What is Nobis?
Imagine a world that has begun to cast off the yoke of monarchy, a world where the old ways are slipping into memory and a new era of enlightenment is dawning. Knowledge spreads like wildfire, commerce and democracy take root. Thousands upon thousands gravitate to massive City-States, towering metropolises that cast long shadows across the face of the world. Once jealously guarded arcane secrets are now available in every bookshop on every corner and the very fabric of the universe succumbs to the inevitable march of progress. Imagine the world of Nobis.

Nobis stands at a crossroads. Small pockets of civilization have suddenly advanced by leaps and bounds, casting off the feudal caste system and embracing democratic rule, but not all the world is so quick to change.

The rising City-States are expanding rapidly, moving into uncharted territory with often violent and sometimes unexpected results. New urban megaliths spring up at the edges of the old kingdoms. What were once sparsely populated nomadic lands are now home to thousands. Tribes and petty fiefdoms have merged together in the crucible of urban development. At times they have been drawn reluctantly together by the promise of profit and safety; at others they have been corralled at the point of a sword.

Some say the advances of civilization dwarf the insignificant desires of the conquered, that the new world offers wealth and security unprecedented in history. Some say the world is more dangerous than ever and that ˘the thinkers÷ meddle with powers far older and stranger than they can possibly comprehend.

What is undoubtedly true is that death and wonderment lurk around every corner. While the City-States offer all the modern conveniences and access to knowledge on an unprecedented scale, crime is rampant and organized guilds vie for control ... some entertain even higher aspirations.

The City-States promise riches and power to anyone who can claim them, but they are cruel and unforgiving. A manĂs rise to power can be long and arduous, and his fall can be as quick as the flash of a knife. Men and women of this new class continually strive to consolidate their power, both political and economic, for in the City-States the two are fast becoming one and the same. Anyone with a quick mind, a quicker tongue and enough gold can rise among elite. Anyone with a quick blade, strong arm or arcane power can help them keep it ... or take it all.
