Shadowlack - An original scifi fantasy game and world building project. Since 2002.

Shadowlack is a Science Fantasy Play by Post RPG and World Building Project centralized around the planet Ramath-lehi. From its three moons (two of which are colonized), its vast continents, its diverse flora and fauna, its source of magic via the spirit world Fronima, to its space-faring inhabitants — Shadowlack is a truly engaging collaborative game. Shadowlack was originally founded in 1997, and made its debut online in 2002.

Shadowlack is wedged tightly between two genres: low Science Fiction and Fantasy, making it a Science Fantasy game. Science Fiction because it takes place after the destruction of what we know of as Earth, and on a completely different planet called Ramath-lehi. Humans no longer exist and the inhabitants of Ramath-lehi are capable of faster-than-light space travel. The Fantasy element is present in the underlying form of magic, which draws itself from what Ramathians refer to as Fronima (the Spirit World).
