    FIRE & ICE
    (better late than never)

    The Following is a transcript of the Fire and Ice event.

    Casca: Hail mighty defenders! That you should be gathered with me on this glorious day!
    *straightens himself, planting his staff to the ground*
    *looks around to those gathered, raising his voice*
    Casca: It is said that fortune smiles upon the brave and shines upon the wise!
    Casca: And in this we are twice blessed.
    Casca: Our own Lord Clainin is safe, through both your efforts and my own!
    Casca: And now we have the key we have sought!
    *looks at Aino then back to the crowd*
    Casca: Gather to me soliders of the throne and here!
    Casca: We have the key to end this war!
    Casca: Our efforts have come to this, and there is no time to waste.
    Casca: Our enemy bares his neck to us!
    Casca: He has shown a moment of vulneribilty, that we must take advantage of!
    *Pauses to recover himself*
    Casca: Even now they gather in defense, cowering in their dark cave!
    Casca: The one we will invade! The one you will destroy!
    Casca: Captain Aino will send us there!
    *Aino nods*
    Casca: Send us to our destiny!
    Casca: Our spells recited and our blades sharpened!

    *Casca looks to Aino and nods his head* Aino Nystad: As you wish, sire. *casts a spell*


    Casca: To battle!
    [​IMG] As the defenders reach the cave
    Casca: Go forth!

    As the defenders gather in the crystal cave.

    Csaca: and it is fitting we should wait for them
    Kemer: *eyes Casca bitterly*
    Casca: Make room around the crystal.


    Kemer: Please stand away… I don’t want any of you to be hurt.
    Kemer: Please step back, this thing is dangerous.

    Casca: Dispel the vortexes!

    Aino: Lord Casca all but a few are here now.

    Casca: This crystal… Their center of power…


    Aino: *studies the blood sigil*
    Casca: *looks around at the crowd*
    Casca: Here now at last!
    Casca: the power to end this war is within our grasp!
    Casca: *places his hand on the crystal, closing his eyes*
    Aino: Is that wise?
    Casca: *whispers inaudibly*
    Aino: Please m’lord be careful.
    Casca: Now!
    Casca: *opens his eyes, a white light flooding from them*
    Casca: Begone!


    *blinks his eyes, looking around* *smiles, catching his breath**raises his staff*
    Casca: It is done! The darkness has washed away!
    Casca: Let us return to Yew where this began.

    Captain Aino opens a gate as the warriors return to where they where rallied.
    After taking a while to settle down the crowd, Casca began to speak again. His voice was overwhelmed a bit with many of the citizens calling him a coward.


    Casca: Unbreakable warriors!
    Casca: Here now the war has ended!
    Casca: Your King has shattered the anchor of our enemy on this world.
    Casca: and his subjects carved the bloody path!
    Casca: The Crimson Dragons are no more! Cast down!
    Casca: No longer will our cities choke on the evil that was once thick in the air!
    Casca: Our families and friends can sleep peacefully.
    Casca: And our armies, while always vigilant, can now rest in ease.
    Casca: Celebrate tonight friends, for you have deserved it.

    From the south a Great Crimson Dragon came forth to confront Casca. Many prepared for another fight, drawing swords casting spells. Some greeted the Dragon Syrak. But Syrak seemed to have little interest in fighting or being greeted.

    Syrak: Who amongst you can claim the power to banish me?
    Kemer: Casca?!
    Syrak: *Laughs*
    Kemer: *looks dismayed*
    Kemer: C-casca! He left me!
    (Citizens look around and Casca is no where to be found.)
    Syrak: Your pathetic magic has no effect on me!
    Syrak: Where is your king now?

    It was at that point many spoke against Casca, calling him a coward, a false king, and that he was a selfish man that only planned this for himself.

    *Syrak laughs*
    Syrak: Who is your true king then?

    Kemer bravely offered himself to the dragon.
    Kemer: Dragon if you have to eat someone, eat me.

    Suddenly a lady appeared and began speaking to the citizens.
    Fayaxion: Citizens! If you value your lives, leave now!


    Syrak: YOU! What are you doing here?
    Syrak: SPEAK TO ME!!
    Fayaxion turns to Syrak.
    Fayaxion: Do not make me laugh.
    Syrak: How dare you ignore me?
    Fayaxion: There is no reason I should pay you any kind of heed, young cousin!


    Syrak: Your race holds no power on me!
    Torrents of electricity gather around Kayaxion’s hands, her eyes glow a deathly white.


    Syrak: This world is ours!
    Suddenly Fayaxion’s form changes to that of a platinum dragon.
    Fayaxion: Wilful but foolish Crimson, it is for you to leave.
    Fayaxion: Mortals!
    Syrak: Impossible!
    Fayazion: This is your last warning, leave quickly!
    Fayaxion: Your kind is gone!
    Syrak: Do you really want to fight me and risk the lives of these people?


    Fayaxion: Your power is overshadowed! You think yourself more powerful than I?
    Fayaxion: I who watched you scream into this world?
    Syrak: We will have to wait for the when we can test that.
    Fayaxion: Indeed.
    Syrak: I am done here!
    As he suddenly disappears.
    Fayaxion: We will hear from him soon.
    Fayaxion: Well done today, mortals. Your victory was well deserved.


    Fayaxion: Do not ease your vigilance, things are not quiet over.


    And with that she vanished.

    With that the citizens were left to contemplate amongst themselves as to what may happen and a general consensus remained that Casca was indeed a false king and a cowardly one at that.

    Into personal mode here: There maybe parts left out due to various language and/or spam and otherwise noted problems. I believe I got the most of the general gist though. If anyone has anything to add please feel free to do so.

    I really like the artwork of those dragons. The horns are just neato! And one of these days I'll be able to attend an event, hehe. The news reports are great for catching up on what I missed though! Thank you Ori (and all the other reporters as well for that matter), I appreciate getting to read em. :)

    I was just keeping my eyes on the news, if she was doing the same then we were just well timed. Aren't many people I stalk in game. Actually none that come to mind. Perhaps that should be my next endeavor.

    Might I take this moment to apologize to everyone for the lateness of my stories. That other realm has been making this most difficult. But I will hopefully have it beaten into submission soon!!
