NAPSTAR, THE ARCH-THIEF & THE TORRENT OF SOULS
All men know the legend of Napstar the Archthief, the pirate of the sonic seas. The technocrats, in their hubris, weaved together their unfathomable magics into an all-encompassing net, aiming to finally enthrall all men to their will. This net, though not a big truck, nor even a series of tubes, allowed for near instantaneous transfer of the Song, much to the Technocrats chagrin. Napstar was the first to navigate this ether net, bringing the Song to all who would listen. Though the first and most glorious, Napstar was joined by many, including the pirate Kazaar, and the order of the Verdant Wire.
This piracy split the gods into two camps. Those who were subsumed by the infinite greed of the technocrats, gathered beneath the Tyrant himself, and they called for Napstar's head. Some gods, felling a connection to their mortal subjects, followed Napstar's ways, allowing the Song to flow through the web unhindered.
Eventually, the Tyrant, with the aid of the Technocrats, cornered Napstar. Though he fought bravely, he was eventually captured. He was brought to the guillotine in front of the scores of men he brought the Song to. And as the blade fell, Napstar was completely silent. But the anguished roars of the crowd were powerful enough to warp the web itself, creating an ever spinning roil, now known as the torrent of souls.
Thousands of men became pirates that day, demanding that the Song be free for all men. They traverse the torrent, taking what they want, giving what others need, invoking the wrath of the technocrats. The war between the Pirates and the Technocrats rages still. The Technocrats just recently managed to rip the Pirate Bay out of the ether-net, decentralizing the pirates. Who knows how this war will end, with freedom and anarchy, or oppression for legality?
