Nidaros Marks One Year Rebirth!
Return to TopSubmit News!
Posted on Wednesday, September 28, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT by Morpheus Mardox (Chesapeake)

           The player run city of Nidaros marked it's first anniversary last eve as members of the Paxlair Alliance gathered at the cities banner for a night of fun, food, and festivities to mark the occasion. Kicking off the night was the Tuesday Paxlair meeting with announcements and convocation from Governor Winfield with upcoming scheduled events from around thier alliance. Lady Pheonix spoke of a Thanksgiving feast held yearly in the city of Dragons Watch, where players will bring hired npcs to dinner in the hopes of winning the "name game" by creatings a famous persons name with the two npc's. A pumpkin pie eating contest, along with a Thanksgiving Turkey (chicken) battle to be held much to the delight of those in attendance! Also noted were the emergence of thier Friday Night Adventures beginning at 8pm est. Last weeks run was to the hallowed grounds of the foul Medusa!



            With the area decorated to the hilt the festivities soon were well underway as the custom brewed ale and liquers flowed like spring rains. Foods aplenty as fruits of the cities labor were abundant. Players enjoyed each others company and anxiously awaited the start of the nights main event, the Horse Race!


             Riders mustered along the start/finish line with thier freshly tamed and unbonded mounts, Governor Winfield was spotted laying fish along the road in the hopes that perhaps they may guide him along his way or even perhaps slip up his fellow racers as well! I bought two myself for 3 gold peices per! Once all racers were set the horn was sounded to begin as competitors ran hard and fast en route from Nidaros to Minoc and back.



             The trail long and treacherous, racers distanced themselves from one another along the stretch. In the end as he crossed the finish line slightly a screen or two ahead of Lady Winmere, The Old man Winfield himself was delcared the winner! Shortly following Winmere in Second place was Lord Nanoc of Dragons Watch in third. The course claimed a few as Lady Pheonix wandered in lost and beleaguered after the long run.
             Immediately following the nights main event speeches were heard from the Statehood's Governor Winfield, Nidaros' Mayor Zanku, along with the Town Librarian Maedhros. Winners were announced in the short story contest as Lord Mach of DWxC was named the champion writer with his selection being added to the city library for all to enjoy. Gifts were exchanged as the Paxlair Kitchen presented an anniversary cake to the Town Mayor along with Nidaros' offer of thanks to the Statehood's leader in the form of a lucky fishing hat pictured below! Winfield looked quite sporty in his new duds! The city of Guardians Gate and the Royal Britannian Guards also presented the city with a commemorative engraved trophy and Limited edition library selection to add to it's ever growing collection.



             With the formalities now complete the party really got goin as the attendee's did their best to empty the various selections of home brewed spirits and such about the area. My head a tad fuzzy today, I can say that the brewers of Nidaros know thier brew! Alas with any good party the night must come to an end.....
             Thanking those in attendance Mayor Zanku wished everyone a good eve and closed the evenings festivities.
                                             Congratulations to the city of Nidaros on thier First anniversary!

Guardians Gate Auction Reveals Shows Fragile State of Sosarian Economic Recovery

       The successful RBG auction held Friday September 23rd  from 9pm to 12:10pm showed that despite the better employment numbers the Sosarian economy is still a rapidly changing. Selling everything from cow statues to teleport tiles to random elemental scythes the RBG auction is currently the only auction on Chesapeake. This makes it invaluable to see the current economic state of Sosaria and while the unemployed hordes that we had sadly grown used to seeing around all the banks have disappeared, the Sosarian economy is still highly volatile.


       Things that once sold for 20 million gold have are now barely moving for 11 million. Other items continue to gain value though making it difficult for the average Sosarian to judge what things are worth. The RBG auction had 2 separate lots of teleport tiles that would have once fetched 20 million. The first sold for 12.2 million and the second for a mere 11 million, with the second lot only gathering one bid. Messana Cat Statues from Catskills sold for a mere 550,000 gold for a set of 2. Pushme Pullyu's have also seen a dramatic loss in value with a set of two going for a mere 1.5 million. Of course some items have held their value very well as the bidding war between Abby Normal of UFO and Oberon over a set of 120 Mysticism, Imbuing and Focus scrolls, they ended up selling to Oberon for 7.2. A Crystallized Essence of course sold rapidly for 5.5 million gold. A total of 20 lots did not sell including EM Christmas Items and 20 powders of fortification showing that past economic trends are not necessarily holding true. The key lesson of the auction tonight is that Sosaria is currently a buyers market so remember to come out and see the deals!

Skeleton Key Shipping Company Sweeps The 2011 Crabbin Tournament, Sons of the Sea in Trinsic City Friday, September 16th 2011

Click the image to open in full size.

The crew of the SKS Star, sponsored by the township of Kijustsu Anei Village has something to be proud of for years and years to come. Through the power of teamwork and months and months of dedication they have swept every category in the Sons of the Sea, 2011 Feelin' Crabby Tournament!!!

The ship may have been sponsored by Kijustsu Anei Village however are not all of its crew are inhabitants, they also come from other townships and entities. We feel that each township should share in the victory such as Assistant Vice Admiral Adrianna from Zedland City, Crabber Calixtula from Moria Village, Janitor Poopsie from Area 51, Firstmate Kaiko from Kijustsu Anei Keys, Deck Boss Elves from Kijustsu Anei Village, Crabber Lure Alie from Pitmuck Settlement, Crabber Heimaterde from Kijustsu Anei Village, Deck Boss Bishop from Kijustsu Anei Village and Captain Orin from Kijustsu Anei Keys. Guildmaster Santiago from the Sons of the Sea welcomed the crews from the SKS Star and the never give up, never surrender crew of the Lil' Morsel.

"Ahoy every body And welcome to da 'wards ceremony here. It be a long tournament dis summer with lot's o' BEEG Crabs bein' caught da end der can only be da one winner. Lotsa crew be 'aulin' dat crab dis summer! But dere be one crew dat deserve a special mention. Beeg mention for BEEG effort! Da Crew o' da Lil' Morsel Captain Sushi! She be da baddest crabber around! Just by 'erself she caught seven thousand crabs over da tournament.

Now we get to da moment ye be waitin' for! Ahem! Ahem! We start with Vessel achievements. Amassing a total of 11,617 total crustaceans Dat be crabs and lobstahs, Da award goes to The SKS Star!

Da next vessel achievement be for da most crabs and lobstahs be caught Dat are BEEG BEEG crustaceans Catching 155 BEEG Crustaceans Da winners be da crew o' da SKS Star!

Click the image to open in full size.

Santiago went on to announce the Individual achievements in the following categories.
-Most Caught Crustaceans
-Most Named Catches By Individual
-Heaviest Crab Caught
-Heaviest Lobster Caught

Sweeping all four categories was Captain Orin of the SKS Star and in a very close second for Heaviest Crab Caught was SKS Star Deck Boss Bishop from the Empire of Valor guild!

"After der been five tournament windows. After bravin' da 'igh Seas, Fighten da Mobey Lobstahs. Worryin dat ye may not be commin' 'ome to ya lovies. Dem 'igh Seas be unforgiven! An amazing 4599 crabs and lobstahs is da record set by da winner o' da individual catch category Orin!

In recognition of dees many achievements. Da Son's o' Da Sea is 'onored to dub Orin da Champion o' dis tournament!"

Santiago embroidered the back of Orin's hat recognizing the accomplishment. To assist with the embroidering was none other then the mischievous and more diabolically ebil goddess in the history of world Hot Pi... *cough* err Proverbial Goddess of Death Mesanna! The SKS Crew was thrilled to see her once again after their encounter with her on the Seas during one of the tournament windows, where they plotted the downfall of the Noble and innocent Gareth.

The crew of the SKS Star presented Santiago with a gift of appreciation in the form of backpack art depicting the SKS Santiago [Sons of the Sea, Trinsic] crabbing on the high seas which was put together by Calixtula, a statue engraved “Santiago may have Crabs but we still Lobs him” and a chest engraved Santiagos Chest, 2011 Crabbin tournament.

Santiago sent a message for us to pass along to the Crew of the SKS Star "Crew names will be added to ships in the Sons of the Seao Also, Crabbin' Club sashes are doable for the winning ship. I have the Crew, let them know to see me at some point and I'll get them for them"

Click the image to open in full size.

The crew of the SKS Star would also like to say a few words and sing a song for those who are baffled by their ability to have five crabbers going on one vessel with such high catch results. First for high results just remember this, there is no difference between a full lobster trap and an empty lobster trap, just a little assistance with the same type will empty a full trap and place an empty trap Also running crabbing drills improves your speed and accuracy...just ask Bishop!

And Remember!!!!
Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the crab lines.
*Bob* and Pull, *Bob* and Pull,
Imagination is the Key!

Orc Horde Defeated. Evidence of Necromantic Experiment Discovered at Orc Fort.

Orc Horde Defeated. Evidence of Necromantic Experiment Discovered.

Tonight a band of hired mercenaries and Guardsmen infiltrated the Blackrock Mine in Eastern Delucia. There the Britannians - who managed to imitate their Orcish counterparts a bit too well for comfort - discovered what appears to be the origin of the recent raids.

Set amongst the crags and mine shafts stands a building. Simple. Square. Bearing with it the accutrements one might expect of an Orc Fort. But it was far too perfect. Almost human.

Within stood the remains of Necromantic experiments far too advanced for such Savages. Blackrock Tools. Nightshade. Vials of Human Blood and Venom.

Before we could investigate further the missing Warbozz and his Lieutenants descended upon us. The struggle wasn't long. The losses to our side were ...acceptable. It is rumored one Mad Martigan recovered parts of the Chieftains brains when he fell.

When we returned members of the band continued to sift through the lab. One thing was clear. Whomever had been here left precious little for investigators. Either this hooded stranger is cautious. Or she knew we were coming.

It is rather obvious who we are dealing with. ...Again.

A Prisoners Journal
EM Seppo

The following journal was recovered from the orcish laboratory. The author went by the name of Tomás Pickett.
These are the events of the days since my capture:
Afternoon, Day 3: Sitting in this corner for the past two days, wondering if orcs really do eat humans alive, it was a pleasant surprise when an orc named Jogug gave me the writing materials from my rucksack. I have decided to make the most of this opportunity by writing this journal. It is not that I have given up hope of being rescue, it’s just that no one knows that I need rescuing. My family do not expect me back from my travels for a full month, and no one was with me at the time of my capture. Considering the circumstances, I am proud of the fact that I have not lost my composure.

Evening, Day 3: Ugh, now I know why orcs are not known for their cuisine. My meal consisted of scraps of what was identified as Bristly Grunting Thing, followed by few grunts. Normally I enjoy a good wild boar, but this was repulsive. Yet, I am glad not to be the one in the cooking pot. Jogug even discreetly passed me some beer which was not half bad. Curious how one can enjoy moments of comfort even in the darkest hour.

Morning, Day 4: *drops of blood cover the page* Bloody orcs! Woke up with a kick to my stomach. Before I know it, they cut my arm and let my blood drip into some kind of a vial. stoped the bleeding with a bandage afterwards, bless his soul.

Afternoon, Day 4: They have setup what seems to be an alchemy lab in here. I never thought orcs were capable of such advanced science. But, the most baffling thing is that they got my blood in the vial right up there with bubbling flasks and heaps of blackrocks. What in the world is going on!?

Evening, Day 4: Jogug has been taking heat from the other orcs for fixing me up this morning. If he was not the biggest of them, I am afraid it would have been much worse. I got my first glimpse of the clan leader (warbozz) this evening. A big brute by the looks of it.

Morning, Day 5: A hooded rider on a black horse arrived. Whatever brief moment of joy I felt on seeing another human, it fled when I felt her aura. I knew I was in the presence of something sinister. All the other orcs seemed to be afraid of her, even the warbozz. The stranger walked straight to the lab, ignoring my existence. Barking some orders, that I could not make out, she brought out a vial from her robe. The contents of which she mixed to the potion that the orcish alchemist had already prepared… with my blood in it! Then turning around, she marched out and jumped on her horse to ride away. I hope that is the last I see of the hooded stranger and by the looks of it, the orcs seem to feel the same way.

Afternoon, Day 5: This afternoon brought a strange sight. More than two dozen orcs lined up in front of the warbozz. Jogug amongst them. Each one of them were given a bottle filled with the potion prepared earlier. Then, they proceeded to thump their chests in a show of bravado before marching out. Jogug seemed quite subdued. I got the feeling that he was not enthusiastic about what was happening. I certainly was not enthusiastic about seeing him leave. I am afraid that this bodes ill for my immediate future.

Night, Day 5: Woke up to a blood-curling shriek from the warbozz. It seems that he had a nightmare. I did not think that orcs could have nightmares. Feeling quite hungry, no one bothered to share any food with me last evening. How I miss Jogug. Sigh, how I miss my family and friends.

Morning, Day 6: Blooodddy hell. They cut me up again to take more blood from me. Pleading for a bandaid only got me a kick in the stomach and a finger in the direction of a giant stag. Apparently, I am to be replaced by the stag. Bloody orcs!

Note from the Thiefmaster
EM Seppo

Captain Jenkins,

I believe this information will be of some use to you. My spies have uncovered the hand of the leader “warbozz” of cove orc fort behind the recent attacks on the roads leading to Britain. This information was gathered after interviewing Urpurk in Britain and Zughan in cove fort. Both of them confirmed that the warbozz has been acting peculiar, as of late. Alas, his whereabouts remain unknown at this moment.

Furthermore, according to Zughan, this change in behavior began after a visit from a “hooded stranger” on a “black horse.” While it may be too early to say anything with certainty, you might remember another hooded friend of ours from not so long ago.

However, more urgently, Zughan also stated that the warbozz has been sending for more of his orcs routinely on Saturdays at 3:00 PM PST. If I may be bold enough to make a suggestion: Intercept this transaction and, by stealth or force, uncover the current location of the warbozz. This will likely lead to defeating the orc raiders, at the least. Perhaps, even give a clue as to the purpose behind these raids.


OOC Announcements:

1. Meet Captain Jenkins in the throne room on Saturday Sep 10 at 2:40 PM PST. Bring along a pair of Big Majik Flippers, if you have one.

The Game of Intrigue: News and Rumors

Rumors are often just that. Rumors. But sometimes even cheap tavern gossip bears with it a single grain of truth.

These are the rumors being exchanged in establishments throughout Britannia and the Border Kingdoms.

You are invited to build on this list.
A band of filthy, unkept Orcs were seen prowling the streets of Luna this weekend.

Being a city outside the hegemony of Britain, the Greenskins went about their business unmolested and offered no hostility in turn for their offending stench and threatening glares.

The group seems to be up to no good. Whispering amongst themselves. Pointing and glaring at various 'hummiez.' Purchasing weapons and armor.

Given recent events in Western Britain and Skara Brae, there is some concern over the presence of these raiders and what they might have planned for Malas.

* * *

Ifan Shafiri - the Prime Minister of Umbra - is missing.

The nature of his disappearance remains undetermined. But sources close to Shafiri claim the aging patriarch had been partaking in various illicit substances and chemicals in the weeks leading up to his disappearance. Perhaps in an attempt to restore his youth.

Shafiri is described as a man of average height (though tall amongst the Umbral), slight build, silver hair and dark skin. He wears green robes, often with the hood up, and possesses a ghastly scar on his nose, an injury inflicted upon him by a member of House Seiren.

A replacement for the Prime Minister is currently being sought.

* * *

Sister Frances, Tari Tiwele and Sluggy Freelance spent their evening guarding the Sea Witch Tavern this last weekend.

It appears the enigmatic A - still concerned with revenge against the Magincians - remains at large.

In response the Magincians have begun forming a militia of their own. But this has stoked fears in Britain that the Magincians is massing for a war with the recovering Kingdom.

The truth remains to be seen

... Neptune's Curiosties
My travels have taken me to yet another player run and designed museum here in the land of Great Lakes. This one is owned by Neptune and has may curious and wonderful items housed in it.

Many things do not appear as they really are as Neptune pointed out to me. It is important in this museum to click on items and read books near items to truly understand and experience their uniqueness.

Repeat these words to the wisp and get a reply

The hidden features are very entertaining and the volume of items which include a full set wall carving, void tower, a petal from the golden lotus of heaven, pirate eye patch, night camouflage face paint, a feather of peace from an ethereal mention a few are a delight.

This museum is private but Neptune is more than happy to give private tours of his wonderland.

Neptune is one of those players that is around a lot and easy to run across. The cords to the museum are 57o 28'S, 32o 50'W

Flying Piglet is featured above, the one item that Lady Lava covets and still has not got gotten

Owain Surrey Dreamcatcher featured in this screenshot

Thank you Neptune for the private tour and sharing some Great Lakes history with me.

[EM News] Orcs Raid the Outskirts of Britain. Address from Captain Jenkins.
Return to TopSubmit News! Comment on this article
Posted on Tuesday, September 6, 2011, 3:45 PM EDT by WarderDragon (Baja)
Orcs Raid the Outskirts of Britain.
EM Seppo

Few hours ago, a caravan was attacked by a raiding party of orcs at Britain crossroads. Since then, we have received several reports of skirmishes with the orcs at the outskirts of Britain. This is of a great concern as we have largely enjoyed peace with the orcs in the recent past. At this time, we do not know if these are the actions of a single clan or something more. However, early reports indicate that the orcs in the raiding party possess great strength.

Guards have already been dispatched to resist the raiders. All citizens are urged to aid the guards in defending our roads. Also, investigators are called to find out the reason behind the raids. If we can find out the responsible party, we could yet prevent a fullscale war.


Captain Jenkins

OOC Notes:

1. The orc raiders will continue to attack till we figure out whats going on. This will require interviewing people and piecing together the clues. More orc raiders will spawn at 3:00 PM PST on weekend days, and between 8:00 to 9:00 PM PST on weeknights. If you find anything noteworthy, please either jot it down in a book and drop it in the mailbox at the rewards hall in Malas, or use the feedback link on the EM website to send in your report.

2. The raiders are most vulnerable to poison and then, energy. Their defenses are strongest against fire. Asking a pet to guard you and then attacking them will allow your pet to attack the raiders.

3. The raiders on occassion will drop a trinket. Please, do not double click and use the said trinket or it will disappear.

The Bloodied Journal of Pasaul Darkpin
Author Unknown

The Britannian Press received the following three nights ago.

It would appear a group of thieves and fortune seekers - paid to hunt the enigmatic A - have met their demise. Below are the contents of the journal sent to us.

Dear Sir,

I bring you this news from one of my scouts whom I have sent to Magincia with reports of new attacks.

He brought back this slightly charred and blood covered journal. I would give it to you before the guards so that the people might know the truth before it is rewritten...

This is the journal of Pasaul Darkpin.

I shall write this to keep record of my story that with hope may make me famous someday so that bards will entertain kings with my stories.

Who would have ever thought gypsy's could be robbed in broad daylight?
Myself, Rosemon, and Tallin were on our way to Yew, when we came across their camp, They must have had one helluva night because we were not only able to sneak into their wagons and tents, we made off with our pockets a little heavier all the while they slumbered the day away. One of these days I really must take part in one of those parties just to see for myself.

Day 4.
We made the city of yew nothing more than a rest stop, It seems the elves were too busy with their various trades for us to ply ours. The trip was not a complete loss however, we began to hear rumors that the city of pride was no longer happy with their status and were planning to form their own government... (it looks like this overcast day may begin to brighten after all)

Day 9.
We traveled in what bards must call "a blink of an eye" for our travels to a port were filled with days of simple travel. We avoided the main roads and kept to wooded areas as best as we could. Tallin wished to avoid major towns and moongates in case any guards might recognize us.

Day 13.
If we did not have bad luck lately we would have none at all. We were unable to reach magincia due to a blockade, so our ship was forced to turn back. Not to be discouraged however we "borrowed" a rowboat and decided to try and slip by the blockade at night. Our boat however was more worn than we had noticed and only a few yards from the ship did we find ourselves quickly sinking into the black and possibly monster filled waters around the isle of pride. We were forced to abandon not only our boat, but most of our items in which we use to ply our trade.

Day 27.
I must really try hard to rewrite in detail the days my journal is now missing because of the fight Rosemon and I had the other day. He was furious that I kept updating my journal whenever I found the time and more so that I managed to keep it instead of trying to save our gear before it sank into the black waters the night we were forced to swim the remainder of the way to the magincian shore.

Day 28.
We have spent the last week in magincia trying to understand just how we might make a good profit from the recent events, We found a tavern called the "Sea Witch" that seemed like a good place to hear profitable information. We befriended a bard named Quint who seemed an overly friendly fellow at first however he bought us several rounds of a very good vintage wine and told us more than a few stories of what was going on as of late. The one that peaked our interest was of a bounty on a man known only as "A". Apparently from what we can make of it, the "A" character was bending his revenge over some wench on the whole isle of magincia and one of the locals wanted him stopped. The had even gone on to offer one million gold coins to the ones who could not only stop him but bring proof.

Day 30.
Quint and myself have decided to talk to Rosemon and Tallin to form a group with the skills to hunt down this bounty that could set us all up for life. I explained our various skills to Quint and Tallin gave us more information on the people that we could have ever found on our own. He went on to explain that our target is reputed to be a mage of some power and if possible we should try to find one of our own, The others however were not too thrilled with the idea of having to part with more of their reward money should we pull this off and I agree with them.

Day 32.
Quint has allowed us to stay at his home since what funds we had have now run their course, He has a small little hovel, one that i would not have thought a bard would stay in. The house was dry and warm so i cannot complain too much. We have kept food and drink in our bellies and when we get this bounty we will be set for life, Maybe buy a house in Brit and write the story of my life and adventures.

Day 36.
We have set ourselves to work by asking about town to try and find the person responsible for this bounty, we want to make sure it is more than just rumor as well to know whom we may be working for. I feel that we might be either exposing ourselves to a possible foe or that the bounty may be nothing more than another wild bard tale used to lure adventures into the wild where bandits or monsters will be set upon them, then a stroke of luck.... It seems the rumor is true after all. Rosemon and Tallin found the generous man outside the marketplace. He seemed dressed in finery of a noble however he did not carry himself as such. Tallin left Rosemon with the man and came to find Quint and myself so that we might all meet and discuss the terms of this job. The man never did give his name, and we did not press the issue, However he did give us an advance of 2000 gold to re-equip ourselves and prepare for a good hunt. We left him then and began our preparations by finding a tinker who could fashion a few items used to bypass a lock or two and a local mage who could provide us with a few scrolls to protect ourselves in the event our target was a spellcaster of some sort. After we procure our items tomorrow eve we will begin our hunt. However since we still have quite a bit of gold left we four have decided to have a night of fun and merriment because there is no telling when we might be near a town again to enjoy the finer things.

*This page is marred by the tell tell signs of various ink smudges as well as candle wax and smells faintly of strong liquor.*

Oh gods!!! How i am able to hold this quill and still write with any semblance to words is beyond even me. (I must though or else a book of our exploits may never get written) As the night wore on, we four found ourselves in the Sea Witch with bottles of various vintages in each hand and the company of women every time our gold landed on the table. Quint and Tallin were attempting to sing for the enjoyment of the tavern and i must say that with drinks in him, Quint's ability to sing falters greatly. It must have been four bells past midnight before we were able to stagger back to the cottage we have been staying in. Tallin fell in the woodpile next to the cook pot and he now snores soundly, Rosemon is slumped over the table across from me with one of Quint's lutes clutched in his hand as if it were his own, Quint is sound asleep across the room on the couch and from the noises i heard from him earlier i do not wish to see him when he wakes. I however must pen the happenings down so we can all look back someday and see how foolish we were in our youth...

oh gods... who would be knocking at this hour? perhaps it is some of the ladies from earlier and if so i will be adding a bit more flavor to this book, well i will leave off here so that i might answer the door and enjoy the rest of the night...

Feeding the Sea Dragons
Return to TopSubmit News! Comment on this article
Posted on Tuesday, September 6, 2011, 10:57 AM EDT by Petra Fyde (LegendsAOL)

Submitted by a Guest Writer - name withheld.

The commendable cast of ‘sea dragon herders’ has fallen into a steady routine of feeding the mythical beasts once per day. The sea dragons have been on a steady diet of both deep and regular sea serpents. About a week’s time has passed since the methods on feeding had been mastered by the folks of Legends. Little has changed since the feedings began. All the recovered scales from both the Mythical Sea Dragons and the Bal’ Thrans have been accounted for and are in safe hands.

This evening we had not fed the dragons due to some other activities and happenings. It was late in the evening when a few of the followers of Legends had gathered to feed the dragons that some odd occurrences began to take place.

It appears that Arius McNuge and I had been the only witnesses to the first of these two strange events. We had just finished slaying a regular sea serpent for the dragons to feast upon when an explosion of epic proportions, which appeared to have originated from one of the sea dragons, captured our attention. It was a massive explosion that made a big bang noise and spread several yards covering a large area. The explosion was bright blue in color, much like the color of the sea dragon’s scales. However, it did not seem to cause any harm to myself, Arius or the sea dragons.

I have seen two large explosions in the past that resemble this one. The color was quite similar to the cloud of debris given off from a successful cast of the Armageddon spell. The size and appearance of the blast was identical to the type of blast seen coming from the Bal’ Thran, only this one did not do any damage. We can only assume that the blast was a result of the feeding but it is unknown at this time.

At nearly the same time of the blast another occurrence took place. Luxon Artisan had discovered that Armondo Pascal’s dog Franchesco was on the loose again and wandering the town of Jhelom. Several of Legends finest had gathered to identify the pup and track him as we suspected he may lead us to another clue. Unfortunately he just continued to wonder about and was last seen inside the Jhelom Armory.

We suspect that these two events are related but are not for certain. For now we must continue to feed the dragons regularly in hopes that soon there will be a young Mythical Sea Dragon amongst us. It has also been advised that the citizens of Legends keep a close eye on Franchesco, as we know he can pick up a trail and point his nose and us towards more clues involving the Mythical Sea Dragons. I encourage all to investigate further and submit any data recorded to the EM mail box.

Attempted Murder!

Professor Grimm wanted to meet us all at the counselors hall in Britain.
Many people came.
After defeating Golgari it was time to put a end to this chapter.

Click the image to open in full size.

The Professor wanted to destroy the Limbus and after that we would go have a celebration at the Beer garden in Moonglow.

Grimm wanted to waste no more time and opened a gate to the Limbus.

Click the image to open in full size.

The professor seem to bit embarrassed to tell he could only find one way to close the limbus.
With a huge explosion!
He had placed several boxes around the limbus full of black powder.
We all took a few steps back when the professor ignited the fuses that would set of the black powder.

Several huge explosion happened around the Limbus.
The sound of the explosion must have been heard all the way to the other side of Sosaria!

When the smoke cleared the limbus was gone.

Pleased with the result Professor grimm invited us for a well deserved party at the Moonglow Beer garden.

He thanked everyone for all the help on stopping Golgari and the many strange creatures they had to defeat over the last months.

Click the image to open in full size.

It was a glorious day.
The people deserved this celebration.
People where laughing and dancing and a lot of alcohol been past around.
While everyone had a good time ,someone gave me a message to go home for a important guild meeting.
It would only take a short time.

In the meantime the stranger in the black hooded robe appeared at the Beer garden.

Click the image to open in full size.

This mysterious guest been seen before.
One of my friends Alia thought she recognized this person.
But the stranger kept hiding her face.

But then things turned dark.
She stood only a few steps away from the Professor.
She turned to him and with a deep voice she said:

The professor remembered seeing her before and he asked what she wanted from him.

"Llew netsil ton od uoy , Grimm!" the cloaked figure replied.

The professor shook his head and told her he did not understand her.

"Nossel a hcaet ot emit!"

The stranger took a few steps forward to stand right in front of the professor.

"Dne ot gniog si snamuh of emit eht!"

Her eyes glowed red and the professor started to scream "NO! STOP!"

Before anyone could realize what was happening the stranger draws a golden dagger and stabbed Grimm in his chest.

Click the image to open in full size.

The guests where shocked what happened right in front of there eyes.
Before they even could capture the assassin she recalled away.

Only moments later i arrived back at the beer garden seeing the professor laying down on the ground.
What happened here?
Many people surrounded the professor.
There was a lot of confusion going on.

Then a female elf arrived.

Click the image to open in full size.

Elesil Daelwon.
She is a reputable investigator.
She came to see what happened and started to ask questions to the guests.

Click the image to open in full size.

Some of the guests where to drunk to even recall what happened.
But some guests seem to be clear about it.
"Some evil looking woman draped in dark shrouds.
She spoke in a odd tongue...noone understood until it was too late..." said Sir Devin Vanzil.
I went to see Alia and asked her what she saw.
But she was clear to me. "Lady Dark Angel stabbed him!"
I can not believe that D.A. would this kinda assassination. Its not her style.
But how can i ignore what Alia said to me? She knows her.
She hunted with her for many years.
But the Dark Angel i know never worn black. She wears a golden armor.
And i can sense her evil karma when she is around.I don't sense her now.
I did not heard from her anymore after the last encounter in Drachental where she failed to destroy the town.

We had her under control for years...Did we loose the control?

Elesil checked Grimm body again.
To her surprise she saw that Grimm was still alive.
She hurried and with a magical spell the transported Grimm and herself to the hospital.

Few minutes later she came back with news on the professor.

Click the image to open in full size.

She said Grimm was alive but that he was in a very deep sleep.
Medics call this a coma.
The wound from the dagger can be healed but the poison still runs trough Grimms body.
Its not certain that they can remove this poison.
The only way to help Grimm is to find the attacker and get the cure for Grimm.

Elesil asked if the people wanted to visit Grimm at the hospital.
Many of us wanted to see how his condition was.

Click the image to open in full size.

Poor Grimm, what did he do to deserve this?
Our friend needs our help.

Elesil ask us to leave quietly the room.
She would do more investigation on the murder attempt.
And will call on us when she finds out more.

We all headed back home.
What could have been a celebration turned into a nightmare.

I tried to get some sleep but i kept thinking about what happened at the Beer garden.
Maybe i should not ignore all the signs.
First the book with the warning not to go after Golgari that was signed with the initials D.A.
Then the golden dagger with the inscriptions "soon!".
Alia was sure she recognized D.A. as the stranger.
I have a hard time to accept this.
Its not her style!

Early this morning i went to have a look how the professor was.
When i arrived just north of the Lyceaum in Moonglow i saw some guards standing in front of the hospital.

Click the image to open in full size.

The medicus that was with the professor said that the condition of the professor was still bad.
The chance that Grimm would never awake from this coma if we don't find the antidote was big.
He might even die!

Click the image to open in full size.

I don't know if Grimm could hear me but i made him a promise.
We will find the person who did this and bring her to Justice.

The medicus told me that it was time to leave.
Everyone is welcome to visit the professor now and then but not too long.
They will do everything to try to keep him alive.

I left for britain to see if i can find Elesil the investigator.
While i passed one of the guards house near the castle i noticed a wanted poster at the wall.

Click the image to open in full size.

Wanted for Murder???
But the professor was not death?
Do they want to let them think the assassination was a success?

The picture of the wanted person looked a lot like Dark Angel.

Death or Alive?
Ten million gold reward?
If bounty hunters read this they going to try to kill her.
We might need her alive for the antidote.
If D.A. really did this they have no idea what they up against.
I have to talk to the investigator to try to stop this hunt!
Hunting her could result in a lot more deaths!

I want to help the professor but i can not allow revenge!
I will have a meeting at my house and send my scouts, Pegasus,Buzzz and Tom out to see if they can locate D.A.
Maybe i can talk to her so we can solve this problem without more blood spilled!
If this is really the Dark Angel i know...Then i hope the Virtues will protect us all!

Origin Labor Day Event
Return to TopSubmit News!
Posted on Sunday, September 4, 2011, 8:36 PM EDT by Larisa (Origin)

Tonight was Origins Labor Day Festivities! EM's Faine and Fiorella had an exciting and dangerous night planned for us. A nice crowd gathered at the top of Luna bank while we waited for our EM's.

Faine and Fiorella showed up sporting fancy beachware!

Once they arrived it was off to the beach for a bit of surf and turf. Faine and Fiorella seemed to have a bit of a quarrel going on between them, something about seeing a sea creature come up onto the beach...Fiorella grinned evily as she flashed her white nets and stepped nimbly into the water...INCOMING! She shouted and the fight was on!

After many MANY deaths, Faine and Fiorella felt that they had put us through enough and had us all gather around to wish our favorite Dark Lady a very happy birthday!

Overall a VERY fun Labor Day event! Thank you to EM's Faine and Fiorella for showing us a good time!

Have a Happy Labor Day Origin!

Goodman Memorial - Monday, September 5th 8:00 pm EST


I wish for one more day
Now that you're gone
To thank you
To spend one more hour with you
To be able to show you how much we miss you

Now that you're gone I wish for
One more hunting trip
One last rune book
One last time to say see you later
One last opportunity to wish you well

Wishing that it was only a dream
Not believing that only in my heart
Is where I can see you
It is so hard to realize
That this is now our reality

Now that you're gone together
We still treasure your memory
We are still inspired by your generosity & kindness
You will remain in our hearts
Till the day we are together again

In Loving Memory

Please join us on New Magincia Beach, Trammel, Atlantic Shard for a Memorial Service for our Dear Friend Goodman aka Frank Campbell.

There will be a Eulogy given this year by Queen Mum of Sonoma followed by Remembrances by his friends.

If you would like to speak more formally, please pm me.
