  1. ~This topic is for in-character interaction only, and only open to those joining the faction. Questions and out-of-character discussion should be posted into the General Discussion topic.~ PROGRESS. CREATION. LIBERTY. On a late summer's night, a secret assembly took place in the Chateau de Shadeaux, located high on top of the Crescent Hill. Count Noctus Shadeaux had heard that his rival merchant, Heinrich Hinckwell, had formed an alliance earlier that day, and thus summoned those great houses that had been left on the outs into his mansion: the Ji Pei, foreign ambassadors and innovators, and the Guild of Invision, alchemists that dominated the potion business in the city. To counter their rivals, the Shadeaux, the Ji Pei and the Guild of Invision put together the Crescent Union, as it would later be called, during that night. "It is insulting zat 'Einrich does not deem us worzy ouf zoining 'is effourts tu regain 'old ouf zis city!" "But Count Shadeaux, we are as much of a threat to him and his allies as the Wolfgang. Surely you understand that. Look at us; a true menagerie of foreigners and minority races." "Hmmm, yes. We have all changed this city in our own way too, we have." "U'lalah ith right; only ve knov vhat vreedom truly meanth! It ith conthant change and adaptation! Eubric cannot remain vree in the handth ov Volvgang nor thith Thungold Allianthe!" "Exactement! Zat is why we 'ave to create an opposing force, one to be reckoned wiz! We must give zis city a ruleur who can truly change it four ze betteur." "But who would be such a leader? I would say you are a force to be reckoned with, Umbra. With your cunning and determination, nothing could stand in our way." "Do not sell yourself short, my son. You are wise beyond your years, and your military training will be desperately needed in the times to come." "I agree with your mother, Jun. You would make a fine king for us, and make Eubric a close ally with the mighty Xu." "What about our Guildmaster, hmmm? The Masked Man has been around for centuries, and with his mastermind at our helm, nothing would stand in our way." "Speculation is worthless. We need to see which one among us is the most popular - that is the only way to beat Ulric to the throne. I say we do as the others did and call the Heroicans to join us. They are not always trustworthy, but if we can convince those most loyal to our cause to spread the word, we could win over the common folk's favor." "Zo, we shall leave it tu 'Eroica tu decide who becomes our noble ruler, n'est-ce pas?" All three families agreed to this, and thus choice members of Heroica were sent letters to invite them into the Crescent Union. JOINING THE CRESCENT UNION: ~ If a player character has reputation with the Shadeaux, the Ji Pei or the Guild of Invision, they can opt to join the Crescent Union by posting a "letter" where he or she expresses their will to this topic. ~ Once the character has joined, they will lose all reputation with the Hinckwells, the Bonapartes and the Ziegfrieds, including access to the expert job classes those Houses offer. Reputation with the Wolfgang is not affected. ~ If at any point the character wants to quit the Crescent Union, they will lose all reputation among the three Houses in it as well. ~ By joining the faction, the player character has access to the faction-specific shop, as well as any future events held by the faction. ~ Some future quests will be geared towards a certain faction, while members of the opposing faction may be locked out of them. So please consider your options before joining!

FIRST FACTION EVENT: KINGMAKERS ~ All members of the Crescent Union may suggest one candidate to become the ruler supported by the faction. You may only vote for one candidate, but you may change your vote as long as the voting is on. ~ The candidate can be a known NPC or a player character, but not a completely new, made-up character. It has to be a humanoid, not animal, plant or an inanimate object. ~ The influence that the player character's suggestion has is affected by the reputation he or she has among the Houses: each good reputation gives 1 influence, great reputation 2 influence, and outstanding reputation 3 influence. ~ The voting lasts until the end of the year 2015. Once the event is over, the candidate with the most influence behind them will become the faction's choice for the first king or queen of Eubric. Votes: Guts Holla: 11 (5 votes by Guts, 2 votes by Dyric, 1 by Na'im, 1 by Terry, 2 by Boris) Jun Ji Pei: 13 (5 votes by Atramor, 3 votes by Warlen, 5 votes by Hybros) Lind Whisperer: 5 (2 votes by Lind, 2 by Demon Germ, 1 by Torald) Umbra Shadeaux: 4 (4 votes by Thormanil)
  2. The heroes of the Crescent Union slowly assemble at the palace of the Ji Pei where they are greeted by Jun and his mother. "What a fine selection of expertise we have before us." "Indeed mother, some of the very best of the Union. Heroes, I know that a good majority of you did not agree with my position as it regards this undertaking, but I am thankful for your offer to assist and to follow the will of our community. Hopefully you will indeed discover as I have the great opportunity that lies in Xu for the excellent people of this city." "It is certainly more than some would think they deserve." "Let us get on to the details. While we have confirmation from the rulers in Xu that the land is ours to use, we still must ensure that the way between here and there is safe for the transportation of the settlers. Master Legonardo and the Tritech Corporation are seeing to the construction of new airships for the means of transportation however, because of their size they will not be able to reach the altitude of some of Vincent's more advanced dirigibles." At this point the famous inventor's assistant enters the room. "What he means to say, is with the possibility of hundreds of people on board we can't risk keeping them all up thousands of feet above the ground. We need to plot a course to Xu that is quick and relatively safe." "Ah, Dr. Gioconda, right on time. Indeed, now looking at a map of Olegaia, we've charted the best route is over Pyr, through the Strait of Seirenes, past the southern border of Babeleth, across the Jade Sea and straight on to Xu." "There's a colony of Sirens in that strait that we're going to need to deal with and then we're going to need to build a refueling station in either Salamanda or Babeleth." "I'll leave that to you heroes to sort out. Once you're in Xu, make sure that the settlement is secure and hasn't been over-run by monsters or anything." "We'll be taking the Destiny's Bounty, is there anything you heroes need before we depart?"

Come, let me take you to the ambassador. I'll explain everything as we walk." Lee motioned the men to follow him. "Shanxian has been summoned back to Xu by the Council of the Blue Hand for a hearing. I do not know exactly what they want, but I have a good guess. After Jun's involvement in the rebellious movement and her own accident, those blue-faced bastards must doubt if Shanxian is capable to act as their ambassador in Eubric anymore. I would love to go with her and tell them a few selected truths, but alas, I am an exile and I do not have a death wish. You three are strong and perceptive, I know that for a fact, so I personally chose you to escort Shanxian in my stead. I trust you will keep her safe. Ai Xurong, the floating capital of Xu, might look pretty but it is a viper's nest - especially to those who have fallen out of the favor of the Council." When they arrived to a pair of doors, Lee stopped them. "Before we go in, I want to confide to you. Shanxian has not been her usual self after the incident where she lost both of her legs. And I'm not talking about her disability alone, but she has all these... thoughts and doubts she didn't use to have. As an Aoi, she was born and raised to supremacy, and although she has always been kind to those beneath her, she has always known her place in the pecking order as well. Lately, she has had a lot of time to mull things over, and she seems to have gotten the idea that the Aoi are not fit to rule Xu anymore. I fully agree with that sentiment, you can believe that, but I worry she might speak her mind in front of the Council. So I beg of you, keep her safe from the scheming sycophants in the court, but also from her own self. She already lost her legs, I don't want her to lose her head as well. Now, are you ready to go in, or is there something confidential you still want to ask from me?" QM Note: Welcome to the quest! This quest will have three battles, one of which will be a bit different. Like I said in the Hall, I have a busy week ahead, so updates will be sporadic. My apologies in advance.

Without turning, she speaks to the heroes in a calm tone. "I have finally regained the will to work on this structure now that the plans for avenging my son have been finished. In due time, since the Guild of Bakers threatened to take the project to another architect if they would not hear from me soon. But you cannot smother one's maternal instincts. Jun was my only son, and I may never have another in my lifetime, as lengthy as it might be. The blood of the aoi has grown too thin over the passing millennias. We are fading from this world, getting whisked away one by one because of our pride and stubborness. If only I could have raised Jun differently, but he was an aoi through and through, and so much like his father..." As the woman turns to the party they see tears running down her blue cheeks. "These are not tears of mourning, not anymore. These are tears of happiness because now you are here. The weapon of my vengeance. Just look at the six of you, how strong you are... Will you honor my son's memory and slay down every last one of those vile terrorists calling themselves 108 Stars of Destiny?" Shanxian's fierce eyes go through each of the heroes, demanding to answer her plea. QM Note: Welcome to this quest! I can promise you that it will be short, but tough as hell. You are probably the strongest party to date, and I'm going to make you even stronger for the purposes of this quest. You have 35 more "Stars" to beat, and none of the remaining ones are mere cannon-fodder, so prepare yourselves for an ultimate challenge.

"Thank you for rushing to my aid. I did not know who else to turn to... I don't want to shame my son, but I also want to see him return safely. But it might be the best to start from the beginning... A clan of bandits calling themselves '108 Stars of Destiny' are holding the Hoshin Region under their grasp. Hoshin is a secluded valley in a distant corner of Xu, far away from the gaze of the capital, but to my son Jun it bears a special significance, for he was trained in the Way of Tao there. When he heard about the predicaments of the people of Hoshin, he just had to hop into his private airship and fly there. But he cannot face 108 notorious outlaws on his own, no matter what training he has gotten. I offered some of my guards to him, but he refused, saying they would only get in the way." "They would. The word is that the bandits have taken over the Pagoda of Nine Elements, a towering fortress perched high up on a mountainside. It is almost impossible to approach it without getting noticed." "Jun obviously wants to prove something to me, so I want you to find and help him, but under no circumstance reveal that I sent you. That would ashame him greatly, possibly preventing him from ever returning home. My son is the only family I have left, and I would give anything to ensure his safety. Even..." Shanxian turns, and walks to the gilded blade placed on a stand in the middle of the room. "Yes, even the Qilin Blade, the weapon that belonged to my late husband, Jun's father..." "This is no butterknife. The Qilin Blade is capable of damaging any type of enemy regardless of distance or defenses. Anyone can wield it, if it permits." "The spirits of the Aoi forefathers guide the blade, or so is believed. A worthy reward for bringing my son back, right? But since there is only one blade, may it go to the person who defeats the largest number of these 'Stars'. But now you must wonder how you will catch Jun in time. Luckily Mr. Legonardo has a solution to that problem." The blue-skinned ambassador summons her house inventor, Vincent Legonardo, who arrives swiftly with his assistant Monalisa Gioconda. "The preparations are complete, and the Destiny's Bounty is ready to take flight. I hope none of you ladies and gentlemen are afraid of heights, he he." "Mr. Legonardo's airship is the fastest one ever built. According to my calculations we should reach Hoshin region at the same time as Jun." "Is there anything you want to ask before departing? Any second thoughts? Considering the voyage you have ahead of you, as well as the amount of enemies you will have to face, I will understand if some of you want to back down." What will the party respond? QM Note: Welcome to the quest! Please check your statistics, I tried to find the most current information to all of them.

When you have a chance, you need to make a post in the Statistics Topic with everything in this format. They weave in an out of buildings and shops, most of which are just beginning to open up. As they near the docks, the Town Guard and the Bonaparte patrols wandering around seem to get more frequent, and the architecture appears rather aged. Soon enough, they reach the alleyway they've been directed to. The man who'd posted the quest in the hall stands in a dark corner, and beckons the heroes forth. "Ah, good, good. My name is Chalvo Erith - I am the assistant overseer of transportation and shipping operations within the Ji Pei. I assume you're the heroes I requisitioned from the hall...?" You've got around 24 hours to confirm and everything before we really set off, but feel free to talk with Chalvo or eachother. Make any last minute purchases before posting here, please. Also, I promise this is just the second worst picture in the Quest, it gets better.
