Crucifix will be the proof of concept campaign for my Roman Empire campaign setting. The setting will be totally self sufficient, and will use only its own races, classes, and items. If this campaign goes well I will work to expand the setting.
This specific game will focus on the rise Christianity in the Roman Empire. It takes place in 112 A.D. in the Province of Bithynia, where Emperor Trajan has sent a deputy governor, Pliny, to crack down on the rampant growth of Christianity. The players are members of a hidden sect of Christianity in eastern Bethina. The Trials has yet to reach that far, but the PCs know it is just a matter of time.
