Due to player turnover and players multiple wants and desires, my
campaign is no longer a straight and narrow br game, so my information will
be "tainted" by that.

I also have something similar to this going on, which I see as fairly
normal behavior for such unusual and powerful beings. The magian is the most
dangerous one so far, as not only is he dealing with the "real" world, but
also the shadow world. Being as immensely potent as he is, and magically
inclined, he can really go far. He has quite the setup in cerilia, and I
also have him being in aduria as well. The serpent is incredibly potent, but
is far more interested in achieving godhood than anything else currently. He
may (?) have a shot at this if things work his way. The raven is strictly
concentrating on his realm so far, with expansions plans in the making.
While he is more aware of the others than they realize, he is prioritizing,
as apparently he has the cold rider as a foe (for some unknown reason). The
gorgon is truly the greatest threat anuire faces, but he is hampered by the
growing successes of his adversaries (he particularly dislikes the raven for
some reason, and underestimates the serpent, who he considers deluded). The
magian and the gorgon have an unspoken agreement not to get in each other's
way, if possible. This can become more of an alliance as time passes, as
they are willing to work with each other. Both of them have agents searching
for several items of an ancient origin, and some of these agents are in the
shadow world looking for such. There has been contact with the forces of the
cold rider, but they have been hostile in nature.

What have you established so far? I can impart unto you some of my
ideas, but I do not want to waste anyone's time, nor bandwidth.

That is great news to hear! More br players! Has it been decided where
everyone will start and such? That would help in giving more specific

Not a problem (as if I was experienced here). This is a good list with
great people who have much information and knowledge. Enjoy what you can.
