Beyond the Tomb of Five Corners[edit]

An Exalted game run by Kuros that began with the published adventure 'Return to the Tomb of Five Corners'.

Introduction[edit]

The Circle came together almost six months ago, and you had Exalted several months before that. Guided by dreams, and seeming happenstance, all of you came together in the area around Nexus.

Your first adventure together was to hunt down and eliminate a large, well-organized group of bandits, led by the Barrow King, that had been robbing trade caravans coming south towards Nexus for months. Additionally, they had been extorting exhoribtant "protection" fees from surrounding villages, under threat of attacking the villages themselves.

Several of the most wealthy merchants of the smaller towns north of Nexus pooled their wealth, and hired you to eliminate the threat. They had no idea that you were Solars, and simply thought of you as a mercenaries.

The tracking of the bandits, and their destruction, took all of you several weeks to accomplish. Pleased beyond measure, the merchant group paid you in jade, and resumed their business.

Substantially wealthier, the Circle has returned to the city of Northeast Spoke to much cheering and fanfare.
