Challenge #04027-K009: Planet-wide Intervention

A: leave this forest you are a plague to the realm.

B: first off, rude. Secondly I’m just observing the night sky. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.

A: You are nothing but weeds that need to go.

B: look I can see that “Miasma” and “demons” are invading this forest why don’t ask the neighbouring kingdoms to help? Hell even the “Human” sacred magic might help.

A: the orc and dwarf are too brutish and drunk to help and don’t mention those dull ear scu-

Suddenly the ground began to shake, dozen of different animals began to flee and panic as a giant crack rips across the sky.


B: like I said “observing”

The strange figure put a finger near their ear

B: [Observer to Central Command] [I repeat this is Observer #177013 to Central Command do you hear me?] [ Dimensional Barrier integrity is at 65%, Astral energy is now leaking into this layer ] [natives are fractures, different nation fighting for who is the supreme race, resources and beliefs, unable to unite within 250 years of hidden intervention.]

[ Recommendations: abandon this realm] -- Anon Guest

[AN: I have said it before and I've said it again. PLEASE... Do not send me your own diddly-dang story as a prompt. The briefer and vaguer a prompt is, the more fun and liberty I can have with the thing]

Some worlds are best left alone to their own devices. The Terran Planetary Survey Force knows this. Their teams are trained to not interfere. That said, many of them interfere anyway. Forgiveness may be the providence of the divine, but to meddle is essentially Human.

This was one of the deepest-time colonies that Humanity had ever made or encountered.

Their goal, to make fantasy into reality, had actually worked. Magic... in as far as it could exist... did exist in this world. And so did Elves, Dwarves, Dragons... and many other things. This was not Mythos, where gengineering had made creatures that looked like fantasy creatures. This was a world where fantasy had become reality.

Elves ruled the world. They could live for five hundred years, and revelled in high standards of perfection. Dwarves labored inside mountains and underground. Digging out anything shiny and creating vast caverns filled with life adapted to the dark. There were creatures that came into being simply because of belief in the divine or the profane.
