Ninety three elves remain. They are lead by 7 leShay. The (3.5) eladrin outsiders have coalesced around them as a court obsessed with intruigue. None of the living elves are below level 12. Most are spellcasters, and most have open and active contracts (via lesser planar ally) with eladrin.

Humanity extinct or ascended into noncorporeal energy beings and essentially gone. All ruins long destroyed or buried. Basically, it's like they ended up on a brand new empty world with a similar world map.

That applies to every game I've ever run or played in, from D&D to Shadowrun to modern to historical to sci fi. Including 40k.

I think you're confused about how long a million years is. Even in 40k terms, it's 25x longer than all of recorded human history. Even the ruins are long gone.

>> No.44484900


Makes me wonder how you'd leave something that would last for millions of years. Even just a monument saying that you existed once.

>What is the world like

Nothing. Reality is destroyed because a quantum event with tachyons sent us 1 million years into the future, thereby preventing us from stopping the cult currently dedicated to obliterating everything permanently.

Though perhaps the reintroduction of Something (us) to Nothing will cause some kind of catastrophic event akin to a Big Bang, thereby recreating the universe. So I guess we either recreate reality by exploding or we become the new reality's divine creators, or maybe both. That or our corpses float through the void forever.

The glittering hordes of twilight vampires and the X-Com hordes of terminators have burned the world and fight over the ashes.

But unbeknownst to either side in that war to mark the end of days was the Omega Vault.

Last refuge of the dreams and hops and the ark of sorrows for mankind. All that was needed to make the world anew. The Garden of Eden Creation Kit.

King Arthur of Avalon bid you reach that nightmare place, through time his wizard of winter's court sent you past the hour of your appointed deaths, find the GECK.

Your quest; find the GECK. Undo the end of days.

Are you bad enough nephilim to not go quite into that dark night?

The earth is a fixed point in space time. As far as we're aware, it doesn't arbitrarily flicker between existing and not existing. Yes, the earth and solar system move through larger areas of space-time, but there's no reason to think that time travel would work like /tg/'s fantasy of Immovable rods

Time travel is not space travel. In a million years, the galaxy will be nowhere near where it is today, so just going forward in time would deposit people in the middle of intergalactic space.

Current game I'm in is in Forgotten Realms, so nothing changes. Medieval levels of technology and society are still a thing.

In my current setting?
Without the Chosen Ones to slay the World Serpent in the Great Cycle, the World Serpent devours enough life to begin slaying and consuming minor spirits and divine entities. In desperation,seeing what's to come the Greater Gods decide to scour the planet of all life, reducing the planet to bitter ashes, removing all heat, all life, all warmth, all souls from the world, and they sunder magic itself to stop the World Serpent from deifying itself by eating everything.

The World becomes a barren, lifeless husk, with ancient, glorious citadels and mighty architecture that crowned entire mountain ranges and made them unto glimmering symbols of vast power and glory.And all around these holdfasts, lies coiled, titanic,Serpent, a vast, monstrous, endless creature that encircles the world many times over, marking the world as his, forever alone in his world.

The players arrive to a dead, cold planet, long abandoned by the Gods.

World is ruled by petty asshole gods who play millenia long games of intrigue with each other, while throwing the mortal races, now soulbound pawns, into meaningless meatgrinder wars against the other gods.

The world that the campaign was taking place on is long gone. After all, it was made out of god matter, and the first thing they did was reclaim it. However, since they are not just glorious but also benevolent, they deign to allow small landmasses to exist, floating in a sea of soulstuff, so that their pawns have some place to prepare for the next war.

It's probably a generic sci fi earth with slightly more magic and interdimentional magic aliens now that we got over the whole "magical apocalypse thing". Or maybe a large magical alien destroyed all life on earth. 1 million years is a long fuckin' time.

The entire Earth gets subjugated under the magic/science boot heel of an uncaring near omnipotent tyrant god AI who works all the peoples to death for no other purpose other than to draw out human extinction as long as it possibly can.

Luckily we just located the nearest Timegate and tell whoever the current guardian is that there has been a massive misunderstanding and we need to go back home.
