You come from the Grand Duchy of Zagora, once one of the Batrian Empire’s farthest provinces.
Imperial soldiers would use bodies of criminals to trap the gods of your people. Once a god took root in its host, the criminal was executed, bringing an end to the resident spirit. You were one such host.
An ancient nature spirit shared your body and lent you the power of its magic.
Days before your execution, the Zagoran governor received a missive from the Empress: every one of her legions were to return to the imperial capital. The legionnaires left. The governor fled. A fellow Zagoran freed you from captivity.
The spirit within you compels you to reclaim your homeland and rebuild its sacred places now. It whispers to you of a darkness that has swallowed the Empire and will soon turn its eyes to Zagora.
Is your favorite part of playing an RPG the dice-rolling? Got one of those fancy trays or a badass skull-castle dice tower that needs some love?
