Æthursday: Distopian Horror in the Iron Age!

Æthursday Form - Letter head

Today’s setting is an Iron Age setting with Gunpowder technology set in a Dystopian Horror.

Alexander’s soldiers and men scoured the corners of the earth in search for artifacts while the young general set out to conquer the known world. Each time a new people was found little parts of their culture was rolled into Alexander’s view of the world, whether he borrowed bits of their mythology, their social structure, or their technology. Alexander was poised to bring into being the most powerful and most advanced civilization since Atlantis before his untimely death.

However, all of that knowledge, all of that science and alchemy, and all of that technology came at a terrible price. In their hubris, the general’s men had not listened to the guardians of ancient cairns and temples in the far corners of the world. These people were the protectors of many, keeping ancient evil at bay and making sure it still slumbered. With their warnings unheeded, the ages-old wards were broken and the evil was set loose upon the world.

This week’s Random Setting is a Dark, Age of Exploration Steam Opera. Enjoy!

It’s 1584. The skies and seas are filled with great ships as they go to explore the world, moved by gigantic steam engines. Fire and Iron control the skies and sea and air. Great steam driven caravans dominate the land as they stretch from Calais to Shanghai. But with new technology and new travel comes new dangers.

A group of pirates and slavers known as the Ivory Band are waging a war against commerce, travel, and explorers over Africa and the Americas. With resources running thin, England and France set aside centuries of uneasiness and they form a military league. Prussia is considering joining, as is Spain and Italy, due to massive losses in the New World. The few colonies established in the Western Hemisphere are turning less into money making endeavors and more into fortified military posts. The Native Americans are also having some serious run-ins with the Ivory Band, as are several nations within Africa.
