The Plot

"Oh what the Ancestors would say of what their children have wrought."
~Cyrus the Elder, Scholar of Duzahk

It is the year 4,151 Starfall of the Three Systems Era, and war is neverending.

The old Star Empire fell centuries ago and only the chaos remains. Within the cluster of stars known as Avalon, the remnants of the old Empire exist as a scattering of bickering Houses who compete in the unremitting politics of the "Sovereign Game". Yet, more than the Houses seek the Imperial Throne.

An ancient race of predators hides among the populace, while its own warring factions vie for what they call the Hidden Empire. Even more so are ravenous hordes of monsters lurking in the depths of space. To the astral south lies an invading army of religious zealotry demanding to unify all in the name of their mysterious gods.

Only a few constants exist in the Land in the Stars; an endless drama of War, Scheming, and Betrayal.

Previously on Land in the Stars
House Hormuz has defeated House Tyr in a War of Tribulation, and claimed the power of House Ascendant. This act challenges the status quo and the remaining Princes have called a gathering of the House Senate. Will House Hormuz be revoked, or will their claimant as the Princes of Rook be acknowledged? The Princes of Throne, House Durant, face their own trials as their power is challenged by the ancient House of Ishkur. With a lack of heirs to secure the succession the fate of the warrior family dances on a razor's edge. Meanwhile, the Princesses of Sentinel, House Amaterasu have ruled for seven consecutive generations. Now, their serenity is shattered as religious insurgents secret a rebellion across the holdings of their home system.

What will the House Senate reveal? Will the Sovereign game favor the standing order, or will anyone deny the write of Star-Crown and risk censure of the other Noble Houses.
