A precious few nights ago the Royal Britannian Guard made for Ter Mur's Royal City hot on tips in reference to a Cult of the Promise and on the tail of the fiends An Ort-Lem and Nicholai!! The Crowd was on edge, expecting trouble! Queen Zhah's mood was almost undoubtedly a response to her own people's lack of control! She delivered the following dialogue. [graciously provided by EM Eris.] After tromping about the sands for some time some of us were promptly pulled into a sparkling tornado and punched square in the head. Adding another odd foe to the growing list of things that have tried to kill the Royal Britannian Guard! One we were all done dieing and screaming we noted Nicholai standing on a large tower with a vaguely familiar gem! And by vaguely I mean it was the Fire Ruby in an unstable state, being guarded by curious gargish barriers, more than certainly placed by An Ort-Lem! That Winged Rogue! With covetous eyes Nicholai did speak to us. [Ditto] After pushing past us Nicholai took hold of the the gem, leaving behind only an illusionist's clone of the gem before disappearing with a dramatic "Kal Ort Por" Post collecting the wounded the RBG was left to wander, what would Nicholai and his Cult of the Promise's next move be?
