And so begins a new act in our saga. The Selukkite scholar was, unfortunately, cut down almost immediately when the Cultists arrived. Who was to know that they had contracted the Umtrahd Ruul to assist them? Perhaps things would have gone at least somewhat better had some of the historian's own guard not turned on him as soon as danger arrived. A'therys would surely be better situated to face its current threat had the world heard what he had to say. But it is no matter, for what has passed is past. For now, the denizens of the Mortal Plane look to the future, and from Archmage av-Haresh comes information to help. More of the tomes from Syrros' hidden library have shed light on another location of interest: the Tower of Petrav, the Earthen Elder....

After many millennia, the library of Syrros the Wind Elder was found. And promptly ransacked. House Volaradon is of course somewhat miffed, but considering that the Archmage put out the call, they know their honor is somewhat on the line should they protest too loudly. As it was, they forbade entrance to any who did not have a written Letter of Introduction from one of their members, which led to quite an interesting day for the estate doorman. He's reported all sorts of ways that seekers tried to gain entry; one fellow even tried to present his horse in lieu of a piece of paper, with "Letter of Introduction" written on the side in charcoal! The doorman explained that he of course turned the man away, though the Orator Prince of Volaradon has been...

The day was hard won, but the Itheri emerged victorious in their retaliation against the Alor. The caravaneers and their guard had scarcely risen to face the dawn when the attack came. The first wave eliminated most of the Alor forces, but a lone detachment of Vrovonic legionnaires put down the assailants. Newspapers are reporting that it was in fact the Marcolo Brigands yet again who led this charge, seeking the artifact for their own gain. But even the mighty northern legion could not help as the real Itheri forces came down upon the caravan, before the embers had even cooled in their campfire. Orator Prince Aervelion, the noble responsible for transporting the artifact from Cyridon Spire, was gravely injured and the mysterious relic was seized...

With the Captain's Log recovered from the frozen vessel (by the Marcolo Brigands no less), a shocking revelation emerges. The attack seems to have been perpetrated by Alor mages! Ithero is in a state of outrage, naturally, while Aloreh proclaims no knowledge of the incident. But movements at Cyridon Spire seem to belie that statement: shortly after the Itheri Navy declared their ship missing, a caravan departed the campus of the Mages' Guild seemingly making its way towards Methes Avonthes. Itheri spies have discovered the planned route, and track the caravan even as this is written. What the Alor are transporting is clearly magical in nature, but unknown in purpose; the secrecy may mask the reason behind the fate of the ship and its cargo.Aside f...

It starts with a ship.In the northwest reaches of the usually temperate Marcolo Sea, an Itheri cargo ship lies encased in ice. Capsized, most of its cargo claimed by the depths. Far to the east, a strange caravan departs from the Cyridon Spire, campus of the Mages' Guild, on the route to Methes Avonthes. What is there to make of all this? What is coming? Now, none can say. But it is the start of a three-month adventure that you can be a part of. Every Saturday, beginning on the 14th of June, an event will be held to continue this story. It is our first lore-based event, which means you can be sure that if your actions are great, they will be heard in our history in some form or another. A'therys has yet to see anything like this, and we hope you w...

The Black Queen has few bastions upon the surface of A'therys. It is a plane she seems to have withdrawn from, for reasons only known to her, as the portals which once led to her domain lie dormant on their chamber floors. But in recent years, far out into the ocean west of Aloreh, a ghastly outpost has formed. Claimed for unknown reasons by corruption from the Netherworld, it sits like a nightmare upon the horizon. Infernal monsters walk the shores, and what treasures there might be deep beneath are guarded fervently by the army of Qhugat'ayu-oru. A former Alor mining colony, Virion Alesce is no longer the pleasant isle it once was. Whatever purpose it now serves, it does so silently, separated by the waves and calling would-be adventurers to its...
