Welcome to Luridia
The world of Luridia is one step away from total catastrophe. The magic-industrial complex has spawned a web of invention, speculation, and conflict that threatens to spin out of control. Feuding city-states vie for dominance with only a careless glance at the costs of their schemes.
Working class wizards churn out voidal humour, the raw stuff of magic, by the ton in massive factories. Mad elves use voidal humour to fuel their innovations, often bizarre arms and armors. Draconic warlords employ these weapons in their endless campaigns against one another, soaking battlefields in blood to claim the mantle of an empire long since destroyed. Cat-faced moneylenders broker and bully their way across the marketplace, wringing a profit from trade, war, even death. All the while, thieves prowl the streets, cutting purses and throats as it suits them.
Into this world, one man has plotted a course to power that would topple every pillar keeping civilization from collapsing into another dark age. In a different time, in a different place, men and women of great moral character would rise to stop him. Luridia has no place for such men and women. It needs Unlikely Heroes, whose obsession, rage, elitism, greed and deception will carry the day against the colossal forces that intend to snuff them out.
And to the victor go the Spoils.
The Spoils is an absurdist fantasy; a rollicking journey through a lunatic world only slightly less depraved than our own.
