Welcome to a Climate-Shifting World: Step into a post-climate change realm, where a once-neoliberal dystopia has given rise to pandemics, mass extinction, and social unrest. Prepare to navigate the eternal gray skies caused by large-scale solar radiation management gone awry, as sulphuric mist clouds the horizon. It's a realm where the failure of green capitalism has left a power vacuum, paving the way for new factions to rise and claim their destiny.

Discover the Horde Factions: Align yourself with the Malthusian Elves, advocating for green pacifism in a hedonistic forest vegan glamping retreat. Or join the Swamp Goons, delving into primordial fossil fuel goop and exploring crypto mining and energy practices. Alternatively, become a bold Knight, mastering geoengineering and renewable energy while envisioning humanity's future beyond Earth. Or embrace the raw force of Gaia with the anarchist Goblins, who seek to rewild and disrupt with unbridled chaos. Avoid their jets of green slime or get muddy in the Goblins’ lair.

Unravel Secrets and Forge Alliances: As you construct faction-specific ritualistic structures, unveil forgotten prophecies, and engage in frenzied trade deals, you'll realize that every choice matters. The General Assembly calls, where factions present their findings and unexpected alliances form, revealing the intricate web of interconnectedness.

Embrace Pascale's Guidance: Seek wisdom from Pascale, the enigmatic AI housed in a biotechnological mycorrhizal hybrid supercomputer. Ask questions, decipher enigmatic quotes predicting the future, and gain insight that can turn the tide in your faction's favor. Participate in the collective coding of the realm you envision.

Prepare for the Final Confrontation: As the veil lifts, a shocking revelation exposes the true puppet master manipulating events from the shadows. Thwart the manipulator's schemes, confront inner conflicts, and navigate the delicate web of alliances and betrayals. The outcome of the final confrontation will determine the realm's fate and the future of the goblin-infused world.
