Hey all! As we get closer to this Saturday, I wanted to give you the reason your characters will start out together and the promise for the first chapter.

The campaign will take place some time after Cain’s first attack on Trinity (not the second one, featured in the standard ROT campaign). Trinity is rebuilding, and the guard alone doesn’t have the manpower to deal with the burgeoning criminal groups vying for control of Trinity’s underworld.

To combat this, the Trinity Guard is outsourcing some of its lesser duties to the common person. That’s you. Your characters will make up a small squad of civilians working for the guard. You can have whatever internal motivations you want for working for the guard (prestige, steal state secrets by serving the guard loyally for a time, etc.).

On the surface though, this “civilian service program” is about money. You’ll be accomplishing tasks for the guard, mundane ones at first, and potentially more meaningful ones as you prove your worth. If you accomplish your assigned tasks, you’re paid for your time and effort.

So that’s the premise, please keep it in mind for the tail end of your backstory. Make sure there’s a reason for you to be in the civilian service program. If the final line of your backstory is “and from that moment on James swore he would never serve organized government in any capacity at all ever for any reason”, then maybe you’ll have to adjust it slightly. Anyways, looking forward to Saturday!

Guys, I am ever so sorry but I'm not going to make this Saturday. It's my niece's birthday and she's only back home from University for the weekend. It's feasible I may be able to join late (like an hour+ late) but if traffic's bad that'll quickly disappear.

Apologies for letting you down :( will be back to normal next Sat.

Please someone do a Chronicle write-up *prays*

Hi,

I also can't make it tomorrow morning (1/5) as I have to take my mom to a Dr.'s appointment and then probably lunch afterwards. I could do Sunday sometime if there's any interest in that? Please let me know.

Thanks,
Corgano

Just in case anyone missed County's post in Discord - he's feeling pretty unwell and has had to cancel today's session. Hope you feel better soon my friend.

Serg made an excellent point at the end of the last session - what do our characters know about each other now they've been adventuring for a little while? We thought it might be a good idea to write a few lines on the subject for delivery to each other in the next session.
