Daichi Setting Primer A brief overview of the world your characters inhabit. More information can be provided at request, the goal of this page is to serve as a primer to give the broad strokes of the world.
EDITOR'S NOTE: On Technology: Diesel powered technology is extremely common and fully accepted in modern Daichi, it is almost unheard of for a farmer to not use at least a tractor or a truck, for a Samurai to not carry a machine gun or other advanced firearm and to not ride a Dieselcycle into battle. Noble houses field mechas called Armour and ( simple minded ) robots perform menial labor across daichi. The Technology is almost never beautiful or elegant but it is extremely common.
Dramatis Personae, some important people in Daichi To serve as a catalyst for injecting your characters into the world, here are some people you may know or at least have heard of.
Fates are a sort of super-background that anchor your character in the world of Daichi by giving them a personal quest and goal. They instantly elevate your character's importance in the story to being absolutely vital with major spotlight moments happening ever adventure that advance your personal goals and those of the campaign at the same time.

Art Dump and Writing Prompts This is something of a special little corner for the DM. I post any art I find that inspires me for the setting as well as occasional little writing prompts that pop into my head that I may or may not expand upon later. It helps my creativity and may do the same for you. Feel free to use any art you see for PCs if your having trouble finding art that fits the gameworld.
