The community was founded in June 2017, where its roots started with the World of Malice. That world came to an end, so we started a new world called Cavus, improving on our original formula. Cavus is a world set in its early 1800s that has just come out of a 1000 year long period of not having any kinds of magic except for the gravity-based null magic. One hundred years before the roleplays starting date, all forms of magic return to Cavus which causes a bit of chaos in the society, but fast forward to present day and there is a semblance of order and the remains of that former chaos.
Estorica is stat-less, emphasizing creativity. Estorica is a roleplay forum with a dedicated setting coming from the mind of its creators. (The Estorica Founders) A hearty mix of fantasy and fiction that comes together to provide exciting stories for people to create, and a platform for those stories to be appreciated by others. In some sense, it is a game, involving play by post elements, with rules and mechanics. In other aspects, it is collaborative writing experiment, with constants and variables. You can do multi-character freeform threads, introspective threads with a single character, travel threads where your character(s) face off against a gamemasters machinations, and super quick, super short threads solely for minor details.
This traditional, Play-by-Post setting offers brand new concepts and story arcs meant to challenge the norms of the High-Fantasy genre. An interactive game that’s managed by dedicated staff, waiting to help you and your fellow writers, guides the story of a wholly unique world.
To provide roleplayers a platform where they can create and share stories in a unique setting that is set apart from all others.

Cavus existed in a constant state of strife between Mortals, Birthless, and The Vagary. Battles were fought using the energies that existed before the creation of the world, and In this war, the world was covered in destruction, decay, and null magic. The God of Balance ‘Elise’ used all of the known magic in the world to defeat a threat to Mortals and Birthless alike. She did it with the hope that it would end all wars once and for all. Instead, it nearly stripped the world of magic, banishing Gods, and Birthless for over 1000 years.
Mortals lived in hatred of one another over those years, warring over resources, pride, and ideologies, and in their hatred they gave birth to the God Eater, and it gave creation to the Vagary. The Vagary battled with mortals in an attempt to conquer them all. The God Eater nearly ruled over all mortals thanks to his creation, but the mortals came together and begged the last known Birthless of the world to grant godhood to a savior, a restorer of magic. Their wish was granted, and magic was returned to the world. Mortals drove the God Eater back into the abyss and reclaimed their lands and freedom.
A century has passed since the defeat of the God Eater, and the stories of battles between gods have faded away into legend and folklore. The world once again finds itself teetering on the edges of war between mortals. Vagary continue to rise from the abyss to bring calamity to all. The cries of the weak go unanswered, and where magic was once abundant for all mortals only half wield it today.
