Forward

Friday we get to move forward with this story. AJ has a basic world. We plan on posting a page for the Riva Contingency so you can check out the world lore stuff. We appreciate you sticking around while we got this set up. We hope to tell a decent story come Monday, but we have no idea where it’s going. Chapter 1 will be just getting the gang all together.

But let’s not languish anymore and introduce our last party member. Rosana. They are not based on any specific past character — someone completely new.


Rosana was new to Ashbourne. But Macabre Genesis was always their home. The guild spanned the known world, supplicants to the Raven Queen, but their dealings were less about soul snatching, and more about providing the Queen’s men with their desires. Everything from whores to weapons. 

And Rosana was just an artisan with whom the guild employed. Their machinations were renowned throughout the guild and their potions drew in even the most rich of patrons. There were rumors of a draft that could cure the malady that fell over the denizens of the Wellsorrow Region. The guild tasked Rosana with finding the source, replicate it for the guilds disposal and eliminate the source once they had the recipe.

Their only clue came from an anonymous source, a note written in Infernal as a childish rhyme.

There once was a boy held captive in a cell. He broke out and his dear old mother fell. To Ashbourne, he fled. A Boogle to be bled. For the addiction to be fed.
