Sitting in the middle of the Town Square is an
oversized statue of Soros the Conqueror, and he is holding a grey pearl broadsword.
Whereas people were nervous about the loss of the gold statue, most townsfolk won't even
come close now. A damaged small blue leaves is here.

** Garlidan Mellor just logged in.
Garlidan just entered from the south.
Garlidan looks like a 6'7 standard young massive
boned, average bodied Human.
He has casual black hair, grey eyes, and looks disheveled.
He appears to be in a distant mood right now.
He can be attacked by other players.
He appears to be in perfect health.
He wears a pouch which could contain almost
anything...and probably does.
He has readied nothing.
A small red robin flies into the area, turns
into a red marble, and drops into Garlidan's hand. He quickly places the marble into his
Garlidan says, "Greetings"
Garlidan says, "It has been a while."
Garlidan sits down.
Garlidan says, "Sit, my friends"
Garlidan says, "I'm afraid I have not
called a meeting under the best of circumstances."
Selder says, "I doubt there will ever be a
good time to call a meeting."
Garlidan says, "So I've heard, Selder."
Garlidan says, "As you know, there is a
great power in the south, and that power is chaotic. There have been some very
strange things happening lately, and no explanation for them. My long absence can be
attributed to my work with the council. We have labored long and hard to sort
through the mysteries that have confronted us over the last year and we have tried our
best to keep the most ghastly discoveries to ourselves until we could decide what to do
Garlidan says, "Two weeks ago, a young
woman came to us in the council. Considering that the location of the council is one
of the land's best-kept secrets, that surprised us already, and yet, somehow, we weren't
surprised. We looked in her eyes, and saw something terrible, and we let her into
Laurana says, "Madness?"
Garlidan says, "that would be preferable, Lady Laurana"
Garlidan says, "but I digress"
Garlidan says, "The young woman began to
tell us a story. She told it in a steady tone, with no emotion, and she told it to
us in such a way that we did not move, even breathe during the telling."
Selder says, "Garlidan, what was the
Garlidan says, "We don't know. Selder. Maybe we never will."
Garlidan says, "I cannot repeat the story
verbatim, but it solidified some of our suspicions of recent events."
Garlidan says, "There has been a terrible
balance in the land, but it is not what you think, or what we expected. Over the
last 100 years, we in the council have labored for order because that is what we thought
Garlidan says, "I'm afraid..."
Garlidan says, "we have erred."
(Laurana pats Garlidan on the back.)
Garlidan says, "The Gods have begun to pull
out of the affairs of the land, sensing what is to come.
(Ket signs "Gods shmods...)
Garlidan says, "The young woman rightly
foretold the wave of chaos which is beginning to spread. This wave transcends the
underworld - transcends mortal affairs - even transcends the dragons of the land.
The wave will take many forms, it is a universal constant."
(Claudius hands Garlidan a yelican flavored
Garlidan says, "As the woman foretold...
the Spur will be destroyed, utterly and totally, in but a few short months."
Garlidan says, "The woman left us at that
point. We don't know where she came from, or where she went to. We are trying
frantically to come up with answers, for if the Spur falls, the land itself will fall to
the power in the South. Our main goal right now is to figure out how to reroute the
wave of chaos."
Garlidan says, "We have very few keys, and
fewer ideas, but the power which is building through the land is immense and many of the
threats you perceive now are but pawns."
Selder says, "One must know his enemy
before he can defeat him."
Garlidan says, "Selder, in this respect,
the enemy is the universe itself."
Laurana says, "Garlidan, is this wave
connected with Soros? Did she say?"
Garlidan says, "Soros, whatever he was or
might be now, is but a pawn as
Garlidan says, "But there is one small hope
that we cling to. The Spur has survived wave after wave of chaos, due to the power
of its heroes. The Spur was the last to stand up to Soros at his height, and the
Spur was the place that sent Loa'Kass to his exile."
Laurana says, "Must you speak of him?"
Garlidan says, "What we need to do is to
find a way to stand up to chaos without invoking order. After much deliberation, we
have come up with the following
hypothesis:"The Spur will receive several waves of chaotic shock, each worse than the
last. We have no idea what form they will take. If you can survive each shock in
turn... We can only wonder what the last will be, and what can be done to stand
against it, but entropy seems the only balancing factor. and care must be taken to follow
the entropic leaders of your realm."
Karak says, "Any idea when this will
Garlidan says, "It has already started, Karak"
Kopur mumbles something beneath his breath.
Garlidan says, "Ah, the twins."
Garlidan says, "Why did they elude our
Garlidan says, "Hmmm. Where ARE the twins?"
Selder says, "In Kralen's hands."
Laurana says, "In the stronghold, Garlidan."
Garlidan says, "I must bring this bit of
information back to the council. The twins might be just what we need to balance the
land once again. They have been gone for... 103 years..."
Garlidan taps his foot.
Garlidan says, "My friends, be strong and be brave. Your lives might not be the same
Garlidan stands up.
Garlidan just went south.
