Long Ago, the People Were Dying at the End of the World....

But hope was not yet lost for Tarf still heard the song of the stars…

And So it Was…

That Tarf battled bravely in the waning months of Spring. During a fierce battle he found himself cut off from his Fellow Knights, save Kerhah. The two made a heroic stand and though they each faltered, neither fell that day. To commemorate their triumph they bound themselves together by blood and vowed to become the greatest of all Knights.

But on that day, born of the blood shed of and shed by the two Knights, a demon rose. It was called the Black Pool, and vowed to haunt and harass and fell those that birthed it.

We shall see what comes of it.

But hope was not yet lost for Betelgeuse still heard the song of the stars…

And So it Was…

That the artist-soldier received a visit from his father. The reunion was an unhappy one as Forud the Absent admonished his son’s lack of fighting prowess and unconventional choice of weapon. Forud announced his son was being sent to the Forward Post to learn how to fight for real.

Betelgeuse learned much from his officer Nasil and on the eve of battle saved Nasil from a demon’s arrow. During the great fight that followed Betelgeuse slayed his first, second, fourth and fifth demon, proving himself an expert marksman. It was not until he was knocked down and disoriented that his atlatl flew sinister, striking a fellow Knight in the chest.

We shall see what comes of it.

But hope was not yet lost for Cheleb still heard the song of the stars…

And So it Was…

That Cheleb’s Master Algol was resoundly beaten in the Senate. Senator Altair’s movement to cut the budget for pageantry passed without much opposition. Algol tasked Cheleb with the duty to intimidate Altair into recanting his movement. Cheleb did so, thinking that in his loyalty to his master he may catch the eye and heart of the lovely Cassiopeia.

But it was not meant to be.

And So it Was
That Tarf, recovering from the great battles of the Spring served as an aid to Senator Altair. The Senator, having been bullied into recanting his proposal, sent Tarf to approach Algol to help negotiate more favorable terms. Tarf approached the demon Speaker of Glass, a hoarder of secrets. The Speaker of Glass told Tarf many of Algol’s inner most thoughts so that there would be leverage. Tarf went and negotiated with the poor Senator, who was shaken at the young Knight’s knowledge. Tarf then learned a terrible secret. Senator Altair was possessed by the demon Gluttony. Tarf resolved to free the Senator and use this knowledge to play Gluttony and The Speaker of Glass against each other.

We shall see what comes of it.

And So it Was

Cheleb trained with young Tsih with Cassiopeia watched nearby. Tsih grew indignant and repeatedly insulted Cheleb, wondering why he was being relegated to nursemaid and guard while other Knights, such as Kerhah were renowned warriors. Cassiopeia, over hearing this, vowed to help Cheleb expand his influence at court. Cheleb sought to impress Cassiopeia or at least impress upon her his worth, but the gesture was not noticed and Cheleb grew dismayed at his own solitude.

But that all happened long ago, and now there are none who remember it.
