Discovery & New Beginnings – Reading is a new frontier, and place to start again and make your mark on Awakened society.
Darkness, Paranoia, Emerging Power.
A chance to step in and take power and glory for yourselves. A chance to answer a question that has plagued the Diamond for an age. A chance to prove you can survive.
The Mysterium and the Guardians have long held an interest in Reading, and why the Brilu have fought so fiercly to repel any intrusion by the so-called Aynbri while not appearing to settle the area themselves. They’ve formed a cordon, and they’ve held fast since the Diamond first expanded into the Isles.
There’s nothing documented about the area, nothing particular documented in history which would explain the significance of Reading to the Brilu – and those that have attempted to talk and ask questions have been met with silence. Maybe there’s nothing, and it’s just so old, ‘barbarian’ superstition which drives the Brilu to keep their watch on Reading. Or maybe it’s something. Something big.
The Guardians and the Mysterium want to know.
They’ve sent small teams in, but until now few have come back, and those that do have no answers.
But things are changing. The Brilu have pulled back slightly, and as their cordon grows wider their numbers have become stretched. Gaps have appeared. First one team, and then another, have successfully made their way through – and once inside the natives seem unwilling to pursue them to drive them out again. Now Reading is becoming a new frontier for those willing to come and risk travel through the cordon, a place of new beginnings and discovery. A place where you have a chance to define the rules for yourself.
