Welcome to the Fading Suns MUSH, where the Known Worlds have come
It is the dawn of the sixth millennium and humanity's
greatest civilization has fallen, leaving a new Dark Age to descend upon
the Known Worlds. Peasants huddle in ignorance and fear among the ruins
of past grandeur, waiting for the suns themselves to fade to cinders while
haughty nobles, scheming guilders, and righteous clergy squabble over the
technological remnants of the lost Second Republic. Will the new
Emperor, Alexius, halt this descent into darkness and restore humankind's
renewal and progress, or will the Light fade at last from the universe?
A decade ago, Alexius' scouts rediscovered Vargo, a planet that had been
isolated from the rest of humanity for a thousand years. The factions
of the Empire descended upon Vargo to claim it for their own. The
Emperor brought Vargo under his protection, establishing a Triumvirate
to govern the world
fairly for all of its inhabitants. Almost immediately, the Triumvirate
found itself under siege by hostile forces determined to bring about
its destruction: native insurrections, malevolent antinomists, and
barbarians. The Known Worlders managed to hold those enemies
even greater threat hangs over their heads. Claiming that human greed
and perfidy had upset the natural balance of the universe on Vargo,
an inscrutable, alien race known as the Vau have issued a grim ultimatum:
unless the Known
Worlders find a way to restore that balance within five years, they
will erradicate all human life from the face of Vargo. No one knows
did to bring down the wrath of the Vau, let alone how to fix the problem.
Yet everyone agrees on one thing: they have no choice but to solve
this enigma, or die trying.
Time is running out...
Come inside and weave your story into the ever-growing tapestry
that is Vargo.
