Raiders Restore Faith To Shard · on 2/20/2011 9:04:50 PM 311
The Idon Raiders have mostly been underground .... until now. They caught wind that shard had a vigil for the dark gods but happen to forget just one god..... Idon.

You stumble south, leading your group.
[Shard, West City Gates]
The sound of chanting voices carries over the Lake of Tears and past the West Gate. If the guards appear disturbed by the steady droning sound, they do not show it as they pace the wallwalks, eyes constantly scanning for any sign of danger in the night. You also see a Shard sentinel, a blue moonbeam, the Sentinel Kureta, a prominent warning sign and a ladder to the top of the wall.
Also here: Raider Zamn who is surrounded by a shimmering shield, Raider Hackett who is shrouded in ghostly flames, Raider Ogdaro who is surrounded by a shimmering shield, Death Dealer Zandrith who is shrouded in ghostly flames, Valoraen who is in a geometric azure cage, Trader Thug Hangren, Tourniquet Syllanthis and Kealitai who is shrouded in ghostly flames.
Obvious paths: north, east, south.

Your mind hears Ogdaro thinking, "Folk of Shard. Visions has brought us here this day. Idon ain't been amused by yer lack of faith, an' so s'my duty ta inform ya that ya brought down His wrath an' His Idon Raiders on yer heads."

Valoraen asks, "Idon?"

You say, "Foolish citizens of shard."

Ogdaro grins.

Syllanthis says, "Hmm."

Kealitai ponders.

Valoraen asks, "Have you all seen Idon Raiders before?"

Ogdaro exclaims, "Ya sure 'nuff seen 'em now!"

You grin crookedly.

You say, "Just seems like yesterday we were burning down the gates of shard."

Ogdaro nods to you.

Ogdaro says, "Till them bastards put up them metal gates in th' foolish hope of keepin'us out."

You grin at Ogdaro.

Ogdaro says, "Lotta good it done em."

Devoria saunters south.

Fanatic Jairem stomps east.

Hackett says, "And the ants begin to swarm."

Zandrith darkly says, "This city will burn and all shall pay for their sacrilege."

You say, "Seems like yesterday we were here and today they have forgotten."

You shake your head.

You say, "Maybe we been too soft on em."

Kealitai says to Devoria, "We're being raided."

Devoria asks, "Oh?"

Ogdaro says, "They gettin' complacent."

You say, "Hardly a raid."

You say, "More of a reminder."

Ogdaro nods to you.

Devoria raises an eyebrow.

Devoria says, "A reminder of what."

Kealitai shrugs.

Ogdaro says, "We's just remindin' th' folk a'Shard ta be more reverent of th' Lord Idon."

Hackett says, "A reminder of your insolence towards Idon."

Devoria says, "All righty then."

You say, "Its come to my attention shard held a vigil for the dark gods."

Devoria says, "Whatever."

You say, "And failed to mention the great idon."

Ogdaro nods in agreement.

You stare blankly into the distance.

Hackett says, "Ahh so a whatever."

Hackett says, "Apparently we can run amuck."

Syllanthis asks, "Is Idon the heron?"

Ogdaro says, "That sorta sacrelege just ain' gonna stand."

Hackett says, "And whatever we want."

Hackett says, "Thank you oh brave guardian of shard.

Ogdaro nods to Syllanthis.

Zandrith rubs his hands together and touches his pyrite ring.

Valoraen says, "I'll gate folks to you."

You say, "Idon has chosen to remind you citizens."

Ogdaro says, "Yer gonna need it."

You search around for a moment.
Roundtime: 3 sec.
You notice Devoria, who is quite obviously attempting to remain hidden.
You notice Zamn, who is quite obviously attempting to remain hidden.

Ogdaro says, "Shard above all cities oughta know not ta forsake th' dark gods."

Ogdaro says, "Yer lack a'faith is unfortunate."

You say, "Was probably why it was near destroyed not too long ago."

Syllanthis asks, "So what is the proper tribute to be paid?"

You say, "I think eh statue will do."

Zandrith says, "Blood."

Syllanthis says, "Well that's unseemly. I've shed plenty."

You say, "Or maybe falling to your knees and praying to his name."

Zandrith darkly says, "Blood."

Ogdaro nods to you.

Kureta reaches into a pouch and pulls out a handful of dust, which she proceeds to toss in Hackett's face. Hackett's eyes roll up into his head, and he passes out.
Sentinel Kureta carries Hackett away, whistling.

Kureta returns to her post, sighing to herself. "Why do the cute ones always have to be criminals?"

Ogdaro says, "Booze an' blood an' women... an' a statue."

Syllanthis says, "That'll never happen."

You snort, loudly.

Syllanthis says, "The falling to the knees part that is."

Syllanthis says, "The booze and blood I take care of on a regular basis."

You say, "Oh you lucky dats all is requested."

Your mind hears Dianelle thinking, "Are you here to raid the women?"

You say, "If idon has his way you would all be swine fools."

Your mind hears Ogdaro thinking, "Get yerself over here, woman. Ya know we is."

Syllanthis says, "Bloodgrog in Milenes."

Syllanthis asks, "Does that count for both?"

Ogdaro says to Syllanthis, "Go get me some an' we'll findout."

You say, "I'd ranther you kneel and praise be to idon."

You say, "Less you'd rather it be done for ya."

Syllanthis says, "I'll not sully my faith to the scorpion doing such."

You gaze at Syllanthis.

Ogdaro grunts at Syllanthis.

Your mind hears Ruea thinking, "You'd better go get changed, Nelle, they might muss you."

Zandrith darkly says, "It can be arranged."

Syllanthis says, "Nor will I leave the gate because a fat lot of bullies come bandylegging about."

Ogdaro says, "We'll sully more'n yer faith, boyo."

You say, "Not worship, simply admitting his name."

Syllanthis says, "Grog and praises are fine."

Syllanthis scoffs at Ogdaro.

Syllanthis says, "I'm a girl thank you."

Raider Hackett just arrived.

You ponder.

Hackett joins your group.

Ogdaro says, "Couldn't tell."

You grin at Hackett.

Zandrith darkly says, "He likes em either way."

Syllanthis says, "Oh that's just mean."

You say, "How about this."

You say, "You find some booze."

Syllanthis says, "Course I don't have normal mammal parts."

Ogdaro says, "Yer s'kra, may's well be a fella s'far's I's concerned, never could figger out how ta make ya gals operate."

The tip of Syllanthis's tail makes lazy circles in the air.

You say, "And mention the name idon and you will be safe from the wraith."

Syllanthis smirks.

You shift your weight.

Syllanthis snickers.

Hackett says, "I think you need some sort of probe."

Hackett says, "To determine."

Ogdaro leans on his icon.

Zandrith crouches down and sulks.

Hackett says, "And you look for a lil nugget inside."

Clynlyn grins.

Hackett gets a dark steel scimitar with a polished flamewood hilt from inside his leather pack.

Ogdaro lowers his head and snarls viciously, adopting a tight defensive stance.

Hackett pulls Syllanthis towards him!

Hackett says, "Lemme check ya for nugget."

Zandrith stands up.

Ogdaro says, "I gotta say, these city defenders ain't defendin' much 'bout their city."

Hackett shakes his steel scimitar at Syllanthis.

Clynlyn asks, "What did the mark tell you?"

You say, "I say we start some fires."

Ogdaro nods to you.

You nod to Ogdaro.

Uthgaar just came through a small steel door in the city gate, leading his group.
Uthgaar leans on his spear.

Ogdaro asks, "They got anythin' worth burnin' 'round here?"

You snort at Uthgaar.

Zandrith darkly says, "Daeth, destruction, pain."

Syllanthis asks, "Is this raid a historical thing for your group?"

Hackett says, "Truely a sad display."

You say, "Nothin historical bout forgettin idon."

Syllanthis says, "No I meant did you do it before."

Uthgaar squints at you.

Ogdaro says, "Pretty sure th' last time we raided we already burned up all their pride an' such, ain't sure they got nothin' left."

You say, "Many times."

You say, "Last time we were here they installed metal gates."

You say, "Lots of good that did."

Syllanthis asks, "Do you go about to all the cities and raid?"

Ogdaro nods to you.

Syllanthis asks, "Or just us?"

Ogdaro says, "Wherever th' will of Idon leads us."

You say to Syllanthis, "Depends."

You say to Syllanthis, "You asked for this."

Hackett says, "You still havent constructed a shrine to Idon."

Syllanthis asks, "Have you gone to others before?"

Hackett says, "So you."

Ogdaro says, "T'day it leads us ta ya faithless lot."

You say, "Thats not your concern."

Syllanthis says, "I'm sure there is an altar in the dark temple."

You snicker at Syllanthis.

Ogdaro says, "Let's go ta Idon's alcove, darlin', I'll be happy ta sacrifice ya there."

Ogdaro grins at Syllanthis.

Syllanthis says, "I thought trothfang was the killing bloodletting type."

Syllanthis says, "Wouldn't be the first time the scorpion sent me to void for a checkup."

Syllanthis smiles at Ogdaro.

You say, "Well time has come and idon is not please."

You exclaim, "For idon!"

Zamn comes out of hiding.
Zamn drops a stoppered vial.
You hear the faint sound of breaking glass as a cloud of greenish gas begins to pour from .
Allye falls to her knees coughing.
Rablan falls to his knees coughing.

Syllanthis closes her eyes and breathes deeply.

Hackett bows his head and chants a prayer.
You cackle!

Uthgaar searches around for a moment.

Heucuva falls to his knees coughing.

You say, "Inhale your punishment."

Hackett says, "Feel idon course through your lungs."


Kills and attacks from both sides----

Ventuul leaps from hiding and ambushes you, but you are not surprised.

  • Moving like a striking snake, Ventuul thrusts a sleek black briquet set with ox-blood coral in the pommel at you. You fail to dodge. The briquet lands a harmless strike to your right arm.

[You're incredibly balanced and in good position.]

Rablan gestures.
Rablan breaks out into a sweat.

Hackett bows his head and chants a prayer.

Zandrith glowers.

You snarl.

>throw ven You get a long hafted frost-bladed scythe from inside your black backpack.
< Moving with incredible power and control, you throw a long hafted frost-bladed scythe at Ventuul. Ventuul barely blocks with a crocodile-skin buckler. The scythe lands an extremely heavy hit that amputates the left arm and a good deal of the shoulder in a crippling blow, stunning him.

The frost-bladed scythe lodges itself deeply into Ventuul!
[You're incredibly balanced and overwhelming opponent.] [Roundtime 3 sec.]

Ogdaro says, "Die in th' streets like th' dogs ya is."

Hackett gestures at Ventuul.
A mass of pearly grey ether erupts from thin air, coalescing into the spectral form of a pristine silver unicorn which gallops rapidly toward Ventuul.
The silver unicorn rears up gracefully and slams down with head lowered, its horn brutally impaling Ventuul's spine amidst sickening sounds of ground bone and devastated innards! After a moment, his lifeless body slowly slides off the bloody horn.
A panicked scream pierces the air. "Murderer!" You notice the nearby citizenry staring at Hackett briefly, before most quickly run off in fear.

Ogdaro grins.

A greenish cloud dissipates away.
Uthgaar searches around for a moment.

Ogdaro grows suddenly quiet, his eyes dangerously calm as his limbs shiver like anxious leaves before summer's fearsome storm. A terrible roar of fury and bloodlust escapes his throat like the first crash of thunder, his body exploding into a berserker rage as his eyes retain an unsettling and deadly calm.

Devoria reveals herself.
Devoria gestures at Hackett.

Hackett gestures, muttering a quiet riddle.
A pair of immense ghostly hands sweep forward to grasp Devoria in a translucent embrace!
The ghostly hands interlock their wispy fingers, locking themselves tightly around Devoria.

You turn to face Devoria.

You gesture.
The mana you were holding contributes to the spell.
Harnessing the winds to your will, you throw your hand up and a gale explodes outward!

Devoria is hit by a wall of churning air and thrown off balance.
Devoria is hurled north!

You stumble north, leading your group.
[Shard, Katamba's Crescent Road]
The dull glow of dark diamondique offers a tantalizing glimpse of the West Gates to the south, the shadow of Wyvern Mountain trying hard to steal what little light glances off the portal's softly rounded arch. The lap of the water that surrounds the city is lulling, carrying over through the walls and foundations that protect Shard from the liquid's eroding power. You also see a spool of stout thread.
Also here: Death Dealer Zandrith who is shrouded in ghostly flames, Raider Ogdaro who is surrounded by a shimmering shield, Raider Hackett who is shrouded in ghostly flames and Devoria who is lying down.
Obvious paths: northeast, south.

A bolt of bluish lightning blazes out of the sky toward Devoria!
The bolt strikes her right eye, blasting it right out of its socket.
Roundtime: 2 seconds.
A panicked scream pierces the air. "Murderer!" You notice the nearby citizenry looking your way for the moment, before most quickly run off in fear.

  • Devoria is slain before your eyes!

The ghostly hands binding Devoria slip away and vanish.
Hackett stops advancing since Devoria is dead.

You hear your mental voice echo, "How many more shall die before idon be praised"

You turn to face Allye.
Uthgaar slightly hinders your attack with his tower shield!
< Driving in like an adept combatant, you throw a long hafted frost-bladed scythe at Allye. Allye barely blocks with a buckler azure bearing a winged horse argent salient. The scythe lands an extremely heavy hit that rips the left leg from the hip socket, making a wet popping sound.

The frost-bladed scythe lodges itself deeply into Allye!
[You're incredibly balanced and in dominating position.] [Roundtime 3 sec.]

Alley Fighter Allye limps east.

Hackett makes a holy gesture and intones reverently, "Idon, hear my plea!"

Alacron sniffles.

You stare aghast as filthy diseased boils slowly cover Alacron.

Hackett grins at Alacron.

Alacron says, "I think I'm sick."

You say, "Yes spread the plague to these citizens."

The dark plum arrow lands nearby!
[You're incredibly balanced and in excellent position.] Liurilias gestures at you.

Liurilias gestures at you.
A mass of translucent ether erupts from thin air, coalescing into the spectral form of a hazy grey unicorn which gallops rapidly toward you.
Your dark mantle of aether flutters angrily as if caught in a sudden wind.
Your arm buckles as the grey unicorn whams its horn squarely on your ironwood shield, but you are unfazed.

Your throat contracts suddenly, growing cooler as your Dragon's Breath spell dissipates.

  • Moving like a striking snake, Ventuul thrusts a sleek black briquet set with ox-blood coral in the pommel at you. You fail to dodge, taking the full blow. The briquet lands an apocalyptic strike (So that's what it felt like when Grazhir shattered!) that shoves the briquet clean through the mouth and out the back of the head (Say 'ah'!).

Your hand mallet falls to the ground.

Your death cry echoes in your brain as it quickly dawns on you that you have just died! Already, you feel the tug of eternity upon your soul and you struggle to remain tied to this world.

A chill takes the seat of your soul as your remaining spiritual strength bleeds away steadily. However, you are comforted that you have curried the favor of your god, which will greatly improve the course of your resurrection or reincarnation.

Liurilias chuckles.

Your heart continues its slow, steady rhythm.

Sendithu leaps from hiding and ambushes you, but you are not surprised.

  • Moving like a striking snake, Sendithu thrusts a finely balanced kastneth adorned with a carved granite pommel in the form of a raven at you. You fail to dodge, avoiding only some of the blow.

Liurilias's silver glow flares.
< With the speed and temerity of a swooping falcon, you throw a deep mahogany spear carved with a flame-shrouded centaur at Liurilias. Liurilias partially blocks with a faiyka oval shield with triple rays shining over a verdant forest of muted jade light.


The spear lands a demolishing hit (15/22) that pierces clean through the abdomen and out the back (Shiskabob!).

The mahogany spear lodges itself savagely into Liurilias!

  • Liurilias is slain before your eyes!

Tendrils of ethereal blue light suddenly enwreathe Liurilias, fading from view as they race in a swirling pattern down his body, disappearing into the ground.
A panicked scream pierces the air. "Murderer!" You notice the nearby citizenry looking your way for the moment, before most quickly run off in fear.
[You're solidly balanced]

You reveal yourself.
You gesture at Jairem.
The mana you were holding contributes to the spell.
You manage to channel quite a lot of your energy into the spell. The rest is wasted.
A mass of pearly grey ether erupts from thin air, coalescing into the spectral form of a pristine silver unicorn which gallops rapidly toward Jairem.
Jairem's blue-scale buckler is knocked aside before the rampant equine.
The silver unicorn rears up gracefully and slams down with head lowered, its horn brutally impaling Jairem's neck amidst sickening sounds of ground bone and devastated throat! His lifeless body hangs from the unicorn's bloody horn for several moments.
A panicked scream pierces the air. "Murderer!" You notice the nearby citizenry looking your way for the moment, before most quickly run off in fear.
Jairem stops teaching.

  • Jairem is slain before your eyes!

The unicorn tosses its ethereal silken mane about as it tramples the carcass under its hooves before fading.
The field of silver-blue light dissipates from around Jairem.
The translucent sphere around Jairem suddenly pops like a soap bubble.
The soft white glow fades from around Jairem.

Uthgaar turns to face you.

  • Driving in with naturally fluid movements, Uthgaar throws a deep mahogany spear carved with a flame-shrouded centaur at you. You dodge.

The mahogany spear lands nearby!
[You're nimbly balanced and in better position.] >Sendithu leaps from hiding and ambushes you, but you are not surprised.
Your silver glow flares.

  • Moving as one fluid extension of power, Sendithu thrusts a finely balanced kastneth adorned with a carved granite pommel in the form of a raven at you. You fail to evade, only slightly avoiding the blow. The kastneth lands a massive strike that pierces clean through from one side of the neck to the other (Looks like a party gag, except for being quite dead).

The orb of swirling light flickers and dies, and you sense the magics of your Osrel Meraud spell depart.
A dancing aura of spectral flame begins to waver about your lifeless body.

Lots more blood and death on both sides.

You hear Ogdaro: "We're leavin' ya ta stew in th' juices of th' lessons what's been learned inta ya this day. Don't go lettin' yer devotions ta Idon slip again."

Ruea: Was there an actual tally of which side took more deaths?

Erixx: I care not for death toll, the blood of shard has been spilt Idon is pleased
