The Dark & The Light - In Midnight Clad

Postby Dellam » Tue Apr 19, 2016 11:40 am

A faint quake is felt...just about everywhere. A gentle rocking just enough to disturb water and be felt through ones feet.


On the plains of Noore I'Meles

Tavinton opened his eyes, looking into his arms and the baggy robes on them as they covered his head while he kept in his protective crouch. He didn't even know why he'd had such an urge. He'd never felt such a thing before. There were alot of other new emotions, sensations, he simply didn't have words for yet. This was...confusing? He wasn't sure what that word was yet either but there it was. It was confusing. Slowly he levered himself up out of the position he'd moved himself to and stood blinking in the noonday sun. He stood on a patch of absolutely perfect grass in what was otherwise mostly barren terrain. The path was maybe 30 feet across and roughly circular and it definitely had not been there before. Nor had the rodera who was stood upon it. Anyone viewing from outside, if there had been anyone around, would have noticed his fur colour transitioning from a bright gold to a deep brown and yet such didn't even seem to be in his own realization. Instead he just turned in a slow circle, more and more of the so-called confusion becoming apparent on his features. Evidently he was not where he had been before and there didn't seem to be much else around except for what maybe could have been a city with a pair of towers some distance off? Not having much else he could do he decided to head that way. Maybe they would know where he was...and what he was feeling.


An Alley in Damn Town

"I'm free! Thank the Gods I'm free!"
The aging human man cried, his skin hugging tight to his bones as he danced from foot to foot, jangling the manacles still locked about his ankles. The alley he had mysteriously appeared in now looked like a mesh between the actual buildings around it but sported a fresh new grey dusty earth floor and had a large rock half buried in the wall of one structure as if it had always been there. The human didn't seem to care about that though as he moved towards the light, happier than he had been in years. He was still smiling when he went face down on the floor, unconscious. He didn't even get to see the manacles being stolen off his ankles...or his loincloth being stolen as well. What a start to a new life eh?

The disruptions grow stronger and more frequent. Some have no effect at all beyond being noticeable by any with sense power as bursts of light and shadow magic but where things appear and disappear as previously encountered the scale of events is greatly pronounced.

Sinya Palurin

A stretch of road 2 miles long vanishes, an ashen grey stretch of dirt land left in its wake and the plants on either side left dead and warped. For 3 days after anyone who crosses the stretch feels like eyes watch them from every shadow and everyone who sees it outright refuses to traverse it at night. A trade caravan that assumedly had been on the road at the time of this latest magical pulse never arrives at its destination. An investigation sent out finds not a single sign of its passage or fate.

Mount Heart

In a blaze of light a single structure appears on side of the mound that was Mount Heart before it was smashed back into its place in the world on top of the Heartlands. It seems to be little more than a house. Wood construction, two floors, perfectly built and functional. For a time anyone who passes by the base of the Mount finds themselves overwhelmed with positive emotions as if their negative ones never existed at all. Once the phenomenon is noticed to a larger extent small groups of goodmen are observed lurking in the area, this sensation becoming almost intoxicating to those who have known ahrd lives and seen so much death.

Everyone, from the lowliest goodman to the most powerful heroes feels it now, the world itself straining around the edges. The quakes that follow are the most violent upheaval yet and they are felt everywhere. Like 3 waves of tremors that knock over more poorly built structures and take people from their feet, much damage is left in their wake. When they pass those who do have sense Power can feel the damage to the world itself, light and shadow magic ever present and far closer than they ought to be at all moments without any clear source. While their seems to have been no shifting of landscape or people this time faint after images can be seen in places, like the world itself has become thin and stretched over other places.

From The Tower of Light in Noor I'Meles a magical missive is sent out to all corners of the world:

To All the Peoples of Velmaneth,

The tremors that have been felt are a result of a weakening of the barriers that separate this world from others. Despite our best efforts here we have not been able to halt this process and have come to the conclusion that it is being caused from somewhere in the Shadow Plane. I am preparing a ritual to transport any who can get here as soon as possible to that world to fix whatever is happening. I know not the dangers you will find but if you are able, come to the Tower of Light in Noor I'Meles at once.

Vynrael, High Priest of Asternia, Annointed One of The Sentinels, Councilman of Noor I'Meles.

P.S. Once you enter the city, its the tower on the right. It's not very clearly marked.
