Czar Koloy III., named the Peaceless, reigns Both Realms since his fifteenth year of age. Shortly after the many territorial wars he fought at the Realms’ frontiers, a schism of the Realms’ religion, the Shard Stride, brings him to the brink of a civil war. The main God Perunkya, whose three faces look into the past, the present and the future, could have a fourth face, emanating at the back of his head: the face of eternity.
The Shard Strife begins in people’s hearts and rages on in villages, towns, and even the capital city, Stare Traha. But it’s not only belief: Black magic, politics and greed have their part in this war as well.
You are a Wolf, member of a pack, an infamous elite unit who does the Czar’s and the Czarina’s classified bidding.
Alchemy and the Magic of Black Words, Absinthe and Lesser Gods, Military and Muskets – experience adventures in a Baltic/Slavic fantasy setting for Fate Core inspired by the Napoleonic era and the Thirty Years’ War!
Eternal’s the Word of the Czar, as old and as true as the sky,
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die.
As the soldier who’s loading the musket, the Word guides him forward and back;
For the strength of the pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the pack.
