Thanreus is seeing a touch of conflict, but Mortifax will see to it that it explodes into a true war. And to begin his unseen campaign, he will reach his fingers into the minds of the few individuals who will sway the armies and civillians to war - your commanders.
Compose a piece of writing, in any style you wish (journal entries, letters, prose) showing Mortifax manipulating your commander to war. This can come in any number of ways of your choice, including haunting whispers, prophetic visions, hallucinations, manipulation of documents, possession of servants and messangers, etc. These pieces of writing should precipitate action and conflict with other races, as well as give insight into the weakness of your race, epitomized in your commander, that have allowed Mortifax to worm his way into their minds.
Minimum word count is 200 words.
Quote from KomachiI definitely agree with the contrast between our team and others - we have only 1 B, and that's mostly to show the possibility of using poison and subterfuge rather than anything inherently evil. I think we can go as far as to say perhaps we're the most "good" force of the lot - whether lawful/neutral/chaotic, in the classic sense of the word.
Quote from Komachi
Conflict: Cloudwalkers, in their flying city, sees the forces of evil far away forming an army to drive out the group, to hunt all the species and take them as living batteries of mana or slaves for manual labor. Despite great reluctance, they can't handle the swarms alone, so they contact the nearest species, the Feyrin. The Feyrin get in touch with the Annaki and the Esferi, who in turn invite the Platyn, who also naturally bring Valeshii to the table. After some deliberation in a Conclave, the groups agree to work together, though the alliance is rocky from the start as the Valeshii and Cloudwalkers were never friendly with each other. More of an alliance out of necessity rather than a long-standing friendly atmosphere, these neighbors will need to learn to work together if they are to defend themselves against the enemies.
Quote from Link(Sorry for the triple post).
Here's an outline of some of the things we've discussed, SmallChild.
1. The Cloudwalkers notice whatever threat is looking on the horizon that's going to encourage all of our races to band together. They contact the Feyrin/possibly the Esferi. The Feyrin contact everyone else.
2. The ancestors of the Cloudwalkers, the Vosuj, were (accidentally/not maliciously) wiped out by the Xanten, the Vaelshii's ancestors. Thus, the two races don't get along very well.
3. We're still looking for a team name we can all agree upon.
4. I'm sure I've missed some things...
