    Suspicions of High Treason

    As each of the various personalities walked through the door, the room's atmosphere became increasingly heavy. Simply from the aura exuding from each person present, it would be obvious to anyone, even the least observant in Terrenus, that the people in the room were the best in their fields. Hawk watched them enter one by one, standing casually in the room's kitchen with a cooling cup of coffee warming his hands. If there was one thing not even stress or the threat of death could take from him, it was his enjoyment of coffee. The exact type wasn't particularly relevant. It was the caffeine and the warmth. Once the final person found their way into the room, Hawk left the kitchen area and met up with them by the so-called living room, where he sat on pre-placed furniture. The couch was the most comfortable of resting places, but for the purposes of the meeting that wasn't important. He set the cup of coffee down onto the short table before him and then leaned back into his seat, waving for the others to take gather and take or a seat- though he didn't expect all of them to sit. "For now, let me introduce myself. I am Alexander Hawk, a detective with the Federal Investigative Service of Terrenus. I've gathered all of you hear today for a single purpose, but before I get into details, a warning. What I'm about to share with you is extremely sensitive information and is not to be shared with anyone outside of this room. If our knowledge of this information is leaked and reaches the wrong ears, we're all dead. Regardless of who you are and what you are capable of. So, before I begin, do any of you wish to leave?" He waited a little and those who left, left, and those who stayed, stayed. For those who stayed, Hawk pulled out a stack of folders and placed them on the table next to his coffee cup. "Take on and look inside. As of this moment, that is all the information I have. It should explain to you the seriousness of the situation. As the folders were opened and read, those who stayed would find themselves presented with evidence of corruption within F.I.S.T., ranging from illegally releasing criminals to fudged financials to various conspiracies among the echelon with a clear intent at overthrowing the Terrenus Federal Government. "What you see before you is the current evidence I have on hand. It is, however, only the tip of the iceberg. Even though I have proof that these crimes happened, are happening, and will happen, I don't currently have any names as to whom are involved. That's where you all come in. We're going to find those names. Even if it, most likely, stretches beyond F.I.S.T. and into other departments of the military.

    The Red Dawn of Ursa Madeum [4/4]

    The instant upon which his eyes fell to the Tyrant King, all surrounding and peripheral noise and anxieties vanished into the background. It was as if nothing else existed exist the two rulers looking at each other. One staring with fear and hatred, the other with pity and determination. One a king of tyrants, the other a rising emperor. One cowering on the floor with a running nose, the other standing upright with a chin held high. Looking at the two men, there could be no further opposites. "Is this how you thought your life would end, Damien?" Titus asked, standing nonchalantly despite the seriousness of the moment. With a swipe of his blade Titus knocked the gold crown off the depot's head. Instead of a whimper or a sob, the Tyrant King began to cackle like an old man on the verge of insanity. Which, Titus had to admit, was not truly that far from the truth. "It the cycle of life! Good and evil will always balance each other out! You think you are doing something good for the people? HAH!" Damien threw his head back in laughter. "You are only the precursor to even more death and despair than I was! The land of Ursa Madeum was balanced to perfection, you fool. Not that it has an oh so great king at it's helm, what do you think that means? Huh? It means death! Blood! A killing spree! You have no idea the monster you have unleashed by taking the throne from me. I AM THE EVIL THAT BALANCES THE LAND!" Titus didn't respond to the king's insane laughter, nor did he acknowledge the oracle-like prophecy the man spouted. There would always be evil in the word, everyone knew that. But Damien was talking about something else- something definite. Although the Angel-King didn't put any real weight to the Tyrant King's words, neither did he disregard them altogether. Rather he waited to see if Damien would spill anything more other than his guts. "Oh, you want to know, don't you? What evil I'm talking about?" Spittle flew from Damien's lips as his words became increasingly venomous. "You are all fucking dead! No ruler of Ursa Madeum has ever been without at least a trace the Royal Family's blood. And you, so-called Angel-King, have no royal blood in you! Not a drop! You're just a commoner, a peasant meant to die in the ditch but has reached too high. Take the throne! Do it! You will only be unlocking the curse of Ursa Madeum. And then I will watch as each and every one of you perish in an infinite hell without merc-" "Mars, I think he's talked long enough." As the order was given Titus turned around and waved at Mars. "Give him a taste of what it'll be like to burn in hell. Let's show everyone as well. The Emperor didn't bother watching. He knew Mars well enough to know his general would know his order was a command to kill the king and then drag his dead body behind Titus. The moment the Tyrant King died, everyone would know it once the royal knights began to die. After all, Damien had a life-bond with them. An old tradition of kings, long thought to have gone extinct. A thought began to form inside Titus' mind. One that pinned Damien has a simply pawn. But that was a thought for another time. As they made their way outside, Titus directed a fair amount of divine energy to his lungs. His voice boomed across the miles of land that was Andelusia. "Soldier of Andelusia, your fight stops here. The Tyrant-King as fallen, as has the last of Ursa Madeum's royal lineage, regardless of how little King Damien actually had. A new era is upon us. Put down your weapons and surrender. If you do so, you will not be killed or harmed. No one else needs to die."

    What happened to Ataraxy?

    Good question. Okay so, long story short, just finished my last quarter of my undergraduate degree. Graduating this weekend. The final stretch was, uh, a lot of work. To say the least. I'm now starting to pack the house (I'm moving again obviously) and, beginning Monday, I'll be commencing a very strict, self-imposed LSAT prep program over the next 6 months or longer. LSAT prep and physical training will be my sole focus, taking up the majority of my time. It sucks I haven't been able to finish the RPs I'm in as I really enjoy all of them, but, as it stands, I have to prioritize my future endeavors and ambition. If I end up a super-rich and successful lawyer, I'll remember to donate money to Valucre. Get you guys some bonus features lol Concerning Taen, @Csl should be returning soon so, if @supernal gives the thumbs up, I'll be moving BL powers to her on a temporary basis. Or permanently, if it turns out I simply don't return. I'd also like to bump @danzilla3 up to co-board leader if that's possible. Perhaps my final request will be for the last thread of UM's invasion be completed, even if I'm not there to finish it. Jill can step in for Titus' posts if she's up for it if need be. That thread man. Literally (yeah, literally) the bane of my existence lol I hope you guys keep Taen alive and well ❤️ Gonna miss you guys 😭

      Yes! I am so happy to have it. Sandra Winther is the name of the artist. She did a headshot of Rae before so I opted to have her do a half body this time. She designed Rae's crown in both pieces so I'm even more thrilled to have that ongoing sun motif. She does stunning work! Here's her deviantart.

    My brother is at prom tonight. I'm at home reviewing works from the Scientific American and summarizing them while drafting a 20+ page constitutional law paper. Among other final papers. I'm like a hermit. My beard is almost as long as my hair. 3 more weeks... Then a worse kind of hell. Salud.

    I tried to add sweetheart to my vocabulary for a while, but it didn't roll of the tongue of my Pacific northwest speak anywhere near that of a southern drawl. :(

    General Chatter [18+] Violence always permitted!

    I don't think it's just you! From what I've seen, people are so scared about having what they're saying being taken or seen as an insult that they refrain from complimenting altogether. Of course idk if this specifically applies to you, but in general there's generally a link between complimenting and society's increasing oversensitivity. When I was in Montreal, there was this girl who went crazy because she was called cute. Said it was sexual harassment and objectifying her. Therefore whoever said things like that was a sexist with a deep rooted issue against women. And she was supported by others. Hard to compliment or praise people when you've got that kinda shit hanging over you, ready to come down and squash you lol

    Chasing Zengi's Gauntlet [S Class Artifact]

    "I am ready," the woman responded, her life filled eyes betraying the monotone way she spoke. Lilith had that affect on some people, her enormous power putting the other into a sort of submissive trance. Swift as a flowing river Lilith lifted a hand and touched the woman's forehead, granting her the power to sense magical prowess. "Starting now, you will forever toss your previous name. Your new name will be..." Lilith paused for a second mulling over what to name the woman brought back to life. Couldn't be to dark but still had to relay a sort of authority... the unsung horror finally grinned. "You shall be called Venus." Venus stood and bowed before her mistress. A true name was a powerful thing. When Lilith gave Venus her name, it was the same as tying an unbreakable bond between the two. Stronger still than the power she granted to her followers, thus was the power of natural law. "Look around and see if you can find any other warriors that had an ability close to when you were alive." The reformed Garantah snorted from being her, apparently a little jealous. Lilith rolled her eyes. "You have three souls in you. Don't whine to me." Though her tone was neutral, it would be a mistake to doubt Lilith would dispatch the beast as easily as she had created it. "One artifact down, one to go," Lilith said, a bubbly laugh springing from her lips. "But first, I still need to absorb more life energy." She glanced at Ankou. "You wouldn't happen to know of a nearby village ready for the picking, would you?" Picking meaning killing. Obviously. @danzilla3 (can you send me the thread for your artifact quest again. I don't remember where it is lol 😕 )
