War of the Burning Sky
The Adventure Begins
New Year’s Eve is normally a time for revelry and celebration. This frigid night, however, the streets are eerily quiet. An entire army is on the march for Gate Pass, and panic has spread throughout the city.
The citizens fear that they will not be able to resist the might of the Ragesian military. The city leaders are bowing under pressure and have barred exit from the city, intending to welcome the Inquisitors that come with the army in the hope that the Ragesians will reward their cooperation with mercy. Gate Pass has been neutral since the end of their last war some decades ago. That neutrality is about to be put to the test. The Ragesian army is nearly at Gate Pass’s doorstep, so time is short.
By now, every magic-user in Gate Pass knows of the Scourge. The Emperor of Ragesia is rumored to have died barely a month ago, and a witch named Leska has moved to cement herself as the next emperor of Ragesia. Leska, leader of the Ragesian Inquisitors, has decreed that all disloyal users of arcane magic are to be tracked down as potential threats to the empire.
