Welcome to White Wolf: Dark Ages

This is a white wolf based mod, it is not white wolf to a T as far as history or story line. There are some elements of white wolf history and story line with in the game. Shall we give you a basic run down?

White Wolf- Dark Age

A Neverwinter Nights Server

History as is unknown by the common folk or anyone else in character:

In the year 2011 the moon circling the earth was hit by a massive comet; this may have been the only thing which saved the planet from total destruction. Upon hitting the moon, several pieces of the moon itself, as well as the comet broke off and showered down upon the earth in various places. The collisions of these pieces and fragments caused a new ice age from which the planet is still recovering from. Prior to the comets collision, the council of the gates began thier preparations and began sending people, places, and things into the future. . . but thier rush caused for some unforseen side effects, as they did not calculate all of the factors correctly. Whole cities were thrust through time. . .races, cultures, people. . .all were taken and tossed randomly about. Those which did survive the trip through time arrived in a world much different from where they had originated. . .and thier memories were scrabled due to the carless magics.
Not all were taken from the same time however. . .as some from the past came forward, and some from the future came back. . .the world which recovered from the ice age was now populated with a vast and colorful selection of life. . .and death.
The night was ruled by the dead. . .those which were consumed by the grave had risen up by some unknown force over the last centuries and now ruled the nights with ferocious and insatiable hunger.
The day was ruled by wild beasts and creatures which had evolved over the past few centuries with out the influence of men and women to hinder thier progression, others, had been adversly created originally by man.
The ice age ended aproximatly 4,000 years after the collision. . .though some areas had been warming since 2,000 years after. The world shape has changed from what was known in the twentieth century, shifting land masses, earth quakes, glaciers, and volcanic eruptions have shaped it into a new horizen of opportunity and exploration. But, it is also dangerous and untamed. . .the race of man began appearing 300 years prior to now. . .and every so often. . .something new arrives from the chaotic forces which now seem to bombard this world.
After the rituals done in 2011 by the mages, and the collision of the comet, naught has been heard or seen from the mages of old. . .man has grown supersticious as he did before, burning of witches have become common place, stonings, hangings. . .anything which cannot be explained is either feared. . .or destroyed.


History that may be known by common humans who have inhabited the world for the past 300 years:

The world began in a bright flash of light, the gods had moved man to this place as a punishment for thier crimes and forced them to prove thier worthiness in the unbearable conditions of a new world. They call this world Σαντορίνη (Santorini), from the city where the first settlement appeared. Though they had no recolection of who they were, they could still read the writings on the collums and pillars. Most of mans society has branched out from there, though there have been other cities which have mysteriously been found. . .and possibly more which still may be found. The great majority of the world is still unknown.
Still, the night is a time when people hide in thier homes,shutter thier windows, and lock thier doors. For they believe that the night is ruled by the darkness. There is some truth in thier supersticions, as the dead roam the world at night, vanishing from sight just before the light rises above the horizen. Fire is considered ones best friend.
Rumors of witches and hags inhabiting swamps have spread, supersticions of old have re-emerged in the world. Commoners believe that the pale ones who feast on human blood walk the nights, and that the day is ruled by those cursed by the wolf.
Two moons orbit the world now, one white, one black. Some pray to the moons. Some pray to the sun. Others pray to idols and statues left in the old cities. . .and others pray to the abominations which roam the lands.
Some of the history believed by men and women is passed down by thier elders, and thus there are many conflicting stories as to what has actually transpired over the last few centuries of mans return. But one thing is certain, there are things in the world which must be avoided. . .and left to the past.

Several races have also appeared through the evolution of what once might have been considered human. . .so be weary of oddities and unusual tidings. And always remember the supersticion of the towns people.



History as you might know or think you know:

The world has suffered through a massive cataclysm, a meteor sped through the reaches of space and collided with the moon, sending several large chunks of astral debris into the planet. There are now two moons circling the world. The night seems to be ruled by the dead, and the day is ruled by the strong. The weak shall perish and natural selection has taken a twisted turn in keeping things alive.

During the time of the collision the year was 2013, many centuries have passed sense then, giving way to new creatures, races, and mutations which now roam the lands. Some good, some evil.

It is rumored that with the meteor came a darkness, but these are usually superstitions which have been passed down as wives tales to frighten children and parents. The technology which was is no longer, knowledge that was one as common as the sun rising in the morning and setting at night has been lost most of it to never be found again. Man has been forced into an older age of existence, and now makes his keep by the sweat of his brow and the breaking of his back. Many have been driven mad by the things in the night, and others still are highly superstitious. It is not uncommon to see a town lynching or burning because someone is thought to be a demon or witch.

Depending upon your selection of race on entry will dictate how you live, or die. Life is hard, and there is still a great darkness which looms over the lands of the earth. It will also shape how your character will view and know of the past.


The Soul-Seekers:
Star dust- considered the gathers of souls, these fouls people live amongst us, with us, and around us. They first made an appearance immediatly after the collision of the asteroid. They have kept thier existance vastly hidden from society, and the knowlege of thier existance is nearly null and void. Though, if one searches enough, one may learn of them and thier origins, but be weary, for there are many false leads about.
For those who play soul seekers, you know that you serve one higher power. Forever striving to . . .convert the masses. Once in game, your faction rep will tell you more about your tasks and goals. You task, is to remain hidden and carry out the will of the supreme being. . .

Vampires:
You have appeared in this time. . .your memories fuzzy and your resources gone. Why and how you actually got here is a bit of a mystery to you, and you feel as if some one hit you with a mack truck. Still, as you become less foggy and more aware of your surroundings you will notice that it is no longer the 20th century. . .in fact. . .you notice that either you have drifted into the dark ages, or man has completly decayed into his previous savagry. You must now piece together what is going on, why there are two moons, and how you ended up here. The last thing you recall is a bright flash of light. . .and then. . .appearing here.

Garou:
There is little to no difference from the vampires to garou as far as how you arrived here.
You have appeared in this time. . .your memories fuzzy and your resources gone. Why and how you actually got here is a bit of a mystery to you, and you feel as if some one hit you with a mack truck. Still, as you become less foggy and more aware of your surroundings you will notice that it is no longer the 20th century. . .in fact. . .you notice that either you have drifted into the dark ages, or man has completly decayed into his previous savagry. You must now piece together what is going on, why there are two moons, and how you ended up here. The last thing you recall is a bright flash of light. . .and then. . .appearing here.

Immortals:
You strive to live amongst the normal societies of this world, having traced an ancient enemy across the stars. You goals are two fold, to remain hidden, and to destroy soul seekers at any cost. You are bounty hunters from across the stars and planes, but do not be fooled, for there are others like you, and the goal is ultimate power. Should you loose your head youw ill loose all that you are to another. . .there can be only one.

Other various races to come:
Other races are in the makes, goblinoid, ogres, and much, much more, these are various humanoid forms which have been mutated over time since the cataclysm and now have become a more primative and or savage form. Look forward to many new updates.
