This is something I do a lot with my home group when I'm writing stuff to give them an idea of the world they are about to step into, like quotes from books in the lands they tread or quotes from famous people, history books, or holy tomes and what not. I think of it like those little quotes you get sometimes to lead book chapters like The Call of Cthulhu where we get the "Strange aeons" quote from and I wanted to see if anyone else does this and would like to share. I've got one I just did recently below and am interested to see what others throw up.
"The lands of Jaddah are unlike any other in the Frontier, a land of mists and veils. Here men smoke pipes that spew mist that acts like smoke while women dance in scarves that cut like knives. The smokemist is thick and dances like women, and the dancers slip past your fingers like smoke. In this land what is real and what is illusion is anyone’s guess, the mists hide what is and is not real."

Anyone else do these, what do you think, what are some of the ones you've written? I'd love to hear more below or share more of mine if people are interested.
