“Royal Guard corrupt! King of Britain causes Minax’s return. Britianna is Doomed.”

who is posting the notes


Angrily Lord Pistachio read the indigo colored poster. What nonsense he thought wadding it up and throwing it away. For all his faults,the King isn’t responsable for Minax’s return. If anyone is it would be Lord British. She only appeared after his return. Still with Merrick’s betral and spies discovered in the Royal guard, the people might believe the notes. Frowning he hurried to meet with Captain Corian. Arriving he found people angerly discussing the posters.

A worried Captain Corian arrived unnoticed. “Good evening, how are you all fairing?” “Angry and worried about the posters outside.” Lord Pistachio replied. “They are every where! What is being done about them?”

Frowning Captain Corian nodded, “That is why I called you here. Already the notes are causing problems. Several Nobles have approached me. They have heard whispers among the citizens agreeing with the notes. They remember the corruption found in the guard before the King reclaimed his throne. These notes do nothing for their confidence in the crown.”





disinstion in the realm

“What is the King’s response?” Someone in the crowd asked.

“He is worried more about Britannia and attempts to undermine his rule.” the captain paused. “My orders are to send you, the Royal Spies, to find more information.”

“Do you have an idea where we should begin?” Lord Pistachio asked.

Captain Corian nodded, “Yes, we believe someone in Jhelom is responsible for this. The city needs to be searched, every house and the outlying islands, for some trace of the indigo dyes. My hope is that you will stumble across someone or something.” Looking around, he continued, “Since the presence of the Royal Guard will do more harm, I will remain here. Report to me if you can find a lead

Arriving in Jhelom, Lord Pistachio quickly organized the search. Some would search each house. Others would travel to the Islands. Lord Pistachio lead the search of the south west island. There, in a small house, he found indigo dyed clothes, notes, forged letters and a spy. Lord Pistachio hand her a note. “What do you know about this?” he demanded.

“What this… document incriminates the King? the spy tried to look surprised. “Isn’t it the truth? Wasn’t the King responsible for the death of a shipping Captain named Elise the Golden?”


the source

“No, but that isn’t why we are here. Who is behind this?” Lord Pistachio watched as the spy moved to hid a paper lying on the floor. Pushing her aside, Lord Pistachio picked up a letter addressed to Adrian Fisher. “What do you know about this?” shoving the letter at the spy.

“Hold on a moment…that name is familiar.” she looking nervously around. “Doesn’t he work for the Thieves’ Guild? I wouldn’t think the Guild would be so reckless. I have been spending too much time in Ter-Mur as of late…so I’ve not been well informed.”

“Ter-Mur, have you been spying on, Dahlia?” Lord Pistachio demanded angrily.

“Dahlia, she is…currently in Ter-Mur. That is all I can say.” The spy gave a small smile, “You do realize I am not in charge of the network. I am just a tiny cog.

Lord Pistachio looked suspiciously at the spy. “Just who are you working for?”

“Don’t you know?” the spy asked puzzled, “I was on my way back to Ter-Mur when the Captain asked me to come here. I must hurry and pass on what I’ve learned before my Lady Dahlia gets impatient. Surprised, no one moved to stop the spy. Turning back, she said. “You should check a warehouse. It should be in East Britain, toward the southern end. I found something of interest there.”

Shaking his head Lord Pistachio opened a gate. “Why didn’t Captain Corian tell us he had sent another spy? We need to learn what she reported”. He stepped through the gate.

Finding Captain Corian waiting. Lord Pistachio confronted him. “You sent another spy! Didn’t you trust us.” ”

Yes, I sent the spy to Jhelom.” Captain Corian replied. “I feared that you were to well known. She reported that another forged letter was found. Also a letter to Adrian. Before I could ask more, she flitted off in a hurry.”

“She told us that she needed to hurry back to Ter-Mur where Dahlia was waiting for her.” A calmer Pistachio explained.

The news that Dahlia was in Ter-Mur caught Captain Corian by surprise. Narrowing his eyes, he asked “What is Dahlia doing in Ter-Mur…?” No matter, I hope you found something that will help explain the parchments.

Lord Pistachio handed the Captain the letter and notes we had found.

“Adrian, is this the one who works for the thieves’ guild?” the Captain asked.

Pistachio nodded, “The spy thought so, but was surprised that the guild would be involved.”

“I agree.” Captain Corian said, “I can’t see them trying to undermine the crown. I will keep these to show the King. You should go to the warehouse the spy mentioned. Where was it?”

“She said it was in East Britain, the south east tip.” The search began with Captain Corian leading the way.

The warehouse was quickly found. Inside were bags of crushed indigo and jars filled with dye. “Crushed indigo? They were definitely storing things here.” observed Lord Pistachio.

the right place

“Hold here a moment, while I gather guards to watch this place.” Captain Corian said as he looked around. “Lord Pistachio, detain anyone who comes here and escort them to Yew Prison,

Lord Pistachio grinned as he bowed. “I will be honored to.” and he directed us to hid. No sooner had the Captain left, than a woman entered the warehouse. Lord Pistachio quickly had us surround her. The Conspirator held up her hands to hold Lord Pistachio back, “No, stop! I didn’t do anything, I just made the dyes for them…”


dye maker

“For who?” Lord Pistachio asked?

“I don’t know, I swear. I didn’t know what they were using them for.” the conspirator began to cry.

“In the name of the King, you are under arrest.” Lord Pistachio placing irons around her wrist. “Come quietly and all will be found. Captain Corian will want to question you.”

Her eyes widened, “No, not the prison. Please don’t throw me in prison.” She begged falling to the ground. “He made me do it”

Lord Pistachio yanked her up, “Who hired you? Cooperate and all will be fine.

“If I tell you maybe you can let me go?” she asked  hesitantly patting Lord Pistachio’s arm.

Lord Pistachio brushed her hand away. “Tell us what you know. Who hired you?”

“His name was… his name was Adrian, he, he wanted some dyes for one of the Nobles. They said it was… it was for the King’s birthday so I happily helped.” she explained drying her eyes.

Lord Pistachio frowned angrily, “Noble, which noble, give me a name.”

“I honestly had no idea.” the conspirator said, her voice almost a whisper. I don’t know… Adrian didn’t say… he said I would be paid well and the King would see my works displayed.”

Out of the corner of his eye, Lord Pistachio, saw Shimano slip the conspirator a small file. His eyes narrowed as he pulled his prisoner down the road. Shimano, a traitor? he thought to himself. Someone to keep an eye on.

taken to yew

Arriving at the prison, Lord Pistachio handed the conspirator over to the guards. “Check her for the file, then place her in a cell.”

Before the guard could search her, she handed Lord Pistachio the file , See look… I could have kept it… just… don’t leave me here. I’ve heard stories. They let prisons rot here, even if they aren’t guilty.” The conspirator slowly went into the cell. “Please… just don’t… don’t forget I’m here. I would never harm, or spread lies…” Before the guard could shut the door, she stepped back out. “Wait,” I can take you to him. He should be at the shrine of Valor.” She handed Lord Pistachio a rune. “I was to go here if I couldn’t find him.”

Lord Pistachio studied the rune. “This is to place far from any city. Didn’t you find that strange?”

“When I asked him why, he said it would be safer as no one would see us.” she answered thoughtfully. “I admit it …it sounded strange.”

“It would be a good place to make you disappear.” Lord Pistachio said.

The conspirator began shaking, “Kill me…he was going to kill me?”

“You are safe here. The guards will protect you.” Pistachio said trying to reassure her.

Lowering her head, the conspirator quickly went back into the cell. “May be I’m safer her in the cell.” Laying down on the cot, she hoped that she wasn’t left forgotten until she died.

in the cell

Captain Corian meet us outside the prison. Lord Pistachio reported what had been learned.

The Captain listened in disbelief, “They created posters framing the king as a joke?”

Lord Pistachio nodded. “The dyer said the dyes were commissioned by a noble for the King’s birthday.”

Captain Corian glared at the prison. “So they were using the poor girl, letting her be tried for treason. Enough of this find Adrian!”

“She gave us this rune that Adrian gave her.” Lord Pistachio handed the rune to Captain Corian.

Throwing it on the ground, a gate opened. “Prepare for battle, who knows what trap has been set.” the captain said stepping into the gate.

On the other side we found Adrian calmly leaning against a tree. He laughed as he saw us step trough. “So she gave you the rune.”

Captain Corian angrily grabbed him. “What noble paid you to make false posters! Give me the name!”

“I work for whoever pays me the most, it just so happens a man offered me more than the Guild.” Adrian pushed the captains hands away. “I owe them no loyalty.”

adraian again

Grinning he looked at the poster that Lord Pistachio shoved at him, “Those are quite good, don’t you think.”

“No,” Lord Pistachio replied,”Who paid you. Give us his name.”

“And then you won’t take me to prison?” Adrian winked, “Lets see how many times I’ve walked away.” He scowled at Lord Pistachio,” what you take me for a fool. I didn’t ask for names. So, I can’t tell you what I don’t know.” Adrian moved towards the shore.

“So I stir up a little dissent. It keeps you on your toes. Just as my friends here will.” Giving a signal, his mercenaries ran out of the forest and attacked.

Lord Pistachio was ready, cornering Adrian.

Adrian trying to get away shouted at his men, “Do what I hired you to do, keep them away!”

Grabbing Adrian’s hands, Lord Pistachio clapped magic cuffs on them. “Try to break free of these and burn.”

“Well,” Smirking Adrian opening his hand. “I had planned to save this. But this is just too perfect.” Before Lord Pistachio could stop him, Adrian blew a whistle. Lord Pistachio watched the metal grew hotter, then shatter into shards from the cold summoned by the whistle. From the cold Frost Wolves attacked. Just in time Captain Corian slashed the wolf attacking Lord Pistachio. With a nod of thanks, Lord Pistachio joined the battle.

death and destruction


After the battle, a weary Captain Corian sighed, “Why is Dahlia in Ter-Mur, I could use her here now. Agaris has been doing his best, but he is not the spymaster. Some of the spies will not listen to him.” He opened a gate back to the hall. “I’ve given her enough time. The kingdom needs her.”


“Luckily Blackthorn is distracted.” he sighed again, “These rumors have just enough truth to convince the people.

“Blackthorn is a good King, but some still cling to the Virtues too heavily, and they feel like his rule does not coincide with how things should be done.” Lord Pistachio pointed out.

“True, but we can’t have Nobles trying to over throw the king.” the captain replied with a frown. “I’m sure Minax is behind this dissention. I must report to the king. Keep your eyes and ears open. We must find who is behind the dissention.  Lord Pistachio, go to the Yew Prison and release the girl. She was only a pawn. With a bow he left.

Lord Pistachio returned to his keep. His thoughts racing to make sense of what he had learned. What noble is the traitor. Is it someone I know and trusted? I must find out!

Chesapeake Governor’s Council Meeting January 18th, 2015

Chesapeake Governor’s Council Meeting

Blackthorn’s Castle Council Room

January 18th, 2015 6:00 pm EST

The Chesapeake Governor’s Council Meeting started out like any other, the King discussed ongoing issues in the Kingdom, the governor’s discussed events in their cities, onlookers looked on with keen interest or slept noisily. When all of a sudden, out of thin air, black specters appeared. They were quickly dispatched by the governors and onlookers. While the King and governors discussed the incident, trying to figure out how they got through the magic enchantment defenses, an unknown figure appeared. The King recognized the voice and was distraught on the implications.


The unknown stranger moved dangerously close to the King!! The governors quickly surrounded him in a defensive posture, hoping to protect him from danger.

The King soon discovered that he was correct on who the voice sounded like…Nystul!!

Ghost 3

Nystul’s image faded in and out as he spoke, at one point he assumed the form of a former man named David. King Blackthorn tried desperately to keep Nystul from fading, even working some magic of his own.

ghost 4

As quickly as he appeared and in the same manner, he disappeared in a huge flash of flames and  a loud explosion!

ghost 5

The King and governors are left with many questions as they try and ponder what happened and the message Nystul was trying to convey. Hopefully we will learn more at next month’s Chesapeake Governor’s Council Meeting.

[20:03:35] [SunWolf]: Does anyone know the owner of this staff, or the society that she is apart of?
[20:03:41] [Tatiana Thorn]: *studies it*
[20:03:45] [SunWolf]: The same society that has build the Empath Abbey
[20:03:56] [SunWolf]: and has managed the Court of Truth for many years.

[20:04:09] [SunWolf]: When has anyone here, seen the druids in along time?
[20:04:19] [Maki]: hi now kings meeting
[20:04:31] [SunWolf]: It is like they gotten wiped out and tried to be forgotten.
[20:04:43] [King Blackthorn]: The rumor is that all the Druids took to residing inside the great Yew Trees.
[20:04:48] [King Blackthorn]: But tis only a rumor.
[20:05:09] [Galathan]: .
[20:05:16] [SunWolf]: There is still evidence that they are around, but just never seen.
[20:05:32] [SunWolf]: I feel this kingdom, should try to find them, and try to bring them back to us.
[20:05:47] [SunWolf]: We are missing a major part of us
[20:05:57] [SunWolf]: And there would be no Yew, without them.
[20:06:09] [King Blackthorn]: I would suggest an expedition into the Heartwood, they may know something.
[20:06:18] [Tatiana Thorn]: *nods*
[20:06:41] [SunWolf]: *nods*
[20:06:56] [King Blackthorn]: But I agree, awakening the Druids if they be willing would be a major boon to our nation.
[20:07:19] [SunWolf]: I just am hoping, they are not in any trouble, and we been ignoring them.
[20:07:28] [SunWolf]: Or what was the reasoning for them vanishing.
[20:07:46] [SunWolf]: The meer helped with the swamp of all things.
[20:07:57] [King Blackthorn]: An interesting question, I bet they could be of use in the issues of Jhelom as well.
[20:08:10] [Queen Arya]: perks up*
[20:08:37] [King Blackthorn]: I encourage you and everyone to look into what Lord Sunwolf has suggested.
[20:08:49] [Queen Arya]: jots down notes8

[20:10:04] [Galathan]: .
[20:10:16] [King Blackthorn]: Wasnt a memorial already erected there?
[20:10:21] [SunWolf]: *nods*
[20:10:33] [SunWolf]: But, we should reall clean up the place I feel
[20:10:38] [SunWolf]: And put a door back up
[20:10:41] [King Blackthorn]: Ah, a restoration.
[20:10:43] [Andrasta]: Its a small memorial for such a great Queen
[20:10:45] [SunWolf]: *nods*
[20:11:00] [King Blackthorn]: I will have Farthington explore the matter.
[20:11:06] [SunWolf]: A memorial stone outside of a crime scene, doesn’t do justice
[20:11:18] [Andrasta]: *nods*
[20:11:27] [Queen Arya]: I so miss her*
[20:11:27] [SunWolf]: That is all that I have for now.

[20:11:42] [King Blackthorn]: First for Lord Sunwolf.
[20:12:09] [King Blackthorn]: In the past term, I believe it was Governor Norrington that suggested a Tavern…
[20:12:33] [King Blackthorn]: I was wondering what you thought of using the existing Yew Winery as a foundation.
[20:12:41] [King Blackthorn]: And building a Tavern above it.
[20:12:53] [King Blackthorn]: hypothetically of course.
[20:13:06] [SunWolf]: Can I get back with you n that
[20:13:09] [SunWolf]: ??
[20:13:12] [King Blackthorn]: We could also add the monestary bell above it.
[20:13:14] [King Blackthorn]: *smiles*
[20:13:16] [Tatiana Thorn]: would make shipping easy….
[20:13:17] [King Blackthorn]: Sure.
[20:13:22] [Non-Union Worker]: what of the poor Monks with the excellent robes?
[20:13:28] [SunWolf]: The elves and others, asked for a tavern aswell, and I want to hear more of their thoughts

[20:14:28] [Khaleesi]: *looks alarmed*
[20:14:29] [King Blackthorn]: I am a tolorant man, I accept all races as they come and believe they each add to the…
[20:14:32] [King Blackthorn]: Diversity of our land.
[20:14:35] [King Blackthorn]: However.
[20:14:44] [King Blackthorn]: For the sake of the health of Lady Amandine…
[20:14:55] [<14156588>SunWolf]: what happened in the castle?
[20:14:59] [Galathan]: .

On Tuesday, February 26, Commander Gwendolyn Kincade assembled the Royal Britannian Guards at the Warriors Guild in western Britain.  “Tonight,” Kincade informed the assembled Guard, “you will have the honor of protecting the king.”  The mission, as it turned out, was to accompany Lord Blackthorn into the chilling depths of Anodunos to recover its prism.  Without further ado, the Royal Guard transitioned from the meeting hall to Lord Blackthorn’s throne room to receive the final details of the mission prior to setting out.

“I know some of you are worried about the prophecy,” Lord Blackthorn noted, refering to a prophecy learned of by the Royal Guard while aiding Geryon the Ettin.  “I believe with the warning we have, we can avoid such consequences,” Blackthorn continued, reassuring the Guard.  With Lord Blackthorn surrounded by the loyal members of the Guard, the entourage set out for Anodunos with a simple mission:  Protect the King while he cast spells to free the prism from its chilly housing.

At first it seemed the mission might go without hindrance, but Lord Blackthorn seemed wary that the Guard might get cut off from the entrance, and so continued to order patrols between the prism and the entrance.  Almost prophetic in itself, the halls were suddenly filled with various strange spider-like beasts, all under the command of Mors Gotha, who was travelling back and forth between Anodunos and a point unknown, delivering her fiendish creatures.

The battles were each won, but they were definitely victories earned with the blood and sweat of the Royal Guard as some set back into the role of healer to ensure that the fallen were quickly raised and that magical healing was readily available.  “Vas An Hur Ort,” Lord Blackthorn continued to chant as the Royal Guard continued to defend.  “Vas Rel An Hur In Por Ort,” Blackthorn stepped up his spell as Mors Gotha stepped up her attacks.

Finally, as the prism neared freedom, Mors Gotha brought forth her darkest creation yet, a massive Thunder Lightning Spider that easily matched size and ferocity with the Underworld’s own Navrey Night-Eyes.  Gotha seemed certain her arachnid pet would be the end of the Royal Guard, but it was not, and as quickly as it was felled so too did Lord Blackthorn free the prism from its icy home.

Back in Britannia, the Royal Guard recapped the evening, seeing the twin prisms that had once linked Anodunos with Britannia.  “I will place these in the vault,” Lord Blackthorn stated to the Guard.  “We will likely never see Anodunos again.  The spell that froze their world is released.  But I do not know if any survived to rebuild.  Hopefully the ghosts cursed by that place are free to move on.”

[EM Event] Blackrock Prisms Summon Mysterious Woman

January 23, 2013 By: Phayde Category: Great Lakes News

Jeremy the Jeweler

Jeremy the Jeweler

Last evening, Royal Spymaster Magnus Grey summoned the Royal Spies in order to continue working with Damion the Necromancer on the issue concerning the blackrock prism.  For the safety of Britain, King Blackthorn ordered the experiment be conducted in the nearby graveyard to prevent any unexpected and undue casualties.  Meeting with Damion in the graveyard, the Spies were quickly greeted by his usual “cheerful” countenance.  “I can’t work under these conditions,” Damion spouted off to the nearby spies.  He then revealed, “This prism isn’t the right shape.”  With a little prompting from the nearby Spies, Damion suggested heading to a jeweler at Britain’s own A Girl’s Best Friend, and Martyna Z’muir, one of the Assistant Royal Spymasters, picked up the blackrock prism and headed off to do just that.

Upon arrival, Z’muir and the remainder of the Royal Spies herded into the east Britain jewelery shop, but were quickly asked outside by Jeremey the Jeweler, who was most certainly finding it difficult to breathe with so many people suddenly inside.  Z’muir revealed that the prism needed to be cut, and while surprised, Jeremy did not seem to be beyond the task.  “May I ask what it is for?” Jeremy inquired.  “Um… It’s something special,” was Z’muir’s response.  Several others had various answers, but Jeremy seemed satisfied as he inspected the prism further.  “This piece hasn’t been cut,” he noted, “Like it was a single crystal.”  Looking it over carefully, Jeremy agreed that he could make it into a perfect diamond shape, but asked for the sum of 5,000 gold coins to cover his time and expenses in doing so.  Several of the Royal Spies rushed off to return and pay him — likely paying him more than he had asked for.  Once paid, he instructed the Royal Spies to give him a half-hour to complete the work.

Returning to Damion, the Royal Spies informed him that the piece was being worked on.  “I guess we should do the other missing piece then,” Damion announced, and then revealed that he needed a book from a dead person of “great power” that had conveniently left a book that would have instructions on “transfering world-shaking magics around.”  This required a journey into the bowels of Malas’s dungeon Doom.  Wading through the usual habitants of the vile place, Damion and the Spies worked their way to the southwest corner of Doom, passing through unusual guardians that seemed to indicate the group was nearing the tomb of the powerful mage, Unthar.  Once the Tomb of Unthar was secured, Damion removed the lid from the sarcophagus.  Unthar, now a lich, asked, “Who dares trspass in my tomb?” but quickly caught sight of Damion and called out, “Traitor!”  While the Spies were quick to dispatch Unthar, Damion warned they should quickly leave, as Unthar would mend himself in short time.  Tome in hand, Damion and the Spies returned to Britain, there, Damion sending the Spies back to collect the prism.

Martyna Z’muir led the charge back to A Girl’s Best Friend, where a rather angry jeweler awaited them.  “How dare you use me for your king’s foul magic!” Jeremy the Jeweler cried out.  “The king’s blackrock prisms.  Everyone must have heard about them but me.  Another trick by ‘king’ Blackthorn.”  Though some gathered tried to diffuse the situation, others served to press the issue, and Jeremy finally yelled, “We won’t allow Britannia to fall into Chaos!”  Members of the Bastion of Light then appeared and a skirmish quickly broke outside of the jewelers.  Once dispatched, Damion showed up, and was immediately accused of setting the Spies up for a fall.  “I want an apology,” Damion demanded.  Entering the jeweler’s, the prism was found by Damion, who, giving up on an apology, said, “I don’t like you.  You don’t like me.  But we need to finish this stupid ritual so we can be apart.”

Prism Ritual

Prism Ritual

Returning to Britain’s graveyard, the ritual involving the prisms finally began, with Damion and some of the braver Royal Spies chanting, “Vas Ex Por Ort In Ylem Por.”  Swirling vortices of unleashed void energy ripped through the area, interrupting the casting of the spell, but again, the Royal Spies held fast.  Another casting of the spell, more void energies, and then a gigantic explosion wrapped up the ritual, a gate appearing in the center of the blackrock pieces, and there, standing, looking quite shocked, stood a myserious woman who regained her bearings, and then immediately fled.  Clad in chain and plate armors, donning a violet cloak, no more was seen of her as the Royal Spies lost her in a frantic chase throughout the graveyard.  When asked who she was, Damion responded, “I don’t know… but she isn’t from here,” but as the Royal Spies were chasing her, he cast a spell to dispel the gate through which she had come.

Lord Blackthorn appeared shortly after, and gathered the pieces of the blackrock prisms, asking the Royal Spies to escort him and the pieces back to the hidden vault. “I will look into these prisms more,” Blackthorn announced as the pieces were again secure, “and the stranger who entered Britannia.” King Blackthorn then returned the Spies to their normal duties, asking them to report in to the Royal Spymaster.

The debriefing wrapped up the eve’s mission with the assembled spies reporting on what had transpired throughout the night. Before dismissal, Lady Sarah Paumera had an announcement of her own to make: On Saturday at 8:00pm CST, Lady Louisa Clark will lead the annual celebration of the journey of the great explorer, Brialla of the Seven Tears. Meet in front of Empath Abbey and be sure to wear a monk robe. You can purchase a monk’s robe for a nominal sum from the monks at the Yew Winery. At the end of the walk, anyone who would like to may read a story they have written. The best stories will be placed in the Award Hall.

The Royal Spies meet on most Tuesdays at 8:00 PM (Central) beneath the Britain Counselors Hall in West Britain (near the bridge leading to King Blackthorn’s Castle). Everyone is invited to attend these events. The next meeting of the Royal Spies will be on 29 January 2013 at 8:00 PM (Central).
