Guide to WE articles and WorldEmber 2020 Pledge
The crossroads, where History, Magic and Time-Travel meet...
First 6 articles starting with "Rules of Causality" until "Zamandar" explain Time Travel, it's rules and those who, well, travel in time. The next 5 articles starting with "Borrowed Resurrection" until "Germanic Wyrms" - are all historical, they show some commonly known events with Fringe Earth spin on them. 5 more articles starting with "Magical Decay" and until "The Enlightenment" - are the "entropy cycle", they tell us the tale of all magical and wondrous things slowly disappearing from the face of the Earth. 4 more articles that start at "The Brooch of River Neman" and end with "The Deserter" are connected to the D&D game show I'm planning to launch in January. And the last 4 articles are quite random, but they explain some small things in Fringe Earth, help me set the tone a little bit.
What is Fringe Earth?Imagine soldiers in full modern gear, with M16 assault rifles and fragmentation grenades fighting a three-headed dragon. What about a Hospitaller crusader with magical healing powers? Or an Ancient Egyptian sentient lizard roaming streets of 2020 Zurich. These aren't fantasy anachronisms, but a normal situation in Fringe Earth, an up and coming Campaign Setting developed for recorded and streamed D&D games. Fringe Earth is a symbiosis of History, Magic and Time-Travel. I plan to establish this setting here, on WorldAnvil, and I aim to make it easy to run for all those who are interested.
WorldEmber 2020The contest appears to be a great launchpad for establishing basic information about Fringe Earth. The main articles about the game will be written during WE, and those will provide a framework for "VICISSITUDES OF TIME", the first recorded campaign of the setting, which is currently in post-production.
About the authorMy name is Andrew, though many people prefer to call me by my nickname - Teyvill. I'm an ex-journalist, I was specialized in International Affairs. After about 10 years of work in the field, I've decided to quit and go into Game Development. Now I'm working as a narrative designer in a game studio, and I've got plenty of time for my own projects such as this one. My players and I, we dream of making the story of this Setting a fun one to watch and engaging enough to play through some of our modules ;) So, let the boulder roll as we're approaching WorldEmber!
