Purpose of this Page
This page lists current and past arcs and tournaments. Those looking to engage in active plots should look here to see what's happening in Hollow.
Individual rps, duels, and artifacts should not be listed here. Only those events which bring together multiple players belong on this page.
For over a year, strange and deadly events have occurred without explanation. From unprovoked attacks on Frostmaw to the elevated capabilities of dangerous key characters, a threat has lurked in the shadows of almost every Lithrydelian kingdom. It has moved without notice, damaging morale and tearing families apart. It may have had a direct hand in such wars as were seen in Sauriangate and Township Troopers, and perhaps even worse conflicts.
Now we stand at the precipice of a great and terrible thing, for that threat is about to make itself known. Death comes for Lithrydel, steadfast and vengeful. Yet it may be revealed that all the dark armies of bitter men with minds for revenge cannot hold a candle to the sorrows of those who have lost, and the depths they would plunge to bring back those they failed.
For some, these next days will be their last. What they leave behind will come to define them in the passing...
Most everyone in Lithrydel and Rynvale Island has an aura that can be seen. This is no secret to the magically gifted, but there is something no aura-seers have said. The commonality of guilty auras, of resentful ones, ones that trail despair like a cloud of fog. If one isn't seen, it must be the sign of a cold-blooded killer, or of one whose soul has long embraced and reconciled past tragedy. The strange girl who came as a stowaway on a Cenril ship is no exception. The cheery personality of the traveling songstress is driven by the need to escape, to just pretend and forget for one moment, that the aura of despair that most share is on her as well, plaguing her memories with every interaction.
Fueled by rumors that the uyeer are from a place called "outer space", Kreekitaka begins an investigation into this realm, gathering the best minds he can find to search for a way to find out what's truly out there.
Tensions soared the night an informal coven of witches gathered in secret to resurrect Valrae Ivy Baines, convicted enemy of the Larket state. Now, with her aid, the barrier that protects Cenril from Kahran and his dark army is restored but the city's problems are far from solved. Peace is fragile and idle minds lead to idle chatter. Who is Uma Abelin, and whose interests does she protect? Can Cenril’s witches be trusted - was their leap of faith worth the potential conflict with neighboring Larket?
Will the powers at play within the barrier destroy the city before Kahran even makes his second attempt?
Death stalks Frostmaw's frozen forests. Recently, citizens of the City of War have found themselves hunted by an enormous, ferocious beast when venturing beyond the city gates and into the wild. Strange tracks have been seen winding between the trees: a bear's prints leading into a patch of disturbed ground, but only a man's leaving. The numerous deaths and the disruption to the giants' livelihoods forced Aslfur, a woodsman, to seek out the help of Encara Val'thyrion, a wayward drow and mercenary. Encara soon found herself working alongside Ranger's Guild members Orikahn and Aira to find the creature wreaking havoc in the Western Wilds.
What began as a bear hunt has now evolved into a dark mystery. Who are the witches that watch Tovald from their obsidian mirrors? Why are they controlling him, forcing him to undergo the change into a monstrous beast... and what is their ultimate goal?
Being as old and large as Scandal is, comes at a hefty cost. It would seem that Scandal is slowly losing the ability to transform on his own, and he has been spending more and more time as a dragon, unable to revert back to his more humanoid form. At the suggestion of Lanara, Scandal is made aware of a ritual that can lengthen the period between his transformations. To do so, they will have to travel all over the realm, gathering the necessary ingredients, before they are able to enchant a talisman with such a powerful spell. Hopeful that this will even work, the unlikely friends are looking for others to join in on their quest for the items, such as healers, trackers, and those that can provide defense should something go awry.
With Vailkrin's throne still empty after Kasyr's abdication, unrest appears to have fallen over the City of the Dead. The Houses are in turmoil, engrossed in a covert war that is fought only in the shadows as they vie for control of the city. Most notable is the strain that has arisen between House Mahara and the much younger House Dragana. With Lady Dragana rising to master of the Necromancer's Guild, and her thirst for knowledge no secret, House Mahara fears their patronage over the Black Library may be threatened.
House Mahara isn't the only House in Vailkrin nobility at risk, though. Others are targeted too, their falls an imminent danger. Will Vailkrin's current aristocracy last? Or will it be overthrown?
If these arcs aren't progressed soon, I'll bump them to inactive. Josleen (talk)
Since the liberation of Sage from the drow, those of the Elves that wanted to return to the forest wasted no time in doing so, while a small portion of them remained behind in Frostmaw. However, due to the sudden rise of the Elven population, a plague has swept over the forest, causing the trees to rot from the inside out. With Tiphareth's curse continuously spreading, the elves are faced with potentially losing their ancestral home once more.
Deep within the plains of Venturil, a place known for hostility, lurks something unknown. A power from another time is brought forth into someone. Scattered scenes of carcasses are being discovered. Evidence of their rituals. What exactly is happening? These casters lay in wait, perfecting their technique. Only the choice for a random adventure shines a light on what they have been doing. Now, their efforts have been discovered and everything they have worked to build could either spill forth into the world or crumble at the hands of others.
