Though its past is mired in pain and destruction, its future looks ever brighter. So hail, Teicna; above all else, a land of survivors.
On Content and ToneThe world of Teicna was designed with variety in mind. Readers, writers, GMs, and players can all turn to fantasy for different things, and the goal here is to be able to provide possibilities for most of them. For escapism, there are peaceful backwaters and uncharted jungles to explore. For the 'gritty' types, there are ongoing wars and crime-ridden metropolises. There is precedent for everything from noir crime solving to romantic getaways to scenes straight out of a horror movie.It's important to note, however, that many of the articles throughout this world will have at least some focus on how fantasy people would cope with real-world problems. If you turn to fantasy to escape from violence, bigotry, ignorance, and the rest of life's ills, be aware that while these elements are not the driving force behind the setting, it was designed with their existence in mind, especially in societal contexts. That said, there are certainly numerous individual stories and locations where these elements would be far less prevalent, so hopefully there will still be something you find fun and inspiring within the myriad cultures and characters of Teicna.
