The party returns from Port Albany after successfully Ratifying the Ascension of the new Baron of Esperance, Breyten, a highly successful trader from Port Fremantle. Your efforts to secure the Seal of Dominus Ian, the Supreme Justice of the Australs and Governing Arbiter vice-royal of all territories under the Protectorate were not without interesting developments in their own right, as you found yourself embroiled in the midst of a conspiracy involving two members of the Grand Lodge of Resonance, The body comprising those humans capable of manipulating reality by aid of a mysterious force known only as ‘The Logos’.
Something deeper lay beneath the conflict, but your new Koala companion, Cally, who was privy to the finer details by her own indenturehood to Raoul, one of the Resonants involved, insisted that you remained uninvolved and ignorant of those details, ostensibly for your own safety. Seeing no reason to disagree and with your hard-won prize in hand, you conceded to her advice. As you left the Port you were confronted by a Reptillian named Kessiah, a Pilbaran Blademistress, who advises that your impression on the Dominus was positive enough for him to send her along to ensure your safety.
Stopping at the small township of Mount Barker, you and your two Mamono companions were instrumental in retrieving a loose Rooster, one of the astonishingly rare and near-mindless Male mamono, yet unfortunately arriving too late to save the life of the apprentice to the Waylander who served as the township’s de facto mayor, who had fallen to its savagery. Now, you face the burden of having to bear that bad news to the Waylander…

(A CYOA I ran some time back on 8chan’s /monster/ board. Someone mentioned how much they enjoyed re-reading it recently and how it added detail to the Paxian era of my persistent universe. So, figured I’d clean it up a bit and post it as a story in its own right.)

You are Adam Gibson, a young man in his twentieth year. Today is the day you are marked as a Man and a Citizen. Your Father is a minor Landholder, having sworn an oath of fealty to a Baron. Your mother is officially unknown, as you are, like all humans, the product of the ritual human copulation known as the Rite of Continuance, and were raised to a teen within the communal nursery/school known as the Abbey of Blessed Innocence. You are the third son acknowledged by your household. Though you may remain here, it will be as little more than a simple labourer unless both of your elder brothers die. In other lands, you would be pledged to the Faith Militant, but here in the Australs, the punishing, dangerous island in the world’s southern hemisphere, known millennia ago as ‘Australia’, the sparse population offers you a greater chance for advancement and fortune.

John Walden, an economic refugee from the United States of America is taken in by his Australian uncle. Ostensibly occupied by some unknown military project, the task of looking after him falls to his cousin Kyle, a foul mouthed police officer. Taking the final year of High school is bad enough, worse when there are Mamono everywhere, but doing it with AUSTRALIAN Mamono? He’s in for an interesting year.
