The world of tGA has seen many grand events unfold, most recently a worldwide Catastrophe caused by the destruction of [[TheMagocracy the legendary mage city of Alent]] at the end of the last Great War between demons who had intended to conquer the world and various alliances who had fought back against the hordes. The magical explosion of the City of Mages decimated the armies, created a strange phenomenon known as the Anomaly in its place, rearranged the continents, unleashed a great many monsters of unknown origin into the wilderness and ushered in the Fourth Age. Those from all sides who had mysteriously survived the explosion at ground zero suffered from an equally mysterious, widespread amnesia, having forgotten the last days of the war and how the Catastrophe had happened to begin with. The gods whose presence was once felt in the world have mysteriously grown silent, leading to changes within their clergies who are trying to have their prayers reach them for answers.

In the following two relatively peaceful decades that have passed since then, the rival demon clans have set aside their differences and founded the Andarian Empire led by the Tetrarchy, four archdemons of the High Legions, although tensions still exist among these rivals who each want to be on top of the hierarchy. As the demons try to recover their fading strength and expand their empire via various means, so too have other new sovereign states--ranging from city-states to kingdoms--risen from the ashes of the old world as various races and factions try to adapt to a life after the Catastrophe in a world that has become both foreign and dangerous for them to explore. Although the Andarian Empire has reached out to the other nations diplomatically and seemingly wishes to coexist with its neighbors, many other budding nations fear that it is only a matter of time before the ever-scheming demons show their true colors and begin a war of conquest once more...a war from which the world might not recover this time around if ambitions of various rulers and power-hungry individuals are left unchecked.

[[http://www.thegamersalliance.net/forums/index.php The Gamer's Alliance]], or tGA, is a diceless [[PlayByPostGames Play By Post]] {{Role Playing Game}} set in an original Medieval fantasy world which emphasizes writing and character development over combat. The [[http://www.thegamersalliance.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=546 rules]] are lax for the most part and allow a free playing environment although they're strict enough to prevent god-moding.

The world of tGA has seen many grand events unfold, most recently a worldwide catastrophe caused by a mysterious beast, the [[EldritchAbomination Godslayer]]. It single-handedly ended a drawn-out war by devouring the two gods responsible for the conflict, and the resulting shift in power rearranged the continents and killed countless people. The beast formed a cult around it and fell asleep shortly after its rampage, and the six nations of the world ended up living in isolation and rebuilding their war-torn kingdoms while dreading what future had in store for them. At the same time the [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]], whose god the Godslayer had devoured, got used to their newfound freedom and began massing their forces to take over the world while they quickly conquered the most ravaged nation which became their base of operations. It didn't take long for ambitions to grow even in these dreadful times, however, and various factions rose among the races of the world as more and more people began bidding for power.

After over 10 years of relative peace, sinister forces stirred, forcing old and new heroes to form the [[TheAlliance Grand Alliance]] to oppose this rising threat. However, a few of the Alliance's enemies reacted by doing the unthinkable: they put their differences aside and formed the [[LegionOfDoom Crimson Coalition]] to counter the Alliance. The goals of these rival armies escalated into a new war while the demons, the Godslayer's cult and a few neutral factions observed the conflict. Despite their different ideals, the Alliance and the Coalition have their equal share of heroes and villains, thus [[MoralityKitchenSink blurring the line of good and evil]].

It remains to be seen whether the armies, bickering races and long-time rivals can eventually put aside their differences and combine their strength to face the looming threats of the Godslayer's cult, demons, [[PhysicalGod rogue gods]], [[TheUndead the undead]] and even ambitious individuals, all of whom have {{plan}}s [[GambitRoulette of]] [[EvilPlan their]] [[XanatosSpeedChess own]]. The world of tGA is not a happy place to live in, but heroes on all sides are willing to fight against the odds in order to reach for a better tomorrow.

Even though the world of tGA has its share of fantasy elements such as elves, dwarves, dragons, magic and such, there are also other elements such as the occasional airship, pirates, samurai, communists, fundies, the Soap, a gruesome elven plague, zombies and, last and least, Scuns. The stories have their share of dramatic elements, but humour is present as well. The world currently consists of [[http://www.thegamersalliance.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=724 six nations]], each of which has various factions with different motives. Although the story has the occasional battle and can get serious, humour is present as well, and the focus tends to be more on character development and interaction than combat.

He let his caught friends flee the occupied city alive while weaving a convincing enough tale to his superiors for the seemingly "evil" reasons he let the escape happen.

* MalignedMixedMarriage: Omaroch (demon) and Delora (human) fall in love, get married and have two half-demon sons. Their respective clergies support rival gods and thus see the marriage as well as the offspring as utterly irredeemable. It escalates into a full-blown conflict as both factions actively hunt the family, which eventually results in Omaroch's capture and subsequent torture and brainwashing by demons, Delora's death at the hands of human clerics and one of the children being sold into slavery.
** The tragic chain of events later repeats itself when the aforementioned couple's half-demon son Refan marries the human warrior Skye. The human clergy sets its eyes on the newly wed not only because they once again see such union as taboo but also because they want to capture and use Refan and his son for a more sinister purpose.
