The premise of ''Chaos'' could best be described in the XMeetsY style as ''{{Rifts}}'' meets ''TabletopGame/MutantChronicles'' meets ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'' meets ''{{Exalted}}'' meets ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' meets ''TabletopGame/GammaWorld'' meets ''TabletopGame/CthulhuTech'' meets ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. Yeah. SerialEscalation is definitely in play here.

The idea is that it's supposed to be published to be compatible with MutantsAndMasterminds under their M&M Superlink License; not so much because it's exactly a SuperHero [[TheVerse world]], although it sort of is that as well, but more because it's instead some crazy SchizoTech AnachronismStew UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny FantasyKitchenSink NinjaPirateZombieRobot SerialEscalation {{Troperiffic}} Fueled-Solely-By-The-RuleOfCool [[TheVerse world]] of insanity populated chiefly by [[PersonOfMassDestruction beings so powerful]] that their interactions can [[PVPBalanced only be handled by rules designed for super heroes]]. And even then, only barely.

It goes a little something like this: It's AfterTheEnd. Well, technically, it's more like DuringTheWar. WorldWarIII has broken out, leading to TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. What's left is a [[DesertPunk wasteland]], an [[EarthIsABattlefield endless battlefield]] of [[FireAndBrimstoneHell burning destruction]] where survival or annihilation are the only prizes. For those few [[TrueNeutral Garns]] who aren't tied up with one side or the other, it's a ScavengerWorld, living like frightened mice, few survived the [[ApocalypseHow Nine Days Of Fire]] unless protected behind layers of what is now LostTechnology, which is primarily the two [[OrderVersusChaos main factions]] left fighting it out over what's left of the Earth. The PlayerCharacters would typically take the roles of members of one or the other of those factions, either the [[ChaoticGood rebellious]] [[LaResistance Revs]], who've got kind of a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop going on; that "society is bad" and they're fighting for freedom by overthrowing it; in [[WorldHalfEmpty this world]] they somehow manage to be the good guys-- more established than your typical LaResistance, they've actually got their very own extremely...[[{{badass}} zealous]] ChurchMilitant to back them up complete with it's own [[MeaningfulName Meaningfully Named]] EmperorScientist CrystalDragonJesus [[MessianicArchetype Messiah]] called [[http://www.thenazareneway.com/yeshua_jesus_real_name.htm Josh]] (who by the way is actually an ancient [[EldritchAbomination Outer God]] reborn in [[GodInHumanForm human form]] after an epic cosmic defeat) -- or the [[ObviouslyEvil evil]] [[TheEmpire Socs]]. What's left of the OneWorldOrder, CyberneticsEatYourSoul is kind of these guys' story. Not that the other guys don't sort of have [[{{Nanomachines}} Cybernetics]] too...and crazy [[MindOverMatter telekinetic powers]], but somehow it doesn't eat ''their'' souls. Well, [[KudzuPlot it's complicated]].

''The Chronicles Of Fate'' has recently undergone a [[OddlyNamedSequel name change]] to, [[DarkAgeOfSupernames simply]], CHAOS. Throughout the rest of this wiki, it's still going to be referred to as ''The Chronicles Of Fate'', mostly because [[TheyJustDidntCare I just can't be bothered]] to go through and change all the names, but just be aware that's not the name anymore.

''Chaos'' (formerly ''The Chronicles Of Fate'') is a [[TabletopGames Tabletop Game]] [[{{Sourcebook}} Campaign Setting]] currently in production by Unknown20Troper. [[DevelopmentHell In theory, it has a publisher lined up ready and willing to publish it as soon as it's done. A successful RPG publisher who's successfully published several RPG books in the past. In practice, that contract was signed a long time ago, has probably lapsed, and it remains to be seen whether the project will ever be finished anyway]]. So ''Chaos'' is currently {{Vaporware}}-- hopefully it ''won't'' advance completely to OrphanedSeries or StillbornSerial status. If RealLife didn't [[CreatorBreakdown keep getting in the author's way]], it would stand a much better chance of getting finished someday.

* AGodAmI (Josh definitely is, of the accurate assessment sort. Somewhere between PhysicalGod and AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence. So is his wife, Jen, essentially [[NatureSpirit Mother Nature]]. Their enemy, the evil Marcy, [[AncientConspiracy secret lord of the Socs]], fits this trope too, she's more in the GodInHumanForm category. All were once PowersThatBe/[[AnthropomorphicPersonification Anthropomorphic Personifications]]/{{Eldritch Abomination}}s (and they sort of still are. Like I keep saying, it's [[TheChrisCarterEffect very complicated]]), with Josh having used to have been essentially [[{{YHWH}} that God. You know the one.]] And Marcy being basically the equivalent of [[{{Satan}} the person that that person fights]]. They got [[{{Nerf}} Nerfed]]. [[spoiler:Later, in the future of the timeline, they all regain their former power.]] To make things more complicated, most regular PlayerCharacters can [[SerialEscalation become so powerful over time]] with [[StockSuperpowers whatever their particular powersets happen to be]] ([[MindOverMatter telekinetic]], [[{{Nanomachines}} nanotechnological]], etc), that they can eventually come up for some version of this [[EnergyBeings upgrade]] themselves. Has an example up and down pretty much every level of the OurGodsAreGreater scale.)

The idea is ''also'' that it's supposed to be not just the one campaign {{Sourcebook}}, which [[DevelopmentHell itself will hopefully ever be finished]], but once it is, beyond that, an entire ExpandedUniverse which will be developed to be set in the same [[TheVerse universe]]-- {{Novels}}, [[VideoGames Computer and maybe Console Games]], maybe even {{Graphic Novel}}s or {{Manga}}, an [[AnimatedShows Animation]] or {{Anime}}, a CollectibleCardGame or even maybe a [[{{Film}} Movie]]. The hope is that some day people he's never heard of will be writing bad FanFic set in his world. Something like the WhateleyUniverse, the world of FateStayNight, or even ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' itself. A {{troper}} can dream, can't he?

->''The year 2246 AD. Earth is a tomb. The corpses of Old Humanity lie buried beneath the desolate, death-haunted wastes of a world that ended in fire. In their wake — new, transhuman races — stronger, stranger, forged in the crucible of war and bloodshed on a scale never known before. For the first time since Neanderthal man shared the planet with early Homo sapiens, more than one species of humans walk the Earth. Advances in technology and changes in culture have led the sons of man down three separate evolutionary paths. Each has their own culture, their own way of life, their own technologies and their own Gods. They have become fundamentally incompatible, and they are engaged in a bitter war for survival.''
