World-357.4.GM-13: A Land of Guns and Sorcery

By default, swords come standard on fantasy worlds. On this one, personal firearms (both handguns and long-arms) are more common. They are reliable, portable, and have replaced nearly every other kind of weapon. Society naturally changed due to the introduction of guns some few hundred years ago. Castles (and other hard forts) are less important. …

World-418.4.DA-22: A Neozoic World of Airships and Dinosaurs

As the Earth died around them from ecological exploitation and violent wars, one city kept itself armored behind a force field dome. While this protected it, they would eventually run out of non-renewable supplies, leading them to a daring experiment to plane-shift themselves into another reality whose world was younger and still ecologically viable. They …

World-867.7.AD-7: A Vault-Demiplane for Storing Away Powerful Objects

Occasionally, either WMDs or magical artifacts are made that are too powerful and dangerous for the world on which they originated. The denizens of those worlds or the powers that be entreat angelic beings to lock such threats away, trusting they will thereafter not fall into the wrong hands. The massive treasure store of this …

World-417.5.DD-5: A Surface World Burned by Dragons, Reclaimed by Dwarf Engineers

Dwarves lived underground because the surface races of humanity, orcs, and elves were wiped out by gigantic fire-breathing dragons.  Easily over ten meters long (or much, much larger) and while not intelligent but possessed of powerful fiery breath, they scoured the world by eating people and burning all terrestrial civilizations. Only in the last hundred …

Local Group-757.4.SC-10: A Universe Home to Alien Superheroes and Cosmic Beings

This was a modern world of superheroes and supervillains.  For those people their superpowers came from alien physiology or "cosmic" forces (incomprehensibly advanced science and technology) from outer space.  The multiverse scholars who studied this world note that it was occupied by large numbers of alien civilizations and filled with starships, and system-scale post-singularity A.I.  …

Sol-506.5.TT-2: An Earth of Highly-Trained and High-Tech Superheroes

This was a modern world of superheroes and supervillains.  For those people their superpowers came from extensive training, advanced technology or super-soldier conditioning.  The multiverse scholars who studied this world note that it was occupied by vigilantes, cyborgs and robots and filled with criminals, paramilitary organizations and nascent space colonization.  While superhuman activity was world-wide …

Galaxy-608.3.DP-7: A Constellation of Star Systems Under the Rule of Dragons

The dominant species of this galaxy are dragons.  Though lacking any natural ability to breathe fire, they are intelligent and have front claws that function like hands, allowing for dexterous tool use.  This ingenuity, combined with their strength and size (four meters tall and with a five meter wingspan), made them the dominant technological power …

World-427.5.AH-3: A Backwoods of Skirmishes Between Men and Beasts

People have the heads of animals.  Usually the kind of animal head they have is indicative of what their personality is (dog indicates loyalty, lion indicates strength and courage, etc.), but sometimes it's the opposite of what you'd expect.  Regular animals have their regular heads; no person has a human head. The things that have …

Earth-607.4.US-51: A ‘Merica of War-Fighting

After officially changing the country's name to " 'Merica," the army began enlisting the mercenary power of cowboy gunslingers, superhero soldiers, and rough-and-tough bikers, among other iconic men and women of raw Patriotism.  Each is outfitted with super-science technology, turning them into a one-man army to push for the spread of Freedom across the Earth. …
