Subject Evil Deeds

There comes a time and all mages lives when it is time to leave
the tower and begin either to rampage or help those of this
world. Too long I have held off going out into the world which
has been the cause of so much of my pain.  This day I left the
tower and through my magic journeyed to the High Clerist Tower
here I expected to find an opponent worthy of destroying for I
have a hatred of the Solamnics. But to my surprise I find one of
our own apon the steps of this place. A wearer of the Robes red
and thus did I utter a word hiding myself from plain sight. Then
did I seek to remind this red robe of where is place was to be.
Throwing a powder into his face from the shadows I did not expect
his reaction. His being sensed my evil and the stench of my power
and he did flee. But the persuit was on following him quickly I
again threw powder in his face and uttering a word his eyes
turned to milk. He swung his dagger but it was to no avail I
quickly subdued him and stop over him and demanded he tell me his
name. 'Antius' he uttered, fool I called him and using the butt
of my own dagger hit him across the head. For his death was not
my purpose the good knights were to feel my wrath this day.

(Attacked Antius in the High Clerist Tower, His death was not my
purpose I only had wished to put the fear of evil in him.
Unfortunately the attacks went too quickly and the fight was over
in seconds. But he put up a good fight regardless. Let him
recieve sanctuary from all evil of the conclave for atleast the
next 24 hours I will attack him no further unless he wishes to
test himself against me)

Subject Calypso

I had studied the girl, Calypso, and her studies, for the past
few days. I had watched her slay innocent faeries and sprites. 
She reeked of evil everytime I passed her by.  I had watched
other Black Robes, and they were growing in power.  I could not
let the power shift to favor one side greatly, and I knew I must
keep the balance.  I stalked her in the recesses of the High
Clerists Tower, where she had slain numerous beings.  I stalked
her and when I saw and opening I struck.  She was more powerful
than expected as she resisted my sleep spell.  As she fled, she
shouted for me to stop, but I knew that I must help shift the
power so that it would balance, for without balance, there would
remain only Chaos.  She tried to flee, but within the walls of
the area we fought, had been weaved some of the greatest magics,
so she could not magically flee.  I quickly left her unconscious,
hopefully keeping her from helping the unbalance for some time. 
Hopefully. I took two items, two items that would do better in
the hands of the Balance...

Ghared rose from his knee`s , he had spent many days in fast and
prayer...  Seeking guidance from Black Death.  His sudden urge to
seek some mortal being and sacrifise it to his Lord overwhelmed
him.  Fast and prayer were not enough..  Insufficient to please
his Lord.  Fastening his robe , Ghared reached for his mace and a
small pouch filled with poison dust. Sighing , Ghared lifted the
mace to his lips and kissed the cold metal. Suddenly , Images of
a Solamnic Knight appeared in the Nightlord`s mind.. Images of
this man fighting , swift slashes and cuts disturbed Ghared ,
this man was no ordinary warrior...  Brow furrowed , Ghared
whispered words of prayer to his Lord , to transport him to this
Warrior...  With a flash of dull yellow light , Ghared was
transfered to the shadow`s of a run-down building.  Slightly
dazzed by the sudden change of surronding , Ghared blinked
several times before his vision and mind returned to their
original state.  The sounds of steel clashing was nearby ,
lifting his mace slowly , Ghared walked about the building... 
There he was..  The warrior , whose images he had just seen. 
Uttering a few words of thanks to his Lord , Ghared moved towards
the man slowly , making sure that the sound of his footsteps do
not alarm the Warrior.  Lifting his bag of poison dust , Ghared
threw the pouch.  The contents dispersed into the air as soon as
they struck the warrior.  Uttering his prayers once more to his
Lord , to poison this symbol of threat to his order and
priesthood , Ghared blinked , awaiting the effects of the poison
to befall the warrior.  Minutes passed and the Warrior continued
fighting with the same verocity as before , Snarling , Ghared
clenched his fist and lifted it pointed the fist towards the man.
 Lifting his mace , Ghared rushed towards the warrior , uttering
words to summon fire`s from the ninth hell to burn the Solamnic

A spell of continual light went horribly wrong today in the
laboratory in Wayreth. Instead of producing a globe of light, it
turned into a rombus of fiery, shreiking death. The High Archmage
of the White Robes was closest and lost conciousness trying to
controll it. Myself being furthest away went to him and managed
to pull his body away from the terrible geometric mistake.

He is safe now and recovering. Now I just have to figure out what

Unfortunately for Elmdor, he was distracted by the young goblin's

Subject Treik

I sat in the Library of Palanthas lamenting over the boredome
I've been feeling of late. With no promising pupils to teach and
no new texts to study, I've been simply attending to the minor
duties of a Highmaster.

So when a kender came in dressed in the red robes of a cleric, I
glanced upward naturally. I noted the symbol of Lunitari on his
medallion and decided a chat might be in order. I approached him
and we began discussing magic and the moons themselves.

The conversation went well untill I asked pointedly why Lunitari
would even favor a Kender. He became quite irritated and informed
me that he was more able to cast magic as a kender than I was as
a human, but found praying more fullfilling. I would probably
have apologized except I found the notion had all the appeal of a
goblin prostitute crawling up my leg with a rusty knife.

I simply told him a kender had no buisiness doing anything aside
from coin redistribution, and he became quite livid and asked me
if I wished to test the theory. Being bored, I accepted.

We met on the plains south of the Tower of the High Clerist and
did battle.

It went back and forth fairly evenly untill finally I turned to
my elementary days as a spellcaster and cast a sleep spell upon

It slipped just past his protective shields Lunitari had favored
him with and encouraged a rather short fall to the ground, where
he lay slumbering peacefully.

him in a chair as though he'd simply fallen asleep. I wonder if
he'll remember our duel, or if he'll think it was all just a

Conclave ] [Black]  High Archmage Ralmus

It is 1:45, Day of Shadow Day, 33rd the Month of Harvestfete.

Today the balance is reknewed, the dark leader of the Black Robes
has been deposed.

I do not pretend to know much about krynn, but i do know that
there is priceless little that goes unwatched or unheard.

Arch Mage Ralmus, a demon of sorts but, man by creation
constantly tipped the scale to black. His heart is ridden with
worms, and those that have fallen victim to his power have been
let loose upon krynn, souless and wandering.

"Something disturbed the pool on this day, the waters stirred and
rippled; beckoning. At it's center I spied the evil one with the
red robe Lelthas."

The compulsion to fight was strong. I remembered my debt to the
conclave, how it was these two who had caught me unawares the
last we met. I paced the circumfrence of the pool and was
stricken by inspiration.

Now was the time to equalize our fates. Grip tight, I threw my
body into the pool...

here in Solamnia. Perhaps the Scholars of the Library will be
able to... help... me?" *The shadow coalesces into a large dark
form and walks south* *Screams can be heard thru the City and
fires are burning in the background as a large party moves into

and it's Army of charmed Historians, he simply stares and says
nothing as they prepare to leave.

it dawn on him what significance the Kender plays*  "Is it not as
the writing had said? YOU! Loreseeker! You had said the scrolls
spoke of an Essence?"

in a tongue dead for more than an Age- he carefully explains to

answered in a Prayer the Kender who had been in the Dome passed
by the Foutain and headed west* "Oh I DO believe I know where

down into Central Palanthas killing noble children and ruffians

out of every home he searched for the Kender- and finally found
him in a hidden place long forgotten by most. He tried to speak
to him and ask him nicely for what he needed but words Magically
failed him.

But as he soon realized his friends would make short work of this
poor Bard, and his body was left very near to death- pale white
with bloodloss from the hole in his side... and whatever it was
that was taken out of him.
