    I think I have puzzled it out. Forget what I said about a volcano. I think it's the Ashen Veil temple doing...well...something xD

    (wildly guessing, but it would fit geographicaly and at least one civ has responded to this world update.)

    Yeah that would probably be it. Balseraphs are on their way to the temple as we speak. :O

    I finally recieved the activation Email. Anyway, I'd like to play the Bannor, if you'd let me. Here is my starting story, I hope it's good:

    Lord Commander Constans had returned to the palace of Warrior's Promise, so named because of his proclamation that as long as it stood, Mazrea will never be threathened by another period of suffering. He had been among the scholars at Eagle's Haven, debating on the properties of the white slab they found there. Shortly after, he had made a series of surprise inspections to the new mines in the northern mountains to see if decent production had begun yet. He later made several trips to the east in response to rumours of the Bannor's old capital, and the Holy of Holies where the Angel Sabathiel still waited to resume communion with them.

    He had failed to find it. He came back to the palace with his retinue, hoping at least that the Council had kept order in his abscence. He hoped wrong. The forces in the west had encountered the Ngomele, a race of gnolls who had returned to savagery after Auric's reign, and the Kuriotates, who haven't. In a move that he considered idiotic, the Council had started a series of skirmishes against both factions, culiminating in a battle for an iron city, which the Kuriotates won. They had been busy massing armies for a conquest of the west when he had returned.

    "Foolishness! Rank foolishness!" After hearing the news, he had called together the Council and told them excatly what he tought of their doings.

    "But, they were abdominations! And people who consorted with abdominations!"

    "Did they worship demons? Toy with the borders between life and death? Attempted to bring another unnatural winter to Mazrea?"

    "N-No, but..."

    "Then they were not abdominations! Only people who do those deeds deserve that label."

    The councilman who had argued with him slumped back in his seat, defeated.

    "The mountains are rich with their own metals! There are fertile lands to the east and south lived on by no one except barbarians and greenskins! Why spend our strength on dedicated foes on the west, when we could be winning an empire that would save the world?"

    The rest of the councilmen were now attentive, ready to recive orders from the greatest warrior since the Age of Rebirth.

    "Envoys are to be sent to the Iron City. They will acknowledge it's conquest, and propose a treaty that would allow trade between our nations and free rein for them in the west. At the same time, send a force to the island just southwest of our city, and have them build fortifications in order to secure our position against the gnolls. The scholars at Eagle's Haven are to be both watched and encouraged to rediscover the secrets of magic and restore communion with Junil. We need to strengthen ourselves, we cannot be cought off-guard."

    "We must have victory." He then left, black cloak trailing behind him.

    ((OOC: Can there be multiple Altars of the Luonnotar in Mazrea? That was what I intended the white slab to be, but I can use it differently depending on your answer. Anyway, I hope I did well!))

    Edit: Accidentally made the post before I even finished half of it. Here's the full story.

    Edit 2: I hope I do better next post. This one wasn't as good as I imagined it.

    Well, cypher132 has been missing recently, and I don't know what to do about this MS.
    If enough people still want to participate, I'll carry it on, but, if nobody's interested, it will just have to die I suppose.

    But, until there's enough people decided on one, yeah, you can take the Bannor.
    I liked that story :)

    I love this rp story, even if majority of people are inactive and Cypher is missing. So please, I'd want this to continue.
    Going to make a short status update.

    I'm still here, but it doesn't seem to be very active.
    Half of the players never update, and 0.5 of the running team are missing.

    If I let this one die, I'll start another one, with only me as the GM, but it will probably run different.
    I'd want a more content-oriented game, and would only use my GM status for map updates and stuff probably, but, if the majority of people want to carry on with MSII, then, I'll carry it on with you :)

    I didn't get a PM, sorry about that :)
    That's okay, but I'm seriously considering starting a new one, we have three writers at the moment, and some of the others either aren't interested any more, or just haven't been one.
    And, without cypher132, I cannot edit the player list or anything :p

    If you would create a new story, what would it be about?

    It would be more like the original MS really.
    But, I'll play a civ, and the AI when they're unavailable, only acting as Game Moderator to step in when stuff happens that shouldn't.

    There won't be a storyline per say, it'll be more free-flowing, like the first one, where, with little interaction from cypher132, storylines developed, like the Plague, the towers, civ alliances, Brigit, the D'Tesh, the corrupted islands :)

    Hmmm...3 writers...sad but true. We could probably gain editability of the first posts by opening a new, identical thread and copying&pasting stuff there. (Would be even easier with the help of a mod.)

    In a new game...I'ld probably once more take the Kurios (I rather like them, they are a an Erebus version of Discworld Ankh-Morpokh in my mind :crazyeye::p) or an individual. But if I take the Kurios, I'ld probably develop them the same way I did in this Ms...might as well use the old posts then ;)

    Anyways, I'll probably follow you whatever you decide. But I won't be able to post more frequent than I did in the past.

    The thing is, that's another thread, and the forum is already cluttered with cypher132's threads.
    I'll try to move away from the Mega Story thread name though, and if he comes back, he can either start a new thread or take part in the new one.

    I have a map, going to use a section of it, its rather big, and scales nicely :)

    Heh, I'd rather you change some sections of the stories, may squeeze some civs together so you have to ;)

    If you two could get onto #erebus some time, we could discuss things better :)

    So, I think I should make it clear: a new Mega Story will be starting soonish.
    I need to finalize some details, like the name and what civs will be in at the start ect, so if you can get on chat, we can discuss. Once its open, I'll place ads in the lore threads in certain forums, and try to convince some more writers to get involved.

    Well, a new story it shall be then. I agree with you, however, that my version of the Kurios was rather...unique. To phrase it politely. I'll then probably go with an individual character, if you permit them. I'm afraid the chat is off-limits for me right now, I ve got a very limited internet time as it is. All I can do is try to drop in here once a day or very two days. Sorry.

    Ps: The new map looks very interesting :)

    I just meant, instead of copying and pasting, make them different?
    I like what you done with them, and I like the unique ways people view different civilizations :)
