The city of Coriolis is a jewel in the middle of the Waste Land. A beacon of civilisation, culture and good living. After all, there’s a reason why we are frequently assaulted by wild Nomads, eager to ransake our treasures and wonders.
But the most beautiful cities have their dark sides, and Coriolis is not an exception. The symbol of this ambivalence is our famous card game. It is a visual jewel carrying the symbols of the powers that share the administration of the city, but also the materials that make it up; wood, steel, crystal.
By the way, did you know this fact? If in the high society, the card game it seen as a pleasant pastime -sometimes accompanied by impressive bets, in the lower districts it is sometimes used as a weapon. When some wield a pistol or a dagger, others have developed a deadly discipline of card throwing, using their fearsome edges as razors. So, what kind of player are you going to be? A peaceful king, a dame of wisdom or a mercenary jack?
The choice is yours!
