The Balgrian Uprising of Midwessel


The Balgrians, a persecuted people, are fed up. They’re rising up and fighting and Midwessel will see bloodshed before it’s over.

The Balgrians were the perfect scapegoats.
The lowest of the low, the filth of the streets of Midwessel, the Balgrians were the foil for everything, the hated minority . They worshipped a foreign god, made iconic art! Folly, surely blasphemy, to the Midwesselites. They had white skin! White skin! No good person in Midwessel had a skin tone lighter than a golden brown! They ate the scraps of everyone else’s table, consumed fish and fowl! This two, was disgusting to the Midwesselites. They wore their hair LONG! FOETID IN THE EXTREME! So, what to do with these foreign, blasphemous, chicken and fish-eating, disgusting, long-haired, white-skinned people? Oppress them, of course! So had been the way for five centuries, and never was a stir of opposition heard. Who cut the purse of the neighbor’s boy? Surely not a Midwesselite, it must have been a Balgrian! Who scrawled vicious anti-Balgrian epithets and drawings all over the Balgrian quarter and Balgrian bazaar? No Midwesselite would have done such a thing, it must have been…A Balgrian! But no longer.
Riots in the streets, fighting with the Midwessel Kaiser’s Guard, and violent rebellion have characterized the past year, and now the Balgrian Revolution appears to be spreading beyond Midwessel’s capitol! Balgrian cotton pickers and peat diggers have tossed down their tools. Balgrian cowherds and stable-shovelers have stormed off!
When the constellation of Nastra, He of Lightning Hair, symbol of the struggle against oppresion, settles with the North Star for his eye, the castle of the Kaiser will be stormed by the Balgrians, promises the Balgrian Resistance.

A. The heroes are hired by the Kaiser to help put down the Balgrian Revolution
B. The heroes join the Balgrians

The Balgrians sound like hippies who got tired of being oppressed by the Rousingly written for the beginings of a civil upheaval and civil war.

 Even at the start, CP's writing style is great!

It seemed like a great place to camp. The clearing was good sized and sheltered from the wind. The brook just a few feet away. There is a natural hallow to keep the horses.

Then the night came.

It was like it became a different place. The temperature dropped. The wind, which does not seem to disturb cloth, almost cuts through you like an arctic wind. No one can sleep, as the soft ground has turned hard. The horses are uneasy. The Bats are flying over and stopping in the trees.

And then there is the eyes. There are glowing eyes just inside the tree line watching your group. The mages and clerics can detect nothing, but there is still something there.

(yet there is nothing at all... The Darkness will do nothing unless the players do something to it. And even then it will all seem to be a conincidence.)

Of course, in the morning, it all becomes sweet and light.
