9th blog entry - Campaign introduction idea, No.3

Here's another one:

It has been seventeen years since the Magnus clan, a group of the the most powerful spellcasters in the land, has overthrown the king and established Magocracy as the political system, with the Ang-Alahil-Manor as the supreme ruler, unequaled in the knowledge and spellwielding skill. The king, along with his whole family, and all of his closest associates and advisors, have been captured and sent throughout the land to be put behind the lock. Since that day, which is known as the "Day of Fire and Blood", the land has constantly been falling apart. Taxes have risen, unrest plagues the cities and the bands of robbers roam throughout the land untouched, terrorizing the people. All the funds, raised by tax-collectors, are now being used by the Magnus clan members to develop new and devastating spells, and Ang-Alahil-Manor hasn't been seen in public for the last 4 years. The people are suffering. The strict regime, conducted by the Magnus clan is quick to punish all those who dare to speak against it. Needless to say, the spellcasters working for the magocracy are present everywhere, and their numbers are rising with each day. Everyone who has even the least talent in wielding the spell is quickly recruited into the ranks of the clan.
You guys (characters) are members of a secret resistance organization, sworn to free the king and put him back onto the throne. The organization has no name, no permanent place of gathering, and no leader. It's members not necessarily know each other. It is a group of people, united, not under one banner, but under one goal. It is even known that inside the organization, many unique groups exist, and although they differ from each other, a common goal is what keeps them together.
On one warm summer night, you (characters), gather in a small cottage in a forest, not too far from one of the larger cities in the kingdom, to meet Akron, a member of a resistance group. After all the precations have beeen taken, and the comrade's identity confirmed by a unique password which only he could have known, you all sit and he quietly starts speaking: "There is a job that needs to be done...".

Hope you like it, see ya laterz ;)
