The basic idea of the world, and game we will play in:
A fantasy world that has been covered by a permanent layer of clouds blocking the sunlight from the Darklands below. The only places left above the clouds are the tops of mountains. Civilization fled to the mountain tops to survive - leaving below the clouds only death, ruin, and darkness.
To get between these islands on the clouds there are sky-ships which float on the clouds. Since the mist split the world into light and dark things have collapsed for society, there is no living space, goods and services are not adequate, and food and water is scarce. A huge source of trade and tools and items and materials come from the ancient ruins beneath the clouds.
The Darklands have no light, except for fire, or natural (magical) light, or some creatures and plants that might glow or shine. Normal plant life can’t exist there, and so there is a scarcity of food - only mushrooms and fungus grows properly in the Darklands. There is only chaos and darkness, no food to sustain large groups, everything below the clouds has devolved into small tribes fighting over land and food.
That’s just a taste. The players can not take magical characters. Magic is very restricted in this game. You are encouraged to create your own cards. This is my first time narrating on Storium, but this is a world I know well. Looking for 3 players.
UPDATE: Thank you everyone who submitted - lot’s of great stories and characters. Unfortunately I can not pick everyone. I have decide to take 6 players instead of only 3, but that is all. I may start a new story with the same world - if so, you are all welcome to submit again at a later time. As for this story… we shall see where it takes us!
