“A kill within every ten steps,

Not leaving traces within a thousand miles,

Dusting off one’s clothes and leaving after the deed,

Hiding one’s presence and name deep.”

The Stolen World, Overview and Codex    Locations  (World)   (Any)

Dedicated to Scras and his Star Whale sub that was my inspiration for setting

The Stolen world is totally wrapped around Scras' Star Whale sub. As I cast about for a direction to go after I ended my very long running Mysantia game. I took the basic concept of the Star Whale and am using as the basis of all the game logic of the setting. What would a world look like that was subjected to regular apocalypses every 1000 years and why is there no information available to the pc's on how to stop them.

A general overview of the Stolen World and a codex of the submissions so far
