Alia Valebat

From 25-10-342 SKR to 25-12-343 SKR

This Era was a collection of stories that were spread out over a wider area and were not as interconnected as the previous Blood Trail Era. Most of them started from the Jistille Estates and centered around places in Drillian. At the end of this Era the group was caught up in Diplomatic Entanglements.

Feed Back & Recollections

I tried to create interesting adventures that focused on each character and use that premise to build a cohesive set of stories.

I started with She Said Yes! as a play on words and as a way to introduce a new environment for the characters. When they returned from that adventure I knew I wanted to work the stories around what the Players wanted for their characters. I started with training in Say it with Flowers to give a nice long story arc that there would undoubtedly be multiple things to start other stories off of. I then introduced the Athenĉum story to highlight a couple of the characters interactions with the new Queen.

Those interactions during Athenĉum lead to the Long live the King story arc for Indigo. To help make that adventure more special I separated out some of the characters and sent then on a separate adventure called The Enemy of my Enemy. That story dealt with Tristan Elaire where we explored some of the religious background in the campaign.
