    >"A mysterious stranger once sold me a magical set of armor. His price was my own flesh and blood. I graciously accepted, for I would sacrifice anything for king and country."

    >"I still remember my own horrid screams as I donned the armor, blood pooling at my feet as my flesh was consumed, and my soul bound."

    You are Sir Hadrian Blackhand, all that remains of a shattered kingdom and her people. Your soul bound to a living suit of armor, and entombed in the fallen capital of your kingdom. Recently however, you have regained your freedom, and set out for find the cause of the apparent cataclysm that rocked the world while you were imprisoned.

    You traveled east, only to find a blasted landscape seared by a massive fire elemental, and the sick cult that worshiped him. Dealing with that, you follwed the coast and found the city of Grandal, but the city is not without its problems, as you are soon drawn into a murder mystery that evolved into some cult worship. The city revealed some shocking discoveries, which lead to an even greater discovery that sent you into a brief bout of relif and guilt ridden hysteria as you killed the wavelord and a great deal of their zealots.

    "Dies Irae", the fimilar looking words carved into the stone walkway you had dismissed as a fragmented sentance. It seems this city was built some time after whatever magical event ripped the world apart, and was build underground as a reminder of what befell the capitol. You supposed that the language written on the walls was lost in the passing of time, otherwise the kingdom wouldn't have fallen into myth and childrens tales. Engraved in every surface of this "City of Lights" was the history of your nation and her allies.

    You had not had much time to linger in the church, as you realized the cultists that fleed would rouse the guards. Donning your "disguise" once again, you make your way out of the church and down into the city. Through bits and pieces you read along the way, you found that the entire continant was torn asunder and sank, the three mighty races scattered and broken, however the majority fled across the now drastically expanded ocean to the unexplored eastern shores, where they built this city as a last bastion against the fiendish archmage, awaiting to fight him to the bitter end. But he never came.

    Reaching the bottom of the long stairway, you look around at the last known home of your people. This place is almost busy as the surface side, but none the less the people go about their work. If these people were desendents of your people, why were they so....small? Probably some magical change brought about by the calamity, or interbreading with the dwarves. Then you wondered if the Cinderfolk were what became of the Elves, after all, they were more deeply affected by the workings of the world than the other two races.

    Why the FUCK does moot even use cloudflare anyway? Even if it could backup ALL of 4chan from a certain state reliably without ever causing downtimes, having such a backup is COMPLETELY FUCKING USELESS. The whole fucking point of 4chan is seeing new posts every 5 seconds at least and being able to respond instantly.

    Yes I am FUCKING MAD.

    After a moment of taking in the sights, you begin to try and find your way back up to the surface, as you begin to fear for your companion. It is probably well known by now that a silent knight in black accompanied by a Cinderfolk girl arrived in the city, and very shortly afterwards strange things started happening. Though you are certain she would call if her person was endangered, you feel a lingering feeling of anxiety you can't quite put your finger on. Perhaps because of the amount of old emotions that have blown through you these past few weeks.

    None the less, things had to be taken care of before you could leave the city. You were in sight of the passage to the surface, which seemed to have its guards on rather high alert, higher than you had seen them anyways since being here.

    They let you pass without any trouble, besides a few nervous stares. Making your way back to the inn, you noticed a giant riderless horse making its way over to you. It seems Mercy didn't appreciate standing next to a sewer pipe for so long.

    Riding him back, you have to leave him tied off again as you make your way down the narrow street to the inn. Stepping in, the crowded tavern is silenced, and that is soon replaced with whispers.

    Ignoring the whispers, you proceed through the tavern up the stairs to your room. You have had practice maneuvering through the tight confines, so it goes smother than normal.

    Entering you the room, you unsurprisingly find it empty. She had probably gone out to look around while you were gone.

    While we wait, we should go down to the Tavern and listen for any stories/rumors. Particularly about us.
    >> Blackknight !EGl50Sr6go 01/15/12(Sun)23:30 No.17556231
    Sitting down in your place by the window, you reach out to the other part of you that is clasped around the girls neck.


    After a moment of silence, and Vengeance getting noticeably uneasy, you get a response.

    >"Ehhh...Hello? Sir Hadrian? I haven't quite got the hang of how to work this yet. When you called just now I almost shouted out loud. I just went out to the market to look around some more, I'm heading back now though."

    Nodding, you command Vengeance to go out and meet her, but take care not to be seen. With that matter taken care of, you think of how strange it is that not once have you been questioned by the guards. Surly you are the only person in the city that matches the "Giant in black armor" description.

    Though, it most of your public appearances, you are cloaked in the elements in a nightmarish fashion. Getting up, you proceed back down stairs to the tavern, to see if you might find anything out.

    You aren't greeted with the silence as before, but you notice that not one person looks in your direction. Taking a seat in the "corner", you listen.

    There is the usual talk, but some more hushed voices speak of a blazing phantom appearing in the guard post a night ago, burning all the records then disappearing through an otherworldly portal that froze the room.

    Another conversation, some dock workers going by their speech talked of how he witnessed a black rider run down a robed man who fled the scene of one of the mysterious murders. This is caused several people to glance over to you then quickly go back to their conversation. Speaking of how the two vanished right off the docks, and that the horse was seen later trotting off without a rider.

    Yet not one mention of the Water cult. It must not be known yet.

    Gesturing to the Barkeep, he quickly grasp your meaning this time, and brings you over a drink, but unlike before, he speaks while giving it to you. "Some dangerous happenings in the city lately, but above..." He paused squinting his eyes "...And below. You should watch yourself and that companion of yours, it would tear me apart to see a sweet girl like her get hurt."

    Returning back to his bar, you notice there was a piece of paper slipped under the pint. You take it in your hand, and taking care not to be noticed, read it.

    >"Some strange robed men were looking for a Black knight wreathed in storm and fire earlier. Soon after some guards came by."

    Troubling news indeed.

    Or maybe even a sect of people who know of our Kingdom, who know of the true origins of the city underground.

    From what you can tell, the Archmage blew apart the world trying to gain Godlike powers. Some tales herald him as the "Champion of the Gods", and others label him the "Unspeakable evil that tore the world asunder".

    The middle ground is that the people of Alshoder (Your continent) rose to stop him, and lost. Badly.
