Blue skies seem endless over the city of Teysor.
Everyone is always saying how blessed they are, to live in the light, to be graced with peace and live in such a joyful and hopeful place.
The city is bright and colourful, with canals in the lower town, leading out to the sea. Thriving fishing population, dozens of joyous festivals a year, a bubbling, busy place, Teysor is one of the liveliest places to live in all the land.
Behind the lanterns and lights, the ruling family, The Valenthis, oversee their city with a fierce control.
The Ordinance is everything.
The collection of laws, ever more specific, updated constantly and obeyed at all costs, control every aspect of the lives of Teysor’s citizens. From traditions that must be upheld, to who they can marry, all the way to the most important law of all.
The Ordinance Against Conjuring and Fascination.
No person capable of magical acts may be permitted to live without savage and oppressive controls. Many are simply put to death.
Of course, to everyone who lives in Teysor, the Valenthis are benevolent and holy rulers, to whom they sing songs of joy and gratitude every full moon, every solstices, every holy day. No one dare do anything else.
But now, there are whispers, rumours and stories of someone gathering a few and leaving this place, heading to a fabled location where everyone can be free and magic is alive.
Your character should be a person who has a reason to be outcast from this society. I am open to suggestions as to things that might be repressed by the regime, but for your consideration-
- A high born noble who has discovered they are “cursed” with magic.
- A poet/artist who wants to create something outside of the control of the land.
- Someone balking against a forced marriage.
- A person who is determined to be educated.
The possibilities are endless here really, and I’m happy to consider anything that fits in with the general overarching theme of the oppression of this forcedly cheerful place. As a rule, unless you are a noble, there would be no reason for your character to be able to read for the most part, possibly some passable knowledge for the use of trading etc…
Submissions will be open for probably 2 weeks before I close and choose characters
