Numenera: Shadows of the Past
Shadows of the Past
The characters begin at Shallamas, City of Echoes, in Navarene. The citizens of the city are anxious, with tensions between Navarene and Draolis coming to a boil. A border conflict looks inevitable.
Both sides have sent soldiers to the Dark Hills to establish a foothold at the border, though neither campaign has been successful – the legions have gone missing.
En’ir Nashaki and his sister Aegan, small-time treasure hunters, are currently in town helping a merchant, Yogo retrieve a long-overdue caravan carrying valuable goods. On their travels north through the plains of Navarene, En’ir and Aegan are ambushed by bandits – the same ones responsible for the caravan’s disappearance. With the two of them severely outnumbered, they prepare themselves for their last fight, but are aided by Asher, a jack, and Tranavaros Syr, an Aeon Priest and nano.
After a gruelling skirmish, the band is victorious against the would-be raiders and set to return to Shallamas.
In the Dark Hills, Captain Maxxos Raven of the Navarene army and rogue jack Ay’lin have banded together after surviving a monstrous onslaught and struggle to send word to Navarene of a threat greater than any rival kingdom.
