“Parabola shifts. Alignments crumble. London enters the fray. Too far in to turn back. An invitation therefore. To one who has wandered deep in Parabola. War comes. Will you take up arms?”
A final rumble of thunder and you are soaked with rain. The sky clears. The storm departs, its invitation delivered.
Following the Election of the Viscountess of the Viric Jungle to the post of Lord Mayor, London has caught the attention of the competing powers of Parabola. War marches upon London’s dreams and old bargains return to haunt the dreamers. In the Is-Not, ancient powers conspire and extend their reach through the glass.
Players who have established a Base-Camp in Parabola will find themselves invited to take part in the Parabolan wars. Look for a storm in your Camp to begin…
Participating will allow you to establish a Grand Parabolan Company of your own, complete with cavalry, infantry, grenadiers, and, of course, munitions. You will also find a variety of Parabolan figures looking to advise you, or to enlist you in their pet cause.
With your Company you’ll be able to participate in a variety of campaigns, exploring the histories and allegiances of several major Parabolan factions and key figures. You’ll be able to explore different sides in the War without consequence and for your own reasons, but do be careful your reflection doesn’t get ideas of its own…
As your experience in the wars grows, you’ll unlock new campaigns, germinate Generals who can provide additional opportunities, and expand the theatre of war beyond Parabola, into London itself. You’ll also be able to experience Parabola responding to your actions, opening new opportunities depending on your allegiance, your choices during a campaign and the care (or lack thereof) you display when prosecuting a war.
The Parabolan Wars will also provide opportunities for you to increase your Dangerous and Shadowy Gains, to a maximum of Dangerous and Shadowy of 230.
Finally, we’ve introduced some changes to traversal in Parabola itself, removing action costs from moving within Parabola. We’ve also revised the Waswood to provide a smoother experience while navigating its waters.
We hope you’ll enjoy the new content added to Parabola, and invite you to join the wars to come…
