Shaintar - A legend begins
A little teaser of what I am writing tonight – these are three of the Scions of the Starfather…
Branson – The Actor: Like his Mother, Branson crafted the arts of seduction and deception, and mastery of all aspects of truly becoming another entity became his life’s work. He worked throughout the Empire of the Starfather to undermine his father’s laws and authority, helping weaken the bonds of trust and functionality that made the Great Bureaucracy work. Legend has it he was buried in yet another role when the Spire was Shattered, and his whereabouts are unknown.
Cellia – The Sage: The collected knowledge and wisdom of the entire Empire was Cellia’s to gather and to curate. Her great tower was believed to be the grandest and most complete library in all existence; when the Mother’s forces came to raid it, she fought like a bear protecting cubs. In the end, the Sage’s Tower disappeared in a flash of incalculable energy; no one knows if it was destroyed, or transported elsewhere beyond the Veil.
Creel – The Engineer: Creel wanted nothing more than to embrace the future possibilities of both magic and technology, taking the creations of the Builders and others and reconfiguring the future in an image of his own design. When his Mother promised him that future, he put his extensive knowledge and vast array of weapons and tools at her disposal. At the time of the Shattering, he was entrenched somewhere in the island-sized city called Citadel, beyond the Mists from Shaintar.
