Introductory Story: A Bad Night in the Shambles
Enter the Savage Earth!
What is the Savage Earth?
The Savage Earth is a role-playing game using the Hero System rules. It is a setting of fabulous lost technology living alongside high magic and barbaric splendor.
Where is the Savage Earth?
The Savage Earth is our own planet in the distant future. Some great catastrophe has tipped the planet on its side, throwing the world into ecological chaos from which only now is civilization re-appearing.
When does the Savage Earth take place?
None know for sure, for all records were lost in the time of the Demon-Kings, when the world was ruled by beings of vast power and cruelty. The Demon-Kings are gone now, banished by the Prometheans, but their technology lives on.
Who lives in the Savage Earth?
Many different kinds of people. Humans, certainly, but the arts of the Demon-Kings gave speech and thought to animals, who are slowly becoming more human-like. Inanimate objects may also be imbued with motion and thought as well. Civilization is the province of the Adepts, people who have learned to control a smattering of demon King technology by studying the teachings of the Prometheans. The wilderness is a place of high danger, inhabited by hardy barbarian tribes.
