Most of the site is written in-world from the perspectives of Calne's inhabitants, though a few pages (this one included) are written to describe the world from a player's 'meta' perspective.
Calne is a world created for this campaign by the DM. While it is homebrewed, it draws heavily on themes from Lovecraft, China Mieville's Bas Lag, steampunk, and previous homebrew campaigns which in turn drew upon the Iron Kingdoms setting. This is not heroic fantasy—shades of grey are favored over black and white.
I hope you enjoy.
