Darsamn is a primitive land with only basic technology and weaponry.
The world encompasses all types of terrain and, in almost all, you will
find the spark of human life. They live in small settlements,
relying on each other to survive the harsh seasons. If a village is
destroyed, the refugees often struggle to find a new home.
There is no absolute ruler of Darsamn; the people believe that, should
they need one, their God will select a King for them. Each village has a
mayor but their authority is often limited. Skirmishes against other towns
are rare - people live, cursed with the fear of their God’s wrath - but they
do occur. Refugees will sometimes give up hope and become bandits.
The world is still cursed by the flaws of humanity and few people are left
content. There are still rich and there are still poor. Heartbreak and murder
still ravage the land. Although there once was magic, its wielders vanished
long ago. Some curse at their God, call blasphemy to his name, but there
is no doubt to the reality of his power or existence.
There is only Heaven in the afterlife, a place that every person is capable
of entering. Access is not always easy nor is it instant. If one is to die with
an impure heart, they are forced to purge their sins and gain purity first.
To do this, their God forces them to oversee the world’s misery, viewing
all the hardships of the land at once. They can spend millennia in this
state, waiting and watching, until they learn empathy and regret their
previous sins. To the people of the world, they are the stars, hanging in
the sky, observing both the night and day.
Once they finally repent their way, their God will allow them entry into
Heaven. The longer they are left waiting in the sky, however, the
lower their status in Heaven will be.
You are a star, a deceased soul repenting your sins and waiting
entry into heaven… or, at least, you were. Suddenly, you find yourself
plunging down to Earth without reason or explanation.
As you descend onto the world and taste its bitter soil, a figure calmly approaches
you. He makes promises to get you into Heaven. Your life – or afterlife - is
hanging in the balance, and he seems to be the only one with answers.
