THE SONG AT THE EDGE
(Cult, Temple, Acquisition, Distant Plane)
Tyramese, androgyne humanoid from the Cult of Sensation, seeks advancement by presenting the rest of the Sensates with a truly unique experience.
The research of Tyramese’s assitant, Lendara, revealed a possible location for Fair Ecthellium, a city built on the edge of a splintered reality, constructed to capture the song of the great void itself.
Lenadra set off to find Fair Ecthellium, but never returned. Now Tyramese seeks to send some hardy freebooters instead, to return with the song of the boid captured in a magickal recording stone.
-Fair Ecthellium is fabled and cursed. Many have sought it’s song and none have returned.
-Lendara was last seen entering a gate to the Astral Plane, believing Ecthellium lodged somewhere in its vastness.
-Guides and trackers familiar with the Astral Plane are around, but they’re a strange lot, even for Dis.
-The Cult is not without its internal divisions, and one of Tyramese’s rivals might make a counter-offer, or worse, to ensure they get the song first.
-If Ecthellium is indeed on the Astral Plane, that could be bad. Patrols of ruthless githyanki marines are still dealing with the last decades-long spawning of slaad that boiled onto the Astral Plane from the wilds of Limbo.
-Ecthellium, amphitheatre city on the edge of nowhere, could indeed be cursed. What has centuries of exposure to voidsong done to its citizens?
