The Land of Life and Death

Astesh is a land divided between the world of the living and the underworld of the dead. Religion believes that the dead are to be prepared for life eternal on the other side of the veil.

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.
