Campaign of the Month: September 2013
Located in the northwest corner of Barsaive, the city of Iopos is ruled by a powerful family of magicians called the Denairastas, who have held power since before the Scourge. Though their success at bringing the city through the Scourge earned the Denairastas the loyalty of most of Iopos’ population, the magicians continue to rule with an iron hand, arresting and often executing dissidents. The Denairastas subject outsiders to the same drastic measures as city residents; visitors to Iopos are advised to keep any comments about the city’s rulers to themselves. In the years since the opening of the kaers that followed the Scourge, the Denairastas have repeatedly vowed to defeat both Thera and Throal and claim control of Barsaive. With the recent assassination of King Varulus III, it appears they have put their plans into motion.
