Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port
Aboard this tiny ship....
Speaking of ships, let's talk about travel, science, Archimedes, Final Fantasy, crowns, wars, Egypt, China, and flying academies. That should be enough to convince you that there is a pretty major problem with travel in Dungeons & Dragons and a few other fantasy world's as well.
The edge of the world awaits!
