OH, just occured to me you might want to catch a glimpse of the sim's backstory ... here it is ...

THE LAND OF TAIRAIS...

War, it consumes us all.  Like a living breathing thing it swoops down upon us and devours everything that does not conform to its will.  It was a dark time of war on Earth.  New technologies meant to "end all wars" were unleashed upon the helpless residents of every city, tearing civilization apart and bringing humans to their knees in desolation, disease and despair.

Many races, from many other planets long suspected to have visited this now burning little utopia, watch from above with varying degrees of disgust, malice, sadness and prejudice.  Until one unknown being raises his staff out before him, his cheeks moist with silent tears at the sight of what this foolish young race has done to their gift ... their world.

With silent fury, he turns away from the vid window showing him this terrible sight, and moves to his control console.  Finger outstretched, he pauses, hovering just over the button that will change everything for this mindless little planet ... forever.  He turns to his First Officer as if considering his actions one last time.  With a nod, his companion reinforces this being's will and that hovering finger eases into the button, depressing it and unleashing the future.

The ship begins to hum and lights begin to spark and glow around the ships forward weapons array.   The charge builds, slowly ebbing and flowing ... swirling and pulsing, growing into a blinding light that finally bursts forth with powerful stream of energy.  With crackling power, the beam moves toward the planet below and penetrates its surface, burrowing deep to her core.

It continues for what seems forever until a deafening crack can be heard.  Earth's remaining inhabitants startle and scurry about like rats looking for a place to hide.  The ground shakes with the weapon's power, and the light grows in its intensity, spreading out from the beam in a growing radius until it consumes the entire surface.

The very air around them humms with the power until what can only be described as "rips" or "tears" form, light glowing from within each jagged split.  Humans stand there, staring in awe and terror, not understanding, not knowing what to do.  All around the planet, in various locations, these glowing rips in the air appear, some of them remain silent beyond their glowing electrical charge.  But others ... as onlookers watch, to their horror, shadows begin to move and grow larger, and the impossible happens ... creatures long thought to be extinct or mythical ... step through these splits ... weapons, magic and claws ready to defend or conquer.

It is the beginning of a new world, a new way of thinking and a new way of living. In his fury, the being from space turned Earth into a hub hovering at the center of space, time and dimension.  In his desire to punish the people and heal the land, he shows these humans, by dangerous example, how petty and irrelevant their squabbles are, and how small and inferior they are as compared to many other races they might encounter.

..........

When the smoke settled and the shock lessened, humans and supernaturals alike begin to look around this new and changed world. They must find a way to live in this new Earth, adapt to the technology that is available now. Steam  and Tesla coils power most things. For many of the supernatural races, this would be seen as magic itself, and for the more advanced peoples, it would be seen as near barbarian in it's simplicity. Many weapons simply cease to exist with the lack of ability to repair or find ammunition.
