It is many years into the future. There is no specific date, for the past years have been forgotten. We do no longer call our home "Earth" ..... it is just known as "The Land" for it is the only Land we know.

Somewhere along the line, the human race killed themselves off. Pollution got the better of us, war finished us off. The entire race was thought to be dead, except for a rare few. Those few repented... they gave birth to children, and let them go into the world on their own. Nobody from those days would be able to change enough to save the race.

Many children died, but a rare few did survive. Eventually, buildings crumbled, giving into the earth. There was no more industrialized cities on the earth, there was nothing at all. Children survived off of hunting, and habits that were thought to be primitive. We thought to have gone back in time.

But, as the new Land was formed, new rules applied. Magic began to develop in those who opened their mind enough. Humans thought differently, acted differently, responded differently. We found a way to work around nature, not against it.

It started with 10, but grew to many more. However, The Land was becoming crowded... so we decided to branch off and form our on civilizations separately. It was a bittersweet farewell, but a new beginning for us all.

You are now one of the 10. You have many followers, willing to go with you anywhere. It is your responsibility to form an empire and civilization, lead your people to a good life.

Old Habits die hard, however. Once you have established your city/empire, you can expand territory, grow big... and become a kingdom. Declare war on other civilizations, or make treaties that benefit you both. This is your land!!

By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.

Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.


Give your Universe life by adding a Mob, which are auto-replenishing NPCs your players can interact with. Useful for some quick hack-and-slash fun!

Mobs can be automated spawns, like rats and bats, or full-on NPCs complete with conversation menus. Use them to enhance your player experience!
