After: A Post-Apocalyptic Fairy Tale.
Once upon a time…
A world embodying the magics and traditions of old world fairy tales flourished. In spite of its sinister and fantastical nature, many inhabitants managed to live happily over the centuries.
The population grew exponentially all across the main continent. Technology advanced in the hands of common people, and although the magic defining the core of their existence never diminished, most cultures changed drastically. New systems of governance developed.
All known peoples coalesced into 3 kingdoms, spanning earth and sea. A great alliance was formed, and Freidan was founded, an incomparably grand city created purely to maintain it. For unknown reasons, as the world changed, fairies themselves seemed to slowly disappear from it.
But that is not our story.
Not long ago, the world fell utterly to pieces. Freidan was the last bastion of order until it too toppled into ruin. Mysterious poison had flooded land and sea, the moon had disappeared from the sky, and an immense war had consumed the civilized world in an avalanche of political tensions hastened by conspiracy and powerful enchantments–but the manner of Freidan’s demise was the strangest yet.
The few survivors of the widespread destruction are now found only in small pockets on a poisoned, shattered world plunged back into the darkest ages of wild magic. But unbeknownst to most, a small mismatched group of strangers is about to set out from the ruins of Freidan on what may be the last adventure of all.
The End has come, but no one lives happily, or forever it seems. Yet much endures beyond the telling of a tale–and that’s where our story begins.
