A world that has been in a state of war for thirty years now knows a fragile semblance of peace. With Aelor’s capital, Eghir, fallen to the enemy; the war has effectively ended. The Republic of Alara’s soldiers, under the command of General Kerrak, roam Eghir’s streets freely. With Aelor’s King Gebrandt in hiding; this situation is sure to remain unchanged for a long time.
The city, having been under siege for the last four months lies, literally and figuratively, in ruins. Famine is commonplace and many citizens are quick to blame the new regime for their troubles. The resistance is said to be building up their forces, so say the rumours. And religious leaders are at odds as the new rule of law brings with it its own god.
While General Kerrak tries to maintain order in the city, rumours say the remnants of the old order are regrouping to strike back. This seems like a distant problem. At the moment, the General has more than his hands full with keeping the city standing.
And what about you? Will you join the Republic and help bring about a new age of peace? Or will you remain dutiful to your old King, and do your best to drive out the invaders? Or will you reap the benefits this moment of Chaos brings? What will you do?
This is semi-FFRP. I will allow players to do their own thing while controlling any NPC’s. I will keep all actions in mind to decide what the outcome will be. The Republic may indeed lose control of the city, should your actions cause enough unrest to make this happen. On the other hand, you could inspire an age of peace. So have fun with it.
Also, even though I am fairly sure I can do this on my own, I could certainly use someone willing to co-GM this thing. I have been reading a lot, and am fairly sure I know how things work. Still, I could use someone to help along.
I know this is quite ambitious, for someone with my post count, and I hope people won’t be deterred from joining because of it.
