The Moderatus System

By:

The Moderatus System was interdicted for a good reason.

Named after the systems ill-fated first explorer, few realize that the Moderatus Systems planets hide threats that few space explorers could imagine, much less understand.  Despite the systems status as an Interdicted Zone, renegades and lawless adventurers regularly evade the halfhearted interdiction patrols, drawn by the promise of alien artifacts and technologies.  Some few unfortunates find these things; some of them are even lucky enough to simply be killed.

Commander, were receiving radio-frequency signals from the first, third, and fourth planets in the system.  I cant make them out:  They dont conform to anything in our database.  Isnt this system supposed to be uninhabited?

The Moderatus System has two marginally habitable planets, each one bearing the signs of an advanced alien culture that inhabited the system eons before.  In addition to the two planets within the "life zone" of the star, five other planets and two asteroid belts are visible to sensors.

Ships entering the system will note several unusual features on their initial scans.

Great Magic and Ruination

With a huge number of sacrificial victims, another realm long ago secretly bound a Prince of the land spirits, Iorstonn by name, thus ensuring the fertility, and improving the magical defences, of their realm. But binding that Prince to one spot has disrupted the weather and magical patterns (ley lines?) over half the continent. Things have become bad enough that a coalition has been formed to rectify the situation, once divinations have established the cause.

Your party is one of the teams assembled to do the rectification: find the binding object and steal it ("so that we can destroy it here in our realm, of course"...*) or destroy it over there. Presumably the Prince will be grateful to his rescuers and angry at the binders, but with a greater spirit like Iorstonn one can never be sure: such beings are "tricksy".

* Of course, the rulers of our realm might want to control Iorstonn for their own ends...
