    As told by Michael Wolf:
    Sunday, September 6

    I awoke this morning to find a note from an old friend Ghost Writer. He told me of a great battle he witnessed the previous night when the Crimson Dragons were defeated. He also told me Dawn would be gathering the citizens of Britannia tonight at the Counselors' Hall to mount an attack against the Shadowlords and push this evil out of Britannia once and for all.

    I arrived at the Counselors' Hall to find a large gathering of citizens all waiting for the arrival of Lady Dawn and Lady Raelyn McKie. Once they arrived, Dawn told us of how she planned to attack the Shadowlords in their own fortress. All present volunteered to help or die trying.


    We were met at the fortress by a band of Demons which we quickly dispatched while Lady Dawn opened a portal to the depths of the fortress itself.


    Once inside we were met by an onslaught of Shadowlord Manifestations ... The battle had begun! For what seems like hours we fought, many died and were healed and sent back into battle. We fought in groups, and when overwhelmed and dispersed, we regrouped with other and set up new defenses. The citizens fought bravely and tirelessly against the constant onslaught of the Shadowlords and their minions.



    Eventually we found ourselves all together in on large group facing down the Last Shadowlord in final battle. Once we defeated him we gathered our fallen and rezzed and healed them ensuring no citizen was left behind. Lady Raelyn McKie opened a gate to the Castle in Britain and away we went to discuss what was to be done about the so called King Casa.


    It was a proud night to fight along so many Britannians to defeat the evil that has plagued our land for so long.
