What’s so unique about Redsky?
Redsky is a new kind of science-fantasy universe. Imagine a magicless, classical-era world. It’s full of political intrigue, war between humans and nonhumans, and rampaging monsters.

Almost everyone will die. That’s Redsky.

Six Sentient Species Fighting to Survive
In the centuries before the end, Humanity’s solar legions march on the world, unconquered, unbroken. They clash with the bold cavalry lords of the Nightriders, thundering across the steppe.
Deep underground, the Sporespawn invent new technologies to stem the tide of the merciless brass automata. Hundreds of miles away, Featherfolk travel across seas, sands, and jungles on their quests for coin and adventure. Some make their way to the perilous Red Desert, where they loot rare and powerful Eldertech with flocks of nightmarish beasts hot on their tails.
Hearty Wakewalkers detonate explosives inside the hearts of eldritch abominations to feed their hungry clans. Meanwhile, stoic Archivists meditate on the mystery of time from their mountain peaks. As the sky begins to turn blood red, they slowly realize that it’s running out.
Tales like these are what Redsky is all about. What stories will you tell in the World Ship?
Nightriders thunder across the steppes of the Moon Realm in honor bound tribes atop their mighty steeds. One tribe almost conquered humanity. Others train elite corps of warriors. Some hunt on the dark side of the world, or stare down death itself in the frigid sub-zero wilds.
