Eck's Zalted WA
I address you not only as your leader, but as your friend and ally in this time of strife. Not one among us stands [untouched/unvisited] by loss and death, yet still we persevere. The last victim of this contagion was claimed over a month ago, and I believe those who have survived are either immune to the disease of the foul pestilence has finally run its course.
I have consulted with my advisors [insert_PC_names_here]. We are in agreement that, whatever the reason, the danger of infection has passed. It is [my/our] belief that the elemental dragons have seen fit to spare us for their divine purpose.
I come to you now to declare that we cannot allow fear to keep us in our shell forever. It is time for us to rise from the ashes and begin anew, creating a new world for future generations. We will draw strength from the challenges we have and will overcome. Today we emerge and reclaim what is ours.

Addressing her people shortly after the Great Contagion
This is an Exalted 3rd Edition game set deep in the Scavenger Lands during the end of the Great Contagion. The PC’s are Heroic Mortals whose paths crossed due to these cataclysmic events. Temporarily putting their own plans on hold, they’ve made Severed Lotus their home and they are helping the survivors as best they can. Hopefully the PC’s will rise from the ashes to accomplish great things, but only time will tell.
This is a sandbox game so where the story goes will be largely up to the players. There is a predefined goal to help rebuild Severed Lotus, but we’ll see what the players choose to do. This will be the second time I’ve run this particular story arc so it will be interesting to see how the stories differ.
I can’t wait to see,
