Once upon a time, Eupé was born,

300 years later, after an eternal darkness, the people of Eupé rose up again, with towering structures, the realm of darkness had moulded the landscape into completely different shapes, There was no hope, one day, a young man known by the name of Tersea found an Artifact(Or Artefact) the artifact gave whoever worshipped it great powers; and there is those who choose to ignore the temptation, the corruption, the great power

due to the last thread getting a bit confusing, i have been asked(By Rock) to wipe the slate clean, so here it is, new story, new characters, new life, new rules

1.You are not allowed to be an animal, this does not prevent people being fantasy creatures who are sentient, IE: Centaurs, Merpeople,
2.Keep it clean, we dont want to get this locked
3.Dont control anybody elses character
4.Its a balanced game, IE: if the rebels have more peepz the artifact will make the worshippers stronger, and vice versa

((in your bios can you mention whether you are for or against the artefact? it makes the story easier to follow))

Tersea strode out of the darkness into the charred light, he wore a light amber cloak, and matching gloves, his leather-chainmail bond armour was light, but strong. tore from the corpses of the old imperial army was a shining steel sword, he squinted as the light shimmered off a small gem encrusted in a anitque pot, he picked it up and felt the surge of power rush into him

Lord Sauron sat on his throne, listening to another of his rabble go on about a fierce pirate, the dreaded "Hangman". The minister of trade begged him to place a bounty on this pirate's head... impatiently, he agreed to place a ransom of ten Thousand Gald on that scum's head to get the minister to leave him alone.

Finally, his conference was over... He had much more important things to worry about then how a low-life thief drove prices of wheat and cotton up.

"Good day, your Excellency," Minister of War Daveon Comwar bowed. "The army is proceeding excellently."

"Good... shall it be ready by the imminent moon?"

"I believe so, your honor. The men are almost all trained."

Excellent... Lord Sauron knew through the texts that the Artifact was somewhere in that miserable country... All he had to do was display his country's superior might, and take the artifact from it's cold hands...

Then the power of the ancients would be his. and soon... the world.

*BANG!*
"Aye, Cap'n! That be a good shot!"
"That bilge-rat is gonna sleep in the depths of Whaaale's belly from now on! Yah-ha-harr!"
As the scallywags cheered on, Captain Titus tucked away his flintlock, looking rather amused. The Devil Ray's captain floated face down, blood starting to infect the water around him. He turned to his now-prisoners, tied to a barrel of gunpowder.
"Aye, me hearties..." Titus started, his crew falling to silence, "... What do ye believe in?"
"W-we s-s-serve f-for th-he k-king of Eu-u-pé," one of the tied sailors rambled out, "A-and f-for h-him al-lone!!"
"Do ye, aye?" Titus replied, taking out his claymore. In one mighty swing, he decapitated the prisoner, his head rolling off deck. The other prisoners looked on in horror, while Titus' crew laughed to their delights.
"Now... what do ye believe in?"
"WE BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE RULER, AND WE SHALL SERVE YOU!!!" a prisoner blurted out, the others rasping him on the head for such a feeble answer. Disgusted, Titus kicks the barrel, sending the prisoners overboard. As he, and a hanful of his crew, swing back onto the Gallowmere, he gives his crew on the Devil Ray the signal. Raising a black flag, depicting a skull with a noose tied around its neck, the scurvy dogs cheered on, sailing forth into the horizon. As they were leaving the sight, Titus went to one of his mates, whispering into his ear. Nodding in agreement, the crummy took out his musket, and fired at the barrel floating a few yards away. The tied prisoners were engulfed in a fiery explosion, disturbing the water surface around them. No-one heard the prisoners scream, much to the fact that the prisoners were already dead.

The Artefact filled with a silvery liquid, almost silky to the touch, Tersea touched it with his finger it held on he raised it to his mouth, and placed it on his tongue it tasted sweet, like The Fairy Fruit of the Lost Glade, he raised the Artefact to his lips, and gulped in the sweet liquid... when the last of it had gone, Terseas eyes grew wide with happyness, he fell over giddy, as the liquid changed his body...

"Aye, me hearties!!" Titus began, holding a bottle of rum, "Feast to yer heart's delight!! Foer tomorrow, we raid once more!!!"
"Aye, Cap'n!!" the crew responded, clinking glasses and silverware and whooping about.
Ah, yes, the crew of the feared "Hangman" were celebrating their successful capture, drinking their spirits off in the Old Hag, a pub in the pirate haven of Porté D'scust. For it was custom that for evey ship they've captured, they'd drink away their victory, as so to not feel as though they've accomplished something. As the night dragged on (and as random drunken fights ensue), all fell silent, as Titus slammed a gilded box onto a round table, taking out an ancient dagger. Two of his crew unrolled a large map of the Helixro, depicting the coasts on it's east and west sides, along with all the major islands scattered about.
"Aye, me lads," Titus began, drawing the attention of the whole pub, "This dagger has long since ran in me bloodline fer the last 300 years!! It's said that this dagger was the one that won back the seas for bot you and I! To the ancients!! Hurrah!"
"Hurrah!!" the pub hollered back, stomping the floor and pounding the tables.
"Now, the dagger has been guiding me crew's vessels fer the last 30 years, and wherever it lands, we follow. Now, oh ancients, show me the way!!"
Titus tossed the dagger into the air. It started lingering left, towards some of the drunks on the second story balcony. Then, it wavered right, almost severing a lamp. Then, it self rightens, and plunges blade first straight down, everyone cleared the area, off of natural instinct. The dagger landed with a thud. All swarmed back around the table, with Titus looking on at where the dagger landed. A whisp of fear wandered around the room, for everyone knew what that place was.
Ishna Point. The most heavily guarded port in the Ashara Empire.
As his crew looked on in horror, Titus himself scratched his chin, under his thick, brown beard. He then took the dagger out of the map, and eyed at it, curiously.
"To Ishna, me lads!!"

Tersea woke, he felt different, Stronger somehow, he looked down at his hands they were tanned and slim, they were beautiful he spent a minute running his other hands over there smooth surface, he crawled to the nearest pool of water, his face and hair had changed, he was sculpted and handsome, he stood up, and felt strong, he picked up the artifact slung it in his bag, and set off to the nearest town, Porté D'scust...

"Hoist 'em high, ye scallywags!" one of the crew hollered, "Fer departure is nigh!"
The docks of Porté D'scust were buzzing with activity, for the whole town would be involved when Titus would prepare for another long voyage. Vendors scattered about the streets, selling their best goods and spices. Entertainers would wander about the crowds, reenacting one of the many myths that Titus would spread. Pubs would be packed with drunken landlubbers and scurvy dogs, making a fine profit for the day. For authority was nowhere present in the town of Porté D'scust; only brutality and boasting kept order in this haven.
"Cap'n!!" one of the cabin boys hollered, sliding down a rope next to Titus.
"Aye, what're ye buggin' about now?" Titus growled back, for cabin boys annoyed him so.
"We're short on people!" the cabin boy continued, "Ishna is heavily guarded and I think we-"
"Who cares what yer thoughs arr?!" Titus roared, seizing his claymore at the boy's throat, "If we need more people, then FIND THEM YARRSELF!!!"
And with a swift kick from the Cap'n, the cabin boy stumbled down the gangplank, with the crew laughing at his pathetic attempt to man-up. Mentally injured, the cabin boy rounds up the other kids, and scours about the town, trying to find more crummies for the raid.

A cold breeze blew through Saten's tent. Saten stirred, awakened by the breeze. He stepped out of bed, and put on his uniform. Stepping outside the tent, Saten observed the Sun slowly dawning upon the horizon. His second in command, Lieutenant Colonel Zarks, was already up and about. He gave the commander a good morning and proceeded to awaken the company commanders. The Quartermaster approached him and saluted. Saten returned the salute, and then the Quartermaster handed him a letter with the Seal of the Minister of War, his grandfather. "Thank you," said Saten, "you are dismissed." The Quartermaster saluted and walked away, and Saten returned to his quarters to read the letter.

"Dear Saten,

I am pleased to inform you that you have been reassigned to the 008th Regiment. The war with Eupe will come soon, and this army needs good commanders. I expect you will bring your best to this new command. The Emperor and I think very highly of your military prowess, do no let us down. You will remain at your current post, but gain the command of the four battalions of the adjacent outposts on the border, the 083rd, the 066th, the 063rd, and 050th, your current command. Colonel Bart has been reassigned from his command, and Zarks is to command the 050th battalion. I expect you know what to do.

With the highest regards,

Daveon Comwar"

Saten read the letter in delight, but with a taste of despair. He would have to learn a new position and new subordinates, but at the same time he felt pride in having pleased his majesty. Saten grabbed a second lieutenant and ordered him to send for Zarks and his adjutant, Muller. The two entered Saten's tent and saluted. Saten saluted, then ordered them to at ease.

"I have been reassigned to the commander of the 008th regiment. Zarks, you are now the commander of 050th battalion. I expect only the best."

Zarks saluted, and said, "Yes sir, Colonel."

"Muller, send for commanders of the 083rd, the 066th, and the 063rd battalions. They are to come immediately here for a staff meeting. Tell them the regiment is being reorganized in preparation for war. Dismissed."

Muller saluted, then left.

Saten turned to Zarks. "Learn your battalion well Zarks. I'll need your talent in the upcoming war."

Emperor Sauron stared at the morning sun as it dawned upon his great empire.

For years, he has lived in his father's shadow... Emperor Rock Sauron the Magnificent, he who had expanded Ashara to twice it's size...

Soon the curse of his father will forever be lifted from his shoulders... When the entire world is brought upon his control.

"SIRE!" his guard burst into the room. "Minister Comwar requires your immediate attention!"

"Very well... dismissed," Lord Sauron waved the boy away with a wave of his hand. So, that old badger finally was done with his army, was he?

He turned away from the dawn of the sun, and to the glimmer of his new dawn as crown emperor of the world.

* * *

"The Eupeans are in a constant state of array," Minister Comwar declared, "and that dreaded Hangman isn't exactly helping them get any better."

"So you're saying now is the perfect time to strike?" Sauron said with a glimmer of delight in his voice.

"Exactly, sir. I'm sure you remember my grandson, Saten? He has been recently appointed Commander of the 008th regiment?"

"You want your grandson to lead the strike?" Keeping the honor in the family...

"I assure you, he is very capable."

"Very well. Send a messenger, and tell him to attack our agreed upon first target..."

"Porté D'scust... That old pirate town, Sire?"

"Yes, it still their main port. Take control of their ports, and they shall have nothing."

"As you wish, sire," Comwar bowed as his master departed.

A change in the wind always told a tell-tale sign of bad luck...
"ASHARA DRAWS NEEAARR!! FLEE BY BOAT! RUN BY FOOT!! ASHARA DRAWS NEEAARR!!!"
A Eupéan messanger, baring multiple wounds and gashes, rode limp on horseback through the crowded streets of Porté D'scust, his forewarning echoing throughout the streets. As his steed slowed to a halt at the ports, it fell over from exhaustion, with its injured rider sprawling onto the hard, cobblestone warf. A crowd formed around the injured man, watching on in disbelief. Titus shoved his way through the crowds, knocking some of the observers onto their backs. He knealed beside the messanger, cradling his head in his hand.
"What happened, lad?" Titus asked, rather hush about his question.
"Ashara draws near..." the messanger croaked, handing Titus a glass orb, with a whirling disc inside. Titus took it up to his ear, his face turning grim. He also took out his ancient dagger, which was humming from the sphere's presence. The heavily wounded messanger gave out a long sigh, then faded away. The crowd fell silent. Then, tucking away his dagger, Titus stood up, looking around the crowds.
"Man yer vessels!! Lock all winders and doors!! The time to prepare is now!!!" Titus shouted amongst the crowds, for he knew that a battle was imminent, since the port was Eupé's largest. Losing the port will lead to not only Eupé to fall, but for Titus to flee to another port, ruining his feared reputation. As the crowds began to disperse, arming themselves and sealing their homes, Titus, along with a handful of his crew, strode over to the Old Hag, where a crazed drunk stood at the door, holding a flintlock. Titus picked up an empty bottle, and smashed it upon the drunk's head, causing the buffoon to fall over.
"What're ye doing merrymaking?!" Titus roared, grabbing the crowd's attention, "War is upon us!! The time fer preparing is now!!!"
And almost instantaneously, the customers of the Old Hag stormed out of the pub, for even they knew that the Hangman was dead serious.

Saten sat at the table with his four commanders, Lieutenant Colonel Zarks of the 050th, Lieutenant Colonel Rumsfeld of the 083rd, Lieutenant Colonel Wilson of the 066th, and Major Wu Fei of the 063rd. Saten scanned them briefly. Zarks was a reliable man, Saten had known the guy since he took control of the 050th. Wu Fei was a foreigner, he had beady black eyes and jet black hair that was pulled in pony tail. He was lean, and had scars all over his face from battles. Wilson looked like a viking. He had long blonde hair, a big beard, and deep blue eyes. He was stubby in stature, and the most muscular out of Saten's commanders. Rumsfeld was an old man. He had graying hair, and bright blue eyes, giving him an ambitious look. Saten would take advantage of this.

Saten began the meeting. "Good evening gentlemen, I am glad we were all able to gather here today. Now, to the business of reorganizing this brigade. As battalion commanders, I expect you to know your battalions inside and out. Know your commanders, and their companies. You must learn their strengths and weaknesses, I as I must learn yours. That is the true duty of an officer."

A messenger burst through the door, and handed Saten a letter.

"You forgot to salute, Corporal." said Saten coldly.

The corporal saluted immediately, and Saten smiled. He stood up smacked the corporal for his mistake.

"A mistake can lead to death corporal, don't you ever forget that."

"The message is t-to be t-top priority sir... C-Comwar wrote it h-hims-self." stuttered the Corporal.

"You are dismissed then."

The Corporal scurried out of the room. He regretted barging in on the Colonel's meeting.

Saten scanned the letter. "Looks like we're being ordered into battle, and to the Porté D'scust no less. The 007th Regiment will be taking over our posts. " Rumsfeld smiled gleefully. "Alright men, assemble your battalions. We begin our march towards Porté D'scust in 3 days. You are all dismissed."

The Commanders rode off to assemble their battalions. Saten pulled Zarks aside. "Your battalion will secure the road to Porté D'scust. I cannot stress to you enough the importance of this task. If we are caught by surprise by the Eupean army, or out supply line is cut, the 008th Regiment will be destroyed. Do you understand?"

"Sir yes sir!"

Saten walked into the mess hall to eat dinner, and found of his men, a private, passed out on the floor. Saten grabbed the man, and shot him in the head.

The soldiers looked at Saten in disbelief. "No one is drink in the middle of the day! Is that clear!?"

The men stood. "Sir yes sir!"

"Good, now back to your meals. Sergeant, clean this mess up."

Eagle strolled through the sleeping town of Synopsim. He sighed breathing in the cool and salty night air, the sounds of rolling waves created a peaceful atmosphere. Catching a pair of eyes behind him he silently drew out his souls dagger. The dagger was said to drain the victims life force it's origins were unknown. The thief slowly stalked the hooded figure in front of him. "This is going to be an easy one," he thought to himself as he drew out a wicked scimitar. His slow walk turned into a sprint as he attempted to stab his victim. Eagle suddenly turned around and lashed out. Blood splattered on the dockside as the thief fell to the ground his face shocked in agony as his soul was sucked away. Laughing silently to himself Eagle continued his midnight stroll. Finally coming to his destination he stepped into a dimly lit room.

As the crowds rushed out, a young man pinned Titus against the wall, removing his hood.
"GET YER HANDS OFF'ME, YOU BILGE RAT!!" Titus roared, grabbing the boy and hurling him across the room. For what small, pathetic lemming would challenge the sheer might of the Hangman? As Titus began to storm across the room, he took out his claymore, intent on cleaving this boy's cranium clean off.
But, as he was about to make his crushing blow, he stopped, and looked at the boy. Though he was small, compared to the large, blocky marauder that was about to slice his head off, he looked... different. Then, out of instinct, Titus took out his dagger, and, sure enough, it was thrashing about more than ever. Tucking it away, he picked up the boy, and stood him back up, with Titus grinning rather boldly.
"Aye... yer a mage, aye?" Titus asked, rather curiously, "Ye can be a great advantage to me... can ye cover the port in a dark veil, so that the enemy cannot see us?"

Tersea crashed into the wall, his head was spinning, when he regained his senses, the man was holding a small knife, "Aye... yer a mage, aye?" the man asked, rather curiously, "Ye can be a great advantage to me... can ye cover the port in a dark veil, so that the enemy cannot see us?"
"Which port, and when?" Tersea replyed angrily,"I can give it a shot," he picked himself up off the floor, "i'll do it, then take me to ishna point. i have some business in ashara..."
he held his hand out in a attempt at a handshake...

"Wonderful!" Titus bellowed, hugging the small boy (almost crushing his ribs). As the cap'n walked out of the Old Hag, he stopped really quick, and took out one of his flintlocks.
"Aye, ye might want this," Titus called back, tossing the boy the gun, along with a bag of shot tied to the barrel.

As the boy called out, Titus whipped around, his figure towering over the young man's.
"THIS ONE, YOU NINNY!!" Titus roared, now rather annoyed by this boy as well, "And make it fast!!" He proceeded to walk into the crowds of frantic people, making a b-line towards the Gallowmere.

Tersea mustered his strength, he had felt a new presence in his mind and the captain had confirmed it, "magic" he breathed as a flurry of blue sparks leapt to his fingertips at his command, he thought dark thoughts, as if he wanted to be invisible, i raised his hand in the shape of a gun and fired a solitary blue spark up into the sky, Tersea disapeared out of view, "Da*n" Tersea swore "Bigger" he thought the blue spark shot out along the ground and the veil expanded to capture it, "Bigger, Bigger!" the blue spark dived into the ocean and darted a 200 metres out, the veil captured the blue spark and stayed there. the town was invisible. Tersea struggled to keep the veil standing, but the artifact seemed to give him stolen strength...

Outlaw-Jack
11-25-2009, 07:50 PM
As the veil started to engulf the town, a sudden darkness plunged the town into night. Lamps and torches were lit, and the haven of Porté D'scust became luminescent. Now there were 5 ships under Titus' command:

-The Gallowmere, a towering Barque with 5 masts. Its hull was a pitch black with golden trim, with crimson sails reaching towards the sky. A large, metal wedge graced her bow, doubling as a three-barreled cannon. It easily dwarfed any other ship, much to the fact that it took half of the port to dock her. This was obviously Titus' flagship.

-The Saviour, a full rigged ship with 4 masts. It's sails were a thick beige with brown crosses centered in each one. A brown hull complimented the large sails. This would be the first time this vessel would be used in war.

- The Devil Ray, a schooner with 3 masts. It's large, white sails towered over the navy blue hull, so much so that the ship was actually taller than it was long. Although her specialty was trade, she's been modified to be used in war, especially in hit-n'-runs.

- The 東風, or East Wind, a junk with 3 masts. It's odd shape and awkward sails have always bewildered sailors, due to the fact that no-one has ever seen one like it. Its plain, white hull, with its sails depicting tranquil scenes of magnolias and streams, are in sharp contrast to its specialties: explosives and fire.

- and The Imp, a small, 2-mast boat. It bares only 8 cannons, and is the smallest of the fleet. With black sails depicting the Hangman's emblem and a grey hull, it looks more menacing than what its suppose to be. This ship is usually used as a bait in many of the Hangman's famous deception tactics.

Though there are other vessels and tall ships around the port, none stood out more prominently than Titus'. As the Hangman boarded the Gallowmere, he strode into his quarters, and took out an amulet, amongst his many treasures. It glowed a dark green as Titus picked it up. The amulet has been passed down for centuries, ever since the dark days of Eupé. He turned it around, and engraved on the back, in full Celtic, it read:
"To thee, my love, Hannah."

He tucked it away into his coat, and proceeded to walk back out onto the deck, the docks abuzz with activity.

Tersea still managing to control the illusion, ran towards the gallowmere, the gangplank was crowded with many pirates taking supplies: Cannon balls, Rations etc, Tersea Leapt the gap of water and landed on the side of the ship, and clambered up, his fingers latching on to every miniscule nook and cranny as he boarded the ship...

Saten was awoken to Zarks shaking him violently. "What is it commander?" he grumbled.

"Sir, you need to come look at this." Saten stumbled out of his bed, and looked off into the horizon.

"The port has disappeared sir."

"What on Earth? Let me get into uniform. Tell the commanders to continue their march. It is a sort of magic. Which means we have found what the Emperor has so desperately sought. Send word to the Emperor that the Artifact is here, and we shall be to the city by Noon."

Saten went to get dressed, and Zarks sent off one of his messengers.

The army did indeed reach the invisible port by Noon.

Saten and his commanders overlooked the invisible town. "Surround the veil over the town. Rumsfeld, and Wu Fei your battalion will move in from the left and right sides of the veil respectively. Wilson, your battalion is to be the rear guard a long with 2 companies from Zarks' battalion. Zarks, your other company is to guard our supply line, we cannot risk losing that before we take the port. We shall most likely only be fighting militia, but be wary of any surprise attacks. Everything else will come with time, but wary of the Hangman, we've received reports that he is docked here. Send orders to the men to burn any pirate ships on site. We do not want him to harm us. Citizens of the town are not to be harmed, as of our takeover they are citizens of the empire and shall receive treatment as such. Any unauthorized pillaging shall result in hanging."

"Move out!"

Thus the attack on Porté D'scust began.

((Meh, I'll be gone all day tomorrow, so don't expect anythin' outta me.))

As Titus stood about, looking around at the set-up, the young spellcaster slumped to his side, also looking around.
"Aye, lad," Titus began, rather calm, "It'd be times like this me hearties would whoop and hollar, fer the time is nigh before we'd go into war."
Titus tossed his amulet in the air, catching it by the chain.
"This amulet has long since been passed down from each generation; it's about time I finally laid my hands on it."
The amulet started to glow, much to the presence of the boy. He tucked it away, and put his hands to his mouth.
"The time is nigh, me hearties!!" Titus called out, the crowds now scrambling into their respective positions, "They'll take us dead befer we surrender!! Show no MERCY!!!"

***

All fell silent around Porté D'scust. Its streets were eerily vacant; its pubs emptied of its jolly clients. Half of the town sat quietly in their homes, wielding muskets and flintlocks, and occasionally peeking out from closed windows and street corners. Aged old men, children of all ages, even prostitutes and vendors wielded some sort of arliment, wether that be a gun or their fists. Meanwhile, on the outskirts of the town, hugging tightly to the edge of the veil, the Gallowmere, Saviour and Devil Ray laid waiting, for they knew that even the Asharans feared their presence as well. The East Wind was docked at the farthermost corner of the docks, its anxious crew stocking its cannons with gunpowder and bombs. About 100 meters from the town as well were the rest of the docked ships, laying in a line as to seal off any outside intrusions. And, of course, the Imp was docked prominently in front of the main road, with its hull filled with deadly amounts of gunpowder. As Titus looked about, pleased with what he saw, he gave a gesture, signaling for the men on the rooftops to set ablaze their bondfires. The smoke filled the air, and with the veil acting as a sort of seal, the town and the surrounding area faded into a thick haze, for this was one of the Hangman's most nortorious set-ups: the Blindfire.

Eagle drew out his dagger as he saw a dark haired man standing in front of him. "Who the hell are you," he yelled out angrily tightening his grip on the dagger. The unwelcome guest simply stated "Your worst nightmare!" With that Eagle Lunged at the man however every single thrust and slash was avoided by the unarmed man. Panting with effort Eagle drew out his second dagger. Very few men saw this dagger and lived to tell the tail. Shrouded in mystery it had great magic that could kill a man with it's cold and icy touch. The stranger took out a short sword form his long black cloak and began to advance towards Eagle. A strange yellow light began to surround Hawk his body started to glow with the energy causing the whole house to tremble. Beams of magic flew out in every direction. The dark figure agilely avoided all of the shots however. As he stopped to catch his breath Hawk threw the soul dagger at him. Yelping in anger the figure vanished the dagger hit the wall with a thud....

The veil was a living part of Tersea, he could feel its every flow, its every movement, he had to block it out, he sat his flintlock at his side, he realised the Captain was wary of the war that was outside the veil, asharans. the artifact sensed Terseas fear and changed to liquid and snaked around Terseas, finger, then his hand then his forearm, until it was a spiral, the gem at its eye, He flinched as the molten metal solidified trapping a few hairs in the process... the Veil quivered with excitment as the Haze began to build...

((Ok, I've got acces to a computer here, so here goes.))

The front line soldiers were met by a smog and silence. Rumsfeld had ordered his troops to head straight for the docks, despite the blindfire. Wu Fei grew cautious at the report of the blindfire and ordered his troops proceed carefully and check every house, burning those that resisted. The Fei battalion left many homes in flames, proceeding far more slowly.

Saten was pleased at the report for Fei's battalion, but worried for Rumsfeld's men.

"Send an order for Wilson to seize the discricts behind Rumsfeld, lest we risk a civilian uprising."

The messenger ran off to fulfill his duty.

Saten facepalmed.

"The Hangman is going to make me hang Rumsfeld, rushing into the blindfire like that."

"Send another order to advise Rumsfeld to slow his march. We cannot risk disorganization!"

The order might have been too late.

Tersea felt the Ship break the veil only to have it reseal around him, "they are in" He whispered and took off to the nearest pub. He ran inside, Pulled up a bottle of rum an ran outside. He needed a rag quickly, he ran up to the nearest prostitute and ripped the arm off her blouse, he stuffed it into the bottle and ran up to the main road, despite the blind fire he could see the heat coming off the soldiers standing infront of the Imp, A Messenger called out to the commander of the battalion "Rumsfield! Wait! Saten advises you to slow down!" Tersea Allowed a spark of magic to create a flame on the tip of his thumb rather like a lighter, he applied the magic flame to the rag, until it started burning, he lobbed the makeshift bomb at the small ship. it caught fire and the Imp exploded killing every soldier in the 500 strong battalion.. the shockwave rippled out, tearing roofs off houses, Tersea ran he ran straight down the street his magic lifting him up onto the rooftop, the ripple appeared to be being funneled down the main street Tersea Stopped, He flipped backwards ontop of the ripple guiding it with his magic towards the burning houses and the Asharan Soldiers burning them, he tainted the ripple with the darkest soul magic he could find, (Similar to that of "the Soul Blade") the ripple screeched into the Asharans as it devoured their souls,

He arrived back at the Cap'n side, "1000 dead..." Tersea panted, Imp blown up.... They know the magic... and with that he collapsed

((This is a one off)) "Aye' The Imp' Be the fines' ship in the whole seven seas!" The Hangman yelled

Saten received the report...

Two battalions completely obliterated...

He was furious.

"Order Wilson to burn down the entire town. No man, woman, or child is to survive. Fire the catapults at the Hangman."

He turned to his guard, composed of 20 men. "Gather the first company. We're going to kill the Hangman."

Saten walked onto the docks. Night had fallen, his men had won. Causalities were estimated to be in the thousands, and Rumsfeld and Wu Fei were dead. They had failed to seize the Artefact, but had seized the port and all its assets. The Hangman had retreated, and half the town had been turned to ash.

Saten ordered his men to seize all the goods they could and send them back to the Emperor.

With this victory, Eupe shall fall.

He ordered for Zarks.

Zarks came an hour later, with bags over his eyes. "Send scouts all along each of the roads, Eupe will attempt to take back this port."

Zarks saluted, and walked off to check his battalion.

Saten beckoned to a messenger. "Head straight for Ashara's capital, report that we have taken the port with a large amount of causalities, estimated to be in the thousands. Most of the town has been turned to ash due to heavy resistance. We will hold here until reinforcements arrive."

"Aye aye sir!" The messenger saluted then ran straight for the capital.

Saten sat down on a crate, and swore to himself. "I'll kill that Hangman for what he has done to my regiment."

Tersea had took over the ship, the captain obviously in some sort of daze, the ship pulled out of port as the regiment rounded the corner, he reached into tituses pocket and pulled out a map, it had various, stab marks but all but one were covered in a blood X. Port Ishna, "TO ISHNA!" Tersea yelled to the crew as the scurried around, Tersea released the veil and felt it collapse, releasing the energy would crumble a few buildings but what did that matter, everyone was dead, They sailed off soon disapearing into the smog.

-Name: Ryuu Uzimaki

-Alias: The Reaper, or that guy that just kills people.

-Biography: Dosn't care about the artifact, but just helps people get it... or destroy it. It depends on the amount of money trading hands.
He was trained since he was a kid, and has recently learned magic. Isn't too good, but can pick up rocks the size of a pillow. he can also control water in such a way that the atom movement slows and it becomes ice, along with being able to move it around in a three dementional space. Has really bad memory, doesn't remember much about his childhood.

-Affiliation: None at this time, he just kills for money.

-Traits: A trained assassin, usually works for money, but it learning the art of Hydrokinesis and Telekinesis. (Controlling water and space). Wields a katana, some small daggers and battle orbs. (Battle Orbs have magic inside that when broken , do various things, such as set things on fire. The magic equivalent of grenades.) He wears a black robe, but can tie it around him in such a way that it doesn't get in the way when he runs. He has a small black dog/wolf that can run faster then him, but isn't much in terms of combat. He is mostly kept for company.

-Current location: Dark Forest

((Thanks! I used to RP A TON on places like neopets and roblox forums, but that was YEARS ago...))
Ryuu walks fastly (a cookie to whoever guesses correctly the movie this is from!)to find a certain person who had killed someone's friend who was apparently hiding out in these woods. He came to a lake and saw someone laying on the banks, with a scar across his left cheek, just like the person who hired him said. Just as he was about to stab him in the head, he jumped up and slapped Ryuu across the face, and pined him to the ground, choking him.

"How are you so strong?" he managed to gasp. The man flung him against a tree and said, "Devotion."
Ryuu grabbed an orb and threw it at the man, and it exploded in a fury of acid, melting at the skin of him. he jumped into the water (to wash the acid off)with a scream, and Ryuu froze the water around him. The ice was starting to break, but Ryuu gently placed 6 orbs around in various places on the ice, some he sunk to the bottom with his Hydrokinisis. He ran a couple yards back, and climbed into a tree, and made some moisture in the air into a sharp piece of ice, and flung it to the orb in the middle of the ice.

The orbs exploded with an unearthly sound, and the pieces of debris and human body parts strung themselves together with energy and condensed into a ball, leaving no trace of the explosion.
"Devoted to who?" he asked the ball of rubble and human remains as he threw it into the water.

((Oi.. computer died. Typing from PS3.. blaarrrrghh))

Porté D'scust was lost... for now. The Imp worked perfectly, but now Titus needed another "bait-boat". This kid... there was more to him than he thought.
As his makeshift armada set sail across the Helixro, an Asharan vessel, with two gun decks and 3 large masts, came into view. She was perfect...
"Aye... watch this," Titus said to the boy, grinning malevolently. The Gallowmere sailed forth toward the Asharan boat, as though intent on ramming her. The panicking Asharans desperately attempted to aim her guns at the Gallowmere, but as she exposed her side...
"FIIIRRRREE!!!"

Kern

"FIIIRRRREE!!!" Titus Yelled, the scatter shot took out the sails, preventing the escape,
Tersea who was up in the masts was shocked at the captains sudden return to life, He drew his dagger, sliced the rope and swung, classically from one ship to another, he drew his flintlock as he landed and shot the Asharan commander in the head, he collapsed to the floor, and the crew soon collapsed to terseas command, he tied the crew up to a life boat and pushed it out to sea, "Eairh Fereais" he murmured, as the small boat began to burn...

So... some child found HIS destiny... No one will stand in the way of destiny!

"Continue the invasion!" Sauron barked. "Send your grandson out to find this boy... Tell him not to return unless he has the artifact in his grasp!"

"Yes sir! Praise Ashara!" and the minister rushed out.

This boy threatened the formation of his legacy... however, if this messenger was to be believed... Then the artifact WAS real...

And so, too, might be Sauron's place in history.

Tersea clambered onto the gallowmere as a bustling port came into view. "Ishna" he whispered to titus who had retreated back into his mind ever since Port D'custe had been destroyed, Tersea noticed a small ship leaving the port making a bee line towards them, with the Asharan Militias emblem on its flag, Tersea dove out the boat into the cold ocean, the Artifact seem to emanate a strange heat as tersea struggled against the current, Terseas lungs gasped for air as he swam towards the shore.

Tersea clambered onto the soft sand, but did not rest, he crawled up to the edge of a dune, and collapsed, he was wet his clothes were ripped and he was tired, he was worried for the gallowmere and what would have happened to the crew...

"So I've been specially charged to find the Artefact..."

Saten crumpled the letter, and tossed it into the fire.

He looked to Zarks and Wilson. "We've got to find the kid that killed the Fei and Rumsfeld battalions."

"Unfortunately, we don't have any confirmation on his looks or age, just that it is a male."

Saten glanced out the window at the blue skies of Port D'custe. The seagulls were soaring high above the ruined city, and he became nostalgic, just for a moment, but they brought him an idea.

"Send scouts and spies to every known port and city. Their orders are to find and report any rumors or evidence of the Artefact or magical activity. Also, we shall send a letter to the empire pleading that he send orders to kill the Hangman. He may be the cause of our pain."
