Nobody ever could agree on whether their arrival heralded the end of the world, or the destruction heralded their flight.
"Nobody could come up with a better way to describe it. The world was dying. Monsters arose from the lands, the land quaked, the seas roiled and the air was choked with fire and smoke. Our lands were killing us. Our homes were being destroyed. And the priests prayed, and the machinists worked, and those who could do neither merely waited.
And then the Flock appeared on the horizon.
Like a great swarm, they blotted out the sun as they moved closer – a great armada of colossal, slow-moving creatures, larger than continents – some gliding through the air, some coasting through the seas. Their forms were all different – some looking like ancient creatures told of in books, some as creatures we knew and saw in our daily life, and some as great foreign bodies no man could make sense of.
And when they stopped at our land, as if waiting for us, we knew they were our only chance.
We left our dying land, and boarded the Flock.
Once we boarded, we found that we weren’t the only ones who were being driven from our lands. Entire civilizations had already been built atop these creatures, vast cities and structures mounted on their backs or hanging from their sides and bodies… and the peoples and civilizations were there to greet, commiserate with, or plot against us. We built what we could, and joined them as the Flock prepared to leave our dead country… presumably for yet-dying lands. We weren’t the first of the Passengers, and from the sounds of things, we won’t be the last.
What’s more, even the oldest Passengers say that there were old structures, ruins and artifacts strewn across the Flock, even before they stepped aboard… as if these creatures really are worlds unto themselves.
Are they fleeing from something… or answering a call? Where are they going, or are they directionless?
Whatever the answer, we’re along for the ride, whether we like it or not."

Submissions open, and newcomers to D&D welcome. I am more than happy to help those who don't know much about D&D but are still interested. Sessions will be held in Skype on a weekly basis!
We're not starting until Pantheon ends, though, so there's still plenty of time.
