Pending Darshak Invasion (long post)

Post by Turalyon[DaTz] » Sun Mar 01, 2009 9:56 pm

Quick summary:

Darshak will invade in three days from the current IC time (so should be Monday prime time OOC).

An ambassador of sorts offered a hand in defeating the darshak.

His support force will descend upon the Darshak from after they have landed on the West beach.

We are instructed not to engage his force (self-described as pirates) lest we pay the price along with forgoing the benefits of a future alliance (my words).

I have a vision stone of the entire conversation (here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=AOZAKCV9)

K'vynn says, "thanks Lord Manquilor."
Manquilor exclaims, "Sure!"
Haffron says, "It is a strategic location for us."
A monster asks, "With ease. What good would that do?"
K'vynn says, "but it's not dead."
Poi asks, "You wish us to allow your navy to land unhindered in order to assist us?"
K'vynn says, "oh, now it is"
A monster says, "It seems a waste of our forces."
Rel'lim says, "You may be better off to land north of our docks"
(Tenneson Serpentsclaw nods.)
A monster says, "I know of many coves there."
A monster says, "Yes. That would do."
You have 9400 coins.
Rel'lim says, "we will come from the east, you can come from the north"

A monster says, "We will be there."
Turalyon asks, "what do you expect in return for your help?"

Turalyon says, "good enough"
(Amberdrake thinks we should have some sort of collateral!)
Haffron asks, "Where are these Darshak coming from?"
(Tenneson Serpentsclaw lets a smile slip.)
Haffron asks, "Why not strike them now?"
A monster says, "From Gathner."
Manquilor ponders, "I thought Eb was the only one that wanted blood"
Khan says, "we should attack them now"
Haffron asks, "Where is Gathner?"
A monster says, "The ships are, at least."

A monster says, "Far to the north."
Turalyon says, "it would probably take us at least a day to reach their forces"
Ella says, "TMI"
Turalyon says, "maybe longer"
A monster says, "The mercenaries on the ships come from all over..."
(Haffron has been studying too long.)
A monster says, "Many are exiles, much like yourself."
Ella says, "too much talk"
Dunstan is no longer Clanning.
A monster says, "Battle hardended. And soulless."
Haffron ponders, "Arindal?"
A monster says, "They are fierce warriors."
A monster says, "You must be prepared."
Manquilor ponders, "Hey, only some of us are souless..."
Taryn picks up a scavenger bird feather.
Poi says, "I am thinking the citizens of Puddleby do not easily give their trust and with good reason."
Shadowmutt scratches itself.
A monster says, "It seems Gathner has finally turned its attention towards your small isle."
(K'vynn nods to Rel'lim)

Krandor says, "we have many different types and we know some of thier works"
Turalyon says, "she has it mainly for the purpose of studying"
A monster says, "It leads only to death."
Andarius says, "A question"
(Tenneson Serpentsclaw sighs.)
Krandor says, "I only lead to death"
Rel'lim says, "We do not toy, we use them against the shak"
A monster says, "Be careful."
Ella says, "oh not now for sure"
Krandor says, "muaahahh"
Andarius says, "what are your assurances that you will leave"
Haffron asks, "What do you know about Darkstones?"
Ella says, "thanks"
K'vynn whispers, "nope!"
Rel'lim says, "And don't underestemate us"
Poi asks, "You have given your message. For what else are you here?"
Andarius says, "when this is over"
A monster says, "I was not trained in the priesthood. I was a first born."
Ruuk is now Clanning.
Rel'lim says, "ahhh"
The partial name 'a' is not unique.
Amberdrake says, "Would you be willing to stay as a hostage? Or send one? We have a fine jail"
Ortlinde says, "requires several ingredients of which a lyfelidae claw is more difficult to obtain."
Ella says, "worm your knowledge is great"
A monster says, "Take by advice and cast those stones aside."
Rel'lim asks, "you have lived with the shak?"
(Ella grins)
A monster says, "Yes. But their priorities have changed."
Ella says, "good to have you with me"
A monster says, "And so my loyalties have changed with them."
Ella says, "thanks"
Krandor yells, "BEER!!!"
Haffron asks, "What is so special about firstborn, do you look down about the priesthood?"
Ruuk yells, "BEER!"
Ella says, "you sent it"
You have 9400 coins.
A monster says, "The priesthood concerns itself with destruction."
A monster says, "They produce nothing of value."
Rel'lim asks, "and what are their priorities now?"
Andarius says, "the priesthood is full of filthy pigs"
Taryn ponders, "so much for "brief" message :)"
(Xenos waves a flipper)
A monster says, "They are focused on increasing their dark powers above all else."
Haffron asks, "Ah, so you share history with the Darshak?"
(Ella smiles excitedly)
A monster says, "They want to turn all pirates and noblemen into mindless slaves."
Stora flips a coin. It comes up heads.
Andarius says, "he is telling you he is one of them"
Xenos is no longer Clanning.
A monster says, "I do not have time for such tales."
Andarius says, "or 'was'"
Rel'lim says, "You must know some secrets to use against them"
Rel'lim asks, "Care to share a few of those with our mystics?"
A monster asks, "Secrets?"
Haffron says, "That spirit could be a spy"
Manquilor exclaims, "Stabbin' them is their weakness!"
Haffron yells, "die spirit"
Ruuk says, "Thank you"
A monster asks, "Mystics?"
Rel'lim asks, "To help us defeat our common enemy?"
A monster asks, "Are these priests?"
Amberdrake says, "No"

Ella exclaims, "welcome!"

Rel'lim says, "they "know" things"
(K'vynn frowns)

Ella says, "plot"
Asenath ponders, "holy to who?"
Amberdrake says, "Mystics ≠ Dark Priests"
You have 9400 coins.
Ella says, "something going on"
Rel'lim says, "We have NO dark priests"
Ella says, "figure it out"
A monster says, "I have heard otherwise."
Ortlinde ponders, "We better keep Wangah Rah away from him."
Ella says, "I am slow"
Ella says, "sorry"
Rel'lim ponders, "forget Wangah"
Ella says, "new"
A monster says, "You have warriors which use the blood of their fallen foes to gain power."
Haffron asks, "Will we be able to speak with your master after this battle takes place?"
Ruuk says, "Is ok"
Shadowmutt pants.
Ruuk says, "Much appreciated"
A monster says, "You raise those who should be dead."
(Ruuk smiles)
(Manquilor wrinkles his nose)
Turalyon asks, "if the foes are evil, is that not a noble cause?"
Rel'lim asks, "do you fear our blood mages?"
(Ella high five)
Manquilor asks, "Ya don't like blood magic?"
A monster says, "These are striking coincidences."
Koppi yells, "Ackkbar reports: TRAP!"
Haffron says, "well and our moonstons"
A monster says, "I fear nothing."
Taryn says, "being fallen isn't being dead"

Ruuk yells, "BEER!!!"
Manquilor ponders, "fire!"
A monster says, "Our forces are yet small. But growing..."
(Ella thanks worm)
A monster says, "This will be the first time they have moved in such force."
(Ella bows)
Manquilor says, "oh dear"
Haffron asks, "Can we speak with your Master after we deal with these shak?"
Turalyon asks, "are you proposing a long term or short term alliance?"
A monster says, "But they will fight fiercly. They are eager."
You have 9400 coins.
A monster says, "I propose no alliance."
Poi asks, "Are you looking for an Alliance?"
Ella asks, "what is going on here?"
A monster says, "This is simply an opportunity that has presented itself."
(Manquilor nods.)
Turalyon says, "so a short term alliance"
(Rel'lim grins)
A monster says, "I volunteered, thinking you slightly less vile than I have heard."
Andarius says, "so simply: my enemy's enemy is my friend"
(Tenneson Serpentsclaw glares at Khan.)
Turalyon says, "correct"
Rel'lim says, "Khan, stand down"
Manquilor says, "It all depends who ya talk to"
(Khan glares)
A monster says, "I am not sure if I was correct."
K'vynn ponders, "idiots."
Andarius says, "Khan, damn it, don't be a fool"
A monster says, "I think perhaps you just lack discipline."
A monster says, "And strong families."
Krandor says, "or manners"
Asenath says, "we have no discipline."
Poi says, "We are not organised"
Ruuk asks, "Perhaps you would like a favour in return?"
Taryn asks, "we're exiles, what do you expect?"
A monster says, "Exiles are a sad lot. Cast off and separated. I feel for you."
Asenath says, "each is her own mistress"
K'vynn whispers, "what to say, we're lawless exiles."
Haffron asks, "So, can we speak with your master when this is over?"
Turalyon says, "he said no favors"
Manquilor says, "hehe"
A monster says, "That is for the master to decide."
Crius yells, "It's 8 o'clock, and we've got a situation... There's Tenneson Serpentsclaw here..."
A monster says, "If you prove your worth."
Andarius says, "I think perhaps you are an arrogant man"
Chantilly is no longer Clanning.
(Rel'lim frowns)
Amberdrake asks, "Can we keep you here until its over?"
Andarius says, "prove yourselves to uas"
Rel'lim says, "stand down"
Andarius ponders, "us"
Haffron says, "Please bring this up when you speak with him next"
A monster asks, "Keep me?"
A monster asks, "For what purpose?"
(Amberdrake nods)
You have 9400 coins.
Amberdrake says, ""In case""
Turalyon says, "he probably needs to return and organize his forces"
Haffron says, "He needs to return the message."
Khan asks, "a dueling pet?"
Amberdrake asks, "Good faith?"
Haffron says, "Unless we have a messanger bird, I'd suggest we let him go"
Andarius says, "he is a messenger"
K'vynn asks, "It seems odd, why seek our assistance when we have no alliance?"
A monster says, "I could send the message back with my skiff."
Haffron says, "or leave us something"
Andarius says, "let him go"
A monster asks, "You think I was foolish enough to come alone?"
Haffron says, "in case you betray us"
(Rel'lim frowns)
Haffron says, "and you can take me"
Amberdrake says, "Haricot makes some great food.."
Khan says, "stora heal khan"
Stora exclaims, "Heal!"
Haffron says, "in case we betray you"
A monster says, "You have no worth."
(Andarius chuckles)
Manquilor says, "'cause we'll be able to keel more shaks now that he's told us, K'vynn"

For those of you who are unaware, Gathner is the Dar'shak home island. If this isn't a trick (and it may well be, I make it a point not to trust anyone named Serpentsclaw), then it's a very serious matter. All you rabble, please be on your guard for the next few days.

Here is a sketch from Turalyon's visionstone, so everyone knows what Tenneson Serpentsclaw (and maybe his army) looks like.

Invasion Imminent?
A few pirates have landed at Crawler's Revenge, and set up campfires, perhaps as beacons for the rest of the pirate fleet.

They dispatched the Darshak scouts who had been crawling all up and down the west coast of Puddleby.

There have been a few small landings of strong Darshak (Marauders and such) on the northern beach, beyond the plains. These were dispatched by exiles, but more arrive.

A corsair has been spotted in the ocean's waters— perhaps a normal patrol, perhaps not.
Exiles clear Tenebrion's Island west waters to weaken local Darshak naval forces.

Update: A representative of the pirates, Flatfoot Roberts, showed up in Puddleby. He announced that Stinkfist, captain of the local pirates (heh, this gets a bit confusing), attacked them and was killed. Stinkfist is now under (Darshak) Pirate guard.

The invasion has begun. Skirmishers, blades, and raiders have appeared on the west shores.

Update: They're really pouring in off their ships. Not just a scouting party; we're being properly invaded here!

Second update: Carousers, pillagers, guards, harriers... Puddleby so far has put up a brave defense. The exiles are holding strong.

No sign of the pirates— well, not since a small (exile) pirate raiding party killed a number of the pirates who were holding Crawler's Revenge. Did we scare off our erstwhile allies?

Another battle sketch from the edge of town center. At least one Mercenary has since shown up. A moment after I took this last sketch, one of the Mercenaries warned exiles to "beware of imitation pirates, laddies!"

All seems to be going well for Puddleby. We've pushed the Darshak back to the west gate, where we're picking off the few remaining inside our walls...

The shak seem to have set up some sort of siege, perhaps with cannons? After shouting Aim, Fire, and so on, a huge gout of fire tore through our vanguard (as well as kudzu) and pushed us back into Puddleby.

UPDATE: The rebel pirates have arrived and are helping slay the invading Darshak! However, there seems to be a problem: "Where are tha others? We were 'sposed ta be relief!"

More Darshak barges have pulled in at the dock.
Large warships are parked there as well, and Darshak are swarming off of them. A flotilla of warships is cannonballing exile forces who linger on the docks.

A Darshak veteran chained several fallens from the docks to the gate. A few moments later, the same veteran was engulfed in flame. He was last seen screaming (for mercy?)

A few words from the invading forces:
"Avast, tha Mercs are 'ere! That'll show those cursed rebs."
"Run ye fleabitten cowards."

The battle rages on in west town.

Exiles fighting off a large group of Dar'shak at the west gate. Wesgürd useless. Stinkfist noisy, stupid. Events pending.

West Puddleby's now swarming with Mercenaries and Marauders. The exiles who were defending the gate lay scattered in pieces. Priests run amok amongst the fallen.

Darshak commanders order their men to seek and destroy the rebels.
The Mercenaries have begun talking trash.
