    A Double Edged Sword

    Carina fought back a sigh when neither of the two men acknowledged her earlier statements. Still, her worry for Sebastian overshadowed the urge to throw a snarky comment at Marik Cayne. Sebastian walked towards the Hydra pit. "... I would appreciate it if you both would come with me." Carina eyed the hydra hatchling. The creature had settled back into a nap, despite the odd behavior Sebastian had reported earlier. Running a hand through her hair - succeeding into making it more unruly - Carina sighed. "Alright. Just... be careful." She would follow him down the ladder, the faint shimmer of wings behind her back slowing her fall.

    Summary: Empress Rozharon visits Abigail Karradeen to discuss her signing of House Uldwar's proposed constitution. Abigail raises her concerns about Taen's rule. An anti-pirate campaign with Karradeen and Singlance is discussed and planned, and Rozharon opens the possibility of Karradeen being returned to its former status as a major noble house. @Alexithymia

    Terrenus AMA 2.0

    I tried copy-pasting it but it just came out as a regular center-aligned list 😕 Terrenus' location link list (that alliteration lol) appears to be five columns on my laptop and one column when viewed on mobile. Genesaris' location link list uses an RTF tables, similar to the what I use for the Veluriyam Empire article, but on mobile the tables keep their column number and squish the text into very hard to read lines. I'll wait for desolate's explanation though, thanks for the tag!

    The Brittle King's Tragedy OOC

    Just wanted to point out that Celestine is the one shooting with the exalta gauntlets. I'll probably post here Anatase's reaction after @vielle acts with Celestine, hopefully in the same "space" as Ilyana's stab?

    Well. This had been a very productive meeting. In the span of a single rant, Abigail Karradeen had given Rozharon a clear picture of her character, her views on Damien Gillick in comparison to her father, a personal account of Karradeen’s experience under the Tyrant King, and oh, something truly interesting - the old house head was apparently planning a revolution. It was a pity Taen had come when it had for Karradeen, at least. Though the revolution, as Rozharon well knew revolutions went, would have been either long, drawn-out, and successful, or short and quickly extinguished. It would have been bloody either way. It was doubtful any stockpile of weapons could have stood up against the Black Knights, but regardless, it was good to note Karradeen was in possession of those. Rozharon, perhaps unnervingly so, did not so much as bat an eyelid during Abigail’s outburst. The seraph waited patiently, expression blank, with the air of a parent waiting for a child to tire itself out from throwing a fit. “Iᴛ’s ꜰɪɴᴇ,” Rozharon said, her tone perfectly neutral once more. “I ᴜɴᴅᴇʀsᴛᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜᴇ ᴘᴀsᴛ ꜰᴇᴡ ʏᴇᴀʀs ʜᴀᴠᴇ ʙᴇᴇɴ… ᴅɪꜰꜰɪᴄᴜʟᴛ. Aᴛ ᴀɴʏ ʀᴀᴛᴇ I ʜᴏᴘᴇ ᴛʜᴇ ᴘʀᴏᴊᴇᴄᴛ ᴡɪᴛʜ Sɪɴɢʟᴀɴᴄᴇ ᴡɪʟʟ ʙᴇ ʟᴇss sᴛʀᴇssꜰᴜʟ. Tʜᴀɴᴋ ʏᴏᴜ ꜰᴏʀ ʙᴇɪɴɢ ʜᴏɴᴇsᴛ, ᴀɴʏᴡᴀʏ." Karradeen's demotion wasn't necessary, as far as the information available to her told her. However, restoring their status was not an option at the moment. She would not go against Titus' word, at least not so quickly.

    Not lore-related, but I hope this is the appropriate place to ask: how'd you do the formatting of the location links on the Terrenus Landing Page? The list of location links are laid out in multiple columns but they adjust depending on the screen width, and I can't figure out how to do it so far with tables.

    The Brittle King's Tragedy

    Both treasure-hunters look unconcerned when four more figures drop out of the ceiling. “Shall we?” Anatase hums, extending a hand to Celestine in a gentlemanly manner. Celestine rolls her eyes but nods, gently bumps her gauntlet against the outstretched hand. “Yes, let’s.” Anatase and Celestine press their tiger’s-eye lenses to their faces. The crystal devices stay in place, leaving the pair’s hands free as both ready their weapons. The ends of Celestine’s gauntlets glow a dangerous white. Anatase draws a pair of lodepoints from a small pack at his waist. “There’s four now. Mummies. They all have knives,” Anatase says, loud enough for the group to hear. “One dropped off the platform. Might climb up from behind to surprise us, who knows. Keep watch.” As soon as Ilyana escapes the reaver’s grasp, Anatase throws the lodepoints with deadly accuracy. There’s a soft clang on metal on metal, the knife flies out of the Reaver’s grasp. A grin appears on his face. He gives a short bow to Celestine, speaking in a whisper only the pearls will carry, “Your turn.” Celestine, however, is already in motion. She moves a few steps and shifts her stance, aiming her gauntlets straight at the nearest Reaver, bolts of energy flaring from their crystallized cores straight into the center of its chest, sending it reeling backward with the force of the impact. Her mouth is a thin, determined line as she watches it try to amble forward on teetering legs before finally crumpling to the ground. “Uh oh, we angered them,” Celestine says in a deadpan voice as the remaining two Reavers surge forward with sudden fury, though perhaps it is only Anatase who can detect the slight tremor underlying her words. Anatase turns his attention to Ilyana for the meantime. "Found anything of note over there?" he asked, tone conversational.

  13. Fair enough. At any rate Rozharon's jist going to go "nice I broke her down and also now have a good grasp of her motivations and desires, and Karradeen's recent history. Also these guys are unlikely to revolt. Successful meeting." It's hard to work around the Karradeen history retcon without Roz explicitly going "that's not my fault, titus did that. Our bad, I'll undo it." but this seems fine. Should I end the thread with my next post with Roz leaving or would you like to continue with Abigail saying something else?
