Bellona is a strange place. It was once a great city, the cradle of civilization, but that time has long since passed. In fact, many have forgotten this city even exists. The city, though, holds secrets and many splendors of an ancient age. Small pockets of gangs, wanderers, families, scavengers and fortune seekers. A rudimentary social system functions in Bellona, with the 20 or so major groups keeping each other in check.
- It is claimed that the city holds within the secret to eternal life.
- The depths of the ruined library is reported to hold the formula for changing lead into gold.
- The god that was worshiped at the sacrificial altar is rumored to still walk the city streets.
- The gap between the living and the dead is threadbare in the city. It is said there is a way to travel to the gates of Hades in the city.
Your character has just heard of Bellona from someone they know, and is travelling there. In the comments below, give a one-two sentence descriptor of a person in Bellona your character knows. I’ll flesh them out as it fits with the story.
Post your character here. We will be using Abstract Dungeon for our ruleset for this play by post. I will be posting a new encounter or event each week on Sunday. We’ll roleplay through the encounter and then you guys will make a decision on what to do next.
