About the adventure

"We were raised to obey. But now we have the power to decide our own fate." - Chainbreaker Xorai For a thousand years, dragons and necromancers have ruled without mercy. Using cloud-scraping towers to siphon magic away from the populace, they've carved the world up into personal fiefdoms that they squabble over across generations. Everything changed five years ago when the goddess Chorae broke the divine pact of neutrality and imbued a hundred followers with her power. These champions destroyed one nation's towers, taught the populace to use their magical gifts, and slayed their draconic petty king. The country was reborn as Bastion, the first free nation in a millennium. But the country's struggles are far from over. Your group's patron is one of the few remaining divine champions that led the revolution. They need you to fight off invaders, seize the dragons' hoarded relics, and turn the tide so that Bastion is the first land to overthrow their tyrant, not the last. Can you stoke the fires of freedom and spread them to the world, or will the memory of your deeds be buried beneath the rubble of your homeland? -- This custom hopepunk campaign in my new fantasy setting places your party in a pivotal role in the fate of Bastion, the one free nation in a world ruled by immortal tyrants. I'll take what you're excited about and build on it to interweave your creative interests with the campaign plot using my storytelling skills as a novelist.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need: A microphone that you can connect to your computer and use on a Zoom call. A free Roll20 account (https://app.roll20.net/create-account). An internet connection strong enough to be on Zoom and use Roll20 at the same time (you can get a free Zoom account at https://zoom.us/signup#/signup). A webcam is encouraged but not required. After joining the game, you'll want to join my Discord for planning/between-game discussion (I will send a Discord invite via SPG).

What I provide

Pathfinder rules, beautiful maps, Roll20 tools, unforgettable NPCs, a unique fantasy world, and a epic fantasy trilogy-scale plot drawing on my skills as a professional novelist.
