272 - Susa, Lakshmi, Chroma - The First Parade burns their trireme, as a statement of protest it would appear. They head for Fibreslay.

Sally gets the attention of the chief, who was expecting the Parade, and they are invited to meet with him. The owner of the inn they are staying at gives Susa some human clothing - they appear to have deeper meaning to Susa. The chief is very happy to meet them all.

Though the Vicegerent's arguements are not persuaded, Violene points out some of Jvan's horrific acts. Teknall admits that Jvan needs some 'talking to'. Violence is reasonably outraged at the double-standard. The Vicegerent dismisses Violence's arguments and goes on a philosophical tangent, destroying his credibility or potential for persuading the others. Brown interferes, shouts, gives them all a telling-off, before unbinding Violence and healing him. Brown then leaves. The Vicegerent attempts to separate the belligerents by teleporting Violence away. Yang'Ze gets in the way however. They prepare to fight, and Belruarc is teleported away.

Meanwhile on the Diaphanes front, the raids, while still short and limited to fairly isolated locations, have increased in frequency and the change eaters have destroyed at least one boat full of Lifprasilians. In Lex, a new species, dubbed sweethearts, has appeared. They're very fast, sapient (though not as intelligent as most mortal species), and their bodies produce an Other-substance that young change eaters find addictive. To hunt these, they need to do so in a faster, more organised fashion. Meanwhile, Heartworm learns of Vetros' existence due to the combination of two sculptors. - Jvan: -1 Free Point spent to teach the entropites more advanced aerial manoeuvres.

After a tense conversation with Vowzra, it is revealed that the Codex has become the Godkiller and is no longer on Chronos. It can now only be in the possession of mortals, divines who approach or possess it are instantly destroyed. The mortal in question is in all ways invulnerable to divine assaults or manipulations.

278 - Astarte, Jvan - Big rocks a dress. And he looks good. He's become so big now that Astarte can no longer wrap her hands around him - so he tries to be less big. By becoming lean and muscular. Jvan contacts Astarte through a messenger. She had wanted to apologise for last time. She tells Astarte about her new boyfriend, Amartía. She offers to show Astarte her 'garden'. In space. Astarte and Big go there, Big being altered with magic to ensure his survival. Astarte admires it. She then gets sad because she does not think she can do things like this. Jvan comforts her. She realises that Astarte is broken-hearted. She tries to tell Astarte who she is. She is slightly successful. Astarte asks what the important thing Jvan wanted to talk to her about is. It's Slough and Vowzra's trapping her. Jvan had thought Slough forever trapped, but reveals that the Life Goddess had managed to escape 'Vowzra's trap'. But Jvan is worried about her still. She tells Astarte not to worry and to work on fixing herself. - Astarte: -1 Might toimbue Big with capacity to survive in space. Jvan: No Might.
279 - Astarte, Amartía - Big is kidnapped by Sin. Astarte is then called forth and blackmailed into giving Sin what he wants - a magic he calls the '5th Element'. He is excessively cruel to her, utterly breaking her confidence and self-esteem. Weeping, she gives into his demands. - No Might.

He comes to the altar at which Primus had aforetime spoken to Zephyrion. There, Akthanos speaks to Zephyrions who reprimands him for not coming sooner. He creates for Akthanos a mighty sceptre - the King's Law. In the Celestial Citadel, Ventus reprimands Zephyrion for giving such a powerful weapon to mortals.

281 - Vowzra, the Bard, Amartía - Vowzra detects Sin and gets premonitions about him.

285 - Susa, Lakshmi, Chroma - The Parade moves towards Barbahar. They were tasked by the Fibreslay chief of exporting their tribal Fibreslay play.

Sally then explores some caves in the area which are apparently of strategic and artistic significance. Chroma stalks him as he draws in one of the caves. She then bumps into Susa and has a small talk with her. Chroma reveals she is from another world. Susa is spooked. - No Might.
286 - Ull'Yang, Luna - With their tour over, Ull'Yang and Luna sit and speak. Luna sadly notes that there are no intelligent creatures in Cygnea.

287 - Teknall, Conata, Kinesis - Teknall take his children on a world tour. They see: the Fractal Sea and Jvan, 'the engineer of flesh'. Conata is at peace with this idea, but Kinesis is rather unsettled. They see the Sparkling Sea and Teknall tells them of the haughty but amicable Zephyrion. They see the Firewind and the beginnings of civilisation there. They see the Venomweald and Teknall warns them about it. Conata takes heed, but Kinesis appears intrigued. They see the ogres living not too far from the Venomweald. They see the Changing Planes and Teknall talks of the evil Vestec. The girls are surprised and saddened to learn of evil gods existing. They see Grot's massive lake-sized footsteps. They see the Deepwoods and are told about the tragic Slough. They explore the woods for some time. They see the brush beasts in the Gilt Savannah. They see there a hain village and Toun is mentioned. Kinesis senses the slightet disapproval towards Toun in Teknall's voice. They see the Darkened Spires, created by the vanished Julkolfyr. They see the moons and mention is made of Vulamera and how she gifted each one to a god - such as Kyre the good man. Mention is made of Vestec's destruction of Lex, the inflexible Logos' moon, and Vowzra's intervention. They see the White Ocean and Cornerstone, and are told about the unattainable nature of Toun's perfectionist tendencies. Teknall proudly shows them the Ironheart Ranges. They see Mount Bormahven and are told about the honourable and true Ull'Yang and Yang'Ze. They see the Hilt. They see the Valley of Peace and are told about the kind, caring, but overzealous Niciel. Teknall notices some things in the north and reports them to the girls, and tells them about the mysterious, Logos-like Vowzra. They don't like him much. They see the Angels. Thye see humans. They see the Urtelem, created to counteract things like Ashlings. They see clashing storm djinnis. They see Xerxes, and Teknall is surprised but its existence, and indignant at not being involved in building it. He senses Sin also. They visit Shalanoir and are told about Phantasmagoria. They see a tribe of Quara Korala. They see Alefpria and are told about the Lifprasillians and the peculiar, ambitious, but benevolent and noble Lifprasil. They visit a Rovaick settlement in the southern Ironheart Ranges. It appears that they are here so Conata can teach the Rovaick metal making. She gets overexcited and scares everyone away. They come back after a bit. She makes a metal hammer for them and they get excited. Conata makes hammers for them all! Teknall comes back and tells Conata that she needs to teach, not just make. Eventually, Teknall takes Conata to a tedar family, Choukkud and Wutni, with whom Conata is to stay. The purpose of this, it appears, is to learn kindness. Both Kinesis and Teknall are clearly distraught at this separation, but they face it bravely nevertheless. Awakening in the morning, Conata has only the vaguest memory of the previous day - she greets Choukkud as her father. - No Might.
288 - Allure, Lifprasil - Allure dances with his naginata. He thinks of the futility of it all. Lifprasil comes along and asks Allure if he loves Alefpria and would give his life for it. Allure says he loves beauty and would run away if faced with impossible odds. He would die only for beauty. Lifprasil reveals that Notte is cursed and cannot love Allure, but offers to lift the curse if Allure would teach his soldiers how to use the naginata. - No Might.
289 - Jvan, Urtelem and Hain NPCs, Flux, Yulosi - Nimble teaches the Urtelem about the calendar on the Purple Sands. They separate. Joy, an Urtelem, explores a lensling grove. It is located near some calendar stones. It is revealed that the Urtelem have developed a written langauge. Jorn is, to his dismay, brought back into undeath. He learns of Urtelem 'helping the dead to dream again'. He decides to seek them out. Help, the Sculptor-tedar, assists Jorn in his lensling implantation as he is taken in by an Urtelem herd. Flux and Yulosi discover an Urtelem-built bridge and send a vampire to investigate up ahead. They are suspicious of what would drive Urtelem to build. A wandering herd of Urtelem settles down near a hain village which has its own Urtelem herd. Information is exchanged and a lensling - likely Jorn - falls asleep nearby. The Urtelem are more organised and build things of no use to them but useful to others. The old herd eventually wanders away, while the new herd remains by the hain village. Decades later, Urtelem celebrate a new year. It is slightly dedicated to Jvan. - Jvan: -1 Free Point to create the Spiral Script, -1 Free Point for Urtelem adoption of calendar system, -1 Free Point to teach Urtelem how to cultivate lens groves, -1 Free Point to give advanced navigation to the Urtelem.

She kills an uncooperative Guardian of the Gate and seizes control of the Gate itself. Part of her enters Chronos, and she speaks to Vowzra for long. Vowzra grants her some of his 'Sight' that she may see truly, and after a brief tour into her memories her divine 'scent' is laced with Vowzra's. Her remains optimistic that she will develop into something better with Time. Unexpectedly, Jvan does not target Vowzra but his plane, opening the Gap portal and unleashing destruction onto it. Vowzra is shocked and angered by this. Jvan claims Chronos as hers. The two gods clash.Jvan detects Zephyrion and is worried about him. It appears he has been busy creating, and eventually manages to escape Chronos' destruction. Vowzra demands Jvan not harm Chronos. Jvan gives vague promises before escaping after launching Vowzra at the Gap, Vowzra accepts his Fate and chooses to personally slow the advance of the Gap into Chronos. After a struggle, he succumbs.

Turn Eight Edit
Page 15 continued Edit
291 - Turn 8.
292 - Toun - Toun is angry and tracks down Vowzra. He ignores signals from both Zephyrion and Jvan. Coming upon the destruction left behind by the clash of Jvan and Vowzra, he enters Chronos. Thinking Vowzra is still alive, he prepares to wreak vengeance on the god of Time. Discovering Vowzra's death, Toun is conflicted, but ultimately sad. He contacts all the gods and bids them convene. He creates the Oath of Stilldeath, a promise between gods to nevermore kill one another. As he waits on the others to come, he finds the Cube and it provides a distraction from his thoughts and sadness. He ignores the nearby Bard. - Toun: -1 Might to contact all the gods, -15 Might to create the Oath of Stilldeath [Calligraphy Domain adds approx. 5 Might more].
293 - Lifprasil - The demigod sits in silent contemplation, in a dreamlike state, thinkng of all that had come to pass. As he meditates, Toun's voice reaches him and he is somewhat saddened. He sends a prod back in response to Toun before composing himself and going to see what Allure is up to.
294 - Teknall - Teknall reflects. He reflects on the Aimless Time, Jvan and Vestec's scuffle, Niciel's attempt to heal Slough, and Vowzra's meddlesome ways. He reflects on the birth of Lazarus and notes Vowzra's presence there as well as Sin's. He takes the Gap-cup which held the Gap-soul and incases it in lead for future study. He reflects on feeling Reathos' death, and is saddened by it. He believes Reathos was ultimately a 'good and professional' god. Heis surprised that the Universe is not as affected by Reathos' death as it was by Slough's and investigates. He discovers that Reathos has cleverly created a self-sustaining system using a Wraith Stone. Teknall repairs its guardian. He reflects on the vial of magic Astarte gave him, and on the need to discern the fundamental components of objects - for which he would need the Codex of Creation. He tracked down Vulamera to Cogitare and discovered the scene of her 'death'. He meditates there and comes to the conclusion that Vowzra did not kill Vulamera. He decides to talk with the god of Time. He reflects on Zephyrion's disappearance - it had an air of judgement about it. He reflects on how Jvan got to Vowzra before him, destroying the Solitary Mount. He sensed Vowzra's death and saw Jvan bring New Chronos into the Universe, separatd from it by a barrier of hyperbolic space. He regrets not talking to Jvan sooner, but concludes that nothing he could have done would have prevented this eventuality. While Vowzra was conceited and self-important, the death of so many gods still makes Teknall sad, and this makes getting the answers he seeks harder. At the Oath of Stilldeath, Teknall weeps. He signs and strengthens the Oath. He goes to toun and the Cube and realises all the answer lie in the Cube - if it could be deciphered. He notes the presence of the Bard, as well as that of Sin within the Cube. - Teknall: -3 Might to strengthen the Oath of Stilldeath [would now take approx. 25 Might to break].
295 - Astarte, Brown - A depressed Astarte, hiding in a cave, is bullied by Brown into going and signing the Oath of Stilldeath. She goes reluctantly and realises that she will die. It depresses her tremendously. She signs the Oath, but not in a way detectable to any human, it is not physical. She also imbues the Oath with a certain degree of desperation and helplessness - a secret cry for help. She enters Chronos and sits alone. - No Might.
296 - Niciel, Falas, Loth, Lifprasil - Backtrack to after the Grot bbattle, Falas contemplates how best to thank Lifprasil, when Loth returns. Lifprasil meets with Niciel. He offers friendship and access for his people to the Valley. Niciel accepts but suggests he confirm with Falas. Lifprasil speaks with Falas, who is somewhat surprised at Lifprasil touching her, when Loth introduces himself. They talk about Lifprasil's origins when Falas gets the conversation back on topic. Lifprasil offers an alliance. Falas accepts. - No Might.
297 - Ommok - The great ogre feasts on a deer he fells with his sling. He sees smoke in the disance and thinks it's a fire djinni. He avoids it. He crosses a hain and notes its bow. He follows it and realises the fire djinn is no dire djinn but a hain settlement - they have harvested fire! The villagers attack him with their bows, but do no damage. They realise he means no harm and he dwells with them for a while, learning what he can, before leaving to continue his journey. Hain villages in the region grow to expect him and he stays with a few as he continues his journey. Eventually he enters Vetruvian territory. He stays with them longer but eventually journeys across the Firewind. It is difficult, and he eventually reaches the resort. He crosses the Changing Planes and eventually comes to the Deepwoods. He arrives at the clearing where Astarte's stone had been shattered, and he notes the massive trees - it confuses him that the ones that were destroyed had so quickly grown back into these monumental things again. He is further confused to find only one Astartian rock of significant size left - when he remembered there being many. He takes the rock and, after days of contemplation, sets off home.
298 - Ull'Yang, Luna - Ull'Yang now lives in the upturned inside of a mountain peak. Luna returns from hunting and questions him about the other gods. Ull'Yang realises that Cyngea's barrier has been preventing other gods and his avatar from contacting him. He fixes the issue and is flooded with information. The deaths of his siblings affects him very badly. He is conflicted and saddened, burdened by this development and angry towards the Primordials. But rather than breakdown, Ull'Yang laughs. Ull'Yang then goes through a very painful process of refining his core so as to give him freedom of movement. This inadvertently brings forward his supernova stage. Creating the golems Mundo and Odnum to protect Cygnea, he and Luna then leave for Galbar. Weeping before the Oath of Stilldeath, he enters Chronos without signing it. Entering it, Ull'Yang is surprised at the difference in time flow within Chronos and declares that he misjudged Vowzra and would endeavour to finish what the god of Time had started. He sends Luna away and avoids the others. Then, his fifth cycle begins and he retracts into his core, which dims and enters a nearby boulder. - Ull'Yang: -2 Might to create Mundo and Odnum, -6 Might to level up to level 5, -30 Might to refine his core and gain free movement, -1 Might to induce a supernova.
299 - Toun - Toun continues inspecting the Cube to distract from his misery. He is annoyed at Chronos' time warping. When Teknall arrives (at long last), Toun reacts with hollowly to the news of more deaths. He thinks the Cube is useless, another cruel game of Vowzra's. He thinks Lifprasil's prod is Vestec playing at being Vulamera and ignores it. He is surprised when Teknall notes that Sin is within the Cube, and embarrased for not noticing. He waves the Cube aside as nothing but a prison and moves away. His eyes fall on Astarte and he lashes out against her with cruel words. - No Might.
Page 16 Edit
300 - Vestec - Vestec is grounded by the momentary chaos caused in the Universe by Vowzra's death. He is surprised to learn of Vulamera's death, but does not belive Vowzra killed her. He discovers that the Venomweald Writh is dead and is crestfallen. He goes to Chronos and gives Toun and Teknall a telling off, and reprimands them for ignoring Jvan's actions. He explains why and how Reathos died. He pledges to sign the Oath of Stilldeath once the others have. That done, he extends a hand to Astarte and tells her to come have fun exploring with him. - No Might.
301 - Logos, Elysium - Looking into the Waters of Nyneve, Logos sees an apparition - Vowzra. The apparition is silent and Logos saddened greatly to learn of Vowzra's demise. They stand one beside the other for a while, until Logos rises from the pool. He meets with Elysium and they agree to visit the village Elysium visited last. They converse and he asks if she thinks he is perfect. She says no. He asks if she fears him - he can unmake her. She is uncertain. She tells him to ask for help if he needs it. He lies, answering in the affirmative. Elysium visits the village and finds the boy again. He is ill and weak, and it is clear he and his vilage will perish. She warms him and heals him, and he begs her to save the village. Logos asks her what her choice will be - would she maintain her distance with him or choose the humans. She chooses the humans. Logos approves, telling her she now understands her position in his Natural Order. She wamrs the village and makes it bloom. The villagers praise her and bow. Knowing now is the time to strike, now that Vowzra is dead, he reforges his sword, Singularity, and calls forth one third of his Realta in preparation for the coming slaughter. - Logos: -26 Might to level up to level 7, -10 Might to reforge Singularity, -1 Might to create an Avatar to watch over Elysium, -1 Might to open Ilunabar's Galbar-Arcon portal.
302 - Astarte - Just before she can response, Vestec comes and speaks for Astarte. It makes her feel even worse about herself. She does not take Vestec's outstretched hand, but decides to go with him anyway - if only to get away from Brown for a while. - No Might.
303 - Brown, Belvast - Brown is on the prowl. She scares a travelling boy, and demands to know if she's on the way to the Valley of Peace. He confirms she is and she disappears before he can ask for water. He finds she left him a bowl of water as he continues his journey. She finds Belvast in a pub with his loot. She smashes a plate on a courageous lecher's head as she heads for Belvast. She says she needs his help and they go off to a cave. She tells him she needs advice on how to cheer Astarte up - and as Belvast was a lover of travel (like Astarte was), he would know. She reveals that Vowzra died. Belvast breaks down. Brown throws him a ball of yarn to calm him down. He grabs it, but keeps sobbing. Brown hugs him and that helps, some two days later, to calm Belvast down. She then reveals that Astarte is said due to Sin kidnapping Big, and that they don't know where Big is. He promises to help. Brown smothers him, giving in to her Astartian urges. They ponder how best to cheer up Astarte, and Belvast reveals his book of pressed flowers. He gifts it to Brown, and she is very pleased. As she leaves, she tells Belvast to call on her if he ever needs anything. - Brown: -1 Free Point to teleport from the cave.
304 - Teknall - Teknall pulls Toun away from Astarte and reprimands him for his insensitivity. He does not respond to Vestec's accusations, but acknowledges the truth in them. He also does not reject Vestec's version of what happened with Reathos, reasoning that it makes sense and that, either way, the Cube will reveal all. Once they could translate it. - No Might.
305 - Heartworm - Completing its exploration of the Submaterium, Heartworm arrives at Mammon's throne room - it is empty, as Vestec beat it there. It pledges to take up Mammon's role. Heartworm has built a new vessel for itself. Within it, it travels to Mirus. It claims it for its own. In Mirus, a new Submaterium emerges, connected to the one on Galbar. It is occupied by strange, very resilient, wyrms. They appear to have been created (or modified) by Heartworm. This place is its new labaratory. With Zephyrion banished, it appears that Jvan plans the final victory of her space-dwelling change-eaters against the djinnis. Heartworm is uninterested. It visits Vetros and experiments horrifically on some of its unwilling citizens. It leaves a gruesome mural and a shattered but yet living guard in the Vetros square for all to see when the sun rises. Heartworm takes note of Toun's oath - no killing. For Jvan and it, that was perfectly reasonable. They did not kill after all. Anything short of it, but killing was an abnormality. Vowzra's death means one threat is gone - even if potential samples also are. Moreover, Jvan's weakness means it is now virtually free. It follows Toun's trail to Cogitare and discovers Vakarlon. He reveals to Heartworm his story and that Serandor is within him. Heartworm offers to destroy Vakarlon's mind - wherein is Serandor - while preserving Vakarlon's physical manifestation. The two, it is implied, leave for Mirus. - No Might.
306 - Lazarus, Minus - Lazarus is somewhat maddened. Is worried about his weakness and is paranoid. Decides he cannot trust anyone but himself, but is lonely, and so needs to split his soul so that there is someone else he can trust completely and who will keep him company. He calls out to Minus. He demands a new body and gives his specifications - it is to be a combination of flesh and robotics. What Minus creates is a strange, mechanical, bird-like creature. It is biologically female. Lazarus' soul is transferred into its new vessel and the old body is taken away by Minus. - Toun: -1 Free Point to create new body. Lazarus: -4 Might to level up.
307 - Gerrick Far-Teacher - Chronologically after the village battle. Gerrick travels learning and teaching. He teaches Wind Striker's arts of war. He heads for places he saw during the Phantasmagoria. He heads for Grinder's village, the greedy bread-maker, and soon receives an invitation to the hain's home. He converses with the greedy hain and eventually asks for the secret of breadmaking. Grinder refuses to give it, and Gerrik censures him before departing. He takes with him the secrets of breadmaking, having discovered it through his perception. He spreads it far and wide. - Gerrick: -2 Khookies to teach arts of war, -2 Khookies to spread Phantasmagoria knowledge, -2 Khookies to learn and teach breadmaking.
308 - Lakshmi, Susa, Chroma - The First Parade continues its journey, this time battling through thick jungle. Chroma's fighting style and lack of mercy scares and worries Sally. They soon arrive at the village called Susa - named after the huntress. They idolise her there, and to her discomfort a highly militaries 'guild' of sorts called the Hunters has been formed there in her honour. Susa wishes to change the conformist ways of the locals, and Sally needs to teach them mapmaking. They don't take up mapmaking as well as Sally wished. He goes to talk to Susa, but she promises to talk with him after showing Lakshmi and Chroma a pond. - Chroma: -28 Khookies to level up to level 6. Susa: -11 Khookies to level up to level 4, -10 to establish holy order the Wanderers in Susa. Lakshmi: ?
309 - Toun - Toun catches himself just as he is about to strike Teknall. Embarrassed, he considers maintaining his fury just to save face. Vestec saves him from having to make that choice by showing up and taunting. Ignoring Vestec for the most part, he goes to check the Oath of Stilldeath for Astarte's signature. He notes Ull'Yang's presence but does not disturb him. He sees Astarte has signed, and that Ull'Yang has not. He apologises to Astarte before turning on Vestec and tellng him to 'ebb'. - No Might.
310 - Slough - The Mahd gushes with new found and even greater life than before as Slough journeys down it. Soon, travelling from the Mahd, she finds Esau once more. For the first time, Slough speaks, showing signs of sentience following her resurrection in Vowzra's coccoon. Esau follows her. Slough collects more souls: the brave soul of a malevolent maiden, the proud soul of a crystalline dragon, the brave soul of a skybound sympathizer, the vast soul of a starlight scientist, the brave soul of a charismatic warhound. One of the graves, however, is already empty. This angers Slough and she says that what is the 'Great One's' must return to him. They journey to the sea where Esau is told to stay on land. Slough leaps and her body is shattered, but reforms swiftly. She dives into the sea, and ignores - even scorns - Toun's message. It is clear she will not sign the Oath of Stilldeath. She comes face to face with a giant monstrosity - her first Mistake. It appears that her new body, unlike the old, is destructible. - Slough: -1 Free Point to restore Esau, -1 Free Point to recover the souls near the Deadwood Sepulchre, -1 Might to improve cognitive and communicative abilities, -1 Might to manifest ultra-fast regeneration.
311 - Logos - What appear to be stars descend from the heavens. The Realta invasion has begun, and the Amestrian city of Talos disintegrates before Realta plasma fire. The Realta burn and destroy, seeking out Jvan's creations. Logos watches coldly from outer space. He lands in the Firewind. A Sculptor attacks him with an ivory knife. He comes to the ash-strewn Mahd. The Sculptor continues its crazed attack and is vapourised. He plants a crystal flower, the Acalya. It multiplies and swiftly grows. It releases its spores and begins its deadly spread. - Logos: -2 Might to quicken the spread of the Acalya.
312 - Niciel - The Angels pray after the battle and Niciel realises she has great potential. Wishing to aid Galbar, she creates Whiteberry Bushes, the Spring of Health, and the Spirit Doves. Then her inspiration fizzles and she realises she has limited imagination. She sends out her wisps to gather things so as to inspire her. Toun's message reaches her. She is saddened at Vulamera's death, less so at Vowzra's. She journeys to the Oath of Stilldeath where she tells everyone not to fight. Then she senses Logos. - Niciel: -2 Might to create Whiteberry Bushes, the Spring of Health, and the Spirit Doves.
313 - Teknall - Teknall, as everyone leaves, decides to approach the Bard. He asks him if he can read the Cube for him, but the Bard responds by reprimanding Teknall for not taking heed before Vowzra was murdered. Teknall attempts using verse to sway the Bard, but is ultimately unsuccessful. The Bard informs him that the Cube is for higher purposes; if he simply wanted information about Vulamera and the Codex he could go to Lifprasil. Satisifed, Teknall departs. - No Might.
314 - Vestec, Ilunabar, Maeus - Ilunabar has a premonition about Logos due to Vowzra's contributions to Raka, and decides she needs to protect herself. Harvesting aurora ice and dreams, eldritch fruits from Julia Island, Raka dreams, and her own blood, she creates an inebriating drink to trap Logos. Vestec arrives and drinks it, then reveals that Julkolfyr is trapped in his Realm of Darkness. After talking, they decide to head to the Darkened Spires which, it transpires, are infested by Julkolfyr's creations. Ilunabar commands Notte to clear the place out and claims it hers. She shows Vestec her Dreamweaver and offers him the chance to play it. He plays it rather well. The barrier between Raka and Reality melts somewhat as he plays causing oddities. When Ilunabar takes a proper look at Vestec, she realises that the drink has impregnated him. He decides to gather all technologies and spreads them to all sentient beings on Galbar - metal making, horse riding, leather armour, weapon making, arts of war, bread making and so on. Maeus is then born. Vestec then awakens from his drunken state and realises what happened. Maeus wants drink and is rather grumpy until Notte brings him a few bottles. He downs them. They then detect Logos and very swiftly make a run for it. - No Might (?).
315 - Vizier Ventus, Luna, Elemental NPCs - Luna appears on Galbar. She is at first anxious due to not being near Ull'Yang, but the message he left in her mind calms her down. She walks away from the North in obedience to his command not to enter or near the Gate Unguarded. Cyclonis, a wind djinni, notices her and follows her with his minions. Luna continues towards the Ironheart Ranges, though she feels she is being followed. Cyclonis soon introduces himself and they converse. They inform her of Zephyrion's banishment and wanr her about Jvan. They have not, to Luna's indignation, heard of Ull'Yang. They tell her Jvan is the one who killed Vowzra, and tell her of Murmur and Basheer's anti-Jvanic crusade. She learns of Vizier Ventus and demands to meet him on the basis that she can secure Ull'Yang's support for the djinnis against Jvan. Meeting Ventus, they converse tensely for a while. She tells him of the Oath of Silldeath, but does not tell him about her quest to find the Sunderer. Ventus refuses to help her due to her lack of frankness, and eventually puts her down in the fertile Mahd river valley. He orders a Skylord to follow her.
316 - Vowzra's Victors NPCs - Morarom Oramomaro sits upon a rock and tells the inhabitants of New Chronos the tale of the Cherry Tree.
317 - Teknall, Goliath - Teknall is shocked at the terrible descent of the Realta. Retreating with Goliath to his workshop, he prepares for war. He reforges his hammer and creates Mirror Armour for himself and Goliath. He arms Goliath and himself with railguns. Returning to Galbar, whose inhabitants are being ravaged by the Realta, Teknall and Goliath set to work. They work at lightning speed. A Realta is blown apart and Teknall disappears. Reappearing near a hain village whose inhabitants and mural structures are being indiscriminately destroyed by a Realta, Teknall destroys the creature. Elsewhere a Sculptor struggles for survival against a Realta, protected by Needle Fae. Teknall appears suddenly and disappears, leaving behind a crushed and broken Realta. On the shores of Amestris, the Sirenian Fiberlings are targetted by a Realta, which swiftly falls prey to Goliath. Its plasma blasts are deflected by the Mirror Armour. Destroyed, the Realta falls into the ocean. A Rovaick village under attack prays to Toun, Ilunabar, Vulamera, Teknall, Belruarc, Astarte, Mammon, and even Vestec for help. Teknall responds. - Teknall: -1 Might to create two Railguns for Goliath, -2 Might to create Mirror Armour for Goliath, -1 Might to upgrade Goliath's jetpack and aerodynamics, -2 Might to create Railgun for Teknall, -2 Might to create Mirror Armour for Teknall, -1 Might to reforge the adamantine maul.
318 - Heartworm, Tauga - Help watches in horror as the Realta attack, looking for Nimble. Tauga is with here and is in a strange state. Heartworm arrives, offering safety. Tauga refuses at first but appears to change her mind. Heartworm gathers some Urtelem, Flickers, and the Angel who befriended Violet, creating from them the Bludgeons. Help, now in the Mirus Submaterium, carries a weak Tauga. Tauga later reappears on Galbar, much changed. She has undergone modification, becoming a Hero. Above her are Bludgeons, in her hand a sword, and some kind of strange Jvanic flying suit surrounds her. She cannot feel much anymore. Her family, it appears, are dead. She can ride the Bludgeons. A Realta appears and targets her. The fight begins. - Heartworm: -3 Might to create twenty Bludgeons, -1 Might to create Tauga into a Hero.
319 [cf. 323] - Amartía - Sin escapes the Cube - it is unclear, but it appears that he destroys it. He finds a cave within which are spiders. [Per 323, everything from this point is a dream]. They attack him and a battle ensues. He kills their queen and takes control over them before leaving. Finding some Vowzra's Victors, he takes control over a few hundred of them before leaving Chronos altogether. The ease of it all confuses him. He finds himself in a white wilderness. He feels something has 'defiantly' changed. - No Might.
Page 17 Edit
320 - Conata, Majus - Conata's time to sign the Oath of Sularn has come. Choukkud talks with another tedar who notes that Conata is not human is is likely not accepted by the others. Choukkud insists she is. Time passes. Conata and some goblins burn clay to make the forge's fire hotter. Some trolls bully and mock her. Time passes. Her goblin frinds, Olub and Bogg, bring her White Giant bone - called alum nayam in the hain tongue. When they leave, Conata is sad. Many of her goblin friends have died or gotten married. She knows she is neither Rovaick nor human, hated and despised by all. Wutni comforts her. Time passes. She is now fourteen. She meets the azibo siblings Ruvac and Polia, and their friend Gio. They are magic scholars. Conata shows them to the Ritual Chamber. A friendship appears to bloom. Times passes. Working on a spear to help a tedar family, Conata is approached by Choukkud. Her can tell she is troubled. She asks where is truly from. She tells him of a dream she is having constantly wherein she is young and flying with two others. The dreams feels like home, but when she awakens she cannot remember the faces of the other two. Choukkud tells her and to keep him and Wutni informed about the dreams. He notes that she is making the spear out of kindness, and prmises to tell her the truth when she becomes seventeen. A year passes. Conata sits talking with Polia about travelling. They see some shooting stars. They are not shooting stars. The things destroy a hain village. One heads towards the girls and the Rovaick settlement. The goblins think the world is ending. Everyone runs for the safety of the cave as the Rovaick guards try to protect everyone. It is futile. Everything burns. A Reakta enters the cave and is about to attack Conata. Conata realises it has metal wings. She causes them to bend around it, but the Realta rips through them and prepares to attack again. A giant being saves Conata. It identifies itself as Majus. It reveals to her that she is a demigoddess and that he and her father have destroyed the other Realta. Walking behind Majus, she sees the survivors. It is horrific. Olub lies dead in Bogg's arms. She weeps in Choukkud and Wutni's arms. - No Might.
321 - Lifprasil, Belvast, Falas, Loth - Lifprasil returns to Alefpria with his soldiers, and with Angels. Falas is amazed, as too are the other Angels. The parade through the city, Lifprasil on Oevadia. Falas and the other Angels are staying with Lifprasil in the palace. Elsewhere, Oevadia had been released and was patrolling. Three Realta attack it, and it escapes back to Alefpria, dragging what was now eight Realta behind it. Spotting this oddity, Alefpria's guards inform their commander, Pingertian, and he gives swift orders to gather troops. Pingertian attempts to speak to the Realta, but they attack and ravage his troops. Decimated and on the verge of defeat, the remaining soldiers are saved by a portal opening and dragging them away. A smaller portal opens behind one of the Realta and an arrow is shot into its neck at extreme velocity. Getting the soldiers to safety, Belvast decides it is time to test his sword practice on the Realta, and attacks. Gestun, an officer, and two others are sent by Pingertian to help him. The Realta have wreaked havoc in Alefpria by this point. Falas, Loth, and Lifprasil arrive. With the Realta destroyed, Lifprasil realises he needs more powerful soldiers. Belvast meanwhile notes that the Sertzstone had warned him of the approaching Realta. He thinks it is time to visit his father's grave. Jvan, Vestec, Astarte, Niciel, and Ilunabar are called upon to help create Alefpria's new soldiers. - No Might.
322 - Heartworm, Vestec, Vakarlon - Heartworm observes the Diaphanes and the Arks. They would soon be numerous enough to be unleashed on Galbar's djinnis. Heartworm attack Father Dominus and harvests some of its tissues. The attack inadvertently saves some djinnis, it appears. Next it manages to harvest tissues from Mother Suprema also, and its Sweetheart crew, before making an extremely swift and lucky escape through a temporary portal. Later, Vestec 'finds' Heartworm. It transpires that Heartworm had signalled him. Vestec offers to protect Heartworm from the Realta and Logos. Heartworm makes him swear by Amul'Sharar to protect Heartworm, its creations, and its labratory. Heartworm attempts to get him to tell it of Mammon's location also, but he demands payment: Arcon's location. Heartworm, though regretful, agrees to this. Vestec then shows Heartworm the Realm of Madness and it praises what Mammon has created - Vestec points out that the place is his creation. A reluctant Heartworm then reveals the location of Arcon. The location of Heartworm's labratory is also shown to Vestec, and he is given a piece of wood so he can track Heartworm whenever needed. Heartworm then goes through some sacrifice rituals, wherein it sacrifices the vessel created for itself earlier. A demon is summoned which it then takes with it to Mirus. It becomes apparent that all previous activity in the labratory was geared towards the ultimate goal of creating arksynth - a substance that can be manipulated by mortals to produce organic materials and devices at about the same rate that conventional technology can be advanced, given the same level of time and resources. Vakarlon attempts to contribute, but realises that he is nothing but a resource to Heartworm. He settles for silently adjusting and tweaking things more to his liking. Ninety-seven Sculptors, mental link with Jvan severed, work in the labratory, along with four hundred Sweethearts. Achieving unpredictability appears to be a goal for Heartworm, and the Sculptors are given increasing, then complete, experimental freedom. Examples of things created include a prosthetic shoulder for miners whose arms had been stunted by childhood labour. Vakarlon leave some final requests before being fused wiht the arksynth. Serandor unsuccessfully attempts and escape, and the fusion is complete. Vakarlon is no more. He is the ghost in the machine. - Heartworm: -1 Might to increase Concealment, -1 Free Point to communicate with the Realm of Madness, -1 Might to fuse Vakarlon with the arksynth. Vestec: -1 Might to pledge to protect Heartworm.
323 [cf. 319] - Vowzra's Victors NPCs - The tale of Sin's escape from Chronos. It transpires that he was knocked unconscious by Chronos itself for attempting to attack the spider queen. Thirty spiders carry him away, but are changed by being so close to him. Some Victors, angry at Vowzra's death, seek to strike out against Jvan. Mora refuses to grant their wish and, eventually, they follow Sin in the hopes of gaining the chance to do so. - No Might.
323 - Luna, Ommok - The djinnis drop Luna in the Firewind desert, near the Mahd. A Rukban warband attempts to capture her. Luna scares them off by transforming into something akin to a werewolf - more than she already is. She journeys out of the Firetooth and detects Yang'Ze's weapon in the Venomweald, which she then begins tracking down. Ommok is also tracking it down. Ommok arrives at the cave first and finds himself too large to get all the way inside. When Luna arrives, he knocks her unconscious and, assaulting her mind, forces her to go into the cave's bowels so as to retrieve Sunderer. Synnefos, a wind elemental, had been tracking Luna. It fled to tell Ventus when Luna was knocked out. Luna eventually gets to where a dormant Yang'Ze is, Sunderer floating up above him. Ommok is disappointed and makes her hit the sleeping demigod. She does. - No Khookies spent.
324 - Gerrick, Susa, the Grand Parade - Gerrick gathers information on 'fiberheads' from fellow hain. He travels to the village of Susa. On arrival, he asks to see Susa. He meets Susa and others members of the Grand Parade. Susa teaches him how to make leather. In return, he shows Susa and the others how to make bread. He learns more about the Grand Parade and Lakshmi tells him about Lifrapsillians and Alefpria. Intrigued by her clothes, he resolves to visit Alefpria some day. The next day, Gerrik departs for Fiberslay. - No Might or Khookies spent.
325 - Amartia, NPC Corrupted Victors - Amartia continues his journey with his Victors and Spiders. The Victors appear weakened and hungry. He allows them to hunt and eat and walks off to think. He comes upon a human settlement. He makes a red serpent - 'The Serpent of the Void', 'The Solver' - and sends it into the village. It enters a hut and finds an angry man. It calms him down and speaks to him about his problems: he is an adventurer and his wife is not; he desires a fellow adventurer but the village elders refuse to allow it. The serpent tells the man the story of the man who ate from the forbidden tree and became a god. The man is thus persuaded to commit adultery with this adventuress. This appears to be the first such case ever. - 1 MP to create the Solver, 4 MP to get to level 3.
326 - Tauga, Heartworm - Tauga fights her third Realta and defeats it after a fierce battle. She learns that the Enas is dead from a rather hostile tedar herder couple. They believe the 'Purifiers' had come to rid Xerxes of all things Jvanic and Sinful. At their insistence, Tauga leaves - but scares their herd. She then stays with a shamaness who gives her wine. Tauga appears resistent to alcohol. Tauga's Bludgeon gets a power-up when Heartworm pays her a visit. It gives her a vial of Arksynth and a Sweetheart and bids her go to Xerxes. Tauga laughs for long as she realises that she is nothing more than Heartworm's pawn in all of this. - Tauga: 2 Khookies to level up.
327 - Tobias, Mika - Enter Tobias, Amartia's unsuspecting firstborn son. He remembers little of his past. He lives in the Venomweald with a hermit called Mika. Tobias has an interesting sword he keeps hidden which Mika, it transpires, knows about. They journey to a waterfall and train there with wooden swords, but the weather eventually forces them to return home. - Nothing spent.
328 - Susa, Lakshmi, Chroma, the Grand Parade - The Grand Parade continue their journey and arrive in Vascogne lands. They meet Marel, the foremost trader of the Vascognes - something of a queen. Her children are spoilt, it seems. Sally talks a great deal about harmony and annoys Marel. Marel and Susa talk in a grotto and get along. Marel has enough of Sally's harmony talk and punches him. He gives her a crown with a jewel which has a spirit in it. It is to tutor all future Vascogne kings and keep them on the 'right' path. - Ilunabar: 1 MP spent to create Hero [that is, the jewel in the crown].
329 - Diana - The tale begins with Zilévo lying under the moon, her brother Ira nearby. They converse for a while and Ira is suddenly killed. Diana, daughter of Amartia, awakens. As she makes her way through Xerxes, she notes that people are now buried rather than cremated due to the need for firewood. The old bathhouse is now a crumbling wreck used as an orphanage. Her "target" - though it is unclear if she is hired by someone or is simply a vigilante - is a rich merchant, whose home she swiftly infiltrates. After putting down a dog in the cellars, she finds the merchant in his study. She threatens him and insists that if he wants to be safe in his own home he would have to use his wealth for the people. A bodyguard arrives and a fight ensues. With some difficulty, Diana kills him. Her point is made and, robbing the place, she departs. She leaves a package full of valuables at the orphanage. - Nothing spent.
330 - Oradin-Thulemiz, Bjorn - Oradin-Thulemiz appears to have matured somewhat and is in the process of interrogating an undead man named Bjorn. After a brief altercation in which Bjorn's mouth is destroyed, Oradin-Thulemiz informs Bjorn that he will be keeping him until he could purify him. Healing him, they set out to subjugate Pack-Minds and Treeminds. He subjugates some thirty Pack-Minds by defeating their Alpha and declares himself the Great-Wolf. - Nothing spent.
331 - Ventus, Ilunabar, Teknall - The Vizier Ventus arrives at the Celestial Citadel in time to see Zephyrion banished by Fate and Amul'Sharar. The Citadel is flooded by confused djinnis. Ventus arrives to this, finding also that Ilunabar has sealed herself in her part of the Citadel. She permits Ventus enter, however. It appears Ilunabar is packing her belongings and preparing to leave the Citadel. Teknall arrives in goblin form to press his claim to the Citadel against the so-called claim of the djinnis. A bitter dispute ensues until Ilunabar intervenes. They arrive, eventually, at a temporary arrangement to share the Citadel. - Nothing spent.
332 - Vowzra's Victors NPCs - Old Mora tells the tale of how the Treeminds came to leave their homeland for New Chronos. After being kidnapped by Vestec, who placed chaotic inclinations within them, they were returned home - but found that they were now prey to new beings: Pack-Minds. Their holy mountain, the Solitary Mount, was then blown to smithereens. After yet another shock, the Treeminds appear to have descended into chaos and civil strife. Eventually, the coming of a horrific darkness drove them out of their warring and feuding, caused them to unite, and finally flee to New Chronos where they were cleansed of Vestec's influences. Mora mentions that the bears from whom Treeminds are descended are the ones who fathered Vowzra and Belruarc. Mora then mentions that the darkness that caused them to flee appeared to have power over the Pack-Minds and, not only that, brought the dead to life and used it in the onslaught. Its name - Oradin-Thulemiz. He ends with a warning to the inhabitants of New Chronos: stay in New Chronos' safety, do not venture beyond where monsters lie. - Nothing spent.
333 - Amartia, Logos - Amartia and the Victors watch the growth crystalline forests. Amartia is delighted. He ignores a Victor's warning not to enter, breaking her arm and going in. He realises it was a mistake. Logos finds him. Logos lays it out to Amartia - he knows Amartia's ultimate goal, to rule - to destroy everything, consume the Primordials. But Logos has no intention of destroying Amartia, seeing him as a valuable asset. Logos offers Amartia an opportunity to serve him, a covenant. Accepting it, Amartia is transformed into a handsome, regal man. He 'feels like a god'. Logos promises him that if he is faithful, he may well allow him to consume one the true gods so as to truly become one. Logos then gives Amartia a stone which grants power over Logos' laws. Amartia and the people of Xerexes are thus claimed by Logos; their role to destroy Jvanic beings. - Logos: 2 MP to level Amartia up, 2 MP to create Logos' second Avatar, 1 MP to create Stone.
334 (1) - Vestec, Tez - Bolar, a tedar, has taken control of the Horde and Tez, having had his arm destroyed during the battle, awaits death. Vestec visits him and gives him a new, metallic arm and bids him go destroy this Bolar and regain control of the Horde. After doing so, he thinks up a way to make the Horde faster and more mobile - Heraktati-riding goblins! - 1 MP to create Tez's Arm of Discord.
334 (2) - Vestec, Lazarus - Lazarus calls upon Vestec. She requests that he make Tez and the Horde guard the mountains surrounding her location, and mentions she wishes to evolve the Rovaick in her grasp into something more 'useful'. Vestec expresses interest in her ideas, but informs her Tez would never hang about doing nothing. She tells him to inform Tez that, if he stays put, she'll supply him with a second army before long. Vestec tells her she'll have to deal with Tez on her own, but more or less creates the new race, dwarves, for her. To protect her, he floods the entire south pole and creates a couple of islands there, destroying what Pronobii were left (the only remaining ones were those that went North, likely a reference to those in New Chronos). The largest of these islands is Reathos' enlarged corpse. All Pronobii souls, along with the soul of Reathos' Avatar and the Wraith Stone, are placed within and bound to the Reathos mountain. Returning to Lazarus, she requests Vestec take her to Tez. - Vestec: 1 MP to create Dwarves, 10 MP to create Reathos mountain Holy Site, 1 Freepoint to bind various souls to the Reathos mountain.
335 - Vestec, Lazarus, Tez - Tez is teleported before Lazarus and Vestec and, after realising Lazarus' intentions and refusing to bend the knee, is killed. Vestec places his soul in the Arm of Discord. Lazarus takes the Arm. Vestec creates a couple of thousand more dwarves for Lazarus, who then goes to convince the Horde to remain in place and defend the mountain passes. - 1 Freepoint.
