Erudite Tales is written in the style of high fantasy. It features technology both magical and conventional in a steampunk setting. A myriad of different mythical creatures such as elves and dwarves inhabit this universe.

Setting overview

When the Empire of Arckas became threatened by the heat death of the universe, the Arckasians chose to flee to other universes where the conditions of the Big Bang differed. Because Arckasians can travel sixth dimensionally, it is considered irrelevant when Erudite Tales takes place relative to Galactic Crucibles. The two settings exist outside of the normal rules of causality of one another.

Whether or not Erudite Tales came first or not, the Arckasians chose to shape a new universe to their liking, taking advantage of the different physics. The result the world of Erudite. The Arckasians played the role of gods and lived harmoniously with their creations.

A mysterious event known as the Shattering caused these old gods to disappear once more leaving the rest of mortal kind to live on their own with only the guidance of a handful of powerful artifacts known as Aard'Vorn.
