Turning of the Seventh Moon
This is the Wiki for Unka Josh's Turning of the Seventh Moon Campaign
The Stralucitor Empire is strong, and highly developed culturally. Guided by the advice of the Astrologer's Guild, the emperor Dragomir shows every sign of reigning long and well. The City of Stralucitor itself is a wonder of beautiful statuary, golden palaces, and smooth streets, fabled for its poetry, scholars, and artwork.
Alas, the City is far distant.
Instead, you are here, in the town of Lugoj, on the outer edge of the Empire. Here, there are no golden palaces-- there are mountains, and troubling neighbors. (Still, there are scholars here as well, for it is said that Lugoj is the oldest city in the Empire. Nevertheless, to look at it, one can see why it isn't the capitol.)
There actually are many reasons to come here, of course. Merchants engage in trade with the mysterious land of Ctaris, land of the Necromancers. Guards are hired for these trips, as the nearby Orc caves are a danger. And Lugoj's age brings many scholars and mages, seeking secrets of the past...
...And then there is the official Imperial investigation underway. Rumors have it that a small village was entirely annihilated by an Orc raid, an unprecedented act of war! If not the Orcs, someone else must have done it, and so an investigation is underway... but troops for an escort into Orc lands cannot be spared, and so the investigation team must seek parties brave enough to escort them-- or ones who have their own reasons to go to that scene of death.
Will you go?
