  1. [[Hokay, logged on like 45 minutes before the event. Cut out lots of superfluous stuff but included the chatter from when I first logged in, as it was explaining what happened prior to Gurashi's awakening]
  2.  
  3. Before the Master Ravenwood Tree.
  4. The dark heart of Glomdoring Forest is almost audibly beating in this, its shadowy centre. Tall, blackened trees surround this clearing, pressing together into an imposing barrier of rotten vegetation. Moulds and fungi are smeared across the plants, their pungent stench suffusing the forest. The branches are coated in dark slime, slick tendrils that hang downwards. Although a variety of trees might actually grow here, the black tar that coats them renders them indistinguishable. A thin black mist creeps between the trees, hanging low across the ground. The floor of the clearing itself is simply bare earth, cracked and dry. Overshadowing all is the Master Ravenwood Tree itself, jutting into the sky like a twisted fist. The sound of laughing crows echoes down from the treetops, a harsh sound for the ears below. The atmosphere vibrates with a palpable power. Brennan Stormcrow paces here, his cadaverous body twitching with sudden jerks. The Master Ravenwood Tree towers over everything here, pulsing with an immeasurable yet dark power. Casting darkness all around, a shadow totem thrusts up from the ground, chilling the air. Tan'ah, the wombat is here, playfully digging. Lyria Ysav'rai stands here, an unnatural silence clinging to her like a shroud. She wields a mystic cudgel in her left hand. Proselyte Regat Stormcrow, Shadow of Blood is here. He wields a honed waraxe of bloody shadows with both hands. Disciple of the Tah'vrai, Valonah Bel'Fiore Soul of Darkness is here, shrouded. She wields a pink rose wreathed bottle in her left hand and a magic spatula in her right. Disciple of the Tah'vrai, Daem Bel'Fiore of Relentless Darkness with an Angel face drifts here, vibrant blossoms surging out of the ground around him. He wields an athame dagger in his left hand. Allixea is here, perched upon Lyria's shoulder. Proselyte Esei, of the Ascending Dusk is here. She wields an athame dagger in her right hand. Clad in matte black leather, a golden-eyed savage lingers here like a living shadow.

  94.

  96.  
  97. Spirit Warden Xenthos An'Ryshe, the Ebon Strategist says to you, "I saw Lief influencing the Dryads. Went to kill them. Got two. Pysynne came in, I figured that was enough of a point so I left."
  98.  
  99. Xenthos purses his lips pensively, gazing off into the distance as he carefully gathers his thoughts.
  100.  
  101. You have emoted: Gurashi tilts his head, chittering softly. "...oh, were doing hijinks in Lady of Serenity's realm?"
  102.  
  103. Showing that you understand, you nod your head slowly towards Xenthos.
  104.  
  105. Spirit Warden Xenthos An'Ryshe, the Ebon Strategist says, "Then Pysynne started sending me taunting notes."

  122.  
  123. You blink.
  124.

  146.  
  147. Proselyte Esei, of the Ascending Dusk says, "Around a month ago, I received an action origami of Her own making. When opened, it told me that 'colors spread'. I have no idea what that would mean."

  150.

  188.  
  189. Proselyte Esei, of the Ascending Dusk says, "I would have shared it earlier, but it never felt like the right time."
  190.  
  191. You have emoted: Gurashi's mandibles click quietly against his face as he too takes a moment to glance skyward. Finally he rests his hand atop Bizirik's head, eliciting a small chirp of joy from the leothin.
  192.  
  193. Rancoura's gaze darkens intricately as it reaches the bottom of the letter, the stationery held gingerly within her fingers as though composed of some distasteful matter. "Perhaps," she whispers. "Much can be presumed from the Lady's words, and as we now know, She is not beyond utilizing uncomely methods to achieve Her aims."
  194.

  206. Regat, Rancoura, Valonah, Daem, Esei, Gurashi.
  207.  
  208. Regat inhales deeply, staring off into the bushes. Unfocused eyes scan the perimeter warily before he nods to Rancoura.
  209.  
  210. Disciple of the Tah'vrai, Daem Bel'Fiore of Relentless Darkness says, "Very interesting."
  211.  
  212. Proselyte Esei, of the Ascending Dusk says, "Would anyone else like to read the letter?"
  213.  
  214. You read what is written on redolent peach blossom stationery:
  215. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
  216.  
  217. Little one,
  218.  
  219. I see you are a seed just beginning to sprout.
  220.  
  221. Your message has been duly noted and received. What a
  222. creative imagining for a menacing flower, and though I
  223. find the subject pitiable, the portrait contained within
  224. has certainly been masterfully painted.
  225.  
  226. We paint not for the sake of painting, but to connect with
  227. others. We paint to fill an intrinsic need for Communion
  228. between our souls and the souls around us. In doing this,
  229. we hope to Express some small portion of our selves and
  230. the truths we nurture within, hidden from view.
  231.  
  232. You, Esei of the Ascending Dusk, have successfully
  233. Expressed your connection to the Silent Lord. Your paper
  234. flower mimics the snapdragon which had pierced His Divine
  235. flesh, though its appearance has been twisted - as all
  236. things wyrden must be. Your sketch shows your desire to
  237. protect and defend Him. In silence you laid this blossom
  238. down near the very stone once used to atone for someone's
  239. unwitting manipulation at the Silent Lord's hands, and
  240. just as the stone can never be moved, so too have you
  241. enchanted your flower.
  242.  
  243. In silence you placed this message, and yet it screams as
  244. loudly as a crow's raucous caw.
  245.  
  246. In exchange, I give to you an offering in kind. I wonder
  247. whether you will hear the message over the din of your
  248. wyrden woods.
  249.  
  250. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
  251. Redolent peach blossom stationery is holding:
  252. Nothing.
  253.  
  254. Daem whispers something into Valonah's ear.
  255.  
  256. 'Oh?' Valonah exclaims quizzically at Daem.
  257.  
  258. Daem nods his head at Valonah.
  259.  
  260. Bizirik, the leothin lets out a deep, low rumble, pressing its pointed face into Gurashi's idly hanging hand.
  261.  
  262. Bizirik's head begins to droop. It opens its great maw and curls back its lips to allow its forked tongue to unfurl as it yawns before snapping its mouth shut.
  263.  
  264. Faintly buzzing, you say to Esri, "Do not see that much of these days. Are keeping busy?"
  265.  
  266. In a hushed yet warm voice, Disciple of the Thorned Willow Esri, Proselyte of the Awakening says to you, "Been very busy lost in many thoughts these past few months."
  267.  
  268. You have emoted: Gurashi nods at Esri, soothingly petting the leothin's head as it continues to thrum.
  269.  
  270. Rancoura's head tilts, a simple movement.
  271.  
  272. Bizirik, the leothin chirps happily.
  273.  
  274. The shadows tremble and then part, allowing Nocht, the Silent to step through.
  275.  
  276. You blink.
  277.  
  278. You see the following people here:
  279. Rancoura, Regat, Esri, Allixea, Esei, Evette, Daem, Valonah, Nocht, Gurashi.
  280.  
  281. Faintly buzzing, you exclaim to Nocht, "....oh!"
  282.  
  283. CHECK OUT YA BOI NOCHT
  284. Were it not for the way darkness itself trails after His form it would not be immediately obvious that He is a radiant immortal. His entire form is concealed beneath a hooded cloak. His only feature visible, His eyes - a brilliant ethereal blue rimmed in golden starburst, intense in their piercing gaze.
  285. He is wearing:
  286. an all-concealing cloak of darkest black
  287. a fractured gem suspended from a thin, metal chain
  288. boots of shifting shadow.
  289.  
  290. Rancoura humbly drops one knee to the ground before Nocht, genuflecting reverently in His presence.

  305.  
  306. Nocht, the Silent whispers to Rancoura, "It is good that you are suspicious, My little one."
  307.  
  308. You have emoted: Gurashi quickly claps two hands over his mouth, then fumblingly offers half a bow.
  309.  
  310. A wan smile touches Rancoura's pale lips, and she bows her head to Nocht.
  311.  
  312. Nodding to the others present, Nocht, the Silent whispers, "Greetings, dear Glomdoring."
  313.  
  314. Regat exhales slowly, allowing a long fluid breath to creep from his lungs.
  315.  
  316. Spirit Warden Xenthos An'Ryshe, the Ebon Strategist says, "Greetings, Lord Nocht."
  317.  
  318. Voice muffled through his hands, you say to Nocht, "M-many greetings."
  319.  
  320. Bizirik, the leothin chirps happily at Nocht.
  321.  
  322. Reverently, Disciple of the Tah'vrai, Daem Bel'Fiore of Relentless Darkness asks Nocht, "Are you feeling better?"
  323.  
  324. Bizirik's head begins to droop. It opens its great maw and curls back its lips to allow its forked tongue to unfurl as it yawns before snapping its mouth shut.
  325.  
  326. Disciple of the Tah'vrai, Daem Bel'Fiore of Relentless Darkness says, "I no longer see signs of those snapdragons."
  327.  
  328. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "Thanks to the forest, I retain enough strength to do what must be done."
  329.  
  330. In a panicked, whistling voice, you exclaim to Bizirik, the leothin, "DonotberudeandyawninfrontofDivine!"
  331.  
  332. Bizirik, the leothin stares implacably at you.
  333.  
  334. Ilistala, an enormous leopard stares implacably at Bizirik, the leothin.
  335.  
  336. Nocht raises a hand to His chest, the skin sickly and gray before speaking, "They are still there, little ones. My curse is not yet lifted."
  337.  
  338. Xenthos purses his lips pensively, gazing off into the distance as he carefully gathers his thoughts.
  339.  
  340. Your mandibles twitch slightly as you voice a brief, curious chirr.
  341.  
  342. Esei creases her brow in a frown.
  343.  
  344. Daem creases his brow in a frown.
  345.  
  346. Finally dropping his hands, you say to Nocht, "... oh."
  347.  
  348. Spirit Warden Xenthos An'Ryshe, the Ebon Strategist says, "How might we make that come to pass more swiftly?"
  349.  
  350. Valonah tilts her head and listens intently to Nocht.
  351.  
  352. Regat creases his brow in a frown.
  353.  
  354. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "That is what I come to ask of you all. A first ingredient towards a cure."
  355.  
  356. Xenthos nods his head once, leaning closer to listen.
  357.  
  358. The shadowfires captured within Rancoura's irises expand, engulfing their colours completely in pale darkness as she gazes at her Lord, as though seeking to sight beyond His shadows.
  359.  
  360. With a gasp, you ask Nocht, "...is a cure? Wowee - that's great! What need?"
  361.  
  362. Nocht, the Silent whispers to Rancoura, "Who is the young one who spoke to you of the creature named Shashi?"
  363.  
  364. Rancoura exhales slowly, allowing a long fluid breath to creep from her lungs.
  365.  
  366. Regat blanches suddenly.
  367.  
  368. In smooth, silken tones, Lady Haruspex Rancoura So'hthae, Ole'noc Caihel whispers, "Proselyte Regat. One of my Augurs."
  369.  
  370. Rancoura inclines her head politely to Regat.
  371.  
  372. Spirit Warden Xenthos An'Ryshe, the Ebon Strategist says, "We were just attacking Shashi a short time ago, though we were unable to actually kill her."
  373.  
  374. You blink.
  375.  
  376. Proselyte Regat Stormcrow, Shadow of Blood says, "Shashi may be put to better use than simple slaying."
  377.  
  378. Nocht turns His gaze on Regat before reaching forward and plucking a viciously sharp athame out of the air, its blade as white as bone.
  379.  
  380. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "On no, little ones. I think you have the right idea. You simply lack the proper tools."
  381.  
  382. Comprehension flashes across Xenthos's face.
  383.  
  384. You boggle at Nocht.
  385.  
  386. Allixea ponders the situation.
  387.  
  388. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "Then will you be able to lead another assault on Her realm, little ones? There may not be a second chance once My target is clear."
  389.  
  390. Xenthos nods his head emphatically.
  391.  
  392. Spirit Warden Xenthos An'Ryshe, the Ebon Strategist says, "Let us do it right now."
  393.  
  394. Regat gives the world a smart salute.
  395.  
  396. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "Then..."
  397.  
  398. Faintly buzzing, you ask Nocht, "...will help make better to do, yes?"

  418. Xenthos nods his head emphatically.
  419.  
  420. Nocht gives a bone-white athame to Lady Haruspex Rancoura So'hthae, Ole'noc Caihel.

  423.  
  424. With a low bow of her head, Lady Haruspex Rancoura So'hthae, Ole'noc Caihel whispers to Nocht, "I shall wield it, in Your name."
  425.  
  426. "Ooohhhhhhhhhh," says Esri.
  427.  
  428. You beam broadly at Rancoura.
  429.  
  430. (Glomdoring): Xenthos says, "We will be assaulting a Divine's Realm."
  431.  
  432. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "You need only use it once you are close to the beast."
  433.  
  434. You give the world a smart salute.
  435.  
  436. Faintly buzzing, you say to Xenthos, "Am ready to do the thing."
  437.

  441.  
  442. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "One last thought...."
  443.  
  444. Proselyte Regat Stormcrow, Shadow of Blood says, "Shall we bring the beast to You, or is slaying it with the athame enough to do Your will?"
  445.  
  446. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "It is not strictly necessary, but if you can collect some of his feathers they may be of use to Me."
  447.

  484.  
  485. LOOK SHASHI
  486. Crowned by a ring of deep blue feathers, the white facial markings on this beautiful peacock give him a certain inquisitive expression. His eyes are pure gold in colour and filled with intelligence and compassion. The rest of his body is as blue as the sky before dawn except for the feet ending in small, sharp talons. His glorious tail feathers are folded neatly behind him, the brilliant greens and golds luminous and the many eye-like markings augmenting his beautiful plumage illuminated with a divine glow.
  487. Shashi does not even register your presence as a threat.
  488.

  517.  
  518. You wince in pain.
  519.  
  520. You think to yourself: Why did Lady Maylea steal from Lord Nocht in first place.
  521.  
  522. You think to yourself: Why are not friends anymore.
  523.  
  524. Mahin appears in a swirl of rose-tinted tails, snarling and growling as she tries to defend Shashi. "You will not bring violence to the Lady's realm!"

  531.  
  532. (Seriously, a ton of fighting and discussion of possibly there being a bug? LMAO)
  533.  
  534. Rancoura clutches a bone-white athame firmly, preparing to use it.
  535. With a perfectly silent, elegant flourish Rancoura plunges the bone-white athame deep into the flesh of Shashi, coating it in blood. Icy whispers twist through the air as the colour and life drains out of Shashi, seemingly being absorbed into the still burried blade. With a vicious yank, Rancoura frees the athame from teh bird's flesh.
  536.  
  537. With a high, warbling cry that pierces the air, Shashi's body disappears, bursting into a rainbow cloud of feathers that scatter away like a dream destroyed.

  551. You think to yourself: ...is too late.
  552.  
  553. Xenthos pulls hard on a luminous peacock feather, and it comes away lightly like gossamer, shimmering with radiant colour. You sense a hint of divine essence within.

  556.

  580.  
  581. Before the Master Ravenwood Tree.
  582. The dark heart of Glomdoring Forest is almost audibly beating in this, its shadowy centre. Tall, blackened trees surround this clearing, pressing together into an imposing barrier of rotten vegetation. Moulds and fungi are smeared across the plants, their pungent stench suffusing the forest. The branches are coated in dark slime, slick tendrils that hang downwards. Although a variety of trees might actually grow here, the black tar that coats them renders them indistinguishable. A thin black mist creeps between the trees, hanging low across the ground. The floor of the clearing itself is simply bare earth, cracked and dry. Overshadowing all is the Master Ravenwood Tree itself, jutting into the sky like a twisted fist. The sound of laughing crows echoes down from the treetops, a harsh sound for the ears below. The atmosphere vibrates with a palpable power.
  583.  
  584. You let loose a long breath from your lungs, exhaling slowly.
  585.  
  586. Crek grins mischievously at Rancoura.
  587.  
  588. Daem proudly shows off a luminous peacock feather:
  589. Impossible to mistake as anything but the plume of a noble peacock, this feather is long enough that it can only be from the creature's tail. It ripples in luminous shades of green and gold, one colour bleeding into the next like the glossy ripple of water. In one or two places, shocks of indigo make eye-like markings across the barbs, illuminated with an almost divine glow.
  590.  
  591. You have emoted: Gurashi carefully lifts one of the shining feathers over his head, examining it closely. "...gosh."

  601. (Glomdoring): Daem says, "I have three of the feathers."
  602.  
  603. (Glomdoring): Xenthos says, "I have two."

  622.  
  623. In smooth, silken tones, Lady Haruspex Rancoura So'hthae, Ole'noc Caihel whispers, "The Silent One shall come for them."

  657. Disciple of the Tah'vrai, Daem Bel'Fiore of Relentless Darkness says, "We have been ready to take the fight to Maylea for many months."
  658.  
  659. Disciple of the Tah'vrai, Daem Bel'Fiore of Relentless Darkness says, "We encountered no resistance, which seems odd."
  660.  
  661. Xenthos nods in firm agreement. "None of us cared to see Her assault You."
  662.  
  663. Proselyte Regat Stormcrow, Shadow of Blood says, "Beyond odd."
  664.  
  665. Jittering slightly, you say to Daem, "...is true."
  666.  
  667. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "And so you did. Shashi is no more."

  674.  
  675. Nocht, the Silent whispers to Rancoura, "The athame, little one?"
  676.  
  677. You think to yourself: Is weird that was no resistance. Is weird that Lady of Serenity did not come to aid of own fancybird.
  678.  
  679. You think to yourself: Feels weird. Feels off. Feels full of moths.
  680.  
  681. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "Our realms and temples are no stranger to attacks."
  682.  
  683. Spirit Warden Xenthos An'Ryshe, the Ebon Strategist says, "I remember when You sent us to Her temple to steal the Eye, through the mirrors."
  684.  
  685. Xenthos purses his lips pensively, gazing off into the distance as he carefully gathers his thoughts.
  686.  
  687. Daem nods his head emphatically.
  688.  
  689. Valonah silently nods her head in agreement.
  690.  
  691. Nocht, the Silent whispers, "You could not normally overcome the creature and once you did, there was nothing She could have done."
  692.  
  693. You twiddle your thumbs.
  694.  
  695. Rancoura purses her lips, deep in thought.
  696.
