[whY] Quote #2

“We came to existence during the collapse of your reality. Born from your fear, your lies, your sins. Now we just wait. One day - and that day is near - we will rise and devour your souls, just as the Womb - the Machine - devoured your world. Fear not, as it’s pointless to fear the inevitable.”

[whY] General mood of the setting

Well, this time I will try hard to provide you with something more than gibberish quotes and cryptic random tables. However, I prefer to create stuff in a form that will be easy for you to cherry pick the parts that should suit the best your campaigns. So, it can still be a bit confusing and unclear. But I like it as it is.
  • Almost exactly one thousand years ago some unspeakable cataclysm shredded the world to pieces. The old order is shattered.
  • Space-time was ripped apart, the remains are now called the Shards. Moving between them is complicated and dangerous.
  • Humans are not the only inhabitants of the Shards. There are the Unliving - hideous mix of flesh and machine, the Demonic - hybrids of men and extra-dimensional entities and the Inhuman - various generations of mutants. Most of them are hostile towards mankind.
  • The Guild controls the world. They are old, very old. Perhaps predecessing the Fall. Their oppresive rule stretches over most of the Shards.
  • The Hollow Ones were the masters of the world before the Fall. Now they are gone (here you can read the old post about them - however, you should bear in mind that many things may change).
  • Number of Shards is hard to determine - some may appear for the first time, some can vanish without a trace. Only few of them are explored, even smaller numbers are inhabited.
  • World is a dangerous place, full of anomalies, monsters and other perils. But people still want to delve into the unknown, looking for knowledge of the past and artifacts of old.

[whY] Quote #1

“One thousand years ago there was the Fall - a cataclysm which destroyed the world. We have been betrayed, millions have died. We were plunged into darkness, lost everything. 
Now the backwards, primitive descendants of once great live amongst the ruins of the old order, on the Shards, the only remains of our reality. We are exposed to the unspeakable evil of the Inhuman, of the Unlife, of the Demonic. 
The end is near. 
At last.” 
Koaash, Overlord of the Red Pit
