The Anima d20 Campaign Setting, sometimes shortened to ‘Anima Campaign Setting’ or simply ‘Anima’, is a Campaign Setting that is set in a futuristic Earth after a great cataclysm.
Main Story Line Edit
Long ago, before humans were but a posibility, great beings ruled the earth. We know of them as the Deities. The rule lasted for millions of years, until one god, Anima, grew tired of his position within the ranks of the gods. He gathered his supporters and waged war against the gods. Just when Anima believed he was on the verge of winning, the other gods sacrificed themselves to seal him within a unbreakable prison and sealed it deep beneath the earth.
When the dust had settled, the world had been broken and destroyed. Thousands of years past and the world slowly recovered, new creatures replaced the strange beasts of old, the humans among them. The humans fought among themselves and the planet suffered, until the humans discovered Anima's prison deep beneath the Earth and once more, the gods were unleashed.
