N'wah's Iron Gods Campaign
The Technic League is a cabal of arcanists whose chief goal is the acquisition of personal and temporal power through the exploitation of magic and recovered alien technology. The Black Sovereign may be the ruler of Numeria, but the Technic League is the power behind the throne. The day that Kevoth-Kul proudly strode through the city of Starfall to claim the entire nation as his own, the League stood by, poised to ensnare him in their webs. Instead of defiance, the League offered the warlord submission and allegiance along with all the knowledge and power at their disposal and their aid in the guardianship of Starfall. Kevoth-Kul accepted their fealty and declared himself the new Black Sovereign of Numeria. Wasting no time, the Technic League introduced their monarch to all manner of intoxicating and mind-altering fluids that leak from Silver Mount. Now Kevoth-Kul reigns in a stupefied haze, and lounges in the debauched throes of his personal harem. So long as the Sovereign remains weak and entertained, the Technic League is free to do as it wishes.
The Technic League is based in Starfall, which is the closest city to Silver Mount and reasonably close to the northern Felldales (where a wealth of unrecovered technology awaits those who brave its dangers). Starfall is also home to the gearsmen, a small army of mysterious humanoid robots from Silver Mount that protect Starfall and enforce the Technic League’s orders—most of the time. The League’s authority doesn’t end at Starfall, however, as they maintain some presence in every city and large town in Numeria. In communities where their presence is less welcome—Iadenveigh, for example— they are known to install spies. They are also infamous for their tax collection, demanding a portion of all revenue—in the Black Sovereign’s name, of course.
