  1. Tarkas Verik

    Fate - First Reply Pillars of Faith, Pyres of Fire

    A rendezvous met. His hateful eyes glared as the pyres burned, his helmet held at his side. The pyres were lined up perfectly, each holding the body of a slain Anirian Guardsmen. They were part of the Eastern Barracks, responsible for a large portion of the city wall. In total, 27 soldiers...
  2. Ein

    Private Tales The Weight of a Generation

    Savannah "Look." Ein's voice could barely be heard over the sound of wind that rushed over the cliff face, the lands below seeming utterly peaceful as he spoke. "I don't want to push you. You don't want me to push you." His hand rested on a man's shoulder. Bindings cuffed the man's arms behind...

    Private Tales New Responsibilities

    Amroe - Formerly Vel Aren Aisling Weiroon Ein slowly turned his head, eyes flickering around the open square as he jumped down from the shotgun seat of the carriage. His gaze swept over the small crowd which seemed to be strolling around them, catching on no one in particular. The people here...
  4. Fernando Matos

    Dreadlords Therapy Sessions

    Fernando sat down at one end of the small, round, table he'd requested from the incredibly helpful staff at the academy. Everywhere he went there was a Proctor giving him their two cents or offering a bit of constructive advice in dealing with the students. Many of their methods seemed...
  5. Eleanor

    Private Tales Reconciliation

    Alliria. One of the grandest cities in the world. Eleanor had never been to Alliria before and she was excited that she had been selected for this mission. The mission was a strange one, but she was not one to question orders. They had been sent here to gather information on a merchant who had...
  6. Edric

    Private Tales The Failure of Nobility

    Amol-Kalit: The Great Dune Sea Sweat dripped from Edric's brow, his fingers clutching tightly to the near empty waterskin that hung from his belt. His head lulled slightly as he tried to peer further into the desert, searching desperately for any sign of green or blue. There was a haze in the...
  7. Liliana

    Fable - Ask Unwinding Threads

    Vel Luin "This is so BORING." Liliana lamented, chin resting in her hand as she sat just outside Warehouse 316A on the docks of Vel Luin. "My parents didn't send me to the Academy to become a guard." She continued to complain. "This is ludicrous." She had only been on duty with the others for...
  8. Liliana

    Fate - First Reply Crimson Trails

    Southern Cortosi Isles - The Confiance "Initiate Lorel. Would you like to join everyone else for the briefing?" Liliana slowly turned her head towards the voice trying to draw her attention, lips thinning for a brief moment as she noticed Naval Captain Elbrecht standing expectantly in the...
  9. Charon

    Fable - Ask Blood on the Water

    Vel Luin. Nowadays it was far more fortress than city, a monument to Anirian "progress" and strength. That, of course, was not to say that it wasn't still a port city, a trade hub. And trade hubs tended to draw the attention of...undesirables. While the primary harbor might've been extremely...
  10. Chasmine

    Fable - Ask A Spectral Howl

    The old forest. Not a place most occupants of the Dreadlord Academy frequented of their own volition. Few paths existed save the ones used to tread between distant academic building or graveyard. To forge off the paths was to take ones life in their hands, for there was more than simply...
  11. Liliana

    Fable - Ask Retaliation

    Vel Innis Perched upon a large boulder, Liliana Lorel inspected her nails. "Honestly." Her tone was about as disinterested and listless as possible, the lack of enthusiasm almost so grating that it was hard to listen to. She paid little mind to the man that they had bundled on the ground. His...
  12. Chasmine

    Fable - Ask A little slice of life [Dreadkids]

    The day was overcast but warm, the sort of afternoon a student of the Academy could likely be found spending free period out and about to enjoy the break between days of rain. Chasmine was one such student, but unlike many of the others milling about and being useless, as the Proctors liked to...
  13. Mars Pallatrix

    Fable - Ask First Annual Solstice Ball [Dreadlords]

    They weren't kidding. When the Guardsmen had proposed that they throw a formal ball for the Apprentices, Mars had laughed. It was no joke. Prior to the ball, seamstresses were brought (blindfolded, of course) onto the castle grounds to size the students for their outfits, then they left. When...
  14. Edric

    Fate - First Reply Captured

    Easter Cortos - Alesa - Army Camp Edric spat blood onto the floor. His head lulled back and forth, mind in half a daze. He felt fingers bury in his hair, scrunch closed, and then rip his gaze upwards. The swelling in his eyes made it almost impossible to see, but he didn't need his vision to...
  15. Mars Pallatrix

    Private Tales Platinum and Blood

    Iron Maiden. Epithets were a great honor bestowed upon the most renowned, successful Dreadlords. It was a testament to an individual's might and reserved for those that have committed only the most heinous of atrocities against their fellow man. So, when Mars Pallatrix learned that Noel's peers...
  16. Elise Virak

    Fable - Ask The Long Road

    Lir Highway Elise sat back in her carriage, eyes cast out of the small window within the door. A Dreadlord Initiate stood there, his back straight, his shoulders square, and his face desperately attempting to hide the nerves he must have been feeling in that moment. She didn't know his name...
  17. Ania

    Private Tales Home is where the Heart is

    Thorne Vel Odwyk During the revolution Ania had been hellbent on ensuring that the old ways persevered. That Vel Anir survived exactly as it had for thousands of years prior. It was like a religion to her. Like a cultish devotion that she had to serve lest the entirety of social order...
  18. Mars Pallatrix

    Fable - Ask Proctors of the Academy

    "What is that?" Mars Pallatrix asked, knowing full well that the bottle that had just been put in front of him was a variety of liquor. It was late, just past midnight, and in a few hours, the slumbering bodies within the castle would begin to stir as they went about their morning routines. A...
  19. Edric

    Fable - Ask In The Rubble[Dreadlords]

    Vel Acan "So much for the new Vel Anir." Edric said as he kicked the head of a marble statue that lay scattered across the now destroyed Courtyard. Once upon a time Vel Acan had been a center of power within the Anirians lands. The city had been small, but important. It was here that many...
  20. Edric

    Fable - Ask The New Generation

    Outside Vel Anir - Dreadlord Academy Edric sat on the edge of the central courtyard, a rock bouncing in his palm as he stared ahead. His eyes were practically glazed over, staring through the dozens of combatants arrayed against one another. Most of them were his age, or around there, some...
