The Many Fabulous Members of the Marquinette Ensemble

Adventure involving a musical troop of Marquin slaves who come across plans for the assassination of the King of Linderen. What the PCs don't know is that this is a plot to usher in the new Emperor, and the new age of Emperors, and overthrow the rule of Kings.

Adventure begins with PCs encountering an Edna fortune telling of a mysterious event in a note discovered in an old book. "The Emperor is Dead," it reads.

The content of the note is from the future, as slipped by the Edna, Quinti, from a nearby plane shift.



Water nymph. Hyper sexual race of fountain spring dwellers, usually of the Nymphen woods.

Naiades are able to travel through water of any kind and shape shift to make it through any crevice or hole. They mostly do magic and breed, as they are able to give birth without much pain, and their growth rate is only a few hours rather than years and years for other races.

Naiades are also able to generate magic through sex. Related to the Goldens, but not by decendancy or genetics: Goldens are Naiades who were turned undead through a lack of water or sex.

Dead Land

When a player opens up a portal, to teleport or travel to another plain or dimension, the in-between is by default a 'dead land' or dead version of the place they left, a plane or copy identical to it save a few things.

Note: it is important that the GM knows that Dead Lands are always basically identical to the immediate world, meaning the same point in space and time that the PC left, only with exception to the following:

GM rolls a 1d10 to determine what version of the dead land is active:

Magic in The Vesper Linder World

Magic is wild. Magic is like the wind, it runs all over the place. We are only beginning to understand it, and even then it changes course.

In other worlds, magic has a lot more structure. In the VL world, there really is no difference between spells and just pure magical ability, aside from the school of magic and its related logic. ie. books and verbal incantations.
