    It had been almost exactly eight months since Bennu first stepped foot on the soil of a new land. A familiar but at the same time, a strange place wrought with insanities beyond measure.

    As an ascended being Bennu had been charged by the great ones with Inspiration, and inspire is what he had aimed to do. He had inspired Lady Amandine to charge headlong into the glorious resurgence of the Knights of the Crux Ansata. He had inspired Lord Havel in his archaeological pursuits, and most importantly he had used his powers to release a young Magincian boy from temporal limbo, causing quite a stir when the Time Lord came to answer the challenge.

    The people seemed to enjoy the inspiration he had provided for these past months, and yet behind all of this there was a dark side few knew of.

    Bennu had also inspired the wicked Bellatrix Adhara to betray her sister and massacre hundreds. He had guided countless armies in their march across Britannia against its citizens. His actions had destroyed the lives of hundreds. Fortunes had been lost and gained. He had even plucked a star from the sky and hurled it into the Mountains of Avarice. He told himself it was to inspire. He told himself it was to breed Courage, Love and Truth among the populace…

    “Surely heroes will step forward to thwart this challenge…” Bennu thought.

    …and they always did. However the strain had weakened him. Some enjoyed the darker inspiration he had provided and in this darkness his spirit started to waver. Some part of him reveled in the chaos, the blood and the death of the killing fields.

    A sickness had entered his form and maybe he enjoyed killing a little too much, maybe the forest of decrepit trees that sprouted forth from Bellatrix’s footsteps had taken root in his soul. Maybe it was finally time to end it…

    The sickness had taken hold of his heart-soul and wrestled with him, his sadness was overwhelming and the decision had to be made.

    How could he tell them?

    Bennu took the shadow of thought from his mind and laid it to rest at the door of the EM Hall in Britain, it read as follows:


    "My Friends, Tonight at 9pm by the eastern sun I ask that you join me in Britain at the standard place of our meetings... I would like to talk to you."

    ...And that was the end of it.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    I am glad people seemed to enjoy themselves last night, I wasn't expecting the crowd size we got. We had between 150 and 200 people attend at the high point, it was rather amazing.

    I hope a bit of fiction managed to get through all the fighting.

    Here is Bennu with all his 'friends'...

    So many Bennus! A couple of you were really awful - you killed me repeatedly! =p Even when I thought I was far enough away to be safe, jeez, there you were again. I'd try to slip by or sneak around the back, but there was no getting by you ... or you ... or you!

    The names were great. =) Would you list them here, please? I would enjoy reading over them.

    love it!

    I think it was your angst and shenanigans who contributed greatly to my death robe collection. Thanks for that. :p

    I really wanted to kill your pretensions! ...but your shenanigans kept me from it.

    Keep up the good work!

    lol Marie, you're always sweeter than any human could expect.

    You can't expect to come in a thread and read such nice humor at all these days !

    :heart:

    Why are you grumpy Bennu ?

    I think I managed a little dent in your err... as a returning to britannia nooblet that made me feel a sense of accomplishment !

    Oh and all the people I clumsily healed ; the funny part about that is that I probably wasted more ghosts time than anything by not being able to res, and probably gave lots of false hopes to many people that would have loved their poison cured...

    hope there's no rancor on the corner :thumbup1:
