Seven Against Cariele is a new Online Campaign designed for use with OpenRPG. It's based on the premise of Aeschylus' play Seven Against Thebes. Instead of a city state in Greece, the main antagonist is the Anuirean domain of Cariele. THIS IS NOT A PBEM! It is an Online, real time, campaign.

Mheallie BireonMheallie Bireon

Premise: Mheallie Bireon has gained absolute control of Cariele by use of sound and brilliant business and political strategy. She has gained the throne by killing and bullying all of her enemies into capitulating to her designs. She has destroyed the great Cariele family to the point that only three lines of that family currently exist. As a result, Mheallie has become a powerful force of economics in the Northern Marches. She controls many of the guilds around Dhoesone, the Five Peaks, Markazor, Tuarhievel, Thurazor, Tuornen, Alamie, Ghoere, and Mhoried.
The Twist: Mheallie Bireon has made powerful enemies. Daeric Dhoesone, Vertico Dhariel, Corbett Tuor, Shaene Mhoried, Clarice Isilviere, Alun Coeran, the Eyeless One, the Warlock and the PCs. Most of the NPCs listed all have forboding hatred towards Mheallie Bireon. The PCs are people who either hate Mheallie Bireon or are in her way and their domains are targeted for subversion in her own business like, no nonsense way.
The Climax: It's time to take Mheallie Bireon down. Permanently.

[top]Type of Campaign

the Seven takes the oaththe Seven takes the oath

This campaign is set up to be run in two styles. Common Heroes and Each to his Throne. As a common heroes campaign, the Players may take an official character from this list: Daeric Dhoesone, Corbett Tuor, Clarice Isilviere, and Vertico Dhariel. The other three operate as NPCs controlled by the DM. Sayerek the Warlock, for instance, has his own agenda and doesn't join the compact. The players play through various adventures against Mheallie Bireon's guilds in order reveal corruption and/or find a way to shut down the operations legally and paralegally.
The campaign takes on an air of the James Bond films. Instead of SPECTRE and Mi6's most resourceful operative 007, the feel of the campaign is set in Birthright and has the Birthright atmosphere. The idea is for the players to gain power through subterfuge and politics.
As an Each to His Throne campaign, the Players may create their own PCs and take a domain. Or they may use the NPCs listed. In any case, Power and Politics rule the day in this type of campaign. Domain turns are handled via PBeM ( like a declaration of War), while adventures are handled through the OpenRPG. Intrigue and politics rule the day in this campaign style. The Players take a player-controlled domain around Cariele and proceed to make a pact to destroy Mheallie Bireon and avenge the Cariele family. As if for nothing else but to keep their economic freedom from a ruthless business woman looking to create a monopoly of trade in all of Anuire.
