An Introduction


Welcome to Arx, After the Reckoning! Arx is a text-based roleplaying game, where every player participates in a collaborative narrative, guiding characters whose individual stories can and will impact the world and change the course of the overarching shared story of the game.

Arx is set in an original fantasy world, inspired by works such as Joe Abercrombie's 'First Law' series and George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones. It tells a story of intrigue and adventure between the six great noble houses and the crown as they deal with a world where magic and myth has been long forgotten.
