Summer Day - Fronepu

Eriol Blackdagger

Eriol steps past the gate and looks around. The coastal city seems much different than during the tournament, when he was last here. Walking through the city, the young Duke cant help but smile as he sees the citizens, working dilligently, yet seeing contentment on their faces. Coming to a well equipped guard, Eriol nods to him in deference, and asks, "Greetings sir. I am here to see Her Majesty, and I am expected. Could you please show me to her residence, and let her know I am here?"

Summer Evening - Fronepu

New War Breaking Out

Shattered Vales has declared war on Vordul Sanguinis. They gave the following reason:

Declaration of war upon the fledgling Obian nomad pilgrims in Keffa activates our mutual defence treaty with Obia as per The Peace Accords of the Southern coalition of nations 03-04-2020. We made clear advance warning that this would be our reaction to war upon Obia. We thus enter the First 30 Day War. The convoluted terms of this war were agreed between Obia and Vordul and are not terms by which we assess the progress of war. We will however honour the stipulation that takeover of enemy regions will not be a feature of the First 30 Day War if so desired.

These terms address the dispute between Obia and Vordul. A subsequent Second 30 Days War will if necessary follow this war as an exclusive war between Vordul and The Vales to resolve and determine outstanding issues between us directly.

Should as per Emperor Xlair's latest threats Vordul disavow your own terms of war and those proposed for negotiation by us, there will be unconstrained war for 30 days or until Vordul returns to their senses and seeks defined terms for war or peace.

The objective of our involvement in this war is to force acknowledgement of Obia's uncontested right to re-establish its realm in and around the currently rogue lands around its new capital of Keffa.

Yao Ling Pryde

Yao Ling walked into Keffa with a smile.

It had been far too long since a great power held sway in these lands, and it was good to see once more.

She stopped in front of the old abandoned temple to see it was no longer abandoned. Rough and ramshackle it was, but many people flocked to it.

She moved on to the Daishi temple to find it in much better shape, though fewer people congregated there. It would seem the new priests in these lands were most effective.

She made her way to the market next, seeking out anyone who might be interesting to talk to.


Yao Ling stopped at a cafe she knew well. They'd had good times and hard times over time, now those times seemed to be improving.

The cafe had been in that spot for as long as she remembered. And her memory stretched back so far even she could not recall it all. She remembered eating here the day Obea's first priest had arrived in Keffa and publicly declared war on the Daimons. She'd been here often while Keffa was Nothoi's northern fortification against Thalmarkin adventurism. She'd watched their children grow up under the flag of Caelint. She'd passed through from time to time in the years since, maintaining the temple for the locals since the great noble houses had packed up and gone west, and now another generation waited the tables under the flag of Obea as she approached.

Yao Ling smiled and found a table she liked. It gave her a good view over the market district, and she sat in the old comfortable chair that still survived. It was good to see the civilization of common people go on over the years, even as nobles came and went.

She placed a few coppers on the table and enjoyed the view of a bustling city in action.

17th July

Summer Evening - Fronepu

Nerta

The Old Man has a lot to say about the ring and he won't stop bothering me until I get this down so here you go:

The ring is part of history. Part of the tragedy of the continent.

The ring enters the story at the dawn of the Age of Blood when Emperor Tsu ordered it forged to honour the fallen champion of the north, Pontifex Argos of Melhed, Guardian of the Eternal Flame. Argos was slain at the Fell Crossing by the First Necromancer marking the beginning of the first invasion. The invasion ended with the death of that creature and from its staff the ring was forged. The dark copper spike at the base that had been driven into the earth to draw up the dreadful magic was cut free and worked in the heat of the Eternal Flame until it became that ring.

Officially Emperor Tsu included the ring in the Imperial Regalia though it was lost with the disappearance of the Emperor at the end of the Age of Blood. Fey Twix recovered the ring during the second invasion after battling with the Death Knight on the shores of Lake Salaman. But it was lost again during the Age of Ruin when the Tyrants burned the Imperial Palace during the reforging of Ar Agyr.

This ring is a symbol of many things. Of suffering, and cruelty but also our determination to forge something new from the ashes.

Be mindful of wearing it for too long, the First Necromancer is dead, but the Abyss will whisper promises.

I shall be in Fronepu soon and can answer your questions readily.
