Mission Statement: ideally to provide fun, dynamic gameplay with some mortality, rewards, and character development.
“Cut off from the surface and the political and cultural center on the Plane of Water, thrust deep into the Plane of Earth, trapped fragments of several cultures are forced to cooperate and eventually grow together, despite strong differences.
A series of surveys are sent out over hundreds of years in vain attempts to reach the now legendary surface (there doesn’t appear to be one) or hopefully the Capital. The PCs belong to the latest attempt. Armed with the latest biotech tunneling and transport gear, they venture into the underdark; a vast web of caverns said to connect the Planes themselves."
What has Jason been reading lately: Hot House, by Brian Aldiss; Rubicon, by Tom Holland; The Conquest of Gaul, by Julius Caesar; City by David Macaulay.
