  4. THE VALDEV DOG RACES FOR THE HEARTH OF THE HOMELAND. Issued by the LADY CHAMBERLAIN On this 8th day of Tov ag Yermey of 491 E.S. VA BIRODEO HERZENAV AG EDLERVIK, Throughout the history of Haense, dogs have played an integral role in the culture and daily life of the region. From companionship, to guarding and hunting, these loyal and skilled animals left an indelible mark on our history. House Ludovar– in particular– are well known for their connection to dogs, notably their renowned breeding of a specific dog: the Ottoshund. Such hounds were descended from herding dogs, and are now fit to fulfill many jobs due to their size and temperament. To honor this historical bond between Haense and its faithful canine companions, a grand dog race event is set to take place within the town square. As participants and spectators gather to witness the thrilling races, other festivities and stalls will be set up to be enjoyed by all. THE RACES Similar to celebrated races held in other nations, a charming track will be laid out to challenge the young, eager puppies as they showcase their agility and spirit. Alongside this endearing spectacle, spectators will line the sidelines– anticipating the triumphant arrival of their entered canines. Owners, in the spirit of friendly competition, can encourage their puppies to reach the finish line. As the dogs dash towards victory, treats and affection from their owners and other spectators will await them at the end. BETTING Amidst the joyous atmosphere of the event, an exciting opportunity awaits attendees in the form of friendly wagers. As the energetic race unfolds on the track, betting booths positioned around the course will offer a chance for attendees to showcase their instincts and predictions, further enhancing the thrill of the competition. With each bark, leap, and dash of the racing dogs, the suspense will grow, and the stakes will grow higher the more bets are placed. Should a dog win, the amount will be dispersed between all those with a ticket for the winning dog. This is all in friendly competition, so the honor system will be utilized- if you use, pay up. ADOPT YOUR OWN An important part of this event is finding young pups their forever home - whether an elderly lord wanting a companion, a farmer needing a herding dog, or a child wanting their very own new best friend. Seven puppies, ranging in different sizes, colors, and temperaments will be up for adoption - eagerly anticipating their proud paw-rents. A playpen will be included by the adoption center, so that children can play with their puppies, with toys being included in the pen. Great for bonding with your newly acquired friend! In addition, a small stand will be set up, featuring commodities such as fine-toothed combs for dog grooming, dog biscuits and treats, as well as toys for your new puppy!

  11. ⋆꒷꒦‧₊˚𓆩The Narrator's Prologue𓆪˚₊‧꒦꒷⋆ [Before you, a book written and published under the name Fal'leon Kagura Maehr'uhier] We found ourselves in a space unfamiliar, cold, and devoid of life. The silence of nature was near deafening, and I was thankful for the song my staff gave off. Myself, Nemea, Elenora, Floria, Lesley, and a ‘ker unbeknownst to myself stood on the black sand, surrounded by crimson walls and a dark ceiling. The being- a man, or something emulating a man, faceless and threatening floated above us with menace. The Narrator, it so dubbed itself, and thus I shall do the same. The Narrator spoke, “Think of this as a first draft to my story. I’ve read stories with dragons and beasts, where a group of heroes save the princess.” Questions flurried from us. Where were we? What are the rules? Can we bird a friend? They were answered, though the information was hardly noteworthy. If the Narrator bore a gaze, it landed on Nemea, who had provoked it previously. Within an instant, she was atop a black stoned structure that hovered in the air. We, the heroes, I suppose, bickered for a small bout, the fault of our situation up for debate. A discussion I will save detailing. “Do you all have your weapons ready?” We were asked. Yes’s from nearly everyone, except myself and Floria. Panic struck me at that moment, but this Narrator creature is apparently not an unjust creature. But, rather, a storyteller. A glaive, my glaive formed into my grasp, thankfully. The engravings of elven, the decor, all as created. How interesting this creature is. The Narrator vanished before I had even a moment to notice, and in its place a creature of vile appearance. Its maw was large and toothy, hung open in an unpleasant manner. Its flesh, or something like flesh, was black and inky in colour, similar to the sand below us. “Thats a face only a haelun could love” “I dont think even a haelun could love THAT.” While humorous, it wasn’t a false description. This creature wasn’t something I enjoyed viewing. I can’t imagine any of us did. Our time to simply sit and observe was not long spent, as it let out a noise I can only describe as the roared version of a stomach gurgle before beginning to approach one of my comrades. We moved in tandem to encircle this creature while Lesley began to egg it onwards, yelling and running to draw its attention away from the rest of our party. I waited, my glaive ready, my breath held. The chance of this thing being peaceful remained on the table, that is, until it struck Lesley. I took this as this story’s confirmation to be on the attack, and attack I did. Decades of combat etched into the very bones of my existence, the cobwebs promptly shaken free in the moment of my approach. Swift, fluid, and on the mark. I felt my blade bury into the back of this creature with great satisfaction, and when I returned to a defensive position, saw what must have been its version of blood-- that thick black sand all around us-- leaked out. This initiation of combat wasn’t something that would go without punishment, I learned this fact quickly. I had kept my distance from the beast, the length of my blade allowing such, however not enough it seemed. Claws raked my face and seared pain through me. The sting of combat, a masochistic joy I seldom admit to miss. I felt the blood seep down, and with two of us bearing injury, a silent acknowledgement of the severity of our situation sunk in. Even if the Narrator wouldn’t allow us to die, a prospect we had no proof of, we could leave with severe injuries. Perhaps that realization is what caused everyone to move in at once. In succession, Elenora, myself, the ‘ker and Floria all moved to strike the creature down where it stood. Axe, glaive, trident and spear, all sunk into various places. Myself, I aimed for the very arm that dared to strike me. And, as swiftly as it had formed, the creature fell to sand as its jaw unhinged. We stood together, still seeing red, our chests heaving. I was brought from my trance by Nemea falling from above and landing next to me, and realized then it had ended. “Tutorial complete.” The Narrator floated above us once more, and I craned to view it. I wonder now, in recalling this, if it had expected the majority of us to have enjoyed the experience, or perhaps it was disappointed by such. It was hard to tell what a faceless creature was feeling, given it couldn’t emote such to us, and certainly wouldn’t give word. What it did inform us of, is that this was hardly the end of our new story. This was, in all senses of the word, a test. Our toes dipped into the waters of this tale, of the format in which this writer would be crafting its next book. Concerningly, excitingly, I’m under the impression that these chapters -- as I’ve been calling it -- will increase in difficulty going forward. This prologue was easy, but if the Narrator is as much a craftsman of chronicles as it claims to be, then things will grow more interesting with time. “I will give you two years' rest.” Two years. That’s the amount of time we have to prepare ourselves for the first real chapter of this tale, and hone the skills we have. What this Narrator is, its powersource, is unbeknownst to any of us. Voidal in nature, it is not, this is something I am sure of. Thus, it remains a mystery I hope to solve. I hope these next two years treat us well enough that we may be prepared for what lies ahead.

  13. Issued the 5th of Sun’s Smile, 1930 The Kingdom of Aaun THE HAVERLOCK GRAND OPENER An Illustrious Bachelor’s Sport Penned by Leopold Alexander Haverlock & Julietta Laurelei Haverlock Published by Clementine Court Introduction & Event Itinerary A man's hobby is clearly indicative of his character, for how can one infer the condition of a man's heart other than what he takes pleasure in? That is why it is important for an upcoming bachelor, and those that have already matured, to reflect upon his moments of idle time. Upon maturation, a man's interests change from that of fruitless trivialities to those of true fulfillment. One of these interests is the essential labor of fishing. Fishing has found itself a central part of both society and its participants. That is why, for the men of great pedigree, we should find ourselves indulging in the illustrious practice of taming the creatures of the sea as we do with those who walk upon the land. Participants will compete for the greatest catch in both quality and quantity. This will be conducted during a shortly timed collection period where participants will either ride on a boat or stand upon the banks of our fair city. We will meet at the docks to provide rods and twine for each member. After points are allocated we will enjoy a feast from our bountiful harvest. To assist our righteous government we will also be selling commemorative pins. The funds collected from these sales will contribute to the Kingdom's coffers. Point System Auunic Cod | 1 Point Oceanic Salmon | 1 Point Tropical Cichlid | 2 Points Oceanic Pufferfish | 3 Points Junk Items | 1 to 2 Points, final decision made during the event ‘Treasure’ | 1 to 3 Points, final decision made during the event. Available Prizes Winners will be determined by the number of points collected by the end of the session. Those present will decide upon the method of determination in the event of a tie. 1st Place A reward of 50 Mina along with a trophy constructed from the winner’s catch. Likely a taxidermy fish. 2nd Place A potion of their choice that is provided by Julietta Haverlock. A list will be given to the 2nd place winner as to which potions are available. 3rd Place A commemorative pin, either fully custom, or one that will be sold during the duration of the event. Signed, Her Excellency, Julietta Laurelai Haverlock, Lady Chamberlain of Aaun, Founder & Head of the Order of Elixirs, Councilor of The Medical Society of St.Catherines His Lordship, Leopold Aleksander Haverlock
  14. … .. . [!] A few Saint’s Days ago, a brave group of young men and women descended into the Weaver’s Den within the Swamp. The Valiant Seekers: Wyn ‘The White Light’ Julietta ‘The Sharp Shooter’ Zelphar ‘The Erratic’ Leonardo ‘The Pack Mule & Bomber’ Raven ‘The Inflaming’ Rumil ‘The Unrelenting’ Uhier ‘The Golden Throw’ Giraudus ‘The Explorer’ Saxton ‘The Gaunt’ Handil ‘The Watcher’ A’lia ‘The Hound’ Azra ‘The Invincible’ The Weaver’s Den is a cave system shrouded in darkness consumed by Piranha Wasps. These wasps live in the upper regions of the cave hive, eating and tearing through everything that enters. The Valiant Seekers came across many dead bodies that fell victim to these wasps in their venture. Further down lay the Karkossa, acid spitting spiders the size of humans, poking out of holes in the walls. Taunting the Valiant Seekers. They appeared in numbers, usually three or more. Then, at the very center, lay the Queen. FIRST EXPEDITION Wyn, Julietta, Zelphar, Handil, Raven, and Azra enter the Weaver’s Den, the party not knowing what to expect. Lucky for them, Wyn brought torches. This kept the Piranha Wasps at bay, the only thing keeping the group alive. They transcended the tunnels, no map in sight. When approaching a dead end, the Valiant Seekers found themselves cornering the Piranha Wasps. Light keeps them at bay, but they quickly found out that if the bugs felt like they had to, they would charge. And that they did, passing through the group giving everyone scratches and nicks. The medic during the expedition, Julietta passed out a Tippens Root salve to everyone and they moved on. Down the winding tunnels, they found themselves at many fault lines. Passing over them with relative ease until Zelphar threw a rock at one. The whole fault line crumbled, the sound of shifting rock all around them. They moved on, Julietta throwing a blast potion on another one which opened up into a massive cavern. Wyn and Azra approached the hole, before it collapsed beneath them! The group rushed in aside from Handil and Julietta where they found themselves face to face with the Karkossa. Eventually, everyone makes it down there and after Wyn, the Tank, kills them all they ascend to the surface once more. They needed to prepare. SECOND AND FINAL EXPEDITION We return to the Weavers Den. Now a party of 10 and much more prepared than last time. The Valiant Seekers knew what to expect and what to bring. Weapons and potions, as many lanterns as one could possibly carry. Back inside the winding tunnels they found themselves with Piranha Wasps on both sides. They had to make a decision, into the tiny tunnel or be eaten alive. As they all rushed to the tunnel, for obvious reasons, the Piranha Wasps left them alone. Finding themselves in a new place within the hive, they continued on. This was the Spiders Territory. One Fault Line after another, eventually they ended up breaking one. In doing so, the noise alerted the Karkossa and they began to attack the rear of the group in a giant wave. Those at the front of the cave were helpless in the matter and after doing a Perception check, Leonardo heard something. A scream. He transcended down into the cavern, Julietta quickly following with a now loaded crossbow. The fighting continued up above, the duo now in a new tunnel and making their way through it. A cry for help was heard, before nothing. It was silent, too silent. Julietta advised they wait for the others and headed back to the entrance, Leonardo quickly following. The group rushed down the new tunnel, their eyes watching every crevice within the walls. A cocoon. A silk cocoon. Wyn cut it open, the dead body of a man falling out. He collected the man's belongings, hoping to give him a proper burial once they made it out. Even so, they continued on. Reaching a thick tunnel of webs, Raven lit the thing ablaze, burning their way through the pathway. THE BOSS BATTLE The tunnel opened into a massive cavern, eggs and webs covering the walls. Everything was still so quiet, the party on high alert. Those same silk cocoons hung from the ceilings, the victims' cries never having been heard. Then, she appeared. The Queen. She shot that same acid onto Raven, burning him beyond belief. Julietta immediately shot her crossbow, landing a solid hit on the thing. A blast potion was thrown and missed, scaring the Queen further into the room. Uhier threw another blast potion, hitting the Queen dead on. She fell, scurrying off to the far side of the cave room. Wyn and Rumil followed, Julietta passing Leonardo an acid neutralizer to help with Raven’s burns. Zelphar, Saxton, and Handil took care of the minions that began flooding into the space. Julietta loaded up a flaming bolt within her crossbow, waiting for the perfect shot. Wyn slid under the Queen’s underbelly, stabbing it with his greatsword. One thing led to another and his leg was punctured by the Queen’s. Rumil slashed at the legs of the Queen, cutting one off before getting thrown by another. There! The perfect shot. Julietta warned everyone before letting the bolt loose, hitting the Queen dead in the head! Her whole head lit ablaze in mere moments, Wyn using this time to slice her head clean off. He succeeded, but in doing so the Queen retaliated. She lifted a leg, going to drive it directly into the man in a killing blow. While her head was no longer, that leg still had to come crashing back down. But to Wyn’s luck, Uhier sliced it clean off, saving his life. The group cheered. Wyn and Julietta get the finishing blows with Uhier saving Wyn’s life. On the other side of the cavern were the three men, Saxton, Zelphar, and Handil taking care of the minions in perfect succession. THE AFTERMATH With the Queen dead, the Valiant Seekers cheered. A’lia and Julietta rushed to Wyn’s aid, A’lia magically healing him with her wolves following. They surveyed the area before taking whatever they could get from the Queen’s body. Then they felt it. A rumble. Something had awoken. Something much bigger. The Evils of the Swamp were not defeated yet, the party had another mission after this. This was not the last the Swamp would see of them. Until next time. THE WEAVER’S DEN WAS DEFEATED, THE VALIANT SEEKERS VICTORIOUS. FIRST ONES IN, LAST ONES OUT. To celebrate the victory, Julietta is hosting a tavern night in Whitespire, Aaun, on Wednesday, June 21st at 9pm EST. Be there to hear the terrifying tale of all they have to share. OOC

  21. THE STORY OF THE LECHIAN ARTILLERYMEN [♪] The sun has not been seen in Karosgrad for months. The dark night shrouded everything and the only sources of light were lamps and bonfires. Humanity has struggled with the bane that was the Mori for a very long time. The battles in the human kingdoms were constant. People were dying like flies trying to fend off the attacks of these spawns of Iblees. The time has come for the final battle for the fate of humanity. The last capital on the continent to hold out while the human Kingdoms of Balian and Aaun as well as the elven, dwarven and orc ones fell. Volunteers streamed into the Haenseni capital from all directions, and their flags flew in the cold nightly wind. Amidst these masses of volunteers were the flags bearing the White Eagle. The proud people of Lechia, despite coming in a group of only four, have answered the call. The flags carried by the volunteers bore a big White Eagle and the famous words "For Freedom Ours and Yours". When they arrived at the main square, they had no idea where they would be assigned, which gate or regiment. Then Lord Marshal, Wilheim Barclay, arrived and ordered the Lechians to defend the port gate. Their struggle to defend humanity began. The volunteers quickly ascended to the top of the gate where they were given two cannons and supplies of gunpowder and cannonballs at their disposal. Having split into two teams - Aleksander with Waclaw, Mikhail with Boon - the Lechians quickly began preparing the cannons. Shortly afterwards, others arrived at the gate. Many different nations fought at the same gate, but their shared goal was clear - prevent them from going through. First the locusts arrived and then hordes of slaves began to march across the dock. The first order was given by the Barclay: SHOOT AT THE HAY BALES SO THAT THEY START TO BURN Shots rang out and cannonballs hit their target. A first success for the men who will be called Artillerymen at the end of the battle. Blocking the slaves' access to the barricaded harbour gate, the cannons focused on the oncoming locusts. Children of Warsovia worked fast, almost like a mechanism - roll the cannon back, clean it, load it, push it forward, shoot, repeat. There was no time for mistakes, there was only victory in their minds. Cannonball after cannonball flew out, hitting their opponents perfectly. The horde of locusts had thinned out - it was time to target the infantry. The first and one of the few artillery stumbles, the right cannon jammed. While Boon and Mikhail cleaned the cannon, Aleks and Waclaw quickly reloaded theirs. Moments later Waclaw lit the fuse. A powerful blast resounded amidst the harbour buildings. After the dust had settled, nothing remained of the group of slave infantry at which the left cannon was aimed. They all died, the shot was perfect. Moments later, the two men on the right cannon have managed to load it once more and fired towards the right infantry group, also sweeping it away. Lord Marshal Barclay was pleased with the work of the brave Lechians. Suddenly the ground trembled. A terrible roar echoed through the dock. The Devourer of Dobrov arrived. BOON, LOAD UP THAT PLATE! Mikhail shouted to his comrade and rolled the cannon back to clean it. The two on the left cannon did the same. The fight continued. In addition to cannonballs, arrows flew from the gate and two nearby towers. Archers and people manning the catapults hit the enemies well, with more and more locusts flying down dead. It was time for another attempt, the cannons reloaded. Another two blasts resounded. Then the least expected thing happened. The beast, the Devourer of Dobrov, wailed and went back under the surface. The joy of the Lechians was indescribable. The temporary defeat of the centipede gave them courage and strength. It doubled their efficiency. Suddenly, arrows came flying and Boon was hit. As he was pulled back to the tower, the Lord Marshal himself came to help Mikhail operate the cannon. Shortly afterwards Sir Ludolf Barclay arrived and swapped with Duke Wilheim in helping with the right cannon. Unfortunately, despite their efforts, more and more hordes were streaming towards the gate and the huge centipede seemed to be approaching the surface again. The second order was given by Lord Marshal: RETREAT! JAZLOVIECKIS MAN THE CANNONS ON THE STREETS! This was what they did. They fired at the oncoming hordes for as long as possible. They strategically retreated as far as the central barricade where the gunpowder depot was. It all went good until the pavement ripped and a smaller centipede emerged from underneath, probably the offspring of the Devourer. There was no time to waste. The Lechians were shooting fast. Even wounded Boon with a bandage wrapped around his belly helped Mikhail to load the cannon. After all, the pain was less important than duty. Finally one of the cannonballs shot by Aleksander and Waclaw got the smaller centipede and killed it. That was not the last of their problems - there came the Legionnaires. The defenders were outnumbered, they had no chance. Forced to retreat once again, all have abandoned the barricade. Yet one of the Lechians did not retreat. Young Aleksander Jazloviecki stood on the barricade until the very last moment before setting the reserves of gunpowder on fire and running back towards his comrades. The explosion was enormous. Many Legionnaires died, staining the walls and ground with their blood. Another small victory for the Lechian volunteers. The fight was soon to be over, with forces from the harbour gate being pushed back against the palace. All forces were to retreat, except the brave Artillerymen. The Lord Marshal ordered them to fire one last time as soon as the enemy armies came close to the palace. Mikhail and Boon fired first, injuring two Dreadknights. Then fired Aleksander and Waclaw, hitting the incoming Legionnaires with their last grapehsot. After that they were forced to pull back for good along with others. Karosgrad was lost. Their work in defence of Haense and humanity was over. Even though they failed, they did their best to prevent it... From that day the story of the four brave artillerymen, who together resisted the Mori hordes, is known among all Lechians and members of House Jazloviecki. Through all, they prevailed.

  25. The 200 Knights A Ballad detailing the Redclyfian Defenders of Amaethea during the Mori Invasion During the hard-fought siege defense in Amaethea against the Mori invaders, The knights of Redclyf were among the brave descendants who fought on the front rows of the walls. Although greatly outnumbered by both ally and foe, they put up a valiant resistance against the invaders as they attempted to scale the walls, mori being met with arrows, war hammers, swords, and cannonballs thrown at them. The Redclyfians were among the last to withdraw from the walls and Amaethea, having made sure their allies such as the elves and Uruks of the Iron Horde retreated beforehand. The Ballad has been written to commemorate their sacrifice, bravery, and defiance against death and impossible odds. It is played with drums, trumpets, violins, and flutes while the lyrics are sung from the perspective of a father to the brave warriors. A depiction of the 200 redclyfian knights defending the Amaethean farmland walls against Mori and dread knights. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The lyrics of the Ballad: Six of my young lads stay at home and hide the clear gold. The other six in elven lands put the swords to the test. They Ride out to Amaethea with fine maidens on their saddles! Fight the mori on the walls Death before Dishonor! They raised their yew longbows high on the walls, then they let a volley out to the mori below. They Ride out to Amaethea with fine maidens on their saddles! Fight the mori on the walls Death before Dishonor! They fought upon the farmland walls for 3 and 4 lady's hours, The mori fell at Clearon's sword like plants fall for a good scythe. They Ride out to Amaethea with fine maidens on their saddles! Fight the mori on the walls Death before Dishonor! They fought upon the farmland walls, they were all full of wrath the mori fell at Bjorn's warhammer like the snow falling on fields. They Ride out to Amaethea with fine maidens on their saddles! Fight the mori on the walls Death before Dishonor! They fought upon the farmland walls, tired were the redclyfian knights, the moon could not shine bright because of the mist of mori blood! They Ride out to Amaethea with fine maidens on their saddles! Fight the mori on the walls Death before Dishonor! They are overwhelmed by the mori, slowly backing up, Then earth and stone shatter as Bjorn calls out "Death before Dishonor!". They Ride out to Amaethea with fine maidens on their saddles! Fight the mori on the walls Death before Dishonor! So far reached the inspiring words, it resounded in the sheaths, The knights threw themselves back into the fray, held the mori off to let their allies flee. They Ride out to Amaethea with fine maidens on their saddles! Fight the mori on the walls Death before Dishonor! The knights fell back, they board ships all soaked in red, they have successfully defended their fleeing allies and all the descendants fled. They Ride out to Amaethea with fine maidens on their saddles! Fight the mori on the walls Death before Dishonor!
