Setting: It is the third millenium of the Nova Imperium, an interstellar empire that protects humanity and maintains civilization in a universe that is as vast as it is hostile. The city of Sentinel is the heart of this empire and home to the Obsidian Empress, built upon no planet and orbiting a star born to be a beacon of hope. Outside of Sentinel the Noble Houses act as the voice of the Empress, administrating assigned holdings while acting as protectors of artifacts critical to the stability of the Nova Imperium.
Plot: The city of Sentinel is preparing to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Obsidian Empress’s reign, a celebration that will bring tributes from all across the Imperium. Characters will learn of a plot against the Empress, and it will be up to them to prevent her death or deal with being witnesses to the greatest crisis in recorded history of the Imperium.

What to Expect: The city of Sentinel is not just the seat of Imperial rule, it acts as a galactic crossroads for much of the empire. If you are a loyal subject, the the city gates are open to you.
But it is also a city of intrigue, and as the home to the oldest archives it is a place where secrets often are put to rest. Over three thousand years of history holds many secrets, including clues to the time before the Imperium. There may be a reason that history is no longer spoken of… and you do not know who works to keep it that way.
