Lord of Bondage and Pain
A Mysterious LetterNo one knows the details behind the war that lead to the end of the world, they just know that this is the world now.
Some say the Gods came down and fought alongside their chosen followers. Others say there were no Gods, that we're just trying to justify dooming our own people to an uncertain future.
My name is Cassandra, I'm certain of our future and yet no one in this city will listen. We're coming under attack from evil forces and we need to prepare.
I don't know how I plan to convince you, whoever you are reading this note, but I need you to have faith. I'm not a liar, believe that at the very least.
We need to save our home from invaders no matter the cost, I can pay handsomely.
I have seen artifacts, ancient magic, or something, that can prevent our destruction. I know it sounds crazy, but I need you to believe me.
No one will believe you when you tell them of your journey, but that's okay. I wouldn't believe you either.
The DetailsCassandra and The Liars is a post-apocalyptic fantasy story set in a future where humanity is picking up its pieces and hoping to bring back civilized society.
The road back to civilization has been marred by violence, superstition, and the unforgiving wilderness that holds dark secrets and even darker shadows for all manner of creature to lurk.
After spending a night searching ruins in that very wilderness, teenaged Cassandra finds herself consumed by light, only to awaken back home in the city of Troy.
With nary a scar or any indication that she was injured, Cassandra went about her days in Troy providing the people in her city solace through religion.
It wasn't long until she had a vision of her city, and others like it, being destroyed by invaders, the images burned into Cassandra's head and despite her best efforts no one would believe her warnings.
Written off as a madwoman, Cassandra sent a letter to various other towns, to mercenaries, to religious leaders, anyone willing to at least aid her even if they didn't believe her.
Anyone willing to take a chance and fight whatever evil was on it's way.
In this roleplay we'll be taking the roles of those who answered her call, be it out of duty, greed, or skepticism.
Cassandra and her party will set out in search of allies, weapons, and ancient artifacts scattered throughout the ruined world that can help them to fight the future.
But, can you really fight the future?
