If there’s one thing Valadon Synge has learned from his short lived companions, is that life is to be lived and women are to be loved. There is a time to fight, to take up arms and steel your nerve with resolve and solemnity, but also a time to rest and enjoy the embrace of beautiful women, living the tenets of his goddess, Calistria.

Is there more to life? The Brightness claims thus. A sacred destiny crafted for each and every elf that walks Golarion. A karmic imperative designed to ascend the soul to something greater than what this world offers.

True enlightenment.

This desert elf from Osirion will have none of that hokey existential mumbo jumbo guiding his fate, though.

No, he places his heart in the beliefs of the Unquenchable Fire and her Book of Joy. He finds comfort in the arms of her clergy, and a strong faith born of lust, revenge, and indulgence.

He set upon the waves with the Idle Djinni and her crew, and now finds himself occupied in the River Kingdoms, specifically, Pitax, determined to enjoy every ‘Church’ in every city that lies between these Kingdoms, and his next destination, Varisia.

But, uknown to Synge, a Black Blade born of malevolence stirs. It hungers for a hand to wield it, and a soul through which it can enact its dark plans.

Through the darkness, it calls out to Valadon…
