[EVENT] Love and War

Posted 1 month ago :: Last edited 1 week ago by junijwi

This year's Fare Thee Wells has been largely overshadowed by recent events. Everyone knows Mylic watches as the inhabitants of Orrison prepare for possibly the first war in this age.

ch 1: preparations - Feb 7 to Feb 22

Supplies, arms, ammunition, food, livestock, cavalry-- both sides are taking accounts of their resources to be sure they are equipped for both offense and defense.

Ynochrin: Scouting Party

The chimoraa busy themselves with war. It seems they were far less concerned with gaining allies, and far more concerned with simply reducing the number of enemies they needed to fight-- they do not force the refugees to assist with war preparation efforts, but rather offer a handful of guides to lead them to potential settlements further north and to the west. Tol, Kichora, and Immitheus are three locations of old cities which now lay in ruin, and the chimoraa promise to help survey them for suitability for re-habitation.

Ichorrai: Sanctum

The matter of the Sanctum was settled and those who entered found themselves marked a title based on the challenge they chose and their performance:

Role Halo Color Description
Aegis Orange any sentinels or aegis
Hymnal White any greater religious figures, spiritual figures, or philosophers
Versed Yellow any lesser religious figures, spiritual figures, or philosophers, as well as scholars and students
Custodian Purple any with political, economical, or scientific talents which shape the whole of society
Ward Green staff, laborers, artisans, merchants, etc, the rest of the general populace
Peril Red any who challenged aelius to a fight and won. this overrides any other title

In addition, each were given a magitech piece made to look like a necklace or collar. The device projects a halo for the wearer while within the confines of the sanctum, even overriding a rrex's natural halo. Much like rrex halos, the device broadcasts the user's surface level emotions through shapes, while the color of the halo indicates their title. 

Emotion Halo
Neutral A plain circle
Happy A steady ring
Sad A rippling ring
Angry A spiking ring
Afraid A tiny circle

Although all are given equal care, food, and lodgings, Hymnals and Custodians are allowed access to the Inner Sanctum where others are not. Aelius requests access to these individuals as personal advisors.

Ichorrai: Preparation

As for war preperations, the clearest route between Ynochrin and Ichorrai is along the coast and through the sky. Despite their advantage in these areas, Aelius firmly opposes an outright offensive, instead focusing on defense. He wishes to secure their line in the valley near Terralai, assuming the chimoraa will be coming across land rather than the sea. More secretly, he hopes to strengthen Kinstead's position as well-- it's a location he is loathe to give up.

New Ch.2: Seek Power - Feb 22 to March 8

The outpost at Kinstead

Kinstead is an old military outpost recovered by Ichorrai for the purpose of guarding the Spire (lesser). The Spire is protected more to keep people from hurting themselves than anything else-- guards exist to warn people away from the radius of its effects, and don't normally force people away; if they get hurt or killed after that, it's their own fault.

Petrel has convinced his kin that the Spire must not be under Aelius' jurisdiction. Following omens, they claim that Aelius' actions with the spire could lead to changes as catastrophic as the Senescence itself. Thus, the chimoraa royal family rallies its allies on a mission to save the world-- they march to take Kinstead.

It is strange, that Aelius anticipated this move despite Petral originally voicing that they would be laying siege on Ichorrai itself. With Ichorrai somewhat secured with the implementation of the Sanctum, and his own Aegis mobilized alongside volunteers to face the chimoraa army. But to justify himself, he states what everyone knows-- that the Spire is potentially a source of energy to those who discover how to use it. His declaration implies that he would rather stop the chimoraa from gaining it, rather than use it for any means of his own.

"To allow something that powerful and that close to fall into the hands of a self-declared enemy would simply be foolishness."

Comment below to add your support to either Ichorrai or Ynochrin in the standoff at Kinstead. This can be an OOC (out of character) or IC (in character) post. Commenting will enter you in a new raffle. State your character's motivations or actions for an extra ticket! You may enter once.

Shelter at Immitheus

Refugees have found the most viable spot for relocation to be the old high city of Immitheus. Similar to Ichorrai, it has many pre-existing structures in the layout of ruins of an old city which can be built upon. Unlike Ichorrai, it is potentially an even more puzzling place with more dangers and secrets. Immitheus was the high capitol of the Immanu, and as such it was a nest of their most dazzling inventions. All structures are coroded by feral daemons and eaten away, but answers could still lay here waiting to be discovered.

Comment below to search the city for a chance to win items! This can be an OOC (out of character) or IC (in character) post. State which character is searching, and if they are being assisted by any companions. You may do this once.

Companions

As part of preperations for the oncoming war, we suggest you use this time to get companions in order!

Companions are pets and mounts. You are free to make them as they are not a closed species, however if you earn them and place them on the masterlist, they are available for future upgrades as well as submission bonuses. Cameo'ing and including an official companion of your character to your entry gives you the additional award of pulling from the Pet or Mount random rewards, no matter what submission you include them on. Additionally, completing companion prompts during this week will give you raffle tickets.

In addition, completion of ANY companion earning prompt will get you a raffle ticket for this event.

Prompts

The prompts for this event are a little more open ended as things will continue to happen! Any submission related to the event can be submitted as a prompt as long as it follows the minimum requirements, and you can submit three times for rewards.

Ayroehl was nearly buzzing with nervous energy, checking over the buckles and straps on Jinx's gear for the sixth time that hour. Jesses, ankle straps, the small cap that helped keep her calm...back and forth between each of her birds, she busied herself with making silent preparation, her artificial halo for once not the angry, spiked ring it had been for the past week. The change was almost jarring.

Remaining neutral had been the plan of both Iphae and Seethe. While both of them had contacts in Ichorrai and did most of their work from the city in question, neither wanted to get involved in the politics of this war. But the talk of a grand battle was tempting. Especially to Seethe.

We should make an exception for this one fight Seethe was quick to suggest once word reached his ears.

What for? Seems like more trouble than it's worth. Iphae wasn't convinced.

The skiving immanu elbowed his leyr companion in the side. To the victor go the spoils. That could be you and I big guy. Send those pesky rodents scurrying back to their dingy hole in the ground and I'm sure Aelius will be quick to hand out rewards.

Hmph. Iphae responded indignantly. And if Ichorrai loses?

Seethe clasped his hands together, a grin spreading across his lips. Ah well, there will be plenty of corpses to pick over nonetheless. We'll gather what we can and take to the wind.

Entering for my underground city fam 😔😔

GULL: Gull was never the one to like war or fighting in general. Ever since the whole ordeal with the upcoming war Gull was- well...not so keen on any side but Choose Ynochrin deeming they are more of a ‘peaceful’ part of this war. Seems not since there’s always two battling sides.

DECLAN: Declan of course was born and raised in Ynochrin so wouldn’t hesitate to help defend or even attack those who threaten their home. So Declan wouldn’t hesitate to release the Murkhounds of so many underground depths for his people.

Fleeing from Ichorrai had not been easy for a multitude of reasons. The first and foremost being that Arthur had to leave behind his home, a tower he had rebuilt brick by brick a few centuries ago. The second being the struggle of relocating, not just the emotional toll but the physical toll. Arthur had collected many things over the years, be it items of interest, tools to aid his research, or simply the hundreds upon hundreds of tomes he and Percy had written by hand.

But they had managed, with the help of dedicated members of Icarus' Eye. All of Arthur's belongings had been loaded onto a boat and soon after they set sail for Immitheus.

Upon arriving, it was time to search for a suitable place to call home. Hopefully a tower similar to Arthur's old one. Change wasn't exactly easy for him to handle.

Rue's journey was luckily aided by the help of her relatively newly adopted Rike, whose sixth sense and surefootedness helped her make it across many of the old roads. Honeysuckle kept watch over her and the small group she traveled with hesitantly. Despite her hesitance, Immetheus still offered knowledge she couldn't turn down.

Soka was...an odd one, to say the least, but his somewhat-mysterious abilities proved quite useful. The chimoraa lent his talents for astral projection to scout out buildings that seemed less stable, and with his knowledge of architecture was able to warn others away from those that might collapse, and guide those more mechanically inclined in stabilizing those that could be salvaged. No people or animals were harmed in the making of this settlement.
