Previous Episodes: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=seeker+questCharacter Sheets: https://imgur.com/a/AUQv7Inventory + Spellbook: https://pastebin.com/s811YMmLYour companions have moved into position.The ice walls are placed.Now all you can do is wait.Finally the Lich reveals himself. He steps into the plaza, with only two bodyguards at his side.In its hand it clutches a staff with a gem sitting on top. That must be his Philosopher's Stone.The Lich's skull starts jerking around rapidly, surveying various locations on the battlefield. Looking at Alina on her balcony, the ice walls, yourself and the stone knight you hid behind one of the ice walls.Its rapid observations end, and it casts Greater Haste on itself.

>>4259573Your Immunity to Weapons[Hacking] on Alina and your Immunity to Weapons[Hacking] on Leonardo from the last fight are still in effect.Both of them impose a hefty penalty on your Abjuration while they're active.Successfully casting Dispel may not be possible while maintaining both.>Ditch Alina's she's safe from melee up there>Ditch Leonardo's, he's a horse>Ditch both, You need ALL your spellcasting power>Keep them both like a chad

>>4259588>Ditch Alina's she's safe from melee up thereuh oh
Oh shit, he's right in front of you.Archies behind you though, supposedly his amulet can absorb a spell if the Lich tries something.roll 1d100 for Dispel magic60 or lower is neededonly first roll counts
>>4259750(You dismissed Alina's Immunity to Weapons)
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>4259750
You dispel the Lich's Greater Haste.He raises his Philosopher's stone and points a bony finger at your Gold Warhammer.Your hammer feels... a lot lighter.
>>4259775>Lose the hammer and jump that fool, grab his staff
The skeleton guards start to close in.Alina doesn't seem to have a clear shot of the enemies.The archduke blasts the Lich with his gun for 30 damage. The damage seems a lot less impactful than usual. This Skeleton is abnormally tough.>Retreat through the choke>Attack with magic>Attack the stone with a dagger>Stop Time>write in
>>4259781>Attack with magicCan we set the lich on fire by throwing an oil flask at it and then hitting it with a magic missile?
>>4259796I guess this is worth a try.They're breaking in through the south and north by the way
You dump an oil flask on the Lich, fireball works so this should too.The Lich releases the golden glow from his stone. Undulating energy flows into his oil dripping skull turning it into the same golden steel your hammer used to be made of.The grunts come in and start slashing and slamming the Archduke and yourself.You take 7 damage
You cast Magic Missile, the energy bolt snaps forward hitting the Lich in the chest for 13 damage. The oil on the Lich sets alight! Not that he seems to care, he continues to cast as if he didn't even notice. The Lich burns for 6 damage.He once again raises his Philosopher's Stone and wisps of metallic particles flow from your Thorned Armour into the stone. Your armour has turned into cloth!Without armour to protect you, two skeletons Flurry you for 5+6 and 3+7 damage the Thorned "Armour" reflects some of the damage onto the attackers.Archie takes another shot at the Lich for 19 damage.You are in combatYou have 52/80 hpQueue up to 4 actions>Attack 80%>Flurry 70%>Power Attack 70%>Jab 95%>Defend>Called Shot>Counter Attack>Spell>Item>write in
>>4261458>Fighting retreat to the chokepoint
You and the Duke reverse back through the choke between the ice walls.The skeletons hold formation and do not pursue you.The Lich raises his hands and his frenzied fingers cast a spell. Stone to Flesh.A glowing gray beam shoots out but bends into the light of the Arch Duke's amulet. The spell is captured...
Lich begins casting again.Lich takes 5 damage from flames.You are in combatYou have 52/80 hp>spam magic missiles>ask Shawel to pull the Lich in (will require her to drop her Ice Walls)>retreat further back>write in
>>4261631>spam magic missilesWe still have no platform to get our dragon's tooth in, sheeeit
>>4261631>>spam magic missilesThe fire raises for the Lich.
>>4261657The fountain is surrounded by dirt beds that were decorative gardens long ago.Christof is standing on top of one here>>4261454>>4261458
>>4261787Lets also put a tooth down when there's time, then
>>4261805>Lets also put a tooth down when there's time, thenDefinitely.>>4261691>>4261657Spamming magic missile is only effective if the lich's magic keeps getting absorbed.But even then, His reinforcements are breaking through and Shawel can't stop all of them.Time is on *his* side here.And once they spot Ulric, his hiding is pointless. We need to smash that stone.That said, I don't have much of a better idea. Unless Magic Missile can target that stone.I wish Christof had put on that bra.Next time anybody is in range, Called Shot [Philosopher's Stone]
He's not going to come attack you. So you start to pepper him with magic missiles! The first two bolts sail straight into his golden skull for 6 and 8 damage. He's become a lot tougher.
He releases the steel glow from his stone and it flows into his skull, his neck and the remaining parts of his skull that were made of a natural bone turn into steel. The Lich burns for 3 damage.
The archduke unleashes the Flesh to Stone spell captured in his amulet onto the Lich, but he resists its effects. He follows up with a blast from his gun, the bullet dents the Lich's head for 15 damage.
Shawel unleashes a double scorching ray at the Lich from each palm, doing 8 and 9 damage. No attempt is made to evade them, he just tanks them like the terminator.
The Lich whirls his staff, this time targeting the Archduke. His Gold Armour turns into cloth, the essence sails into the Philosopher's stone, which once again takes on a golden glow. Archduke: "Thieving scum!" The flames continue to burn scorching the Lich for 4 damage.
You move over to a dirt bed and sow your last Dragon's tooth. The dirt bulges and cracks as a skeletal arm emerges from the earth. A Spartoi emerges from the ground and assumes a fighting stance. Behind it you see the southern ice wall shatter. Two undead walk into view. The Archduke half-whispers to you "Hey, I still got that Acid Fog scroll left, if you can immobolise him I'll drop the acid cloud on him"You are in combatYou have 52/80 hpQueue up to 4 actions>Attack 80%>Flurry 70%>Power Attack 70%>Jab 95%>Defend>Called Shot>Counter Attack>Spell>Item>attack the two skeletons>retreat to Alina's killzone>move out of the Lich's LOS>write in
>>4263636>Spartoi, engage hostiles to the south-west>Continue dropping ordnance on the Lich
Inb4 the lich just pulls some "I heal all my health back" in one turn shit
You order the Spartoi to hold off the enemies to the south. It marches off to battle.You return to your position and continue blasting the Lich, he uses his Stone on himself once again, with golden essence flowing into the bones within his armour. His metal body is now complete. No longer holding his ground he starts to advance. A heavy metal clank sounds with every step.Also he's still on fire (3 damage).
Rolled 1 (1d3)The Lich advances very slowly.Archduke: "Watchout, his Petrify spell has a short range! (5 tiles)"You Shawel and the Archduke blast him but he has become VERY resilient to damage.He takes a total of 18 damage.Shawel: "He is invulnerable!"Archduke: "He's not, overwhelming force will still destroy him!"The Lich points his finger at:1 - You2 - Shawel3 - Archduke
From his fingertip springs a stony gray ray of Flesh to Stone. It collides with your chest with a small physical impact.Roll 1d10 to save vs. petrificationyou must roll equal or lower than your CON scorefirst roll counts
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>4265655I can't believe Christof is fucking dead
You've been turned to stone!Not dead, but suspended in a petrified state.One of your team mates will have to use the Scroll of Break Enchantment on you.

>>4267066>I might be going too far with such compelx instructionsit's cool, direct your parties actions as a playerit will be as if they're acting by their own initiative or following order from the Archduke
Combat has always been a less active part of the quest but damn it's slow rn, ah wellThe Lich gets to the end of the icy corridor and flicks his arm towards his enemy hiding around the corner and casts Flesh to Stone! Only to discover the "enemy" is just a small figurine of a knight. He takes 3 damage from burning.
The skeletons finally break through the ice wall and advance. Shawel quickly drops Ulric's ice wall.
Ulric Sneak Attacks the Philosopher's Stone, splitting it in half! Each half shatters into pieces and all the magical power trapped within erupts outwards in a wave. The area is now bathed with concentrated magic (+30 to spellcasting attempts)
Rolled 4 (1d10)Shawel places a new ice wall, blocking the Lich in. Ulric uses the Scroll of Break Enchantment on You, breaking you free from the stone. After a second of disorientation your mind goes into focused state, ready for battle. The Archduke fires his gun at the Lich for 10 damage, and starts to reload. Lich takes 2 burning damage.The Lich casts Flesh to Stone on Archduke, with a roll of 6 or higher he will be turned to stone!You are in combatYou have 52/80 hpQueue up to 4 actions>Attack 80%>Flurry 70%>Power Attack 70%>Jab 95%>Defend>Called Shot>Counter Attack>Spell>Item>write in

>"Bit off more than you could chew, rattle-bones?"It speaks in a husky whisper, "Must protect Aflor."
>>4265646Oh no he's hot.

>>4269613Well, yeah. He's been on fire for several turns now.
>>4271270How will we reach him, doofus
Athens moves up and unleashes his inner dragon fire. He and the three skeleton warriors nearby him are engulfed in flames for 50 damage, leaving behind only piles of blackened bones.
>>4271953(You can attack diagonally)You equip your old Iron Warhammer.>"Hear that? It's going haywire. Put it out of its misery."Ulric: "Wait he can talk? Is this undead a person?">"It's just a remnant, it has no soul!"
Ulric, the Archduke and Shawel all give it a beatdown for a total of 35 damage (including burning damage). It's body starts convulsing, like it's about to shatter into smithereens. It collapses onto one knee and points out its finger for one last petrification ray.1 - you2 - Ulric3 - Archduke4 - Shawel5 - Accidentally hits Skeleton
Rolled 3 (1d5)>>4273536
Rolled 5 (1d10)The beam zaps him in the chest.He needs a 5 or lower to resist!
>>4273543fuck that was close
>>4273545>Break his head off with one swing of the hammer
(that's it fn, more updates tomorrow)
>>4273548to be honest him being killed would have solved some problems down the road
"A spirit rises! Destroy it Christof!"You discard your existing Abjurations and cast Dismissal, with the Philosopher Stone's abundant energy still floating around the area you easily cast the spell and banish the invisible spirit.>"I got him!">You gain 5000 XP>You now have 104285
The remaining two skeletons on the battlefield freeze. Stand motionless for a moment and then they.. change. No longer holding their weapons with the grasp of a swordsman, but loosely gripping the handles and dangling their blades at odd angles. No longer standing upright in a combat ready stance but hunched and twisted. They start shuffling with the gait of an undead towards the closest living thing. You and Ulric defeat them easily, their combat skills have vanished.
"Ha! you see that!? It worked! They're brainless! There's no one left to direct their hive mind. It will be DAYS before any of the Liches reappear!" the archduke triumphantly exclaims. He gets out a scroll and casts a simple Flare spell, launching a dazzling light into the air. "heh, We've finally done it. Nothing stands between us and the Djinn."(Choose one)>"What do you plan to do now?">"What do you intend to wish for?">"Are there any more obstacles between us and the Djinn?">"What was the Flare for?">write in
>>4275068>"A glorious victory, Your Grace. All the realms will celebrate your achievements here. All that remains now is to claim the spoils."
>>4275068>"What do you intend to wish for?"
>>4275068>write-inContemplate what the lich-boy said. What's he defending Aflor from? Pretty ominous.Love the quest! Thanks for running, desu.
>>4275068>"Nothing stands between us and the Djinn.">"Are there any more obstacles between us and the Djinn?"Pic related is Archie's face when.But no.Seriously this is good:>>4275079>>4275970>"A glorious victory, Your Grace. All the realms will celebrate your achievements here. All that remains now is to claim the spoils. What do you intend to wish for, Your Grace?"Gotta ask for the deets whilst being keenly respectful. Fortunately, he's not paranoid about us.But if he saw how we handled the last wish granted, he might know enough to specifically not mention anything we might object to.That's why it's good to hit him up now while he's emotional, happy, and feeling safe. He might be honest.>>4274879Archie might want to wish for something that Christof would be morally obligated to stop, or he could try to take all the wishes.I doubt Archie would do anything that *he* would consider untoward or dishonorable. He's arrogant and greedy for power, but not compared to most nobles. I'm clocking in at a 65% trust level.To me, there's only an outside chance that he'll convince himself that stopping us from wishing is in everyone's best interest.>>4276363>Contemplate what the lich-boy said. What's he defending Aflor from? Pretty ominous.THIS.Worth pondering.I can't imagine all these undead came from a wish that went as planned. I expect double sided dragon dildos in our future.
>>4276537Whatever yu say
>>4274879>>4276537>Archie might want to wish for something that Christof would be morally obligated to stop, or he could try to take all the wishes.Basically this, we need 1 wish to free the genie1 to make him fuck off from earthand 1 to help our kingdomthere is no room for the dukes wish at all and now that the undead are gone we have bargaining chips
>>4276764You want to steal all the wishes away from the Duke? That's not going to fly at allAnd what "bargaining chips" are you talking about.
>>4276764>we need 1 wish to free the genieWhat? Why?>1 to make him fuck off from earthWhat? Why?>and 1 to help our kingdomTotally.We don't even know this genie yet and you're already packing up his Lincoln Logs to ship him off to university.There is no guarantee that *this* Wish Granter will be anything like the last one.Don't stride in there thinking that we can whip off wishes like we're ordering off the drive-thru menu, fuck an archduke in the ass, and skip away as an hero.We need:1.To undo all the damage done to our homeland by the curse.2. Not get fucked by the Arch-Duke even if that means letting him wish himself into becoming an immortal King or David Hasselhoff or something. This is a big chewy variable here.3. Prevent the Wish Granter from fucking everyone in the ass either by being an evil genie or by falling into the wrong hands.Plan A is not: Christof acts like a dishonorable, arrogant ass, steals all the wishes for himself, and uses two-thirds of them to make sure the genie is free and nobody else ever gets any wishes.That's, like, Plan D, tops.>>4276825>what "bargaining chips" are you talking about.Also this.Is that just a euphemism for regicide?
>>4275068Dude, don't forget to scoop up tiny stone-bro!
>Dude, don't forget to scoop up tiny stone-bro!Got him. Although this "guardian" (as Ayanos put it) hasn't done much you've grown fond of this little figurine.
>Contemplate what the lich-boy said. What's he defending Aflor from? Pretty ominous.The true ramifications of intelligent undead are actually a subject of debate, with various theories and explanations. But you are extremely adamant in your belief: undead, summons and automatons are all non-sapient and non-persons. They might emulate a thinking mind but it's nothing more than a fake. In the case of this "Lich" you have two theories. 1: residue from the original living person's personality and memories surfaced when you taunted him. Before he became an undead he was a powerful transmuter (possibly a soldier) with strong inclinations to defend his homeland.Or 2: "Defend Aflor" was an imprinted directive; part of some awry wish. Its false and malfunctioning mind simply spouted its objectives.No matter the case, in your culture destroying the undead body is the highest act of respect and dignity to the person who once was. Rest in peace fallen one.
>"A glorious victory, Your Grace. All the realms will celebrate your achievements here. All that remains now is to claim the spoils. What do you intend to wish for, Your Grace?"Archie: "We've got to question the Djinn first. It would be bad to rush in and make a naive wish. I will determine the potential risks and what the creature is capable of before making any final decisions. But don't worry, my highest priority is still restoring Uthain's climate. After that I have potential ideas for extra wishes. It might be wise to make those wishes before I take the Prison Cube to Aramoor. It would be bad if someone like Azahl tried to steal the remaining wishes while it's being transported.">Don't you consider it immoral to keep the Djinn as a slave?>What if the Djinn demands freedom in exchange for wishes?>You plan to take the Djinn back home?>You intend to take all the wishes for yourself?>What kind of ideas did you have in mind for the second and third wish?>I'm not sure the "Prison Cube" does much, the Djinn in Malgrave smashed a wall with his bare hand BEFORE I freed him>write in
>>4277129This is where we betray him and wish for a harem of Djinn girls.
>>4277129>You plan to take the Djinn back home?>I'm not sure the "Prison Cube" does much, the Djinn in Malgrave smashed a wall with his bare hand BEFORE I freed him
>>4277129>What if the Djinn demands freedom in exchange for wishes?Don't ask too many questions, it is not our place to interrogate him
>>4277023>>4276825The bargaining chips was that the dukes army was busy, now they are not. The duke could send us away if he wanted too now since our actual use to him has ended. We are 100% putting the faith of what happens next into the hands of the dukes reliability and good nature. I don't think christof would back out on a deal now and assassinate the arch duke or anything like that. He is much to honorable. I was just saying that if he had died it would have been better. But I also don't think christof would be fine with passing the torch to someone else and crossing his fingers they do the right thing. Why don't know what we are dealing with but the surrounding land is filled with undead and the last wish granter we met was a caged kinslayer. >What? Why?x2>There is no guarantee that *this* Wish Granter will be anything like the last one.ok you're right haha, what was I thinking. Forget everything thats happened up to this point and everything we learned form the first wish granter. Also forget all the decisions we made before about not letting some ultra magic being run free on our planet in exchange for some precipitation. THIS wish granter could be TOTALLY different, so lets just hold our dicks and walk around mindlessly until it shows itself. Why bother planning for the future in anyway what so ever. I mean we could potentially be in a coma and this is all a dream brooo, haha just wait and see you just DONT KNOW 100% how things will go so lets just let what ever happens happen haha. TL;DR: Don't be a fucking retard, and be mindful of the future.
>>4278215You sound like a fag. TL;DR
>>4278215>GOOD IDEA:Not being a fucking retard and being mindful of the future.>BAD IDEA:Assuming we know how the wishes will work.Assuming we need to free the genie.Assuming we need to use a wish to make him fuck off from the earth.Assuming there is no room for the dukes wish.Assuming that the more powerful Wish Granter, guarded by a much more powerful and intelligent army of undead, will be exactly the same as the only Wish Granter Christof has ever encountered, who was a unique individual with his own backstory and everything.Assuming your assumptions are facts and stating them as if they were.>RETARDED IDEAGetting caught using uncertain assumptions as fact and then double-downing on your assumptions while angrily accusing others of being willfully ignorant.Dude.We might need to free him to get an untainted wish, but maybe not.He might not consent to fuck off from earth.We might not free him at all.We might let Archie take his wish and see what happens to him.We might just be after his lucky charms.The only thing we know, for certain, is that Archie just said he plans to make our wish the first wish and then take the prison cube and Wish Granter to Aramoor.I don't like that as Plan A.
Taking the information given by Ayanos The Murderer at face value you can make these assumptions:The other Djinn may not necessarily be evil, but you know that they are criminals imprisoned by their own kind, plucked from their dimensional prisons by humans using the "prison cubes" which are apparently Djinn technology.The criminal Djinn will have been branded with a title of shame like "the murderer" and will be forced to introduce themselves with that name when they meet you.The Djinn will be forced to truthfully answer questions relating to its crime(s). (They will also have to be truthful about the exact effect of their Wishes or they wont work)
>"You plan to take the Djinn back home?""I do, best case scenario I secure the Wishgranter and use its power to ensure Aflor's prosperity, and perhaps even its autonomy for the lasting future.">"What if that's not possible? I'm not sure the "Prison Cube" does much, the Djinn in Malgrave smashed a wall with his bare hand BEFORE I freed him.""My ancestors were able to subjugate him, the possibilty is proven! The Djinn may be capable violent rebellion but it seems to me their preffered weapon of choice is the passage of time.">"And what if the Djinn demands freedom in exchange for wishes?""Then I must refuse him. No doubt his plan is to await a seeker desperate enough to give him freedom in exchange for two wishes."It seems like his will is set. You start to sense agitation from him, so you just nod thoughtfully without asking any further questions.After Alina climbs down to ground level and rejoins you, the walk to the palace begins. Some straggler skeletons wander into your path but prove to be weak opponents. Soon the palace stands before you.Archduke: "The chamber of the Wishgranter lies behind the throne room." He takes a long pause. Gazing at the structure. "The time has come."Sorry, haven't finished the update. Will post the rest tomorrow!
You step through the vast and dusty halls of the palace. You feel a great sense of emptyness walking the stony halls. Hearing only the sounds of your footsteps and the distant shuffling of undead from the passing doorways. Eventually you reach a room containing somesort of magical machine.A rock sculpture with many small vertical cylinders extruding from its top, slowly rotating in a circle. Its mid section a thick pillar lined with magic runes.Alina: "What is this thing?"Shawel: "A magical noise generator? Castle Malgrave had a machine that disrupted telepathy. This is probably the same sort of thing."Archduke: "Exactly right, it stops telepathic control of the undead. Even when the Liches are alive they're never able to control the undead inside the palace because of this. Though none of my expeditions were able to exploit it. At this point we should just leave it alone. Come, the throne room is just ahead."
Two heavy bronze doors lie ajar, through them lies a large red carpet in perfect condition and cleanliness, flanked by many skeletal remains, armed and armoured. The carpet leads to a dais, upon which rests a crowned skeleton lying in a heap. There is no throne on the dais.The archduke steps into the throne room. You follow looking side to side, paranoid in case the old bones suddenly spring to life.Archduke: "Farland."He steps up to the dais. "Shawel, what do you make of this crown?"Shawel: "It's a powerful magic item, it carries energies similar to your amulet and the stone knight. I am afraid my magic sense isn't refined enough to determine anything else.""I see."He looks down at the crown thoughtfully.>Advise him to ignore it for now>Encourage him to take it>Let him decide on his own>write in
>Let him decide on his own
>>4282635we are a wizard too, do a lore check
>>4282920You've never heard of a magical crown artifact in Aflor before. From that time you studied Aflor's history in the Oakheart library you guess that this crown was created by a wish during the brief Aflor civil war just before the undead army appeared. It's probably directly related to the undead army.
You decide not to intervene. You don't want to risk even the slightest chance of souring things with his grace at the last minute. Archduke Lockridge takes the ground, studies it for a few seconds turning it to different angles, then puts it in his inventory.Someone's coming. Several of the Duke's men jog into the room and stand tall, albeit out of breath. At the front are the captains Oakheart and Blackyard.Blackyard: "Your Grace."Archie: "Report captain."Blackyard: "The base is packing up and preparing to move into the palace, the siege machines and the rest of the men are on their way."Archie: "Excellent work. And now for my prize."He turns to the stone door behind the dais. And steps up to it.Archie: "Come Christof. Enter the chamber of the Wish Granter at my side."The two captains whisper to one another nervously.Oakheart: "Your Grace, we have some concerns."He doesn't turn around, keeping his eyes fixed on the door with his arms folded. "...and what are those concerns. Oakheart."Blackyard: "We think it would be safer if you entered the chamber alone."Oakheart: "Why afford adventurers the highest level of trust when it isn't absolutely necessary.">speak up>let things play out>gesture to your companions not to intervene>write in
>"I am not a mere adventurer. I have come here on behalf of the King of Uthain."
Actually that was a bad idea. Stay silent instead>gesture to your companions not to intervene
>>4284393>gesture to your companions not to interveneThis.Defending ourselves against his men to Archie, who already has given us his vote of confidence is unnecessary and a bad look.I can totally see Ulric chiming in to do just that too, Alina and Shawel might too depending on how they read the room.His men questioning him may be an insult to his authority or encouraged depending on their dynamic. Either way, it's not your place to intervene.It was always the plan to go in together, so if Archie starts to flip on us, then we can question it. As long as it's just his men questioning, let them bark. Their concerns are understandable because they didn't (to my knowledge) personally spy on Christof being noble and good as much as possible.I don't think that Christof would take offense.Archie has been on top of things so far, I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop.If he's conning us, he's doing a good job of it and the shit will hit the fan.
>>4284471>>"I am not a mere adventurer. I have come here on behalf of the King of Uthain.">>4284579>Actually that was a bad idea.Good point though, if we were going to bicker.We're not just seeking adventure.Alina was lured into it by us, so she kinda is an adventurer.Ulric likes swords.Shawel is... I honestly have forgotten Shawel's original goals.
>>4284393You are no common adventurer, you are basically a diplomat and your kings representative in a united front.
>>4284886True.But Archie already knows this and they weren't addressing us.
>>4284783support, I am sure Archie won't let our boy down.
You gesture to your allies not to intervene. Sometimes inaction is the most prudent option...
>Helped retake Clarcton>Defeated Azahl and his wizards>Constantly addressing with respect for nobility>Cautious use of Ayanos' wishes>Didn't oppose Archduke when he was rebuking Ulric>BTS diplomacy with Uthain>Good Alignment>Follower of a trustworthy god>High Charisma>Allowed Ayanos The Murderer to go free and took his box>Trying to give orders to the Archduke during combat>Fear & Paranoia lurking at the back of Archie's mind
Oakheart: "A conflict of interest can occur even between the most righteous men."Blackyard: "We mean no disrespect, but we are anxious for you to take unnecessary risks for this matter of supreme importance."Archduke: "...It is my wish. That Christof, Alina, Ulric and Shawel share this victory at my side. I ask for your trust in my decision."The two captains seem a little taken aback, but both give a polite bow.Blackyard: "Then it is my wish too, sire."Oakheart: "Yeah.."The Archduke presses his hand to the stone door and a mechanism in the wall starts to rumble. With a high pitched whine and heavy rumble of machinery the stone door rises. Archduke Lockridge steps inside.(That's it for this thread, I want to take a bit of a break before we enter the endgame. Thanks for playing. I'll post on the qtg when there's a new thread.)
