It has been
over 500 years since humanity figured out Planar travel and crashed
into its first contact with another planar race, the Rhox. Having somewhat been prepared for potential
first contact, the humans wasted no time in trying to exert some dominance. What was supposed to be an ordinary planar take-over, turned into a year long fight for survival, on both parties. Although the humans were new to planar travel
and battle, they had quite advanced weaponry and tactics. On the other hand, the Rhox had the
homefield advantage, resulting in what would seem a deadlock. After some advanced diplomacy from both sides,
there was ultimately called a truce.
Humanity was eventually able to settle some lands and harbor a PlanarGate. Although there is still minor animosity between the Humans and the Rhox, the two races in due course have become amicable and work to advance together, over the centuries.
Fast forward three centuries from First Contact, and humanity has progressed significantly, and so has their collective expanse. They are now a member of the Planar Imperium, a governing body of the many races throughout the planes. Although, this did not come easily. Many of the other races believed that humans are brash, headstrong, impulsive, and harbor a sense of entitlement. Ironically, these are similar traits to what got them elected into the Planar Imperium in the first place.
Unfortunately, this peaceful and prosperous existence did not last for the entirety of the cosmos…
It has been roughly a century since the Purge nearly wiped existence from the Planes. In what seemed like engineered poetry, Planar stars started simultaneously falling out. One after another, planes and empires were just vanishing, scrambling to escape and survive.
There has been very little explanation as to what may have caused this, more conspiracy theories than known facts. Some believe an ancient god-like race has awoken from eternal slumber to regain control of the cosmos. Others feel that it’s a ploy from the Planar Imperium to put a strangle hold on the out-world dissenters. Whatever the reason, one thing is for sure, the Planar Imperium and the rest of known life is in disarray, and in a fight for survival.
Planar travel is all but gone. Habitable planets are far and few between, and growing more barren as the years pass. The PlanarGates that once serviced the planes are lost and forgotten.
But, there is rumored hope. That of a great planar station, Bastion. All that who are able to find and reach it are said to live in peace and prosperity once again…__________________________________________________________________________________________________Welcome to my epic saga, Bastion. Here you will embark on a heroic journey to recover and rebuild the PlanarGates, all the while doing your best to discover what had ultimately caused the Purge.
The beginning is simple, create a legendary creature with a 4cmc or less. They can only be one of the following races: Human, Elf, Rhox (Rhino), Goblin, Loxodon, Leonin (Cat), Centaur, Bird, Kithkin, or Viashino. This is for storyline purposes. Please give a small background detail of yourself and why you would be partaking on this grand adventure.
This is gonna kinda revolve around the Planechase cards, except I will be creating my own planes, not using the Wizards planes.
The Saga will begin on 22May.
