Cittarovina, the City of Ruins draws artists, intellectuals, and fortune-seekers like gulls to trash. The relatively recent return of the Pontifex to the ancient seat of the Church of the Unconquered Sun has further spurred the opportunistic to flock to this most vibrant of cities.
The various noble families are involved in political and personal intrigues (although the lines get blurred), and their various underlings are often the game pieces. More and more, these powerful men and women are becoming interested in the treasures that can be unearthed from the ruins of the ancient pagan empire. Previously, such artifacts were regarded as wonderful art to be displayed or studied for its aesthetic value, but in recent years, this study has turned to the unexpected (and inexplicable) power that can be unleashed from these items, or "Arcana" as some scholars have dubbed them.
So, now, the race is on to uncover the lost treasures of the gods...
Into the Odd - beginning characters
If you begin the game with an Arcanum, I will tell you what it is.
Italianate naming conventions.
FLAILSNAILS, so once an adventure is concluded, PCs can travel to other games, and PCs from other rules can enter Cittarovina. To begin with, all characters are natives.
As the game is a Play-by-Post, you can post to the game thread as and when. I'd ask that you try to check at least once a day, and try to post at least every other day.
