Others and Anomalies

A unique danger of Torn World.


The northern tribes know this kind of dangerous apparition as Others, but the people of the Empire cannot see or understand the devastation they cause. The scientists call them "anomalies", and many of the assimilated cultures have their own explanations, ranging from ghosts, wraiths, angry spirits and vengeful gods. To see more of the stories of the Empire scientists' current struggle to understand this phenomena, see the Invisible Menace storyline. This is a collection of short, unrelated stories and poetry which the Others feature in.
