In the beginning, the gods promised power and immortality to their followers through the gift of magic. In a short time the corruption and greed of humankind plunged the magic kingdoms into conflict, unleashing the forces of Chaos. Powerful beasts were summoned into the realm of men, and potent magic warped the landscape. Eventually the world was rent asunder, fractured into island realms split between planes of existence. The gods of Law regained the upper hand and brought order to the realms by installing Wizard Kings to control and limit and use of magic. But the gods of Chaos conspired with their devotees, and hid within the realms secret knowledge and magical artefacts in the hope that Chaos would rise again.
Chaos Reborn is a strategy game by award-winning designer Julian Gollop. At the start of the game you are an apprentice wizard hoping to build your knowledge and power to win the favour of gods and become powerful enough to influence the fate of the Cosmos. Eventually you must choose the path of Law, Chaos or Nature (the ‘neutral’ path), but your journey will lead you to explore the virtues and limitations of all alignments.
