    Avery called us all to the counselors hall.
    It must been something very serious cause he asked us to come armed.​


    A large crowd of people where waiting at the counselors hall when Avery arrived and told us to come with him to the castles throne room.
    It was time to take back what belong to the people of Sosaria.
    Maginica was overrun by blackrock golems for weeks and it was time to make a end to the invasion.
    But i doubt Virtuebane and his minions would give it up that easily.​


    Virtuebane had more tricks up his sleeves.
    It seemed that he replicated himself with parts of the shard of duplicity.
    One Virtuebane was more then enough but now there seemed several more of him.
    We had to defeat these replica's and take back the shard fragments.
    But then Avery asked us something very strange.
    He asked if we already got a pie.​

    I did notice someone at the bridge of the castle giving away pies.​



    A humble pie?
    What had this pie to do with the fight against Virtuebane?
    But then i realize that Magincia was the city of Humility.
    We where ready!
    Fully armed to the teeth, with weapons,pets, spells and.... pie!
    Avery opened a gate to Magincia where all hell broke loose.
    We where surrounded by the replicas of Virtuebane and several Blackrock golems. ​


    This was a hard fight and several of our defenders fell in battle.​

    Things turned even worse when several ethereal Avengers appeared.
    They ignored me but they charged the people who have bad karma to the use of Necromancy and other dark magic.​


    Slowly we started to get a bit of a upper hand.
    Taking some replica's down.
    We would not give up even when they threat us to burn us.​


    Things could not get worse..... well.... maybe it could!​


    One of the Virtuebane moved different then the others.
    He was not talking like the others.
    This could be only one thing!
    This was the real Virtuebane!​


    I went after him.
    I wanted to kill him personally!
    I saw how he killed Queen Dawn and i saw how he ruined her funeral!
    I had enough of this daemon!
    The Virtues will protect us all and i will fight for them in the name of Dawn!​


    This old man will not retreat from this fight.
    I will fight with Valor.
    And i would Sacrifice myself if it would help to defeat this daemon.
    When i was fighting Virtuebane several people started to throw the humble pies at him.
    He got more angry because of it.
    It seemed that the pies hurted him more then the weapons we used and the spells we casted.
    I told everyone to keep throwing the pies at him!
    Virtuebane kept running around like a chicken.​

    Soon enough all of his duplicates where killed and the shards taken from there corpses.
    All the blackrock golems where defeated.​

    Now it was Virtuebane against us!​


    Whatever we tried he did not seem to die!
    But he kept fleeing from the pies the people trow at him.
    Then he fled and claimed we won the battle but not the war.​


    Magincia was liberated from the evil forces of Virtuebane.
    Well... whats left of Magincia.
    Avery came back and asked for the crystal shards.
    With them he could destroy the altar!
    And so it happened, with a huge explosion the altar was gone!​


    Avery thanked everyone to fight side by side with him to free Magincia.
    Maybe now Magincia can be rebuild.
    Let it rise like a phoenix from his ash!​

    Avery took us to a place to reward all the hero's that helped to free magincia.​




    The gauntlets seems to be a part of a set.
    Maybe in the future we can get the other parts.​

    And for Virtuebane....I think we will see him again.
    But i hope he knows that the people of Sosaria are not going to give up there freedom for him.
    My message to him... We will be ready!​

    Nice report (as always, true!) and it was fun to drive this big green chicken aka best-runner-in-town-Virtuebane off the shard... at least that's what I'm thinking, must have been my old "Mesanna's Pie" - he wasn't responding too well to it. Bwahahaha! *evilgrin*

    But in case he'll ever return, he should watch out... we may be a small community, but we're not helpless!
