Game Setup

 Takes place 3000 years after the events of the Elder Evils game
 Populations have rebuilt in the last three millennia
 Magic and the Gods have dwindled drastically, and almost do not exist, save for a few tiny splinter groups who practice and worship
 Steam punk technology reigns supreme
 Humans, dwarves, and orcs are the dominant species—elves and all others are dwindled vastly
 The government of the main land our heroes work in is a parliamentary system. Other governments across the world are monarchies or socialized systems.
 The one religion across all the world now is the Holy Conclave of Tarj
- The Conclave is a strictly monotheistic religion
- Magic of any practice—divine or arcane—is strictly forbidden
- Tarj is a god of alchemical practices
- All Paladin “spells” are actually alchemical in nature. Paladins/Clerics of Tarj must collect ingredients for alchemical recipes to create: potions, elixirs, powders, projectiles, etc. All these alchemic productions would be the divine spells of Paladins/Clerics.
- The only “divine spells” that still act somewhat like magic are anything having to do with prayers.
 Classic weapons still exist, but now early 19th-century-style firearms are available.
 Use of steam-powered vehicles is available:
- Crude internal combustible motor-cars (rare)
- Steam-powered motor-bikes
- Steam-powered boats and ships, commercial, personal, and military
- Steam-powered airships, commercial, personal, and military of various sizes
- Some countries utilize steam-powered meccha in their militaries
- Semi-sentient steam-powered automatons exist
 Playable Races:
- Humans
- Dwarves
- Orcs
- Half-Orcs
- Elves (extremely rare, need GM permission)
- Half-Elves (very rare, need GM permission)
All other races either do not exist anymore, or are in a state of severe dwindling.
