About Knights of the Sky

In ancient times, the people of Odyssya lived under a tyrant. His council manipulated the arcane arts to keep the masses oppressed. Then, heroes discovered Alchemy and, with its power, challenged the monarchy....The world was torn asunder by magic, chaos, and war. From the ashes, two new powers emerged: the Empire, the survivors of the age-old families and traditional ways; and the Federation, the revolutionists seeking a new way of life. Now the players enter as Lords claiming territory for one of the two great factions of Odyssya.

It's up to the players to determine if the past will repeat itself, or if the future will include two realms built on peace and equality!
