Welcome to the Fading Suns MUSH, where the Known Worlds have come alive.

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 belief in 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 invading barbarians. The Known Worlders managed to hold those enemies at bay.

Now an 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 what humanity 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.
