Decia has historically been a land often invaded. As such it has become an amalgam of cultures and religions. Three major factions vie for power within the nation. A fragile peace has descended recently, but it can be broken with only a single shot.

Honor Cards For this campaign we’ll be using Honor Cards

Leveling We will be using a “Milestone” leveling system rather than an XP based one to help encourage the idea that fighting is not always going to be the best survival mechanism. Basically, every 3 adventures gets you another level. Missing a session will merely cost you an Honor card, not a level.
