  7. ‹ ›‹ ›‹ › As of late, some suspicious, horrid sounds have been coming from The Kingdom of Balian's mines, sounds that have never been heard before. Miners who wandered down there to collect minerals could hear screams of some sort coming from the mines before they even entered, most fled in fear. Others who had decided to be more curious paid the consequences for their curiosity. Bodies began piling up in the mines, some sort of monster or monsters had been lurking there for some time now, and it’s been feasting off of the citizens who had dared to travel below. Many others have attempted to force the monster out of the Mines, failing miserably, as none of their plans had worked. This monster cannot be fought alone, NO ONE SHALL ENTER THESE MINES ALONE. If you wish you go fend off this monster we suggest you travel in a group of 5-6. We cannot risk anymore lives of our citizens, it is far too risky. This monster is something many Balianites have never encountered before. It’s to the point that there's no other choice left other than to go down, and fend off this beast.

  14. COWARDLY FLAMES 12th of The First Seed, in the year 88 of our lord 12th Of The First Seed, in the year Within our own Court, a Assassin had slipped through with ill intentions of harming Balians Princess Augustina. We were hosting a ball within our Court room, everything was fine people were dancing and enjoying themselves. As the room emptied, more and more and the princess was more visible since there were no longer crowds of people blocking her. The Assassin had took their chance getting on a balcony that had looked over the court room. Yelling out absurd things, "AVE ORENIA, ALL HAIL KING FREDRICK". They then proceeded to load A arrow into the crossbow, shooting our princess before she had the opportunity to get down and duck the arrow. The mystery Person in question then decided to light themself ablaze and jump from the balcony onto the court rooms floor. Splattering their blood across he floors. Who would've thought the Assassin had been this cowardly that only shooting one person, and then ending their life before anyone else could was their last solution. We have no clue as to who had the person been, their body is charred and we cannot figure out whom it is. This event was obviously planned for some time we'd assume. We shall be more weary of our Guests within Balian after this dreadful event.. Signed, The Rose of Darkwood, Lady Seraphina Katiana Darkwood

  16. Felyx F. Colborn, a Voice for Reform! Simple contemporary oil painting of Felyx F Colborn Introduction Felyx, born in the Second age 64, did not come into the world in a noble household. He worked for everything he has gotten so far, and will continue to serve his Kongzem to the best of his ability. The combined efforts of House Colborn now mean that Felyx is granted a unique position to let his voice be heard. As a child, he worked to start the St. Carolus University which still exists today, has participated in medic lectures, climbed to the rank of Armsman and Officer Cadet by now in the BSK Haeseni Army, and is an avid Adventurer and Poet to the Royal Family. Felyx made many friends during his time, be it commonfolk and nobility alike, and has expanded his horizons by carefully listening to minorities such as Orcs and Elves in Hanseti-Ruska. This has given Felyx the confidence he needs to run for Alderman on this day. Aspirations and Pledges I, Felyx Francys Colborn, do so pledge to honour our community of evolving peoples in-tune with their conservative roots by working with the Duma to issue reforms that benefit the Kongzem in the long-term. I will be your elected dreamer of a brighter future for Haense and, with the know-how and tools I have amassed so far, vow to work hard to listen carefully to anyone who would give me feedback or advice, and implement reforms that I deem necessary for the prosperity of Haense to Krusae Zwy Kongzem! More specifically, I, Felyx will pledge to work on Seven primary points: Promote Crown-endorsed reforms to stimulate political interest of the People of Hanseti-Ruska. Introduce non-politically aligned Commonfolk Societies for greater multi-social representation in our Motherland. Stand for greater Diplomatic cooperation, including a Worker’s Exchange Programme between allied nations to foster more open-minded generations who are willing to accept the diversity of Hanseti-Ruska and Almaris as a whole. Promote theological debates led by the Church across various beliefs, using a novel, proposed technique, coined: “Deep Listening”. Work to integrate the aforementioned “Deep Listening” into the Duma, which will hopefully bridge divides between opposite opinions to reach compromises. Introduce a Koeng or Koenas Royal Jubilee, in coordination with the BSK, every 5 years to celebrate the efforts of the Crown. Introduce a “World Pilgrimage” with the consent of the Church, in order to become aware of different and opposing cultures and beliefs, to reinforce Godan’s virtues and learn to live harmoniously with others despite opposing views. These are just a chunk of ideas I have deemed worthy to put to paper. Being a soldier of the BSK, I find it important that we can avoid War as much as possible. However, peacetime is never a reason to stop training and drilling diligently. I will take my discipline and dedication from the Army when pursuing my goals within the Duma. With great Passion Felyx Francys Colborn stands by his values, and hopes to work alongside Duma members with his Aspirations, by the pleasure of the Electorates of Hanseti-Ruska!
  17. Disclaimer: This is not public knowledge, merely an account of the first of many events happening within the adunians. 𝓣𝓱𝓮 𝓗𝓮𝓻𝓪𝓵𝓭𝓲𝓷𝓰 𝓸𝓯 𝓽𝓱𝓮 𝓣𝓱𝓻𝓮𝓮 Storms had raged around the Lordship of Cartref Mor for many a WIldwynn day, killing its crops, plaguing the cattle and beasts. An omen had made itself clear amongst the town, and in doing so, did it herald the arrival of an individual. For many days the Lord of Cartref Mor gained letters, written in an odd sanguine coloration, detailing trials to come. The storms were but the precursor, a taste of what was to truly come, and it was upon that third day. When the roaring winds died down, and the clattering of hooves on ice drew near, the people of that Lordship left those warm walls. Caution had always plagued the Adunian people, and it was that caution now that drove the Lord to find what was going on. “SO THIS IS WHAT THE FOUNDINGS OF HARREN AND SARAI HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO! HIDING LIKE RATS INSIDE OF RICKETY WOODEN WALLS!” A voice, dry and raspy like smoke, bellowed out in the winds. Mockery evident in their manner of speech, as the figure of a hooded crone could be seen amongst the snow laden foothills. The Lord made his way over to those wooden walls, his glowing gaze akin to that of the ice that rose from the peaks near the regions of Norland. Yet as he drew near, did that voice continue on, rising in volume and intensity. “Who is that Lord, that has led you so, that rules amongst these lands!” The glowing gaze of the lord found itself moving to the old crone, his feet moving for him as he descended down. As his people drew bows, and clutched swords. As their lips spoke threats, so did the Lord of Cartref Mor find his scarred maw opening to speak to the one that had arrived. “I am Aurelion Marsyr, Lord of the lands of Cartref Mor. Who are you, to yell and mock my people?” As his leather clad boots found that rough worn path, as he drew near, so did he find his gaze lingering upon the elden woman. His gaze found those familiar features, ears that held a slight point, and eyes that held a blue hue to them. Features that, despite old, held the look of someone far older than they appeared to be. So did he find himself continuing, fear filled him, yes. But not of her, rather, of the reasoning of why an old woman such as herself may be here. A look of shock spread across her withered features, almost as though such a statement of him being the lord was a joke. “You?!? You're the Lord of Cartref Mor?!?.....I expected someone more noteworthy!” He found his words leaving his mouth for him, such a phrase, often leaving his mouth as he spoke to the traveler. His tone akin to the ice and cold that laid bare across Cartref, his demeanor was calm rather then brash or quick like his kin as of current. “Most often are shocked to find me as the lord, yet still you do not answer my questions, what is your reasoning for being here. Who are you?” The old crone seemed to grumble and mumble out of annoyance, before she stepped down closer to the lord. The woman looked over at him, before finally answering in that long drawn out tone. “I am Tindromiel, High Priestess of the Trinity Priesthood, and I have come because I have seen a vision. Of ruin and flames to the adunic people, but also, of a reborn era. Of the days of old once more flourishing within our people, of the days of the High Kingdom!” The lord's blood ran cold as he heard these words, his eyes widened as heard mention of these visions. Images that he himself had seen, of that dark and desolate day, of those fires that raged about the corpses of his people. Yet it was more shocking that she would mention such days, of the elden days of their people, of those days he had only ever heard legend about. His curiosity grew, like those roaring winds that had descended. The lord found himself speaking, before his thoughts had fully processed. “I give you one hour within my halls, to explain what exactly you mean. One hour only, is that understood?” That crone's blue eyes gleamed with mockery and mischief as she bellowed out in that loud tone once more. “You will be having me more then one hour, this will be a stay that will result in my leave. ONLY, when the Trinity deem it so!” He found himself gritting his teeth for the first time since this encounter, the usually calm and unfazed man, being bothered by this entire encounter. Yet still, did he accept such terms, his feet guiding him down as those few who had come outside lowered their bows, and sheathed their blades. His people, finding their way back inside of that long and cold hall. Aurelion would take a seat, upon that raised dais. His gaze lowered to the crone, she, who had brought forth the cold and misery within recent months. She greedily took to the food, and drank the warm tea. Her harsh words, finding purchase in the few guests that had arrived. After some time, with rabid ramblings, did she begin to tell her tale. “I have seen all your outcomes, I have seen the bodies of your families, of the flames of ruin spreading across the town of Cartref Mor. I have seen banners of white petaled flowers, risen high to claim those of our kin. Yet, I’ve also seen success, guidance finally in those willing to take it. Of our kingdom reborn, and of our people rebuilt. Yet such is not an easy task, for it requires you to be worthy of those Tools of the Trinity.” Most within the hall, muttered in their seats, some fearful of such an outcome. Yet others, mocking. The occasional ‘farce’ and ‘con-artist’, thrown within the slew of comments that resounded about the table. One such individual, a man with darkened hair, and a child next to him. Spoke arrogantly and angrily at the woman. “Cartref Mor is more than just a place! It is a people, and a proud people at that! We’ve no fear, for even if our walls are broken and our home destroyed. We will thrive just as well, without worry!” Next did a woman, silver haired and with a worried motherly expression. Chime in to add her thoughts, and concerns. “Can we not wish for a better life for our children? For them to merely have greener fields, without worry of some trial or conflict?” As these were spoken, so did that haggard voice shriek to those others huddled about the table. “So you are content to remain inside wooden walls and barren fields? Of a cramped keep and cold stone floors. You wish for this life for your kin and your kins future kin?” The wise-woman's words spat out, similar to that of a snake spitting venom. Anger was building and rising, tensions growing as she spoke the names of those adunians who attempted to speak out or dissuade her thinking. Oliver, Aobh, and Arnarra. All whose visions and futures, if not done right, led to death and sickness. As more spoke, more was revealed, more was shown to that hold of adunians. Yet still, did the lord remain silent, his ears taking in those words and knowledge of wisdom. Yet his eyes, they searched about that keep. They looked at those wooden beams, of that old stone made in the hands of not them, rather a people prior. Of flags that had merely become strips of cloth, only recently gaining that meaning again. He turned to his people, and what he saw was not unity, rather a fear. A hopelessness, people willing to submit themselves for an ounce of so called freedom, of self respect. He saw, not a lively people, rather the ones mentioned in all those tomes. He saw people, still hiding, still reluctant in their ways of old. The true ways of old for them. Slowly, did he come to stand, his voice cutting through the crowd of people. His words, attempting to find purchase within the hearts and minds of his brothers and sisters. “You are right, we should be wishing for those green hills for our kin to roam in. You are right, Cartref Mor is a people, rather than a place. It is more than just a keep upon a shore, or a town bordering the sea. Yet, do you not wish to regain what was stolen from us all those centuries ago? To regain that respect that was once held for our people and kin? We were once proud and mighty, yet here we reside, roaming for scraps of food and our history. Some, bowing to people and beings that hold very little care for us. Here, do we hold a chance to regain something lost to us from ages past. Here do we hold the chance to unify as a people, to grow as a people. Some of you may be willing to submit, yet I as your leader will not allow you to! I refuse to allow you all to fall prey to those that would care little for your being, and for your health. I, as leader, refuse for you to give up on forgetting those that still guide you to this day. I refuse, for us to merely quiet. To stay sedentary and complacent in our actions, to fall prey to the chains of time. I REFUSE TO LET OUR PEOPLE WASTE AWAY!” His words echoed through the halls, silence resounding through the dimly lit room, as the Lord of Cartref Mor began to walk down the dais. His speech, not yet finished, the elden fires within him only stirring and growing faster and faster. “No longer shall we stay merely subservient to our ways, to the ideology that was thrusted upon us as our youth. For now, is not the age of silence, of hiding. Now, it is the age of revitalization, of our freedom, of the WILL OF THE ADUNIANS!” Silence bounced through the walls, emptiness resounding about, before a clap began to be heard. Followed by another, and another, soon like the choirs of a church. Did the hall erupt into a roar, both frightening yet true. A fire had been lit for the people, and it grew with every cheer and prayer. Many within the hall dipped their heads, and many pledged their blade and body to the cause. To the trials that the people ahead would face. So did the Adunic Lord look about, to his people, his kin. All who bore now, a look of new determination, of resolution. “There is the Lord of Cartref Mor I was expecting.” The crone's voice echoed out, and as it did, so would he turn to face her. Cold determination within his gaze, as the leader of the adunians spoke to her. “You told us of trials, if such is the case, what shall be our first?” Slowly did the crone's lips curve into a withered smile, her hunched form starting to make her way from the table to the door. Her voice echoing throughout the halls of the newly renewed adunic people. “Your first trial shall be announced in the coming Wildwynn days, a trial for Maria, the Mother. Spend this time praying, and preparing. For these trials, will not be any easy thing.” The lord nodded, his own scarred lips curving into a smile, one born from the readiness of doing his eternal duty to his kin. “Then we shall speak in those coming days, may the Ancestors guide you but most certainly, may they guide us to our completion of this task.”

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!
  19. [!] With joy, copies of this missive were not only scattered across Karosgrad, but placed neatly at the doors of the manors and keeps of all the Kingdom’s peers, and each house. To those outside of the city, special invitations were sent by an Aviary. [A drawing from a different artist, depicting Elizaveta in deep conversation and planning with the patron spirit of the event – the dear Raven.] THE FANTASTICAL WEDDINGPALOOZA THE UNION OF ELIZAVETA ALBAN & BARLEY WICK An invitation TO THE MERRY AND UNORDINARY For the 6th, in the month of Joma & Umund, 429 E.S VA BIRODEO HERZENAV, EDLERVIK AG KOMYNZ, Following two long decades of being raised side by side as lifelong, childhood friends, naturally – and for everyone to see – a passionate love has blossomed. And through many years of hurdling the restrictions of status and rank, this joyous pair has finally set the time that their souls should be mended together as one in holy matrimony. In line with the complex mind of Lady Alban, this event seeks to forgo the usual bore that comes with the dull feasts and waltzes that follow the wedding ceremony. Thus, the concept of a WEDDINGPALOOZA was born. Though all are invited, should the sight of the unordinary and uncanny of creatures frighten or anger you, consider skipping this event and staying home – for not only is this Weddingpalooza for the people, it is for the creatures who have accompanied the couple their whole life. Even before the wedding takes place, preparations will begin mere days before, based on the many tales and stories the pair has read. The groom is set to depart on a hunt with his dear friends, where they hunt down THREE RAVENS precisely, all while gathering the bones of various animals along the way. These spoils are then given to the bride, as she prepares them for use during the ceremony. The ceremony and events in question will take place in Jerovitz – for there could be no other place than the lands where the couple grew up side by side. Under the watchful eye of GOD, they will be wed in the Chapel of the Venerable Primrose Kortrevich, to be immediately followed by constant merriment and celebration in the form of THREE grand activities: THE DANCE OF TRANSCENDENCE With the month of the matrimony being the harshest in winter, just outside the keep, a grand bonfire will be lit – fueled by the remains of the spoils of the hunt. All invitees are encouraged to join the newlyweds as they dance around its flames, warming themselves – accompanied by song and music. Vials of ‘Transcendence’ and cups of Carrion Black will be provided to promote a more exciting experience. In line with the ongoing theme, three songs will be sung – and nearing the very last one, should the couple be spotted slipping away, guests will dash forth with a dubious prank! During this, the rats – the chosen animal of House Wick – will be given their very own dug-out hole, and attendees will gain the chance to see their own spectacular dance. THE RAT CHASE The spawn of Sergi-boy, first of his name, have been bred with speeds of great renown. The largest rat of his house, Sergi-boy VIII, is a rat of legend – a rat no man has been able to catch. Guests who dare to take on the myth will be led on a chase around Jerovitz, trying to pin a tail on his behind. The very first to do this will be, with the permission of Sir Candle Wick, crowned CHAMPION OF THE WICKWALD. THE WHEAT BOWL For the manliest of men and artists of the blade, a tournament will be held in the newlyweds’ honor. Before dueling, fighters must lather themselves in the very dirt they seek to battle on, sticking onto their armor the feathers of a bird of their choice. The last standing will be named champion, the GRAND RAVEN PRINCE (regardless of gender), and given the almighty BLACK HELM. During all the festivities, food will be provided for all – including special sustenance for creatures, fae, and deities.

  22. "The Stag is blessed with a crown of forked lightning The Caribou's hooves roar over the land like thunder The Elk's voice the screaming wind of the tempest" Excerpt from the Legend of the StormTreader, Guardian of the Storm Moon When the final lunar phase of the spring months has passed, the kin of the Mother Circle know that the harsher times of the lunar calendar is upon them. The clouds churn into great veils of shadow and storm, washing the land with a cleansing rain. When the sky illuminates with the crash of thunder, it is said that the mythical StormTreader stags are clashing their antlers together. Rain cascades over the earth like a tide to cleanse the remnants of the old and warn of the scorching summer months to come, and lightning strikes the land to smite wayward, trespassing spirits of Draoi. To honor the story of this fable, the Mother Circle gathers for a grand hunt and the creation of the Lunar Year's Tempest Crown. The tradition begins with two hunting parties representing the Wind and Rain of a summer storm. Venturing into the wilds, the hunters harvest a deer, elk, or caribou to obtain the antlers required for the creation of the Tempest Crown. Then, a grand reenactment of the clashing of horns is held between two chosen warriors of each hunting party. Using only the horned helms they have created, they endure combat during the first summer storm until one of the crowns break. The remaining artifact is exalted as the year's Tempest Crown, a symbol of the Circle's resilience during real and spiritual storms. When lightning strikes, kin beware; For the draoi and slothful druid Are one in the same in the eye of the storm ((6/14 7:30-8pm est start))

  25. TO INFORM / VIGILANT 'THILL From the Office of Elokarir'mali, Issued 10th of The First Seed, Year 77 of the Second Age Every member of the Blessed Citizenry should be aware of late assaults, committed by a coven of Frost Witches. These creatures are devious in appearance, possessing fluctuating forms, they feed on the blood of men and attempt to lure women. It is advised that citizens manoeuvre in the company of another or optimally multiple others. Report any suspicious happenings or beings to Elokarir’tir or another councillor. Be on your guard — vigilant ‘thill. Through the schisms of Lomal and all who have attempted to do so since. Through the assailment attempted by Aengudaemon and Draconic beings, and various grand tragedies of the natural elements. Through each and every migration of the descendants, battles great, challenges multifarious, The Silver State of Haelun’or has endured. When the Motherland is faced with any prospect of danger, it is our sworn duty to end the threat as soon as possible. ALL RISE TO DEFEND THE MOTHERLAND AY'SOHAER ALAION MIRAVARIS, AY'LARIHEI MAEHR'SAE HIYLUN'EHYA
