Excited to share Lake Austin's special spots, several of us met her at the Britain EM Hall.
EM Topaz: hiya
EM Topaz: I'm excited to see the sights!
Restless: do I need to get my dragon out?
EM Topaz: No, but not all events require mayhem!!
Restless: I dunno about that
Tamais : thank heavens
Restless: my dragon eats at events
Restless: not eating, not an event
From there we gated to our festival grounds and the tour began. Several spots that were visited were the archery area, the maze, arena, and the gypsy camp.
EM Topaz: Lets head on to the reward hall and you can tell me about it
M Topaz: Maybe this will be our meeting place sometimes

EM Topaz: Whoever tells the scariest story wins
EM Topaz: Good plan

EM Topaz: Oh I love when people decorate like this
<12779495>Tamais : I saw her decorating this one
EM Topaz: Whos house is this
Laura Croft: one of mine
Tamais : I love it
EM Topaz: I like it very much
EM Topaz: Lets see
EM Topaz: Lets go to the Weld and you all can tell me about it
Weld Council(Dream Sequence)
EM Topaz: Oh my!
Tamais : this is the original weld council
Laura Croft: I want skins!!!!!!
<12779495>Tamais : down at the bottom is the only time you see Evidias as a weld
<12779495>Tamais : she is the blue one
<12779495>Tamais : the ones on the right were evil : while the ones on the left were good
<12779495>Tamais : the light green one, Marouk is now in human form also
Tamais : This area was done as a dream sequence. One of the evil ones came alive and killed us.
Weld Camp/Mongbat Village
EM Topaz: I also have a rune that says Weld camp
<12779495>Tamais : this was called the Mongbat village or Weld Camp
<12779495>Tamais : After the weld adapted and became friends, they moved here.
<12779495>Tamais : over here by the mongbats
<12779495>Tamais : are the blue welds that Thalia was telling you about
Tamais : the dark one was a gift from us to Augustus
Tamais : took Thalia almost 7mts to get it made
Tamais : then he had a drop of the blue weld for us
EM Topaz: Nice
<12779495>Tamais : All of the items you see are the different drops from the weld arcs
<24196410>Restless: some are
<12779495>Tamais : we even have the first spy master Merrick at the bottom
<12779495>Tamais : I know he has some of the drops over at the trophy halll
Tamais : that is Evidias
Tamais : she lost her memory and took human form
Tamais : she never went back
Tamais : Marouk also was a weld
Tamais : the leader of the weld was time without dreams
Tamais : Merrick is this way
Tamais : Merrick was the spy master before Dahlia. He sacrificed himself to save Dahlia.
<10414493>EM Topaz: Very nice bit of history here
<12779495>Tamais : Yep, a lot of history
<10414493>EM Topaz: I like it very much
<12779495>Tamais : an event area from one of the puzzles events
<12779495>Tamais : lol I thought every shard had this building
<10414493>EM Topaz: Don't they?
<26337376>Mylene: the building yes, contents no
Sir Mortagne: *eyes blaze* Greetings mortal.
Restless: Martel Nevarre
Sir Mortagne: There is much I can tell you about him. He is my brother, for one thing.
Sir Mortagne: He is my son. I have placed him at the head of my forces.
Sir Mortagne: A death cult who came here long ago by planar gate. They are all gone now.
Sir Mortagne: Luna shall be mine. Even now my forces besiege the city.
<26337376>Mylene: I forget the EM's name, but Martel and Mortaigne Navarre were brothers, and his characters. He would run separate events for the good and bad guys
Tamais : beginning of the league of chaos
Restless: so Mortagne still sits here
<26337376>Mylene: Pausha's shield in Stryder's was one of the things given to a number of my alliance in helping him
Tamais : the lanterns are still on the roof also
<26337376>Mylene: fun stuff - I never got anything, though
<12779495>Tamais : lol remember the race to be the first to join chaos
<12779495>Tamais : weren't there different items they had to find in the different dungeons?
<24196410>Restless: they had to find these lanterns I believe
EM Topaz: I wonder who owns this house now
EM Topaz: Is it safe from being idoc?
Tamais : it should be
Restless: says mortagne owns it
Restless: it's been here a very long time
Tamais : as it has been here for years
EM Topaz: Good hopefully its one of Mesanna's accounts keeping it up
<26337376>Mylene: we were at the epic part of the arc, Martel was dying, his sons slain or corrupted by Mortaigne
Mylene: and Luna under siege by an alliance of the inhabitants of Labyrinth and Khaldun
<26337376>Mylene: when EA cancelled all EM events and left us in the lurch
Restless: in the labyrinth, towards the end where Maraktus would spawn, is a chest.
Restless: inside the chest is a legion of chaos sash showing Mortagnes deal with the minotaurs
Mylene: the minotaurs returned, but we were stuck with ancient liches, rotting corpses and skeletal dragons
Mylene: outside Luna north gate for 5 years after
Tamais : and the gates are still locked
