The Tower Of Pazuzi is infamous in the region of Southern Carpathia. You are on the trail of an invaluable piece of history known as Pazuzu’s Trove – a collection of artefacts said to unlock the key to magical abilities. As you near your prize, you realise you are walking in the footsteps of the scholar Percival Thomas – now known as the powerful Magus Pazuzi. What echoes of the past affected his destiny? And which of these will also affect yours?
The Story is your own to tell, and your Character is yours to play.
The Carpathian Mountains hold secrets the rest of the world would scarcely wish to comprehend. Though the fear of witches and those who have made pacts with demons is rife throughout the Continent, there is a Tower which stands alone on Mount Negoiu where these practices are welcomed.
The English philosopher and student of Demonology, Percival Thomas, travelled to Southern Carpathia where he heard tell of the deeds of Erzbert Bathery and her ancestor Vlad the Impaler. Wishing to delve deeper into what drove their macabre behaviour, Thomas spent three years studying the people and the geography of Carpathia. In order to conceal his works he became an accomplished mountaineer and set up a dwelling at an undisclosed location at Mount Negoiu. Using his family’s considerable fortune, he paid for excavations at the Town of Balaci, where the wealth being poured into the region made him a hero to the people. Thomas also gained a loyal following among the Roma people, whom he found had an insight into that which he sought – the origins of the magical beliefs prevalent in the area. By the time Thomas made the discovery that would change his life forever, he already claimed the loyalty of hundreds. All who were aware of his discovery, two dozen of his most loyal followers were sworn to secrecy, and retreated to Thomas’ mountainous base of operations. Years passed, and there were no signs of Thomas or his followers returning. The Town of Balaci still flourished and honoured his memory, venerating Thomas as Saint Percival and ascribing knightly qualities to his endeavours. The established Catholic Church found this to be offensive twofold; firstly for the people to choose their own Saint, and secondly for a Town to receive life-changing investment. The Church declared Percival Thomas to be a heretic and launched a localised crusade to locate his hideout and bring him to trial. Thomas’ network of Roma spies relayed this information to him and his followers made ready their defenses.
For in the twenty that had passed, the Tower of Pazuzi had been constructed. The coming conflict was welcomed. The New Mesopotamians, the community who dwelled within the Tower were keen to test the artefacts and incantations found at the excavation of Balaci. Their leader, now known as Magus Pazuzi, despatched a runner to the Mayor of Balaci declaring that the man known as Percival Thomas lived no more, and gave a detailed description for the location of the Tower Of Pazuzi, to be burned after reading. The Mayor passed this information to the Church, then honoured the request to burn the letter. The Church in turn sent a company of two hundred and fifty soldiers into the mountains. They were never seen again.
The year is now 1702 and fifty years have passed since Magus Pazuzi sent word to Balaci. No contact has ever been attempted with the Tower Of Pazuzi since that time, and rumours of the fate of the soldiers and of the intentions of the New Mesopotamians vary in superstition. Some claim that they were ambushed and slain, indoctrinated by the Magus, or that they serve the New Mesopotamians as an undead army, loyal to the Magus and his High Priests.
