Challenge of Nature

Early morning of the 16th of Juliary, 523 CoE, saw challengers gathered at Avechna's Peak to take part in the Trial of Nature. Receiving a peculiar bioengineered plant, they have set off to cleanse the Basin of Life from remainders of Lyraan presence to strengthen the Seal of Nature. The first to find a clue was Kish but it was a while before anyone, including Kish, figured out their clues from that point onwards. Afternoon came by the time Dys Mzithrei, Tarken, and Ayisdra made any progress and it was almost midnight before Unitos and Allixea made their first finds. ...

Challenge of Harmony

After Chaos, the Seal of Harmony came under contention. Contestants throughout Lusternia rose up with their voices to win hearts and minds of the denizens of the land. Though Jolanthe of Gaudiguch was the first to make her voice heard, Yendor, Enadonella, and Leticia of Glomdoring soon overtook her, followed by Ixion and Vatul of Magnagora. Yendor became the leading speaker of Harmony through most of the period of the Trial, while Jolanthe and Leticia vied back and forth for third, and the same for Vatul and Ixion for fifth place. In the end, Enadonella overtook Yendor in her words ...

Challenge of Chaos

The crash of the Lyraa Ey Rielys aetherbubble into Lusternia and its subsequent ripping away by Queenie of the Gnafia caused the fabric of reality to fray once more. Again the Nine Seals that held back the Soulless Kethuru were weakened. Thus the Trials to reinforce the Seals begin once more. The first Seal was of Chaos. Adventurers across Lusternia rose up to seek and catch the Purple Hamster of Chaos, who imbued all those who held her with growing madness. Tarken of Glomdoring was the first to find her, but despite holding her for nearly half a Lusternian day, ...

Ascension 2019! Ascension 2019! During the Elder Wars, the Goddess Kaenalye was hidden in a bubble of alternate reality known as Lyraa Ey Rielys, which was out of phase from the rest of reality; thus, hiding her from the Soulless Gods. However, this secure zone also became her prison, as she was trapped there through the aeons. Like many Elder Gods before her, her form splintered. These divine splinters solidified into a new mortal race, known as the kaelye. The ecosystem that formed in Lyraa Ey Rielys was completely alien from that of the First World. When Lyraa Ey Rielys ...

Year in Contemplation: 2018

There once was a man who was not a young man, who once thought he would write stories but his writings were unfinished or lacking, who once dreamt big dreams but they drifted away as many dreams do. His life was not unfulfilled; he found work that he was good at, fell in love with another man with whom he'd find much happiness, and generally lived a life that was prosperous and filled with many friends and accomplishments. One day, back when computers were young and modems blared like sobbing sirens, this man found incredible games in worlds of text, ...

How to Rescue Aetherbubbles and Catch Up with Old Friends

The brave adventurers had broken through all of Queenie's defenses at the Facility save the last lines of defense upon the Aetherlasso itself. The Aetherlasso, which was tasked with pulling the Lyraa Ey Rielys aetherbubble towards the Facility, did not look at all like its more conventional namesake. Instead, it was an object bearing layers of concentric rings made of platinum, steel, iron, silver, and gold from the outside in. They set about peeling back the defenses of each of the rings, which corresponded to its operations on the planes of Astral, Cosmic, Elemental, Ethereal, and Prime respectively. Xenthos of ...

Professor von Fixit and the Aetherlasso of Doom

Psionic waves crashed through the Prime Material Plane. Though at first perplexing, they soon revealed their origin, as the thousand linorii glowbats that had invaded Lusternia over the passing years spoke in unison. Hello? Help! This is Taimi, we're being pulled somewhere. We can see light. Many came to witness these panicked messages, including Sir Romaan D'Varden of New Celest, Alaksanteri Elithysius of Gaudiguch, Kish of Hallifax and a contingent from the Glomdoring Commune. Following Taimi's crackling words, they set out to work out where Lyraa Ey Rielys was, how it was being pulled, and where. It was Xenthos An'Ryshe ...

A Collision Averted, and Wilds Displaced

A droning, sonorous hum filled all of Creation, cresting into a wave of vibrations that shook reality itself, blurring everything for a split second. The pressure that had been so present over the past months returned, even stronger than before. Throughout the cities and communes, the Keepers of the Nexii strained, as did their charges. And one by one, the nexii surged, casting out the power that had been so devoutly gathered by their servants and sent forth to bolster the boundaries of reality. Combining into one, it seemed that this great power from the nexii was enough to stabilise ...

A Mysterious Shattering and to Read A Shard of Glass

As the world continued to experience a variety of disconcerting anomalies, the sound of shattering glass echoed from somewhere on Avechna's Peak. A squeak of alarm followed it - and then silence. Though a number of people explored the Peak to seek out the source of the sound, including a cautious investigation from a distance by Dys Mzithrei of Gaudiguch, it was Coraline Myeras of Serenwilde who stumbled upon something strange within the Peak. Whilst standing at the Aetherplex, she observed a gnome in a white suit stepping out of a portal. Their exchange was brief, with the gnome - ...

A Catastrophic Collision and the Conclave of the Keepers

With the departure of the kaelye to their homeland, there seemed to be as many questions around the years-long events involving the flora and fauna of Lyraa Ey Rielys as there had been answers. The Basin of Life, as it so often does, had fallen into the tension of waiting. Waiting for something to happen. When it came, it was at first a distant, piercing sound. As this sound grew, the Nexus Keepers - those women and men devoted to guarding the Nexuses of Power raised at the heart of every commune and city - began to experience extreme discomfort. ...

Going Home

As the last of her people returned to the kaelye basecamp aided by the peoples of Lusternia, Taimi Kivinen turned her mind to growing a ship from the algontherine egg that Tridemon of New Celest had given her. Not being an expert in the manipulation of creature traits, Taimi employed the services of the kaelye 'Shapers' who came with her. Taimi explained to interested citizens of the Basin of Life that Shapers were a special sect of kaelye who were adept at manipulating and changing the traits of living things. Thus, Taimi left the egg with the Shapers, who were ...
