The Royal Spies
Rumors had spread that the Royal Guard was in need of some Spies. What it got was by far not what I am sure the King was looking for this evening. I sent Theresa (THB) to check the security of this meeting.
Commander Cameron: Attention Royal Kings guard! Meeting in 20 minutes in Serpents Hold!
That the word we received this evening that started this very first hush hush meeting of the Royal Spies.
Commander Cameron: I have placed runes in Luna and At the West Britain bank that will teleport you to the meeting!
Commander Cameron: Meeting in 10 minutes in Serpents Hold!
You see: Commander Cameron
Purist: hail Commander Cameron!
Commander Cameron: Hail
Commander Cameron: *paces impatiently*
Purist: Looking stunning as always!
Commander Cameron: Thank you
Theresa: Hail commander
Commander Cameron: Greetings
Commander Cameron: Have you all made sure the rest of the Guard knows to come tonight?
Commander Cameron: *looks concerned*
Commander Cameron: Well, they have five minutes
Commander Cameron: Then we proceed without them
Commander Cameron: I have a lot on my mind tonight
Theresa: rumor has it something about Royal spies?
The Commander was very concern for a few minutes till more folks arrived.
Commander Cameron: This is good
Commander Cameron: Good good I like to see more guards heeding the call
Commander Cameron: Tonight is going to be something different
Commander Cameron: I will give those running late another minute
Commander Cameron: Alright
Commander Cameron: The King has called a regrouping of the royal spy commission
Commander Cameron: *shakes head looking concerned*
Commander Cameron: The royal spies will meet once a month
Anguis Domitor: regrouping sounds ominous
Theresa: I agree
Commander Cameron: We will be called upon as needed to gather intel for the Royal guard and the King
Commander Cameron: In the interim those who take on the call of the Royal guard will be expected to keep their ear to the ground and their eyes ever open.
Commander Cameron: As we are learning of new enemies of the state
Commander Cameron: your questions will be answered as time progresses
Commander Cameron: What we need now is a commitment from you the guard
Commander Cameron: This may not be for everyone
Commander Cameron: There will be much killing and you may have to do things that you find morally... questionable
Commander Cameron: For the greater good of course
Commander Cameron: It is dangerous
Commander Cameron: You will be the front line and the initial contact of those who wish to harm our world or our king
Commander Cameron: You will indeed need to heal and res each other more than our usual missions as there will be very few people with the knowledge of where we will be.
Commander Cameron: The locations and missions will be on a need to know basis. Many times healers will not be hired to join us
Commander Cameron: I will be your direct contact between you and the king
Commander Cameron: Tonight we will be headed to our meeting place
Commander Cameron: I have selected this location because of it's remote location and lack of spying eyes
Commander Cameron: There is a problem though
Commander Cameron: The building is... well haunted
And was it ever haunted and it still is as the Royal Guard did not completely clear the building of the undead. Many of the Guard was still inside fighting when there was a recall of the forces outside, all returning to the War room. Many of the Guard still in battle deep inside the Keep did not know of this for several minutes
.Commander Cameron: Which is why it is vacant and no one goes there
Commander Cameron: It will need to be cleared out
Commander Cameron: By us of course
Commander Cameron: It is a Keep deep in Ilshenar, and of late an ancient spirit named Akkarath has been uh, well presiding over the undead there. We will destroy him of course and his minions
Commander Cameron: I would say at least once a month you will see this brazier. When you see the brazier here in the Royal Guard meeting area you will know the Royal Spy Regimen has been called to duty.
Commander Cameron: There will be a secret word. That will teleport you to our hideout. It will change frequently. So that we can keep our secret unknown to others. Tonight we go clear out the keep.
Commander Cameron: To be teleported tonight what word shall we use?
Many others shouted out words as well, none were picked by the Commander.
Commander Cameron: Very well. The word tonight will be ghost. Speak it near the brazier to be teleported to our hideout. I will place it in the back of the room.
The Commander leaps from the stage, setting the brazier at the back of the room. Several rush forward to be the first to cross. Theresa stood and watch as many leap to follow till finally when she saw an opening around the brazier she spoke.
This was not the War room it was the woods of Ilshenar. All that happen after was lost to poor Theresa, a narrow passage through a mountain pass lead the force to a huge keep at the top of the mountain. Within this keep was an army of undead. Ney not a ghost buster mission this was a mission to stay alive now. Theresa was wishing her sister Kat had come on this mission. but she did the best she could with casting the EVs and healing others that had fallen in the battle outside this keep.
Akkarath: Begone! This is my home!
Akkarath: You have no permission to enter!
Akkarath: I call upon my undead horde!!
Oh No! So many fell during this battle. Theresa as well earned a few dead robes this evening.
Moxxi: do we have a purpose or just run around like chickens with our heads cut off??
(((you are supposed to be clearing out the building like Cameron said at the address)))
Theresa: Now the Maids are going to have a hard time with all this blood
Moxxi: never gonna happen with those shadow fiends
Kara: ya they nasty
Dreadnaught: is that a paragon tormented? oh come on
Moxxi: SCREW that shadow fiend!
Skeptamystic: thats just ridiculous lol
Whitefire KotR: this is an unholy place!
Theresa: you guys know we have to clear the upstairs as well
Fenn: Help! Come quickly!
Fenn: 'Tis a bloodbath!
Fenn: Protect me!
Fenn: 'Tis a bloodbath!
Commander Cameron: Well done everyone! Continue to make sure the building is clear!
This was the last order we saw as we went deep inside the Keep on the 2nd floor, there was no recall.
SIDEWINDER: Was there a drop? A question I could not answer as Theresa was still deep within the Keep with others on the 2nd floor trying to clear it.
Hulk Hogan: I got drop lol
Beastslayer: got a protector of the battle mage
Kara: banshee call here
Moxxi: thats a boss drop, not em drop
Tharion: banshee call as well
Drea de Matteo: Channeler's Defender
Dreadnaught: I got a slither
ConquistaDora: GLADIATORS SASH
Clym of Clough: just another low hit point boss that half didn't even see til dead, (Yep Clym you are right. Several folks were on the 2nd floor thinking we had to clear the building).
Tharion: always nice seeing Sonoma playing though. (I agree).
Now here is where it really gets lost. There was no recall order given, so several folks had not a clue that it was over. They were still deep within the Keep fighting the undead. So did we complete the mission? This one votes Ney. The keep is still haunted and the maid service needs work.
Back at Serpent's Hold War room.
EM Willow: The boss was just a regular event boss so it didn't have any mods or anything
Theresa: we still have people there
EM Willow: It was just a primeval lich
Clym of Clough: all Sonomans raise their hands that were at the event, heh
SIDEWINDER: ya i noticed
Joyce: is em event over
EM Willow: I thought you might enjoy something different from crimsons
SIDEWINDER: anyway it was fun
Beastslayer: i got drop protector of the battle mage =P
Theresa: I was there (Can I ask for a t-shirt)
SIDEWINDER: have a nice evening!
Tharion: and yes its over
Kara: Thank you
EM Willow: I make an effort to make sure you all have fun
Charly Dont Surf: first event Clym?
Venom: there was an event?
EM Willow: Goodnight
Beastslayer: Thank you
Clym of Clough: yes Joyce, while I was helping you kill the rotting corpse, everyone else killed the primevil lich
Thus ends this report
