Ye Wiked and Ye Righteous
There are worlds where courageous heroes who stand for all that is good and righteous watch over populaces of decent folk who seek to enrich their own lives and better those of the people around them. This isn’t one of those worlds. The Old World is one of blood, pain, sacrifice, treachery, deceit, and malice. Many of the Empire’s “heroes: are dangerous rogues and blood spattered butchers. The people of the Old World are suspicious and insular, swift to believe the worst of others and slow to trust, often with good reason. Corruption is the rule, honesty the exception.
