The purpose of this post is to shed a little light on each side and give newcomers a better sense of background going into future events. For those new to the Void Rising arc, specifically the Kingdom Corrupted sub-arc and wishing to do a little catching up, please refer to these two posts: http://vboards.stratics.com/lake-austin-em-forum/198100-small-recap-events-thus-far-4-28-a.html http://vboards.stratics.com/lake-austin-em-forum/218135-recap-events-thus-far-7-30-a.html With the Morte Rossa quest having concluded, if you wish to declare a side, please post on the following thread: http://vboards.stratics.com/lake-austin-em-forum/224305-changing-guard-list-supporters.html or leave a book in mailbox at the LA Fairgrounds (There is a portal next to the EM Hall in Britain) Though the Banishing has failed, the Shadow of the Void was severely weakened and if not for the timely intervention of the Ouyus Tor ritualists, may have been sealed away entirely despite the failed ritual. However the newly crowned Warlord-Prince Juntos is moving ahead with his plans, and openly reveals his servants to be the force behind the unleashing of the Void into Britannia, declaring open war against the young Queen Dawn and the Kingdom of Britannia. Both leaders have appealed to any willing to aid them in their cause, promising glory and reward to those that bring them victory. The Kingdom of Britannia Leader: Dawn, Queen of Britannia and her immediate subordinates among the Royal Court. Mission: To protect and safeguard the land and peoples of Britannia, specifically the area of Trammel and maintain a nominal presence in Felucca (though the majority of the loyal Britannians in Felucca operate outside the jurisdiction of the Dawnite Crown), and unite the land underneath a banner of Virtuous teaching and mutual respect. It is also the mission of the Kingdom to preserve, strengthen, and uphold alliances with neighboring independent kingdoms, the free people of the Meer, the Elves of Heartwood, and the gargoyles of Ter Mur lead by Queen Zhah, against all external threats. The Mistas Faction of the Juka Armies Leader: The Warlord-Prince Juntos, advised by a council of Elders in conjunction with the Cult of the Void (Ouyus Tor), the most powerful arcane organization known in Ilshenar. Mission: As publicly stated, it is the wishes of the Prince to unite not only the land of Ilshenar but all of the facets underneath a banner of peace and the Greater Good and the ancient teachings of the Way, whether through diplomacy or arms. It is well known that his largest obstacle to fulfilling his mission is the Kingdom of Britannia and her allies.
