Chancellor Murrias said it was very much their decision however. The two Chancellors seemed highly cordial and co-operative towards each other. Based on their interactions, they both clearly value learning and the pursuit of knowledge and what power that knowledge may bring (for example, the knowledge of how to create the Sneverheim, or as previously mentioned, old magical teachings). Chancellor Murrias seemed more inclined to want to use power to take action, whereas Chancellor Untapt inclined slightly more towards the threat of power being of value. Chancellor Untapt seemed surprised to hear that Lord Mian once declared (when I gave him the Tower Key/Tower leader regalia) that the Dymwan would withdraw from Orin Rakathan affairs and keep themselves to themselves. Clearly, he views otherwise. Fri, 13 Sep 2019 21:38:16 +0100 Subject: Miscellaneous Nation Notes - by: sarahb Kudos may be able to elaborate further - as he was the one who fielded the conversation - but I gather the Reader representative was frustrated by having a lack of point of contact within the Valley and demanded that he be given someone to deal with. Otherwise the Reader may consider withdrawing funding from the Valley. I believe that the Reader representative (known as Pius Costelli according to my records from previous mission) suggested Kudos would make a suitable representative. I highly recommend that we do not experience the consequences of not addressing this matter with the importance it deserves. Kevralyn Soulfire Chief Advisor, Aether Town Fri, 13 Sep 2019 21:18:45 +0100 Subject: Fortress of Pentar Update - by: sarahb At the Arcanaeum, Gabrille Chide arrived with two notable visitors residing in the Fortress of Pentar: Oracle Kiara, and Wayland Wycan. Wayland Wycan Wayland Wycan was not wearing any Nation colours. He said he had been leaving Orin Rakatha for good on his Void Ship (the largest in the Xenos armada) except that the Valley had broken it. This took place on a mission approximately six moons ago. I believe Wayland may seek revenge on the matter. Oracle Kiara Kiara observed that the spread of the followership of Dreadlord Araikas continues under Gabrille Chide's watch within the Fortress of Pentar. She mentioned she had been disappointed how some former friends within the Valley had been quick to pass judgement on her move to the Fortress. She seems to have respect for Chide, unlike certain other (more chaotic) parts of the Fortress. Kiara is now the Oracle in season, and holds one of the "aethereum" keys given by the Wizards Concillium Chancellor to the Oracles (I will provide more information on this elsewhere). Delta holds the other aethereum key. Gabrille Chide Chancellor Murrias and Gabrille Chide appeared to come to an accord over and resolve what was clearly a previous sore point. It appeared that when various members of the Concillium were expelled from their Nation by the Chancellor some while back, they moved to the Fortress taking with them some Concillium property. This has now been returned to the Wizards Concillium by Chide. In return, some restrictions that had been imposed upon the Fortress have been removed, I will try to recall what these were. The Fortress and Concillium were then at great lengths to publicly show that they had now found harmony amongst themselves. Nation Visit We unexpectedly found ourselves on the borders of Pentar lands later during our mission. We took the opportunity to make a foray into their lands to assist a local undercover agent so he could gain information from a Pentar tactician about routes they were using to assault our suppliers. This meant we engaged with the Pentar inside their lands and faced their bane/boon and some of their forces. Things of note: - while just outside their land, in turn various members of the party appeared to be demonically possessed, suddenly transforming their abilities to viciously attack others on the party. For example our Hospitaller started cause mortalling the warriors. A ritual level remove spiritual influence did remove this effect. - battle magic sometimes worked, but little and sporadically (e.g. repulsion was effective at propelling their front line back into their lands). High magic was effective, for example Thunderclap and Earthquake both worked. Our battle magic protections from the earthquake remained intact. - the parties we met were relying on grey magic for 'curing'. Their endurances appeared to be auto-dispelling, even the battle magic ones. Mana suppression spells may be worth considering against their forces in future. Both of the parties we fought had a Sorcerer/individual casting significant grey magic to support them and attack with, who was hard to access and kept their respective parties standing for some while. - of course a number of them were renewing their pacts against various things, e.g. the evil Sphere and sharp weapons - I believe our healing was as effective as normal within their lands (both at lay and ritual level) so their bane did not affect this. Our evil invocations did not have the desired effect, however this may well have been due to pacts against the Evil Sphere. - their minor border patrol forces were surprisingly resilient, and one would advise considerable preparation should further forays into their lands be desired.

Kettler von Harzon used to be head of the Yellow Guild and Sector Lord of Aether Town. He fought us a number of times along with part of an Aldonar Claw. Eventually, with the guidance of a Hag named "Granny", we were able to piece together three small fragments from the Tablet of Storms, which managed to calm "the storm" sufficiently that "it" would talk to us. The storm being Kettler himself. Kettler (upon seeing his once-acquaintance Kudos) provided some assistance on our mission, before saying that he would assist the Valley by providing a storm across the northern borders of our Nation while he remembered himself - which would likely not be for long. Notes Aside: interestingly, an old report in the Archives also mentions a swamp hag who said on that occasion that she would help retrieve the Tablet of Storms for us. Kevralyn Soulfire Mon, 09 Sep 2019 10:30:03 +0100 Subject: Weapons of Law - by: sarahb On our last mission, it was foreseen that our adventuring party would meet the future owner of one of the weapons of Law. We were given the Sword of Law, which was attuned to the Good Sphere yet corrupted by Hate. This weapon was claimed by the Chancellor (Nation Leader) of the Wizards Concillium, who called it to his hand and cast a very large spell to remove it of its taint. The Sword of Law has now transformed into a (much smaller) Rod. This means that three of the four weapons are held as follows: * Gabrille Chide of the Fortress of Pentar - Dagger (formerly Axe), attuned to Evil, cleansed by the Dreadlord * Judge Flam of the Shadowsfall (Shadowsrise faction) - Hammer (unchanged), attuned to Neutrality?, cleansed by the mists/mystics * Chancellor Murrias of the Wizards Concillium - Rod (formerly Sword), attuned to Good, cleansed by the Chancellor The location of the fourth weapon is as yet unknown. Notes 1) As an aside, we were assailed by the Circle Aflame on a number of occasions at the start of our mission. I believe this may have related to their attempts to modify a Quatrain or two in their records, possibly one relating to the fate of the Weapons of Law. 2) The pronunciation of some of these owners' names is less than straightforward, so by my recollection: Gabrille Chide - Jeh-brill Cheed, emphasis on brill Chancellor Murrias - Muh-rye-us, emphasis on rye Kevralyn Soulfire Mon, 09 Sep 2019 09:59:18 +0100 Subject: Map of the Plane of the Sleepless Dead - by: sarahb On a recent mission, the party needed to travel to Thranduil which we did by realm-hopping through the Plane of the Sleepless Dead. Our guide, Edvard le Voir, had a rough map of the different realms within it (although the map was burnt and torn in places). A copy of the map will be added to the Archives in due course, but for now, a list of known realms are as follows: - The Undying Lands - Necropolis, - Mian's Realm - Dark Pass - Bone - Disease and Decay - Valhalla - The Hall of Heroes, surrounded by Battle, which in turn is enclosed by Pain - Fort Humact - The Kimon - The Shadow Lodge - Hearth - Court of the Ghast King - Duat - The Assembly - Devil's Island - Halls of the Damned Amongst all these realms is the long winding "river" Styx that passes near to many. Otherwise the Void lies between them all. There are 19 realms marked as Un-named on the map. The largest realms are: - The Undying Lands - The Hall of Heroes - The Kimon - Halls of the Damned (the largest) Wed, 21 Aug 2019 11:20:02 +0100
