It is a sunny morning. The streets are in a riot as the Empire is starting to crumble. Anthony and Alia prepare for a great quest that will take them to unspeakable places. Mara Jade and CivGeneral are preparing with them. But their quest didn't begin now. It began 1500 years ago, in the time of Mages and Elves, when Magic surrounded everything. During this time, a great and powerful man, named Vehk, was the master of all powers. He then started to teahc a pupil, as Vehk's time was running out. He needed to pass on his teachings. He chose as his student, Akavir. Flash back to 1500 years ago Ald-Vehk(Ald means Elder, First): Akavir, you are a great student of my teachings, but I fear they will be taught to the wrong people. I am going to hide my book, and I want you to help me. We are going to the mountains that line the coast west of the Egyptian lowlands. Akavir: Ald-Vehk, I will be honored to help you. So the two traveled from the Egyptian Lowlands to the Mountains. Akavir kept a journal on every place they went, down to the last detail. When they finally hid it, Ald-Vehk cast a spell, called Soul Trap, and any soul with cam near would be trapped forever, and it will be forced to protect the tomb. Ald-Vehk's teachings were written in the forgotten Daedric Runes. The Book of Daedra was hidden a 200 years before Ald-Vehk's time, and hidden in the Aldmeri Cardruhn (Cardruhn means Ancestral Tomb). Guarding the Aldmeri Cardruhn is the Aldmeri Ancestor Guardian, which cannot be defeated. But 175 years before Ald-Vehk's time, a group of people called the Psijics(Silent P) gathered in a place called Arkhandator. There, all but 1 Psijic sacrificed themselves to create a sword to destory the Aldmeri Guardian. The last Psijic Warrior took the sword, and headed to the Aldmeri Cardruhn. On his way, he was attacked by Lord Monomyth of the Dunmer(Dun means Dark or Evil, mer means people, folk), and he used his minions, called Golden Saints(they are far from saints) to kill the Psijic. Lord Monomyth then took the sword, and hid in the hills that are around Aureus. There he stayed for 20 seeds (years in the ancient times) undisturbed. Then, the Aldmeri Savior, and Godess, Ahnissi attacked Monomyth. He was no match for Ahnissi, and she killed him. Ahnissi then took Monomyth's Book of Saints, and placed it in a place called Lorkhan Ruins. Ahnissi then put the sword back in the Psijic ruins of Arkhandator. 100 years later, a Aldmeri called Ffoulke, wrote the Firmament, a book which could lead anyone to the Psijic Sword. When Ahnissi heard of this, she banished Ffoulke to the Legions of the Dead, and threw the book to the mountains far in the west (the mountains west of Skunkworks). 20 years before Vehk was born, 2 men named Tarhiel and Itermeral found the Firmament on a quest, but left it there for fear of Ahnissi's wrath. But they charted the course. in the Journal of Tarhiel, Tarhiel wrote half of the directions, and in Itermeral's Notes, Itermeral wrote the other half. Then they hid the books at sperate places, but Tarhiel then added to his Journal where Itermeral's notes could be found. They wrote their books in the ancient language of Ta'Agra, and the Book of Ta'Agra is in Anthony's library... That leads us to the continuation of this quest for power, when Anthony, Alia, Mara, and Noval (CivGeneral) start the Quest for Power again..... Back to the present Anthony: Everyone ready? Mara: Yup. CG: I'm ready. Alia: Ready when you are. Anthony: Let's start then. the four start their journey to Gorina to search for the Journal of Tarhiel. Who knows what will happen on their quest? OOC: This is my attempt to start a pass along storyline. I think it is very interesting, and has a rich source of knowledge in it.
