What We Want: Original stories set in the world of Ruma, Earth, or another world, which build upon the themes (such as heroism, the gods, and the arcane) and imagery of Greek and Roman mythology. Please see below for additional details on the world of Ruma. Stories set in the world of Ruma do not have to meet any exact criteria as the world is fluid so anything can fit somewhere. Preference is for stories of the fantasy genre rather than modern, steampunk, or sci-fi.
About the world of Ruma: Ruma is an alternate Roman Empire set on an alternate version of Earth where the gods and magic are real. The RPG is set at the beginning of the Ruman Empire, somewhat akin to 0 A.D. on Earth. Hellas (Greece) has been reduced to ruins as Hellene magi opened portals to Hel and the Outer Realms to stop a Persyan invasion (known as the Sundering). Aegypt, also known as the Eternal Kingdom, has been ruled by the Pharaoh (rumored to be a Lich) for centuries. Their armies are archaic but augmented by magi and massive stone constructs. The Kell or Kellic people (based on Celtic society) and their mystical forests encroach upon Ruma from the west. Other cultures include the Normen (precursor to Vikings), Heermen (Germanic tribes), and the missing people of Atlantys.
The Ruman pantheon is the same as the Roman pantheon, with Iuppiter ruling Mount Olympos (which has been moved to the hills south of the city of Ruma after the Sundering of Hellas). The only big difference is Mars, who is more of a god of violence and murder than a god of war. Minerva (Athena) is the prominent goddess of war and tactics, and is venerated by the Ruman military.
