5E: Streets of Avalon
“The city. It’s this sprawling massive place, miles and miles across. Been here as long as anyone can remember. Nobles play their power games, guilds maneuver for money and influence, dark things emerge from the shadows to hunt, and the Lamplighters take everything in while keeping the darkness at bay. The thing I always wonder is, why? Why do those Lamplighters keep the darkness back? What investment do they have in Avalon? Why do they keep involving common folks in the games of the houses and guilds? I think they’re the true power in Avalon, but I’m only one person. Then again, I’ve spoken with a blasted Lamplighter. Have you?”—these were the last words anyone heard from Gormond Tully, member of the Brotherhood of Sanitary Excavators.
