The Big Wheel
The galaxy feels a lot smaller these days.
Once separated by vast stretches of space, the Wheel is connected with the invention of shimmershere, an enchanted cloth that made interstellar travel a reality. Seabound vessels, fitted with magic sails, lift out of their homeworlds’ seas and off for fortune and adventure.
In the dense core, great prosperity is everywhere, fostered by the galactic economic ambitions of the dwarves of Europa. On the mid-rim, orc trade companies go to war for lucrative contracts, and strong, stubborn folk continue to colonize outward. In the Wheel’s distant arms, long-abandoned ruins beckon foolhardy scholars with the secrets of the civilizations that came before.
