    Re: [NEWS] War!

    We gathered at Castle British at the appointed time and heard the words of Xavier Bradddock. In the past months our towns have been plagued by the invasion of sinister armies, striking and leaving quickly. Behind all this has been Virtuebane, and his intent was control of the lands of Sosaria. His means of control, other than the citizens' fear of his dark forces, was the Crystal of Duplicity with which he could create endless copies of his powerful form. However, strong as he was, there was a weakness he could not overcome, which was explained by Braddock:

    "Even tho the Ricardo you saw on the way here to the castle my seem mad and insane, he has a good plan even tho it may seem..... different. Legends have been told of how the Virtuebane have been defeated before. Simple peasants throwing rubbish, garbage, even dung in the face of such evil. Humiliating the Virtuebane to the point he had no choice but to flee."

    So, with dragons in tow and pies in hand, we headed to the seat of Humility, the island of Magencia. What greeted us there was a herd of Virtuebane duplicates along with their pets, Ancient Hellhounds. The battle that followed was long and deadly, with much lamenting about the number of deathrobes cluttering backpacks. A saving grace amidst all the horror was the appearance of the meer eternals and ethereal warriors fighting alongside us and rezzing us when needed.

    At last the real Virtuebane was identified and efforts concentrated on bringing him down. His might and healing powers proved too strong for our efforts and we did little damage with weapons and beasts. Braddock sang out "Throw your pies!" and at once the mighty horror began to howl. The pies worked! "Herd him toward the black gate!" Braddock cried. Virtuebane, cowering in the flight of pies being hurled at him, retreated in the direction of the black altar and gate and finally lost hope of recovering his dignity and vanished, but not before screaming "You've not seen the last of me!".

    Many of us had collected tiny pieces of the shattered Crystal of Duplicity which Braddock then asked be put into a container sitting there at the altar. Once they had been gathered a spell was cast and the dark gate destroyed that Virtuebane would be locked in whatever foul place he had gone into.

    "Our work is not yet finished" said Braddock, "Follow me!" and he dashed off to the southern end of the island. Burned grasses formed a codex of sorts on which Braddock placed the small box containing the crystal shards and we watched as the box sunk into the earth. "There seem to be instructions attached to this sign" said Braddock. "Yes, they are coordinates!"

    [​IMG]

    Xavier Braddock studied the coordinates and opened a gate and the weary fighters went thru it to find themselves in a lovely, peaceful hollow hidden in the rocky crags surrounding the valley of Ilshenar. In the hollow was a lone statue which granted the victors shining gold gauntlets.

    A battle well fought, people of Legends!
