The Scape is my own personal setting. It has been in my head for years in some form or another. It wasn't until Open Legend emerged that I could open its gates and allow others to journey within.
One of the great peoples of my setting, a legendary figure named Brian emerged today from the creative swirls of my imagination. I wanted to honour someone who really managed to turn my year around. 2015, 16 and 17 have been like a sledgehammer to the face. This game, and this community have been a wonderful distraction. It was won me new focus, a new attitude and new friends.
On the continent of Szymeria, magic is ruled with an iron fist. No one is allowed to practice unsanctioned magic under pain of death or imprisonment. I needed an NPC to emerge from the wilderness, to lead a rebellion to restore magic to it's true nature. That NPC is called Brian. He hasn't arrived before my PC's yet, but he is on his way, gathering followers and preparing to restore the wonder of the Arcane to the land.
It's not much to those reading this maybe, but I just felt like sharing this on today of all days.
Stay awesome Open Legion.
