Empire of Lightrune
The Empire of Lightrune has existed for three thousand years. Now, however, it may be on its last legs. A succession of Emperors, to boost their prestige and deflect internal opposition, have extended the Empire to the point that it can no longer maintain itself. Attempts to do so have bankrupted the Empire. The nobility have hastened the descent, diverting Imperial taxes to raise private armies with which to squabble with their neighbours. The Imperial Cult, the religion that had long supported the Lightrunic Throne, has finally received a challenger in the form of the Followers of the Tattoo, which promises a paradise on Earth upon the destruction of the Empire.
Can the Empire be saved? Or should it even be saved, in its current condition? Your character may decide the fate of millions.
