Biography : Followers of the Armageddon
(Previously known as the Zog Cabal)
All member of this group should be
considered extremely dangerous.
Any information on the group or any of their member will be rewarded
by the King.
In the history of the Ultima serie, Zog exchanged information
with the Wisps and acquired the spell Armaggedon. Too curious for
his own good, Zog casts the spell and all life is destroyed on Sosaria.
Many centuries later, when life returns, Zog's fossils are unearthed
and are recognized as the oldest fossils in the realm.
The introduction of the Followers of Armageddon to
Ultima Online is not a good sign indeed. Already, this mysterious
group has struck fear into the heart of Britannians with the brutal
murder of trainer Hartham. They took
responsability for this at Hartham's eulogy, where a member of the
group appeared and spoke the following words:
"All of your heroes, all of your institutions,
all of your ORDER
will FALL to US.
WE are the ZOG CABAL.
WE are LEGION.
WE DEVOUR STRUCTURE.
AND GIVE BACK CHAOS.
MAKE YOUR PEACE WITH LIFE.
FOR IT SHALL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN."
Since that day, the threat of the Followers
of Armageddon raised at an alarming rate. Their plan is quite simple:
Britannia is soiled, they will cleanse it. It appears they have
recovered the knowledge of the Armageddon spell, and intend to cast
it. Despite Sage Winslow's denial
of their existance, the Followers of Armageddon is not a children's
tale. They attempted one casting already, which fortunately failed.
It resulted in the opening of tunnels and gateways to what seems
to be a new world (Note: The introduction of the new lands available
in UO: The 2nd Age expansion). The evil of the FOA is so vast that
they were believed to be associated, at one point with another,
to all the other scourges of the land (Juo'Nar,
Lathiari and Kyrnia, and the
troll brothers, G'Thunk and G'Splat).
But even after the defeat of all of those, the FOA was still running
strong. They are also credited with the theft of the Relics
of Mondain, and repeated attacks on Crawworth and Sage Winslow.
Members of the cult were identified shortly
after the failed casting, as they travalled Britannia in an attempt
to find blackrock, apparently a reagent necessary to the casting
of Armageddon. The crown reacted swiftly by declaring traitors all
members and any who helps them, and offering considerable bounties
on their heads and rewards for any information. In the mad manhunt
the followed, many Followers were killed or captured. Although some
of them escaped during their transfer to the prison of Yew, they
were defeated when they summoned the black wisps from pentagrams
they had crafted. It was also around this time that the truth about
Sage Winslow was discovered: The real Winslow had been murdered
many months ago, and the one posing as him was in fact the leader
of the Followers.
After all these abominations were
delt with, and with the virtuous lead of Halston Montil, the downfall
of the Followers came quickly, up to the point of the capture of
their Leader in Dungeon Shame. Today once again Britannians can
sleep well, the world is not about to end (well, not because of
the Followers anyways).
