The Beneath-- a sprawling catacomb, a network of strange and otherworldly passageways through the very earth beneath your feet. It is a place of quiet where there is no law but that of the small communites searching for survival, each for itself in the dank, cold remnants; and of course the self-governing of the wanderers, traders, and vagabonds, those brave or unfortunate enough to travel the passageways alone.
But the Beneath is perhaps more importantly home to the last magic-- the magic of the Deep, old and dangerous in its trickery. For it is rumored that far beneath even the Beneath, a power beyond mortal comprehension lies in wait.
Yet that is a tale for another place and another time. Beneath the World is a literate+ subterranean dark fantasy role play group, focusing on the inhabitants of the Beneath, the few communities that they make up, and the rise of a new era-- whatever that may mean. We aim to be a tight-knit community of role players and friends; we try to be above all else welcoming of all types and all sorts of creativity, so don't be afraid to say hello.
Recently, a mysterious announcement has shown up in Erilyn concerning the Caves; see here for details.
Just recently we've cleared out our first member sweep, reluctant though we were to delete those members who had been with us for some time. Those of you who were deleted may return without a moment's notice, and without an application, if you feel you can better maintain activity. You're welcome here.
