Mysteries Of The Far Roofs

Mysteries of the Far Roofs

The Rats lived on the roofs of Fortitude for as long as you can remember. As long as your parents and grandparents can remember, even. They are a part of it. They belong here.
And they aren't only rats, but people, too.

Maybe you are one of them. Or maybe you're one of children that trained with them. Or maybe… you're not really related at all to the rats. But either way…
Something is calling. A great Mystery, one of the god-monsters that the Rats study and battle, awakens on the Far Roofs and you are destined to face it. To learn about it and the strange realm it inhabits. Maybe it is really a mystical force that compels you. Maybe it is a curse that forces you. Maybe you are trying to find something on the Far Roofs. Maybe you have some personal history with the Mystery in question.
Or maybe you are just tagging along, because it sounds like an awesome adventure.

What the reason might be, you arrived on the Roofs of Fortitude. You prepare for the quest. A small party forms… and you embark on a journey into the unknown.

This is a campaign set in Fortitude, mostly concerned with venturing onto the Far Roofs and questing against a Mystery, which is created by the players during play.


Whenever you do a Genre XP Action, you can declare that this action relates to the Mystery you are questing against. If the HG agrees, add an appropriate piece of information to the Book of Names entry of that Mystery and the HG awards a bonus XP.
