The Clockwork Jungle
Genre: High Fantasy, Exploration, Alien World

Imagine a vast forest, stretching as far as the eye can see, interrupted only by mangrove-choked seas, white-capped mountains, and the great volcanic wasteland of the Obsidian Plain.  Here, in a world completely foreign to our own, four races seek to build powerful and lasting civilizations in a world as fierce as it is wondrous and beautiful.  Nature, abundant and colorful, mingles with the ancient ruins of a long-lost people and their clockwork servants that still carry out their ancient orders.  Everywhere, there is new exploration, new invention, new growth, and new hope - but there are those who seek to steal the secrets of the world for their own ends, and in the deepest thickets lurks the Saffron Moss, the great all-consuming peril that once nearly subjugated the world to its will and does not intend to fail again.

And Snargash, you need to post a blurp. Rules are rules and this should be a convenient directory.

EDIT: Oh, and just noticed that didn't even put up the blurbs Kindling. That you should be able to do at least. :p

Phoenix- It would be nice if your list hyperlinked to the posts where people describe their setting- I think you can link to individual posts on the forum.

The list at the top currently shows which ones are updated, but the user has to point and click to find the settings down lower in this thread.

Er? What that supposed to be addressed to Cataclysmic Crow? We avians stick together, but I can't edit the first post in this thread if that's what you meant.

Gloria
Genre: Fantasy, Wonder (Weird Fantasy)
System: Gloria

Gloria is utopia. But even utopia needs maintenance. This idyllic capitalist land exists side-by-side with pirate libertarian kingdoms, and nefarious socialist lands to its north. The land is one of exploration, development, and invention. Shimmer, an oil-like substance, powers the world and gives rise to near-limitless possibilities.

Gloria's struggles are brighter than most worlds', but even utopia must guard its principles, lest the demons of the past escape and destroy the freedom that was so harshly bought. And, in prosperity, belief in faith and religion and morality suffers as people believe themselves greater than society.

Players plunge into this world of wonder, of development, of success, and attempt to make their own fortunes, while preserving the world's pristine hope and confronting the demons inside themselves and others.

Sorry Phoenix, I meant Crow- you are in charge of the Consultant project. I accidentally confused you fellows.

I might link them at some point, but really, just use ctrl-F. The setting names won't exactly be scattered across the entire page in great numbers. A couple of clicks should get you to the setting you desire smile

Surprise!  Bet you guys thought I was gone, didn't you?  I'm in the same boat as a couple other people.  Really NONE of my settings are DEAD per se (except maybe the hollow world) they've just been . . . hibernating.  As have I, apparently.  *stretches and yawns* New things may be on the horizon, so I'll get back to you when they arrive.

Panisadore is a fairly homogeneous world on the surface of things, with many layers of complex and interwoven history, variety and intrigue. Things aren't necessarily as they appear when that appearance can be shaped in many different ways by one's background and experiences. . . The world that I've imagined for this setting is very "political" on a number of levels, from the macro cosmic interplay of the deities to the microcosmic conniving of many of the guilds. Since story is largely character driven this may or may not be readily apparent in play, but offers a coherence to the larger story arcs and events that shape them. I've taken primarily a top-down approach, starting with the deities, races and general cultures to create a framework and leaving large portions of the map rather vague for now. Character concepts remain initially more fluid as there is more room to play with them, open spaces in which they can fit. The overall cultural milieu has a vaguely Asian feel to it - Taoist and Buddhist influences are, I think, easily recognized, especially around the equator. The major power in that region is the Malenorian Empire - a large nation of islands similar in many ways to (the worst aspects of) Feudal Japan coupled with the (again, worst) Imperialist ambitions and naval power of the height of the British Empire and displaying a cultural arrogance even greater than both combined. However, I'm not trying to recreate Asia - it's not an Oriental Adventures setting. Actually, I've wondered for a long time what would have happened had the Dharma spread westward rather than eastward. . . The Deities of Panisadore are *very* attentive and the interactions of the various Churches, Orders and Societies, both public and secretive, play a significant role in the world.

Crystalstar
Genre: Science Fantasy, Sword & Planet

Crystalstars are beautiful to behold, and terrible to contemplate. The crystals mined from deep within them can bring enlightenment, comfort, and peace to the masses, or it can just as easily incinerate them in a flash of unholy light. In this inconceivably ancient and yet strikingly modern world, crystalline technomagery is responsible for all of the great advances of civilization, and the rise of multitudes of city-states: hardy, insatiable Agahza; ancient, mysterious Varrdyen; and others. They all try to make their way in this changing and tumultuous world, watched over, assisted, and occasionally thwarted by inscrutable and ever-present gods.

Blurbs? Yes, blurbs.

Knife's Edge

An eternity of realities is the sea. The city is the ship.

Angel-ridden, spirit-winged, the arcanopolis of Knife's Edge flees from a Nameless evil between and across and through a myriad worlds and planes of existence.

A pestilent boil of metropolitan fantasy, watched over by deities of a life so grim that it can only be worshipped in terms of the sufferings of those who live it, and stalked by those who are driven mad by their quest for power through blood, Knife's Edge... survives... for now....

Reth Jaleract

Departure became arrival. Refuge became colony. The turmoil of Humanity's sudden and violent appearance in Reth Jaleract has sparked untold conflicts, made uncountable tensions flare into petty battles.

Slavery, rapine, warfare, brutalities of every vein have risen to the fore all across a continent suddenly made a frontier.
Heroes must rise, exceptional individuals hardened and honed in the forge of this chaos. But what influence will these champions have on Reth Jaleract? Will they strive for stability, or perpetuate the madness?
