THE SICK LAND

Creepy and Compelling

DIRGE

Magi-punk Utopia

By Team Contract, member

Aug 6, 2016: If I were to try and categorize Dirge as a genre, I would have to go with Utopian Magi-punk. Basically think Scifi level tech that is powered by magic. Multi-dimensional beings, elementals, floating AI’s, immortal sentinels in powered armor. There is enough CoolStuff(TM) going on here to captivate fans of Scifi, superhero and fantasy.

It’s a complex world that is being set and the strong writing pulls it off from the very beginning with a set of 5 prologues.
