Picture Roman legions marching their banners of progress to the furthest reaches of the continent…
What if it was the Caesars, not European Kings, who claimed the New World? Bringing medicines with them rather than diseases, and subjugating a land of disparate tribes who would centuries later unify into Rome’s most formidable rival.
Masslore’s first Storyworld, August One, offers an alternate vision of our world in which the great Roman Civilization continued to expand, evolving into a modern society. This is a world of technology both strange and familiar—antiquated in some ways but magical in most. August One is a splintered timeline but still gripped by common crises of the modern age—radicalism, media madness, cultural polarization—all amplified by the Ancient Roman pomp we know well.
