This World Ember is Our Solemn Hour
Here comes the world building for the Space Opera Setting and TTRPG
I am very excited to be working on building out the setting for the Our Solemn Hour event in my Barrens End Space Opera setting. This is the universe where Legends of the Jade Moon, Tales of the Silver Fox, and Fate’s Harrow takes place as well as the well remembered Phara-un which is not available at the moment, and a bunch of stories that will be launching soon.
What is Our Solemn Hour?
Our Solemn Hour is a galaxy wide event that will not only effect many of the stories happening in the Barrens End setting, but is the general backdrop for the table top role playing game.
What happened? Spoilers! You will have to stay tuned to find our as the initial information comes out on the World Anvil site which I will be sharing through this substack.
Needless to say, a series of unfortunate events have befallen the galaxy, including the rumors that the lost Hikara Tera have returned for reasons no one knows. Others believe their return is a lie. Dark gods stir throughout the galaxy, and the cold wars between the sects are heating up.
As the galaxy teeters on the brink of chaos, heroes must rise to fight back the crawling chaos.
Why am I being so vague?
Because I want you to come along for the journey. Your comments and response to the new elements of the setting, my plans may flow in different directions. Yes, you have a chance to change the future of the galaxy before the events are fully set into motion.
I have a plan, but there are a couple forks in the road where it could go in different directions. You might even inspire the setting to go in a directions I never imagined, so the more involved you are, the more the world will suit your desires.
What is the goal?
The goal is to write a minimum of 10,000 words of new world building that will set us up for all the new content for the next year. Hopefully, I will actually write more than that, but only time will tell.
The dragons are stirring. Old Gods awaken. Empires crumble. Who will rise to save the galaxy in the Hopepunk Space Opera event? Only time will tell. Let’s get started and get world building!
