Hi all,

I've had some distracting-but-not-serious health issues recently so I havent been checking RPG as much as I should and havent been able to write all that much. I'm on the mend tho and am pondering ways to get this going again and/or a soft-remake that will incorporate much of the storyline and posts from this one from players interested in continuing. Shoot me your thoughts.

The Battle of Zar Vorgul


Vymar swatted the Rainlander's spear-tip away with the flat of his sword and took off the Salszi's head with his axe. Another came at him, screaming prayers to his gods as he lunged. The norseman sidestepped his attack and buried his blade in the soldier's heart, his sword biting hard through armored scales.

It was anarchy on the northern wall. A scene from Hell.

Towers wrought in the shape of feral Salizsi gods, their eyes flaming above gaping iron maws, disgorged an endless stream of Rainlanders into the melee all along the parapets.

Cannons thundered from Salished firing positions in the vast, dry plains beyond the walls. Zar Vorgul's thick stone ramparts cracked and buckled under the barrage, then- surreally- reassembled themselves, healed by enchantments weaved into them at their construction.

Drathan rockets screamed as they arced over the battlements, bursting over the Salished hordes in fiery stars raining shrapnel and flames and ichor-poisoned fumes.

The dawn air was thick with arrows and bullets and dust and smoke and insects driven mad by spellcraft; the sun glowed angry and dull red, half-hidden in the haze. The mingled reek of blood and sweat and gunpowder was nearly overpowering, with a strong, sour under-note of spent magic.

Vymar was fighting at the mouth of a siege-idol, where a mixture of Beast Kings and Cowards Men were meeting the Rainlander assaults with fury and steel. A Drathan master stood perfectly still among the defenders, eyes closed. Vymar had seen him kill at least two dozen enemies with his bare hands in the quarter of an hour since he'd arrived on the wall. Their bodies lay torn and broken at his feet. Even in the thick of battle, Vymar had a peculiar sense of foreboding...he wondered why the wizard was here, precisely- what was he waiting for?
I'm kinda in this awkward situation where its probably too late to position myself to get involved in the battle, so I'm not entirely sure yet if I'll set myself up to arrive shortly after the battle has ended or just go someplace else.


There's always @Nieszka's folks
I wouldn't mind just getting to see the battle post so I can start working on my own reply.


Will PM it to you when it's done.

OK show of hands- who would like me to wait for them to get a post up before beginning the battle? Not to call people out, but @Sightseer, @Aristo,@Cairo, & @Lone Wanderer (and maybe @Culluket) had chars at the war council and it would be good to get at least a few of you to post before things get real. any takers?
@FlaggSure, if everyone is on board I'll have it out asap.


Let me know how I can help manage/get this re-started?
looks awesome.
@Sigma@GreivousKhan@gorgenmast@Legion02@Ozerath@Drunken Conquistador@Flagg

The RP is only dead if we stop posting. I update the map, I run the lore doc, the GM is unnecessary.

I hope you all want to continue this. I will have a solo out soon.


Wanna restart the RP in a new thread? The folks still around can re-post their posts, maybe we'd have more control over the setting/main plot?
@Bigg Slamm Could you also stick it in the chartab? Thanks.
