Story can grow from any medium, from the familiar camaraderie of the basement D&D group to the Twitter feed game. Dark Metal operates in an environment which blends some of both and adds a wealth of its own customization - a multi-roomed, code-supported chatroom for exploring a collaborative fiction experience of a supernatural-cyberpunk world.
In the year 2000, the actions of warring supernaturals brought their existence to the attention of humanity in ways that they were unable to conceal. The resulting world war caused global havoc, decimating populations, destroying countries, and causing massive environmental damage; the end of the old world.
As fancy chatrooms, MUSHes are best played with a little bit of support software. Your easiest option is to use our browser-based client; although we're still working the rough edges off it, it'll serve just fine for most purposes.
