Torn World is a unique setting, and shared worlds can be challenging to explain to people who aren't already familiar with the concept. We think of it as science fantasy -- a little science fiction, a little fantasy, plus some alternate history and steampunk, so maybe it's interstitial or slipstream too.

How do you describe Torn World to your friends when they ask what you are reading or otherwise enjoying online? If you attend science fiction conventions, do you talk about Torn World there? How do you think it fits into the speculative fiction field?

I'm hoping someone has better luck at this than I do. My explanations tend to be either lengthy, or condensed to: it's complicated. :love:

In ancient times, humans played with time. But they went too far, and shattered their world.

A friend asked me to describe it in 30 words or less. This is what I came up with:

Torn World: shared-world science-fantasy platform for stories, artwork and more, where giant snow-unicorns roam and time manipulation is a source of incredible power... and potential for destruction!
