Izverg Sibirko



Following the end of World War II, the Soviet government began to face the new challenge of the West: their fight against the workers, against the progress of humanity.  For the next forty years, the militaries of both the East and the West would challenge each other with new and increasingly outrageous technologies.  In the West, they attempted to perfect new weapons such as stealth technology, nuclear arms, satellite missile systems.  While the Soviets recognized the merits of these, they saw an opportunity to improve not only the soldiers’ weapons, but the soldiers themselves.

Dr. Arkaday Vladigerov, a ranking professor at the Academy of Sciences and a distant relative of Lenin, was given free reign by Moscow to create a new soldier, one that was strong and easily controlled.  Vladigerov saw merit in the work of one Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov, a Soviet biologist of the early revolution that was eventually arrested for his so-called dissidence and unnatural crimes.  Using his considerable political weight, Dr. Vladigerov managed to get Ivanov’s research released to his laboratory.  After reviewing the research, Vladigerov concluded that it was not Ivanov’s methods that necessarily failed him, it was the animals themselves: chimpanzees, gorillas, and other apes were of inferior stock.  A greater beast would have to be found.  Unfortunately, he could think of not one that would due.  So for three years, Dr. Vladigerov fiddled with military trinkets like biological weapons and dirty bombs, wistfully dreaming of some perfect creature to create the new Socialist soldier.

As fortune often seems to strike scientific endeavors, in 1948, Vladigerov received a memo from his brother, a colonel in the Red Army.  A Chinese expedition into the Himalaya Mountains had discovered some new species of ape, a large and aggressive breed that seemed designed for icy climates.  The Chinese Communists, busy fighting off the Kuomintang Nationalists, had sent their captured specimen to Arkhangelsk for study.  Dr. Vladigerov immediately caught the next train to Arkhangelsk to study the creature.

The extra-planar citadel of Ansern is named after its mage-founder. Ansern discovered the means to traverse the planar gulfs and created the citadel as a haven for his disciples in the art of planar-exploration. The disciples of Ansern continue his work and explore the countless worlds opened up to them by the work of the mage. They are cataloguing everything they discover in preparation for the greatest volume ever written: the Mondopedia, a book detailing many of the worlds. But the countlessness of the planes means that their book will never be finished.
