The next campaign in the series, In the Steps of the Fathers begins both literally and figuratively in prison. The characters, all kept captive in converted monk cells in some ancient monastery slowly learn that they are not being evaluated for eventual inclusion in the Community of the Faithful, but are instead being kept as future sacrifices to appease the End Father. It is a core belief of their growing faith that sacrifices made during the Long Winter resulted in the Thaw, and that they, through their devotion have become a Chosen People.
Ostensibly set in the mountains along the border of Nascency, Jherlind, and Verelanar, In the Steps of the Fathers is a setting full of self-deterministic potential, and the compromises born of the need to survive. It is choice bound with action.
