Festenya: The Golden Era
by ThisisSakon

Showcase Thread

You might not think of the lowlives and high living of the Roaring Twenties as an appropriate mechanical basis for a Magic expansion, but the world of Festenya would disagree. Festenya: The Golden Era oozes luxury and opulence from every pore, from chattering markets to sordid speakeasies, and a thick vein of intrigue runs just beneath the surface.


Anorost
by Xenagos

Showcase Thread

Heavily inspired by the gothic whimsy of Don't Starve and the nautical steampunk horror of Sunless Sea, the world of Anorost is a dark, sticky place full of terrors enough to snap even the strongest of minds in half. Anorost offers a compelling new take on suspense and the supernatural, oppressive and anxious at every turn.


Evolution of the Lahessi
by Korakhos

Showcase Thread

Medranos is a world in constant upwelling, and all the more impressive for being just a single chapter in Korakhos' long-running MSE saga. His character-driven stories add a lot to the set, but it also stands very well on its own, showcasing an unstable plane of explosive growth and strange, savage wildlife.


Plagues of Fretport
by HerziQuerzi

Set File

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, HerziQuerzi's ability to create breathing worlds and coherent storylines without long tracts of prose is commendable. The fear and desperation of Fretport's citizens and the underhand schemes of its nobility conspire to tell very human stories, supported further by strong mechanical storytelling.
