    Dreadlords Great Privilege

    A wind came up from the Cortosi Coast and wrapped its fingers around Vel Anir, that great fortress city which bore the Dreadlords. It caressed the Walls and danced through the Anir Square, it brushed through Coriane Siurane's auburn-brown hair as she walked and made her dress of silver flutter...

    Private Tales Bastards, Beggars, and Broken Things

    Tempered though they were for the woes of war , all men grew enticed to indulge eventually; if only to forget their troubles for a time. The academy, arcane arm of Anir, a place where children ran the crucible of conjuration and, eventually, emerged as masters of magic; at least that's what...

    Fate - First Reply A Gorilla In A Suit

    Oban - The Kings Palace This was, by far, the fucking dumbest idea that Edric had ever encountered in his entire decade at the Academy. There were a dozen Initiates who could have done a better job than him. Who could have blended into this city better, who could have actually found a place...

    Dreadlords A Field of Dead Men

    "It was a good Victory, Ser." For a few seconds there was nothing, silence, only the caw of crows and the screeching cries of vulture. Then the loud squelch of a sword wrenching free from a corpse called out. "It was a slaughter." The echo of a voice projected through armor more ancient than...

    Fate - First Reply A Pile of Corpses

    "How many times has it been now, child? A hundred? A thousand? No. Not that many I think. Perhaps just a few falls short." The voice rang out. All consuming. Grasping. The only thing he could focus on. The only thing that he could hear. "You have ventured beyond the veil so many times. Felt...
  6. Raphael the Red

    Dreadlords Substitute Teacher

    This had to be the dumbest fucking thing that the asshats at the top had ever made him do. He was a weapon of war that had single-handedly wiped out entire legions. So obviously, what was the best use of his time? Apparently, babysitting a bunch of children that were all squishy ever since the...

    Dreadlords The Lies They Told

    Ayel Anen - The Falwood Liliana sat atop her steed with an expression of pure and utter boredom. They had been riding for what felt like weeks now, though the reality was more like like five or six days. Most of it had been easy going, only because the Carriage at the center of their party had...

    Dreadlords A Life Etched In Blood

    "Edric." That voice still lingered in his skull. Still echoed out even now. He could hear her voice, could see the lines on her face, could still watch the flicker of passion that ran through her eyes. It was a memory that seemed stuck in his mind, centered within his skull as though she had...

    Private Tales Dignity, Duty and Other Delusions

    [art cred] Heading west from the great walls of Vel Anir, past the more green and hilly landscape that was lush and ripe from the early spring rains, a caravan seemed to be jostling along leisurely. If one were to look closely however they would see that amid the multitude of wagons pulled by...

    Fate - First Reply Death Sails The Sea

    Akea'Oma'O Sea Wreck of The Heart of Luin Edric floated, his fingers all but clawed into a piece of wood that had once belonged to a mighty Anirian Frigate. His head was a haze, his body dehydrated, and his body bloody. Cuts and gashes lined his flesh, though they had stopped bleeding hours...

    Dreadlords Young Relic | Vel Anir

    Faint footfalls, treading over broken steel and bone. Fetid flesh, rotting dead, all left in the wake of his desire. Power. Many years had now passed since he had last laid eyes upon his home, but not even such absence stirred any longing in him. Neither did it stir any contempt, and in fact...

    Private Tales The Party Never Stops

    Alliria - Grand Crescent Hotel Liliana slowly painted the color upon her lips, staring into the mirror with a satisfied smile. There was something so utterly wonderful about being herself. She couldn't even remember the last time she had actually been allowed to dress up. When the chains of...

    Fable - Ask The Trial of A Dreadlord

    Vel Osgen "The Demon King, huh?" Siena said the words as he stared at the man behind the bars, her expression neutral as he looked up at her. A wry smile touched his face, the chains around his throat and tied to his hands rattling slightly as he slowly shook his head. He had the look of a wolf...

    Private Tales If It Bleeds

    [art creds] The small town of Lahiri was right on the border of the Falwood. Because the majority of it’s occupants were human, it had been claimed by Vel Anir. There were plenty of whispered rumors that Lahiri pledged allegiance to Vel Anir long ago because during the second war it was clear...

    Fate - First Reply Butchery[Dreadlords]

    Aina O Ka La - 17 Months Before Present Day Crimson waters lapped against the beach, bodies washing ashore mixed among the driftwood. Sand was dyed a deep red, the baking sun cooking the corpses which lay scattered upon the dunes. Edric watched the sight, crouched down and arms resting on his...

    Fable - Ask The Only Thing They Fear Is You

    [art cred] Boats were meant to be burned and destroyed, Everleigh realized. The great Galleon ship, Pasiphae, was sinking and burning at the same time as Everleigh dodged a major burst of fire that caught the slow group of sailors that thought following her would be a good thing. They weren’t...

    Fate - First Reply The Fate of Us All

    Wissburg - Formerly Vel Orius Edric stared silently up at the tree standing besides the road, his heart slowly beating in his chest, his stomach half turned upside down. Eight corpses. That was what he counted hanging from the tree. Four of them were men, three women, and one whose body was...

    Vel Kurez. The city had been a ghost since the revolution. While the main battle had raged in Vel Anir, splinter forces of the revolution had sought the weapons stored in this academic bastion. Some such weapons, however, were volatile. Now the buildings crumbled and the arches hung bare and...

    Fable - Ask Terse Words

    Vel Akaten Eleanor Edric leaned forward over the neck of his horse, the sound of thundering hooves echoing out from beneath and to the right. They had been riding for nearly two days non-stop now, pushing the horses to near death. Only touches of magic and infusions of potions had kept the...
