The Raven Wants What You Have

Monte as game master, Bruce as Savion, Darcy as The Cicatrix, Sean as Seru, and Shanna as In’Kalia

There’s almost nothing I’d rather do than run a game of Invisible Sun. We have so much fun playing together that we decided to record a short narrative of multiple sessions that shows characters advancing through their character arcs. Between each session, we recorded some of the game’s side scenes, which we call Development Mode, so you can watch every step of the game.

We call this narrative The Raven Wants What You Have, and as the story progresses, you’ll discover the secrets of the Girl From the Other Shore and follow a group of friends all across the city of Satyrine and even realms beyond. Our four characters include:

  • Seru, a Weaver who wants to craft a sword of magical glass
  • In’Kalia, a Maker who seeks the help of an organization called the Hendassa to help a friend trapped in Shadow
  • The Cicatrix, who is interested in advancing her own Order of Honed Thought
  • Savion, a Goetic who wants revenge on his wicked father who’s holed up in a demon-filled fortress beneath the Red Sun

These friends get caught up in the theft of a magical violin, break into a floating skyscraper, encounter an eternally dying god, and make their way to the realm of the Red Sun by way of a bloody and brutal competition in the Undersling. On the way, they conjure spirits and ghosts, craft their own magic items, learn arcane secrets, battle demons, and master spells and incantations that produce all manner of strange and wondrous effects. It’s a surreal and weird story full of twists and surprises—surprises for both players and GM—and you’ll get to watch it unfold right there at the table as it develops.
