“If our friends ever return, will they return the chaos, or complete the order?”
- Book of Light, Chapter One
For decades the remote village of Solis has seen peace, but it has not always been that way. Long time ago, longer than anyone in the village can remember, the village suffered through a dark time as the forces of evil moved to overtake it. A small band of heroes, known only as “The Circle of the Five” (or simply “The Five”) fought back the darkness and saved the village… only to never be seen again.
Now the village’s oracle sees visions of the evil’s return, images of the darkness sweeping across the land and overtaking the living with such intensity that there is no doubt that it will soon be reality. The village, having lived at peace for so long, lacks the resources to battle such evil.
Reluctantly, the leadership in Solis has decided that it was time to seek the support of outsiders, mercenaries if you will, and be ready for the possibility of defending the village. No one is to say when, or even if, the evil will appear - or even what form it will take - but one can never be too safe…
OOC: This adventure is inspired by a campaign written several years ago for D&D 4th Edition, and is currently being rewritten for 13th Age. At least at first, the path this story will take ay reflect that inspiration… but who knows where the framework that is Storium will allow this story to evolve into.
Character Creation: You’re free to make any character you like with one sort of restriction… it is the intent that all the characters are not actually from Solis or the immediate area. You could be from nearby regions or come from areas far and wide, but one way or another you are outsiders coming to an unknown village and a strange land. Everyone’s a mercenary, if you will.
Solis is a port village, on the southern tip of a relatively unexplored continent. You will all be arriving by boat.
