Immortality, Insurrection, and the Iron Inquisition



“Freedom is the most elaborate of delusions; whether manifested in physical means by manacles, tyranny, or enslavement or cognitively manufactured by the psychological restraints of vices, lunacy, or unabated ambition, we all are beholden to our own masters.”

Domains: Hazlan
Levels: 10 – 18
Classes: Any, though certain class combinations are more viable than others.
Alignments: Any, though depending on your involvement, certain alignments would be more applicable than others.
Risk Level: High.  Players involved should prepare themselves for potential consequences depending on their involvement and choices.
Themes: Degeneration, hubris, moral dilemmas, zealotry, madness, oppression, and emancipation.
How to Get Involved:  Be present in Hazlan, follow the IC happenings, and/or involve yourself in the Lawgiver faith or Red Academy.  Mulan and Rashemi PCs have the potential to play a prominent role.  I’ll field and respond to PMs that express interest and state the desired involvement.

"I did not spend these countless dark years fighting and clawing my way over others of your ilk to earn the freedom to form this family, for you to take it away in one lifeless breath. The promise of Peiter's throat is an insult, Lady Kazandra, and you forget we are House Ulciscor. We will not kneel."
-Vespera

% until plot is ready: - 50%
% of plot completed in game: - 2%
Recommended Levels: - ~5-15
Recommended Classes: - all, except Paladin*
Alignment: - all, except good*
Risk Level: - Differing consequences can be expected from differing circumstances; risks can range from very low to very high.
Adventure type: - Series of mini-events (and milestone-based major events) that are shaped by the previous outcomes of events. Variable in scope and depth.
How to get involved: (OOC:) Send DM Nocturne a PM expressing your interest and a quick description of your character. (IC:) Find the contractor. A simple job here and there. But everyone is watched, and a few will be tested.

Synopsis:
A hint of corruption flickers back into existence once more within the old Barovian crypts; tendrils of inky malevolence seeking to curl around the light, to snuff or to steal. Odd glyphs appear painted on the walls in old places, and whispers of religious chanting escape in the wind. A foreign service of undeath hunts their own kind to the end, forcing desperate measures made for existence, risking the eyes of the castle. Elegies of Angels draws upon plots carried out some years back, such as Undying and Malevolent Shadows, moving story and key NPCs forward.

*: Though paladins and good aligned PCs are not mainly involved, there will likely be later situations that call upon champions of good.

DM appreciations:

Spoiler: show
  • Out-of-the-box/out-of-game-mechanic thinking is welcome.
  • Embrace IC consequences (positive and negative)! Victory is never assured.
  • Mature content is to be expected. Please advise if you are under the age of 18 when you are involved.
  • Characters are rewarded based on roleplay effort and endurance.


Information subject to change.
