Cheliax: In the shadow of Devils.
The ancient and noble family of Hayne did not weather the death of Aroden well. Granted, they managed much better than the many noble houses that did not survive the rise of Thrune domination, but certainly not as well as those that better saw what was coming.
Flexibility and the subtle application of what little influence they had left have kept them from sinking into obscurity, or worse, but most of the name are resigned to a future of nostalgic yearnings. Most, but not all. A few of the younger scions are not content to reminisce upon the glory days while in their cups. Action must be taken to raise the name of Hayne once again to its lofty and rightful place. For years Samn has been making connections and seeking patronage, and his efforts have finally paid off, in a manner of speaking…
Now he must apply his family’s flexibility in an exposed frontier settlement. His only tools are his wits and magic; and a motley few deranged, broken or simple fellow travelers. There will be much work ahead, but he is confident that the ancient and noble house of Hayne will rise again.
