Welcome to Empyria!
Empyria is a modern(ish) post-apocalyptic fantasy worldbuilding/story project inspired by JRPGs, especially Namco's Tales series.
A thousand years ago, an apocalyptic event known as the Cataclysm covered the entire planet of Empyria in a thick layer of volatile magic energy. Humans eked out a harrowing existence within the magical radiation until they found ways to harness it, both with their bodies and with machines. Now, the countries of Wywick and Orlis are entering a new age of digital technology, unaware that they are repeating the mistakes of the past.
This site mostly covers the lore side of things. For more details about the characters and plot of Legends of Empyria, the fictional video game that takes place in this setting, check my socials linked in the footer.
