    Machines of Discord: The Ascension of Lord Blackthorn
    WarderDragon and Emma Silvermane

    Three nights have passed since the illustrious Lord Blackthorn was named King of Britannia.

    Widely remembered as the corrupt and Machiavellian schemer who brought open war against the Order Guard, suggested the lives of Orcs might be more important than those of his fellow man, and demanded the throne for himself upon his liege's departure, Blackthorn seems to have turned over a new leaf. Having spent the past decade in a magically-induced coma, free to be probed and prodded (and programmed) by the daemon-machine Exodus, he suddenly appears out of no-where, helping to cure a "mysterious plague" that also appears out of no-where about the same time.

    Discovered by Dupre in the midst of his work, Blackthorn proclaimed his innocence. He was really a good little boy this whole time, and it was all the fault of his evil twin.

    If healing a few Gargoyle's is all it takes to be King, someone should give Casca a medal.

    What's Dupre to do? He proclaims Blackthorn King, without so much as consulting the High Council, because we all know Lord British's favorite emotional alcoholic would think these things through. He's the Bones to Cantabrigian's Jim. (OOC: I can use Star Trek references IC. Moongates, people. Moongates!) But hey, at least we all got a free chair out of the deal.

    ...right before the red ******* revealed his Cartel tags and slaughtered us all. No, seriously.

    Oh, and did I mention he repaired that broken moongate no one uses? Awesome, huh?

    Not to blow our own horn (...that would require more flexibility than I currently possess), but we have one of the most unique shards out there. Not sure who started the whole robe and torch thing, but you're awesome.

    Blackthorn was the only noble of high enough station to wear the crown, and apparently peasants are unqualified.

    Awkward.

    Gilly asked in General Chat if this was to be a formal wear occasion and from that point on it became a typical Baja event where those who are around engaged, and built upon what was last said until it ends up being something very special, very Baja.

    Gilly and I were the enablers in that we supplied the robes and torches. They were mostly left on the ground outside the bridge, a few were handed out but from that point it was up to each and every individual what they wanted to do with it, if anything.

    Aleecia, JINX and other people lined the Royal Walkway with torches, some laid out food and anniversary cakes and gifts. There were no political statements involved as far as we were concerned.

    The general chat discussions were basically that we just wanted to do something fun and a little different from what you normally see. We are Baja after all.

    Anyone want to play odds on how long this one lasts?
