Drake's Dozen

Revolution is coming

Industrial, magical, political; the dual-moon planet of Neyush is on the precipice of change.

People of many different species, reeling from the effects of the Great War almost two centuries ago, are accelerating into a new age, fueled by innovative discoveries and forgotten secrets. The event that ended the war and decimated an entire people is referred to as The Blink.

No-one knows how or why it happened, though many have theories.

Little fish, big pond

The Blink also brought change to the Dozen.

Empty metaphysical Spheres of existence, or the homes of unknowable, ancient gods? Opportunities for life-enhancing magitech, or eldritch traps waiting to ensnare the curious? Aspects of reality as normal as time and gravity, or complex creations of the Drake herself?

Whatever the Dozen truly are, something is different now. Something changed with the Blink. Something is coming to Neyush.

Are the secrets behind the Dozen the key to saving it, or the catalyst for its doom?

Chezrian Wheat


What it says on the tin

As the name suggests, Chezrian wheat is farmed across the south coast of Chezri, in the temperate coastal regions separated from the rest of the continent by deserts and savannahs.

It is oddly similar to Pfemban Wheat is many ways, from the taste to the colour to the ideal climate, but, as far as anyone can tell, they evolved entirely dependent of each other.

Travelling crops

Despite how well the wheat grows in this climate, the crop actually evolved in Chezri's fertile crescent, just to the south east. The tilkens of the area are world-famous for their sailing skills, enhanced by the ultra strong silk from the local Adolescent Silk Moths, but they have historically relied on root vegetables that prefer water-logged growing conditions.

Considering this, together with the inhospitable nature of most of the Chezri mainland, the large-scale farming of Chezrian wheat--which favours drier climates--is relatively recent.

A sea of wheat

These days, the farming community of south Chezri sprawls across almost the entire coast. Gok-Rock appears to have been the first bit of land colonised when tilkens finally set foot there with an eye to settling. To this day, it remains the largest settlement on the coast, home to the South Chezri Trading Company.

Trouble brewing and brewing and brewing

Unfortunately, a series of trading ships spread out across a long, thin area of workable coastline makes this wheat expensive to ship and an ideal target for nearby pirates.

Pirate attacks both drive the cost of security up, and increase the odds that your shipment will never reach its destination, pushing the cost of the wheat up even further and therefore making it even more valuable to those same pirates, until the value drops completely as consumers stop risking it, causing pirates stop bothering to steal it, and the cycle begins again.
