    Fable - Ask The Road of Condemnation

    The path from Vel'Anir along the Cortosi coastline was long, and it hugged the shoreline. When the tides went out, the path stank and some of the Guardsmen gagged and pleaded to march further inland. They were summarily denied. Alakir watched the moon reflected in murky waters as it slowly rose...

    LFG Calling All Thieves

    You receive a letter. It has reached your hands in any number of possible ways. Perhaps a courier handed it to you, perhaps a bird dropped it in your lap, or perhaps it simply appeared at your door. It is sealed with a symbol you do not recognize: a small songbird. It reads: Dear friend, You...
  3. Lazlo Harkon

    Completed Disgrace of the Damned

    Eleven years ago, Four Years after Quartreville, Vel Anir Lazlo Harkon was a dead man. He hadn't eaten in twelve days, or drank water in seven. His eyes were sunken and haunted, and his hair was disheveled. Yet, when the jailer shuffled across the room and unlatched his door, he looked...

    Private Tales Rising Heat

    The moderate temperature around the Academy was a great relief compared to that of the Ixchel Wilds and Iuk-'U Delta. There was no torrential rain, no swamps, and, most importantly, no mosquitoes. Henry, as odd as it was to say, was almost glad to be at the Academy. Though, as his horse trotted...

    Completed Nights like this

    It had been a long week. A small squad of Dreadlords and a few of the brightest apprentices, had been sent out to deal with a band of elvish raiders harassing a human settlement a good two days hard ride from Vel Anir. It had rained the entire way there and it had rained constantly since they...

    Private Tales What the Wilds Have to Offer

    It was fucking hot. Henry's clothes, a white linen shirt tucked into black trousers, and an unlaced arming doublet was all the First Rank Dreadlord wore. His armor, something easily replaceable, was tossed aside days ago. The saber at his side was the only weapon the man possessed, and he'd...
  7. Selene Avar

    Quest The Reclamation of Vel Istra

    Southern Aniria Territory Selene rode slowly upon a large black stallion at the head of a column of nearly thirty Dreadlords. Some wore thick plate armor, others simple robes of black, and still others a mix of the two. The sight would be an intimidating one, even for entire armies. Yet they...

    Open Chronicles Welcome to The Hunt

    Early Morning - The Academy "I've asked you all here to help with the training of some of our students," Magnus Olm was not a physically imposing man compared to most but his voice and his reputation commanded more respect than most. All Dreadlords who went through the Academy knew Magnus. With...

    Quest What Goes On[Dreadlords]

    Vel Anir - Vel Acadria Talus had few memories of Vel Acadria. He and his class of fellow apprentices had never spent much time within the city limits. Their own upbringing had been centered around the Academy. This place had always been more for show, a way to display to foreign ambassadors...
  10. Elise Virak

    Private Tales Written In Blood

    South Aniria - Virak Winter Castle Elise sat quietly in a large reading chair in what had once been her Great Uncles study. There was a book in her lap, and a small cup of tea on the side table besides her. She glanced out the window, watching the quiet forest that lay just beyond the walls of...
  11. Jana

    Completed The games they play

    Jana was rarely ordered around for matters as small as protecting merchants, no matter their standing, but this was rather an exception. House Sirl had a lot of trade deals going on all around, just as any other noble House of Vel Anir, but this was of a special importance as of late. Mostly...
  12. Elise Virak

    Fable - Ask A Belief Forgotten[Dreadlords]

    Vel Stratholm - Arethwin Cathedral Elise stared quietly up at a statue depicting a large man clutching an orb in his right hand. Behind him lay a massive stained glass window that colored him with the rays of the dusk even as the sun sat in it's noon position. Nowadays most Anirians would...
  13. Yrael

    Fable - Ask Extirpation

    ”Yrael, do not do this, I beg of you.” The older man had implored him. Sagith Aerin had been his mentor for close to six years now and a prominent figure in his training since well before then. While he was older than Yrael for sure, he could not be more than 40 himself. Dreadlords did not...
  14. Talus

    Fable - Ask The Shattered Keep[Dreadlords]

    Near Cortos - West Baal-Asha River Talus crouched in a small clearing surrounded by more Dreadlords than he had ever been in the presence of. There were over three dozen of them of all different sort of experience. First Levels, Seconds, thirds, Apprentices, and even a few fourths. It was a...

    Private Tales On The Town

    Vel Anir - The Raging Rabbit Ademar Acero Dreadlord Apprentices were rarely ever allowed to relax. Back at the Academy the occasion for down time was...well none at all. Just about the only quiet moments were when they were expected to study the histories. Other than that everything was...
  16. Selene Avar

    Quest The Insurrection of Vel Fael

    Vel Fael Rebellion was uncommon within the lands of Vel Anir. Insurrection occurred every now again, the Underground took Dreadlords, but outright Rebellion? That had been unheard of for nearly a century. Rising up against the Houses simply wasn't down. History had not been kind to rebels of...

    Quest No Escape

    Cortosi Sea - The Errant Spring Daria | Henry Bauer | Ademar Acero | Sierra | Venanin Sen Shiir Talus stood on the prow of the small ship that Archon Naja had provided them. It had been some times since Coraliv had fallen. In that time there had been waves of political intrigue and scandal...

    Completed The Consequence of Treason

    Rays of the sun shone through gaps in overcast weather over Vel Anir. Splotches of light ebbed and flowed as the clouds far above shifted over the great bastion of humanity. In the streets of the city, dense crowds of people carried out their daily tasks, the densest being in Anir Square. Hal...

    Private Tales The Links That Bind Us

    South of Vel Anir Talus reigned his horse to the side and stop as they passed through the last of the trees at the edge of the grove. His blade was already drawn, fingers tight around the hilt as his gaze swept over towards the nearby field of wheat. At the other end of the field he could spy...

    Open Chronicles The Lights of the West

    Cortos - Ylara Talus kept his eyes forward as he road through the small mountain gate of Ylara, his gaze fixed on the open square that lay just beyond the open archway. He took careful note not to glance towards the guards, all of whom were surprisingly vigilant. A couple hundred years ago...
