Lands of Tyrmor

Submitter: Anonymous
Description: The Holy Solidarity, the oligarchic government that has controlled the various states of Tyrmor for three millennia, is facing it's first true enemy. Not from without, but from within. The great psions are dying, and in their place are incompetent fools. The peasents are uprising, as they realize that they too can develop the amazing powers of their overlords. Led by the cunning and mysterious Lendu, the peasant forces are now thick in battle with the paid soldiers of the Solidarity's elite. Which side will you join--the peasants aching for freedom yet seem to have little chance, or the psions who have hoarded all the power at the expense of their sanity?
