Arc:Lies Within Us

From HollowWiki
This is a Mage's Guild RP.



Introduction

Among the Guild's of Lithrydel, the Mage's Guild of Xalious stands foremost as an unparalleled institute of education and advancement. The Shining Jewel in the Crown of the Xalious Mountain Range, where those blessed with the gift are promised prestige and power beyond their wildest imaginations. But where there is light, shadow too gathers. Power breeds corruption. Corruption festers, and soon, a rot settles in, sequestered away in the darkness. Where it can spread. Where it can grow.

Where it can wait.

Still reeling from the backlash of the Razurath genocide, The Mage's Guild attempts to consolidate itself, turning in towards its members, weeding out the dissidents and trying to recover from it's weakened state. Meanwhile, research long buried in the Guild's past is uncovered. Research perhaps best left buried.

As the curtain rises on a new Era of the Guild, ancient secrets are set to decide whether we will overcome the past, or succumb to it.




Prologue: Soul of the Stones

Following a trail of powerful arcane crystals, spanning the length and breadth of Lithrydel, Lanlan and Odhranos stumble upon the long-forgotten history of an ancient and powerful tribe. Though consigned to the dust of time, the legacy of the Robelous Tribe is far from deceased.

Act 1: Curiosity and the Cat

Spurred on by his experiences with the vagaries of magic, Odhranos begins compiling a thesis detailing the magical techniques of Lithrydel. While his research continues, machinations began stirring in the belly of the Guild, spurred on by the Guild's recent political debacle. The foundations of Xalious' prestigious Guild begin to crumble, from the insidious corruption within.

Act 2: Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Ordered by Administrator Brenwyn to apprehend a talented Larketian child, Odhranos and Quintessa set into motion a chain of events that sparks the flames of war with Larket and begins the slow but catastrophic dissolution of the Mages' Guild. Disappearances, disagreements and dead bodies starting to pile up, something sinister uncoils itself from the Guild's shadow, ready for its time in the sun.
