Welcome to Anomalous!
What started back in late December of 2011 as a Proboards RPG has now been revamped and made the move to Deviantart! We still have a lot to do in order to get the group up and running, but we hope to go live by the end of January 2016! Rest assured the wait will be well worth it!
The Main Idea!
A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away a massive meteor crashed into a land populated by many creatures, the most intelligent of which were the horses. While the meteor's landing caused mass destruction and death, over the years its crater gradually became a vast lake at the center of the realm. The lake, named Lake Vesta, became the primary water source of all the creatures and, as plants and animals began to repopulate its edges, things seemed to return to normal. Over the years, however, strange things began to happen! Fish with teeth and two-headed salamanders began to appear, but it wasn't long before the anomalies of the fish and amphibians became those of the horses. At first, the 'mutants' were often mistrusted and shunned from living a normal life... But slowly equids with similar mutations began to come together and, finding comfort in their similarities, bonds were made and herds all their own were formed.
Centuries down the line, the world is a completely different place.
The 'mutants' now rule the land, using their adaptations to their advantage to better survive in a realm both beautiful and terrifying. Six clans have been forged, each with their own unique adaptations and abilities that make them better suited to the territory that they have claimed, and each with their own history and lore. The Austerians, noble stags of the forests; the Linx, the misunderstood carnivorous equids of the mountains; the Nombeko, the vulnerable but jovial inhabitants of the plains; the Saraph, the fierce pegasus of the desert; the Scybilline, the religious reptilians of the shrubland; and, finally, the Hihiri, the secluded inhabitants of the coastal islands.
Magic runs strong in the veins of many, believed by some to have been gifted to their ancestors by the gods that sent that first tumultuous meteor. For now, a tentative peace hangs over the world, with each clan keeping to their own... But for many, dark thoughts have begun to creep into their minds.
How long can such a peace last?
What can you look forward to?
A realm full of magic and strange but wonderful mutations! From the fierce pegasus of the desert to reptilian moon-worshipers and the secretive stag-like equids of the forest, there is so much in store for those who choose to join Anomalous!
