The War for Luther's Prospect Campaign

The War for Luther's Prospect Campaign

Luther’s Prospect, a Domus Praeterita or Hemisphaerium Incognita, is a massive dome in the depths of the underhive. Found six years ago when Luther Barquentine, a prospector out of Dust Falls, excavated a mine cave and found the discovery of the century – an ancient portal leading to an expansive, seemingly uninhabited dome before him.. A haunting wilderness of ruined ancient towers and gaping tunnel entrances, an expansive and fetid sludge sea and a wild wilderness of dust and rust was illuminated by the ancient diurnal lights among a dark expanse of corroded adamantine sky. Powered by ancient generators still, the ancient lights encouraged all manner of weeds and fungi on which the variety of vicious fauna seemed to subsist.

Luther quickly spread word of the new dome throughout his trading routes of the Underhive and Hive City; in return, many bustling caravans arrived in the Prospect bringing with them settlers, green hivers and scum. Among them were many gangers hoping for fame and fortune in the expanse. Luther’s initial exploration site, close to the dome’s only known entrance, became the centre of Fort Portal, the first settlement of the dome.

About a year after its discovery, the Fort had become a busy frontier town composed of reactivated rusted machinery, ancient habblocks newly reoccupied, temporary housing, bars, merchants, docs under Luther’s gaze. However, many gangs arrived and the power struggles between several– the Escher ‘Prophets of Profit’, the Van Saar ‘Black Death’, the mutant mining family the ‘Sons of the Ascendant Star’ and the Cawdor ‘New Dawn’ among others – led Luther to try to quash the violent upstarts. However, the gangs proved too impressive a foe, and ultimately Luther fled the Fort into the wilderness of the Prospect.

Five years later, the Fort is now controlled by the Guilds and several House representatives, who contest the Badzones and emerging settlements of the Prospect through their gang proxies. Had they in fact used the gangs to push out Luther, a potential threat to their own power? What happened to Luther is not known. Maybe he still lives beyond the Fort, among the explorers, fugitives, ratskins, settlers, scum and scavvies that now roam the dome’s badzones….

You and your gang are one of the many upstart crews seeking to usurp or co-opt power in the Prospect. You might be a veteran of the original gang war or an explorer of the Dome, or one of the many recent explorers welcomed to the Prospect by the Guilds. Will you discover archaoetech, deposits of precious ore, lucrative fauna, or rare ghast? Will you pass into legend? Will you stand in rivers of blood? Or will you pass, a mouldering corpse gnawed on by rats and miliasaurs, little heard of and never cared for?
