Λ | Lambda Earth

The Earth of 250 million years ago was far different than the Earth you are familiar with. Near the end of the Permian, the Earth was dominated by extremes nearly every aspect.

The ancestors of the dinosaurs roamed across the great continent of Pangea and massive sharks prowled the Panthalassic Ocean. Even so, much of land lay empty, testament to the massive extinctions that would eventually claim ninety percent of all species.

Impossibly, the late Permian of Earth Lambda is also populated by a small but diverse population of humanoids. Most communities are tiny and isolated, but on the eastern coast of Pangea, not far from the equator in what is today western Africa, there lies a strange and magical valley: The Mystical Realm of Anda.

Numerous peoples out of myth and legend call Pangea home, but the realm of Anda is the home of four races:

  • The subtle Rakshasa, a race of nomadic cat people skilled in sorcery and killing.
  • The wise Ganesha, the long-lived elephant people enslaved by the Insaan.
  • The clever Vanara, a forest-dwelling race of monkey people long thought to be extinct.
  • The power-hungry Insaan, humans not very different from you or me. They arrived from beyond the Great Waste after a cataclysm bringing disease and war with them.

In this primordial and deadly Earth a strange history unfolds. One where extreme life forms vie for survival in extreme environments against the backdrop of a slowly dying ecosystem.
