  2. ( Kharajyr revelers walk through the streets of Elysium, making declaration of a festival to come. Naturally, word spreads, and the following information is made known throughout the local rumor mill ) The Festival of Thankful Givings "Come! Come to our grand Pyramid of Eittitica!" "Thankful are we, for our bond with Elysium, and our partnership lasting in the days to come!" "We hold this festival for you! We welcome our friends into our homes to share our culture." "We begin on the ninth day of the calendar's First Seed. The gate opens then." "Our Aelkos shall welcome you all inside himself!" -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- -=+=- This event will be held over the course of 3 ooc days with each day's main activity beginning at 4pm, eastern standard time. The schedule is as follows : - Friday, July 1st When the gate is opened at 4pm est, there will be a grand tour of Eittitica led by Aelkos Ri'Keidha. Festival goers will be led around the many locations of the Pyramid and learn about each one. Once the tour has ended, some of these locations will be hosting local Kharajyr inhabitants, running smaller activity relevant to that location. ( This also marks the beginning of the festival in total, meaning that visitors may now come to interact at the pyramid even if there is no activity currently running ) - Saturday, July 2nd There will be a hunting activity, very important in Kharajyr culture. This will begin with a religious service. A priest of Metztli will lead the Kha and festival goers in a prayer to bless the hunt that is to come. Afterwords, the Kharajyr will lead one or two groups out into the wilderness to track down their prey. ( Be prepared for crp! ) - Sunday, July 3rd There will be a game of Tlachtli, the sacred cultural ball game of the Kharajyr. Ri'Keidha will explain the rules of the game and act as the match's referee. A team of three to six players will step forward from both the Elysian and the Eittitican side. These two teams will play against each other, with the winners receiving a special prize! After feasting in the Pyramid's Tavern to celebrate, the festivities will officially come to an end. Although activities will only be happening at certain times, it is encouraged that members of both cultures come to interact whenever they are able. Furthermore, although the invitation is specifically meant for Elysium, members of other nations are welcome to attend!
  3. The History of the Pyramid Eittitica ( A painting depicting Kharajyr refugees discovering the pyramid ) As it is told, a small band of Kharajyr fled from the east of Almaris during the 6th decade of the Second Age. The incessant warring between Men and Dwarves had rendered these lands chaotic and treacherous. In response, these Kharajyr chose to abandon their homes within Urguani territory and venture out into the heart of Almaris. Their last remaining elder was charged to guide his kin during their journey. This was the Leparda known then as Xote'Keidha. He and the rest of the self-made refugees spent the following months following the moon's path across the sky. They hoped its spirit would lead them in their search of a more peaceful existence. In the land of Elysium, sheltered beneath the dense forest canopy, sat an ancient ruin. It was a pyramid of unknown origin, choked by foliage and crumbling with indeterminate age. It had laid dormant and hidden before its discovery by the Kharajyr band. The refugees noted the inherent defensibility of the great structure and admired its isolated location. Thus, it was decided that this place would serve them as their new home. Years were spent building upon the platforms and repairing the stonework as they saw fit. By the time that any other had learned of their existence there, the ancient pyramid had been transformed into a small, functional settlement. The settlers had also renamed this place Eittitica after the old Kharahatla word for “trio”. Keidha, who still led these Kharajyr, would also take this word as his surname. He had become Ri'Keidha Eittitica, First Aelkos of the Pyramid. However, it seemed peace was not to last in the west either. The bloodthirsty horde of Krugmar could no longer stand to be idle and broke their treaty of peace by launching a surprise incursion into Elysium. Keidha, who had always preferred neutrality in any conflict, was spotted traveling close to the Elysian capital by these invaders. Believing him to be an Elysian citizen, the Orcs captured him as a prisoner of war. His incarceration proved to be short-lived, however, as the few Kharajyr living under Orcish rule allowed his escape after being endeared to him. Witnessing the cruelty of Krugmar firsthand was enough to reinforce what harsh opinion was already held by the Aelkos of Eittitica. So, in the 74th year of the Second Age, when an Elysian delegation approached to make first contact with the Pyramid and petition for their cooperation, Ri'Keidha Eittitica did not hesitate to pledge support for the cause. He believed aiding any resistance against Orcish aggression would be necessary to ensure future prosperity for his people. The two cultures fought side by side throughout the next four years of warfare. Despite the small settlement's support making little difference in the conflict, a solid bond was formed between Elysian and Eittitican. The Pyramid even stood as a fortified refuge to shelter the unfortunate souls fleeing the pillaging of the Elysian capital. Each of these events culminated finally in the meeting taking place on the 4th of Malin's Welcome, during the 78th year of the Second Age. An oath was spoken on this day atop the apex of the Pyramid of Eittitica. With this, the Kharajyr had joined with Elysium, becoming their vassal officially.
  4. On the fourth day of Malin's Welcome, in the seventy-eighth year of the Second Age, it was agreed that the Kharajyr living on the Pyramid Eittitica would join with Elysium as their newest vassal. It was on this day that Queen Leika de Astrea and Lady Evelyn Silver were led to the apex of the ancient pyramid. They met with Ri'Keidha and Rei'Ahzahna, the Eittitican tribe's two current leaders. Both were guarded by their most trusted head of the military, Tul'Noss Khurhukar. The talks were amicable. The two cultures had supported each other during the rise of Orcish aggression. They had become unofficial allies already, but these talks would legitimize the union for good. These were the terms of the agreement : 1) The Pyramid Eittitica will be allowed their faith in Metztli, and freedom to follow hers or any other religion, so long as the settlement does not welcome Azdrazi or Dark Spawn. Furthermore, any information on any evil followings will be reported directly to Elysian officials. 2) In the event that Elysium is engaged in armed conflict with any power hosting a settlement of Kharajyr, warriors of Eittitica cannot be ordered to attack that settlement. Elysium has also agreed to notify Eittitican leadership on any Kharajyr settlement among their opposition, so that negotiations between Kha can take place. 3) Citizens of Eittitica would never be held in a lower regard than that of Elysian citizens and enjoy the same rights. Ri'Keidha was given a seat on the Patrician Council to represent Eittitica. 4) Eittitican citizens suspected of committing crimes elsewhere in Elysium will be held and tried within the limits of the Pyramid Eittitica. However, an Elysian magistrate must be summoned to any such trial, and will hold the same authority in that trial as their Eittitican counterpart.
  5. The language of the kha, Kharahatla, is a dying language. But the people who speak it are not dead, and thus the language should not die either. Til the last breath of Kharajyr, it shall live on. Kharahatla, the Basics The Class will be held at 6PM EST on May 9th The lecture will be held in Lecture Hall 1-A This class will teach you to speak and understand the dying language of Kharahatla, taught by Tul'Kabuki Khurhukar ( @Periphonics ). Keep the languages flame alive and allow yourself to better connect with the history rich Kharajyr race. Stay vigilant in these trying times, Chancellor of Education, Solaine Wranralei de Astrea
  6. Hyphae You find a journal locked by a green ribbon. It's edges are worn, yet it is still firmly kept together. A crow and a rose are engraved onto its dark leathery face. Entry I My dear mother. Once a respected druid, now a sickly woman on her death bed. All because I ignored the underlying stress she bared. It had all started when I ventured off into the woods again like any normal day. I had failed once again to heed the worry of my mother, who had now fallen ill to an incurable disease. Not even all the doctors of our Seed - nor herself - could cure the wretched fevers, coughs, ill pale skin, or freckling chills that felt like needles to the back that she felt every time she woke up. How could I, her only son, be so ignorant. Now she lies there every day, as if waiting for her last breath. Now my graceful father works harder until he could work no longer. Now I sit here writing, as if writing my woes could ever cure my mother. That is until I prayed to the gods. Cerridwen and Cennunos, Mother and Father of the nature that is gifted to us. Even after every moon and sun did I wait and prayed for an answer. Patience grows thin, and and so did my inpatient mind thinned until it could no more. I have packed my bags up for a journey far away, into the deeper areas of Almaris. There, I can find some sort of cure, or at least hope to help my family. Entry II In my extensive knowledge I have gain from travelling around Almaris, I would have not known I would gain a sister, or well adopt one. As I was looking for some sort of person with a medical background, I had met the young prodigy Delilah coincidentally along the way to Vortice. She had kindly greeted me and swooned me over with her childish nature. How dearly I love her. As we grew closer the following month together, she was immediately under my wing. Through her, I had learned more about the people in the East, and even settled down at Elysium to understand the herbs around there. From Bat's bulb to Jailer's Moss, I studied hard to get to her level. I wished for my parents to meet her. They always ways wanted a daughter. Entry III The peaceful life of Elysium had taken a turn for the worse. Krugmar, the warring nation up the road from Elysium. War has stepped into our lives as they threaten us with raids and kidnapping our people. Delilah resides in Fenn for her studies; where it is safer. On the other hand, I have decided to stand my ground and stay at Elysium, in hopes that our kingdom is strong enough to keep the Orcs at bay. I watch over the walls, always anticipating death at our gates. Entry IV Uruks. Crude in nature and powerful in battle. They had somehow gotten into Elysium while I was away gathering more herbs. They side with Krugmar. What crazy racists they show to be. I used the citizen tunnels to quietly get in, spying on them as they lurk the streets of our home. Seven in total I have seen. How could a handful of them get in when we had guards on every post? I have heard their prideful yells of how we are cowards, how the guards ran away, and how they would not let anyone in; mostly because they did not have the key. They vilely spill alcohol down their throats, celebrating their success. I hope this ungodly hour ends before Delilah returns home. (Entries will be added continuously in the later future)
  7. The death of Nossir Khurhukar left his per, Kabuki, alone in this world. Orphaned at 12 years of age, the young Kha'Tigrasi was forced into adulthood sooner than wished for himself. As son of the Patta of Clan Khurhukar, it was his duty to uptake the mantle of Patta. However, his young age would leave the clan stagnant for some time. 8 years passed, with near silence from the Kha clan, no new blood, new rules, new anything popping up. Seldom was Kabuki even seen, in a state of mourning for his fallen father. However, at age 20, he finally decided enough was enough. Taking on the new title officially, Tul'Kabuki Khurhukar emerged from silence, new blood flowing through the veins of his clan. Officially dubbed his new title, he begins his task of revitalizing what his father envisioned to be a strong clan of Kha, comprised of warriors and merchants. And thus, missives scatter the lands, a call to those who wish to join such a people. "Sa'vi, reader. I am Tul'Kabuki Khurhukar, Patta of the Khurhukar Clan. Kharajyr are a scattered people, roaming Almaris with little community and little family. This is why I extend this invite to all Kharajyr in Almaris. Warriors, tradesmen, merchants. You are all wanted, you are all to be embraced with open arms into my clan. I wish to help unite our people, to rebuild what once was. I live in many and no places. My patta placed us in Elysium, but I travel all around. A bird will suffice to get my attention, to all those who wish to join us. We are small now, but Kharajyr are bound by origin and we can become something strong. Family, friends. Adventures and stories. Challenges and triumphs. I can offer you all of these things and more. So please, send me a bird with your interest. Amehuan huel ma nohuon acicamatl cemanhuatl!" The bottom of the missive is signed with a rough signature.
  8. Dear Elysium, there is no simple tangibility that I can provide you with about war. There are many things that can be said about this war, there are many stratagems that have been thrown around, I am here to put them to rest. For this is a defensive war. We didn't attack Krugmar we never even raised a weapon before this war started. They decided that if we were to simply walk away from their demands that we were the enemy! Demands that would put Orcs and elves alike, that have oppressed our people, in places of power. Stripping the good people who try to keep you safe, to the people who would let Orcs and dwarves storm in during a wedding so they can talk about war! There is a time and a place for war, and there is a time and a place for discussion. I wish to speak to you about the very things that seem to be at the core of this war. I shall mention only what I know; then you, our people, can make your own decisions on whether to believe me or not. But nothing I say will be a lie within the confines of these words. The question remains, at the end of this should you fight? If not, fight for me, fight for your nation, fight for your independence, fight for the freedom to be you. Fight for the right to question the people who tell you lies. What do you think will happen, Elysium? That if they win the war, their promises of democracy will happen? The very democracies that they demonstrate in their own nation? Talks and peace we tried during our own treaty? Look where that got us. Even when we had a treaty, they still acted like we were the dirt under their toes, that they could call us around like dogs to go into our own cities. We offered peace, we offered friendship, and I even invited all the orcs to my official wedding. But what was given back? Truly, what was given back other than lessons and betrayal? How long will it take for us to realize they gave us false hopes and promises? The orcs lie. Don't let them delude you. Do not let the orcs fool you, for they talk of peace, but what peace do they bring when we send diplomats, and they lose arms, eyes, hands, or even their lives? They talk of honor, yet what honor do they bring? The honor of not killing and kidnapping children? On that day, at the beginning of the war, they stormed our roads and slaughtered everyone, even a child caught in the midst. Not even just a month ago, they kidnapped another from our roads. They say they will not hurt our children but will capture them and bring them back traumatized with injuries and broken bones. They speak of racism, but what racism is there in the free city? Freedom from so many entities; freedom from religion, freedom of speech, and freedom to be who you want to be. The only freedom we will not give you is the freedom to kill, and that is precisely what they were doing. That is what they have done. We denied them the chance to hurt, to slaughter, our people. So, what was their response? To label us racists. They want the freedom to kill and slaughter us in our own homes, to allow us just to watch and not do a single thing. So how is that right? How is that even equal to the people around us, that we just watch as the people -Ologs, akin to kids, as the orcs named them- beat and steal from women and children? Is it not the parents' fault that their children do not behave? It's not right, and it's not racism if we call them out for the misdeeds they bring upon our citizens. It seems the orcs have misused the term "racism" for the word "justice." When did we become racists? They go out and purposely kill our mages just because they are voidal? To take their eyes and hands because they are not what the orcs want. I reckon they are the boys crying wolf. Big bad wolf. And if you know the tale, you know that their word only means so much the first few times. So how long will we let them label us? Elysium, The Crown and our governance have worked tireless hours to make sure you are happy. And if you are not happy? There’s always a seat open in the government. You are always allowed to ask and look for employment there. We have always listened to the people and their votes where we could. No word that I have said has been a lie, not as blatant as what our opponent has done. I will not sugar coat my words; it will not be easy. No war is. I will not give you false promises and hopes, I will make those amends. You will always have a voice as long as you are in Elysium. As long as we are the Kingdom of Elysium. If we stand together and fight, we can push back our enemies. "Honour with strength bound, Grounded by Humility." Yours truly, Elysium's companion first, the Heir apparent second.
  9. With danger always being around the corner all over Almaris, it is almost needed to have a medic around at all times. This isn't plausable sadly, but instead we can learn the basics of medicine and how to swiftly treat those who need it. Intro to Medicine This Class will be held on April 20th at 7pm EST in Lecture Hall 2-A In this class you will go over First Aid with Aech Anarore ( @Aech) and other topics related to beginners knowledge in the field. It's a benefit for anyone to know these basics, especially in these trying times. Stay safe, Chancellor of Education, Master Librarian, Elysium's Education Lady, Solaine Wranralei de Astrea
  10. [!] A black raven flies over trees and nations to bring a letter that may never be read. 20th of Malin's Welcome, SA 72 Dear Fitz, I do not know where you have gone, but I hope you are safe. The Guenevere's have been removed from Elysium; I forget for what, but I know that they are gone from there now. The manor feels empty, more than it already did. My Pa isn't around much, and Mica left to explore the world to her heart's content, I wonder if you are doing the same. I've slowly lost motivation in my craft over the years, but I picked up needle and thread and created a new dress. Maybe I can find a girl in Haense that will like it. It is made of a soft cream top with a dotted blue skirt lined with red at its borders, truly a nice match don't you think? Maybe I can make another version of it too, one in green and yellow. I miss you, I truly do, not a day goes by where I don't think of what you are doing and working on. Every part of me wants to help you, to be near you but I know you always did keep me away from the work you did. I remember years of our lives together, but now it only feels like we just met all over again. And in some truth, we did, you met me again for a second time. As heartbreaking that interaction was, it only fueled me to stay by your side and help you back to your place of standing, even if I failed ultimately. If you ever call to find me, I will be moving back to Haense. As much as I love Elysium for raising me and sheltering me for most of my life, none of my family resides there anymore. My aunt that raised me when my Pa couldn't is elsewhere, my Pa himself is never home it seems, and the child I helped raise is traveling the world. I have more resting in Haense than I do Elysium, but I will always visit when I can. When you do come back, I will wait for you with open arms and hopefully you the same for me. The love of my life, may you come back in peace. With Love, Amelia Guenevere Mondblume
  11. This letter is penned by scribe, under direction of Nisreen Odinson de Astrea, this 9th of Malin’s Welcome, Year SA 72, and addressed to Duke Eugeo de Astrea, Lady Leika de Astrea, Heir Regent, and the members of the Government of Elysium. I am writing to inform you of my decision to leave office and my position as the Minister of Knowledge of Elysium, as well as relinquishing any governmental power I may have held as Minister. This decision does not come easy, although I have concluded I cannot uphold my position and serve the community of Elysium as it is fit to be served, whilst I am pursuing personal investigations and fulfilling duties elsewhere. My final day in office will be the Day of The First Seed of SA 72, after which I fully relinquish the title of office. I thank you for the opportunity you have provided me in serving this position, and I am grateful for the eighteen years I have been able to serve you and Elysium as such. I am willing to aid in a search and interview process for a new Minister of Knowledge as needed, as well as any duties to be completed before I leave office in order to ensure a smooth transition for Governance after my departure. Sincerely, Nisreen Odinson de Astrea

  17. Born again the heart of the fighter - The Elysian Guard With the disbanding of the Lunaran Guard and its members merging with the Elysium Army, a new military is born, the Elysian Guard. The Elysian Guard brings a return of the Elysian Rangers, now fully implemented in the Military, while from the Elysian Army, the wardens rise in the new Military Hierarchy, side by side with the Rangers. Military Hierarchy: Initiate Ranger/Warden Veteran Commander Lord Commander Initiate: The Initiate remains the recruit of the Elysian Guard, meaning that it is a trial period for the one who wants to join the Guard. The Rangers & Wardens: They stand equal in terms of authority, but they have their different duties and priorities. While the Warden patrols the city and roads of the Kingdom, the Rangers scatter and scout the lands, either Elysium’s lands or its enemies, while also taking notice of the monsters and animals that can be found in those lands. Commanders: They are the ones chosen by the Lord Commander and Monarch of Elysium to help lead the Elysian Guard, having the second-highest rank. Lord Commander: The one who leads the Elysian Guard and all of Elysium’s Military, holding the most authority besides the Monarch. Auxiliary roles: These are roles that one can assume if they want to help the guard but do not want or can’t use a weapon: Medic, Mage, Alchemist, Blacksmith, Quartermaster. The Ranger Code Made decades ago and still holds in the sense of honor of Elysium's sons and daughters that serve in its Military. I. If your actions aren’t justified, stop pursuing them. II. Always take the side of morals over the side that’s winning. III. When you feel fear, embrace it. IV. Fight for what you care for, but in a way that others will join you. V. Be free from the past, live in the present, Cultivate the future. VI. Treat others how oneself would like to be treated. VII. A decision made with a calm mind is often the best. VIII. Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle. IX. Only fight when it's for a purpose, defending or being provoked. X. Have good character, character is how you act when no one is watching. "Changing times call for adaptive action. Only with emboldened bond can we ensure our survival, as not mere descendants, but as brothers and sisters in arms. And for the cold, a bottle of whiskey never hurt, either." -Avalor Astasel "To restrict oneself to single-tasked dogmatism is a fool's plight. Only through knowledge of the vastly unperceived and wisdom toward that which is unknown may we truly be prepared for all." -Silas Astasel "So yeh want teh be ah man of worthiness eh? I only have two words yeh should live by.. Pursue greatness, at all costs, better yerself day by day, eventualleh yeh won't even know yer great, but theh songs an' stories told about yeh in the tavern'll speak for yeh." -Absolon "One-Eyed Raven" de Astrea How you can join?

  21. The Lunaran Guard, The Royal Guard of Elysium, The Protectors of The de Astreas An official writ and commandment, given fourth from the power granted to us by our Lord, Duke Eugeo de Astrea and his bloodline. 12th of the Amber Cold, 68 of the second age. “The Lunaran Guard with the power given to us by our Lord Eugeo and his bloodline. Hereby give the following commands to the following people. Effective immediately” Esmeralda Guenevere de La Luz is officially, but temporarily, stood down and removed from her position and powers within the government of our beloved city of Elysium until the Guenevere Household Incident of Year 66 has been resolved or until further notice. In addition, if they wish to enter the city they must be accompanied by a Lunaran Guard or an approved escort, in order to prevent any further incident or harm to either her or another citizen. Should no guard be free, they shall not enter due to their actions upon the evening of the writing of this writ. Should another Guenevere wish to take up the representative position on the Patrician’s council, they are welcome to contact the Duke or his heir. Liluth Solros, has obstructed the Justice of our city, and in response to her attempt to stop and mislead Lunaran Guards in their duties during their investigation, there was an unsuccessful attempt to arrest, resulting in a Class X punishment. Further investigation regarding the Bokolo Tavern incident will be done, as well as the after effects. With this unfortunate development, her titles and government granted powers have returned to the state for the Royal family to impart to a worthy successor. Should another Solros wish to take up the representative position on the Patrician’s council, they are welcome to contact the Duke or his heir. It is with a saddened heart that we make such a command, yet it is a measure that must be done for not only the protection of the Royal family, but our beloved nation in its whole. We wish to make it clear that there is hope for a quick, and fair resolution, and that those not involved with the situation are not to take blame for the actions of their Clansmen. The Solros and Guenevere are core founding families, and it is not our desire for them to feel alienated due to this incident. The investigation report and finalized papers will be out soon. Any information that anyone would like to come forward with is free to do so, simply contact a Lunaran Guard. Should interviews be denied, and further reports not be submitted in a timely manner, the conclusive report shall be compiled and publicized with what we have at our disposal. The Lunaran Guard, acting within the power gifted to them by Duke Eugeo de Astrea, standing Reagent of Elysium. May Our Duke Eugeo De Astrea and those of their name forever stay within the light and care of our lands. Eugeo de Astrea, Duke of Elysium Amethyst Vanari, Legatus of the Lunaran Guard, Member of the Elysium High Council, and Acting Chancellor of Citizen Affairs Ellathor Vanari, The Lord Commander of Elysium, Minister of Defense in the High Council Lunah Vanari, Praefect of the Lunaran Guard, Member of the Elysium High Council, and Acting Minister of Finance Aylin Vanari, Praefect of the Lunaran Guard

These are a signal of a change of an era, a new chapter to its storied legacy stretching numerous centuries. Aid we must. With hospitable hearts and kindred minds, to aid them with necessary means to stand tall and proud as the men and women of grit and the eternal savoyard banner fluttering against perilous thanhium winds. We choose to give to our very own sister nation. To give the aid, they need in their battle with the elements. With donations and the raised funds of a collective, determined community, we are prepared to donate to the leaders of Savoy, carts of hay, medical supplies and prime cuts of our cattle are ready to be transported. In addition, Savoyards will only be treated as allies and honored guests and offered free homes in our lands as well. The resolve of succor only strengthens as word of the plight grows, and the sunlit heart of Elysium stands ready to assist. May Savoy and her people rebuild and forge ahead.
