03/31/2018 - A New Chapter Begins

It has been 18 months since the battle for the Crimson Throne. The invaders forces quickly melted away and in the aftermath of the battle, swift action was taken to secure rulership over Straven in the desperate attempt to stave off any further attacks from the Emporer's forces from the north.

Bralynn and her Chi'garé fled back to the south, boarded their ships and have not been seen since. It is rumored that some of the sea nomads remained behind, concealed their heritage and scattered throughout Straven.

Utilizing his reputation as a fair and just leader, Kellen easily assumed power and declared himself king. With his sorceress queen Elena at his side, and the mysterious disappearance of both Mathias and Jadzia (the de facto leadership from any other faction), there hadn't been any opposition. Those of the regency council that sruvived were given 24 hours to leave Portia, never to return under penalty of death. What was left of the Crimson Throne was destroyed in a bonfire of celebration that marked the start of the new king's lineage. Mysteriously, the large ruby that had been inset in the throne came up missing.

By new royal decree, Kellen disbanded all mercenary companies, including the King's Rangers. No longer would there be organized bands of warriors that were not under the command of the crown. Even the larger companies dissipated, including the infamous Falcon Company.

Eighteen months and the capitol city of Portia is still under repair from the short seige; however, most lives have returned to a semblance of normalcy. For the most part, the general public is pleased with their new king's rule and glad that there is a successor to the throne that doesn't have any hint of illegitimacy surrounding him.

So, with everything mending and seemingly under control, it is curious that a royal messenger would have been dispatched to find you and request your return to Portia to meet with his royal highness on a matter of importance to the realm.

DM: So, let me know what your character would have been doing for the past year and a half and I will put something together for you.
