Lady Raksha (a merchant prince and devotee of the goddess Quilina) has decided to hold a grand competition to find a new Bard after her last one left under mysterious circumstances.

She has requested that the best and brightest of Bards attend her event. The prize is substantial; a contract to entertain her and her family for three years. Three years is a lifetime to a travelling Bard. No hot sun on your back tramping through the deserts of Ahaan, no risking the slave markets of Nilsomar and no performing for pittance in the taverns of the Free Trader folk. Attending the festivities will be Lady Raksha’s family and selected guests. The Bards will have a chance to perform for up to 5 minutes for the assembled guests, and they can sing, recite poetry or limericks or tell stories of the world.

The competition has drawn the attention of many people in the local community and beyond. Many people know that all is not well in Raksha's household. There are stories that her children have not been entirely the same since they were kidnapped by the evil sorcerer Verdus and Raksha’s competitors are looking for any weakness to exploit.

This game is loosely set in the world of the role-playing game, Jaws of the Six Serpents. All world material will be provided in the character pack but if you are thinking of a Conan the Barbarian, Red Sonja, Beast Master type, sword, sandals and sorcery world, you are in the right place.

Some of the characters are magic users and you will also be able to call upon your deity of choice to assist you during the game.
