  3. Leandra Laraethryn stared at the pile of books and ledger in front of her as the missive was delivered, taking a small break to celebrate that the city they had worked so hard to make had finally been constructed.The elfess set the missive in a desk drawer and went back to sorting through what seemed to be an endless amount of tomes.
  4. Leandra Laraethryn meandered throughout the Laraethryn Estate before coming across an old tome laid across the desk. She flipped through the pages with great care upon noticing it’s old age. She let out a small gasp at its contents. “So that is what Lathadlen has been looking for! I wonder what tomes shall be revealed next....” She carefully shut the book and continued on her way towards the temple.

  7. The Mali’ker received the letter from him- she knew damn well he was going to be walking into his demise. She tried to reach out but there was no respond to her unrelenting birds. Marzoss went to the one place she knew that could help; despite their mutual hatred towards each other the trio that came along with her searched from the wildlands to Korovassa for any sign of the red-headed elf. Though there was no sign of him until they checked the Uialben manor one last time for the woman’s husband. A bloodcurdling scream would erupt from the woman’s form as the Lord of Chains himself stood in the background, watching, waiting even. The grief struck elfess would cradle the body as her form shook and stygian wisps filled the air around her with dread. Two gauntletted hands reached out, dragging her off the body until she fell silent. A deep breath inhaled as the body was picked up and brought to the infamous estate. Once arrived at the estate- a pyre was erupted in front of the manor. The grief then took over the woman once more as she struggled to regain her composure. Her husband’s corpse tossed into the fire as she reached her hand into a leather bag at her hip. She tossed the blue lapis lazuli powder into the pyre as tears fell beneath her mask. The powder settled as she began mumbling incomprehensibly- only a single sentence being able to be made out. “There is another star amongst the sky tonight.” Marzoss then threw her mask and hood into the pyre and turned to those witnessing the ordeal. She finally spoke as clear as day. “There will be retribution for this. He will not get away- I will break tenets if I must, but I will slowly rip the skin from his body and have his family watch as his throat is carved out just as he did to Mystery.” She then wordlessly went back into the home, going down a path to ensure others atone for their sins.

  9. The End of the Grand Deceiver “She died--this was the way she died; And when her breath was done, Took up her simple wardrobe And started for the sun. Her little figure at the gate The angels must have spied, Since I could never find her Upon the mortal side.” Caestella Aureon seemed to disappear from the Empire of Man without a trace, like a whisper in the wind the elven day before her trial in Irrinor regarding the Voidal Taint that plagued her. The duo of Friedrich Carrington and Ryan Swint set out to find the elfess in her abode in Talons Grotto. Though, the human pair seemed to have arrived too late however. They stumbled into the hallway of the building, smoke could be seen lingering from under the door. The smell of burnt birch and spruce flooded their senses. “Oh no….” Friedrich, side by side with his fellow, would approach the door. They took caution, noticing the door’s state of the lock being broken. The one-eyed man whispered out, attempting to be hopeful. “The lock is broken, maybe it’s not too late.” The duo cautiously opened the door, their swords drawn, instantly being hit with the smell of a charred corpse. They walked into the home which once smelled of warm chocolate cookies and incense and had an atmosphere of comfort, to the home reduced to char and rubble. As the room was cleared by them, searching for a body, they made their way to the bedroom in which a body was finally found. A once beautiful ‘aheral woman, turned to nothing more than a crispy corpse. Her staff which she would take to the grave was sprawled on the bed. Upon further inspection it was found that there were multiple stab wounds in the body, most likely from a sword. It turned out the fire was a foul attempt at a cover up, the woman had many enemies after all. The magi finally took up the philosophy of having to risk it all before being birthed anew. The poor ‘aheral murdered and so it seemed that this was the end to the reign of Caestella Aureon. The woman had outrun death for too long, all the lies, all the deception, all the conflict, it ended for her that night. She seemed to finally be at peace with her life, from beginning to everything in between, she was at peace.
