A Bright Flame Is Extinguished

A fire burned tonight upon the Moei Mound, though its light paled in comparison to the lost life it symbolizes.

Ornith’s Funeral Pyre at the Moei Mound

The denizens of Eyr said goodbye to one of their own tonight; Ornith fell in a skirmish Monday night with Ebon Reach. To honor her life and memory, a pyre was constructed, and the shell that had once held the bright soul was cremated.

 

Ornith was many things to all of us – friend, mentor, beloved, wife, and Myan. Her calm demeanor diffused many tense moments, and her wisdom and caring oft times brought out the better side of those she spent time with.

It was hard not to like the quiet cleric, and so it is with heavy hearts that we gathered to wish her farewell.

The Moei Asing are not left completely leaderless, as Khanya Silongo and Juni Gynn will be doing their best to keep the faction going. Juni, representing the two Verdicts at the funeral, informed those gathered that she and Khanya will be filling in until Ame chooses another leader for the faction. She also issued a statement that, until further notice, anyone swearing fealty to the imp of Ebon Reach will not be welcome in Tilikambo.

Azifix Awakens!

azifix-awakens

Azifix Called Forth in Anger

Anyone who remembers the tale of Azifix and Ohm would know better than to awaken those dragons.

The crazy lady in the tunnel – I tried to tell her that.  She claimed she was the Myan.  I don’t believe her.  Clearly an impostor as I have seen the Myan.  It was back when she was first chosen.  This woman looked nothing like her.  This fake Myan acted as if she had been sampling nightcaps, liberty caps, gold caps… something like that.   Her songs and chants were the start of it. That is what drew me into the cavern.  I could hear her chanting even as I passed by the tunnel entrance on Mt. Azifix.  Crazy she might have been but there was no lack of power in her voice.

More gathered as I tried to reason with her.  Though I could not tell you who they were. None were familiar and who as time to look around when there’s a dragon waking up?  The tunnel was shaking.  Rocks were falling.  Lava was spraying.  Brainsick lady just kept on chanting. People kept filing into the tunnel ignoring all the commotion.  This was crazy like a mystfolk party.  Only mystfolk ain’t bad crazy.  Mystfolk are good crazy..

Azifix rose.  I don’t know what else happened in the tunnel as I ran out.  Azifix was the one known for the fiery temper. Ohm, she was the more sensible of the two if you ask me. But I could hear her cries from Mt. Ohm while I was still running down the mountain.

I could see and hear Azifix’ rage as he circled the mountain.  His screams and calls went on all night long.  My herd went fleeing.  Angry dragon is a vengeful and hungry thing.  But the deed has been done.  Ohm is awake too.  We could hear her cries.  She did not take to the air as far as I could tell but there was a large blackness on the top of Mt. Ohm that moved.  I did not have to see it up close to know it is her.

clovisI am a bard and what I say is true.  I saw these things.  I shall tell the tale.

The Mists & Signs of things to come

These happenings are not natural, they speak of some dark magic perhaps or the ill tidings of a battle between unseen forces, the gods. Gods of misfortune clearly.  For those who have suffered from the depravity of the mists, including myself, we will suffer the scars for years to come.  The darkness that mingles with the benign vestige of a delicate fog.  The turmoil that leeches into a person’s mind.  The hunger suffered by those who answer the mists calling.  These are terrible things. Outrageous marks upon our good realm.  Upon Ame’s good people and their allies.  

31042311036_53576b36d8_o

I cannot say for certain, yet, what has caused these things to be.  I work on the problem diligently.  I give thanks to the Mother goddess for releasing me from slavery to the mists.  I cannot yet put into words what I felt, saw and heard in the mists and their whispering.  Perhaps I may never, for I would rather forget than to delve deeply into such darkness.  I would not pretend that there is some goodness in these strange occurrences, the red hued mists stalking the people of the realm, forcing them into servitude to feed its own hunger, or at the very least, people becoming so disillusioned from dark hallucinations that they truly believe this to be! I saw, even through the fog, fire and ice, threatening to rip apart the very land.  Lightning strikes dancing about the jungle floor, taking down trees and startling the wildlife.  The animals shrieking in horror and scattering or attacking those who dare come too close.  

I believe these things to be signs and portents of a darkness yet to come.  Turning creature against creature.  Dragons carrying off the injured, warrior attacking warrior, driders sworn to our protection becoming endangered themselves, talk of the entire village taken refuge up in the crystal and myconid caves of Mt Ohm.  Yet, this news frightened me! The mists descended from the high reaches of Mt Ohm! If the land is cleansed of its evil, it may retreat back to whence it came, leaving the villagers in grave danger.  

Yes, the cleansing came upon us.  I believe it is upon us even now.  The ice creaked, reaching out with snowy tendrils and the fire spread, scorching the land. The Mother goddess, Ame Moei, willed to no longer tolerate this scourge upon her creation.  She drew justice down upon us all.  The gods who threaten this realm will not be allowed to continue their terror upon us. Ame Moei saw the sacrifice was finished and brought upon us the cleansing rains. Right order will be restored to the land. I write this to you now that you may realize later what has happened. Be warned of the retreating flood waters and see fit to prepare yourselves for greater storms to come.

Ku’vesi Stone Healed! The Birth of Healing Waters

 

kuvesti-stone-event-articleThe Ku’vesi Stone is healed!  The healing powers it contains now contained and protected.  Eyr is no longer in danger!

ornith-and-ice

Myan Ornith

Talisae Theodosia and Myan Ornith’s resolve to heal the Ku’vesi Stone and restore healing waters to Eyr came together Sunday.  This is a day I will long remember for I have heard the voice of the Mystfolk Stones, the roar of Ku’vari, and the voice of Yue.  And all of this amidst a whirling snowstorm in the center of the Jungle.

Ornith’s theory proved true.  Extreme cold worked to suppress Ku’vari’s magics so that the pieces could be brought together.  The healing ceremony took place within the perimeter of the Myst Mound amidst a swirl of ice and snow.  The crackling feeling of power in the air was second only to the biting cold emanating from the ice beneath my feet.

The Mystfolk spirits Delanis and Delaris accepted the offerings of blood and water. Indeed, it was their powers as foretold that worked to heal the Ku’vesi stone.  Each of the Mystfolk ancient spirits then spoke out in turn to herald the event.

“Our task is done  … the Ku’vesi Stone is whole, the pieces are one!
And now, purge the nearby pools of their mundane taint!
Make them something more, something not seen in Eyr before!
Heal those hurt in their time of need!
But first, into the pools, you must plant this stony seed!
And from the burden of misery shall they be freed!
This is what must be done, so it has been decreed.”

As the fragments boomed together, the Talisae’s eyes began to glow an icy blue  and her voice rang out with all the authority of Yue as she spoke directly to Ku’vari.  The serpent’s spirit was wound protectively about the Stone as it was bore toward the pond.

theo-kuvesi-stone

Talisae Theodosia – Yue

The great serpent roared and the air all but vibrated as Yue spoke directly to Ku’vari.

“My son, I summon you to return to your post as once before! Protect this stone and these waters from anything that may usurp its powers and its purpose.”

“Bring the injured, the pool is ready to do its bidding.”

With that final proclamation people began to move toward the ponds to test it against wounds both recent and new.  Mahan’s injuries showed much improvement though it was readily apparent the healing process did take it’s toll.

There is much to be learned of the healing pools’ strength.  A god’s gift must not be taken lightly.  We must learn how to use this gift.  But I am hopeful of the possibilities.

A Call to Arms as a Threat from the Sea Approaches

Two of the Ku’vesi stone fragments have been collected and a third travels by water toward Eyr.  How and when it shall arrive is anyone’s guess.  The only certainty is that it does approach and the feeling is that it is being borne by a fierce sea creature under its’ compulsion.  The stone fragments themselves seem to call to each other.  

talisae-theodosia_001

Talisae Theodosia

Talisae Theodosia met with Juni, Myan Ornith, and Blanche to discuss concerns regarding the third Ku’vesi stone fragment and the warnings involving a sea creature approaching Eyr’s shores.  Ornith’s consciousness speaking through the manifestation of butterflies while the Myan’s body lies inert within the Medica.  

“We will need as much power to defeat this beast. I will also offer tribute to Yue so she may give me enough strength. We have a lot to do, my friends. Let us see it in action today. We have no time to spare.  I will give fair warning of the beasts proximity to Eyr, you can trust me in that” – Talisae Theodosia

The dire words of warning both from Myan Ornith and Talisae Theodosia mean we must go to action immediately.  Eyr citizens must be prepared for the ‘Deepers call for aid.  This danger poses a threat to us all.  It is in hopes that the Moei Asing, Stormstead and even the underground members of Ebon Reach may reach out to helpl.  For the danger is real to all of us should the stones unite without control.  Deepers patrol the waters and will let us know when we are needed.  We MUST be prepared.

talisae-theodosia-2_001

Talisae Theodosia, Blanche, Juni, and Ornith-of-the-Butterflies

Gather your weapons.  Great spears and axes.  Landers should prepare their boats.  For the rest of you who can take the battle to the sea, don your armor and sharpen your weapons. The creature is large and the Talisae cautioned that the hide would be thick and the battle bloody.

Prepare for Battle!

Second Ku’vesi Stone Fragment Recovered!

An alligator vanquished and the second of the Ku’vesi stone fragments recovered!

Serpent dreams, journal entries, and gut instincts coalesced and drove the Asing forward on Saturday as they began to make their way toward the swamp.  Their goal:  To find and recover the missing Ku’vesi Stone fragment.  As their journey progressed through Eyr they picked up followers of all rank and race as curiosity about the stone fragments and the desire to assist rose to the fore.  Talisae Theodosia and members of Ku’vari’s Deep were waiting their arrival.

alligator-boss-fight1The alligator’s battle was fierce and the water frothy with blood and detritus from the great beast’s thrashings.  The creature continued to bellow and lash out even as as more reinforcements arrived to assist the Asing.  The swampwaters glowed red with blood and the setting sun as the final blow descended.  Relative newcomer to Eyr but no stranger to the swamp, Aundr, leaped aboard the beast and wrapped himself around to deliver the final death blow.  Himself the victim of a series of misfired arrows, Aundr stands to gain many fine pairs of boots for his efforts.

The ferocity of the battle to overtake the beast was such that several were gravely wounded, including Myan Ornith herself who remains unconscious within the Medica.  More still were wounded as the second of the Ku’vesi stone fragments was found.  The ensuing wave of energy threw many to the ground and those closest to the blast or to the Myan herself found the effects lasting.    

Myan Ornith recovers in the Medica thanks to the quick thinking actions of Dar’kuss.   The drow scooped her from the swamp and carried her to safety.  Several other drifted to the Medica for assistance but all were able to walk away after superficial treatment received.  

Talisae Theodosia is in possession of the two Ku’vesi Stone Fragments and is studying them for a solution.  Where is the third stone?  The maps indicate the water off Eyr’s shore – but who can tell.  But more importantly, the shockwave that ripped through the swamp as the fragments were brought closer together – this poses a serious problem.  How are we to bring the pieces together for healing? Should we expect similar shockwaves or even larger if the third fragment is found and brought near?  Are these things we seek going to ultimately destroy us?  

The Asing and the Deepers continue to forge ahead in the belief the stone can be brought together and healed.  We can only hope that they can solve it before this final piece of the stone is found.

A Journal Page is Found – Talk of a Mysterious Ku’vesi Stone

Fire from the sky, portents of dark waters, a stone fragment with mysterious markings, and a journal page  from an ancient witch.  Coincidence?  I think not.

Below is an accounting from Mistress Mudbolt, the ancient witch who founded the Crone’s Eye.  This diary entry describes an encounter which may help explain the mysterious stone fragment which was found as the Asings and Deepers worked to drive back the wolf pack.   The information loosely confirms what Myan Ornith and Talisae Theodosia have uncovered.  And it appears that this fragment is just the beginning.  There may be more pieces of this stone about the island.

I present this to you out of a sense of responsibility to provide as much information as possible about what is happening around us.   Use the clues as you may and interpret how you will.


Journal Entry Page (Parchment that appeared from Grainie Mudbolt’s diary.)

Mistress Mudbolt, Founder of Crone’s Eye

I have never cared for the frivolous babble of the Merfolk.  Vain and stupid creatures.  The dying fool would have told me anything to get my help.  Babbling and wounded as she was, I gave her no heed at first.  She knew her time limited with the scent of her own blood heavy and thick in the air.  Her hair as green as the moss I was collecting.  Her eyes were a large pupiless green.  Those eyes!  How I wish I had those eyes!  My own burn and water with the knowledge of what is to come.  But my plans and fate have already been set into motion.

I don’t remember her name.  This Sea Witch.  Don’t remember if she even gave it to me.  She babbled unceasingly as I packed her wounds in seaweed, though I knew the efforts to be pointless.  I was already speculating on what use I would make of her hair and scales when she focused and grew still.  Eyes hardening she lay panting as she stared back at me.  I could feel the slow leaching of power as her illusion receded.  The last to appear were her eyes – eyes as ancient as my own.  All signs of earlier babble gone.  Her hair hung in thick plaits wrapped in seaweed and interwoven with shells etched with her serpent god runes.  These markings, as well as the scarring on arms and upper body, revealed her as a Sea Witch. One of the ancients within the Merfolk.

It was then she began to talk.  Her time was over and she already knew it.  Had seen it as surely as I had seen my own.  

kuvesi-stone-fragmentsShe called it the Sinking Stone.  Ku’vesi.  A plain grey stone worn smooth by the rasp of the serpent god’s scales.  It had lain for centuries within the serpent’s den, silently collecting and absorbing the excess energies and powers of Ku’vari. It held the powers of healing, these abilities stretching out to the waters that surrounded it.  They told a tale of how the Stone had been broken into three pieces when hurled from the ocean in a great underwater eruption.  This Sea Witch had found a fragment of this stone.  Even told me of where the remaining pieces may still lie undiscovered.  But, here’s the rub.  The Stone had been corrupted in the breaking.  The powers contained within now volatile and unpredictable.  The Stone piece she had sought to obtain had caused the very wounds which were now killing her.  I should not make this same mistake.  Though, I fear time will not allow.  

Her hate-filled eyes watched me, but I paid her no further mind.  The information was now mine, and I committed it all to memory, even as I committed it to parchment.  According to the Witch, the stone shards would glow and pulse with energies on the nights when Yue’s light drew the tides most strongly.  Those familiar with the effects of magic would feel the power in the air surrounding the Stone pieces, but even those unused to it could recognize the vibrating pulse in the air around the piece.  The old Witch’s parting words to me were of caution.  The power is wild and erratic.  I can tell by the look of her that it is the stone fragment that most likely killed her.   Interesting….

I sketched out a map of the island and dropped down shells onto the blood reddened sand to mark the possible locations.  The moon came up even as I sat studying the map and brooding over the information.  The Sea Witch’s eyes grew sightless, and the tide eventually carried her back out, but not before I had gathered her hair, claws, and scales.  For those items, I would have need as she no longer would.  The sea takes care of its own.  And now, I have work to do to complete my own plans.  But, time is short, and I will have to take care to hide my notes where my rival would not think to look.  And as for the stone fragments I have some time left.  I may be able to find one and leave it with Henry.  I laugh at the thought of a siren attempting her wiles upon him!  I shall wait for opportunity to drop this information.  See if they take the bait.  For if I am able to bend fate to my will, I will be allowed that much.  The potential is there if fools dare to try.  At least if it doesn’t kill them first.

Deepers called to Asing Aid! Battle on Mt. Azifix!

wolf-battle-1

Wolf bodies litter the ground as the battle rages.

The sound of howls echoing up and down Kuvari Canyon kept many awake.  There was a feeling of unrest in the air.  And as it turns well founded.  A great battle took place near the high mountain lakes of Mt. Azifix.  The Moei Asing encampment was attacked by a wolfpack.  This same wolfpack that had been harassing and attacking the Asing people for over a week and injuring the Myan herself.

When watching the battle it seemed at first a case of animal bloodlust .  But it became evident that there was more at stake than what appeared at the surface. A spiritual battle was taking place as well.  Myan Ornith and Juni battled against the spirits driving the wolves even as the Asing and Deeper warriors battled the beasts.  The mood of the night was one of determination for they had to succeed.

wolf-battle-2

Juni and Myan Ornith Battle Spirits with Storytelling

Juni stood out.  I saw her, the glowing brightly.  She was telling a story.   Though hard to tell who she was speaking to as the battle raged around her.  I heard familiar names, Yue and Ame, but I also recall another name… Yang.  He’s their brother and he’s the day star and it seems to me… there’s some family discord.  Though I’ve heard the stories, it’s only come alive for me this night.  Yang felt guilty and wants to make amends.  I didn’t hear how he’s going to do it.  I just know it’ll light up the night sky! Raining fire!  The bright one said so.  The tiny Juni appears both visionary and prophet.  Who else could predict the very skies?

The wolf battle continued to rage during the storytelling as the Asing rallied to protect their Myan.  The Deepers responded in turn with the presence of Talisae Theodosia and Spear Bearer Alithia.  Both showed formidable battle skills though the Talisae herself suffered near-crippling wounds near the end of the battle.   Khanya Silongo, and Writer of the Asings battled fiercely alongside their aquatic allies to win against their foes.  Mahan was present as well as was Symi.  Their battle experience and determination helping assist the Asing in their efforts.   

wolf-battle-3

Deepers Join Force with the Asing!

The battle culminated near a small cave leading deep within the volcano itself.  The wolf threat now eliminated the Myan entered into their shadowed den.  She emerged carrying within the folds of her gown an object that stirred even the Talisae who was wounded to near unconsciousness.  It was evident that the object holds some power or property but there was no time for further exploration as the exhausted and wounded needed care.   The Myan herself helping to heal the Talisae to prevent further blood loss and bring her back to semi-consciousness.   

The spiritual and physical battle over, this should end the wolf threat and set the Asing to rest.  Now is a time for healing and repair.  A battle well fought and hard won.

A Myan’s Demand for Tribute and Rallying Cry for Tilikambo

Myan Ornith

Myan Speaks Out!

First, the Sailing Ship and the atrocity of demanding more from the land than it was willing to give. You’re pleased, I’m certain, that the goddess of this land you desecrate and destroy has chosen to release your ship from the hold of the vines.  Know this: the vines were there first.  They were simply revealed to you as the land cried out against the building of your sailing ship.  

  • You, the village of Stormstead, speak of trade and commerce but you do not understand the consequences of your actions.
  • You, Stormstead, are selfish and tyrannical and would pillage the land for the sake of gold to line your pockets.
  • You, the village of Stormstead, struggle against the land, and desire that it simply give in to your greediness and desire for comfort.  And now, you have  failed to pay tribute to the Mother goddess for the ore that you stole from the mines, as if it were yours to simply take as you pleased.  Your citizens’ excuse is that you sweat and labor to gain your reward.  Life is labor, and to live upon the land is a gift freely given if only you would ask properly.  It is not the Mother goddess who makes you struggle, it is your own ignorance.
  • You, Stormstead, speak of balance, and yet you would destroy that same balance you pretend to understand.  Where is your tribute for the ore?  Where is your tribute for the wood freely given for the sailing ship?  There is nothing but silence when the word of Ame is spoken to you, and yet you offer up excuses without ending whenever your actions are questioned in the slightest.

Do not fear, however; the Myan of the Moei Asing has forgiven the violence done upon her by a sworn citizen of Stormstead.  She would, however, like to know why the village council would send in their stead a dangerous element that may have started a war by her offense.

Why would the council send their craftswoman, a mere citizen of the village, to speak to the Myan when she had no authority to negotiate terms? Is it that the council of the village is without true leadership, without direction, without power?  Squabbling and misdirection over who is in charge of the sailing ship and its construction, and now further offense done to the land by the citizens of the village and their allies by taking from the mines without tribute – these are not marks of peace.  These are not signs of respect.  The Myan fears for the village and her citizens.  Without a governor, they are weak and vulnerable.  And the disparate citizens will soon fall apart in the absence of direction and authority. As the Moei Asing already know for certain, they have no respect for these things. even when they do exist.  

The Myan of the Moei Asing does not take these matters lightly.  For those who would like to negotiate for a place as an ally among the Moei Asing and avoid conflict in the future… she offers you, the despondent citizens and allies of Stormstead, a truce, terms of peace and a way to have whatever you desire from the land.  Simply seek her out at Tilikambo and ask it of her.  She is generous and will aid you in providing you with direction and reward where the council of Stormstead has failed you.
