Children of the Families


The city of Yoralaruk knows how to keep it’s secrets, and it has many to hide. It is up to the heroes to discover what the truth behind it’s darkest secret.

Lopash Atstapsu has been murdered. The Lopash Thief Family is in dissaray. The great Lopash criminal structure that brought Atstapsu to the top is crumbling beneath his corpse’s feet and the great Thief Families of the City of Yoralaruk are all grabbing for their slice of the pie in the chaos. Though the City’s innefectual government has long handed over the true power of rulership to the Families, they now scramble to regain their hold, thus bringing more confusion into the matter. Scapegoating and finger pointing have led to an all out war in the streets between the Families and the heroes have been dropped down into the middle of it. Hired to discover the truth behind Atstapsu’s death by Lopash Replet, the heir to the throne of the most powerful Family in Yoralaruk, they must investigate the other Families, infiltrating the crumbling Thief Family system to help Replet, the man with the most to lose.

-the Families of Yoralaruk are the Lopash, the Ketong, the Teruukoa, the Szaatu, the Oryltupo, and the mysterious Tah.
-Replet can pay the heroes handsomely, however, they must be willing to be ruthless and treacherous.
-Unbeknownst to the other Families, the true lord of the shadowy Tah Family is an ancient Violet (Radiation) Dragon.
-Yoralaruk is certainly not a place for the very moral character. Slavery is the unquestioned norm. The rule by the Families is the ignored but open secret. Drug trade is a huge part of the economy, as is prostitution.

Good one. A nice blend of politics and combat. It'd be great to get a player hooked on some powerfully addictive drug without their knowledge. Could lead to some interesting aftereffects.

Funny that the last post was 'this is one of my older ones' and that post is from 8 years ago :)

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
