It's finally here. Praag - a vast city of intrigue, murder and sorcery, firmly divided in two, between the wizards and intellectuals of the old town, and the warriors and warlords of the new town. As rioting and murder grow, and the facade of peacefulness begins to crumble, it is clear that the city is ever edging closer to all out war.
But who will triumph in this conflict? Who's blood will be spilt? And will this battle of epic proportions pan out? All of that is entirely up to you...
Welcome, cardsmiths everywhere, to the fourth worldbuilder contest (new contest every seventh months).
Worldbuilder contests are a series of related challenges, where we try to create a story around the given map.
So, how it works is that first I'll post a card, along with a short bit of story to do with it, as well referencing where the card belongs on the plane (say, Slaughter Sqaure). The next contestant will have to create a new card leading off that card, and so on and so on. Additional Lore:
Although the city of Praag was once a small settlement in the very northern most reaches of the known lands, as war approached in the west, the area was quickly militarised, turning the town from an isolated village to a vast war-ready outpost. This angered the sorcerers of the old town, as anger bubbled between the warriors and foreigners who had emigrated to their town and the professors and magicians of the Grand Citadel.
The anger remained mostly under the surface however, thriving only in huddled crowds of drinkers in taverns and rings of gossip-mongers, all until the murder of a warrior by one of the senior elders of the old town. Now, as the old town close their gates, and urge their sympathisers in the merchant quarter to rebel against the immigrants, uncertainty is rampant, and war seems possible...
