Whispers in the Dark
September 16th, 2016
Below the horizons of the North American continent, the moon dips into the Earth’s shadow, creating a penumbral eclipse. Visible to all of Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia, the sun, Earth, and moon form a straight, yet imperfect alignment, creating a rather special full moon. It will be another four years before such an astronomical event will occur again, and in 2020, it will be visible from the Americas.
The form of a hunched and weathered old man gazes up at daylit skies, the throbbing in his bones tells him of events transpiring that he can not see, but is aware of all the same. Gaia quakes with the tremors of its awakening. An omen for good or ill? It has yet to be seen.
His call has been carried into the Wyld.
They will arrive soon to this little, out-of-the-way town of sudden and immense import. Each one called, connected, and brought with purpose and hope that together, they will be enough. A great Caern Shard has been discovered, and Gaia needs her children to defend it, nourish it, and grow from it.
What you know:
Depends on your backstories and character sheets. Get them to us.
For one reason or another, your character will arrive in Big Flats, NY. The may have a connection to the ‘old man’, or know someone who does. Perhaps they had a dream, a vision, or the Spirits told them where to go. How much you know, or don’t know, depends largely on your character. The STC would be happy to help you determine this reason if you’re stuck. If you have an idea – run it by us! We’re excited to see what you all come up with.
