Background: Draconis Tielvar Plot

Postby RDB » Wed Feb 02, 2011 9:03 pm

At the trading ground of dragonkin, Arrat, a rushed meeting has been called. Strange markings on the ground have appeared with no explanation. The great dragons are becoming increasingly weak with no word from Celeste, the life elf sent to seek assistance to return them to Eremine and / or restore their health and freedom. The relative peace has turned to distrust as nobody speaks of anything that explains the markings. Those that remain silent are eyed with suspicion, those that speak of shadows and feelings of being watched are listened to with disbelief from those that have not experienced the odd goings-on.

The meeting ends with no conclusion. What was once a race united becomes a race where each thinks only for himself. Nobody can be trusted.

A few days later posters appear on trees around Arrat. They read as follows:

WANTED

Informants to the Higher Order of the Dragons

Anyone seeking information relating to the mysterious gridlines appearing across the island should report to Gaflin the Great. Betrayal is among us. All suspicious behaviour should be reported immediately.

Reward, free trading at Arrat for life.


To those that could read, this was odd for several reasons. Nobody had ever heard of Gaflin the Great or an Order of the Dragons. More perplexingly, trading at Arrat had always been free anyway. Was this poster a prank? Why would someone waste valuable resources in creating them all? Where could Gaflin the Great be found? What is the betrayal mentioned?

The following dawn at the entrance to Arrat, a figure appeared to be gesturing to persons unseen as if directing them. Within minutes a large perimeter fence had surrounded the sacred trading ground. Shadows of men toiling could be seen, their sweat smelt and their voices singing as they worked could be heard although nobody could hear exactly what the words were. When all was completed, the figure hung a sign at the entrance.

Elsewhere on the island, in a cavern on the side of a mountain higher than all the others with a view over all the island, a fire flickers. Just a few flames left and it will be out completely. Back at Arrat the stooped figure of a man senses the fire losing it's power and smiles. Not long now, not long and they will come.
