Legacy of the Phoenix

The world of Avern is in turmoil. Ever since the gods abandoned the world, things have been chaotic. Humans have come to rely on magic that is somewhat less powerful than the days before when the gods and goddesses were there to support them. Born into this world is the essence of the primordial Phoenix, the powerful creature that brought life to the world of Avern and created the gods so long ago. This essence is split into six pieces, carried by six mortals. The first to awaken to their power is the Dark Phoenix, the mother of the gods.
 

Follow the adventures of mortals and gods as they go across the world of Avern in an effort to bring back the lost gods. While on this mission, though, they have someone who is trying to stop them, someone in the dark that they cannot see. With Seers, Oracles, Wizards, and Vampires, the heroes set out to try and put an end to this ongoing chaos and bring back balance to the world.

Dark and the Sword

The world of Avern has moved on. It has been almost a thousand years since the day the entire pantheon disappeared. Since the Abandonment, the mortals have learned to live without gods and goddesses. The world became mundane, with little magic and even less hope. Tyrants have risen, and those able to wield what is left of magic are powerful. Forces surge in the darkness that threaten to topple the already fragile world. However, the plight of the world of Avern is not unknown, and those who watch from a distance have decided to intervene. The mortals are sleeping, however, unknowing that two great powers will soon be vying for control.

Then something happens that changes things. A young princess makes a bid for power by murdering her father. She then attempts to murder her sister, the crown princess of Lineria, Keiara. Despite a true strike aided by dark powers, Keiara doesn’t die. Instead, the strike pierces the barrier between her human soul and the soul sleeping within her, the soul of the Dark Phoenix. More than a goddess, the Dark Phoenix is the legendary mother of the gods. She is a part of the Eternal Phoenix that brought life to their world eons ago, one of the primal forces of the cosmos.

Air and the Crown

Even though the world of Avern has moved on, changes have been set in motion. It has been almost a thousand years since the Abandonment and disappearance of the gods and goddesses of the world, but the Eternal Phoenix has begun awakening. The first, Keiara, the Dark Phoenix, has gathered two groups of adventurers to release the first of the divine powers, the Keepers. Forces have imprisoned the Keeper of Life, Death, Magic, and in the dark. The Dark Phoenix, the Mother of Gods, has come to the world of Avern to release her children. Those she gathered split into two groups, each set out in a different direction to search for the imprisoned Keepers.

Sanna leads her group north, taking Jovan, Miira, Syera, and Elmlock with her. Together, they are on a mission to find the Crown of Life, the artifact they believe will free the Keeper of Life from captivity. To do so, though, they must first cross the frozen lands of Phomean and find someone to take them across the Pass of Solace to the home of the water-kin elves, Zeri T’ves. Of course, along the way, they will make new friends and perhaps new foes. ​

She knows she’s the Seer in Darkness, but is that all she is? Encounters test the group’s cohesion, and someone is out to make sure they don’t find the cloak and release the Keeper of Death.

On the heels of their recent success, Sanna is ready to tackle their next mission, which they believe is in the desert of the San T’shi. The Firekin elves are even less friendly to strangers than the waterkin elves from what the group learns as they travel south through the continent. Jovan wrestles with what he should do about his own homeland, and he continues to grow in affection for both Sanna and Essex. They are unsure what they will find in the desert, but when a strange person who is a member of a desert race only known as the “Wraiths” comes to their aid when they are attacked, they find that their mission may be more difficult than they ever imagined.

They make their way through Avern to the Seran jungle, where the ever-growing staff is supposed to be present. Myrstand learns a few staunch lessons in piety when presented with near-impossible decisions along the way. Keiara assures  him that his faith is not shaken by the truths that are revealed to them.

Light and the Litany

Together again, Keiara and the others celebrate their victories in a nearby town, unknowing of the very real danger creeping ever closer. They know they are not finished, but the entire group is exhausted. They desperately need a break. Avari has an incredible vision that rocks her to the very core and one that she does not reveal to the others yet. Her partners worry over her in the aftermath when she is bed ridden for several days. Keiara worries, knowing what has to have happened, but leaves it at that.

Meanwhile, the forces of the dark move on them, decimating the town, burning the entire place and killing nearly everyone in the night. The group can do nothing to save most of them, as they are locked in battle with equally powerful foes that threaten to bring an end to their next mission to find the Litany. Myrstand feels something is coming, and though he does not know what, he accepts that his fate may be coming to meet him soon.

Avari knows the future and she fears what she knows is coming. Even Lena cannot tell what is yet to be for them. Avari stands before perhaps the most important decision in all of Avern, and she does not know what to do. She cannot confide in the others, for if they know what she knows, they will change their actions, and may doom the entire world of Avern. She knows that the truth lies in something that does not exist: the Shadow Phoenix.

Keiara and Sanna plan where to go next, sure that together they can defeat any foe the dark throws at them. Avari watches them plan, already knowing what will come of it. It is what has to be, and she knows it, yet she still has to make the decision that will decide all their fates.
