Setting & Campaign Summary

The world of Glade is relatively small planet, chiefly comprised of vast expanses of ocean and three major continents. It is also exceptionally old. Life evolved naturally over the course of billions of years, aided by an abundance of magic pouring into the material world through souls and places of power. The source of this magic is Mobius, the realm on the other side where the Gods reside and the dead rest.

Approximately ten years prior to the events of the campaign, the world was thrown into lurch by a global phenomenon that came to be known as 'the ripple'. This event swept through the world, cutting off the foresight of the clairvoyants. It also radically altered the nature of magic in the world - practices that used to be commonplace such as communing with the Gods, healing the sick and speaking to the dead became near impossible for the average magic adept.

FAQ

Q) Can I use any of the art/assets on this site?
A) I'd prefer you didn't! Any of the art you see here was drawn by one of the players or commissioned by us. If you're using anything for a purely private game (i.e. not going to be posting the borrowed assets on social media), though, I guess I can't really stop you.

Q) Can I use anything as inspiration?
A) I welcome the use of any general ideas you might want to take from here, especially music from the 'soundtrack' page. I'm aware of how difficult it can be to find appropriate music for tabletop and invite anyone to dig through the soundtrack list for anything that might work for their games.
