Under a Glass Moon
Rebirth’s dark age enters as the venomous serpent coils about his chain.
The throne of courage shall be lost until the dragon is broken and left insane.
With the shattered moon upon the mirror of hate, enmity’s harlot shall reign.
Only after blades pierce the sky and iron is made flesh shall the crimson queen be slain.
In blackest night, when death becomes life, revealed is the court arcane.
The aegis shall rise again with the sunless gate, its champions to slay life’s bane.

Chosen of Ioun
The Hibernal Festival. The week-long celebration marking the new year. All across Kavan you’ll find the masses brimming with holiday joy, exchanging gifts and embraces and reveling in the streets alongside parades. But in the north, another holiday is observed. A holier holiday. Xivus.
For Xivus, pigrims make their way into the Jade Forest, congregating in the small village of Hastow where, maintained by the Ereglast monks, an immense Ioun Stone spins in place, seemingly inactive. It’s said that the stone energizes with the twilight of the winter solstice, and those near may receive a revelation from the goddess of fate Ioun herself.
Fate will grasp these travelers by their very souls and propel a band of novice adventurers towards a noble end. Or ignoble, if they don’t watch their step! Monsters are afoot and the way rife with danger and magic, the path forward may be unclear… But where will is strong, there is a way! Lessons wait in the depths of darkness, and good must prevail. The journey starts now!

The World of Kavan
Kavan is a home-brewed dungeon punk setting with a focus on player freedom and moral quandaries. We combine the dark and gritty themes of intrigue, subterfuge, and dungeon crawling, forcing our characters to live in an unforgiving world whilst being tugged this way and that by the gods. Woven in are numerous pop references and humor to bring laughs even at the most grim of times, but make no mistake: in Kavan, failure is never rewarded and mistakes can be costly.
There’s more to life than just surviving… but… sometimes just surviving is all you get.
