Introduction

There are thirteen named constellations in the sky over Tamriel. The three guardian signs, the Warrior, the Mage and the Thief, each protect three charges. The guardians and their charges correspond to the twelve months of the year. The thirteenth sign, The Serpent, has no guardian and no corresponding month, and moves around the sky, threatening the other signs.

Every character is born under a certain sign. To determine their sign, roll 1d6 and check the table that corresponds to the character’s class. If the roll is a 1, re-roll. If the roll is a 6, the character’s sign is The Serpent.
