In the void left in the Threshold by the political in-fighting in the Realm, an ancient power, long thought dormant, has returned. Men and women are coming into power and surviving long enough to learn how to use it. These are the Solars. Called Anathema by the official government and treated as demons by the official religion, they are, nevertheless, influential and gaining power in the Age of Sorrows.
You are one of these. A warrior or scholar, leader or diplomat, or perhaps just a sneaky bastard in the decline of civilization, you have been imbued with power from the Unconquered Sun, chief deity and ruler of the gods.
You have the power to make your mark on Creation itself.
You just have to survive long enough to do it.
Game Master: Me. Only me. And the voices in my head.
Number of Players: 3-5
Game Explanation: Independent Solars looking for power and on the run from the forces of the Realm. This will include RP-heavy scenes and combat-heavy sequences. Expect a wide variety of actions.
Application Process: Submit a character bio and hopeful caste. If you wish, include relevant combat ability. Applications will be completely open until November 10. After November 10, if I do not yet have three players, then I will take the first three players I get.
Character Creation Rules: First Edition Solars, using core book rules. Merits/Flaws from the Player's Guide are allowed, though some flaws may be disallowed as I consider them. If you wish for your character to have a Level 5 artifact, you'd best be prepared to offer some sort of explanation as to how you acquired such a world-changing power. The Gem of Incomparable Wellness does not exist. Don't ask for it.
Miscellaneous: Once the game starts, I will be checking the game thread at least once per day. I expect all players to post at least once every two days. Obviously, certain plot points will not advance until everyone has posted.
