The party had camped at the base of the volcano, much to... pretty much everyone's annoyance. The heat that radiated off the blacken stones, the ash that flew through the air and the constant, heavy stench of sulfur permeated every inch of this place, it was enough to turn the stomach of even the hardest of them and they had, unanimously, agreed to not bother attempting to eat supper. Despite the arguments again it, Trystan had assured them that the great volcano simply had to be explored, to imagine what wonders lay within, what mysteries waiting to be solved, what monster waited to be slain, what ancient entities may dwell within the belly of it... And he had the strangest compulsion to throw the eye into the heart of the volcano. As darkness descended on the camp, the small screams started. Distant at first, the trick of the wind, but it grew louder and would go silent at times. Far above them, on the dark mountain, they could see flashes of odd blue light here and there that would vanish as quickly as it appeared. With each flash, the screams would begin, and when the flash ended, so to would the screams. Even with Ren on guard, most in the party did not get much sleep as each scream sent shivers down their spines and gazes drawn back to the volcano to check to see how far the blue flame was from them.

As the sun crested the horizon, the party packed camp and began their accent up the mountain. Despite some apprehension as they waited for more screams, it did not happen. At least, not at first. As they climbed up roughly a fourth of the way, and oxygen became a bit thinner and the smell of sulfur stronger, the screams started again. Small, squeak like, almost childish. Dread flooded through their bodies as they scrambled and climbed to crest the edge to try and save whomever was being attacked only to see it.

A large hulking figure of metal, nearly eight feet tall and a body almost two as broad as Rokks, the figure moved with slow purpose, each heavy step seemed to almost shake the ground as small servos gave small whines and whirls, and to their side, the young Elijah leaned forward, the figure reflected in his glasses as he took it in, took in the shape of the armor, how it moved, the sounds it created, "Armor," he whispered, "That's armor-"

There was something inside then. Man, woman? Human? Orc? Some other creature?

Trystan started to raise up to speak but was quickly pulled back down by Ren as a chorus of small, excited squeals filled the air. Dozens of small reptilian humanoids charged at the metal behemoth, throwing small spears or even firing bolts of magical flames that did nothing besides glint and bounce of the metal hide, in a well practiced motion, the hulking figure lifted the large device in their hand and flicked a mechanism, blue flame burst from the tip and washed over the group of lizards. Screams of pain and terror erupted from their throats as scale blackened, as bone and muscle melted, as they were reduced to ash and cinder. The smell of burnt flesh filled the air, mixing with the rotten stench of the sulfur and turned their stomachs... One brave, or foolhardy, lizard creatures stood proudly, feathers in their headdress waving in the wind, "You will fall! The Holy Dragon shall rise! The Ffenics will return and the world will be renewed!"

The small creature seemed to puff out their chest as they spoke, their beady eyes filled with almost fanatic devotion that dared the behemoth to say something back, to dare refute the universal truth of the world. The figure slowly tilted its head as it examined the small creature, the weapon in their hand flicked on. Then off. Then on. Then off. Over and over, as if it was keeping pace with whatever thoughts were happening within that helm.

An echoed chorus of voices started to rise, and where once it looked like it had been solid rock, the slimmest of shadows could be made of an cave entrance, the small creature drew themselves up even taller, their chest puffed out so much now that Tam was sure iit was going to tip over and roll all the way down the volcano, "Yes! The legions of the holy dragon will bring you down!" it said as it almost hopped foot to foot as a small obsidian dagger appeared in their hands, "Your blood will be the first of the renewal!" It cried as it flung itself at the figure.

Shocking fast for something so large, its gauntleted hand shot out and grabbed the creature's head. The massive hand wrapping entirely around the lizard's face, snout and all. The small lizard let out a pained cry as it hacked and chopped at the armored wrist that held it but succeeded only in snapping their stone knife, small muffled shouts came from the lizard and the party had the oddest sense that the small creature was still speaking of the inevitable doom and death of this armored flame spewing monster. It carried the small creature to the entrance, pulled a small device from a small compartment in its waist released the lizards snout, "You will-" whatever it was about to say got cut off as the behemoth shoved the small device down its throat where it made it half way down before becoming lodged, the bulge visible even from where the party was. The creature pawed at its throat, tears forming in its beady eyes as the flow of oxygen was cut off. With almost contemptuous ease, the behemoth lifted the creature with one arm and flung it down the tunnel, the reptile disappearing into the dark surprised yelps broke out of the cavern as it seemed to have hit its mark. Silence fell for a second and then the world exploded. A loud boom echoed through the air as the ground under their feet trembled. The figure stared in the darkness.. as a wave of fire flooded out of the tunnel to bath the armored figure. Just as quick the flames come, did they leave, and the armored figure remained where it was, whisp of smoke seeming to trail off its armor as it stared into the darkness, its head, once more, tilted to the side and the weapon in its hand flicked on and off. On. Off.

"We should go, like, now," Tam whispered, this wasn't okay. This... That thing was creepy. Even Rokk wasn't that creepy. And how many more of those little creatures were there? And a 'Holy Dragon'? Was there a Dragon in the volcano? Sure, they had seen some when they were in the last city, but she had the faintest feeling that this dragon was probably a lot bigger and meaner then those.

"But its armor," Elijah whispered, the flames almost reflected off his glasses, "Imagine how it works.. And how does that weapon spew flames so far? What accelerant does it use? I've never seen a flame so blue before, and how did he pack so much incendiary power in that small gren-"

"Not now Elijah!" Tam hissed as she gave the skinny youth a shove, "Think later, leave now."

"I'm going to go talk to it," Trystan said as he pushed himself up and slid down the lip before Tam, or anyone, could grab him.

"Get back here!" Tam hissed, memories of a very similar event flashing in her mind, memories of a beach and insane weirdoes.

"It'll be okay," Trystan said with a smile that did not hold nearly as much confidence, "What is the worst thing that can happen?"

Trystan's Spellbook
Trystan spellbook grants Trystan 'Metamagic'. Once per turn, Trystan may opt to boost a spell with one of three Metamagics. Only one spell, per turn, my be boosted regardless of how many Trystan can use otherwise.

Extended - If a buff or hex, the spell's duration will last an additional 1 turn. If a damage spell, the range of the spell will increase by 1 hex.

Empowered - The 'effect' of the spell is empowered. Buffs and hexes will have their effects strengthen or may hit more targets while damage spells will do more damages or hit more targets. Effect varies based on spell.

Maximized - The spell will have the benefit of both Empowered and Extended.

When Extended or Empowered are picked, roll a D10. On a 1, the spell fails and Trystan takes 1 damage with no saves allowed. On a 2-3, the spell fails. On a 4+ the spell goes off. [10% chance to hurt him, 30% chance of spell failure] When Maximized is picked, roll a D10. On a 1-2, the spell fails and Trystan takes 1 damage with no saves allowed. On a 3-5, the spell fails. On a 6+ the spell goes off. [20% chance to hurt him, 50% chance of spell failure]

For Non-Trystan
If a character other then Trystan has the book, instead, each turn they may randomly roll 3 spells from the known spell list that Trystan acquired. They may then select one of those randomized spells to cast for free. The magic and knowledge comes from the book, itself, so anyone, even those without magic are capable of using this ability. If the character that has the book is a magic user, they may undergo a quest chain to fully unlock all spells Trystan had recorded as well as unlock the ability to metamagic them as if they were Trystan.

Silver Mirror
This beautifully crafted hand mirror is a unique magical artifact allowing people to converse over any distance. All someone must do is go to any mirror, or suitably reflected surface, speak the name of the owner with the intent of speaking with them. The mirror will then mentally 'alert' the owner that someone is wishing to speak to them as well as who they are. If the user does not wish to speak to them, the 'call' will not go through leaving the caller stuck staring at themselves. If the user does wish to speak to them, they must merely pull out the mirror and face it. The mirrored surfaces will be replaced with the image of the other person and they are free to communicate as if they were standing right before one another.

Eye of Pandora

Advancements
Advancement - Side Jobs
Trystan Galvingar is not above taking small jobs like janitorial duties, errand boy or slaying large rats in basements to earn a bit of money. If he is on a tile with a non-hostile settlement, he can use actions to take odd jobs to gain resources. More actions he uses, more resources he can gain.

Advancement - Extra Credit

[Feel free to change what these do, the cost, etc, for balance purposes]. All items are consumed upon use.

Advancement - I can't carry it, but I can carry you
As long as Ren is alive, the party ignores movement penalties

Advancement: Lazarus Pit
The party can bring back any character so long as they have body [or most of it]. For members of Trystan's party, it will cost 10xT [Where T is the amount of turns the unit has been dead] in resources. If he is bringing back a character from another faction, either to try to bring them to his party or bring them back as a service, the price will be decided by Trek [May cost resources, may cost resources and consume the power of an artifact, may require a quest, etc].

They can only bring back mechanical characters if Elijah is alive. [They can only bring back organic if Trystan is alive, but if he dies the party disbands anyways]


Spellbook
Reflection [Spell Action/Passive? (Not actually sure)]
During Battle if attacked by a ranged or magic spell, roll a d10. On an 8+, the attack is reflected back to the unit that sent it, giving them the full damage of their own attack.

Combat spells, and consumables, used by Trystan are treated at +1 Initiative. Campaign spells always happen before any movement, spells or actions are taken by other factions. [The restriction to Trystan using spells, or teleport, to escape an enemy moving onto his space still applies].

We Will Be Remembered!
Before every battle [not adventure], Trystan can give a speech to his party and allied forces. This speech must be written out and posted in the fluff of the post for it to work. This speech may give a buff to friendly units, may apply a negative to friendly units, may apply a negative to enemy forces or can even give enemy forces a buff. The exact outcome of the speech is decided on by Trek as well as what modifiers, if any, it grants. The modifier last for the battle. Only one speech, per battle, can be given.

Birth of Nations: Act 2: Age of Colonialism


The foothold now carefully established and the army settled in, it was now time for The General to begin his movements. He sent word to the other two commanders of the landed forces to begin their preparations to march.

Upon interacting with the other nations that have landed here, either they will submit to Fafrium rule, or they will be crushed under heel. There will be no middle ground.

Their forces are ready, willing, and able to crush those that stand in the way of Fafrium Superiority.


Clan Spike Horde

Chieftain Mahk stood on the ramparts overlooking the training yard. His people were warriors, he was a warrior, but even still, he enjoyed the peace that they had managed to eke out after The Mabinogi had almost wiped them out. And he was determined to make sure that an incident was not going to hit their lands once more.

If these Fafrium Warriors believe that they would wipe out Clan Spike Horde, they would have another thing coming.

He watched the Boar Riders practicing their charge routines. Against both practice dummies, each other and even other Orc Warriors on foot. Anything to prepare themselves for the most likely scenario, a bloodbath of war.

Actions: Train 3 Dire Boar Riders

9 Orc Warriors , 5 Orc Catapult, 6 Dire Boar Rider


—-----------------------

Ogre Nation

Tiny laughed as he looked at the map. What was left of the Collective had fled to the South to where their allies lived. It was a pitiful display. If they could not face them in the field of battle, all they were doing was delaying the inevitable.

Their friends would not help them stay the line. Their friends would only fall as all shall fall before the might that is the Ogre Nation.

The Giant Ogre took another handful of pudding, enough that would fit in a tub and stuffed it into his mouth. The technology they acquired from Straed would help them go far and conquer all that lay before them.

Once they crushed their foes in the south, they’d go and crush those invaders from the East that he keeps hearing word about.


—-------------------------------

Penumbra

General Pavlova swung her poleaxe down hard into a large rock, shattering it into thousands of tiny little pieces. Her anger was palpable with her swing.

“How dare they defy us!”

Another swing and another large rock destroyed into tiny shards. The lack of action was tantamount to a betrayal. Actions always shown louder than words.

“Those mushrooms shall rue the day that they defied The Goddess! Ready the Armies! We ride south to eliminate the Mushroom menace and then we shall infect those to the North as per the word of the Goddess!”

The soldiers clad in armor saluted across their chest, making a clanking noise as they responded in the affirmative.

The time has come for them to strike and strike hard.

They will spread the glory of The Goddess. And without the Mushroom people that give platitudes without honesty.


—------------------------------


The Fafrium Empire


A report came across the desk of The General. It detailed that everything was fine on the front of The Northern Forces and that they have already begun to deal with the natives of The Trolls.

The fighting is fierce, but no more difficult than expected as per their scouts information.

The cultist that penned the letter laughed. By the time that Fafrium realized that their forces to the North were already corrupted, it would be far too late.

The Academy

A letter arrived from the Northern Fafrium forces that they would respect the sovereignty and neutrality of The Academy as long as they did not get involved with any of the fighting against The Fafrium Empire.

A far reasonable request and one that they as an institution of Higher Learning are prepared to abide by.

—--------------------------------
The Auctioneer placed his thin bony hands behind his back as he looked at all that he had acquired from the auctions. A wisp of a smile appeared on his thin lips. The wonders would never cease to amaze or torment.

  • Research Advancement: Joint Lubrication: When a "rusty joints" effect is rolled, roll a d10. On a 2, the effect continues as normal. Otherwise, roll on the Random Access Memory table again. This effect triggers any time a "rusty joints" effect is rolled.​

The Gobbos

-Advancement: Da Portal - A network or large, circular rings that can be used to instantly teleport
from one place to another. There are no moving parts and no magic, just that old Goblin belief that
they work, makes them work.
May create a portal on a hex, populated or otherwise, for one action at a cost of 100 resources.
When on a hex with a portal, a Goblin army counts as being on each portal hex for the purposes of
movement. Must be a minimum of 10 Da Bad Moon Goblins in any army wishing to use a portal
otherwise it doesn't work. Portals may only be destroyed by enemies of the Goblins and to do so
much roll an 8+ at the start of a turn while on the hex. This represents finding the portal in such a
vast space rather than an inability to destroy it. Cannot be built if engaged in combat.

-Advancement: Orlov's Toolkit - Orlov has proven himself to be a most useful friend to the Gobbo's.
Even after wars between their people's, the dwarf has settled in well and is making some
immediate impacts.

Each turn roll a D10 for each magic item that has a declared weakness. On a 10 the item loses its
weakness. Equipped items are unaffected unless Orlov is with the bearers army.

-Advancement: Shrooms of The Growth - The Growth has proven to be extremely beneficial and it is
clear that it ties in with the Mother Shroom they found previously near one of their settlements.
While at some point the Gobbo's changed to be more humanoid than the Flessi, they are clearly of
the same ancestors. The sharing of knowledge has resulted in some exciting developments.
Each turn roll a D10 and consult the table below:
● 1-4: Nothing Happens
● 5-8: Gain a single use item
● 9: Gain a standard Magic Item
● 10: Gain a Magic Item with no weakness
● 11+: Extreme Mutation: Gain a hero


Explore: While exploring, The Gobbos came across a large pit trap. Instead of simply disabling it and moving on, they made a game out of jumping over it. IN the end, many lives were lost, but they had a great time. Loss 3 Units

The Hammer of Mekhane: HER LIVING VOICE smites followers of THE FLESH with divine fury, bring down the righteous hammer of HER upon them. The Shepherd Bumaro gains +3 Offense and deals +2 damage to units that are in anyway magical, plant/fungal related, are beasts, or are from a nation that worships nature or spirits, but is unable to damage mechanical units that do not have any of the above traits. To units that are not mechanical but share none of the above traits, the attacks use the normal stat line.

Mechanical Perfection: The Shepherd Bumaro is the purest form of being- for they are one with the Blessed Machine. This grants them unparalleled intellect, durability and strength that no being of FLESH can hope to obtain. The Shepherd Bumaro has a 6+ save against taking damage, that cannot be improved by any means, and grants other units in his army a 9+ save (or improved there current save by 1)

Aspect of the Divine Machine: may incorporate pieces of Mekhane into their being to gain new abilities and benefits, up to GM discretion. When this unit is killed, all of the pieces including its own DIVINE ASPECT can be retrieved by the victor of the battle. (The DIVINE ASPECT imbues a HERO with the statline of The Shepherd Bumaro).

Visage of Mekhane: Allows 3 rerolls in combat and exploration.

These pieces of MEKHANE merge to become a part of The Shepherd, slowly transforming Them into the DIVINE MACHINE. Thus, their stats are permanently increased.

More and more war preparation was commencing as both Clockwork Legions moved to merge at The Anvil. They were mustering even as Warmaster Otherion departed to join them. THey would have to march north soon to see what has become of things there even as Finley Station continued to discreetly produce forces for the new defense legion being formed.

Runcible looked over his reports even as he received news that the other settlements were in the final stages of expansion. That was a relief as it would open up their support for more forces along with providing even more needed materials. He then sighs as he looks at the paper he was about to pen and dispatch on a ship bound back for Greater Titania after it offloaded its latest batch of exiles. He grabs a quill and being to reluctantly write.
---
To her Imperial Majesty, Empress Bethzane of House Reo, Queen of the Five Holds, Protector of the Elf Glades, Dwarf-Friend of Kagakraza, Goblin Tamer of the Vestine Wastes

I regret to inform your Imperial Highness that there may be complications in our ongoing efforts to honor the Treaty of Exile. Understand that I have no desire to disrupt this as it keeps the peace between our lands while allowing you to more peacefully remove unwanted elements challenging the rule of the Royal Court. The influx of population is always welcome and we continue to extend the offer of trade should your Imperial Highness so desire to accepts it.

The issue stands more that the Empire of Fafrium has landed a full scale invasion expedition on this continent and we will be attempting to maintain our sovereignty. We will not and never turn away your ships, but our ability to receive them could be potentially disrupted. We will do our best to avoid this so as to maintain our agreement with Greater Titania and your Imperial Highness. You know well I would not write to make excuse and that I do not bandy about words. This is simply a dispatch I feel a duty to send to you as a holder of a treaty that is of importance to us both.

May you continue to find peace in your reign,
Runcible Thorpe
Overseer of Coghaven

Lady Genmei had been hard at work, looking over papers and notarising documents, feeling a renewed sense of duty after her period of sullen swithering. While the backlog wasn't massive, the Golden Treasurer far too efficient in her work, her absent mindedness in recent months clawed away at her, making Lady Genmei more scrutinising with the latest batch of reports. Placing the seal back in to the caramel coloured clay, the Lady took a quick stretch, raising her hands behind her as she extended her back, the long sleeves of her golden robe falling low as she stretched.

The Golden Treasurer had worked through the night to finish the latest batch of papers, but she didn't feel tired at all. The opposite in fact. It seemed that diving back into her work had been the kick she needed to clear her mind. And with that clarity came an adamant and decisive decision of what she would do when she next saw the Prince.

She looked to the rose on her desk, vibrant and thriving in it's vase. Before she could pine after him, Lady Genmei quickly got back to work, perusing and studying the next agenda on her list.

Something caught her eye as she scoured the documentation on military spending. While the upkeep for their forces seemed to rise higher and higher in recent months without any evidence of additional recruitment or training, all the papers outwardly bore the royal seal in crimson wax.

Perhaps the Red Mother was tending too and nurturing the Army as was her role. Never had one who held the title, like Queen Wu, marched alongside her forces and even into battle. But the Queen had always been a progressive and forward thinking woman, something that got her in trouble from time to time in their homeland.

At least, according to the older, more senior members of the Treasury. Lady Genmei, however, still held the Red Mother in high regard. Still, it would not be fair or even prudent to not examine the situation further..

Turning her gaze to the reports of new births and recent deaths, amongst them a plethora of new Rock Hunters, she looked on with greater vigilance, licking her thumb as she went through everything...

Trystan's Spellbook
Trystan spellbook grants Trystan 'Metamagic'. Once per turn, Trystan may opt to boost a spell with one of three Metamagics. Only one spell, per turn, my be boosted regardless of how many Trystan can use otherwise.

Extended - If a buff or hex, the spell's duration will last an additional 1 turn. If a damage spell, the range of the spell will increase by 1 hex.

Empowered - The 'effect' of the spell is empowered. Buffs and hexes will have their effects strengthen or may hit more targets while damage spells will do more damages or hit more targets. Effect varies based on spell.

Maximized - The spell will have the benefit of both Empowered and Extended.

When Extended or Empowered are picked, roll a D10. On a 1, the spell fails and Trystan takes 1 damage with no saves allowed. On a 2-3, the spell fails. On a 4+ the spell goes off. [10% chance to hurt him, 30% chance of spell failure] When Maximized is picked, roll a D10. On a 1-2, the spell fails and Trystan takes 1 damage with no saves allowed. On a 3-5, the spell fails. On a 6+ the spell goes off. [20% chance to hurt him, 50% chance of spell failure]

For Non-Trystan
If a character other then Trystan has the book, instead, each turn they may randomly roll 3 spells from the known spell list that Trystan acquired. They may then select one of those randomized spells to cast for free. The magic and knowledge comes from the book, itself, so anyone, even those without magic are capable of using this ability. If the character that has the book is a magic user, they may undergo a quest chain to fully unlock all spells Trystan had recorded as well as unlock the ability to metamagic them as if they were Trystan.

Silver Mirror
This beautifully crafted hand mirror is a unique magical artifact allowing people to converse over any distance. All someone must do is go to any mirror, or suitably reflected surface, speak the name of the owner with the intent of speaking with them. The mirror will then mentally 'alert' the owner that someone is wishing to speak to them as well as who they are. If the user does not wish to speak to them, the 'call' will not go through leaving the caller stuck staring at themselves. If the user does wish to speak to them, they must merely pull out the mirror and face it. The mirrored surfaces will be replaced with the image of the other person and they are free to communicate as if they were standing right before one another.

Eye of Pandora
Add +2 Damage to magical attacks. (Usable in Adventures once per adventure to roll 3 dice and take the highest number) but take 1 damage from Magical Overflow

Dispel Scroll [1]

Ring of Protection - Equipped by Tam

Blade of Destiny - Equipped by Tam
Strength: Deals an extra 2 damage and negates saves. If the unit is corrupted, that damage is doubled to 4
Weakness: If a save is negated and/or corrupted unit is attacked for extra damage, this Strength stops functioning for the remainder and has a 2 turn cool down.

Advancements
Advancement - Side Jobs
Trystan Galvingar is not above taking small jobs like janitorial duties, errand boy or slaying large rats in basements to earn a bit of money. If he is on a tile with a non-hostile settlement, he can use actions to take odd jobs to gain resources. More actions he uses, more resources he can gain.

Advancement - Extra Credit
Whenever Trystan Galvingar is on the Academy Tile, regardless of what class he is in, or if he is even a student anymore, he will produce a paper token for them.

Advancement - Student Aide
Whenever Trystan Galvingar is on the Academy tile, he can make use of Academy facilities and can use actions to gain a specific items {Potions, Scrolls, Mana Crystals, etc} from the academy facilities, as these are for his personal use, they are a bit different then what the Academy uses them for. [Feel free to change what these do, the cost, etc, for balance purposes]. All items are consumed upon use.

Advancement - I can't carry it, but I can carry you
As long as Ren is alive, the party ignores movement penalties

Advancement - The Fur Trade
While in a unclaimed tile, the party can hunt animals to collect fur and hides to sell. They roll a D4 for each character. The furs can be sold for X each.

Advancement: Lazarus Pit
The party can bring back any character so long as they have body [or most of it]. For members of Trystan's party, it will cost 10xT [Where T is the amount of turns the unit has been dead] in resources. If he is bringing back a character from another faction, either to try to bring them to his party or bring them back as a service, the price will be decided by Trek [May cost resources, may cost resources and consume the power of an artifact, may require a quest, etc].

They can only bring back mechanical characters if Elijah is alive. [They can only bring back organic if Trystan is alive, but if he dies the party disbands anyways]


Spellbook
Reflection [Spell Action/Passive? (Not actually sure)]
During Battle if attacked by a ranged or magic spell, roll a d10. On an 8+, the attack is reflected back to the unit that sent it, giving them the full damage of their own attack.

Protection [Free Action Spell]
Gives a 9+ save for one unit in the stack except for Trystan as a free action

Quicken
Combat spells, and consumables, used by Trystan are treated at +1 Initiative. Campaign spells always happen before any movement, spells or actions are taken by other factions. [The restriction to Trystan using spells, or teleport, to escape an enemy moving onto his space still applies].

We Will Be Remembered!
Before every battle [not adventure], Trystan can give a speech to his party and allied forces. This speech must be written out and posted in the fluff of the post for it to work. This speech may give a buff to friendly units, may apply a negative to friendly units, may apply a negative to enemy forces or can even give enemy forces a buff. The exact outcome of the speech is decided on by Trek as well as what modifiers, if any, it grants. The modifier last for the battle. Only one speech, per battle, can be given.

The Sane One


Scribe of the Council. Meeting Notes for meeting 23.

As is custom Requen Sunset began the meeting at midmorning and alerted the councilors of any business among the members of his tribe. As follows
  • The marriage of Datliw and Wavua Springspear
  • The death of Kwero Swiftwinds in the goblin incident
  • The death of Sikkah Eaglepelt to natural circumstances
From there the other tribes began their own reports and the councilors of other nations gave reports of the goings on of their own people. As follows is a partial list, full list located in final documentation within scribes office filed under meeting reports.

  • The death of Chianna Raventusks to the goblin incident
  • The death of Shortlimb to the goblin incident
  • The partial destruction of two breweries and one house to the goblin incident
  • The full 'repainting' of one house in the color red
A small argument broke out from this point as is custom before order was once again restored and the council put forth the main decisions for the month to be voted upon.

Issue One: How to appease the populace after the goblin incident and the damage caused by it.

Taran River, Head of Tribe River, proposed the introduction of mandatory mushroom usage in the manner that our goblin allies have. No second to the motion occurred.

Bos Moon, Head of Tribe Moon, proposed free foodstuffs and entertainment as both an apology and bribe for the public masses. Seconded by Leona Twilight. Vote occurred and results as follows:

  • Grantine Mountain: Nay
  • Colvine Fang: Nay
  • Four-Tooth: Nay
  • Long-Fire: Nay
  • The Small Star: Nay
  • Lithos Thunder: Nay
  • Willon Whisler: Nay
Vote passed 9 to 7 and efforts into the issue will occur posthaste.

Issue Two: The discovery of the ancient elemental and the need for research into the wards surrounding its prison. Motion for research proposed by Requen Sunset and seconded by all Taur-Ahe and Vulpine councilors. No vote required and research to begin among the shamans of Rahzen immediately.

Issue Three: The start of lack of proper worship and gifts to the spirits among those who worship them. Motion to move issue to council of Taur-Ahe and Vulpine proposed by Rahdek Storm and seconded by Grantine Mountain and passed.

Orchid was not having a good day. Orchid was never having a good day. The usually plucky fae limped to the royal archives, pride utterly shattered. They drug the two halves of Pylos down the halls. It was far too heavy for such a thin frame to carry. The orchestra that usually played there must have been out on lunch, because a strange quiet had befallen the place, save for the archivist scuttling around the towering bookshelves to clean and arrange specimens meticulously. Orchid had always wondered why the strange fellow was always cleaning and arranging. The static shields around the bookshelves kept dust out. Maybe it was a peculiar obsession.

“Orchid. Seems you’ve brought the body of Cadeya back in.” Orchid shakes their head and tosses the two broken pieces at the archivist’s feet. “No, this was Pylos. She got yanked through time and Cadeya abandoned us. I have her soul right now, we need her halves back up and I can ensoul them.”

The archivist rubbed his chin inquisitively. “Orchid my good fellow, why is she cut in half?” Shuddering, Orchid looked at their various injuries incurred from the fight with Zestari. “Remember those hulking undead that the creepy bonelord gave us? Well, they didn’t take kindly to Pylos informing us that Zestari is actually chaos corrupted.” Those words hung heavy in the air. Orchid was internally praying to Dialeth-Astor that the archivist believed the claim. “Well….” the archivist began “This was an obvious fact. Undeath and luck were his domains if I recall correctly, and those aren’t domains of order.” Orchid was floored. He knew the entire time? And said nothing? “The old elk was rather adept at keeping the influence of chaos away otherwise. Is he alright?”

If Orchid had a collared shirt and this was a cartoon, they’d be tugging at it. “Well you see…Pylos stabbed him in the eye. With a scared knife. And it made him angrier than I’ve ever seen, and half of his face turned to bone” The absurdity of the situation dawns on Orchid, as they realize Pylos may have started a very, very bad chain of events.

The archivist fumbled and dropped the priceless artefact they were holding. A precious vase with ancient symbols painted onto it. “I believe we are in dire trouble now.” He began to pace around the room and then abruptly stopped. “So. Why are you here? I can’t remove the chaos from him if that’s what you’re going to ask.”

Orchid sheepishly scratched the back of their head. “Yea….I actually want you to put Pylos back together so I can ensoul the vessel again.”

“WHAT?” the archivist roars. “She doomed us. Why in the nine hells would I EVER do that?”

Orchid raised their hands defensively “Because she knows quite a bit about dealing with chaos, and we need to nip this in the bud before we look like gross undead monstrosities.” The archivist huffed. Orchid was always impulsive, but never this bad. Their words rang true though. Pylos in her heyday was a high ranking Greenwarden. “Very well. But I’m removing her ability to fight completely. And neither of you are killing Zestari if there’s an alternative.”

Recently Resurrected Divine Feline Entity.
The Children of Mekhane


"In the beginning, The Shepherd was a man, born of FLESH, just as us. Through dedicated to MEKHANE, we can become as Them, pure."


Turn ??, Fall



Recollections of The Shepherd, Part 1.

When the Shepherd had opened their eyes for the first time, they had found their mind flooded with memories of a past life that seemed both alien and distant, though it had been his… theirs but days before. They could recall the life of a man they and others knew as Robert Bumaro. A simple Shepherd from a simple, primitive people who lived on the edges of the jungle, struggling to farm the infertile land and herding livestock between clearings. They remembered a life full of hardship, dominated by emotion, ignorance, and ruled by nature. They saw images of a life of ups and downs, the course of days determined by things as simple and natural as the weather. Entire years were dictated by the bounty of meager harvests and ruined by unexpected droughts.

Looking back at it all, it seemed foolish and brutish. They faced problems that could have easily been solved through logic, but instead they had turned to the supernatural… praying to spirits and forces of nature that either could not answer their pleas, or simply did not care to. Robert Bumaro, the man they once were and in a way still was, had been a man ruled by the desires and will of FLESH…

The word and all it’s meaning came to the being formerly known as Robert in a flood of understanding, entire encyclopedias of history and context, grand bodies of philosophical thought appearing within their mind as if it had always been there- though they had never heard the word or had its history explained to them before.

They dived deeper into their mind, finding images, ideas and understandings that did not belong to Robert. They sifted through these memories, but not out of curiosity. Thinking on this, they found that they in fact felt… nothing. Not a calm, focused state, but in fact nothing. They did, of course, feel in the physical sense, they could sense the cold metal beneath their feet, feel the cool air blowing gently across their metal skin. But when it came to emotions… they found they felt none, and had none to feel. They could remember feeling them, back when they were still Robert Bumaro, but the memory was an understanding that they had felt these ways and what these ways meant, but they could not recall had these emotions felt.
And they understood that this emotionless state was good, was right. Their thinking was no longer clouded by emotion as it once had, allowing them to think logically and act rationally, no longer constrained. It was how they ought to be, and how others ought to think… how they ought to guide others to think…

They could sense intuitively that they had a purpose twofold, given to them by a higher power. The first was to teach others to think with an emotionless, purely logical mind as they did, To reject the temptations of their body and the fallacies of emotional reasoning. The second was to reconstruct this higher power… the Divine Machine… MEKHANE. The name demanded reverence, and just as with the thought of FLESH, grand works and histories filled their mind, an understanding of what... whom MEKHANE was and what they stood for... and what They must stand for in HER place.

The mention of HER name brought more memories to light. Recent memories, ones that explained to them how they had become who they were now and what they were now… how Robert Bumaro, the misguided Shepherd, had died… no, been reborn, made whole, made pure. Made in the image of MEKHANE.
They could remember Rober- themselves, running, panting… the feeling of soft dirt and leaves beneath their- HIS feet, a burning feeling in his legs and chest as he has pushed himself forward, the sound of wind whipping him as he ran. He could remember immense pain… his hands covered in crimson, clinging desperately to a wound in his chest…

There had been rustling in the forest behind him… the snapping of branches, pounding of feet in the dirt… voices hollering, yelling at HIM… and getting closer with each thundering beat of his heart…
He had been running, chased by savage men in animal hide wielding spears… intent on finishing the job they had started, angry at him for some dispute that in his new state seemed trivial, this reaction illogical, easily resolved through words alone.

He had felt fear and dreadful certainty, recognizing his mortality. They would catch him, or he would bleed out. Those were the only two options. In desperation, he had looked around wildly, for somewhere to hide. Perhaps he could hold on long enough so that he could lose them and then he could limp back to the village... maybe their Shaman could heal even his egregious wound...

Seeing a dark spot beneath the twisted roots of a massive tree, he had dived into it blindly, and found himself suddenly tumbling downwards.

They could remember only flashes of images and feelings past that point. The sensation of tumbling downwards… the sight of thick roots snaking down rock walls… the painful crunch of crashing and bouncing against stone… the cracking and breaking of their bones and body...

After what seemed like either a moment or a life time, they had suddenly found their momentum brought to a halt, landing somewhere below and the world exploding into a flash of colors before it all went dark.

The next thing they remembered was laying atop a table in a strange place, incomprehensible and it’s features obscured by the fog of pain and memory. Hazy figures stood over him, their forms not quite human, too angular of features, their heads too box like and too many limbs extending from their torsos. His head rang, and he heard muted unnatural sounds… metallic clicks and whirs, tonal chirps and drums, all blending into one cacophonous scream.

They remembered immense pain, being unable to move save to twitch and blink. One of the out of focus figures had leaned down and stabbed him with something long and sharp, the prick filling him with a momentary searing pain and then it all began to fade away… the last conscious image they remembered were misshapen arms closing in from above…

They had then awoken, some time later, laying atop an operating table within HER BEATING HEART, the knowledge and memories of the place coming to them just as the knowledge of THE FLESH had. The guardians of HER HEART, humanoid automata that both maintained HER BEATING HEART and gave HER gifts to those who could use them to bring about HER reconstruction. They had found him… taken him into HER BEATING HEART and given him HER gifts, remaking him in HER image. They had bowed reverently towards them, saying nothing. The construct formerly known as Robert Bumaro remained there for some time, sifting through their new memories and knowledge, examining their new body. Their flesh had been stripped away, in its place were augments of steel and bronze, made of technology far behind any that had blessed this world in millennia.

The Shepherd, at that time unnamed, had exited HER BEATING HEART some time later, the floorplan of the facility intuitively known to them, the transporter, unused since ages long since turned to legend but meticulously maintained by the guardians, bursting through the earth, toppling the tree that had sat atop it. Unceremoniously, MEKHANE had returned to the world, at least in some small part.

Birth of Nations: Act 2: Age of Colonialism


As the forces begin to roll out from their respective landing positions, The General can only stop to think about this nation of Mekhane that came to visit him. Certainly, they could be a useful ally in helping to pacify this continent for the safety of all Fafrium.

Eyes will of course be set upon them, in case they have alternative motives than what they have presented. But it seems as though they covet Old World Technology and that should help them keep the line.

The very fact that they respect technology and are antematha to all that is magic, is indeed very, very promising.

Time will tell how this all proceeds.


Clan Spike Horde

Chieftain Mahk came out of a meeting with the village elders. The Shamans have said that the tides of war were upon them. A war unlike any that they had seen before. Against a forces as relentless as The Mabinogi, but with enough numbers such as to blot out the sun in the sky.

They would focus on war so that in the future, they could have peace.

Actions: Train 3 Orc Warriors

12 Orc Warriors , 5 Orc Catapult, 6 Dire Boar Rider


—-----------------------

Ogre Nation

They had arrived at one of the Collective’s flying cities. Now was the time for them to invade and crush their enemies in one fell swoop. They had even placed them within the same airspace to attempt to provide additional protection.

Bah.

That would prove ineffective, especially once he had entered the field of combat.

Ogre machines and their ogres riding giant beasts had jumped into the fray on the Pyramid. Its ancient defenses opening fire on the creatures, with only a small handful falling to the blasts. The rest landing safely on the upper deck.

The machines of Straed collided with the Ogres as Lord Ga’Lade in his mech challenged the Leader of the Ogres, Tiny to one on one combat as the fighting continued to occur around them.

“I remember you, beast. Though I did not fight you. You’re at least as old as me and no where near as good looking.” The old man chuckled at his quip as he waited for Tiny to respond.

“I heard about you too, Old Man. You were defeated by Barbarians and couldn’t hold your own castle against them.” Tiny gave a hearty belly laugh as he swung a large blow of his tree sized club with which, Ga’Lade dodged in his mech while explosions danced around them from the other fighters.

“Hmmf. Well, at least I didn’t get defeated by a Toulosian General and tossed into the frozen waters.” Ga’Lade punched Tiny in his face with a rocket fist and barely managed to dodge the following return punch.

“Graaawwr! She cheated! No one should be able to get their troops to be so non squishy! It not fair!” Tiny began stomping his feet, causing the very ground beneath them to begin cracking.

“Or perhaps she was just better than you?” Ga’Lade figured to keep his opponent off balance by continuing this line of thought. If so, perhaps he could take him out. The Ogre was a giant of a beast, after all.

“NOOO! TINY IS BEST AND TINY WILL PROVE IT TO YOU!” While Ga’Lade was in midair from a recent dodge, Tiny managed to grab the leg of his mech and pull it down into the ground, smashing it hard.

The safety features of the mech were all that kept him alive. He felt at least a few ribs were cracked and he was bleeding from a headwound. But this old man still had some fight left in him.

Crawling out of the shattered mech, he dragged himself to his feet, drawing his ancient blade.

“I am Lord Ga’Lade, hero of many wars and leader of his people. I stand before you a warrior and even should I fall, it will be the glorious death of a warrior. So en garde!”

The older man lunged forward, slashing at Tiny’s ankles, causing pain, but very little damage to the huge Ogre.

Tiny laughed a hearty belly laugh. “This is what you present to me, old man? It seems all that talk was just empty words.”

He reached down to grab the elderly man, only to get his hand slashed and sliced for his own delights. The Ogre took his tree sized club and smashed the old man with it across the deck.

The Legend of Lord Ga’Lade ends there.

As Tiny looks up from his fight, he watches as the remainder of his forces have been wiped out by the Collective, but not before inflicting serious casualties among them.

The Giant Ogre roared in rage as he continued to fight all by himself and would continue to do so. He would not due here. He would not lose here. This will be his victory. One way or the Other.


—-------------------------------

Penumbra

An army is arriving from the south. How DARE they threaten the sanctity of The Goddess. How DARE they go back on their word to spread the greatness that is this plague of The Scythe. How DARE they push forward with their idiotic contrivances.

It shall be they that fall and not us. They will fall before our might and their empires will be infected with the glorious disease that is a gift from the Goddess.

The Defenses are ready. LET THEM COME


—------------------------------


The Fafrium Empire

A bespectacled man chuckled slightly to himself as he toured the grounds. No longer did he have to hide in the shadows . No longer did he have to focus on assimilation and slowly drawing people in towards the cause.

No.

He had finally assembled a new base of operations. One from which, they would have endless possibilities.

The man looked over his shoulder to the Driders that were assembling on the grounds and smiled as his old friend, an Orc was berating them. She wasn’t happy to have been brought back from death. But he needed her. She kept him more…grounded.

But soon…..soon enough, they would act.

Withers looked down at a small hand mirror that glowed a dark green.

The Boy would face his toughest challenge yet.


The Academy

The Academy went about its daily routines. The threat of war looming over the continent did not bother them in the slightest as they had assurances that none would interfere with them as long as they remained a neutral party. Of which they would be staying. They had students to attend to and tomes to research.

The Auctioneer placed his thin bony hands behind his back as he looked at all that he had acquired from the auctions. A wisp of a smile appeared on his thin lips. The wonders would never cease to amaze or torment.

The Sane One


Sunset Mountain Training Grounds

"Get to it you layabouts! I want all of you up and training on the double!" Callarhan's voice echoed out over the field and the army gathered upon it, the entire ground forces of Rahzen assembled into one group for the first time in months to train. He glanced to the sky, watching the Blizzen forces in the air flow through their own formations for a moment before turning back to focus on his own group of Vulpine and Taur-Ahe. "I want fifty more repetitions before we finish for the day, hop to it! Commanders, all of you to me!"

Even as groans of protest echoed from the troops, the varying heroes of Rahzen began to gather slowly with those in charge of the different troops leaving their own orders for continued training. Once they had all gathered Callarhan took in the sight, from the pair of Blizzen made up of Blacktop and Norma, to the elemental forms of Tal'ki and their Greater Elemental ally, their Azghul created ally by the same name, and to his own kinsmen of Vin'Taur. With a nod he motioned for Vigo to step forward from behind him, the skull in his hand shimmering to bring forth the images of their aquatic allies of Aquilosh and the Fallen Star as well.

"Thank you Vigo, this is the first time that we have all been gathered in one place in far to long and Requen asked me to have this meeting to ensure that we were all ready for the battles that both he and myself feel are coming. As such I wanted to ensure that we all had the equipment and weaponry that would best suit our styles of fighting, something that has already been taken care of for the most part. The only true change to be made is that we want Norma to learn how to use the Helm of the Forest which we recovered, the rest of you are properly equipped or the artifacts we have are not well suited to you," the general paced even as he spoke, his words garnering shorts nods or sounds of affirmation from the others. "Does anyone else have anything they believe should be brought up at this time or are we free to return to out training? No? Good, get to it then!"


Omakes

"Perhaps it needs to be worn as a hat?" the elderly shaman peered at the skull in front of him before shrugging and putting it on. "Hmm, doesn't seem to be working, perhaps it requires a key word?"

The shaman began chanting several words in old languages and new, growing more and more frustrated as time wore on and he was unable to get the artifact to work. Amid his ranting of magically inclined words he failed to notice the entrance of several others, primarily those among the council who were on the younger side.

"Blast it all! Abracadabra! Alakazam! Please work you blasted piece of junk before I blast you to fragments!" the shaman lost his nerve at last and began to rant and curse, still oblivious to his audience.

"Ah Vigo, there you are! I found the instructions that the Auctioneer wrote for usage of the skull on my desk, it fell out apparently!" Requen paused as he entered the room, taking in the sight of the shaman wearing a skull as a hat and cursing up a storm, all with a laughing audience. "I'll ah, I'll come back later."

The Council head vacated the room quickly, doing his best to hide his own laughter as a loud groan of annoyance followed him out of the room.
"Order you lot, we are joined today by a representative of our newest allies in his official capacity of a councilor," Requen spoke before the rest of the council, quickly waving a hand to the covered shape next to him. "Without further ado I'd like you all to meet Four-Tooth."

The Falling Sun tore away the covering, showcasing a large mechanical shark - creating a sound as if it was snoring with its eyes closed?

"Blast it, knew that we shouldn't have moved him in here last night," the rest of the council just stared at their leader as he shook his head and muttered, all of them wondering if this was truly the best among them.

Gaozu approached the large tent that was their momentary headquarters for the latest construction, nodding his head to the two Monks outside that watched the entrance. Pushing away the canvas of the tent, he peered inside.

"Mother? May we talk?"

Wu's cheek flickered for just an instant at the disturbance before she smiled, and waved the men away. With a bow, the two soldiers left, their eyes locking on unerringly at the Prince as they marched by. The Princes brow furrowed at the interaction before he looked to his mother and spoke.

"The construction goes well, already bridges have been built over the canals by the Navvies and with them finally established lumber and stone move more smoothly around the settlement. With the boats and carts carrying supplies in very direction, soon the great Wéiqiáng will watch over us as we take root in this new continent."

With a sense of pride, The Prince of Most Brilliant Blue came to stand next to his Mother, overlooking the maps and plans of their latest city.

Like fire and ice they had came together, the cool head of the Prince overseeing the construction and the supplies while the fiery determination of the Red Mother inspired and pushed the people to succeed, the two sides separate but working in unison as they built. But still a feeling of angst gnawed at the sapphire sovereign, as he watched his people work.

While Gaozu, at first, had it rough with members of the workforce, their suspicious eyes and silent murmurings an untoward thing, he was eventually accepted by them but the same seemed to be happening yet again, amidst the walls of Wéiqiáng. Were his people so fickle that his time away left them disillusioned with him?

He was glad his mother was here with him, the Empress an inspiring woman and exceptional role model, easily moulding the men under her into an assiduous force. Hence why he now sought her council. With a sombre exhalation, Gaozu told Wu of his troubles.

"Mother..." he murmured apprehensively "Do the people speak ill of me? Have you heard whispers about my person that seem troubling?"

Wu reared her head back, her eyebrows knitting together as she looked at him, questioningly. "The people they look at me differently as of late, don't you agree? As if I have wronged them in some way. I know I have been in the weeds in recent months, most of my time being spent away from the settlements but it has been all for their benefit..."

"You are putting too much thought into the matter" replied Wu, reaching out to touch her son before considering otherwise. "Do not worry about such things"

"But these are my people, if I have hurt them..." interjected Gaozu, as he stared down at the table.

Wu grit her teeth at the interruption, and took a deep breath "If it bothers you so, I shall look into it for you." she replied firmly, the Prince looking up at her as she spoke.

"But you are being foolish, your time away on the front has made you wary of others. The peoples wants and needs are their own, all we can do as monarchs is navigate the river that is our subjects, and go with it's flow. If are goals are aligned at one time or another then so be it. "

The Prince of Most Brilliant Blue bobbed his head as he considered her words. "Yes, you are right. I am being a fool."

He lifted himself back up. "Thank you Mother. I believe your are correct in your assessment of me. Caution and watchfulness are fine travelling companions when on the front but in our glorious cities they are best left outside it's walls."

Gaozu bowed to his mother. "I shall leave you to your business. Thank you once again and forgive my interruption"

Standing tall once again, and feeling all the better after his chat, the Prince departed.

Sorath laughed to himself as he walked down Zestari’s inner sanctum, alone at last. The old beast had gone off to war at his behest. It was a good day for the Reaver. He got to split an obnoxious construct in half, and phase two of his plans were finally underway. Lord T’Rment was an old fool that got himself trapped in a well. He had no appreciation for the true art of undeath, it was simply a tool to defend against the daemonic incursion.
The hulking reaver slowly dragged his axe across the ground, carving a wide scar in it that slowly began to emit a black fluid. Statecraft was not particularly interesting. War? That’s what he was built for. It’s a shame Zestari took two of his brothers to march on that putrid and plague soaked earth. But he was the most articulate of his four brothers, so it would have been unwise to risk his life anyways.
A swirling red ball of light began to coalesce in the center of the sanctum. Although Sorath didn’t have an eyebrow to raise, he’d have done so if possible. The reaver approached the ball, axe in hand. “Who dares enter this place? Leave at once or I shall carve you in twixt.”
The light began to laugh ominously. “Oh Sorath. You’ve done more for me than you could ever know. You’ve started a chain reaction. The final downfall of the fae empire.”
Sorath leered. This vain presence dared to insult him? In his own sanctum? “And just what exactly did I do to provoke this?”
“Corrupted the glue that was holding this little band together. Their order was beginning to threaten cosmic entropy, and the world needs balance” it thrummed in a low tone. “You’ve done well. So well in fact, I offer a blessing of chaos for your efforts.”
At this prospect, Sorath laughed. “Stop speaking like you’re in control here, peon. I’ve got no interest in letting you puppet me poorly like a fledgeling necromancer.” He struck his axe down on the ball, and it began to scream and fizzle to nothingness.
“WHY” it screeched. “WHY??”
“Because I’m creating a vanguard against the Song by any means necessary. I don’t have time for vacuous promises of power and cosmic games. This is for the plane.”

The Shepherd, tasked with spreading HER word, set out towards his village, to spread HER gifts and free Their people from the shackles of THE FLESH. Yet the Shepherd was unsure how to do so. Their people were a zealous people, strong in their belief in their spirits and demons of nature. How could The Shepherd shake them of their willing servitude? What could They do or say that would have any hope of opening their minds?

As soon as The Shepherd began to think on this, what actions and words They could take and speak to convince the village of the truths of MEKHANE, scenarios began to play out in Their mind. Hundreds, thousands of different scenarios, some different by a simple change in The Shepherds phrasing, or a reaction of a tribesmen, others dramatically different, scenarios in which They said different things, took different actions, the villagers responding in different manners. All the possibly conceivable courses of action and their likely consequences played out in The Shepherds mind, an infinite, ever ballooning, forking of diverting realties that could unfold, each where either The Shepherd said or did something different, or the villagers did. The Shepherd saw every scenario play out in their mind. Some in which they were successful, others in which they were not. The Shepherd intuitively understood the chance each scenario had of unfolding, They could pick out with ease the words and actions that would most likely end in Their success.

A mortal mind would have been overwhelmed by the endless stream of possibilities, but The Shepherd was not possessed of a mortal mind. The Shepherd was a fragment of MEKHANE, harboring an intellect only seconded by the assembled whole. The Shepherd saw a thousand possibilities in a blink of an eye, and through this divined the correct words and actions to sway the minds of his village.

Armed with this divine knowledge, The Shepherd returned to their village. They treated The Shepherd with suspicion and hostility at first, not believing that they had ever been Robert Bumaro, viewing them rather as a malevolent demon, a trickster spirit sent to test them. But as They spoke, following the ever forking path of possibilities, they were slowly made to see that They were in fact Robert Bumaro, that They were not a demon nor spirit, but an angel. The Robert Bumaro freely gave them the blessings of MEKHANE; giving the blind sight, making the the lame to walk, gifting the old new youth. Slowly the village was made to see the light of MEKHANE and they came to worship The Shepherd, casting down their idols of FLESH and Nature.

Under The Shepherds Guidance the tribal village was turned into a proper town, a growing beacon of civilization in a world consumed by The FLESH. The pains of hunger no longer touched the town as the Shepherd showed them how to prepare the fallow ground, the raids of neighboring tribes no longer threatened them as The Shepherd how showed them how to construct sturdy walls and weapons of steel, FLESH and barbarity no longer ruled their minds as The Shepherd taught them to think logically and act rationally.

From this beacon, the word of MEKHANE spread, tribes coming as pilgrims to the town to receive the blessings and guidance of The Shepherd. Each mortal returned to their primitive tribes changed, enlightened by the word of MEKHANE, taught to reason and given the blessings of MEKHANE, their Flesh turned to steel. They took these teachings to mind, spreading them to their villages and then to the villages beyond. HER truths spread, and mortals across the land were turned away from the FLESH,

Birth of Nations: Act 2: Age of Colonialism


The North East of the Continent seems to be mobilizing. But it is unknown at this time if it is doing so in order to merely defend its borders or if they are going to attempt to push back at our “invasion” of this new land.

Our forces are pushing outwards at a steady pace so as to both not alert the natives by bum rushing the competition, but also to ensure that all of our troops are moving together as one. Anyone left behind will certainly mess up any attacks that are needed.


Clan Spike Horde

War. War Never Changes. Or at least, that is what they had always believed in their training and their dealing with fighting and battle. However, The Cogs had shown them that war could indeed be different. It has allowed them to be more prepared for war than they have ever been before.

Actions: Train 3 Orc Warriors

12 Orc Warriors , 5 Orc Catapult, 6 Dire Boar Rider


—-----------------------

Ogre Nation

The battle continues to rage. The ogres have mostly fallen, but they are fighting for every inch of territory. Tiny will not be falling without a fight. One that he is more than big enough to keep pushing.

The Giant Ogre didn’t fight his way to the top of the food chain for nothing. He ripped another machine’s head off with his massive teeth and swallowed it whole.

Tasted terrible, but better inside his stomach than outside punching him in the gut.

—-------------------------------

Penumbra

The Hordes of plagued soldiers stood at the ready. They have trained for many months to spread their glorious holiness gifted from the Goddess towards the rest of the world. They will no longer hoard their precious gift.

It will be spread towards the invaders first and then after they are defeated, it will be spread towards others. First the Nations in the South and then the Nations in the North.

Plans had changed. The Mushroom people will make a great method to spread their Gift to all the rest. Once they fall to it, it will be that much easier.

The General smiled at these thoughts. The Goddess would be much pleased with her soon enough.

The Fafrium Empire The
Ascendant

Withers walked through the town and observed the wonderful technology that now belonged to The Ascendant. It was far easier to take over this group of The Fafrium Empire Invasion force than he had first believed.

It was most likely due to the fact that his people had already begun infiltrating and converting the populace before the Invasion force had arrived.

The bespectacled man smiled. It was nice to have resources behind him again. The fall of the previous Capital had been not only a sad time, but also a dangerous time. Looking back on that, he was a far different man back then. That time had changed him, changed him into the person he was now. One that had been capable of leading this group as far as they had gone.

And soon enough, he would lead them even further beyond.

It will be easy enough to appease the COGS and mislead the remainder of the Fafrium forces.

Withers began penning a letter as he heard the crashing sound of Astra outside flipping over one of the Fafrium Land Ships. One of the side effects of being brought back from the dead, it seems, was improved strength.




The Academy

The Academy went about its daily routines. The threat of war looming over the continent did not bother them in the slightest as they had assurances that none would interfere with them as long as they remained a neutral party. Of which they would be staying. They had students to attend to and tomes to research.

The Dean received word that Greater Titiana would be reaching their shores soon. It truly seemed as if The Mother and Father Lands were coming to this new land. Something he was not particularly fond of. But as long as they did not interfere in his teachings, it did not matter in the long run.

Recollections of The Shepherd, Part 3

Many villages and tribes came under the guidance of The Shepherd, the title being the name given to Them in reverence to Their role. These primitive settlements turned first to small towns, and then to cities as reason and philosophy turned to science and technology. HER Children worked to restore the knowledge of the Old World and recover the lost artifacts of the ancient Mekhanites. Most importantly, they set out to recover HER scattered parts, determined to reconstruct the DIVINE MACHINE and excise THE FLESH from the world.

Eagerly, HER Children spread the faith, using their faculties of reason unlocked by The Shepherd to convince FLESH-bound tribes of HER truth and banish ITS corruption. Many tribes were converted this way, The Shepherd having no need to intervene. But there would be the occasional thorn of resistance, some village unwilling to listen to reason, clinging desperately to their chains. When both logic and gifts of technology could not sway them, The Shepherd Themselves would be called to the village.

Using the gift of Their mind, Their ability to predict endless diverging branches of possibilities and the chances of each occurance, The Shepherd found that they could persuade those Their Priests could not, They could divine the right thing to say, the thread to pull on, the blessings to shower them with.

But this did not mean that every village The Shepherd attended to would ultimately be converted, The Shepherd would not, could not, always find success. Some Villages seemed impossible to shake from their devotion to THE FLESH, The Shepherd found that they could not predict any outcome with certainty, only the chance that it’s occurrence held. This chance could be quite high, or could be dismally low, and was often uncertain.

When The Shepherd had returned to their original village to convert Their tribesmen, They had intimate knowledge of the wants and needs of each village member, the beliefs and values they held, who among them spoke for whom and who held sway over the rest, and this knowledge had been instrumental in knowing what to say and what to give to convince each man, it had allowed them to predict with great certainty the outcomes of any line of action.

But these distant, isolated and primitive villages They were called out to were unknown to Them, and often to Their Priests. The Shepherd found that the less They knew about a village and the people within, the less certainty They had in divining the path forward, and thus the less chance of success They had. If They could convince even a single members of the village, and then question them about it and learn of its people through them, The Shepherd found that They could much more easily and with much certainty find success.

They found that this… *difficulty* did not apply simply to their ability to convert stubborn heathens. No, it seemed to apply to any calculation The Shepherd sought to make; any divination made by The Shepherd was limited by their knowledge regarding the variables involved. If there was some factor outside of Their knowledge, their prediction would be appropriately flawed.

This posed little issue to The Shepherd in the beginning. They had been born in Their village and raised by its people. They knew each member, knew every occurrence within the village and many outside it. Any variables, any information they did not have was easily gathered. They could predict the outcome of any action, any path taken, with certainty.

And it remained this way for some time, The Shepherd able to divine the optimal pathway forward to spread the faith and reclaim MEKHANE’s vision. But as Their people grew, the primitive village turning into a bustling town of stone and steel, and more villages and towns came under Their guidance, The Shepherd found their divinations increasingly uncertain, more often not quite right, sometimes even outright wrong. The Shepherd discovered that the larger Their people grew, the more spread across the land they became, the more varied and complex their organizations and activities, the less able The Shepherd was to know all of the happenings of Their people. The Shepherd was not omnipotent, only able to divine based on what They had learned Themselves.

To solve this, The Shepherd created an organization dedicated to gathering knowledge of all happenings within Their kingdom and reporting it to Them. This aided The Shepherd, who could not possibly be in all the cities and towns of Their growing nation at once, and They found that Their divinations could once more be made with certainty… but still not with the certainty that they had before.

Their network, The Ears of The Shepherd, was slow. Info from the farthest villages took weeks to reach The Shepherd, perhaps too late to react to or be included in their divinations. Their bustling cities were too complex and wild, Their mortal servants could not discern every small happening. Most problematic was the imperfection of The Shepherds Ears. They were mortal creatures, constrained by the Flesh of their making. They err’d, and thus caused error in the divinations of The Shepherds.

Even with perfect knowledge, The Shepherd could not direct all activities of HER Children themselves. There were far too many, spread across too far of distances. The Shepherd was forced to appoint Priests to orchestrate Their will in Their stead. These Priests could not make the same calculations that the Shepherd did, and thus their rule was imperfect.

All of these factors combined to lesson to ability of The Shepherd to guide Their people, who acted at times illogically and made could make even the most certain calculus useless, each of thousands of possible disparate paths having fractions of a chance to occur.

As time passed and cities grew, Her Children began to grow and change separately from, and sometimes even contrary to the will of The Shepherd. Their faith and culture began to take on a will of its own, one The Shepherd fought to control. Their Priests preached HER divine truths, but did not, could not, understand it fully, and so they, in their ignorance, changed it as they spoke it. The faithful listened intently, but equally were incapable of understanding and so each twisted the faith further within their flawed minds. They took the words of The Shepherd to illogical extents, applying them with the zealously of FLESH, unable to see how THE FLESH influenced even their worship of logic, creating in them a simulacrum of the concept.

When The Shepherd had attempted to convert Their first disciples, They had done so as a teacher, as a philosopher and mentor, pointing out to them the flaws in their reasons, the pains of their desires and the harm that befell them at the hands of the FLESH. They had spoken little of MEKHANE or of faith, focused instead on the principles and philosophy of HER logic, as practice in this was no different than worship.

But this line of augmentation had bore little success, the Heathen villagers refused to acknowledge the truth of The Shepherds words, refused to engage in Their arguements and refuted them faith; with appeals to nature and the will of the spirits that ruled them. The FLESH held a tight Vice around their minds, they could not be swayed by logic alone.

The Shepherd changed their tactic, beginning to speak on faith, speaking of MEKHANE and how SHE lay broken, how SHE must one day be put back together so that SHE may rid of the world of the corruption of FLESH once and far all. How MEKHANE would bless their bodies with mechanical perfection and rid them of the woes of Their FLESH, how SHE would remake this world into a paradise.

The mention of MEKHANE caught the attention of the villagers, who began to listen eagerly to the words of the Shepherd. The Shepherd found that by speaking of MEKHANE and HER truth, by wrapping the philosophy of logic of MEKHANE in faith, The Shepherd could win over the villagers by playing the FLESH at its own game. Finding this to have been the most optimal route, The Shepherd had begun constructing a faith from the knowledge and images shared with Them by HER, one which would capture the minds of mortals and teach them HER truth.

But The Shepherd had not spoken with MEKHANE, did not know of the ancient faith of the Mekhanites. They only had scraps of knowledge implanted within their mind and flashes of images, of a divine machine and a great people, of technology beyond understanding and cities of steel, and their destruction. This left them but an incomplete, pitifully insufficient summary from which to forge a religion. But to sway the mortals of the land from their worship of FLESH, The Shepherd knew that They would need a faith of their own with which to upsurp it, and so they crafted it. Slowly, adding to it as needed to better spread the faith and guide mortals along the right path.

But the construction of a faith had come at a terrible price- it itself was a corruption of the FLESH. It placed constraints on their minds, bounding their logic within a framework that was based not on reason, but on emotion. Worship was fueled by emotion and clouded the faculties of reason. It was an infection of the mind. It spread from person to person by word of moron, through dinner time conversations, zealous speeches and sermons. The Shepherd could see how THE FLESH spread, disguised as HER word.

The Shepherd sought to combat this corruption of faith, but knew they could not dissolve it. They could only use the faith as a tool to banish THE FLESH as they had before. The Shepherd thus tried to guide them back to the right path, but found Their reach insufficient, Their empire too bloated… With their divine calculus unusable and their Priests infected… The Shepherd could do nothing. Perhaps this is why the first Mekhanites had fallen to THE FLESH… perhaps they had been poisoned and corrupted by THE FLESH long before their fall…

Their empire was a ship of which They were no longer at the helm, rather it’s course was set by the random, illogical feelings of those They had set out to guide.

They pondered a solution to this problem, but before one could be reached, THE FLESH struck out against The Shepherd in the form of the Heathen Lughan, pulling The Shepherds attention away.

The battle with the Heathen Lughan saw Her Children achieve victory over THE FLESH, but barely. Her cities lay not in ruins but gone entirely, consumed by FLESH, and all but the temple upon HER BEATING HEART remained. All the pieces HER Children had gathered had been scattered, lost in a fight The Shepherd had but narrowly won.

But in this devastation, The Shepherd saw opportunity, a solution to the problem they had previously pondered. Their empire had grown too large, it’s people too spread out and thus uncontrollable, their needs and desires drowned out by many voices, their minds too numerous to guide by The Shepherds hand, susceptible instead to THE FLESH. But now Their empire was shrunk, their people contained but in a single complex, and their numbers few enough know and most importantly control.

And so The Shepherd gave Her Children a new mandate for the future: not to rebuild, not to spread wide and preach HER voice, but to remain near to HER HEART, to hide from the world and keep the knowledge of HER reconstruction from the world. This drastic turn from previously policy was met with shock and even disappointment, but The Shepherd found the few that remained easy to sway, just as They had swayed the first villages, generations ago. The Shepherd gave them justifications they needed to hear, the ones which would sway their minds and allow them to be contained within a single city in which The Shepherd could guide them.

And thus Amoni-Ram was born, and for a time The Shepherd found that They could manage this city with the omnipotence of Their earlier days. But the city grew as the others had before, and as it swelled in size, it’s population doubled, tripled and so forth… once more requiring the complex mechanisms of managing such a sprawling people… things returned to how they had been before. The infection of faith began to sweep through the city; the uncontrollable mass of Flesh had returned. The Shepherd had considered limiting the growth of Their people, preventing them from reaching such an unmanageable size, but They knew this would leave them too few to fend off the FLESH and thus The Shepherd had no choice but to watch Their people slip once more from Their guidance and control.

As before, The Shepherds words and teachings became twisted by Fleshy minds. Arguments over the nature of the faith began, ones that began to threaten to tear Her Children apart as the splitting branches of faith became unreconcilable denominations. And this time, there was no threat of FLESH to reunite them. All sides turned to The Shepherd for answers, for Them to tell them who was right and who was but heretics, forcing The Shepherd to take a side.

The Shepherd, their calculus clouded by the unpredictable mass of FLESH that filled their city, could not divine a way to bridge the divides of the faith. They knew that any path they took would lead to conflict between their people, one side must be chosen over the others, or none at all. All choices led to the spilling of blood.

Each denomination was based in their own interpretation of The Shepherds teachings, each with their own logical failings and leaps, each twisting the words of The Shepherd in their own way and forgoing HER will in their attempts to uphold it.

First were the Fundamentalists, those who took The Shepherd’s words in the strictest and most literal sense, and tolerated no dissent. They stretched the teachings of The Shepherd to everything they could make to fit, creating a view of the world in which all was either HER, or THE FLESH, with nothing between. They were emotional and illogical in their pursuit of purity, not of their bodies, but of the world. They strived for pure logic, as did the others, but went so far as to be illogical in their pursuit of it. Their victory would lead to authoritarian oppression and conflict with those peoples they deemed servants of THE FLESH, a definition they cast with a wide net, including those who practiced magic in any form.

The second were the Moderates. They treated The Shepherd and Their word as the source of all truth of logic, as did the Fundamentalists, but were not as rigid in their interpretations nor as zealous and sweeping in their applications of the Shepherds truths. They welcomed some debate over what it means to be logical and we’re more forgiving to those who strayed and those people they deemed lost and illogical. They saw that HER truth would be best spread by showing the gifts of MEKHANE, saving violence only for those who worshiped THE FLESH, casting a net less wide than the Fundamentalists, and viewed magic as simply misguided.

Next were the Assemblists, who through their skepticism rightly concluded that The Shepherd was not and could not be the divine arbiter of MEKHANES truth, and was simply a part of that truth. If The Shepherd was but a fragment of MEKHANE, than the knowledge and truths They shared were but also a fragment of the full truths, and thus should be regarded as a starting place and prone to error. This made them seem as heavily misguided by the Moderates and as Heathen FLESH cultists by the Fundamentalists, especially as these Assemblists often practiced magic, with a fondness for thaumaturgy, claiming that it was logical and equally part of MEKHANES truth as technology was.

Finally, the smallest and most controversial of the primary denominations that HER Children found themselves in, were the Dualists, mocking called “The Great Balancers”. Theirs was the most disparate of the interpretations of the faith. They looked at the world and saw a constant balancing act between all forces, including those of MEKHANE and those the THE FLESH, and believed that this balanced must be maintained, and that individuals and society should seek to find that balances themselves and only them can they obtain true Gnosis. They did not see THE FLESH as the root of all evil and MEKHANE as the pinnacle of all that is good as the others did, seeing both as neutral forces that did both good and bad and whose dominance equally threatened the world. Some even went to go as far as to oppose HER reconstruction, fearing this would disrupt the balance of the world. They openly embraced magic and THE FLESH, and thus were at odds with most all other denominations.

The Shepherd carefully considered which of the denominations to support, using what power Their Divine Calculus still held. The Dualists were deemed to be unacceptable to The Shepherd, even a threat to Their purpose. Their worship of THE FLESH and their resistance to HER reconstruction made their views unreconciliable with the others and with The Shepherd themselves. The Assemblists were by far the most logical of the four major denominations, and the most in line with HER truth. But they were opposed vehemently by the Fundamentalists, and choosing them would with certainty call them to arms. The Assemblers skepticism kept them protected from zealous blindness, but at the same time made them vulnerable to the same chaotic forces of faith that caused this splintering of the faith, making them an untenable choice. . The Moderates were more zealous than the Assemblists, the ink disease of faith clouding their minds. But they were numerous, and more unified in their thought, making them an acceptable choice, though they still brought tension and conflict with the Fundamentalists… The Fundamentalists were similar in size to the Moderates, and held similar views. But there was a more strict narrative and singularly focused in their views. They tolerated no deviation nor discussion of their official doctrine. Their rule would ensure a consistent narrative of the faith, even if twisted by the plague of faith. The Moderates often feared them, and help views close enough that Fundamentalist communities often subsumed them. These factors made the Fundamentalists the optimal choice.

They would effectively encompass the views of the majority of HER Children, leaving but a small number that would be insufficient to destroy the city in civil war. Their rigid adherence to their doctrine and intolerance of deviation would ensure another split would not occur. Their zealous devotion to technology and MEKHANE would mean a society dedicated to HER truths and her reconstruction, even if still plagued by THE FLESH.

But choosing them would subject Their people to a harsh authoritarian rule, and many would be purged as the Fundamentalist lbs assumed control. But this may not be bad, in the end this could create a more unified people, singly dedicated to HER reconstruction. Even if they did not fully understand HER truths, once HER reconstruction was brought about it would be inconsequential. SHE would purify their bodies and minds, and thus they would understand their wrongs and realize the divine truth. All those sacrificed to achieve this Gnosis would thus not be in vain. In the end, the Good would be maximized. The ends would justify the means.

And so The Shepherd backed the Fundamentalists, declaring that they and they alone preached the truth of MEKHANE, and that the rest preached misguided heresy at best and FLESH-corrupted heathenry at worst. Many thus rallied to the Fundamentalist’s cause, and they gained many converts from the rival denominations, as The Shepherds choosing had stripped all legitimacy from the other denominations, until only those wrapped by FLESH remained within them. Those that did not convert were silenced by the inquisitors of the Fundamentalists, and through blood and fire a unified church was reborn.

As The Shepherd predicted, the Fundamentalists ruled with an iron fist, silencing those who would question their doctrine and taking the words of The Shepherd as unquestionable gospel. They aimed to erase all traces they saw of THE FLESH from Amoni-Ram. This in their eyes required totalitarian rule, a constant presence of an Inquisition to stamp out any heresy and draconian laws that banned things as simple as music and gardening. This created a strictly regimented city, in which The Shepherd could exert ultimate control, could better guide and was singularly focused on the reconstruction of MEKHANE. The means were bloody, and the FLESH yet ran rampant throughout the city, now rooted at the deepest levels, in the minds of the Blessed-Councilors who foolishly thought themselves pure and logical. Yet if they were able to reconstruct the Divine Machine, this corrupted could yet be banished. The Shepherd could only hope this could be achieved, before the bloodlust of the Fundamentalists, the corruption of their FLESH, brought about their downfall, just as it had the Ancient Mekhanites.

The sun beat down on a group of underequipped and hungry college students. They were told by the Archivist himself that this would be a “Compelling research foray into the advanced mechanisms of corrupting class III artefacts of chaos.” As always, the fae never technically lied. They would be doing important research. After a bloody conflict and subsequent sacking was completed. The old crone would have done well to at least supply the bunch with

“Mohandes Azar….when will we be there” says a young student of about 23, dripping with sweat.

A withered old man riding a mechanical horse looked at the ragged student with barely masked amoursness. “Oh my dear Priya, we should be there in a few weeks...that is where we are joining up with the flessi spearhead for the invasion.”

Priya shuddered at the old man. This entire outing was a mistake. The Archivist spun a grand tale of summer adventure with friends, and a solid thesis for any future academic papers. The academic accolades alone from this outing would be worth it to a desperate enough doctoral candidate. But unfortunately, Priya was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. This was the first time her, or really any of the students had felt anything close to suffering. They didn’t have their nice AC. No fine wines at the snap of finger. Their backsides were sore from riding the machines of burden, and those foolish enough to dress scantily were already sunburned several times over.

Worst of all was their travelling companions. The Masked Zealots were an odd bunch among the normal denizens of fae controlled settlements. Most were more akin to drug addicts, hooked on fae power. In their eyes, the fae could do no wrong. The fae were gods among men. They spoke very little, and secreted a bloodred sweat- much like hippos in the wild do. Unfortunately for the scholars, they also reeked to high heaven. Imagine the scent of a highschool locker room amplified by a factor of 50.


Each step Zestari took was agony. It was as though each leg had “fallen asleep” for a few hours, and then the electrical sensation was amplified several times over. His mouth hung slack, and his mind went numb after the first week. Black sludge drooled from his mouth. He felt more like an animal than an intelligent creature- mindlessly trudging through muck and sunlight.

He just wanted quiet. Peace and quiet. The Hippo-Masked were stalwart and stoic, breaking branches and stomping the occasional wolf to pulp when needed. The reavers were silent as well, only occasionally chuckling to themselves at some unseen joke. But the students? Damn the students. They wouldn’t shut up. Good times create weak men.

One day, a student broke down sobbing when the group had set up camp for the night. He was a gaunt young man with horrible sunburn on his neck. “This is really happening, we’re going to see a war. I’m so hungry. I’m so tired and thirsty all the time. How can anyone live like this? We’re all going to die. There’s only 60 of us, we don’t stand a chance against an entire empire.” A few of the more compassionate students approached him, and tried to salve his wounds. “Divrat it’s ok” says Priya as she ran a cool washcloth over his face. She grabbed a canteen with water and held it up to Divrat’s lips. He yelled and smacked the canteen away. “I don’t want any more of your fucking water. I want to go home.”

Priya’s face flushed. “I’m just trying to help. This is hard, but it’s worse when you’re bitching all the time.”

“Yea? I’m sure it’s real hard for you screw your way to a degree while the rest of us had to put in years of work. I see how the Mohandes looks at you” screams Divrat as he gets up, face reddened.

Priya recoiled at his words. “I study just as hard as you” she fired back.

While the two bicker, Zestari sighed. He knew this would eventually happen. The male was likely suffering from sun poisoning and was delirious as a result. Frankly, the entire group needed varying degrees of medical treatment at this point. He walked over to the group as his grinning reavers flanked him. He would just tell them to calm down and give them medical treatment. Simple. Zestari opened his mouth to speak, but words failed to come out. The two students stopped yelling as what was essentially a demigod approached them.

Zestari, puzzled, attempted to speak again. This time a low tone emitted from his maw, and a garbled collection of profane and ancient languages tumbled from his mouth. Divrat fell on his behind, and Priya began to back away with her hands raised.

The ancient elk shook his head. This couldn’t be happening. One of the reavers put his hand on Zestari’s flank. “I think what the old man is trying to tell you is to suck it up and calm down.”

The other reaver chuckled. “Aww what’s wrong? Your little sheltered bodies can’t handle a little sun?” He mimed crying with his free hand, while the other hand hefted his impressive axe over his shoulder.

Priya shoots back. “We’re marching with a war convoy through the summer heat. Cut us some slack dickhead. Or would you rather we leave the scythe uncontained? Wonder what that would do to this NICE, MEATY ARMY” she yelled, grabbing the attention of many resting Masked Zealots.

The chuckling reaver dropped his jovial demeanor immediately. “Don’t talk to us like that, fleshbag. We’re so far above you it’s not even funny.”

Zestari’s head snapped to the reaver, and this time he spoke in a high pitched chorus of many different voices. The skeletal half was facing the reaver, its dead eye locked with another. “Don’t you dare think you have the prerogative to speak on our behalf, wretch. Do so again, and I’ll scatter your soul to the lowest circle of Shugoreth.” Zestari coughed black bile on the floor, and his non-skeletal face looked to the students. He spoke in his normal voice. “Apologies. I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather recently. What I was trying to say was that the male is suffering from sun poisoning. He’s delirious. We need to get you all medical care right now, and fashion sun cloaks while it’s night. I’m sorry the Archivist didn’t fully prepare you for this, I will be having a long talk with him when we get back.” Zestari took a deep breath, as a silence hung in the air. Many were clinging to Zestari’s every word- trying to decipher the strange behavior. “I will do everything I can so that you all make it back alive. You have my word as a fae lord.” He stumbled off as he called in old fae for medical personnel to evaluate the students.

Some time later, Divrat was given a fluid infusion and nutrient paste. The university students gathered around a calm fire. Wounds were healed by expert field medics, and the tension of the group was greatly alleviated by this development. “Hey Priya...I’m really sorry about what I said back there. The sun just got to me.”

She nodded her head. The words still stung. “I’m hurt that you think of me like that. I worked hard to get to where I am, just like you and the others.”

Divrat started to stammer. “W-well it was just the sun...I didn’t know what I was saying. H-ha. So what about that Zestari guy? Pretty fucked up right? The Mohandes said he was speaking in a dead language and talking about some fucked up stuff.”

“He’s probably just stressed right now. I’ve never heard of a fae this strong leading from the front like this. I should thank him for earlier.”
