Session One

This story begins in the Spring, arctic region in the North East. This land is called Jiset. This city is celebrating the end of the Eternal Winter. There are parades, feasts and other festivities. This tale begins as many have before it, three adventurers who do not know each other are about to embark on a quest that will take them throughout the region.

[ PLAYER NAME 1 ], you awaken in the upper floor of the Mount Inn. Please describe yourself. In your room, you see a bronze bathtub filled with warm water already. Also, there is a large cornucopia of meats and fruits set next to the bathtub for breakfast.

[ PLAYER NAME 2 ], as the bells toll for morning prayer, you have been practicing for hours already. Please describe yourself. You were able to pay entry into the nearby gym to practice before the sun rose. You continuously practice on a strict regimen to hone your skills.

And lastly, [ PLAYER NAME 3 ], you are awoken by a farmhand splashing water on your face. Please describe yourself. You are incredibly hungover and laying in a pig pen. As you come to, this farmhand is wildly yelling at you to get out from their pen. Soon after the sun has risen, you all make your way to the city center to take part in the Summer Celebration. You arrive at the city center and there are lots of vendors selling carnival games, vendors selling trinkets and feats of strength and luck.

Summer Celebration Events

Summer Celebration Vendors

As the night approaches, you see a large group congregating at the center of the square. They are all cheering and suddenly quiet. When you approach, you see a grizzled Dwarf Woman flanked by Elemental Guards. She has her hands raised and steps forward. “My friends, I want to thank you for all of your help during the Eternal Winter. We have prospered through your strength and diligence. This great city has only gotten stronger and I am proud of all of us in another Eternal Summer Celebration. When this Celebration ends, I promise each and every one of you that we will continue to be the strongest and most feared warriors in the region. As we continue to delve deeper into the Black Mountain, we are finding even more valuable resources such as the Amber that our city is known for. Stay strong, stay vigilant and stay faithful.” With that, the crowd erupts in cheers and then dissipates. Everyone begins to leave and you are alone in the square.

As you finally end up in the Mount Inn, the tavern is bustling with activity. Many of the citizens in there are laughing, yelling and having a glorious time. As you all sit down to get your first tankard of ale, the door swings open. The Lady of the Mountain walks in the door with her Elemental Guards. She sits down at the bar and is immediately rushed by many of the patrons. They all start singing and cheering upon her entry. The night revelries continue. Drinks flow and small tavern brawls begin but all in good fun.
