The Emperor's Old Clothes
Lostorum is a primordial world in the midst of a burgeoning industrial revolution. While magic is becoming rarer and rarer, still some few wield great power, and their machinations can alter the course of history. Wizards, sorcerers, and artificers – secretive and mysterious all – fight alongside musketeers and gunslingers from atop reptilian mounts or mechanical war machines. Men, and the beastly races, delve into the buried secrets of an ancient past, and alternately work together, or compete for the possession of primordial lands. Industrialized cities house millions of souls, rails are laid for steam trains, and airships powered by Aether prowl the skies, or bombard their enemies with cannons and fire. It is a world of War, and the intrigues of wealthy entrepreneurs and power-hungry empires; of mad scientists and genius inventors.
Locked away in the deep places of the world lay the scant remains of an ancient and terrible past; items of vast power, though incredibly rare, speak to the wonders of this, The World That Was.
