The known world is divided between seven empires – each ruled by a monarch holding a blade of extreme power and legend. Characters must navigate the political spheres of these seven empires and may face adventures in the untamed wilds or plot and intrigue in the coastal cities.
This is a sandbox style game using modified DD 3.5 rules. Additional rules from Unearthed Arcana will be used including: Generic Classes, Armor as DR, and Class Defense Bonuses. Also modified rules for crafting, item creation, and ritual magic will be used. This is an extremely low magic game setting however. Magic is real, exists, and is used by elites in society but most people only interact with it through superstition or the occasional hedge witch or wizard.
Though only Humans are allowed as a starting race, backrounds/professions will be used as well.
