Nomad is a multi-world high fantasy setting, that covers multiple genres. Worlds very from Medieval fantasy, technological cityscapes, undead war-zones, and strange and outer-worldly environments.
Several key concepts link these worlds together.
- Magic is everywhere, highly advanced civilizations treat magic among the established sciences, while more primitive cultures live in fear for the unknown powers of the cosmos.
- Living creatures have souls, these are how people interact with magic. It is assumed that all living creatures have the ability to manipulate magic in some degree, if not the talent or training, then by passive biological functions.
- Material worlds are contained within small planes of existence, its boundaries acting as the sky. Suns, moons, and stars are opening in the planes to other realms.
