As so many have missed all or part of the Europa events I have written a very rough catch up. I will probably miss bits and get some out of order for which I apologise and hope others will fill in and correct. I will also include some things from the main event story line too as the Ems have nicely linked them into there events. (setting) After the Royal Council was murdered and we rescued Casca and Captain Avery, Casca had Avery whisked away to a prison somewhere accused of being involved with the Council Murders. Casca the declared himself King pro-tempo. (Ems involved from here) Nathan Hawke went round asking about his childhood friend Jordan Jurrel and was updated on how things went for Jordan. He decided to stay at Jordan’s old office in Minoc whilst he caught up and made some notes. Casca promises to Rayne using the Virtues in 3 repeat speeches, after each he organises a hunt. During each hunt they are attacked by blue demons and notes are found regarding the search for Sherry the mouse and the need to kill her. Each time Sherry was meet and warned that her location had been discovered. Sherry was surprised at Casca’s enthronement and warned everyone to watch Casca closely and when the time was right there was Lords and Ladies that could lead. Casca called everyone to Castle British and named Nathan Hawke his new temporary Captain of the Royal Guard. Nathan explains how he had become a spy for the old council and had been away for some time. Nathan leads everyone on a mission to clear towns from the Crimson Dragon threat. Which went well even though its was a short lived victory as they soon returned. But despite this Casca declared a ball to celebrate. The ball was a disaster with everyone under attack from the crimson invasion force and to top it off a girl named Hannah was being harassed by what turned out to be her father the evil mage Mericle’s. He mentioned his plans to become immortal and his displeasure of Hannah mixing with mortals that were all doomed as she was to join him in his future planned Undead state. He then cast a gate and pushed Hannah into before following her. Thankfully in his mad drivel some were able to discern that he was going to the Undead citadel in Ishena and everyone went there to discover Hannah in chains. After getting the 3 keys to unlock the chains from Mericle’s minion, strange blue demons, Hannah was free and was taken to Jordan Jurrels office in Minoc to rest. Evidence that possibly linked Casca to the Council murders was privately given to Nathan Hawke and it was decided that until they had conclusive evidence not to disclose it. It was soon discovered that Mericle’s had sent Hannah’s love Dorian into the Void to get rid of this rival for his daughters affection. It was also discovered Mericle’s had a communication device to communicate with some allies he had in the Void. So after some trips into Ishena finding his diaries the 3 crystals making up the communication device were retrieved by Hannah (Mericle’s had used a spell to protect them, thankfully Hannah used a counter spell to pick them up). More trips into Ishena and the device was powered up and ready to use. Hannah was taken to an Island to use the device and communication was made with Dorian, it was obvious to all that Dorian needed to be rescued and fast. Using the crystals had however made Hannah very week and using them again would be a last resort. A false gate was made in Magincia to the Void to get Mericle’s attention and he fell into the trap. Once captured he agreed to make a gate into the Void as everyone told him Hannah had used the Magincia gate and gone into the Void after Dorian. So taking Mericle’s to an island he summoned Nosfentor the Shadow Lord and she made a gate for him, declaring he would have a heavy price to pay for it. No sooner had the gate been opened then a Void changeling (Mericle’s allies) jumped through it. During the battle both Nosfentor and Mericle’s made there escape. The Void Changeling was defeated ands everyone went through to the void to rescue Dorian. (this was in the Void shadow room in Ishena). After securing the room Dorian, now a very old man was lead away to Trinsic healers. Hannah was informed of Dorian’s aged condition brought on by his short time in the Void and was taken to him. After a very emotional proposal from Dorian they wee married there and then by another patient Gwen. Dorian died almost immediately after they were married. Dorian’s funeral took place in the threaten opposite Jordan’s office in Minoc and his body was placed on a boat that was set sailing aflame. Casca calls everyone together and along with Nathan leads everyone to a blood crystal where he tells it to stop, soon after it explodes and he hastens a retreat telling everyone to meet him outside. Soon after with Casca going on about how he had defeated the Crimson Dragon invasion a Crimson Dragon appears to taunt them all. Casca ran away and only after a platinum dragon appeared did te Crimson Dragon vanish, soon followed by the platinum dragon. Seed pods were discovered and also that Orcs were collecting them. The seem to be appearing at moongates , even one where Nosfentor had made the gate into the Void. Only orcs could pick them up too. One seed pods Nathan had infected by using mushrooms to see what would happen and after leavening a note conveniently dropped near an orc camp of its where abouts they came and collected it. Soon after the orcs became ill at the orc fort where the infected seed pod was and they started to die. Most of the seed pods were taken to the orc mine where an aluminous dark potion was being made and applied to them. It was also discovered the orcs wee acting on the bidding of the Mericle’s there big boss. A secret room was discovered within the mine but sadly no Mericle’s. There are plans to blow up the entrance to the cave to delay the threat. Casca was given some of the potion to have analyzed as a test by the Royal alchemist. He was also given a test as to how he would handle the trouble in the North (republic) areas of Britannia. Failing ion both counts, after talking to the alchemist it was discovered Casca had swapped the potion for a harmless mixture to protect Mericle’s and what was going on with the seed pods. Also his declaration of a census and a thousand gold to be paid by everyone, along with a so called peace keeping mercenary/bandits being posted close to Vesper provoking war showed him as the usurper he is. Casca then sacks Nathan and soon after has him kidnapped and imprisoned in the volcano in Ishena, guarded by the ancient Wyrm. Everyone got together and with Hannah’s aid Nathan was rescued. After a meeting of town leaders it was decided that a united force of Sosarian are to march on Britain to take it back and a new Royal Council was to be elected. If possible Casca is to be taken prisoner.
