Trumps of Winter
Lokva is a fantasy Russia/Slavic themed land, set in the same world I use for my D&D campaigns. It has often been united under a single Grand Tsar, but at the time of the Trumps of Winter campaign, the last Grand Tsar is dead, the capital is largely a monster-haunted ruin, and a number of forces vie for the land’s destiny.
The Icons in this 13th Age game are the Trumps — each one a powerful lord or monster of some sort, who possesses one of the cards of the deck of many things. Each Trump fills the role an Icon would: they have their organizations and their goals, and players may be drawn into their intrigues.
