[[http://burningpost2.co.uk The Burning Post II]] is a dark medieval fantasy [[RolePlayingGame RP-enforced]] {{MUD}} about mages and the people who arrest and burn them. The Knights and the Church persecute mages, allegedly, to save their souls from the horrors of Abyss. The Burning Post II takes place in a small principality, separated from the rest of the planet by a mysterious purple barrier. Mages and demons are very real, and everyone knows it. The game's setting strongly resembles medieval Europe during the time of the Inquisitions, although there are Victorian elements as well.

An [[RolePlayingGame RP-enforced]] {{MUD}}, [[http://burningpost2.co.uk The Burning Post II]] is fundamentally a game about mages and the people who arrest and burn them. The knights and Church do so, allegedly, to save mages from the "Abyss", the game's version of Hell. It takes place in a small principality, separated from the rest of the planet by a mysterious purple barrier. Mages as well as demons are very real, and the characters all know it. Still, the game's setting strongly resembles medieval Europe, although there are Victorian elements as well.

Organizations found in the small principality include the Holy Order of King Dav and its military branch, the Knights Lithmorran. Secular law enforcement is provided by the Reeves. There are merchants and bards (Troubadours), of course, as well as a group of scholars known as the Chimerists. It is a medieval setting, more or less, so nobles like to throw their weight around.
