The Balgrian Uprising of Midwessel

By:

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.

OPTIONS
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 man...man. Rousingly written for the beginings of a civil upheaval and civil war.

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

The city of Nausopol is built on stilts. Lots of very sturdy stilts and butresses, of course, because it rises about five hundred feet from the ocean. Even the most terrific of storms is only heard in the city as a distant cacophony of blasts as waves strike the solid stonework fathoms below. It has never been attacked because of its isolation and impregnability.

It's not a place for the faint-hearted: vertigo and sea-sickness are not desirable traits. But when you are standing in the middle of the city there is no way you could tell that you were standing above an ocean, separated only by a gulf of air and a few stones.

A thousand steps lead down from Nausopol to the floating docks. These docks are pitch-coated wooden and can be raised by winches during squalls. Trade with other cities and countries is good: Nausopol is built over a sunken atoll whose minerals are still mined by divers, and it was from this that it originally derived its wealth.

But the principal method of getting to and from the city is by riding the giant sea-eagles which have been captured and bred for that very reason.
