Let’s begin. Topic 1. The World. The Book of Sorrows is set on a planet known only as the Fundament, a titanic gas giant, with an endless storm and raging ocean. We learn in Verse 1, Chapter 8, that the Fundament houses trillions of inhabitants. It is also described as a refuge world and suggested that many of the species are migrants, with only a very subtle hint to what brought these species to crash land on the planet. It appears that the continents of the fundament are extremely mobile, tossed about in the raging oceans.
The Fundament contains many threats and dangers. Giant beings live in the clouds, known as Stormjoys. They have tentacles that reach down to the continents and try to lure their victims with light. To the oceans deep below, lie great monsters, they are larger than the continents themselves.
