On the Hunt
Each of you will be nearing completion of your time at the Roland Academy, either in the magus school or the martial school. This is the most prestigious finishing school on the continent of Menoris. That does not mean that you have to come from money, wealth, or influence…but you must have a reason for being there, and a reason for HOW you wound up there. It also means you’ll be relatively young and they will not have much field experience – i.e. no hardened war veterans (yet).
You can be any race and class but the age and schooling remain a restriction. Think of the beginning of the campaign as a sort of practicum that is necessary for graduation. In order to graduate you must complete a task, by any means necessary, with your entire group and then return safely. Any deaths (or failure) means all of you do not graduate and your time has been wasted. You will be shamed, probably made fun of…and so on and so forth.
