SWORDSFALL - AN AFROPUNK SCI-FANTASY SETTING
Swordsfall is a setting born from a mixture of love and frustration with fantasy lore. The focus point of a lot of the Low or High Fantasy that we have come accustomed to all has a distinct Eurocentric flavor to it.
It's been something that a lot of us have grown up with and enjoyed over the years.
World Anvil - The Vinyatian-Garudian Conflict
The conflict between the northern nation of Garuda and the southern nation of Vinyata has been brewing for over a millennium. How did they get here?
The conflict between Vinyata and Garuda runs deep. In fact, the struggle traces all the way back to the origins of Tikor itself. When the corruption god, Xavian, came to drain the young planet of its lifeforce, he set off a chain reaction of events that would continue all the way to the present. Xavian abducted The Elementals of Tikor and used the second sun, Adume twist them into wrathful dragons. He then unleashed upon the world, with the directive to simple ravage it all. These beasts of corruption proceeded to lay waste to large portions of the world. Some of these places are still ravaged and scarred to this day. In Garuda, many people still whisper blame that Ryuujin wasn't much different from the dragon family he helped seal. Despite Ryuujin's sacrifice, The Divinity never accepted him as an ally. The former earth elemental would end up being alienated in the very land he had helped save.
