Daydreaming of Vodacce

Vodacce, 7th Sea’s Quasi-Italy, was always the part of the setting that fascinated me the most – sword-and-knife-fights that go from city roof to canals to piazza and ending in a filthy alley. This is what I’m looking at while day-dreaming of treachery among the merchant princes and fate witches.

I’ve put together images from NYPL’s Digital Collection, all free to use except for the image of Mr. Borgia just below this. True to his family’s history, his use is ambiguous and dangerous.
