Glory to the Glowbats

Curiously, the strange growing sinkers found across the land appear to be affected by some mysterious ailment, causing them to first solidify and then explode into numerous glowbats! As if this wasn't peculiar enough, the ailment causes the sinkers to become stunted in their growth, leaving them small and devoid of the tangled threads... Six researchers have made it known that they have an interest in studying these glowbats, one for each city or commune. But for those who wish to conduct fieldwork for them, take note: the manner in which you collect the glowbats for your respective researcher will ...

A Whale of a Tale

Suddenly, and against all probability, a void-whale manifested in the skies above Mount Avechna. Nearly slamming into its peak, the creature took flight across the Basin of Life, littering the ground with pieces of itself that had broken off during its reentry. Its wandering was not long, however. Attracted by the scent of a particularly potent pitcher plant, the void-whale crashed into the Lava Gardens in Gaudiguch. Too weak and battered to take flight once more, the pitiful creature was aided by Malarious, Esoneyuna Talnara, Kistan Rithel of Gaudiguch and a curious Xenthos An'Ryshe of Glomdoring. Together they helped the ...

Threads, Fall and Rise

Strange weather. The people of the Basin of Life had thought that the rain of bouncing balls from the lightning-splashed sky was the end of it. But in Shanthin, 505 years after the Coming of Estarra, reality shook once more, and the very ground began to sprout with tangles of blue-green shimmering thread, which spread like wildfire through the cities and communes of the Basin and the wilds between. Nobody knew what they were or where they came from originally, and theories abounded. The threads grew from depressions in the ground centred on round, glowing cores. Sinkers, some called them, ...

Transmological Visions

While sinkers and threads plagued the Basin of Life, transmologists were plagued by a vision of the threads unearthing something looking like a box or a chest. Soon, the visions came true, and a chest was found off of a spectre-filled island. Mosachi Xeeth of Gaudiguch claimed to potentially have some knowledge as to the chest, providing a key with which to unlock it. Within, a curious looking document was discovered, although Mosachi believed there was more than met the eye. With Alaksanteri's aide, Mosachi had an equally curious flower planted within the City of Freedom. Believing that the document ...

Peculiar Weather and Other Oddities Peculiar Weather and Other Oddities When the skies cracked open with blue-purple lightning, the very atoms of reality shifted, and strange shapes and stars shifted in and out of view upon the firmament. This led to a rain of strange bouncing balls that seemed to have value for at least one gnome who visited the Basin of Life. Was any of this connected to the strange explosions that later rocked the mines and Undervault?  Read more. Invasion of the Sinkers After the strange hail of bouncing balls subsided, strange glowing sinkers sprouted throughout the Basin ...

Peculiar Weather and Other Oddities

In Avechary of the year 503 after the Coming of Estarra, the skies of Lusternia cracked open with blue-purple lightning. The very atoms of reality shifted, and strange shapes and stars shifted in and out of view upon the firmament. While the inhabitants of the Basin of Life were reeling from these strange circumstances, a rain of bouncing balls began to fall from the roiling skies, with no hint as to their origins. The dense, elastic spheres bounced everywhere throughout the Basin of Life, finding their way to the most unlikely of places. Capitalising on the appearance of the spheres, ...

Calling Home Lord Nocht

Recently, a concerned muted slaugh approached Xenthos An'Ryshe within the Glomdoring forest, asking if he'd heard from the Silent Lord in recent times. Soon joined by Eliron Shee-Slaugh, a former member of His Order, both confirmed that they had no news to share. As the slaugh expressed her concern, and the gathering grew further, it was proposed that summoning Mother Night might lead to answers. Unfortunately the moon was not yet in the right position for this to happen, and so an alternative approach of a visit to Lhiannan, the Queen of the Slaugh, was instead chosen. Lhiannan shared her ...

The Mists of Serenwilde

A brilliant flash and massive crashing heralded a massive opening in the sky, and from it a comet of tenebrous mist fell to the Serenwilde forest. Those first to the scene were quick to find within the Centaur Hills an odd, dancing wisp of black mist with a flame within. After interacting with it, those of the Verdant Land seemed to realise it responded to their actions almost curiously, perhaps cautiously, but were quick to scare it off with a burst of fireworks. Soon thereafter, the true presence behind this commotion made his presence known however. A being who made ...

Magnagora and New Celest Artwork

We commissioned some concept art for two of the original cities in Lusternia. First up is Magnagora, where the artist captured the dark, polluted, urban cityscape centered around the Megalith of Doom, seen rising through the tainted air in the background. For Celest, spiral shell towers frame the sea-inspired architecture in soft blues, whites and golds, and the Pool of Stars is seen on the side shooting a stream of Light towards the heavens. We are very pleased with these pieces and have already put them to good use on the website. The reveals were released on Twitter through a ...

Ascension of Deichtine Ysav'rai The Ascension That Failed When Avechna called the Final Ascension Challenge forth, the High Prophet Ghani n'Rotri swooped in and stole the Staff of Ascension for himself, and began to ascend as an Avatar of Kethuru. This had been Ghani n'Rotri's plan all along - his destiny as was writ in the Verses of Magnora - as his repeated efforts to gather power and spread chaos throughout the First World during the last several years were to build an Orrery upon the silent astrosphere of Ophiuchius. The Ascension had failed and it was up to the ...

Verses of Magnora, MXXXIV: "Within the serpent's habitat shall mortals step before he dies" And so they did; but not without a Trial.
