Everything has changed so much... Just a few thousand years everyone was living like in the tales and fantasy movies; living in towns, harvesting crops, using gold and silver as currency... But then those stubborn dwarfs brought progress and industrialization. Villages and old cities quickly became substituted by tall mazes of concrete and glass plagued with all kinds of people and races. Even those those who had always kept to themselves like the Orcs or the Fomorians came out of their caves and strongholds to join in the decadence of the big 'modern' cities. And then came the fancy Elves with their arcane studies and their science. We where just getting used to the new founded cities and industries when a wave of scientific advancements hit the lands and everything became more shiny, more fast, and more violent. And it didn't stopped there. Science only brought more and more science, and just in the last hundred years we created ships capable of travel into space, entire networks packed with all kinds of data called the 'internets', war machines and super-soldiers and flying cars that only covered even more the sun we once venerated as a God. David let out a sigh, looking at the polluted horizon from a balcony on a 403th floor of a hotel. No, he hadn't rented that room, he had sneaked into it and used it to get some rest for the night. It was sad to see the world being eaten little by little by so much progress, science and corruption... But thank God, there were still things to be discovered, lands to explore and adventures to be had, and that brought a brief smile to David's lips.
