Fading Suns and Flaming Heresies
Welcome to Fading Suns
The Dark Between The Stars
Arc 2 of Fading Suns and Flaming Heresies.
Now you know the truth. Your Father sacrificed his name, his estate, his family, to find a way to protect humankind. He is a hero. An unsung, unknown hero. And now he is Gone. No one will really know what happened on Almathea, no one except you and your allies. And maybe the Emperor.
At least you have earned the status of Questing Knight, permitted by the Emperor to investigate threats to the Throne, and to Humanity in his name. Some recognition at last for a family that has always been the “viper” in the Royal Court. With your Retinue, and your new allies, you are about to set forth on the most important quest of all. The quest to save Mankind.
PLEASE make sure that your character is here on the site, and up to date before the End of February, to give JJ a chance to plan specific things ahead of the curve. He will be tweaking before Arc 2 Commences. Some things will improve, some things will be lost. There will be 6 months “unplayed time” between the return to the Known Worlds at the end of Arc 1, and the start of Arc 2. JJ is intending to write little intro’s for each character still in play (as in: up to date on here)
I have gotten most of the information I need to work on the updates. However, I am still needing to check Theurgic and Psychic abilities, and any “special combat skills” (such as parry, disarm etc). I have these for the Earl, Inquisitor Vila’Toth, Taranto Marina, Doctor Turk, Brother Battle, and Father Gregory. If Nanny Feyd has any of them, please let Me know ASAP.
* Stace – Turk Middlesworth, Gannock Doctor (Personal Physician) GM Tweaked 18/4/14
* NPC – Frank, Turk’s layabout and slightly lazy brother
* NPC – Nurse Vera, A nurse who has taken a professional shine to Turk
* *Lizzie – Rowan
* Simon – Father Gregory, Beloved Old Preist. Great Sermoniser. Updated 25/2/14
I Plan to start this arc sometime in Summer. Exact Date to be Confirmed.
