Science-Fantasy Roleplaying in Earth’s Far Future
“In the last centuries of the Fifth Cycliad, a great malaise began to descend on the lands of humankind. The great civilisations of Earth, which for aeons had seemed on the verge of slumber, now finally began to rot from within. From the edges of the world the ever-present enemies drew close, their hungry claws poised to tear apart the delicate flesh of a fruit a hundred millennia in the harvesting. And all around, a cry arose for heroes, to stand against the dying of the light and save the world from the sins of its past.
The Earth we know is gone, forgotten in the depths of time. In its place is a world of mystery and danger, steeped in a thousand centuries of history and legend, where humankind brushes shoulders with beings and creatures strange and monstrous. The Venerable Autocracy of Sakara, the greatest — and oldest — of the Springtide Civilisations, rules over half the world, led by an immortal God-Emperor whose very word is law. It’s a world of deep, dark forests, brooding mountains, timeworn ruins haunted with the ghosts of the past and the weird monsters of the future. Arcane sorcerers explore strange dimensions, terrible priests wield powers from godlike extradimensional intelligences, and mighty soldiers forge new histories from the ruins of the past. It’s a time of danger, reckoning, and adventure. Welcome to The Chronicles of Future Earth.
The Chronicles of Future Earth will be a full roleplaying game featuring character creation for all the Autocracy’s cultures, including the Jeniri races – the Cousins of Man – and the Esteri Not-Men of Earth. Included are all the Gods of the Great Compact, descriptions of Hsuntakh creations and Paladoi Mindstones, a detailed bestiary, Artifacts of the Ancients, and histories and backgrounds of the Springtide Civilisations.
It is the end of history. Humankind seems on the brink of a final, terrible collapse into darkness. All around, a cry arises for heroes, to stand against the dying of the light, and save the world from the sins of its past. Will you answer the cry?
