The sun is big, red, and flickering like a dying light bulb. Ruins lie a mile and a half deep just about anywhere you'd care to dig. The Golden Age of Wizardry was about three Aeons ago, and only the flimsiest fragments of their greatest works remain known.
This is the 21st Aeon, a pleasant period in many ways--all the greatest villainies of history lie in the past! There are no wars anymore, most archmages keep to themselves in their nymphoriums, and in general people would rather eat and drink merrily than fight (except of course deodands and pelgranes, and their opinions don't count).
Luckily, there are still many, many opportunities for adventuresome folks. You just need to get free of these ropes first...Based on the Dying Earth stories by Jack Vance, this game lies somewhere between Toon, Paranoia, and Hackmaster in feel.
