The Heart of Winter    Locations  (Area)   (Tundra/ Arctic)

Perhaps you've heard of Winter's Gem, and of the tragic fate of the Lady Karina. And perhaps not. It is, after all, a tale unspeakably old. Yet the Earth does not forget, and those of us who guard it do not wither...

Nine thousand years she has slumbered, while Winter diminished. So obsessed was He in her care, that He allowed Summer to run unchecked. His power dwindled, and Summer grew. There is a great unbalance in the world, young ones. One that I fear will break the back of the Earth itself, if not addressed. Winter must return. It is the Way.

The Players Cult    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (World Wide)

"If you take out all the bullshit about the machines and the crappy prophecy, The Matrix was pretty close to the truth.  Just think about it for awhile and you'll see how much sense it makes.  And really, if you were trapped in a game and couldn't wake up, wouldn't you want to know the truth?  So you could do something about it?"

" . . . Still haven't convinced you, huh?  Here, tell you what: I'll give you my card.  Whenever you feel like learning the real truth of this world, give me a call.  I'll show you the ropes."

In a world where mutant powers are real, not everyone can be a Storm, Cyclops or Wolverine.  Here's a list of super powers for those who were a little less lucky.  They probably won't want to be sharing them anytime soon.

The Hellephant    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)
DNA can be a funny thing.  Flip a gene here and the resulting offspring is sterile.  Twist this one around and the kid winds up twice as big as either parent.  And this one?  Lets just say that there‚Äôs a reason why some genetic experimentation is very, very illegal.

The bloated corpse of a decaying gigantic creature is necromatically enhanced and fused with an undercarriage for use as a grisly and terrifying airship. The methane gas from tissue decay keeps it buoyant in atmosphere, but it can be even more flammable than hydrogen if it escapes...
