An Age-Old Rival Revived. Dragons Vs. Unicorns.
Forged from the abyss by the elder gods, the history of Soria spans over 10,000 years. In this time, the people of the world have seen bloody wars, the rise and fall of divine empires, pitched struggles between dragons and unicorns—the very children of the gods who created men. Though the seed of civilization was planted on the continent of Elitor, people crossed the wide oceans to other lands, and to divergent evolutions. Today the world revolves around two great powers: Telsemar in the east, and Drumnaught in the west. It is from the dusty volumes in the duty halls of these cities’ grand depositories, that we look back on the tumultuous history of Soria and the tales of Metal and Magic.

WHAT IS OF METAL AND MAGIC?
OMAM is a group of authors who write collaborative stories set in the high fantasy world or Soria. Regarding that world, refer to the words of Soria’s own Professor Nasrin Arakat, of the famed Telsemar University, who writes, “Soria was once a battlefield of the gods. Ten thousand years ago, dragons warred with unicorns and warred among themselves, and men ultimately bore most of the burden. In the short history of this world, tribal warriors have challenged prophets, empires have risen and fell, new races of humans have emerged and been extinguished. Magic has since disappeared, so today we are left with only stories. Some believe these stories are little more than myth. I believe there is more truth to magic than most are willing to accept.”
