Once more into the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead!
Our setting thus far;
In December 2057…
Dunklezahn has been assassinated. The country is in mourning and has been poring over the old wyrm’s will. In the confusion, an ancient evil gathered enough strength to trick someone into coming to it’s prison, a small stone cottage constructed like a cairn in Everett. It sprouted up there in a mana spike, though it’s many many centuries older than even the first recorded humans in the area…

Our group has been playing for about 3 years now off and on. I got an idea for an epic scale, grandiose sort of campaign that included bits and pieces of all the stuff I liked about Shadowrun. Large battles, espionage, legwork, clever player plans, etc. I plan on keeping some key canon events as well to keep the story grounded. I also happen to be lucky enough to have a co-GM who will help me with some scripted events, run a couple of rival factions alongside the PCs, and help to coordinate some of the more ambitious plans I have.
This is all done under Second Edition, with a smattering of houserules and borrowed bits from 1st and 3rd editions.
You can go ahead and jump to the Wiki now, or continue reading for all that legal mumbo jumbo and deserved thanks.
