Rova 1, 4736

The forsaken lich Adivion Adrissant and his sinister plot to resurrect the spirit of The Whispering Tyrant Tar-Baphon, lay in ruins at the hands of Ramirez Saul, Haza of Sarenrae, and Torquemada of Iomedae. The trio stood triumphant on the unhallowed peak of Gallowspire, and as the swirling necromantic storm that had raged around the tower since they arrived began to break apart, and the undead hordes howled their ineffectual rage and fled before the coming light of the sun, they knew that their efforts had saved the world from one of its greatest threats.

Fall had come to Golarion once more, and the start of Rova heralded the autumn season’s beginning. The trees were just starting to change color, the nights had a touch of winter’s chill, and the day was growing short. Coming off a bountiful harvest season, it was a night of celebration for the Inquisitorial academy. Master Torquemada was hosting the return of his long-time friend, Haza, who had just returned from a year-long pilgrimage to his homeland of Osirion.

The newer students had heard tales of these celebrations, but were they true, or embellishments by those higher in the Order?
