~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.~ EQUALITY. JUSTICE. REVOLUTION. Fallen leaves of autumn swirled on top of the sewage as Kukulkan, the head of the Orcish Liberation Movement, made his way through the sewers under Eubric Freeport. He followed illuminated engravings on the wall that only appeared to those who had been granted access to the Wolf’s Den, the secret hideout of the notorious Wolfgang. Once he got there, Kukulkan was greeted by Ulric Wolfkin himself. The orc had made an agreement to join the Wolf King's Followers. “I have to say I was pleased when you contacted me, Kukulkan. I have been trying to get the greenskins on my side for a long time now.” “I have had my reservations towards you and your organization, but with the situation of my kind being what it is, the Wolfgang is our best bet. The Wolfgang is not what it used to be – especially now that the witch is gone.” “Ah, yes. Dear Barbie left us not long ago. I’m not surprised you knew about it, given your companionship with the Oracle. We got into a little quarrel over ethics with Barbie, and she flew off to ruin some other civilization. I admit it was stupid of me to think I could benefit from her.” “The witch was nothing but trouble, boss. I learned as much during the mission in Babeleth.” “Yarr, good RIDDANCE to HER!” “Kukulkan, I’d like you to meet Walbartan and Hodurr Thornback. They’ve proven to be loyal followers, so I have appointed them as new Wolfgang Generals. I have weeded out most of the thieves and murderers from my followers, including the old generals, so that my final goal would not be corrupted.” “Your final goal is becoming the First King of Uland, isn’t that right?” “No, in fact my final goal is to install law and order to this place. You know the history this island bears. It is crucial to the future of Olegaia and all the people that live on it. It must be cherished and protected, something the old Houses are inept to do.” “I’d like to hear what makes you think you are any more capable.” “HA! He’s got some BALLS, that one!” "I would watch my words if I were you, orc!" “I appreciate your honesty, Kukulkan. Like you have your calling to save your people, I have mine. I may come from a foreign country, but I was lead here by a higher power to do good – just like you.” “I was shipped here by a bunch of slave traders, but I get your point. And I’m willing to give you the benefit of a doubt. You have the orcs. Better not let us down, or we will show you the wrath of Tarok.” “I will not. I now have two out of the six Veterans of Heroica on my side, so I trust it will make it easier for me to get in contact with the mighty heroes you have gathered under the roof of your Hall, right?” “I suppose so. The Houses will be pissed off, of course, but with their division to Crescent Union and Sungold Alliance, they will desperately try to get heroes on their side as well. War is inevitable, and Heroica will be divided due to it as well, but nothing lasts forever. At least we orcs do not mind war.” “That is exactly why I wanted you on my side so much, Feathered Serpent.” That day Ulric’s reach over both Eubric and Heroica grew greatly, and thus choice members of Heroica were sent letters of invitation into the Wolf King’s Followers. JOINING THE WOLF KING'S FOLLOWERS: ~ If a player character has reputation with the Wolfgang, they can opt to join the Wolf King's Followers by posting a "letter" where he or she expresses their will to this topic. ~ The character's reputation with other Houses is not affected.

~PRELUDE~ Somewhere underneath Eubric Freeport... "So, you are back. You disappeared quickly once the truth came out. I was beginning to worry that you had bailed our cause." "I had to prepare, Ulric-dear. I wasn't ready for my little secret to come out soon, but everything is not yet lost." "I see you have lost your perfect complexion, Barbie. I assume you have worked your magic, then?" "I have had to resort to some... extraterrestrial measures, yes, and I admit it has worn me out a bit. But I assure you, everything is tightly in my control." "So, you're a mindflayer. Of the ancient sort, even. Never could have figured that out myself. Care to tell me more about it now that it's public? I really ought to know." "Very well, if you have the time to listen. It is a really long story. Where should I begin...?" Spesialia, the Realm of the Star Elves, was established thousands of years ago and was the first elven kingdom in the world. It was soon caught up with inner turmoil as the many families fought for power. Eventually the civil war came down to two mightiest families, the Alphieth and the Fenari, duking it out. The Fenari and their supporters lost to the more powerful alliance formed around the Alphieth, and were banished from Valastra, the capital city. Having no other place to go, the Fenari and their allies retreated underground. There the elves discovered crystals with immense magical properties they named Nekrastones. The power of the Nekrastones made them nigh immortal, but also twisted their appearances, making their skin pallid white and eyes bloodshot, and deteriorated their pointy ears. They became known as Fenarians, and their subterranean realm became called Fenario. This newfound power gave them power to strike back at the Star Elves, devastating the seven cities around Spesialia and forcing the Alphieth to seal away Valastra for good. That put the whole kingdom in decline, cutting out most outside influences and making the elves introverted and conservative. The constant state of war did not benefit the Fenarians, either, for they were practically trapped below the ground, having to fend of the multitude of monsters that dwelled in the dark caverns - among them the primordial Mindflayers that sucked powers and life-force from other living creatures. The Fenarian council of sorcerers, known as The Trine, invented a Psycrown that tracked down Mindflayers and prevented from accessing the wearer's mind. That way the Mindflayers of the old were vanquished to the brink of extinction. One of them managed to gather enough power and knowledge to escape Fenario before being discovered by the Psycrown, though. That Mindflayer travelled the world in search of people with great power to add to her own, starting with the sorcerers of the Tower of Babel. "I assume you are talking about yourself. Then the Heroicans heading to Spesialia to find a way to kill you are a real problem." "To say the least. If they learn about the Psycrown and obtain it from the Fenarians, they will gain the upper hand on me. But like I said, I have been making preparations..." ~*~*~*~*~*~ Five heroes and a small dragon were called to the Veterans' Chambers in Heroica Hall. There they found the six leaders of their organization standing by a golden archway. "Everyone is accounted for, yes? Now, let us not make this quest end up all messy like the last one did. You have one clear mission: find a way to rid the world of the immortal witch Baba." "Not witch but a mindflayer, remember?" "The one from the ancient myths, to be exact, not the relatively harmless variety found nowadays. It is not clear if Baba is even related to the modern mindflayers, but the Spesialian Scriptures describe an ancient breed capable of not only telepathy, but absorbing lifeforce and magic from other living beings." "That's why Baba has been able to live through the centuries - she has robbed the lives of other people, like that poor Ziegfried lad." "And the scope of her skills is beyond most mages. She has been witnessed summoning spirits and demons, forming portals and controlling crowds with her singing. She was there during the War of the Sun and the Moon that was waged between Ennon and Mercution, and I wouldn't be surprised if she had been using the Mad King Haeresias to her own ends." "And now she is helping a new king rise to power. History must not be allowed to repeat itself!" "That is your cue. The women will send you through this archway into the heart of Spesialia - the only place on Olegaia that has recorded history with these ancient Mindflayers. According to the scriptures, they were eradicated once, so surely there are means to take out this last one. But before we whisk you away, we need to make sure you are up for the task. If there is any hesitation in your mind, speak now."

Sandy posted a topic in Heroica! The RPG!Bilbert Wigglepike's theater was situated on the better part of Sungold Hill. The halfling had devoted his entire life to the theater, so one wouldn't be exaggerating if one called it his pride and joy. That day Wigglepike was highly nervous on behalf of his life's work. Later that night the theater would be populated by the cream of the crop of Eubric Freeport. Everyone who was someone in the city would come to his theater to celebrate the 400th Foundation Day of Eubric. The ball would contain speeches, performances, dancing and of course a lot of dining and drinking. He had been excited up to the moment he found out that the wily Wolfgang, the largest crime syndicate in the whole city, had their eyes on the theater. Wigglepike's heart was pounding as he watched watchmen in their reds and blues arrive by the dozens. Captain Patricia Cousland had summoned all of her men down to the last rookie to the theater for that special night. "W-what do you mean, a poisoner?! By gods, you cannot let that happen!" "That is what I'm doing my hardest to prevent, Mr. Wigglepike. I have even employed the untrustworthy Heroicans to aid us - but if they stick to their old habits, they will end up helping the Wolfgang instead." "I find that hard to believe... The Veterans of Heroica have never been anything but good to me and my business." "Well, we will just have to see about that.Well well, talk of Zoot and he doth appear..." Indeed, a group of nine champions of Heroica approached the theater at that minute. They were diverse both in appearance and experience, and their motives for joining the mission could only be speculated, but they were ready and available.

She feels irritated just from looking at the rag-tag group she has hired. Almost everyone of the champions looks like a potential backstabber - although the yeti would most likely just smash her head in between his gigantic fists. Her eyes shift from the old knight to the teenage mage, from the black-armored Metasimian to the hooded figure without a face. Disobedient souls, the whole lot of them! There is one familiar face in the group, though, a recent recruit called Regulus. Maybe she could trust even that one to do his job properly... "Heroicans, I hope you all understand the gravity of the situation we are here. In a matter of hours, every truly important person within this city is going to walk through those doors to enjoy a nice dinner with some music and dancing, honorating our 400 years old city. Our job is to make sure that absolutely nothing disturbs that celebration. Nobody gets in without an invitation, and all the surrounding buildings are kept in a tight watch. The word is that Wolfgang will strike this place tonight. We have high reason to believe that they will send none other than Nikolaus Steerpike, their Court Poisoner, to the task. Poison and dinner is never a good combination, you see. I can only hope and pray to any god listening that you will catch Steerpike if you come across him and deliver him to me dead or alive. And your Veterans help you if by midnight I find the leaders of Eubric lying dead inside that theater! Have I made myself perfectly clear?" The captain's icy stare goes through each of the nine champions. QM Note: Welcome to the quest, everybody! Now's your chance to ask questions from Captain Patricia and Bilbert Wigglepike, and get to know your companions. I will sort out the statistics tomorrow, as I like to keep them in a unified order.
