  1. It is weird because as a "proper" government they can claim legally they hold the entire set of islands under their territory. Whether or not they can actually enforce that is the question, but the same can be said with the North as well. In order to keep us from breaking the islands again via war would be peaceful brokerages of land being bought. That way everyone wins.
  2. What if we purchased the land from the original government? That way it's more of a business transaction than a murky view of who has what authority.
  3. The others were brought to the room, where Illyana waited, holding the letter in her hands, trying to discern who the author might be. She was more than certain this was who had taken Riha, and the priestess was determined to find him. "Thank you for responding to my plea for help. As you know, my friend, Riha Cathrage, was kidnapped sometime ago." She sighed, holding back the deep dismay she felt at her absence, praying dearly to Gaia that she was okay. "Currently my knights are trying to ascertain who had done this, as we have learned our own staff allowed the predator to enter into our midst. Punitive actions are already underway..." As if to punctuate this statement, a cry of pain shot through the halls of the castle, painting a gruesome picture of what was being doled out to those who had betrayed the noble house. Handing them the letter, she gave everyone a chance to look at it. "R.T. is the name of the person who wrote that, And I believe they has committed this crime. If you know who this might be, any information would be helpful, but ultimately, I will need your help in the pursuit as well. We can't risk wasting anymore time than we have to-" "My lady!" Interrupted one of the knights, Sir Redford, as he burst through the room. "One of the servants talked. He was paid off by the culprit, and he says the man left the castle with Lady Riha wrapped in a carpet, heading for the docks!" "Have the horses ready immediately, we will ride for the docks post haste, and hopefully catch them before they leave." Looking to the others while the knight left to make preparations, she motioned for them to follow her while walking to the courtyard. "We will speak with the dock master, and he will tell us who had come in under these initials, and where they are headed. I am sorry for not being able to be more formal, truly, but time is of the essence." Her heart thundered with fear, the hope inside of her clinging onto the possibility that Riha was still okay. If she wasn't, she simply didn't know what she would do.
  4. "Yes, these worms were an insult to what it means to be an enemy." The corpses burning on the ground behind him weren't nearly as strong as Cain. He wasn't even as strong as Cain, he would never be as strong... Stop it! He scolded himself, shaking away the bad thoughts, his fists tightening in anger. Even the sweet taste of victory was nothing but ashes in his mouth because of that bastard, because of all of them. Stalking off from the scene of battle, they continued to search for the location of the legendary Sunlight Sword. The whisp lead them into what looked to be a cavern, carved from the fallen skeletons of once mighty buildings of the clock work city. "So this is where it lies..."
  5. Ah yes, House Uldwar at the top, just as I've always wanted them to be. ?
  6. Sounds like a fun party to crash ?
  7. One coming towards him, the other coming from behind, both wanting to defeat him, but will find only defeat in response. Lancelot intended on showing them the error of their ways, through the harsh defeat of battle. Anoint me with the Strength of Champions! They were nearly upon him now, both fighters coming in fast. Powerful, deadly, but also unable to stop before it was too late. As psychic energy filled his body once more, he jumped to the side, just as both opponents were within ten feet of him, now on a collision course for each other. This however would not be the last of his actions... With one fluid movement, he slashed outward towards the two, extending the range of his Divinity Blade to make up for his distance from the others as he landed just eight feet west of their position. Bracing himself, he put his full weight attacking from the right, counting on the Goliath hitting the dragon woman, thus sending her straight into his blade. If it all went well, then she would be cleaved in twain by the sheer strength of both forces acting upon her.
  8. For someone who has lived as Gabriela had, Jericho did not find it surprising how difficult she found trying to learn the ancient art of the Arcane. Before the spectacular events that lead to his founding of his noble house, Jericho did not care much for magic, opting more to trust in his own hands than the wizardry of the strange men who prowled the courts of kingdoms past. Now it was absolutely imperative that she learn, for the sake of the prophecy, and the lives that hang in the balance. Today they were working upon trying to make plants go through their entire life cycle within only a few moments, but Gabriela was having difficult time of it. He could tell that she found it difficult to deliver death, finding life had a more palatable taste to it. Jericho could not blame her for such a preference, but now was not the time for such trivialities. "I can't do this." "Yes you can." He said. "You have the power, all you need is the will." His patience was infinite, which helped in tutoring his fledgling student. With the amount of power she had inside of herself, she shouldn't have this much trouble, he thought, or perhaps there was something more to it... "I can't push it forward to its end. I can't make the flower decay." "Just try. Even the simplest of spells require practice." Even if it took years, he will always try to teach her the ways of magic as best as he knew how. "Don’t think about is as good or evil, that’s not the difference we have here between light or dark. Think more along the rules of nature. Life thrives within light, flowers bloom and grow. But the darkness -- it is a fertile landscape for what must rot and decay. It is not a matter of choice, rather it is simply the way things are.” Nature was a never ending cycle of life and death, uncaring in the face of morality or convenience. Surely that would be what helped her get through this obstacle. Alas, it was not enough, and in the end, they did indeed stop with the lesson. What was even worse was that in her rush to get cleanes, she had harmed herself, causing droplets of black blood to slip away into the pot holding the flower. Had Jericho noticed this, he would have made sure to destroy the plant. "As you wish, Your Grace. We can continue the lesson another time. My condolences towards your plight with your son." Standing to leave, he looked to her, milky white eyes betraying nothing. "If there is any way I can help with that, please let me know. I live again to serve you, my Queen."
  9. Look I really want to bring back Henry, as well as put some dwarves into this because everything is better when you put dwarves in it.
  10. A new chapter for Uldwar, one with recovery and all sorts of crazy stuff.

    Time will tell

    It felt as if the end was already coming for him and his house. To separate would ensure their destruction, and to stay will also mean their eventual destruction. There was no way to fix the damage done by what his father and his sister did. Perhaps it would be best to move on, and let the world be a better place without the Uldwar family in it...
  12. Godric's gonna join Varda in her whole thing. I'll have it up today during my lunch break.
  13. After realizing they would find no shelter here, the faction soldiers cursed the family and went on their way, hoping to find a better place for their wounded. From then on the battle continued, until the sounds of fighting faded minutes later. The battle was over, but the aftermath... It was amazing how there weren't any bodies out on the streets. Whether it meant no one had died, or the different factions had taken their dead with them, no one could know for certain. The trolley was destroyed entirely, riddled with crossbow bolts in some places, melted in others and in small places you could see where a magical spell had entirely destroyed a section. Blood, feathers, scales and fur lay in all kinds of piles throughout the street. Patrols of Guardias, official policemen of the state, were trying to understand what had happened to cause such a violent outburst in the streets. Those they did talk to were clearly caught in the crossfire, sporting wounds of their own, but otherwise unwilling to talk. Going against any of the factions was usually a very bad idea. Two officers approached the store, wanting to speak with anyone that might have witnessed it. They wore golden armor and red cloth underneath. "Excuse me? We are hoping to try and understand what happened here? Did you see anything?"
  14. Two came towards Lancelot, one woman and one man, each very large, very deadly, but not insurmountable. For every challenge there was a solution, and in that solution, came victory. Without further delay, he imbued himself with the power that lay within him, activating the Emblem of Providence. Bestow upon me, Erudite Swiftness! Psychic energy swirled around his very body, granting him the speed he desired, and he was ready to make his first move against the two opponents. Running forward at even greater speeds than them, it would appear as if he were going to engage them head on. Truthfully though, that was the farthest thing from the truth. Just as the gap between them was closing at just ten feet, Lancelot made a shift and directed his blade upon the grass. With twice the speed of a normal man, Lancelot was able to circumvent the two, as well as begin to leave a train of fire where the Divinity Blade met with the grass. They could give chase, but that would require braving the fire he left in his wake. If they wanted to team up on him, then he would do everything he could to make it difficult for them. Sooner or later they will slip, and Lancelot will be there to make sure it is the last mistake they ever make.
  15. Every journey begins with a single step, every legend, a choice, and every warrior, a battle. On this day, my legend will become greater than before, and they will know the name of Lancelot. Standing upon the verdant ocean of the Infinite Meadows, the warrior stood poised, ready for battle. In this, he awaited his opponent, his mind a resting monument of control and temperance. To lose oneself to their baser emotions is to admit defeat before the clash had even begun. For Lancelot, losing was never an option, and so he stood, in full control of himself, awaiting the moment when his enemy arrived. In both hands he clutched the Divinity Blade, a soft hum emanating from the beam the hilt projected, bathing Lancelot in a soft, blue light. This will be his weapon that paves the way for his legend to unfold. Many warriors wielded magnificent weapons, and this was no different. As iconic as the cape which fluttered softly in the breeze, this sword will be his means of ending those who believe themselves to be the de facto greatest in all of Valucre. They will be here in just a moment. Soon, we will see who is the superior warrior, and who will lay upon the ground dead.
  16. Setting: Daytime, Land of Infinite Meadows Combatants: Lancelot, The Godslayer(@Infernal) and Nocturna (@The North Wind) A new challenger appears to join the fight! Lag-Nor enters the fray, played by @SteamWarden Rules: Ultimate Fighting Ruleset, as detailed by the user @amenities And so it begins...
  17. Everything she saw was bringing her closer to the edge of madness, her body shaking with intense trepidation at going further. Throughout all of this, however, she wasn't deterred in trying to extract what mysteries she could from this, her own curiosity keeping her grounded. "Whoever you are...even you have secrets..." It was a physical strain just to try and look at the tower, but look she did. "And I want them..." Animal hunger drove her forward, a hunger for knowledge, especially the kind that she wasn't allowed to know. All her life people have been taking from her, whether it's her own secrets, her dignity or her life itself. That was why she was so adamant in doing her own taking. The harder the voice tried to keep her away from the tower, the more she wanted to get there and plunder it of its secrets. "You can't stop me." She said, looking for some way to cross the water. There had to be a bridge or rocks, anything to get her to that tower. Wind whipped her hair, the sea sprayed her body, but onwards she went, determined to give this...this thing the middle finger.
  18. Can I also make a tribe of surfing Bugbears for Vanora?
  19. Setting: Tazarek, mid afternoon, cloudy day. Objective: Establish trade within Tazarek to Port Caelum, allowing for an opportunity to advance diplomatic ties via trade. Difficulty level: C @Akako Akari And so the story begins... ...It was going to have to be me, Mozcrag thought to himself, stepping through the heavy gates of Tazarek to the interior of the city. Out of all the people in the court, the one with the best shot at making this deal happen was the dwarf, and it was a frustrating notion. He had hoped to get back here with more to his name than simply the chancellor, but he could not refuse when given the order. A deal with a country as prosperous and industrious as Tazarek would be a truly beneficial one to have in your corner. "Greetings, Mozcrag Blasthammer." The voice was one the dwarf knew, but had hoped would not be here at all, or at best just be dead. "Hello Derkolimin Dwed, it is good to see you." Speaking through the Dwarven tongue made it appear more formal, Mozcrag felt a boulder lodged in his stomach, just waiting to crush him. Dwed was one of the biggest and most influential business dwarves in the city, as well as its biggest crime lord. "Now I hear you're having a big meeting with some of my assosciates, but you didn't bother to invite me. That hurts, Mozcrag, right in my heart." He made am exaggerated expression of clutching at his chest, then laughing as he knew Mozcrag wasn't going for the joke. "So how about I give you a ride there in my personal carriage." "Th-thank you, Derkolimin, for the offer. It would be nice to make it there a little early." After getting clapped upon the back, he climbed in after Dwed into his carriage, and they proceeded to a large building in the First Level, where the meeting was to be held. Unfortunately for Mozcrag, things had shifted from a simple meeting, to something that could be the difference between life and death.
  20. "There are wild boars in Ursa Madeum, and then there are the Mok'Tar'Gak. Gaia help you if you meet one of those things on your own."
  21. Well Kholin because of their desire to remove them from power for the small crime of actually going out and doing stuff in the world, and Dali because they're apparently buddy buddy with the snooty tooty mcfruities. Also that reminds me I need to finalize Godric divorcing Evienne Goldcourt as well since that's not really going anywhere.
  22. Oh all right fine, I'll play ball. We'll elect the monarch, deal with the Oathblades then go out for ice cream or something. I'll just figure out some other way of being the shittiest person in the room.
  23. They pounced from the shadows. Several savage, mindless things that craved blood, and were looking to acquire it from them. Frustration and anger flooded his every being as yet another distraction was keeping him from his prize. "I grow tired of being interrupted by vampires!" With rage boiling he roared in anger, the fire within him burning bright. Roaring with fiery passion, the titanic tyrant sent forth a great wave of flames to consume the undead. Screeching voices filled the air, and two of the vampires were killed instantly, with the others still alive, if not scorched a great deal. While they writhed on the ground, Feurerkonig approached, an ax in each hand, ready to tear them limb from limb. "I am going to take great pleasure in hacking away each one of your limbs!"
