In Kohlingen, this evening, a previously close-knit set of knowledge was made public. After a Crystal Dragon made a dramatic if not clumsy entrance to Kohlingen to warn the First Knight about a growing threat in Trollbark Forest on the Sword Coast, the First Knight was forced to play her hand, letting adventurers who had come to the docks to aid know regarding the classified information the Defenders had gathered.


//This thread is pertaining to the three Dragon Bane weapons Solferno, Lauriel and Hollythorn and the plot pertaining. This is mainly for reactions from others regarding it as well as public statements.

The First Knight of Kohlingen stood overlooking a scattering of maps on the table before her, each showing a different location. Silent and pensive, her eyes focused on Trollbark Forest. The evil that awaited them there was one they could scarcely comprehend - even those fools who would dare to ally themselves to her could not see the true threat she posed. Illunamaeryx knew now that this enemy would not stand idle on the Mainland. It would come here to the isle, and that made this far more than Kohlingen's problem.

She turned away from the maps and approached her desk. It was time to write a few letters.

At the eve that just passed, a spectacle lasting fifteen minutes occurred. The moon grew a small greenish glow near the middle of it which slowly grew, turning the moon a beautiful green. Five lights of Green, Red, Blue, Black and White emerged as small spots on the moon, which converged somewhat east of the centre Amians could see and a lot more southernly from where those further north could see. Once converged, a bright been of light shot across the sky, landing somewhere on the mainland, south-southeast of Amia and almost completely south of the Frozenfar...


The moon became white once more after.

The sky cracks open over the Living City, darkness ripping the clouds out of sight. A small delegation finds themselves face to face with powerful champions of dragonkind.

Visitors to Kohlingen might note that there's more activity there, as if troops are being prepared for something. Occasionally, a gold dragon is seen flying over the city, surveying it, before dipping down to the Keep grounds again.

Late this evening, there is some activity in Wyrmhold. Stirred from their day-to-day, the mylocks attack some travelers, and then leave them the hell alone when the travelers cut them down as if they were made from paper. For a time, lights barely visible from a distance flicker in the fading sunset. After a few hours, a gold dragon takes to the skies with a mighty roar, heading directly for Kohlingen. It disappears beyond the walls of Dragonstone Keep.

In Cordor an unlikely pair seem to meet. Gerald sits outside with Illunamaeryx at the Nomad with a considerable amount of take out from Okappas. Their words exchange fruitlessly, as Illunamaeryx attempts to impress on him the necessity of opposing the Chromatic High Seer, while Gerald seems to believe otherwise. He delivers an imperative to the gold dragon - to deliver the Dragonsbane weapons or see lives lost, potentially innocent lives close to her. Illunamaeryx seems not to take this offer, and leaves.

Letters are sent out from Kohlingen, each addressed to the ruling/leading parties of Winya Ravana, Cordor, Bendir Dale, Wharftown, Barak Runedar, the Eilistraeen Shrine, Guldorand, Howness, Fort Wiltun, Ceyren's Mill, and the Oakmist Vale Grove. They accompany a member of Kohlingen's Order of Mages (with the exception of Barak Runedar, who gets a runner).


I have reached out to many adventuring individuals over the last few months - humans, elves, hin, and dwarves alike. We have worked together in our efforts to oppose a great threat of draconic origins, a great wyrm green dragon who seeks Ascension to immortality. If she succeeds in this, she will turn her sights on this isle. We depart tomorrow to end her threat once and for all, but I have urged the various peoples to have their kin prepare to defend their homes, in the event that we cannot stop this from happening.

I write to you now to ensure that you are aware, as new information has raised the stakes and the scope of the dragon's threat. The danger of her Ascension has increased, as she has called upon more allies to join her cause. Tarkuul has answered, and joined her wicked plot. I have reached out to Speaker Edmund myself to try to reason with him, but he remained unmoved. Tarkuul, as they made clear, cares not if the entire isle burns beneath these dragons' ambitions. They care not if the Green Wyrm's desire to destroy the gods succeeds and casts all into chaos.

Evacuation plans are currently in order in the event of an emergency, courtesy of Barak Runedar. They have agreed to host any refugees, away from the isle, should it come under attack. I have sent representatives from our Order of Mages to each primary settlement. Our mages, with your permission, will be able to create a teleportation circle which leads to Barak Runedar, for the purposes of emergency evacuation should they receive the signal we have arranged.

We realize that such an evacuation order may not be able to save all civilians in time before the dragons arrive, but we hope to save as many as possible. I strongly suggest that you assign other mages of your own to these tasks, that such an evacuation is as effective as possible, but the decision is yours.

The enemy will need time to reach the isle, if we fail. Use that time to secure your people. We have made arrangements to alert our mages and key personnel, so that we have as much time as possible to respond.

If you can spare extra hands for this great battle, to oppose both the Green Wyrm and Tarkuul's forces, send them to Kohlingen first thing in the morning. We depart as the sun rises to its highest point. Otherwise, put your guards on alert. Be prepared to fight for your homes.

May the gods guard and protect all of you, and may we be successful in stopping this wicked alliance.

By Bahamut's Grace,

Illunamaeryx,
First Knight of Kohlingen



// Edit: Added more settlements that I forgot.

Word arrives to those who have been heavily involved in this matter that the First Knight of Kohlingen will be hosting a less formal meeting on this topic in about six hours.

// 9pm GMT/4pm EST, if you can make it! Will be around for a while tonight for those who wanna catch up after this time.

A very strange occurrence happens in the early hours and continues throughout the day.

At the following locations:

-Cordor Central
-Amia Frontier
-Pearldiver's Peak
-Skull Crag mountains
-Ruined Tower in the Forest of Despair
-Shore east of Kohlingen

Small sets of Aurora Borealis float and waiver in the sky. A very unusual sight, Aurora Borealis is very rare as north as Amia is, but these strange sets of lights seem content to flicker above these locations...

The majority of these areas do not react much aside from amazement, however Cordor Central sees a slight reinforcement of guards around the entrance to the Nexus.

Following the events of tonight, the First Knight of Kohlingen retires to the Keep. She debriefs her superiors, and then begins to work on planning their next steps. Once all deliberations are done for the evening, she goes deeper into the Keep to meet with her two brothers to give them some pleasant news...

The quietness of the following day offered respite... but to those who were aware of what pulled the strings of creating the Bane weaponry, pensiveness at the ripples the Green Dragon Xil’lauriel caused elude them.

Where is Deepdesire? With his recent possession of the last three Dragonbane weapons and his goals unknown, the sizeable shadow slinks back in to obscurity...

Where is Teslabreath? The Blue that was left charred and scarred from King Whurak’s explosive end in Deepdesire’s nest, he became turncoat to Xil’lauriel and sided with the Shadow. Not seen since his brief assault on Kohlingen before they fronted their offence against Xil’lauriel, his vengeance against the Dwarf growing, has he decided to aid Deepdesire or has he left on his own terms, fueled by his disgrace at being scarred?

Where is Torgen the Strong or the evil Dragonslaying spirit that dwelled within him, Solferno? Missing from the assault in Trollbark Forest and his followers disbanding by the day since the threat ended, where is he?

Where is Barryan? The emboldened Pyroclastic that forced the Gold Dragon Illunamaeryx to bow to him has kept a low profile. Where does his alligences lie?


One thing is for sure, though.


The Aberrational Maw that dwelled in the forsaken Trollbark Grove ceased over the last 24 hours. The lesser Beholders, that emerged when The Hunger realised his control over the immensely powerful perfected Dragonbane Sword had faded, fell to the ground and dissolved in to nothing.

With a lingering Cerulean Sign at the site of the ruins of the Mystran Grove flickering gently, the thieves of the ancient order of the cerulean sign are no more. No longer is there immediate threat from the Far Realms and the Dragons they enthralled, it appears the day has been saved.




The silence is deafening and to any native Amian adventurer with experience, silence is the gaps in which something louder likes to occupy.

After the long and arduous trials of the fight against dragons and aberrations a certain wood elf returns once again to her quiet vigil in Bendir Dale, boxes and personal effects moving from the Holy City back to her humble room in the Hinn Inn (which is always kept paid and locked). After a few days, it was like Ania had never left it behind those passing months gone and settled back into the community. Although a watchful eye was kept on Wilfire for the duration of his recovery from his injuries the wood elf would resume her infrequent patrols of the roads and visits to the Shrine, keeping an eye on the horizon and for whatever troubles would invite themselves to disturb the settling dust.

The first morning back in the Dale however was spent with a glass of wine and quiet relaxation, enjoying the rare times of peace with her cat Petruchio on her lap and prone to midday reveries...

In the highest level of an ancient tower, a darkly robed figure starred thoughtfully at the glowing portal before her with an impassive expression as she mulled over the events of the past few months in her mind. Her dark, sunken eyes lost in thought before she came to a decision, expressed simply by a small almost indiscernible shake of her head. Rising from her seat to leave the chambers she ventured out into the Living City heading north, the Necromaster of Velsharoon returning to her temple to seek counsel.
