Characters play members of the elusive and enigmatic Nacarajite revolutionary group, and have sworn to recover this powerful relic at all costs from the bloody hands of the infamous Imperial Inquisition.

Pregenerated characters are provided, and no experience is necessary. The Savage Worlds system is used, and is one of the simpler tabletop systems currently in wide use.
