This world is a work in progress. From the outset, the goal is to combine the following elements:
- Points of light. Large cities and the settlements in between offer safety from the deadly wilds.
- Swords, magic, and guns coexist. Magitech and steampunk technology are not uncommon in developed areas.
- A Western feel. Decentralized law and order. Problems are personal and justice is swift.
- Fully integrated society, with racial hubs as appropriate. All races are available, all races have their respective baggage.
- Every race has at least one genuinely interesting cultural trait or practice.
- Relics of an ancient society, dead for at least a thousand years.
- Gods are nebulous. Saints are real and present, and their power comes from the faith of their followers.
- Factions and guilds operate within the world, and your reputation with them has a meaningful impact on your political standing.
- A land where any sort of story can be told.
