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?

Tower out of Time

The Shifting City has been a key part of monoduga myths for generations; an ancient, mysterious city of strange-looking people that somehow continuously moved across the Frozen Desert.

However, the city went from 'myth' to 'history' overnight with the appearance of the Tower out of Time.

It appeared just outside Jolakefu from thin air, bringing a blast of icy winds from wherever it originated. The smooth, round stone architecture was different to anything in the heavily industrialised Jolakefu, and sand was pouring out of the windows and door frame and onto the surrounding greenery.

It was a simple, two-storey tower. The ground floor was filled with makeshift survival equipment and the recently deceased corpse of the adventurer Mukéye, who had gone missing roughly three years before the Tower's appearance.

The top floor was dedicated to a single piece of machinery. Alien runes and intricate carvings combined with monodugan cables and gears to create an intimidating monstrosity. Mukéye's Research Notes only ever referred to this machinery as 'The Engine', leading it to be colloquially referred to as the Mukéye Engine.
