The Greatwood


Congratulations on making it through the barrier and completing Part I. The Spire of our plot!

The world is not yours yet, however....violent elemental storms are raging in the south and the west. North seems to be the only viable direction, into The Greatwood. Is there a way to settle these supernatural storms? Or perhaps another way out? What secrets can you learn from the Fae, who live here in the woods?

Time—and adventuring—will tell.

Be sure to check out the updated map and updated flora and fauna, as well as a new playable race: the Fae!

309 PC: Flowerbirth. Fiat Lux and the Spire...

Picking up the pieces after LongNight was never going to be easy. But no one could have expected quite how much things would change. Throughout Flowerbirth, the following occurred:

  1. Smack bang in the middle of the Fiat Lux festival, a group of brave (read:foolish) Outlanders decided to take on the Spire Demon. Surprising no one more than themselves, Roana, Remi, Ashetta and Ronin succeeded, though not without great cost. Ronin Taliesin died during the fight.
  2. Following the defeat of the demon, dissent spread like wildfire among the inhabitants of the Hollowed Grounds. Two factions emerged - those who wished to breach the Spire, like, yesterday and those who wished to wait and to learn more about it. These groups can be summarised quite well by comparing the characters of Rory and Roana...  
  3. Eventually, the Spire was breached by members of both groups,  - the Ascended proved the key to opening the monolith. And in they went...Roana, Are, Maea, Lucas, Kristopher, Jigano, Amalia, and Rory heading down into the Spire, and Samuel, Ashetta, Aedion, and Zariah going up. Both Kristopher and Aedion perished within.

      Below the Spire a strange pillar of light was glimpsed (Roana jumped in it and was spat out in the Greatwood, huh) but the others were blocked from further exploration when the air decided to be poisonous.

      Faith was tested at the very top of the Spire, and Zariah promised her life in exchange for passage through to the final chamber. Her willingness to sacrifice herself and her courage proved to be just what was needed to open the door, and Zariah survived the encounter.
  4. Within, the group were confronted with the Core, the physical counterpart to the Voice who, after three hundred years powering the Spire (and thus causing her own entrapment) was nothing more than a mummified child. 108 sacrificed herself by removing the power cell from the Core... and thus the barrier dropped.
  5. The Voice explained that she was the reason for the Outlanders being dropped into Caido. Using the last vestiges of her willpower, she scanned worlds and realities for those who might best be able to free her. And here you all are!
  6. Following the barrier dropping, the Greatwood was revealed! Since then, tentative explorations were made, only to be interrupted by some very suspicious Fae, such as Delah and her army of forest guardians. In fact, there are rumours of people going missing whilst exploring in the woods...and fed to giant world-making turtles, though not in the way you might expect.
  7. The Old Gods Vi, Rae, and Mort have differing opinions when it comes to the fall of the barrier, with Safrin receiving the brunt of the god's anger. How this will effect future interactions with her, is unknown.
  8. Ronin was returned to the land of the living thanks to a sacrifice made by his friends, making him the first on-site demi-god (not that he really knows that)
  9. A strange merchant with a wagon has also appeared on the Outskirts of the Hollowed Grounds, promising weird and wonderful wares in exchange for the most bizarre items, favours and stories...who is controlled behind the scenes by a wild fae called Arduinna. A figure to help or harm?
