    Queen Dawn Murdered!


    The realm was summoned to the throne room in Castle Britannia last eve to heed the call of Queen Dawn herself. Those in attendance were informed of the possibility of a method to end the chaos that Virtuebane and his minions have unleashed in recent weeks. Describing the magical process of infusing the power of the crook of Humility and the very sword she called her own. adventurers then traveled via moongate to the Humility Shrine itself to complete the task. Little did we know what was to come.....

    The Queen went on with the ceremony binding the crook of Humility with her very own sword. Just as the process was complete, a familiar face soon appeared and startled the Queen and those in attendance.

    Ors, husband to the Queen Dawn appeared although not quite favoring his normal self. Giggling about with a wild eyed look he paced the shrines stone stage as Queen Dawn spoke to her true love.

    Dawn was very relieved to see her husband who had been missing for weeks had returned. Trying to reach him although he was obviously wracked in some odd trance of unknown origin. She assured him she would get him help find a healer do whatever it took to get her love back to normal.

    As we all stood helplessly as if in a daze ourselves the unthinkable would soon occur. As the two lovers embraced, the eerily wicked Ors slowly slipped a dagger from behind his back. Stabbing the Queen, Ors went wild repeatidly wounding Dawn as she fell unable to defend the attack.

    Pleased beyond comprehension with the devious deed he had just accomplished, Ors cackled loudly as the crowd in attendance groaned in disbelief. Proclaiming to all he had completed his task and summoned the would be puppetmaster himself to view the results.

    The vile one himself Virtuebane emerged delighted by the death of the Queen. Taunting the crowd he soon turned his attention to Ors as he exclaimed the two would soon rule the lands.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The puppet was soon released from his magical trance and realizing what he'd done Ors soon tragically saw the light of what had just transpired. Crushed beyond belief, Ors rambling all the way would flee in shame as the crowd in attendance vowed to hunt him down.

    Virtuebanes plan was complete. The foul creature sought to gain the infused sword. As Ors fled, he collected the dagger exclaiming he now held the power of the virtue of love stained in the dagger used on Queen Dawn as well as the long overlooked virtue of truth corrupting the books of truth spread amongst the lands. Gloating he combed the terrace seeking the sword. In the midst of the action, someone managed to sneak the blade to safety. Angrily realizing his plans were now delayed, Virtuebane unleashed holy hell summoning his minions in a fit of fury to retrieve the sword.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Incoming from all directions, Blackrock Golems lay waste to the crowd. Battling valiently the realms players stood firm against the tremendous foe. A lenghty battle would ensue.

    Arriving to lend a sword to the fray, Commander Drake Foxx led the charge as the final Golems were put down. The crowd soon gathered around the shrine once more as Queen Zhah of Tel Mur arrived hearing of the recent attack.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Zhah offered her sincerest condolences as she told the citizenship her laborers were already hard at work creating tokens of memorial for the Queen. Instructing those in attendance to visit the stonemason inside the Gargoyle city, there they'd receive a replica of the Queen's likeness for thier own.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Worried citizens pondered the realms future now that its monarch lay fallen. Foxx assured the group order would soon be restored as the Royal Guard would assume command until such time another option is found. The Commander gently collected the Queen's lifeless corpse to return it to Britain to prepare for burial.

    [​IMG]

    With Guardians infesting the cities of the realm, we can only hope the solution of the fallen Queen will lead us to the demise of our most villanous foe. The Royal Guard returned to Serpents Hold to plot the next move as the realm mourns this grievous loss. The rule of the fair and just Queen Dawn has ended this day but the resolve of Chesapeake shall carry on in her name. May the Virtues bestow us with the might to see this to its end.

    Mr. Lord Bane might not always justify the means to his ends... but, you know, revolutions are always bloody. Perhaps an attack at the head of the serpent is better in the long run. I am not sure.

    Today's actions have, for the first time, planted seeds of doubt that maybe I chose the wrong side in this conflict. Do we need our tight-gripped views on virtue? Perhaps we do. I am so full of confusion. I have fought so long for a new government... I should stand by my actions. Yes. I will continue the fight. Lord Bane will not let his faithful down... Not like Ors... No... Not like Ors.......

    *ponders the words of one who, once, would have joyfully served the great and noble Lord British... offers a quiet prayer for the misguided warrior's redemption*

    I'm guessing this was just for those who were there? What exactly is this item?

    So very well covered. I'm jealous. It seems your shards version was a tad more um... I fumble for words. Cooler? Than "ours".

    Wow, your shard got to SEE the gargoyle queen? How cool.
