“At the round earth's imagined corners blow
Your trumpets, angels, and arise, arise
From death, you numberless infinities
Of souls, and to your scattered bodies go ;
All whom the flood did, and fire shall o'erthrow,
All whom war, dea[r]th, age, agues, tyrannies,
Despair, law, chance hath slain, and you, whose eyes
Shall behold God, and never taste death's woe.
But let them sleep, Lord, and me mourn a space ;
For, if above all these my sins abound,
'Tis late to ask abundance of Thy grace,
When we are there. Here on this lowly ground,
Teach me how to repent, for that's as good
As if Thou hadst seal'd my pardon with Thy blood.”
― John Donne

The Silent Partner
(credit to CosmicRay/DM Erebus for concept)



"When I started out I was just a peddler moving across the blind face of a distant land. Moving, always moving. Always gone... and in the end I'd always offer weapons. And they'd always take them. Of course I was gone before they realized what they'd purchased." - Leland Gaunt, 'Needful Things'

The Time of Unparalleled Darkness


“On the day the world ends
A bee circles a clover,
A fisherman mends a glimmering net.
Happy porpoises jump in the sea,
By the rainspout young sparrows are playing
And the snake is gold-skinned as it should always be.

On the day the world ends,
Women walk through the fields under their umbrellas,
A drunkard grows sleepy at the edge of a lawn,
Vegetable peddlers shout in the street,
And a yellow-sailed boat comes nearer the island,
The voice of a violin lasts in the air
And leads into a starry night.

And those who expected lightning and thunder,
Are disappointed.
And those who expected signs and archangels' trumps,
Do not believe it is happening now.
As long as the sun and the moon are above,
As long as the bumblebee visits a rose,
As long as rosy infants are born,
No one believes it is happening now.

Only a white-haired old man, who would be a prophet,
Yet is not a prophet, for he's much too busy,
Repeats while he binds his tomatoes:
No other end of the world will there be,
No other end of the world will there be.”

Czeslaw Milosz, "A Song on the End of the World"

Frostbitten



“Walls have ears.
Doors have eyes.
Trees have voices.
Beasts tell lies.
Beware the rain.
Beware the snow.
Beware the man
You think you know.” – Catherine Fisher


Features:
Domains: The Frozen Reaches – Vorostokov.
Levels: 5 - 10
Classes: Any.
Alignments: Any.
Risk Level: Medium - High.  Permanent IC consequences are possible dependent on choices.
Themes: Tyranny, Oppressive Elements, Arrogance, Degeneracy.
How to Get Involved:  Express interest through forum PM or discord message.   ((All spots filled))
% until plot is ready: 100%
% of plot completed in game: 100%[/s]

Additional Notes: This episodic plot consisting of three to five sessions will be run nightly from roughly 8/9PM CST to ~ 12/1AM CST (possibly with a weekend session for a denouement, if needed).  During the course of this plot, your PC will be unavailable outside of the plot so make arrangements with an alternate character if you plan to play outside of the event’s duration. 

Six to eight slots are available starting with players that have never been in a DM event or plot before.  If all the slots are not taken, I’ll make an announcement and expand the involvement criteria, but this is intentionally designed for an opportunity to those that haven’t experienced a DM plot/event before.  This plot will kick off in one to two weeks and occur during the week. If you wish to create a new character for it, go ahead and start their play and RP.  Bear in mind the encounters will be balanced for the level range listed above. Feel free to message me on discord or via forum PM if you have questions.[/center]
