    With the sun setting, Julian and Nestor shouldered their weapons as they pushed past some bushes and continued their patrol through the woods near Britain. For weeks on end they had watched these woods for any sign of the encroaching Void and its destructive manifestations or the crystals that preceded them, but to no avail. By now, both Royal Guard walked the same path by rote, confident that Britain had not yet come underneath the Shadow of the Void.

    That is, until a massive tentacle of blackened energy erupted from seemingly nowhere and struck without warning, smashing Nestor face first into a nearby tree trunk, killing him in a sickening and bloody instant of skull crushing gore.

    Julian froze in utter terror and surprise, watching his companion lifelessly drop to the dirt, the giant mass of monstrous flesh and appendage responsible for the act materializing above the corpse. The reek of its manifestation stank of the Void, ominous and corrupting, the beast sucking the very life out of the green nature that surrounded its arrival.

    Winning over his stone like limbs, Julian forced himself to turn away from the silent abomination, thinking only to warn the others. Two more beasts similar in form, already materialized, awaited his retreat, and Julian felt only a momentary spike of pain as a pair of tentacles thrust through his chest and belly, piercing his armor and flesh alike as if it were nothing, before the merciful nothingness of death had overtaken him.


    The Shadow of the Void looms over Britain and Void Crystals have formed in anticipation of the attack! Royal Investigator Miles Brinn has called an emergency meeting of the Guard to contest this threat!

    Event Date: Thursday April 15th, at 8pm CST
    Event Location: Castle British Throne Room, Trammel
