    Part 1:The Darkness of our Times

    The Energy Bolt flashed across the sandstone courtyard before crashing into the oncoming Paladin. Exploding in a brilliant light, the Paladins still form was sent crashing over the bridge, and into the water below. Va'lis whipped his hand towards the farthest one, and the Obsidian Dagger was sent plunging into the mans neck. He had perhaps a milisecond to react before the dagger exploded, ending the man brutally and painfully.

    The Paladins had attacked with no warning, and no mercy was shown by them. It was only fitting, that they be shown with none as well.

    The carnage was, in his honest opinion, a work of art.

    It had only been a few days since he had pledged himself to the Shadowlords, but either of madness or curiosity, who knew? All that mattered was the power he felt, and the glee he obtained from ending the lives of mortal fools.

    Leaving the desolate lands behind him, he began to wonder to himself..
    "What, I wonder, Will occur later this eve?..."

    The desolate halls of the Shadowlord Base glistened with fresh blood, as well as old, festering bodies littered the ground and the smell of death was in the air. Glorious to one such as he.

    Moving through the halls, Va’lis emerged into a room beneath the Sigils, its center held a moongate the color of an obsidian rock. A group stood there, members he thought, until they struck him down. Interesting, that those other Shadowlord members would hinder any help… He shrugged it off and after speaking darkly the word, “Chaos” as he had heard in his head, he was teleported to Melissa, Mistress of the Shadowlords.

    She spoke of Clainin, the new Royal Council, the Shadowlords and…death. She called those gathered, to join against the mage who had survived so much. She called us against Clainin. She strode about the room, laughing darkly with madness every so often as she outlined her plan for the death of the mage.

    Grinning with anticipation, she opened a gate to Trinsic. Instructing us to decorate the sandstone in gore, and blood and anything else of grisly nature. We were only to keen to oblige.

    Rushing forth, we burst into the Paladins barracks, when we discovered Clainin, and his Royal Guard. The guard fell quickly to the special “Obsidian Daggers”, exploding upon impact and cutting short the lives of Clainins protectors.

    We surrounded him, and \oh the magic that man knew! He could speak the language of Wisps! The spells he unleashed were beautifully destructive! Fire rained like hail, lightning smote the room and the carnage was so great, that undoubtedly carrion birds will feast upon it for days.

    Our spells, and swords smote his body. Yet still he carried on, felling many of out group. It was in the final moments of battle, that Melissa herself raised a dagger high above her head, and smote Clainin to the ground! His blood flowed freely as the light left his once intelligent eyes.

    As Clainin died…a light flashed about the room, and as it faded we heard Melissa yell out, “FLEE FROM HERE!” We ran.

    The Council of Mages, and True Brittanians rushed in and attacked us. Those that could, recalled. Those that couldn’t, fought. And fought we did!

    I bolted from the room, calling my armor clad horse to my side as I stuffed a book taken from Clainins body into my pack.

    Firing a bolt of energy and a pillar of flame at a running Mage, I recalled away, to fight another day…

    Clainin, the false mage of the Royal Council…is dead! What a wonderful day…

    Death to the shadowlords! Britannia must be cleansed!

    (Though I don't think the actions of us, Shadowlord or otherwise, really had any effect on the outcome of this event. The SL would have killed him regardless. EM's please give us some progression, instead of stalling us with filler.)

    FYI:
    We joined SL... infiltrated the meeting, got the location of Clainin and then turned on the SL faction players...

    Killing a few but not enough to prevent our total party destruction.

    Then we secured the healers and killed them and everyone else... until we got all destroyed... again.

    We ressed up and killed them all again... and went home... before the battle would turn on us...

    Irony of it all... Va'lis got the book.

    (ooc: Va'lis you are EVIL!)

    It's a faction clanin spellbook that is slightly better than the ones you can get from turning in silver.

    ...has anyone offered a bid on one of those spellbooks?

    Surely someone would at least entertain an offer?

    Hmmmm. Your reply would indicate that you would at least consider an offer though? Or please, just tell us. You dead-set on not giving it up?
