World Plot: Radiation Spread

Postby Ben » Mon Mar 29, 2010 12:53 pm

There are three states of matter. Earth goes where you put it. Water goes where it is able. Air goes wherever it likes.

If you put a rock in a room it will stay where you leave it. Put some water in a room and it will run to the lowest point and then stay there. Let a little smoke into one part of a room and it will soon be found in every corner, high or low.

Earth is content, water hides and air reaches for the stars.

With this in mind one might be perplexed by the progress of the pink mist since the removal of the magical barrier protecting Pathway. Although it was spreading out from the Heartlands it was doing so very slowly, moving a matter of feet over the past few hours. Quicker than the continental drift of Earth, more like the speed of the tides of Water.

Those monitoring the spread of the radiation estimate that it is spreading an inch every five minutes.

This might help

“The Gods have forsaken us because we do not show them due reverence!” these were the words of the preacher surrounded by many of the inhabitants of Pathway. “Only by remaining here, steadfast and resolute do we show them how strong our belief is!” a murmur spread through the crowd “brothers and sisters, stand with me, let the mist come and the gods will see our faith and return to us” the murmur increased in speed and volume as did the preacher. “Only action will show our faith, the Gods will return, save the city and cleanse the Heartlands. I know that the truly faithful will stand with me in the for they have faith”. A cheer went up.

That was nearly a month ago now and though many left, many more remained behind.

Those who remained followed the preacher to the southern fort where they would meet the mist head on and there they prayed and celebrated and rejoiced in the knowledge that the gods would return even as the mist reached their walls. Over the next week the mist crept around the fort, surrounding it and pushing on to the eastern and western forts and still they kept faith. It did not breach the walls and this was seen as a sign that they were blessed by the gods. Many stood on the walls, watching as the magenta sea of mist washed around their bastion slowly climbing higher and higher up the walls.

As it reached the battlements the faithful were rewarded as the realm of faith was restored and the gods returned. A cheer went up, a cheer that was cut off by coughing and screaming as the mist flowed over the walls engulfing all within in its overpowering magic.

The Western fort had been abandoned but the pragmatic few who had remained in the most northernly Eastern fort in order to see the outcome but ready to leave at a moment's notice heard the screams and headed north into Sinya Palurin leaving behind the forts of Pathway, now home only to the magical abominations of the mist.

Four weeks have passed since the final evacuation of Pathway.
28 days
672 hours
40320 minutes

The mist continues to spread, Fort Drake and those within are now cut off from the rest of Velmaneth: kept safe by the protective bubble of the veil.
