A sketch for further development in the Forged Earth setting.
The fracture. That’s what the clerics call the earth-shattering events that gave rise to our world, our reality. It’s what we call our world. They say that earth before belonged to billions of celestials who ruled under a singular power. But despite their knowledge about one another, their arrogance and ignorance led to the fracture, a rupture in the stable fabric of the universe. In the blink of an eye their reality was swallowed whole, leaving only handfuls of disparate survivors forced to fend for themselves in this new reality. Dimensions collided, forever changing the face of the earth, and its inhabitants.
Were the celestials victims, or did they cause the fracture? The clerics will never agree. But the fracture forever shapes the nature of our world. The blue eye stares at us in our dreams, judging as we struggle to survive, and hindering our hope for change.
