Storm Season Readiness

Strewn about the Five Provinces, pieces of vellum are found treated with oils to help protect the writing upon them from the endless rain that batters the lands.

The unsigned pieces of vellum all read the same:

The seas are tumultuous, the skies rage! Denizens of the Deep travel to lands far from their homes, and much, much stranger creatures attack from both above and below!

In such a time as this, one is served well to be armed with knowledge as much as steel. Truly, perhaps it is knowledge that is the key here, for who can ignore the connection to knowledge shared by the entire triad of Immortals related to the waters of our world? Perhaps Drogor's wrath is not only a destructive force against knowledge, but also an assault in retribution for acts carried out in ignorance -- a statement in response to those who do not know, and do not seek, to demonstrate real understanding of Him?

To this end, I say to all of you -- all of us -- prepare yourselves for the Storm! Arm yourselves with understanding! Seek shelter in knowledge! Find succor in informed action!


Below are some places to read up on background lore related to the ongoing events! Some of these are more directly applicable than others, but all give at least some insight into pieces of the story.

What Must Be Done

High Priestess,

I’ve done as you asked and waited until I was certain. He had mutilated himself in such ways as I never wish to see again. I will relay everything in full when we meet, but most disturbing and most of note was his mouth; carved into a hideous facsimile of that of a shark, his teeth filed to points.

Enclosed is what I presume was the last letter he had written. It was amongst his things hidden within a nearby lean-to.

I am sorry.



The watery creature came again last evening, and most of the others fled soon after. I do not blame them. There is no succor. He is everywhere. We were fools to think Him only interested in the oceans, fools to not spill blood and prostrate ourselves immediately.

The current storm rages outside of my makeshift shelter as I write this to you. I have been following them as I promised you I would, led by the portents thrust upon us all. My remaining traveling companion assures me that his foresight shows this place to be safe for the coming anlaen, but my heart holds fear none the less. Powerful though the Mage may be, I cannot help but notice that he falters in his readings now, too, just a hint of hesitation where once there was naught but stolid certainty. I would not be surprised should I awaken in the morning to find him gone as well.

There is a jar of holy water that I keep with me always. I added the fish eyes to it, the ones spewed from the gullets of the Drowned Ones, those first of His creatures to come upon our shores in warning. I originally thought of this as a talisman of sorts, some meager protection against the storms’ fury. I think now, though, that it was always something else. Something more. The waters are watching, ever watching. Maybe it is not the storms we should be worried about.

I had the dream again -- the ship upon the churning sea, faced by an enormous eel. I feel that I know now what it means.
I understand that you grow tired of my tone in these missives. Do not think that the courier inadequately relayed your last response, for the woman made your intent very clear, but the signs are undeniable. Our refusal to bend will only prolong and intensify the suffering of all beings. The masses must know, Tallis, they must prepare. Sacrifices must be made!

My soul screams for me to begin with the village below. A flood would be most fitting, but with the elementalists gone, I would have to make do with what I have on hand. These compulsions come ever more frequently now, and I am no longer sure that fighting them is the righteous path. Perhaps this is the truth. Perhaps this is my calling.

Hail Lord Drogor!

A Private Session with the Witch

Tired of the long lines? Want to skip the middle men? Do you want to be one of the chosen few? Keishalae is happy to oblige!

This very limited offer will allow you a single 15-minute session with The Witch to personally create one design at no in-game cost. These sessions will be scheduled in advance from 10am - 7pm (Eastern, of course!). There will be some built-in breaks for Keishalae to rest and reign in her urges to explode your heads. We make no promises in regards to your health and safety.

[The OOC details: The work done in these sessions will NOT count against your festival total! Keishalae's normal alteration rules DO apply. This is a convenience offer for players who do not have the time to sit and wait on the chance to be picked from a list.]
