Mirror Road: Premise [Oct. 10th, 2020|02:18 pm]
[Tags|, ]

The year is 1783. It is a time of great revolutions and social change, when futures may be decided on battlefields or in ballrooms. In this alternate Earth, however, the world is teetering on the edge of an apocalypse...but doesn’t yet know it.

Britannia is an alternate Britain where magic is a real, yet little known, force. There exists a shadow world into which mortals can sometimes cross and from which, monsters are born and escape into other realms. For now, the border between the worlds holds strong but as the secrets of magic are lost in Britannia, the spells which keep the Shadow at bay are faltering. One day, these worlds may collide.

As this game progresses, players may choose to what level their character is aware of the Shadow. Some may be caught up in personal struggle, waging war or choosing romance. Others may be chasing the knowledge of magic and hoping to heal the shields that prevent monsters from taking over their world. Still others may accidentally betray Britannia and open the gates for the Shadow to take over, forcing citizens to defend their country from invasion by dark creatures and forces. The plot will evolve as characters are accepted and as players and mod grow and develop the game’s initial setting.

This game is intended to open November 6, 2020 or when the mod determines that there are enough characters/players to begin.
