Trialante and the Woodbine Lyceum

The sound of sparrows graced the Serenwilde forest in the month of Kiani, 484 years after the Coming of Estarra. The brown and silver birds flew in flocks across the forest skies and attracted the attention of a number of Serens. Curious about the unusual visitation, Serens fanned out to try to find the birds. Before long, Vates Arboreal Anita discovered a method to coax the birds to trust her, and with the help of Elissata, Minkahmet, Orimi, Bandeon, Aknarin and Ejderha, she was able to attract a flock of the melodic sparrows. And yet, Serens were not sure what ...

Love on the Rocks

Wedding bells rang discordantly across the Basin of Life, announcing in a celebratory dirge-like fashion the joining of a viscanti woman to an orclach man. But the supposed marital bliss was short-lived as Hethklyff Ruag took his newly-wedded bride to her new home. Caithryn Ruag's shrill, dissatisfied shrieking could pierce of the veil of death and awaken corpses worldwide with its high-pitched disdain. Early on the scene, Spirit Warden Xenthos An'Ryshe arrived to find Hethklyff pacing and in a state of frayed nerves. Chaplain of the Damned, Marcella n'Lochli, Marquis Mrak n'Kylbar and Ritualist of Undeath, Rezekir soon followed with ...

Bad for Business

(as heard from the mouth of Deotathi Miim) Oh, sure, city of Freedom, where anyone is FREE to muscle in on my market. What's this Kahn Lucas got that I haven't anyway? A sob story and magic potion? Hmph. No, tried and true wares is what I got. Countess Dys Mzithrei at least understands that, tried and true enlightened wares, that's what! Not some gimmick and a sniffles tale. The Steward, Lady Enadonella, Marquessa Vyell and Kalea were quick to try and help the sniveling dodo bird, with his promises of a good time and vengeance on our most hated ...

How Servants Pass the Time

Roarkian 14th, 480 CE: Getting lost while trying to find help is bound to make anyone a frustrated, weeping mess, right? Poor girl, this Moana Cracy, she arrived in quite the state of upset already. Things were uncertain when our own Heart of the Crescendo, Marquessa Xeii Shevat, could not calm the woman but as we learned of her story, it was understandable. She became a tracker after the destruction of her family home by orcs, who we now know are the same that inhabit Mount Krog and assail previous citizens of our Beacon of Harmony. At this, my own ...

Wish you were here – love, Nirena

Dear uncle, How's yer leg? I hope my cousins aren't giving ye too much trouble lately. Anyways, ye wouldn't believe the things that have happened to me since the beginning of the year! I know ye always shook yer head at my hunting and tracking ways. "Settle down to a real business", ye always said, "Nothing good will come of sitting around in trees for hours on end!" Well, uncle, I think ye'd be pleased that I've proven you wrong! Remember how I used to play Tribes of the Forest with me cousins when I was a little kid? How ...

The Testimony of Baeroc Spineson

From a testimonial pasted in Stewartsville and then very quickly taken down: Baeroc was a simple man, a weaver, oh yes, before his glorious transformation: a simple man from the Stewartsville outskirts who did not know the blessing he was given when the glorious greev spores blew past his cottage, when he was seeded with the Wyrd. Baeroc was a frightened man back then. Oh yes. He wandered into Glomdoring forest for aid, not knowing that he had already been aided. He was caught in the blessed webs of the spiders, and frightened man he was, he screamed for help. ...

The Essence of War

Refusing defeat, Sirsia Pois arranged the robbery of Celest's schematics and, with Countess Kalas Cyna's permission, proceeded to build their own machine for the Engine to harness dark essence to re-taint the Inner Sea. After additional inspection, she found a flaw in the schematics and utilising wood and dark essence, fashioned a weapon that could disrupt the Celestian contraption, rendering it useless for a day. She remitted the weapon to Countess Kalas Cyna and Understudy Ouphe i'Vipere with strict instructions on how to use it and to take care not to lose it as it was unique and an example ...

Purification Backup Plans

Though not immediately noticed, a dead fish arising from the foulness of the Sea, gave Velho Caleb Luminare much pause and he immediately requested guidance of his fellow citizens. Student Laurent and Duchess Auriella took to arms with many questions, but more urgently, seeking solutions. Laurent began by speaking with Lanikai, who seemed to not understand how the waters could be so foul yet she felt no illness herself. Caleb turned to Skerriagh, the Lord of the High Tide who found nothing amiss. The puzzle grew as answers diminished. The Duchess Auriella felt action was needed and journeyed to the ...

Tainted Promises

On an otherwise normal day for the Engine of Transformation, one Sirsia Pois arrived and a deal was struck with the Warlord, Avurekhos Feyranti, and the Chaplain, Marcella n'Lochli to deliver a miraculous feat that would spread the Taint and the Glory of Magnagora further. Despite Sirsia Pois' own doubts about the true strength of the citizens, their prompt and swift acquisition of the necessary materials to accomplish the goals ahead impressed her despite herself. To solidify the new alliance, she offered herself to the Engine and was welcomed as a citizen. There was a necessary secrecy to the events ...

Digging a New Life

Grumbles and grunts echoed across the Basin as gruff orc-like voices shouted about their hard work to the unmoved demands of an orclach. Spirit Warden Xenthos An'Ryshe, Spider-tender Athree, Chaplain Marcella n'Lochli were the firsts to arrive, soon followed by Countess Kalas Cyna. The orclach in charge, Hethklyff Ruag, explained the incompetence of the hired orcs and their refusal to continue to dig having hit something "too 'ard master". Soon the excavation site for Hethklyff's new home was a flurry of mud and dirt, as everyone helped dig in. Layers of gravediggers upon gravediggers and rockeaters did not deter the ...

Newsletter July 2017

Lusternia Gets a Facelift Website Facelift! Check out the new website. We've updated the entire look and feel which should be sleeker and easier to navigate around. Most especially, the new Portal page is an easy access interface to view in-game news, messages and logs. Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to resolve the artisanal/bardic section and therefore are pausing these contests until we come to an arrangement that works best for everyone. Note that we will probably combine the bardic contest with the library contest and keep it all in-game. Be sure to check out the audiobooks in ...

Trialante, the Untamed Muse

It was Avechary, 477 years after the Coming of Estarra, and the word in the Serenwilde was sparrows: Sparrows on the ground and sparrows in the trees and sparrows up in the sky. They sang a song that rang in the hearts of Serens who were present in the forest. Along with the sparrow song, there rose the lovely voice of a fae, and the songs' harmonies led Serens to begin to search for their source. Kerith Sweetpaw was the first to come upon Little Lleucu, a will-o-wisp fae, in the ruins of the former Spiritsinger Guildhall. The fae was ...

Battle for the Wheel

Hail Basin, I, Lebo Needles, have requested and been sanctioned to allow this report for the Order of Shallach to be seen by all. It is rather rudimentary; I am still getting used to writing reports, but I hope it suffices and informs anyone who could not be present in Lirangsha.
