It is the first day, of the first month, in the two-thousand, one hundred and twentieth year of the Ethaeria Common Calendar (y2120 ECC). In this dawning of a new century there is much change on the horizon. Recently discovered technologies have just become available. The Wardens, long time guardians of justice and order in Ethaeria still struggle under the Law of Atonement (which outlawed their order and put many of them to death).
Now, troubling news is beginning to spread from far in the southern frozen tundra – invasion! The petty squabbles between counties has been put on hold and a war council order in the northern capital of Faeradun. The question is two fold: What is going on in the south and what will the northern counties do in response?
That is were our chronicle begins. The characters are heading, for one reason or another, either to the High Council chambers or another location in Faeradun.
