The Reawakening

Discord Here:




Rifts are mysterious, ancient anomalies who are older than time itself, born before even the universe was. They are gate ways that pierce reality itself, linking dimensions together and sometimes, trapping people in other worlds. The world we live in now is one born from an uncountable number of Rifts, where people and land from alternative timelines, aliens planets and fantastic worlds have been combined to form one. New societies, pieced from those who arrived here on the Riftworld, have risen and fallen and risen again.

For a millennium, the Rifts were closed with only rumors of Rifts existing in only the most remote wildlands. Those who have accepted the Riftworld as their new home have built new lives here, starting families and establishing communities that would go on to form nations. It is a universal truth that all live desires company, and such desires on the Riftworld have given birth to a myriad of strange nations, formed from seemingly disparate parts and blended to create something new.

But something stirs. Rumors speak of the Rifts reopening from the coldest mountain peaks to the hottest desert planes , the foggiest wetland swamp to the untamed wilderness. These Rifts, long though sealed, have reopened their reality rending maws to let loose chaos anew. And now, the Riftworld will experience an Awakening of the Rifts.




Welcome to the Riftworld! This is an NRP set in the interdimensional dumping grounds of the multiverse, courtesy of the aforementioned Rifts. It is a world where all kinds of peoples, races and creatures have had to make their homes ever since they were first brought here in the first Opening of the Rift a millennia ago. It is a world were magic and technology co-exist and mingle, where the fantastic becomes the mundane and civilizations rise and fall.

The main narrative is what do these established nations do when the Rifts that brought them to this world have reopened to spew forth more peoples, creatures, and items into the world? They were thought shut and now the fact they have reopened brings up the question of what might come out of them.

Kingdom of Norshao
The Wintermen Clans


At the very edge of the world, where the cold freezes blood and nightmares roam wild, are the towering Pillar Cities of Norshao. They live in a harsh land that would break lesser peoples for in Norshao, the Rifts never fully closed. Fresh horrors and beasts regularly slip into the icy mountains and for a thousand years, everything from mythical beasts to mechanic constructs and from apex predators to eldritch horrors.

And for each one of those thousand years, Norshao hunted them all like prey.


Government


Society




Norshao's military, just like the realm, is highly decentralized. It is the responsibility of each Clan Master to raise, train and equip their own Banners of warriors and their own Thaneguard retinue. Each banner is typically around a thousand men, broken down by tens until you get a ten man squad. The quality and type of Bannermen can vary from professional soliders to levied guards to hired mercenaries but it is the duty for each warlord to keep soldiers around at all times to defend his lands. It is illegal to have inadequate defenders but the punishment is rarely enforced by the Throne; the land will enforce that rule on its own. Thaneguards however are best seen as sworn knights committed to the protection of their warlords.

Obviously a heavy WIP, but I should be completing the bulk of it over the next few days.
