Crown & Anchor is a sci-fi/fantasy maritime tale about three bumbling bounty hunters and their accidental acquisition of legendary Divine Tokens, dating back to the creation of their world. With value beyond human comprehension, containing mysterious and miraculous properties, and being highly sought after by a secret Pirate Conclave, these hunters must discover the relics' purpose without losing themselves... or their lives.This story contains themes such as finding family, adventure, corruption, agency, and contains a vast network of mail-delivering seagulls.
A world once united by one landmass and close with the gods, Aventus now lies in innumerable islands - most unexplored, or kept quiet. Fragments of old temples and cities lie scattered across the water-dominant globe. Rich history and secrets lie under every flippin' rock, and has left many yearning for a taste of adventure - as well as investing in rocket-launching blunderbusses and cool hats.
Or... battle tigers. We won't judge.
This volume introduces Hebb, Mact, and Skitt as they receive an ancient relic known as a Divine Token from Pirate Lord, Nax. As they try to uncover the truth about this relic, we meet new friends, enemies, and start to feel that there is more to Aventus than happy pirating.
