#2967, "Global Quest Events"


          

Hi all,

I'm just writing to clear up the broadly held misconception that the Character Challenge event is held only for the benefit of the characters directly involved in the challenge. It is actually a global event that EVERYONE can get involved with.

That's right: Characters who did not roll as part of the challenge are still encouraged to get involved! There are some personal stakes for all of these characters designed to be a part of it, but everyone in Thera could have a reason to get involved.

Keep up with global echoes here: http://www.carrionfields.net/gechoes.php

I will be posting Heraldic Post articles in reply to this, along with other updates as necessary.

The sun rises and the sky burns momentarily with a thousand eerie colors. When it is over, you are left with a vague sense that something almost imperceptible has shifted. (Mon, 03 Feb 2020 20:50:44 +0000)

Stars begin to blur in the night sky, instilling marvel and terror in astronomers. (Tue, 11 Feb 2020 10:22:27 +0000)

A wave of hazy light washes across the sky and slowly fades. (Tue, 11 Feb 2020 10:22:51 +0000)

Word soon spreads that prophets, oracles and seers across Thera have begun suffering from a strange affliction... (Tue, 11 Feb 2020 10:23:29 +0000)

An earthquake erupts somewhere deep beneath western Thera, felt from Udgaard to Galadon. (Fri, 21 Feb 2020 17:36:45 +0000)

Heraldic Post articles (accuracy not verified by me):

Subject: Heraldic Post 1: Strange Lights and Dire Omens

Thera lit by strange colours!
Oracles wracked by agonizing visions!

For the third time in a generation, the sky has been lit with queer light and
the people of Thera are left scrabbling for answers.

Unfortunately, those gifted with the Sight seem to have come under direct
attack by these mysterious forces, reporting "ringing in their ears like knives
on glass" before bleeding profusely from their precognitively perceptive
pinnae.

They insist the lights make their condition worse.

Citing visions of "The Gates of Amun'khur" and the "judgment of the Great
Bleeding Eye", it seems that dire omens of Lord Nazmorghul loom large in our
future. A dark god heralding the end of creation, this bodes ill for us mere
mortals!

Those with long memories might recall the first instance of these strange
lights to be during the final death throes of one "Gilversplitz Widdershins",
Entropic Recruiter and automatic last-place contestant in any beauty pageant.
Could these events be another part of his incomprehensible schemes? What of the
creature that crawled out of his mouth?

Keep watch for our next issue to hear more as the story unfolds!

Subject: Heraldic Post 31: Quakes and Shakes and Eminent Mistakes

Hamsah retracts bounty on unafflicted seers following leper visit!
Earthquakes startle the western continent!

The illustrious Guild of Merchants declined to comment, though it doesn't take
an oracle to see the obvious financial benefits of having access to the only
known source of precognition on the face of Thera!

The mysterious seer, later identified as one "Argothus" shocked patrons of the
Eternal Star with warnings to cease their delvings into the oft-rumored
'ancient weapon', which "sleeps beneath the earth in the place of its making".
Insistent that such things should remain buried, he demonstrated his abilities
to peer beyond the veil with cryptic omens about the attendees that appear to
have a strong factual basis.

Is it possible that the quakes felt deep beneath the western continent are
related to this buried weapon? Intial reports indicate only superficial surface
damage, but perhaps something changed deep beneath the earth?

The devout have also noted that their Divine Patrons seem vexed by the
samephenomena that pains mortal oracles. With both our faith and our visions
for the future threatened, will Thera present a unified front against the
growing menace?

Keep watch for our next issue to hear more as the story unfolds!

Editors note: Issue number has been updated to maintain backissue continuity.
