Most of the info here relates to Mike's game, called "The Rass Game" after the family all the characters belong to, or "The Pavis Campaign" after the ancient, mostly ruined, perhaps resurgent desert city they live in. The game is a story now more than a decade old, following the Rass family from its dissolute past, fractured by one brother's scorn of the ancestors, to its dangerous, promising future as the leaders of the city. Along the way the newest members of the house have proven themselves by restoring their father to life, through great deeds in the Other Side and in battles both physical and magical.
In recognition of these victories, Will I Am, a strange proto-man who is at once all races and both sexes, has been recognized by the city priesthood as the Champion of Pavis.

And then sometimes we play pirates or the ignorant thanes of a backwoods clan mostly interested in stealing the neighbors' cattle.

To Watch

Everyone should watch The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus for insights into heroquesting.

A Pavic Prayer for Harmony and Peace

May faction, sedition forever flesh hungry,
civil disturbance, cycles of slaying
never bray in this city, its dust never gulp
the blood of its people,
the state get ripped open by rages of bloodgrudge,
a chainlink of murder.
Let the linking be love-bonds,
Common likes,
common hatreds,
A group bond against
The troubles men suffer
thus recalling paradise.

--The words of Pavis

Spirit Guidance and a walk in the Garden

Will I Am, Rasa and Speth sat down to discuss the world with the newly returned Cam. The shaman seemed generally agitated and of mixed mind about the state of the family and had quite a bit of direct instruction for everyone, including the need to wear an antelope horn tied to every family member's head.

The spirits interrupted with contrary direction, seemingly both agitated about getting the senior leadership out of the Manor and also telling Cam "NO!" about leaving. When Will ordered the gates opened, a bound bundle of four elf spear shafts were lying in the gateway. No guard had seen them delivered.
