Portal of the Gods



  • Hey everyone!

    Long time lurker, first time poster type deal here. Primarily doing an interest check but also looking for a couple extra hands who might be interested in helping me put this game together!

    Once the game info is further along on the wiki I will update with actual website/MU connector information. We will be utilizing the AresMUSH platform!


    Portal of the Gods!

    Welcome to the world of Orion. A place where magic and steam technology have found a way to grow together. A recent cataclysmic event has shaken the world to its core and has stretched across universes to pull people from different realities to Orion as well as displace native Orion inhabitants. Are you one of these people ripped from your home world and tossed into a strange land? How will you get home? Are you a native trying to deal with the loss and complications that these newcomers bring? How will you survive and thrive?


    There are going to be 5 worlds - including Orion - that characters can be from. I am redoing concepts for 3 of the 5 because I want to really capture the feel of being thrust into a world you know nothing about and that is nowhere close to home.

    Orion and Earth Preview

    Orion - where the game will take place - can be summed up as Steampunk meets D&D Forgotten Realms. There will be magic, steam tech, magitech, and gods that still exist though with their influence weakening Portals have begun to pop up all over that lead in to their realms - ready to be pillaged IF you think you can survive.

    Earth - Of course earthlings would get all wrapped up in some kind of cosmic shenanigans! At the time of the cataclysm Earth was in its year 2100 and was heading towards a very Shadowrun-esque vibe (minus the magic). There was a rise in bioware (which is any kind of cybernetic limb, implant, etc being put on/in a person’s being) along with Cyborgs and AI-implanted robots with synthetic human-looking features. So human, ‘borgs, and AI beings transported to Orion will be rather out of their element.


    If you are interested in helping bring this game to life feel free to message me!

    I am looking for a couple people to assist with lore and world building as well as an extra hand on the back end.



  • I'm extremely interested. My RL work does limit my MUing ability so I can't sign up for any heavy lifting, but I'd love to help out with building and lore. I can provide references if you like at that.

    @Kay is amazing. Consider me a gushing character reference.

    I'm also interested, but I don't really have the time/brainmeats to staff.



  • Thank you both for your interest! I will definitely get in touch with you Kay! I have basic ideas, I just need help fleshing them out really and populating pages xD



  • Minor update: we are currently actively brainstorming through both discord and a steadily growing Google doc, and things are looking really promising.
