Welcome to the Geolithic Era
In the midst of a solarpunk world, where low sci-fi and grimdark elements collide, mankind has entered a new era - the Geolithic. Thousands of years after the devastating effects of climate change and nuclear war, humanity has struggled to recover and rebuild.
The Ruins of the Past
On the desert planet of Terra, the remnants of a consumerist society can still be found in the form of ruins, junk yards, and other relics. While much of the past has been lost to time, those who understand the power of technology have begun to use the resources of the old world to pave the way for a greener future.
The Mystery of the Before Times
It has been almost 4000 years since humanity was reduced to a fraction of its former population. Global communication was lost, and very little is known about the world before this cataclysmic event. The average person knows next to nothing about the past, and even scholars and specialized individuals only have a limited understanding of the before times.
The Geolithic Revolution
Over the past several hundred years, the Geolithic revolution has been growing, allowing small villages to turn into cities. The ability to harness the resources left behind by the previous era is akin to magic, with those who understand the power of technology being revered as shamans and alchemists. However, only a few individuals have the knowledge and expertise to use these ancient powers.
The Bleak Land of Terra
Due to desertification and rising sea levels, Terra is a bleak place, consisting of small to medium size islands separated by deep, stormy seas. As you venture forth in this harsh world, be prepared for the challenges that await you and embrace the mysteries of the past as you forge your path into the future.
The People of Terra
In this strange and mysterious world, you will encounter a variety of different cultures and civilizations. From the agrarian communities that have embraced the Geolithic revolution, to the primal savage tribes that cling to the old ways, each group has its own unique way of life.
One of the most prominent civilizations on Terra are the gourdfolk. Known for their expertise in xeriscaping, these green-skinned individuals have created green spaces throughout the desert planet. They are a peaceful and resourceful people, with a deep connection to the natural world.
Another prominent civilization on Terra are the wampusfolk. These cat-like humanoids have adapted to the harsh desert environment by using colorful textiles to create sun shades that provide protection from the sand and sun. They are a technologically advanced people, with a rich cultural history and a deep connection to the past.
The Lizard Drinkers
A more primal and savage civilization on Terra are the lizard drinkers. These mutated humans, descended from those who retreated underground to avoid the
great cataclysm, are known for their bright red skin and their reliance on echolocation to detect prey. They are hostile to all non-lizard drinkers and operate in packs or pods of up to 200, much like a hornets nest.
The Wonders of Terra
In addition to the diverse cultures and civilizations that populate Terra, the desert planet is also home to a variety of wonders and mysteries. From the ancient ruins that dot the landscape, to the mysterious powers of the old technology, there is always something new to discover and explore in this strange and wonderful world.
The Perils of Terra
However, as you journey through Terra, be prepared for the dangers and challenges that await you. From the fierce sandstorms that can sweep through the desert, to the treacherous seas and the primal savage tribes that roam the land, there are many dangers to be faced on this unforgiving planet.
The sandstorms of Terra are a force to be reckoned with. With winds reaching up to 150 mph, these storms can cause serious damage to structures and can even be deadly to those caught in the open. It is important to always be prepared for a sandstorm, and to seek shelter if one is approaching.
The seas of Terra are treacherous, with deep, stormy waters and powerful currents. Many ships have been lost to the waves, and it is not uncommon for travelers to be stranded on one of the many small islands scattered throughout the planet. It is important to always be prepared for the dangers of the sea and to have a plan in case of emergencies.
The Savage Tribes
The savage tribes that roam the lands of Terra are a constant threat. These primal humans, descended from those who refused to embrace the Geolithic revolution, are hostile to all outsiders and will attack without provocation. It is important to always be on guard when traveling through their territory, and to avoid confrontation if possible.
