a smarter way to operate, giving a cut to various governments in an arrangement that grants them powerful backing and security. The rest have been forced to the island of Mallerova, a tiny lawless region which cannot truly be called a country. The government is completely useless and incompetent, and other countries generally leave it alone, as its not worth the risk to root out a few pirates. There is the much more pressing matter of an possibility of war between Hallica and the combined forces of Aquavia and Brundinia.

If you want to collaborate on brainstorming ideas or worldbuilding or whatever, <a href="http://brikwars.wikispaces.com/">the wiki</a> is probably the place to do it.

Perhaps we can come up with something equally simple but more original?
We'll start sometime in the next few days, whatever we decide.
