We’re playing this campaign called Dragonmech.
The basic idea is pretty simple.
It’s your normal fantasy affair. Humans, elves, dwarves, all that shit.
One day, the moon just got shoved closer to the world. Nobody knows why but it really fucked things up on a major scale. The planet’s lunar orbit was absolutely messed up and the moon was physically being stripped to the planet in a rain of meteors and death. Not to mention there’s these assholes called Lunar Dragons who lived on the moon. When the meteors and lunar showers started nuking the surface world, they rode on them like surfboards and now are starting to wreck our planet for the fuck of it.
Everyone went underground. Dwarves were pissed off by this.To make matters worse, the Lunar Dragons had their own gods. When the moon came closer, their gods entered our pantheon and started murdering the shit out of the afterlife, so clerics and paladins suddenly don’t get spells once every few days because the gods are too busy not getting their shit murdered by lunar dragon gods.
Eventually we got pissed off by being underground and lunar dragons wrecking our shit, so one day a dwarf came up and said:
"Let’s build some fucking giant robots, bitches."
And nobody believed him.
Until he made one and the pilot destroyed a dragon with it.
So everyone’s in mechs now and there’s steampunk everywhere. If you don’t live underground you’re probably on a city-sized mech wandering the surface stomping on dragons and shit and surviving meteor showers. That’s basically it.
This sounds so fucking badass.
