One hundred and sixteen years ago, the Humans came to colonize the planet Nuldorn. Imbued with a strange primordial force, jokingly referred to as “magic” during the early years (then less jokingly later on), this strange planet contained a slew of undiscovered resources, ripe for excavation. The only difficulty was that Nuldorn was already inhabited by a variety of sentient species, approaching the cusp of interstellar travel themselves.
And so the colonization……turned to invasion.
For eight long, brutal years, the assembled races of Nuldorn fought against a technologically superior alien race intent on claiming their planet for the Human Empire. It was a fight that they would lose.
You are a Nuldornian, a member of one of the indigenous people of your planet, and a product of several generations of submission to the Human master race. Whether Gedkin, Cruz, Lirrozix or otherwise, your people are slaves, manservants, and outcasts. But there are whispers on the wind. Echoes of rebellion, murmurs of insurrection. The Humans may have chained and drained your once-proud home, but so long as even one Nuldornian draws breath, the dream of the Resistance lives on…..
Hello there. This will be my attempt at creating an entirely new universe, and I would like you to help build it. The story takes place on an alien planet called Nuldorn, taken over by Humans. Make no mistake, in this game we are the enemy, the conquerors, the tyrants. You cannot play as a Human, only as a Nuldornian.
As this whole story and its environs will be created from scratch, I am looking for imaginative, creative people to fill it with detail. If you wanted the chance to define both your character and the world he/she lives in, this is it. I am looking for 3-5 players who enjoy detail and depth to their stories and are willing to demonstrate this with some strong character submissions. Feel free to create locations, religions, anything you need to flesh out your character!
I am a big fan of connecting images to all Storium cards, so if you want to create your own Natures, Strengths etc, please ensure you do at least this. The images for the character’s themselves do not have to look EXACTLY like the example races - I appreciate these might be hard to find. If you can get a close approximation, great.
The world of Nuldorn is a grating collision of magic and technology. Magic is a nebulous essence, permeating the planet as a whole. Those who can actively wield it are uncommon, but by no means rare. Humans cannot use magic, but they make up for this with superior tech. Any of the Nuldornian races can use magic, but please do not make a godlike character - if you want to give your character big magic powers, I expect to see that same character have massive weaknesses (and I don’t mean weaknesses like “must protect the innocent” or “doesn’t respect authority”).
Finally, though the technological level of the setting is semi-distant-future, the core of the story should be focused on character development and world development, and not hung up on future-tech terminology and such.
If you’re still reading by this point, then maybe you’re the player for this story - have a look at the options and see what you think!
