We are finished testing and tweaking the artifacts and specializations for the printing of the Avak'Shar cards. We are now incorporating 37 Prodigy KickStarter Backers into the background artifact stories. If you have not been contacted about your stories, names, and factional association please contact christopher at email@example.com. Subject Line: ST CHARACTER.
There WILL be a little spill-over into Legacy Speakers and Master levels as well, as there will be multiple characters per artifact background in many cases. If you are a legacy speaker then please consider the following and let Christopher know.
What name do you want to represent you in the world of serpent’s tongue:
What faction do you want to be associated with? There is going to be extensive documentation about the factions in the new upcoming website. Here is a VERY brief overview of the primary factions. (Note there are 9 sub factions as well; 3 per primary faction. )
Have most of the power but appear to be losing some of it now that the Age of Awakening has arrived. Conservative, holders of the sacred sites, trainers of new magi, inscribers of most of the inscriptions. Old Powers, government. Want to preserve and safeguard knowledge, in order to preserve and safeguard the Earth. They firmly believe that the Illuminators, let alone the Liberators threaten existence with their uncontrolled use of Magick, tearing cracks in reality, and allowing outer powers in. In many cases they are justified. Pedantic, but still hold most of the ‘keys to the kingdom’ so to speak.
Sub-Factions: Catholica, Archivists, Arx Novum.
Tinkerers, scientists, explorers, researchers. Want to spread knowledge, and advance it, even at the cost of lives or bringing discord into reality. Reckless, but usually well intentioned. (not always). They believe in the old auguries which predict that the age of conflict is coming, and if the earth is not ready the Illuminators believe it will fail and shatter in the tempering fires to come. Their experiments can be dangerous, but without expanding our knowledge base we are doomed anyway.
Sub-Factions: TechnoWeavers, Daughters of Eve, the Unseen College.
Revolutionaries, extremists. Want to overthrow every system they can. Anarchists. They see the collective belief structure of mankind, which is heavily controlled and influenced by the Keepers as self limiting and stunting their progress. They want to excel into total freedom, to become gods. And if they must tear down reality to build one where that is possible… so be it.
Sub-Factions: Disciples of Cain, The Lacuna, UnWeavers.
Let Christopher Know!

Hmmm.... which faction indeed? I think perhaps some kind of test may help to decide. To protect the universe, or to exploit its knowledge? The use the power of magic to fix what is broken, or preserve it for fear of breaking something that should remain intact?
