Gems of Sosaria

Image

Reports from town criers throughout Sosaria are streaming in regarding hordes of undead swarming the graveyards. We don't advocate you attempting to subdue these forces on your own. Early reports from the field suggest their numbers can quickly escalate beyond the abilities of one warrior. Should the brave of Sosaria decide to combine forces you may have a chance.

Here we have one of the first reports from the graveyards of Britain. The warrior Delo describes the escalation, "I was talking with two other warriors about how the town criers often exaggerate when the 9000 liches stumbled out of their graves and crypts." (Quote is slightly modified for story and lore.)

There have been sightings of something both beautiful and grotesque. Those with a keen eye have been able to glimpse the gem encrusted. The reasons for the sudden appearance of this mysterious mutation is unknown at present. What is known is that their gem encrusted skins increases not only their defense but also their offense. Exercise extreme caution when in the graveyards of Britannia. As of now only two graveyards have been attacked. We suspect someone or some force is using the graveyard to test the success and failure of these mutations. Lord British has declared a state of emergency and promises to squash this uprising before it gets to out of hand.

Image

Lord British has instructed his brightest alchemists and scribes to delve into the histories of Sosaria, looking for information on these gem encrusted mutations. These alchemists and scribes have not uncovered anything. In fact not since Mondain and his black gem of immortality has an individual or force controlled enough magical power to create such things. Lord British has once again made contact with The Stranger to inform him of the present situation.

The artists guild has been commission and completed three renderings based off eye whiteness testimony. Study them so you have sufficient knowledge to protect yourselves.

The reports we've been receiving of attacks on the graveyards of Sosaria have slowed. This is believe to be because of the successful defense the citizens of Sosoria mounted against their invasion. Lord British has expressed his gratitude that the graveyards, which reside close to most towns, are no longer in danger. His grace fears that all is not over. There is a strong belief among his advisers that because the defense was so successful the person or persons behind these mutations may be prepping for something bigger. Something on a scale not yet witnessed.

Gem encrusted mutations have been spotted lurking around Dagger island. We are advising all residents of the island to take extra caution when leaving your homes.

Image

In addition we have received a rather alarming recollection from a miner who calls Dagger island his home. What follows is reenactment from Actors of The King's Men Theatre of Britain. The identity of the miner has been withheld at his request, he fears retribution.


The reenactment has been viewed by Lord British and his response was swift. He sent a scouting party into Deceit to determine the extent of the invasion. They returned with grave news and these sketches.

Image Image Image

The scouting party dived to the depths of deciet to get an accurate account for Lord British. They determined that the entire dungeon is now under the control of another enitity. Their report detailed the infestation of gem encrusted monster. They also reported a curious side affect of the infestation. Apparently these gem encrusted mutations have some sort of pull on the gemstones still hidden within the world and are causing them to push through to the surface.

Lord British is concerned that the infestation at Deceit is going unchecked. Recent reports suggest an increase in abnormal gem encrusted monsters spawning in Deceit. Lord British's advisors fear the reason for the invasion going unchecked is due to the remote location of Deceit. Lord British has used this information and instructed the Mage's Guild to open a permanent gate to Deceit. The Mage's Guild has opened the gate on top of the "West Britain Guard Post". Additionally, Lord British has commanded the Healer's Union to station a healer near the entrance of Deceit.

Lord British has seen enough and has decided it is time to try and put an end to the infestation that has taken hold of Deceit. He will be leading a company of order guards into Deceit to purge the dungeon of its infestation. He asks for the citizens of Sosaria to join him so as to witness his triumph over evil. Lord British's advisers believe that if the gem encrusted infestation can be eradicated their creator would be forced to show him or herself in an attempt to gain a foothold on Deceit once again.

Image


It is unknown at this time what sort of reinforcements will arrive to combat Lord British and his company of order guards. If you choose to assist Lord British and claim glory along with him, have your wits about you for even Lord British in all his wisdom and might can't be everywhere. Lord British will set out to deal justice after he has sufficiently answered the questions of his citizens on January 26th. For more details on Lord British's(Richard Garriott) return click here.
*note: Richard Garriott may or may not actually be playing Lord British during the Gems of Sosaria event.

Gems of Sosaria



The Q&A with Lord British and Lord Blackthorn, who hence forth will be known as Darkstarr, had ended with as a resounding success. Our Lords had addressed their people and it was now time to assault Deceit. Lord British requested a moment to rally his order guard and promised that on his return they would make for Deceit.

Lord British returned with the determination of a nation on his shoulders. He addressed the volunteers still located in the throne room and asked them to accompany him to Deceit to join in his victory. The party left his castle and headed for the "West Bank Guard Post" where the Mage's Guild had opened a permanent gate to Deceit. Once the group entered Deceit it was abundantly clear that lives would be lost during the endeavor. They met with a force unseen since Mondain heralded the First Age of Darkness in Sosaria.

We received eye witness testimony of some of the action. The accounts of these witnesses painted a picture of Order and Chaos. The volunteers at the front were systematically engaging gem encrusted monsters with Lord British, while the back of the group was under attack from opportunistic chaotic murders.

Image


At last, there was but one gem encrusted monster left. As the last monster, a gem encrusted balron, fell a new enemy approached. The Murderous Lord Lutsyn appeared, full of confidence and boasting of his strength, summoning what seemed like an endless supply of his gem encrusted creations. With the help of a king, man and women, beast, and summon the group was able to whittle away at his immense strength.

Image


With but a sliver of life left Lord Lutsyn uttered the words of power Kal Ort Por, yet he was still there! What was his plan? Was he attempting to escape? Onward the group surged, spells soared and weapons whizzed, dealing as much damage as possible in an attempt to block Lord Lutsyn's Recall. Finally, for a brief moment witnesses reported seeing "a corpse of Lord Lutsyn". Before any of Lord British's Order Guards could perform forensic evaluation on the corpse it was gone! Where was the corpse? Some witnesses report having seen a group of people cutting up the corpse and carrying it off. Was this to have some sort of sick memento of the momentous occasion or was there an ulterior motive? Is Lord Lutsyn really gone or was this deception an attempt to pull the wool over eyes and allow the Evil Lord to continue his research while the kingdom thought him dead. Lord British was just happy to see an end to the infestation of Deceit. Pleased with the help his kingdom provided he thanked his loyal citizens for their assistance and returned to his throne room in Britain.

Lord Lutsyn is not gone as we hoped, he is currently attacking Britain and it's cemetery with an army of gem encrusted monsters. He has apparently undergone a change, the full extent of his change is unknown at this time. The city is unprotected as all of Britain's guards have been tasked with defending the boarder between the cemetery and Britain. As such we suggest using another city if you need to shop or access your bank. A call to arms has gone out to the citizens of Sosaria to aid Lord British's guards in the defense of the city. If we can succeed in defeating Lord Lutsyn here perhaps we will determine the location of his new lair.

Gems of Sosaria

It appears our worst fears may have been realized. We had been receiving reports for weeks that some gem encrusted monsters have taken to Britain Cemetery. The thought was with Lord Lutsyn gone, given time, these mutations would die out. It appears now that while Lord Lutsyn was defeated in Deceit he was not eliminated. He has been resurrected using the same power he once wielded. Has he returned encrusted with the Gem of Immortality? What else could possibly bring him back after reports of his body being cut into pieces and carried off and who or what is aiding him?

Image

Moments after Lord Lutsyn's defeat at Britain and it's cemetery the dungeon Covetous sprang to life with his creations. He appears to have made these mountains of Britannia his new lair and as such one should expect increased resistance due in part to the mutations now spawning in the dungeon. Extreme care should be exercised when adventuring in Covetous as reports are surfacing of significantly more powerful mutations spawning at some of the most popular hunting spots on each level.

Lord British is currently meeting with his advisers to determine a course of action. His has initially commanded the realm to hold the gem encrusted mutations at bay, do not let them leave Covetous. Should they breach the containment an announcement will follow to eradicate the spread of these mutations.

Hear ye, hear ye!

This coming Sunday, October 12th, the Mayor of Vesper has arranged a call to arms with the Alastor J. Gordon, the Mayor and leader of Trinsic’s defense. The time has finally come to rid Covetous of these gem encrusted abominations. Britannia has seen many vengeful attacks over the last year. If left unstopped, there’s no telling what will happen to the World. We did not unclench ourselves from the evils of Mondain to simply have a new evil replace him!

The battle will begin at 6:30pm (EST) at the guard post west of the Ironwood Inn in Vesper. From there, Alastor will lead the way up to Covetous. Lord British’s Grand Wizard has given Alastor a medallion which will allow him to dispatch these creatures once and for all, but before it can be activated, each level of the dungeon must be completely cleansed. It’s believed that upon cleansing each level, a greater force of evil will reveal itself. Do not underestimate the power that these unseen creatures possess.

Image


Lord British will be sending his finest guards to assist with the raid, but let it be known that it is expected that unruly brigands will more than likely show up and try to flank the cleansing party.

If the party is successful in cleansing Covetous, Lord British will be able to dedicate more of his guards to enriching the lives of all Britannians and will be seeking to honor all who fight for the Virtues, both order and chaos alike.


Update!
The party was successful in cleansing the dungeon of Covetous
