Backstory
The port city of Pisa has been in decline ever since the naval Battle of Meloria in 1284 A.D., where a
Genoese fleet defeated the navy of Pisa, ending their trade dominance in the region. Today, there is a
war brewing with the neighboring city of Florence, and darker creatures lurk in the night outside the city
walls. Tensions between Florence and Pisa over trade issues came to the breaking point in 1315 and the
fierce battle of Monticatini was fought. Although Pisa destroyed the Florentine army, some of the
survivors grew evermore hateful. Bartolomeo di Cambio was one of these, obsessed with hatred for the
residents of Pisa. From a prominent family of bankers, he used his wealth to explore the forbidden arts
in search of a way to exact his revenge. Together, with his co-conspirators, his coven of witches strive to
destroy the city of Pisa. They have taken up residence in the dark alleyways and shadowy areas of the city.
These nine witches have finally succeeded in bringing a great plague to the city with their hexes and curses:
The Black Death. Now they wage a silent war against the city, and watch it die.
These are the names of the cultists, and they are all from prominent banker families of Florence:
Desiderio di Mozzi; Ernesto Peruzzi; Fabio Bardi; Gavino di Falconieri; Gino Cerci, and the
Alfani brothers: Luca, Nicolo, and Pietro.
