Work in Progress / Shapers of the First Continent - Chapter 4
« on: January 20, 2018, 02:35:39 PM »
Bored by the sight of the settlement, Vyorzgull decides to head North West, beyond White Rush, to explore the continent further. He reaches a large forest which he will later find out it's called Mardogan's Bounty (create forest, 1 purity), populated by savage beasts of all shapes and kinds. Lying close to the forest there was another human monument of dirt, boulders and wood works, called Mardogan (create settlement, 1 Prime), which claimed the forest as it's own.

Vyorzgull's pilgrimage continues east to the Iron Kettle mountain (create mountain, 1 purity), named after it's rich iron deposits and the cauldron like depression filled with water at the top. Travelling further south he ends up stopping near the forest of Lakewood (create forest, 1 purity). West of it, like a wall against the sea, lies a mountain range called Ilhdun's Wall (Who the hell is Ilhdun?, Vyorzgull thought to himself)(create mountain range, 1 purity).
Got the map. Sorry for the poor quality of the edits. I marked Ilhdun's Wall by two Xs since I wasn't sure how to get that without messing everything up there.

Work in Progress / The City States - Chapter 2

 Vyorzgull waited... And he waited... And...he waited some more. Apparently, he underestimated his patience.  By a lot.

 He saw things that would have taken eons to complete. He felt how this world suddenly came to life, he saw the large landmass just erupting from the sea and be swiftly populated by creatures. And that black sphere, that elemental crucible from which all life, big and small, came from. Was he afraid?

 Afraid by the powerful beings that made this world possible? Their minions that spread like the flames of dying stars, building, planning, plotting, killing? The thought of this angered him. He is not afraid! He shall descend to this world and make his presence known.

 Vyorzgull finally finds himself wandering in the lush plains that are south west of the Central Mountains. The plains we're mostly populated by large herds of wild horses (create horses, 1 purity), but further south there was a settlement. More specifically, a collection of dirty clay huts, pastures, haystacks, fields of cereal and fiber plants,  all concentrated around a primitive, yet large settlement, surrounded by moats, palisades, earth ramparts and stone towers (create large fortified settlement, 2 Prime). The fortress was housing thousands of people and it could be spotted from afar dominating the surroundings.

 The inhabitants were scattered around their hovels, working on the fields or tending to their livestock. Most of them either ignored Vyorzgull, but he could hear a few of them whispering about the lone traveller that was gazing at the fortress of Ulhzvir. Legend has it that the fortress was built by the inhabitants of a few villages from the central plains after stories of a wrathful deity disguised as an old man wanders the world setting villages on fire. From what started as a small hillfort, Ulhzvir became a city in its own rights, attracting settlers that came here for the security ensured by its walls, but also by its warriors (settlement attribute: Warfare, 1 Prime).

 Not all the people that wanted to settle there came with peaceful thoughts. That was not surprising since it did not took to long after life was created for humans to start hunting and killing each other, and the plains under the Central Mountains were the scenes of numerous confrontations as each clan or tribe was convinced of its ancient rights to rule over the grasslands, the lakes, the groves and the foothills of the mountains. And the men of Ulhzvir ended up triumphant.

 From the stone gatehouse of the fortress a sizable group of heavily armed horsemen with green kite shields exited Ulhzvir and were heading east, towards Tascrig. Word came from Gofu traders of the destruction of the city and a flying winged mountain that was heading towards it. At first, the rumours were dismissed by the Ulhzvirians as the people of Gofu were known to be a mystical and some might say an insane bunch. But when their own scouting parties and people from Ulhkan (create settlement, 1 Prime) confirmed the sightings, the Grand  Lerh himself ordered fifty mounted warriors to be sent there. Vyorzgull could feel that something was happening there, something that greatly disturbed both the elements of Earth and Air.
Here is the location of Ulhzvir and Ulhkan.

He knew his name...But he did not know his purpose nor what he was or when and how he came into being. For so long he has been drifting aimlessly into the endless void.

Until he noticed something that caught his interest. In his travels he saw the stars burning like eternal lighthouses into the dark sea of the void and the countless lifeless worlds, some no more than barren rocks. But this world... He can sense something that cannot be ignored. He sensed life. He sensed thoughts, other beings, he sensed consciousness.

Vyorzgull approaches, carefully, yet impatient... Things start to make sense now, Vyorzgull thinks to himself. After all this time, he is suddenly aware of his powers and of all the possibilities they bring to him.
