In Blighted Earth, Arcane magic is a scourge that ravages the Earth. The known world was once controlled by a highly advanced Magocracy, which sapped the planet of its resources in order to perpetuate their own progress. As the world became scarred, survival became strained. Despite and because of this, magic is the most common cause of and solution to people’s problems. Since the fall of the old world, many new organizations have risen from the ashes. Each organization has a different view of what the future of Earth should be, and what the answer to the blighting effects of Arcane magic is.

The adventures of heroes or villains have the opportunity to forever alter the course of the world and determine the future environment for all. You can choose to return the world to a prosperous and verdant state, or live with the world as it is and establish a harsh rule over the wastelands. Will you revive a dying planet or deal its death blow?
