Hail Mighty Gamepodz Adventurers!
Two years ago, the Elector of Averland, Marius Leitdorf, was slain in the Third Battle of Black Fire Pass. Although he died a hero, Leitdorf had been known in his lifetime as the Mad Count and was as renowned for his melancholy, mania, and black rages as for his brilliance, wit, and skill with a sword. Furthermore, he left no clear successor, and so this is an uncertain time for Averland.
Into the midst of this conspiracy steps a small group of heroes. Their adventures will take them far to the north and into the heart of the Empire. They will be both catspaw and foil. They will be embroiled in politics and war. And they alone will save the Empire from its greatest enemy: the Enemy Within.
