    People of Britannia:
    For too long have we ruled under people who have appointed themselves higher then ourselves. Kings, Queens, Royal Councils, they are all words for the same thing: Tyranny. Our Governor's are but puppets to give you the citizens a false feeling of having your voice heard. In reality, a man we did not choose sits on a throne with a crown.

    I, Governor Of Britain Solus, hereby declare Britain has seceded from the "Nation" of Britannia, and hereby declares war on the King Of Britannia and any who associate with the tyrant on the throne.

    Friends, please be clear that this is not a spur of the moment declaration. Britain has spent a long time gathering funds, hiring mercenaries, and enforcing enlistment in our "City Guard". We have the forces to fully wage war. Britain's Naval Aramda has already been sent to each city and have begun bombardment of the shores of all cities still allied with the crown.

    Our future as men and women lies with one person: our new King Solus. A King chosen by the people of Britain, to lead itself and everyone in our world to a new life of freedom.

    Today, Britain publicly executed a Kingsguard:

    His neck was sliced like butter, and his head thrown to the ground. All who support the crown will meet the same fate.

    A house containing diplomats from Trinsic and Yew:

    By order of Britain's King Solus, the bridge to the Tyrant's Castle is burned:

    The heads of supporters of the Tyrant displayed for all to see:

    We currently have ships bombarding the coasts of all crown associated cities with cannons. During one such attack on Trinsic, we took some citizens fighting back as prisoners. Here is what happens to those who oppose freedom:

    In what way does Trinsic oppose freedom Solus? yes, it is a city under the rule of the king, but that does not mean Trinsic is responsible for all his decisions you disagree with....you don't really expect to win a war against every other city in Britannia do you? all that will come of this is death of your citizens and ultimately the destruction of your city.

    The black bird cawed and hopped about. Sojiro picked it up and removed the small note banded to one leg. Taking the note to Piram, he said " News milord Agrivar."

    Piram unraveled the note and read the contents. Frowning at the implications the note posed, he thought "The governor, milord Quackenbush, and master Joseph should be made aware. If they know already, then they are probably making plans.

    Getting inks and parchment, he penned 3 identical notes to those he has come to trust. Giving the small notes to Shoji, he sat back down to ponder what would transpire next.

    Laying on the table was the first draft of what he sent...

    This note goes to those I trust most in these lands. Troubling news has arrived that turmoil is on the horizon. Truths, allies, and bonds will be tested... some broken. I am still new to these lands and do not know of the actions causing Britain to make such moves, but I trust in you three to provide us with guidance. We former knights, and I now part of Vesper's guard, pledge ourselves to whatever you may need from us and what may lie ahead. War may be at hand, and strength will be needed to see it through. Strength of the body... strength of the heart...
    It was signed " Piram Agrivar, knight and citizen of Vesper."

    Looking to Phaedrin he says, " Fire the forge Phae, we are going to be needing steel... probably a mountain."

    The description of insanity is continually doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
    What makes you think we would trade one feudal system for another?

    Solus I love you, but you need to turn yourself in. The Crux Knights will meet you at the Kings Council meeting and escort you to a nice padded cell.
    We will let you bring your special Rare items and even let you keep your bank funds.

    The plan had come to fruition. Solus cracked a wry smile as he watched his men setup the last of the explosives around the city of Britain. Everything had come together almost perfectly. His men fought a battle they were meant to lose, their deaths used a mere distractions. Each city turned to their defenses, their attentions turned away from what was really happening. "Set them off" Solus ordered as his men lit the fuse that run throughout the city. Within moments explosions rocked the city of Britain, everything becoming engulfed in flames and destruction. Solus began walking off as his men followed, with one soldier stopping to question their new king, his voice quivering "What now sir?". Solus stopped and smiled as he answered "Nothing, the city of Britain and all of you are no longer needed. *Sanctum Viatas*" With that, the soldiers were left alone, to be engulfed in the fires.


    He had not been able to obtain all of them, but the thirteen ouroboros rings he had would do the job. Using their power, he hoped to open a portal to another timeline, one in which Exodus had not been defeated.

    [​IMG]

    A rift in time exploded in front of Solus, energy lashing out against the landscape. He looked in awe into it, his plan had worked and now he could usher in Exodus back into our world. His mind flashed, it felt as if his mind was being melded with another. The sense of similarity rushed through his body, but he did not understand what it meant. It was if he was now sharing existence with another....

    Solus stood infront of the rift in time "Come my lord, claim this world!". The rift shimmered as something started coming forth. Suddenly, pain shot through Solus' body. He looked down to see a sword piercing his gut, the blood flowing out. He looked up to see himself standing before him, clutching the hilt of the sword. "I...dont understand" Solus sputtered as he fell to his knees. The rift closed behind them, and the man who came forth spoke "You mad fool...The darkness that embraces my world is a thing of nightmares, and you try welcoming it into yours as well? We are the same person, our minds became one as you opened the rift into my reality. You were tainted by Exodus' corruption, a fate we do not share." He thrust his sword deeper, putting an end to his alternate selfs life.

    The memories came rushing in as he tried to compose himself. In essence, they were the same person, merely from different timelines. In his, Exodus won his war, killing Blackthorn and enshrouding the world in darkness. The memories of his counterpart became ingrained into his mind when he entered this new world. He saw a man who lost his mind to the corruption, a sad hopeless version of himself. He shook his head as he looked down upon his other selfs body.

    Solus' tyranny was over, freedom for what is left of Britain has finally arrived. The new Solus, or atleast the "other" Solus knew if he was to stay in this world he would have alot of explaining to do. He made his plans to address the leaders at their next council meeting.

    Shoji rushed in, puffing out of breath... gathering himself he blurted, "Britain is in flames!" Piram was shocked but a second... looking at the men now gathered around him he commanded, "grab what you can carry, we ride for the ruin of Britain. There will be those in need."...

    She wiped the smudges off the girls face.
    " There, there now...all is well. The fires are out. The lads will keep watch for any embers that were missed. "

    "M'lady...."
    "Maribel what is it?"
    " Martin the Blacksmith has had the others help take the bodies to the cemetary. We will have a service later. Yolanda of the Jewelers will take care of the arrangements. "

    "Thank you. The others are all meeting at the Cat's Lair. Owen has opened the bar. Will you let them know? "

    Smoke hung over the town as darkness began to fall.
    As she made her way past scorched buildings merchant's bobbed a greeting..." Your grace.., M'lady..,Duchess ...."

    Standing upon Poor Man's gate she glared towards the castle...
    " Solus. You have a lot to answer for here sir. "

    A black bird flew into the second floor window of the Vesper Intelligence Headquarters. Frostmore took the small note tied to its leg. It's seal bared the markings of Piram Agrivar. As he read the message his face became dire. "Dark wings dark words. My gods....." He grabs his radiant scimitar and his order shield and leaves in haste, hoping against hope.

    Flutter heres a kleenex-you are smearing your face powder! The answers right in front of us...... The Ouroboros Rings!
    When the uh fake Solus arrives at the Kings meeting he wont get to far without being put into custody.
    The Royal seers need to be summoned, I am sure they can capture Solus' thoughts and figure a way to to turn this back to when the real Solus was put under the Exodus spell.
    I have read correspondence that the King is fully aware of these past weeks circumstances and will be prepared, of this I am certain

    Thats a very good question.
    I am putting my faith in the hands of the Ouroboros rings and who ever has the power to search Solus' mind for the answers (if they dont keel over from complete hysteria themselves)
