A Chapter of the Axial City Campaign Cycle
In the wake of a great war for the planes, the New City (which can be thought of as another take on Sigil) at the center of the Multiverse teems with life of all shapes and forms, and all the complications therein: Hope, Fear, Joy, Despair, Love, Hate, Generosity and Greed.
The Accordant, the police force of the New City, are ever-vigilant in their defense of the populace from threats such as invading armies, unthinkable monsters, and perhaps most significantly, the populace themselves.
Special Police Unit 36, created at the behest of the Faction Council, is comprised of police, military, university, and political representatives. Their mandate is to stem the massive amount of power that the Iron Ring slave trading organization has come to possess witihin this gargantuan metropolis. Easy enough in concept, but the New City is a Layer Cake of political, criminal, and social power structures composed of infinite shades of grey.
