Long ago, the world ended.
Once, there was a world of plenty. Now, there is nothing more than splinters of a land: islands drifting through the storms and the mists.
No one remembers how it happened.
Your people clung to the fragments of the land. You weathered the storms. You cultivated what scraps of life remained and salvaged what you could from the ruins of empires. It wasn't easy, but you survived.
So did others.
Slowly the remnants of society found each other. An Alliance formed, and the beginnings of safety were found.
You lead a group of survivors. You may be a hardened warrior commanding your army, a mad priest wielding the forces of nature, or even a filthy pirate out for all you can get. Whatever you are, you must now represent your people in this Alliance.
But can such disparate people work together? The selfish, the mad and the proud are already pointing blades at each other, and threaten to destroy everything you have achieved.
You face a future where there should be none. You have a chance to lead your people in building something incredible - a new society in a new world. A Broken World.
The Broken World Society Game has now concluded. Thank you to all our players for making it so utterly awesome!
