Welcome to Maelstrom Earth!

All realities, universes and timelines stem from a single point and will eventually return to the point. We are that point. The origin of it all, and it all weaves back and forth here but we also are our own world.

To know the setting of Maelstrom Earth, you need simply pick up a history book, turn on the news, read a newspaper or flip through a magazine.

Here, we follow the real-world timeline events with key points of comic history woven in. We use current day, time, tech and events to move forward with. Events such the world wars, 9/11, and yes, even Elvis, are all part of this Earth.

We also incorporate comics into the game setting whenever possible, and we encourage our players to help contribute to our setting as an ongoing story. Was your immortal OC one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence? Perhaps Howard Stark interned under Tesla himself and helped build Atomic Robo. Maybe The Question was part of breaking open the Watergate conspiracy, or Winter Soldier and Black Widow were active during the dissolution of the USSR. Was Captain America a founding member of the Justice Society? Was Magneto rescued from Auschwitz by Wonder Woman? The sky is the limit! Every new character added to the game has not just the vague canon of the comics world to add to, but weaves their character into the modern history of Earth itself. Our game canon is a growing and flexible document; as new characters are added we will modify and change the timeline so that the story grows richer and better over time.

Our major cities of focus are Gotham, New York City and Metropolis with dimensions such as Asgard and Avalon as well as Kingdoms such as Atlantis added in. Future expansion includes Star and Central City, San Francisco and Los Angeles, and other iconic locations where our popular superheroes come from. Do you have a burning need for a Madripoor? Talk to staff and we'll help build it and describe it!

Unlike some games, our emphasis here is about the continuity of the game's canon. We want to avoid the pitfalls and mistakes of other games, where new applications undo history for dozens of players. We want every new player to feel like they are contributing to the ongoing narrative, reacting to the history unfolding around them.

We want you to come help tell our story!
