1. Proof of Night
Ever since the spread of humanity into space, life has become something strange and precious - every world to which humanity spread lacked its own form of life, in the sense of the primary definition. Now, a mysterious form of life, called "Dusker," has been found, and the fleets have become split. Dusker can enhance natural ability and give the user almost unstoppable powers, and humanity has discovered a new resource to war over. The fleet known as Delphi has been formed by a new kind of humanity - Oracles, those who live in symbiosis with the Dusker - and their mysterious founders have asked that the Oracles begin preparing for something even more terrible than civil war.
2. Shell Zero
According to legend, the world was once whole, but the ancients broke it somehow. Massive plates float at varying depths, each level called a Strata. The world is powered by orendite, a mysterious mineral exposed at the breaking points of the Strata and the continents, called Shells. Empires wage war over orendite deposits, and now, the Republic of Galvar has developed a weapon that cracks Shells wide open, revealing their orendite to their mining ships. They have begun to expand, destroying everything in their path, and now, they come for the Shell you live on.
3. From a Black Soil
Magic has destroyed the world, evil has won, and the screaming wind carries the scent of long-dead empires. Most people dig for scraps in the wastelands left behind from the last great magical disaster - metal is rare, water is precious, and city-states are ruled by nearly invincible magicians soaking up all the ambient magic they can get. You are the "People of Black Soil," those who are capable of using magical power without permission granted by the Sorcerer Kings - black soil is the most fertile of all, and thus, your minds and bodies are potentially a mystical resource for those who care. The problem is, can you make yourselves too valuable or too powerful to kill before too many people find out?
Somewhere, there are green fields and beautiful kingdoms. Somewhere, nobles play games of power while the warnings of those who fight the evil that exists on the far side of the wall fall on deaf ears. You live in the shadow of the great wall protecting the world from evil, but you do not live on the right side. Orcs, hobgoblins, ogres, and undead prowl the wilderness, and towns scrape by on whatever they can raid from one another - growing food is nearly impossible, the shadows at night are alive, and day is a brief respite from the shadows of conquest.
5. A Hole Outside Miami
Outside of Miami, there is a hole in the world. It's a small space, a black tunnel about two feet in diameter. Rumor says that it is the start of something much larger - the appearance of some series of occult confluences that will allow whoever controls the hole command of the entire universe for a brief moment - mere milliseconds - but enough time to take control of all of reality with enough time to alter one fundamental principle, or even make a small edit to an event. Occultists, Vampires, Werewolves, Demons, and other creatures from all over the world have moved in, waiting for their opportunity to try and take control of the pit.
