Dragon’s Vale – A Future Unbound
“Any sufficiently advance technology is indistinguishable from magic”
— Arthur C. Clarke
“Dragon’s Vale” On Earth in the distant future mankind has been transformed beyond all recognition. Mutation, wars and runaway technology have condemned the world to quarantine from the outside universe and most people have forgotten their origins.
This is a world in which technology has become magical, in which Elves, Mages and Unicorns walk the world as the products of unimaginable advances in science and technology over unknown ages of time. Their history forgotten, men treat their world as a natural place, with no thought to their origins. Only one place remembers everything, “Dragon’s Vale”, a remote valley by the ocean, created at a time when men ruled the world like gods.
To conquer “Dragon’s Vale” offers unlimited power. But men have forgotten what else lies there awaiting them.
“Here be dragons! Go away, or die!”
