Age of Shambles is an experiment. I want to generate a new campaign setting for the "5th edition of the world's most popular RPG". But I wanted to develop it in public and share my creation.

So that's just what I'm doing.

While my group and I are currently using the playtest rules for a specific RPG, and we plan on upgrading to the final rules as soon as those are released, I think most, if not all, of the material I present here will be edition or game system agnostic. 

If you are gaming in a system that allows magic, has humans, dwarves, elves, orcs, the occasional flintlock rifle, dragons, and golems, then your system will work just fine for what I have envisioned here.

If you are one of the few people who plays at my table, you get access to the worldbook as I make it. I'll label some things as GM Secrets. While I, obviously, can't stop you from perusing those as well, I do ask you to avoid it as best you can.

If you don't know what most of that means, that's fine, too. You can choose to come here for the intermittent fiction I'll write to flesh out my ideas of the world. Or to just read about a fantastical realm unlike our own.

Or, um, to just make fun of me, I guess.
