Re: 20,000 Leagues

Is it yours? I like it.

Re: 20,000 Leagues

Yes, and thanks! I don’t normally post originals (unless we are already playing them in a session) but I made an exception this time for timing reasons.

Re: 20,000 Leagues

I like it! The second part is very epic-movie-track sounding.

Re: 20,000 Leagues

We played this in our session tonight, and I learned something new about leagues. Most people think it’s a measure of depth, because of the book title "20,000 leagues *under* the sea". But it’s actually a measure of horizontal distance ("a former measure of distance by land, usually about three miles"). TIL.
