    Section Six starts in 1.75 hours. That will be 7pm CST (GMT - 6).

    Good(ish) characters of LEVEL 10 or below.

    We will meet at the Iron Minogon in Webster's Landing. Just assume that your character received a mysterious invitation.

    I will be IG as Taran if you have any questions!

    Uh, what happened to my message? Two paragraphs now random impulses across the interwebs ...

    Take care, Scratch.

    Sam and Hugdish's wedding will begin in about 4 hours from this post. Yay!

    scratch_flannigan  3 weeks ago

    Section Six starts in 2 hours. That will be 7pm CDT (GMT - 5).

    Good(ish) characters of LEVEL 9 or below.

    This week will be a bit different, with time being "frozen" at the end of the last event.

    There will be a portal in the Iron Minogon that will take your character to the very start of the Temple level in the Yuan Ti caves.

    If you did not join last week, that is perfectly ok. Just assume that you caught up with us like we do whenever someone shows up late.

    If your character has never been on a section six mission, you can assume that you stumbled on us while exploring !

    It is a little unorthodox, but we will make it all work! biglaugh

    I will be IG as Taran if you have any questions!

The White Rose explores the beauty of the elven glades.

The magic in her voice is stronger every day.

And the light of her spirit grows too bright to hide.

Guardians

Through darkened paths below
We hear the island’s cries
The moon begin to glow
The guardians arise

What’s lost may yet be found
The four must stand as one
With nightmares all around
Our journey’s just begun

Calling out your name
She pleads for us to aid
We’ll face the shadowed flame
We’re standing unafraid

Though all may be betrayed
We’re standing unafraid

A home worth fighting for
We’ll take the sacred vow
We hear the dragon’s roar
There’s no turning back now

Our backs against the wall
Pressed up against our friends
The curtain starts to fall
We’ll fight until the end

Beneath the ancient boughs
From darkness to the dawn
‘Till we must take our bows
‘Till our last light is gone

‘Till we must take our bows
‘Till our last light is gone


A song for those who would guard the island’s heart. From the elves, to the angels, to the phoenix. From Empyrean to Blood Guard.

This song is not for me. Or maybe it is. I’m not a warrior, but there are many ways someone can fight.

For years now, I’ve heard her singing to me from below. The white light. The island’s song. The spirit path.

When I went below, it seemed to answer me.

I’d do anything to protect my home. But what can one songstress do, with a whole island under threat of war?

Despite the name, I’m not sure I could ever guard anything.

Stand Alone

Far across a shattered moor,
You’ll ride through the starlight.
Driven from a world at war,
Through the night.

Going where the roads are gone.
Far from all we’ve known.
Yourselves to rely upon,
All alone,

Through the mountains, through the rain
Cross the desert, cross the plains,
Brave the worst, endure the pain.
You who stand alone..

Hooded cloaks beneath the skies,
Bow and arrow at your side,
Determination in your eyes,
You who stand alone...

Brothers of the Woods, Arise!
Walk the wilds, be our eyes!
Brothers of the Woods, Arise!
You who stand alone!

Voices call across the lake,
from the shadows deep
Follow them and come awake,
Take the leap...

Forget the sorrow and the fear
Cold winds on your skin.
Something whispers in your ear,
Don’t give in.

Through the mist and through the brine,
Push aside the twisting vines,
Follow where the stars align,
You who stand alone!

Laugh or cry, no one will see.
Leave behind the crown’s decree,
Keep on riding, ‘till we’re free,
You who stand alone!

Brothers of the Woods, Arise!
Take up your bow and emerald guise,
Brothers of the Woods, Arise!
You who stand alone!


A song for the Brotherhood.

They are the rangers trained in the ways of the elves. The ones who stand alone against the wilds.

They’ve fallen so far. Can the Brotherhood rise again?

I want to see it happen.

Imagine what we could do if we remembered all of the lessons we’ve lost.

Mother,

You know by now that I’ve told them the truth. You know by now that I’ve made my choice.

The island gave me a gift. The white light. I know in my heart how important that light is. I have to protect it. Even if it means I must protect it from you.

And so, I can’t go back to you. I can’t serve you in your wars. I can’t be at your beck and call any longer.

A lot has changed since all of this began. I’ve grown up. Made a name for myself. Saved my city, chosen my path.

But no matter what light or darkness I’ve seen. No matter how I have to renounce you or what keepsakes they make me burn. I could never hate you the way they do.

Some of the elves have pledged to protect me if you come looking. I pray that you won’t. I pray you’ll understand that this is what I want.

Maybe one day, I’ll see you again. Maybe I’ll learn a song that sets you free of all your darkness. And you’ll smile the way you did when I was young.

I’ve tried all my life to never ask you for anything. But I ask you. If you have any love for me. If I was ever anything to you but a weapon. Then, please...

Let me go.

Let me try, this once, to be the heroine I always imagined.

Your little one,
Lauren

.......

Deep within the walled city of Dragon's Watch, she studied the letter with features carved from stone.

It was not long before her fingers closed over the paper, sparks of aether flaring across dark skin.

Soon, only ashes would fall through her fingers.

Towards The Dawn

A white blooming flower,
Running away,
Into the day.
Yet I’m still in her tower,
Lost and astray,
Still in her sway.

As I'm breathing the fresh air
Here on the stage,
turning the page
Something in me was left there
Still in the cage,
twisting in rage.

And still, the dark is inside me
I've been running and
I've been fighting and
Still, her voice would bind me
I've been lying and
I've been crying and
Still, her steps are behind me
I've been falling and
I've been flying and
Still, the darkness confines me
As I run towards the dawn

I'm still at the trial
The pyres arise
Cover your eyes
As they spew all their bile
Ashes and lies
Blotting the skies

They call me a traitor
Silence the jeers
Cover your ears
I will be something greater
Swallow the tears
Swallow the fears

And still, the nightmares inside me
I've been running and
I've been fighting and
Still, their voices deride me
I've been singing and
I've been gliding and
Still, the city divides me
I've been falling and
I've been flying and
Still, her spirit's inside me
As I run towards the dawn.

We're still in the twilight
Lighting our flame
Playing their game
But we're running towards daylight
Making our name
Never ashamed

Take my hand and run with me
Into the light
Into the fight
Calling out like a banshee
Out of the night
We'll be all right.

And still, those thoughts are inside us
We've been running and
We've been fighting and
Still, the pain may find us
We've been singing and
We've been rising and
Still, the darkness would bind us
We've been falling and
We've been flying and
Still, it gathers behind us
As we run towards the dawn.


A song of escaping the darkness.

It hasn't been easy leaving mother behind. But I had too. There was no other way.

Writing this helped me get some of the feelings out.

The trial was brutal. As cruel as anything Mother would have done. I didn't think I'd survive. And yet..

I'm still here. A true noble of the Kreis. No longer living a lie.

I never imagined I'd get this far. But I'm still here.

She taught me to be strong. For all her cruelties, she never doubted me.

I wish I could speak to her just once more.

Mother...

I miss you more than anything.
