The Offering

O Gods and Goddesses, if you know mercy then turn your eyes upon our suffering and show us the sin that sullies our hands. You who watch over the people of the long hill, show us the Offering that pleases you and let us renew our pact in blood. Our blood for the blood of our enemies, your peace for our victory in war. 
Show us the Offering.

The Offering is brought before the gods in a time after Troy and before Rome, but far away from great cities and immortal heroes. A dark age, as murky in our minds as the events of the fateful midsummer’s night that brought ruin upon the people of the long hill. 
The seven characters who sit in the Circle will piece together those moments under the watchful eye of the gods, to divine their sacred will and offer them a rightful sacrifice.
