Blood Wind Chalice - Future Mission 6 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 26  
Objective: Recover the Blood Wind Chalice and purify the North Wind.
Location: Northern World Window Waystation (heart of the Mist Lord's power base - currently covered in mists).


Efforts are ongoing to redress the balance of the Four Winds. A mission was dispatched to the shrine of the Blood Wind's Oracle earlier this year. The group were seeking to obtain a chalice that had been hidden by the Oracle many years ago. Our best information is that this Chalice can be used in a rite to 'purify' the North Wind. The Towers that contribute blood to this rite will gain the 'favour' of the Four Winds.

A number of groups took an interest in this artefact: Halmadon's Heights, Dymwan Archaeologists, Labyrinth of Xenos, and Knights of Our Dark Lady. The Dymwan Archaeologists were defeated in battle with the Knights of Our Dark Lady.

The Kern Valley group managed to obtain the chalice, after they performed a ritual, and battled the guardians.

Over the course of the mission there were several combats with the Knights of Our Dark Lady, including with their Knight, Sir Malleus du Egrise, which weakened both sides (future groups dealing with the KoODL should beware their knife men). The Knight agreed to withdraw prior to the chalice being obtained if someone was brave enough to fight him one-on-one. After the chalice was obtained, Sir Malleus du Egrise challenged the party once more (granting a few hours to prepare).

During this time, the Chalice was given to Halmadon's Heights for safekeeping. They agreed that - as it is not an evil item, they will keep it safe for the Valley and leave the area.

Sir Malleus du Egrise learned of this and pursued the Halmadonians. He killed their group and took the chalice. After that he departed for the Ikarthian Triangle.

Until now, all scrying attempts to locate either this Knight or the Chalice have failed. However, we have learned that the Chalice is now in the Northern World Window Waystation. It is imperative that this Chalice is recovered, and that the North Wind is purified. This mission may best be undertaken by those adventurers who are seeking to deal with the Mist Lord once and for all.

Sorceress Soulfire,

On my last mission we were in the Ikarthian Triangle and we ecnountered a group of Halmadonians led by a knight (who's name escapes me, I don't have my notes with me...) who were going to attack Sir Malleus in reprisal for a raid he carried out on them (during which he unusually didn't announce himself). Only one of them returned, in a very battered state I might add. So Sir Malleus is obviously still about and causing problems.

If half the things I've heard about the KoODL are true I imagine he's going to be quite a handful to deal with.

Kelvin,

That's slightly different than I remember, the Halmadonian that survived the fight with Sir Malleus told us that he'd wiped out a group on it's way back to their tower after some mission (which is probably the one Lady Kevralyn is talking about) and his group had been sent to exact retribution (or probably to try and recover the item Reading between the lines) so not sure where the info on him not announcing himself comes from I suspect the Halmadonian scout we met on approaching the waystation was a little confused

Wizard Kelvin,

It seems likely that this attempted attack by the Halmadonians was triggered by Sir Malleus's capture of the Chalice. It would be unusual if he did not announce himself, as previously he has been known for honourable conduct. A number of Valley parties have met Sir Malleus du Egrise over the years.

Most recently, he was the Black King's Knight in the last Immortal Game. He bore the title "Dark's Champion", and appeared to follow the Dark Avatar, although spoke dismissively of Otion Wraithchild.

Sir Malleus withdrew from the Immortal Game when he was obliged to face a Hospitaller Priest, Camelot, in combat and chose not to fight an unarmed healer.

It is possible, however, that the KoODL have lost possession of the Chalice altogether, and that it is now held by the Mist Lord or his followers.

Sir Salvos was the name of the questing knight, now dead by all accounts. Should have a full report out in the next day or so...

That's why it stuck in my mind. It seemed unusual behaviour for a knight, albeit a dark aligned one.

I deinitely remember the survivor telling me Sir Malleus didn't announce himself and he also said that Sir Malleus had carried out a raid on one of their encampments which was what they were avenging, all to do with the chalice as you say.

If the Mistlord has the chalice now that will be a serious problem. The only reason my group and I survived our encounter with him was that we were beneath his notice. He'll be a tough opponent for any valley group.
