01/07/11 - A Dream *As you sleep you dream of a strange looking Sphynx walking peacefully along a sandy path between cliffs. As the dream begins to fade you hear a voice, 'I have a task for you. Meet me at Tram Delucia stables.* As citizens began to gather, the Shade of Moria appeared to them. She told them she was bound in this state, unable to move on until she atoned for her actions. She was there for another reason as well. The Blood Queen appeared. Apparently it was her that sent the dream, not Moria. Well, well, well. I'm glad to see so many of you here... Maybe one of you might be capable of doing this simple task. Although I have my doubts. Accomplish this task and you'll be rewarded, Fail and you'll die a painful death. I have heard that Mary had a pet Sphynx... Of course it was only a normal one Out there somewhere *waves hand vaguely* is a Sphynx worthy of me and only me. Find that Sphynx and bring it to me. If you do, you'll be rewarded. If it don't, you die. Simple isn't it? Find the Sphynx, and bring it to me. Ta-ta! In short order the Sphynx was found. Instead of luring it to the Blood Queen, the citizens took Moria's advise and killed it. The Blood Queen wasn't happy. *shakes head* I suspected this task would be too difficult for you. *sigh* Now you must die. Ta-ta! As the Blood Queen vanished, Enslaved Warriors appeared. The fight was on and the Enslaved Warriors were winning. It took while, but the citizens rallied and fought back eventually destroying the Enslaved Warriors. Towards the end of the battle with the Enslved Warriors a few noticed the Shade of Moria leave the battle field. Those that followed her beheld an incredible sight... These steeds were definately Royal. It seemed they belonged to the Blood Queen who was anything but happy about them being found. "Those steeds belong to me!! You will NOT touch them!!!" Of course the Royal Steeds had to die. Of course the Royal Steeds had no intention of dying... In the end the Royal Steeds were killed breaking many a tamer's heart, enraging the Blood Queen, and made the Shade of Moria smile.
