Exalted: Return of the Scarlet Empress

The Circle Adjoined

Tomb of 5 Corners

Roughly a year after their separate Exaltations, the Circle travelled to Nexus in search of the city of Hollow, a First Age location important in each of their vague memories.

.
Several of the members are of unusual appearance: Adamant, a Giant mutant; Tigelaar and Errindol, both in First Age powered armor; The Busty Babe of Gem, widely worshipped as a fertility diety; and Siobahn, a Known Anathema and pirate captain…only Lyncaeus escapes immediate notice. Thus, it is easy for the Circle to notice each other. Flashes of First Age memories lead them to recognize each other as past associates and then converse.
.
The Circle is approached by a mortal in the service of someone named Skybright, and dutifully delivers a scroll inviting them to meet him at the Tomb of 5 Corners nearby.
.
There they arrive to find him performing the systematic massacre of a group of over 200 bandits he had found squatting the tomb. Lyncaeus and Tigelaar manage to talk Skybright into sparing the remainder, once the bandit leader, the infamous Barrow Black, agrees to surrender.
.
Skybright had known of the tomb for some time, having come across it in his studies as an Embalmer Priest in Sijan; it had apparently been important to the Circle in the First Age. The Circle decides to investigate the tomb and find that it contains working Gates of Auspicious Passage, allowing quick travel to the tombs of the Solar members’ previous incarnations.
.
Exploring each in turn, the Circle locates yet another previous member; corrupted into an Abyssal called Mournful Dancer in Chains. She is accompanied by her Deathlord master, The Mask of Winters!
.
After both heartfelt entreaties and a desperate series of attacks, the Deathlord retreats. With Mournful in tow, the Circle retreats to the Tomb of 5 corners to decide what they will do next.
