Dogs have inherited the world, building the kingdom of Pugmire untold centuries after the Ages of Man are over. These dogs have been uplifted to use tools and language, and they seek to rediscover the ruins of the Old Ones.
Some have learned to use the leftover technology of humanity, but they believe it to be magic handed to them by their lost gods. Others seek to create an ideal civilization, using a Code of Man compiled from ancient, fragmentary lore left behind by humanity.
Civilized dogs have a moral code that classifies some people as “good” and others as “bad,” although not “evil” — that’s reserved for insane monsters that only seek destruction and chaos. The world is dangerous and mysterious, but good dogs will persevere.
Pugmire is a world that juxtaposes the tropes of high fantasy with our relationship with domestic dogs. The main characters are pioneers that explore lost ruins in search of relics, knowledge, and danger. Enemies can either be monstrous or simply other misunderstood people, such as the cats of the Monarchies of Mau.
