The world as we know it, known more commonly by its colloquial shorthand Ava. Still reconciling the old world.

To start an adventure through article-story, via the wiki-world model, follow any links of interest until their terminus, then return here to follow another link until the stories and information begin to blend into a world all its own, very much resilient and alive.


The infamous Kava region of the tectonics. Infamous for being dusty, awful, and profitable.

Wastelanders of Fame & InfamyEdit


The late Buckshot Beardsman was the father of current Beardsman household head, Bleardio Beardsman. In the Beardsman family, you're only as good a man as your beard is long. You can then tell, of men, Buckshot must have been a pretty good one.






TECTONICS - Populated areas across the Avantsphere's fractured surface. Many are separated by large ravines.

When the Old World broke and shattered, many mysteries of what came before fell into the cracks or got flung into space. Find out more about the current layout of the Avantsphere and its plated structure by clicking here.


Strains and forms of mortal across the waste:

  • Dudes, common mortal being, thought to be the origin. Squishy but clever.
  • Skeniks, a quickly evolving mix-pool of beast and dude, bred with harshness of the land (they also "love" animals).
  • Shikes, these awful, lazy, land-stealing curses to common decency are still alive, and hated by all credited scribes.
  • Twibbers, considered a mutated "sub-race" they claim to be reincarnated lives from the Old World.

Brigand CompaniesEdit

Brigands are larger clans, bigger than kennels, that number over 100 active members.


The Jetsetters are famed, unsurprisingly, for stumbling upon and reworking Old World jetterpacks.

Notable kennels of bandits and highwaymen assembled into large factions or small raiding bands. As deadly as they are crazy, and they are very crazy.

Crashed hull stands like a gravestone and reminder of when the skies lit a'fire in The Last Great Air War.

Things which what happened.

There is yet to be a reliable method of chronology universally developed and accepted enough to record history. But these things definitely happened. Maybe.
