12pm Phoenix: Dawn Command game. DM: Keith Baker

STORY: FIRST VERSE

The Dread began three years ago with the rise of the bone legions in the south. Since then it has spread across the known world, a waking nightmare that takes hundreds of horrible forms. Ghosts howl in the night. Skinchangers lurk in the wilds. Fallen soldiers rise to slaughter the living. Entire cities fall to a Chant that turns all who hear it into mindless killers. We don’t know why this is happening. We don’t know how to stop it. All that we know with certainty is that we are fighting a war and we are losing. Over a third of the Empire has been lost to the Dread, and each day brings new horrors.

In this dark time we have one hope: Phoenixes are returning. Every citizen knows tales of the Phoenixes, champions who can face death and return stronger than before. In the centuries following our brutal civil war the Phoenixes have become legends… and now you are one of them. Whoever you were in your first life, you have overcome the challenges of the Crucible and returned to the daylit world with the power to face the forces of the Dread. Go forth. Complete your mission, discover what you can of the enemy, and don’t place too high a value on your own life. Die well and you’ll return stronger than before. Just make certain to make each death -- and each life -- count.

Phoenix: Dawn Command is a new RPG from Keith Baker (Eberron, Gloom). For more information, go to Twogetherstudios.com. 

Characters: Shepherd (Durant Phoenix), Elegy (Shrouded Phoenix), Drake (Devoted Phoenix), Ash (Elemental Phoenix), Wolf (Bitter Phoenix)

(previous year's game)

 An EBERRON Adventure by Keith Baker

You’re all soldiers who served together in the Last War. Rusty was your commander. Badger handled recon, Smith was in charge of blowing things up, Wolf was the muscle, and Ember did her best to keep you all alive. You fought for the nation of Cyre, and you did a damn fine job of it… until you were betrayed, captured, and sent to a Karrnathi prisoner of war camp. The commander there was a man named Durgo ir’Durna, and he used you and your friends as fodder in his necromantic experiment. He drained your blood, sapped your life force, submitted you to paralyzation, mutilation, and far worse. Eventually you escaped, but you had to leave a lot of good people behind. And worse still: while you were in the camp, your homeland was destroyed and your people scattered.

 

There’s nothing you can do to bring back Cyre. But you can at least see that her enemies are brought to justice. Lord Durgo was convicted as a war criminal, but he escaped and disappeared. You’ve spent the last few years tracking fugitives, and you’ve finally found Durgo. He’s been hiding in Droaam, a nation of monsters. The people of this land include gnolls, ogres, trolls, goblins, and many more. It doesn’t recognize the laws of the Five Nations, and it’s become a haven for bandits and war criminals. You’re the outsiders here, so you’ll need to be careful. Durgo is in the border town of Graywall, in a place called the Labyrinth; this is like an inn, except the “rooms” are all part of a network of caves. Just finding him in that maze would be a challenge. However, Badger has a lead – a contact in the Labyrinth who’s willing to provide you with information. Sovereigns willing, tonight you will finally find Durgo ir’Durna.
