When Worlds Collide
Twenty-five years ago, a newly discovered continent has caused the great kingdoms and empires of the Old World to explore this new land; expand their influence and territory; exploit the resources and inhabitants; and exterminate any threats encountered.
Colonies and settlements dot the western coastline of this new continent; pockets of civilization, in an otherwise savage and dangerous landscape. Life is hard here. The amenities and services taken for granted in the Old World are mostly absent. Death from disease, parasite, or blade is commonplace.
Humanoids make the journey to the New World for various reasons, ranging from idealistic to nefarious and everything in-between.
All newly created characters start in the independent coastal settlement of New Haven.
