    Saturday, January 23, 2010
    By EM Seppo

    Due to the efforts of Lady Sara [TAO] and Lady Proserpina, the encrypted message was decoded. It has revealed the plans of Purity League, but I fear just in nick of time. There is still much to be done, if we are to stop their evil design.

    The decrypted message follows (might be difficult to read as it was written in a hurried manner),

    Hail, brethrens of the purity league!

    We stand at the crux of time. A grand opportunity stares down at us, if we are able to unite to grasp it!

    The recent warrant issued against Aldagar Moor should leave us with no doubt that the so-called Queen of Britannia is willing to misuse the power of the throne to crush any opposition against the integration of the Gargish demons. The power wielded by our ideological enemies is great - Make no doubt about that. I am sure that some of you may have wondered who we are to fight the combined forces of royal guards and their allies.

    The answer to this lies in a very old Britannian myth. There exists an old folktale about a mythical castle in the lost lands. Many adventurers have gone searching for this castle in the sky, but none have ever found it. I have recently discovered the truth behind this tale with the aid of the scrolls that were looted from Lord Casca's treasure. One of these scrolls contained in them information of these scrolls about various mythical creatures of Britannia. One particular entry was of great interest to our cause,

    Orobas, the goat oracle

    Orobas is a strange creature depicting a cross between a horse, a goat, and a man. The truth of his existence is unknown but he is said to have the power to give true answers of what has been, what is, and what will be. He resides in a castle that is said to be protected by being out of sync with our reality, so that none may enter. However, every hundred years it phases into our reality somewhere in the lost lands. It is said that a particularly ambitious lich lord once managed to penetrate the castle when it phased into our reality. With Orobas under his control, the lich lord made the castle his center of power.

    Perhaps you are wondering why I am wasting your time with this trivia. Maybe I would garner your attention, if I informed you that Orobas' castle will phase into our reality this very weekend. Imagine, having a castle outside the reach of our enemies as our headquarters? Not to mention, a mythical oracle under our power. I have all the tools needed to subdue Orobas but I will require your help in case the ceremony is interrupted by Gargoyle appeasers. Meet me behind the stables in Minoc Felucca when the clock strikes four this coming Saturday. Bring along any new recruits that can be trusted.

    Since receiving the decrypted message, I have looked into the matter. I am afraid to say that their might be some truth behind this fantastic tale. It is best if some riders were sent out to scout Felucca T2A - we must know the location of this castle, if it exists.

    Thief Master



    Task for Pro-Gargish faction:

    Ride out to T2A Felucca to uncover the location of Orobas' fortress.

    Event notification

    Title: Capture the fortress

    When: Saturday, 4:30 PM PST (Pro-gargoyle )*,

    Saturday, 4:00 PM PST (Purity League)

    * Precondition: the location of the fortress must be found in Felucca T2A or purity league wins without a fight

    Keep an eye out for more information between now and then on the website.

    Well I walked around T2A Felucca for 7 hours, covered all of the Lost Lands (and they ain't that big) and no Orobas' Castle.

    I give up. Anyone else find it?

    "*Out of character update: There was a mix-up in the setup and the castle is on the wrong facet at the moment. So, if you have been looking for it in Felucca, I am sorry but it is in Trammel. Hopefully, we will have it fixed by event time* ... "

    You took the words right out of my mouth! *laughs hysterically* Well, I'd better get to looking in Trammel then. If nothing else, it sure has reacquainted me with T2A. :thumbup:
