A Chain Five Ways
"We do the job in front of us. We take the coin, and we bury our doubts with our dead."
The life of a hired sword in the successor states of the old Empire is violent, brutish, and often, short. The Company of the Chain ply their skills in service of coin, not causes, and pride themselves on upholding the letter of the contract. In the wake of a rash and bloody campaign in the wilds of Gall, they travel to Ilrien, the richest and most dangerous of cities in this or any other age. Diminished, regrouping, the Chain plots its next move while trying their level best to navigate the alien politics of Ilrien.
Cats-paws, double-dealings, skullduggery, murder, and an old enemy bent on vengeance stand arrayed against them. The brothers of the Chain soldier on.
