Kadisian Coup D’état
Khadisian Coup D’etat
Kadiz is led by Jacob Castellano. Commander Castellano took power by leading a military coup against an incompetent noble leadership and has been ruling Kadiz for thirty years. He is a popular man amongst the citizens of Kadiz and is considered a hero and a visionary. However, not all is as it appears to be. Castellano conducts many unsavory political transactions, usually involving furthering his own power at the expense of his people’s welfare. Forced labor, dark magical experiments, elimination of those who speak out against him, having women make him sandwiches – if its dirty, Jacob has probably rolled around in it a few times. He keeps this from the general public by extensive usage of propaganda and spies scattered throughout the kingdom. However, he can’t keep it from everybody. Those living on the outskirts of the kingdom have started to notice that people are disappearing, and rumors trace the disappearances back to Castellano’s army. There are also plenty out there who have become disillusioned with the current regime, be it through a bad experience with an “inquisitor”, rough treatment from the army, censorship by Castellano’s propagandists, or any of the gruesome misfortunes that await those Jacob takes an interest in. Some of these people have formed a secret rebel organization intent on taking Castellano down. This organization is currently biding its time just outside the edges of Kadiz, gathering information and looking for the right place and time to strike.
This is where you come in. You have been recruited by the leader of the rebel army, Valencia Ortega. Your reasons are your own – maybe you’re a street urchin looking for some excitement, a mercenary looking for some gold, or a former soldier looking to settle some old scores with those who did you wrong – but at the end of the day, only one thing matters: you’re the best at what you do. You and the rest of the team Valencia has assembled have been handpicked to accomplish tasks no ordinary group of soldiers could handle. Tomorrow you leave to meet the rest of your team and get your first assignment.
Welcome to Kadiz.
