The Deathless Man is dead.
The Comte de Saint-Germain, master of the Trinosophistick Arts, maker of the elixir of immortality, confidant of Kings and instructor of Magi, died in a cold stone chamber in Eckernförde Castle on the early morning of February 27, 1784. The castle servants searched and itemized his effects: a few clothes and linens, some razors and mirrors and similar gentleman’s accoutrements, a rusty sword, two pistols, and 41 Danish ducats. This devoted bibliophile left no books. This composer of tunes for Bach, this friend of Telemann and Handel left no violin and no sheet music. This man who could grow diamonds from jeweler’s rouge left no gems.
The Saint-Germain Legacy is a campaign frame for Mortal Coil written by Kenneth Hite. Someone has stolen the work of the Comte de Saint-Germain. Someone entered a ducal castle, guarded by servants human and inhuman. Someone managed to kill the Ascended Master, the True Immortal, in his place of greatest power and safety. Someone has stolen the Saint-Germain Legacy.
The Saint-Germain Legacy is a fully sketched out setting in the form of a detailed theme document, with all of the world set-up choices written out in detail. The frame is customizable by your game group. You choose a tone, and pick the magic level that is appropriate for your game.
Campaign frames are great ways to do a quick setup for Mortal Coil, and are ideal for playing a pick-up game or convention game. If your players really like the setting, the frame can be used for a longer term game as well. A campaign frame is also useful as a how-to on setting up a unique theme document of your own.
