I have noticed that one of the guards isn't that evil as it seems

I have talked to him quite a lot, mainly because I haven't had
anything else to do.

And he told me that his grandfather was a Solamnic knight.

So I think that if I can convince him to let me go, I will help

Elzaroth and Anu:

Having three to one odds on the Knights, and two to one odds on the
dragons, they attack once more, dragons against dragons, humans
and demihumans against humans and demihumans.  Orders include making
a reasonable attempt to take Conrad alive and confiscate all his weapons.

Troops are warned (probably needlessly) to be wary of another demon

to go recruit more of their kind, 30 to recruit among the townsfolk,
30 to work on a couple more ships with the Ogres, and the rest (39)

Some of you may reconize this tactic or you may not. but here it
goes For as long as it takes i send my group, whom you may
remeber as the Underground (those bent on the destruction fo all
things organized) wait let me back u I have been gathering
members for the underground for 6 months irl time players and the
like but i have rp'd many npc's and thigns of that matter I have
no idea how many "troops" i have thats up to you guys To

I send my group to find the war machines of kot, kos and wr, and
i set up an area with traps Not a big area, but a substantial
amount, and i dress my men as the opposition of whichever area i
am in at the time IE: For the kos traps, my men wear KoT
look-alike armour.

Once the traps are built, all my men but say, 5% will leave,
those who stayed behind will be inflixted with plague.

My group are full of basically cultist, they shouldnt have a
problem with sacrificing themselves.

Once they are found out, they will ensue a battle to make the
opposing army think the entire area is full of the oposing
knights This done, they then surrender one by one, until all 5%
are captured. as prisoners Or until all are dead.

If many survive, once taken back to camp as prisoners, they will
ask for the right to die in combat with the leader of that
current camp, hem ay or may not grant this.

At any rate, no matter what happens people will misterioulsy
catch the plague, and hopefully the clerics wont notice. im
counting on the arrogance of the kos and kot not to show a
weakness such as a headache or whatever.

This will effectivly spread disease through all of the war
machines and plays out my part in the war.

Thyrix will lead half of the men, and I will lead the other half
to set up the traps This can take as many days as you think and
please just count it as myne and his action until it is done.

thank you.

 Subject War Action, Tuesday 11 Dec

It appears that the tides have changed once more for the side of
good. A pity to think that my own moment of glory was dashed
aside with the act of one Aurin of the Conclave. No matter, for
as it seems his action has driven the Knights of Takhisis from
Palanthas and possibly straight into the arms of my own legions.

Strange how the actions of one person can sway the balance back
to its original yielding of good and evil, though I'm not one to
sit idle to allow this change my mind. With the Knights of
Takhisis on the run outside the city of Palanthas I shall send my
legions to finish them off. The swarms of bumble-bees and
chipmunks shall wash over the land in a tide of rabid fur,
cleansing the skies with the buzzing of thousands of bumble-bees
and cloak the knights in the shadow as they turn again to run.
Those not caught in the wave of chipmunks or the cloud of lesser
bumble-bees shall be picked clean from the land by their greater
cousins, those of the giant bee population I have mustered for my
forces. Those that do not die shall be carried away by the giant
bees and brought back to my house and thus kept as their brethren
Zanf is. In hopes that this "battle" will end swiftly my
elementals forces will be split in half, one to guard the Red
Silk and the other to ferret out Knights of Takhisis from Yarus.
With luck I will also take Yarus and insure the safety of my
establishment in future times. Those harlots that manage a swift
return will be placed in charge of gathering the inhabitants of
Yarus in hopes of keeping them from harms way. In the end they
will be released and free to do what is desired. If any portion
of my plan does in fact fail I will wield my own magic in defence
of my establishment and that of Yarus, by the grace of Lunitari I
hope this does not come to happen.

OOC: If this works out like I hope it does I'm going to be
posting a story to the entire mud about what happened. *smiles*
I'd appreciate it if the results were kept secret to the entire
mud until I could post the story, most likely the moment I
received the results. Thanks much.

Ergothian sworddancers that trained her as she was growing up.


Attempts to recruit some more dragons, and has his barbarians
attempt to recruit from the Ofcol citizens and Sanction citizens.


Has Tempest attempt to recruit more dragons.  Orders half his
troops to train, leads the other half in recruiting more
Tarsinians, especially mages and clerics.

surrounding the Tower.


Passes through the gate to HCT with his Shadow Dragon, Murder, to

Attempts to determine whether he can safely, magically duplicate
the stored chlorine gas into empty, sealed jars.  If so, he does
that for the rest of the day; if not, he attempts to create a
Permanent Gate to Sanction big enough for men horseback to ride
two abreast through it.


Works on preserving the bodies of those Knights who died in
honorable combat for burial after the war has ended, or at least
moved out of the vicinity.  This includes both Solamnic and KoT
bodies.  Also, a small group of Knights goes through the High
Clerist's Tower, looking for Magical Artifacts, Holy Relics, or
Traps.  Artifacts are turned over to Knights of the Thorn for
study and possible corruption, and similarly with Holy Relics and
Knights of the Skull.  Beyond that, those who aren't on shift
take the day to recuperate, at times giving those on shift, a
break to do the same.

She sat at the dinner table, eating her cold meal, when a cloaked
man came in with an urgent message.

"Master Lodanis sends for your pressence, M'lady."  Nodding, she
puts away her meal and quickly walks to her master's quarters.

She knocked on the door, a little too fiercely apparently, and it
swung slightly open.  A low baritone voice beckoned her to enter,
and so she did.

"Yes, Master Lodanis?" she asked, questioning her urgent request.
 "Please, close the door, and take a seat."  She quietly closed
the door and sat in a cold wooden chair.

"Lady Sabrina," he began, "I have called you here on an important
matter.  Now, the discussion we might have will contain things
only few have heard, and it means your life will change."

"You have made a serious impression toward me.  Your skills, yes,
all of them, are top notch.  I wish for your assistance on

"But you have to remember, this is a secret matter, one of great
importance.  Do you wish to take on this burden?  My view of you
shall never change, especially on the decision you choose."

With a grin, she nodded.  "Yes Master, of course I accept.  You
know I love a challenge."  A quiet chuckle came from Lodanis.

"Indeed," he agreed, "you do love a challenge."  "Now, to the
important subject.  Sabrina, your word means more to me than any
money, so that's fall I ask for."

"I need your word that you will tell not a soul of what you hear
in these next couple hours."

"By the Dark Master of Vengeance, Sargonnas himself, you have my
word," she said with a more than sincere look in her eyes.


The two spent hours upon hours talking, and plotting the mass
destruction they wished to induce upon the world.

He told her of his Underground Legion and their purpose: total
anarchy and chaos during the war.  The plan was ingenious.

The war would be swept from underneath everyone that involved
themselves in it.  That night too, she met the Dark Cleric.

This man and his followers were the key componets of this
massive, unknown attack.

Okay. I have spoken about this to all 3 of you and was told it
would be taken care of and it has not been.

I havent been given a result to any of my actions since caergoth
was lost. At that point I still had 4 dragons not including my
of my troops left, not including any city militia that remained
under my banner. My actions with them were this. I took them to
northern ergoth, hylo. There I was to recruit any able bodied men
in the area to join me in the purging of the KoT while my men
build dummy boats with ramming spikes and oil on the decks,
buliwyyd is to try and recruit other dragons to our cause. Next,
I was going to take any troops/dragons I had recruited and goto
Daltigoth birthplace of Vinas Solamnus himself, and the place
where the solamnic knigthood first began. There I am to collect
any knights available to my cause and recruit from amongst the
militia and citizens of the great city. Buliwyyd is to once more
try to get other good dragons to follow him. My men are to go to
all the church's of the gods of good, to pray and ask the priests
there for assistance in our struggle.

Next, I would take my amassed forces and the dummy ships to
strike caergoth, using the dummy boats to flame and ram them
toward any port defenses, and attempt to retake the city. If
succesful I rally the people of caergoth to rejoin me, and free
any knights still imprisoned in the city. Finally I will march
with any forces I still have left(if any) to the HCT.

I didn't get results for the last 7 actions or so, there should
be plenty of days travel time for that. Just need my results from
those actions so I can make a -new- action for tommorow? Thank

Continues recruiting dragons, militia, and ogres.


Heads for Throtyl, dragonback, to convince the goblins and
hobgoblins to ally with the Knighthood.  (OOC - there is some
confusion going on here.

I could swear that I'd previously seen a summary or action that
stated Anu was going to Throtyl, but then he was posted a couple
days ago as still being at the High Clerist's Tower.  So, he's
somehow still under the impression he's reached Throtyl and is
training gobs *shrug*.  I'm taking the opportunity to have him go
there, since we have several PCs staying (for now) in the region
to train the NPCs.)


Continues training all the troops, the Blacks with him are sent
out to see if they can recruit more Blacks.


Kalevi continues to recruit as before, but devotes some time to
teaching his new troops combat theory - that is, working as a
cohesive army.  His dragon mount will likewise discuss strateg
with the growing number of Blue dragons.


Attempts to recruit more militia, while Tempest recruits more


Works with Skull Knights at the High Clerist's Tower in an
attempt to create a potion made from a few drops of his blood. 
The hope is to create something that will grant temporary
immunities and strengths common to vampires.

(It is understood that this potion, even if successful, will
likely be significantly less powerful than his own abilities)

Saige:  Takes three militia-grade clerics (from the HCT?) and
heads for North Keep, in Nordmaar, to scout it and see what's
there.  Besides basic scouting to see whether and by what it is
occupied, they will make attempt to penetrate the keep in order
to better report on numbers, armaments, and so forth.


Seeks out troops who might have had masonry or architectural or
engineering learning and/or experience.  If he finds none who
have formal training (former apprentices and/or
journeymen/masters), he takes the thirty men with the best eye
for detail and design who are good at following orders.

Regardless, he takes this group and has them start rebuilding the
fallen or mangled portions of the Tower, concentrating primarily
on utilitarian and defensive rebuilding - carpets, furniture,
etc, can wait.

As they build, he asks Takhisis's blessing on each stone, that it
may be strengthened against those who follow the gods of Good.
