Beneath the orbits and atoms of our natural universe lies a network of dark energy. Those who have learned to access and navigate this chaotic sea have discovered an almost endless set of “recursions” in the shoals of our Earth: Worlds with their own laws of reality, reflected from human experience or imagination, given form in the swirling Chaosphere of the Strange. Worlds teeming with life, with discovery, with incredible treasures, and with sudden death.
Everyone on Earth has the spark, but not everyone is Quickened. To be Quickened is to be able to travel to the many vast worlds within The Strange. To know how to get from one point to another, and to be able to will it to happen.
Rumors fly within chat rooms, message boards, and websites about people that are able to access these worlds on a whim. Each of them describing worlds of vast beauty and riches, but not telling how to get there. Each rumor mentioning more and more how to unlock the secrets of yourself and how to opens doors that are unseen or unknown.
Famous hacker Miles Durnboss leaks how people are able to go from one world to the next. He claims, in his rantings, that there are agencies out there are keeping the truth from the public. They say that once something is posted to the internet is can never be deleted and yet, which is why Dunrboss posts up all his information this way.
Officially, Miles Durnboss does not exist. And mere hours after his postings go live, they simply disappear completely. As if something went in and erased all trace of it from the net. Is there a government cover up in the words, or does someone else not want anyone to find out how to become Quickened?
The world is based on Monte Cook Games RPG setting The Strange, written by Bruce Cordell. In fact the entire first paragraph is directly from The Strange Website (http://www.thestrangerpg.com/).
Players will take on the role of characters trying to discover who is Miles Durnboss and how his information just vanishes. They also might want to learn how to become quickened in order to travel between the various worlds.
You don’t have to be familiar with The Strange to play. Also, worth noting, this is my first time narrating on Storium, so please be gentle.
