Rise of the Reach

Postby SatyrGrey » Sat Dec 30, 2017 6:12 am

This is mostly a personal storyline, but I have chosen to involve others in a rather.... interesting way.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A new power is coming to rise within the reach, and they want the world of Eyr to know about it. The first message has been laid bare to the Moei Asing through a crucified skeleton. It bares the words "I am" crudely carved into the bone of the skull.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The FIRST skeleton:

The bones seem to have been exposed for around a year, but well preserved. However, they have burns that appear to have been made by some sort of acid (FLESH EATING MIST!) They are clean of every speck of muscle and other tissues, save for those keeping the bones themselves together. There have been no tool marks left behind from those efforts. The words themselves, "I Am" seem to be the main message. The only clue as to who is behind this message would be the Void Energy swirling within the rib cage--- only one place on Eyr harbors such violent and virulent energy.

There are NO sighs of tracks, scents, or other indicators of whomever left this skeleton.

The Void Energy:

While the swirling wisps within the ribcage seem to merely exist, they too have a message to give. Any person making an attempt to touch the skeleton will be meet with an attempt to be infected by the void energy. It will reach out! If it fails, it will return to the rib cage. If it succeeds, the person will become infected by the Void Taint and a new batch of Void energy will return after 24 hours-- unless the skeleton is destroyed.

ROLL TABLE:::

1-10: The absolute WORST!!! Not only do you get the intoxicating rush of dark energy, but will likely descend into the madness of unrestrained evil. On top of this, You hear TWO voices, a masculine voice tempting you to the reach, and a genderless voice fueling all the evil that could ever be imaginable to take root within you.

11-25: Not quite as bad as if your will had not been able to put up SOME resistance, there is still an incredibly inviting rush of power, but no whisper. Instead, the Taint will act upon your own inner alignment, moving the good to do bad, and the bad to do their worst.

26-50: The rush of dark power is also accompanied by masculine whispers that seem to lure you right to the reach!

51-100: No taint! LUCKY YOU!!!

Rolling is not required, and you are free to RP at your own discretion.

THINGS TO KNOW
[*] Good aligned will be slowly tempted to do evil things.
[*] Evil aligned will be slowly tempted to be even more evil, and quite possibly insane.
[*] The taint can only take as strong a hold as your race is able to be corrupted.
[*] Undead, Wraiths/Spirits are emboldened by the Void Energy, and may feel someone calling to them from the Reach itself.
[*] The longer you stay tainted, the stronger effect it will have on you, and the harder it will be to remove.
[*] HOLY magic is needed to purge a tainted person.
[*] HOLY/LIGHT is needed to destroy the free floating energy from the skeletons.

THE LONGER YOU ARE TAINTED, THE STRONGER THE EFFECTS, THE HARDER IT IS TO BE PURGED OF THE TAINT!!!

PLEASE seek out JulianSubatoi or Eirrwen on what it is like to be Void Tainted.

A new copse has been erected,this time, the word 'Coming' is the message and aimed the Deepers.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

About the corpse:

The rotting corpse is clearly of a male merfolk, less preserved than one would like. Huge gaping holes span the skinless remains, each with their own tendrils of dark Taint wiggling and calling for someone to claim it. Fins have been removed, and the word 'Coming' crudely carved into the forehead.


The Void Energy:

While the wriggling tendrils may seem only for show, they are as violently seeking to spread their taint as the wisps of Moei skeleton was. If it succeeds in spreading, the person will become infected by the Void Taint and a new batch of Void energy will return after 24 hours-- unless the skeleton is destroyed.

The last of the skellies is out! There is no Void taint this time, only the energy of the void used and placed within the corpse to give it unlife!

A rotting Drow corpse stands erected for you and the Salty Swallow--- Tied to the very post announcing the name of the establishment. Smelling putrid as any corpse left to rot in the jungle heat. But, unlike a normal corpse, it seems to move and speak "For you...... For them..... For everyone..." over and over and over! It's one eye dangling from the socket while the other is but the glow of Void energy.

A Ghoul. A ghoul tasks to give this message.

It will make no move to attack, harm, or otherwise move--- only to start SCREAMING its message if touched or harmed.
