The Fall of Osthavn

Rebel forces striking from the sea laid claim to Osthavn. With Ostland's meager navy drawn off and the Everwatch away in Ostdur, the poorly equipped rebel army seized the town swiftly and efficiently. Many of Osthavn's guards turned and sided with the rebels as they advanced, the remaining loyalists were routed in short order. Cheers erupted from the peasantry, who came out of doors en masse to shout their praises to the dirty and ragged troops who marched through the streets.

The parading was short lived however, as Ostdur's forces mobilized to retake the town from the outmatched rebellion. Weapons stores and military materials were quickly rounded up. In the midst of the frantic looting, a man stepped forward to address his people. Agnar Magnus had returned. His speech was brief, and nearly drowned out by the sounds of desperate battle still raging around him, but his message was clear. Hope has returned, and the true Jarl is back to fight for his throne and his people.

As quickly as the rebellion had come to Osthavn, it left, with Everwatch knights storming in to brutally retake their city. Dozens of people, farmers, bakers, smiths, are executed on the spot. Many, many more are quickly rounded up and taken to Ostdur for "interrogation". Osthavn begins to swell up with Everwatch, Axe Bathrie has made it clear. Treason will not be taken lightly.

A fire genasi was caught in the battle and had to leave all his belongings and his dream of opening up a shop in osthavn. Quickly he saught refuge in one of the houses and attempted to stay away from the conflict, trying to see who would win the struggle.
He briefly overheard Agnar magnus speech, or parts of it as ge was forced to leap head over heel as the everwatch returned en masse.

He now 'subtly' asks around who Agnar magnus was? Where did he come from?

"Really, now. Really? Huh. And all in a single day too... No, no, it'll be quite alright. Somehow, I always knew it would come to this."

The boat creaks wearily as it approaches the shore. A few gulls cry overhead as a warm gust lurches the vessel forward.

"Woah now. This will be close enough. Here are your wages, good sir."

The passenger fades from sight with a seemingly innocuous phrase about "ashes into the wind." His disappearance is followed by a splash over the side of the cutter. A thin wake begins to trace its way just north of the embattled Osthavn.

The passenger that landed upon Osthavn's shore makes a trip to the War Knight stronghold in Rethgard. A fter a few moments he is seen leaving, massaging his brow and a frustrated look across his face.

He casually peruses the wilderness for some time.

"Shards...What did Malatril get himself into..."

If it hadnt been for Glendill's and Aly'dra's presence and conversation, Oaru would probably be quite dead. His idea to get some of his crops and pass as a merchant, as usual when in Osthavn to avoid being burned on a stake, ended poorly than he expected. Unable to use anything but some lies to escape the 2 Banites that cornered him in the Burgomaster's office, he is pretty sure all his cargo would be feeding the jeering guards outside, and not the begging crowd of peasants, while his body would be thrown in the waters, a ditch, or even something worse. Bloody business... Bloody business indeed.

His visits to the Grove in Amia Forest and the Seven Stars Academy in Kohlingen proved fruitless, no one able to give him any information about the strange occurances on the barren, rocky, but apparently thirsty ground. And any further investigation in the lands proper now involves risking being cornered by Banite lies and sweet talk.

Very worried, very pissed off, but very aware there is little he can do without his superiors' permission, and considerable help, he resigns himself to tending to his weak garden, where even his attempts to make the weather less taxing on the area are met with constant failure. But at least he knows the land here is resentful, but doesnt crave any of his blood.

In her quarter's at Rethgaard, the young wood elf sergeant contemplates many peices of information and consults several documents over the space of a few hours, occassionally sighing out of frustration or indecisive paths to take. Hearing the disturbing news of some of the dark occurances taking place in Ostland, she would be in a rut on what to believe or not as her thoughts argued and debated both sides of the coin.

"The days come down to this.. Our Order in service to a ruler who does not care for his people.. A rebellion whose true intentions remain hidden from us..

.. How did we fall from our mantle? How have our duties and code been tarnished over this forced agreement.."


A few hours later, she departs the keep to head firstly for her home in Winya Ravana, then to Kohlingen.

The country side north of Osthavn erupts briefly into open war as several Rebel encampments are quickly and brutally raided by Everwatch knights. With so many officers killed in the initial raids, Rebel scouts and skirmish lines fold completely. A full scale rout commences as any remaining Rebel soldiers flee from their hiding places and make a desperate run for the shore line, only to find their means of escape squaring off with elements of Ostland's navy.

The fields of Ostland run red with rebel blood.

In the following days, soldiers and Everwatch collect the bodies and round up prisoners, sending them to Ostdur for questioning. One of the survivors is a battered and bruised, but none the less alive Burgomaster, thought dead since the Rebel victory at Osthavn weeks earlier.

Suddenly a shipment would approach the fine port of Osthavn, in Ostland. A few banites would set foot and would prepare to unload their cargo: a large amount of meat enough to feed the large city of Cordor for almost one month. And the smell would be flawless. Mutton, leg pork, ham, dry meat, sausages in larger amount and in different types, ham, chicken, bison beef and steak. The population of Osthavn never saw such amount of food before and the smell would certainly kill them. Same would go to barrels of purified water in large scale. Malus would help Bastion on delivering food while he manages to persuade them.

*Bastion would step forward from the banites in a militant stance he would address the people within hearing distance*

"People of Ostland, the Church of Bane realizes the struggles of this rebellion *he would motion to the food* and will offer food to the people and soldiers of this land. A rebellion *he would say in a commanding and persuading voice* causes hardships that should not be endured, Though rest assured the Everwatch is handling the matter with full support of the Church of Bane" *the banites would begin to unload the crates and such*

*across ostland to each everknight camp to every soldier in service of the jarl a band of war knights in parade armor march in perfect sync as drums beat behind them and a golem with a massive armored crate marches behind them. Encampment after encampment begins to receive armor and weapons with the seal of tempus upon them. At each camp signatures are gathered and once verified by their camps leaders arms are dispensed. At that time Sergeant Bralor offers prays to each soldier in the name of tempus.*

"May these armors and arms help you seek just battles, not just any battles."

After a brief and ill-advised attempt to arrest Osthavn's guard force, Everwatch Chaptermaster Sir Ruthven Lokar finds himself under arrest instead. Keenly remembering the brutality of the Everwatch when they reclaimed the town, the guard repay it in kind upon Sir Lokar and his men.

A wounded and exasperated Burgomaster frantically makes arrangements for the city's defense, but it seems retaliation is not forthcoming. If The Bathrie Court in Ostdur know of the situation, they seem not to care.

After the recent bombardment of Rethgaard by the navy of Ostland, along with assisting the Osthavn militia pushing back the Everwatch from Osthavn, the War Knights hold a quiet congregation within their walls to honour the fallen dead who perished during the bombardment of their keep along with assessing the damage done. For the next few days, knights are seen coming and going from Rethgaard by use of portal or their longboat Wave Dancer, along with brief patrols between the township and their fortress, staying well clear of Ostdur at this time. Clearly tensions are high amongst the servants of the war gods.

*once more the polished red and gold force of war knights leaves their keep on patrol, they end at osthavn offloading a massive shipment of iron armor, spears, long swords, and battle axes. Oddly there are silver spears, swords, and axes accompanying this shipment. After dropping off the supplies and securing burgomaster bors signature, the war knights begin patroling the area.

They handing out small food items they were carrying to children offering the flasks of ale and mead they had to the men and women as they begin looking around for means to defend the city. They could be oddly seen helping with the mundane day to day tasks as well as they look around lifting boxes, offering aid in shoveling and chopping wood. Once completed with their full look around the area they leave quietly*

For some reason a black figure appears here and there on Ostland, people happen to call him "the Bard". Whenever he returns to the Triumvir he seems to spend hours in the libary, obviously trying to find something.

With talk of coming war never far from the peasant's lips, Osthavn is a tense place. More and more troops, fresh from Ostdur arrive daily to fortify the port city, all freshly equipped with WarKnight steel.

Whatever is coming, it will be bloody.

A young Silver Dragon Knight is often seen going from Witlun to Barak, Winya, Kohlingen and all over meeting with many people as things near to something large. He hurries to gather medical supplies, food, water and gathered a few priests to give aid for the coming storm. Meeting with many officials and working with them this man works but tired he grows from travel. Wearing him down the stress of dealing with people that could be summed up to impulsive and selfish. Perhaps this is directed at certain group of individuals but nothing is mentioned for he remains focused at the task at hand. Working every lead he can and making sure to remain ever vigilant and a beacon of hope to those who know him in these dark times.

_____________________________________________

Wiltun's First Knight stood where had found himself often these past few weeks, pacing and contemplating, well into the early hours of the morning, in front of the large atlas in Wiltun's Map Room. It was easy enough to lose himself in his thoughts and in time, missing the normal inclination to sleep or wake was nothing new to the Knight or his family. (Thank the gods that the disconnect had been manageable.) Once again, this night, he found his mind and thoughts drawn towards the Ruathym Isles and the Jarldom of Ostland. Soon in coming, the perfect timing for the culminating events to finally unfold. Long, arduous, painful but necessary events. Any day now.

He stopped in his pace, turning to face the map with an outstretched hand. From the perspective of his crimson eyes, he saw the hand reaching out to rest over the Ostland Jarldom. A green and iron vambrace positioning itself flat over the tainted and corrupt land. A land of cannibals and oppression, where peasants were dragged away into cells to be bled and killed for the sake of some spreading infection and malice. Any day now, it would come to an end.

He kept his hand over the map, focusing the center of his palm on the seat of Ostdur, Bathrie's capital. He moved his hand East from the seat to Rethgaard, the War Knight Keep. Figurines of ships and soldiers around its point on the map. His hand slid again, this time South, along the mountain pass, the treacherous swamps and coast land, down to the port of Osthavn. Here he had placed a number of military figurines, representing numbers, forces, ships, supplies. It was here that he closed his hand, slowly balling his gauntlet until it formed a fist. A fist, that from his perspective, covered and crushed the image of the Jalrdom's port from sight. He let his fist linger there, the focus of his thoughts for the next few hours until the first call of the morning's shift change came from the Keep.


"It will be any day now." "Yes, Knight. It will be any day now."

On Caraigh the Jarldom's newest Knight can be seen drilling groups of somewhat poorly equipped men over and over, working on instilling them with an understanding and basic skill in unit fighting and mutually supporting formations and stances that would allow them to augment their individual fighting abilities by working as a unit. Though not cruel and fair as he can be, he pushes the men hard.

There is a distinct lack of presence from the Fireblooded warrior and merchant Hashim Hoios both on the mainland and abroad. There are no sightings, neither on caraigh nor Ostland, of the merchant... Whatever transpired that lead to the absence of the prince of fire seems to have had a permanent effect?

News of an attack on fortress Rethgaard slowly leaks out of militarized Ostland. While the Soldiers and guards remain tight lipped on the matter, whatever attacked the fortress was powerful indeed, nearly leveling it's western wall and causing heavy damage. Within a short time Admiral Daltry and his entourage can be seen directing repair crews at a frantic pace.

Following a violent and bloody battle on the mountain passes near Ostdur, Axe Bathrie begins mobilizing Ostdur's reserve forces, peasants and farmers soon find themselves conscripted en masse. The troops already in position in Osthavn and Rethgaard stand on high alert, and Admiral Daltry's fleet begins preparations to sortie out of Rethgaard's harbor.

Whatever happens, Ostland will not be humbled without a fight.

Occupied Rethgaard becomes a flurry of activity, despite the blockade and the sluggish repair work underway, the Everwatch begin to mobilize. A short time later they march for Ostdur, following close behind is a large supply chain, food, armor, blacksmiths, siege weapons, all plodding slowly along in the wake of the marching soldiers.

Wherever they intend to go, they plan on a long trip.

A certain ranger has taken to intensely studying maps of a particular area. Occasionally, a look of frustration comes across her face, but soon enough she moves on to poring over little details on the map such as streams and rivers, roads and passes, mountains and bogs. She takes the map with her everywhere she goes, sometimes studying it as she walks - glancing around now and then as if verifying the terrain around her matches up with that on the map. When not practicing her terrain association skills thusly, she makes a habit of honing her more stealthy skills by moving as quietly as possible through different types of terrain, or conducting archery endurance training by "aiming" at a target with her bow and keeping the bowstring taut for minutes at a time.

All in all, she seems to be gearing up for something, as well.

Several figures were seen throughout the evening in a gathering around and near the Idol of the Black Hand, one of these individuals would have been recognized as Jezabel Asherah who could be seen in a heated debate with a darkly clad man accompanied by two heavily armored men. Later that night, it she was clearly seen being dragged through Osthavn, her body broken and shattered, to be thrown at the base of the Idol where she was being commanded to repent and to submit. She remained defiant and fixated her attention upon the Idol, genuflecting in prayer even as she was to be brutally beaten and then executed. Three men, one darkly clad the other two heavily armored, stood behind her either observing or delivering the punishment. One would speak as a thundering storm began forming centered around the settlement and striking the Idol with lightning repeatedly. Being partially coherent and semi conscious despite the brutal onslaught she endured, she remained in prayer though silently as she was being face driven into the mud with a shattered jaw. With thundering storm and lightening strikes becoming fierce and ruthless, the three men departed for the Everwatch Tower, one of the armored men having taken her.

Sometime later that night the three men emerged from the the Everwatch Tower and soon departed. A short time afterwards, Jezabel Asherah could be seen crawling, and dragging herself from the Tower, still broken and shattered, though driven and denying any help that may have been offered. She was determined to survive through sheer force of will and inner strength.

Over the next few days, Jezabel Asherah could be observed attending to the needs and necessities of the people, the guard, and those within the knighthood who were willing. She had fully recovered, possessing renewed and greater sense of determination. She appeared to have continued to her attendance of the Idol and with those who were willing to listen and to participate, instructing and drilling the guard in training, and performing hard work and labor assisting the people in general.

She has also taken to patrolling the roads and wilderness, hunting down and slaying the various monstrous creatures and beasts of the 'mere and the Birdmen Tribes. She has been traversing the hills, mountains and the open fields maintaining a vigilance, especially upon the harsh road leading to Ostdur, where she has also spent her evenings walking among the fortress and keep. While there she often appraises what appear to be ruined structures and observing the people, though she rarely speaks or interacts with anyone. She has appeared to have taken an interest in the courtyard, seemingly contemplating throughout each night.

The presence of the Thayan man calling himself Khaldun would become more scarce than usual. He would make occasional appearances, but they would not be often, and he would not linger too long, as if not feeling comfortable staying there.

Within the past few days, Jezabel Asherah could be observed attending to the necessities of the people and guardsmen of Osthavn while in the company of a few. One in particular would have been seen speaking with her within or just outside the Everwatch Tower, an imposing armored figure of a man. The Knights posted within the tower would have heard them discussing the establishment of trade, concerning their connections and their contacts. The armored figure informed her he had completed the task she had given him and she informed him that he may begin preparing to provide the supplies needed for Osthavn's people and the guard. After he departed, she would have personally delivered a message to the Office of the Burgonmaster before returning to her duties.

During this period of time, the few other individuals seen in her company have been observed them deep in discussion near or before the Idol. She would speak of the faith and tenants of the Dark Lord, and offering her counsel in which seemed to be well received. She would have also been observed attending to Osthavn with little or nothing to do concerning the Everwatch Knights and limiting her attendance of the Tower. The knights within would have heard her in discussion that she would no longer be involved of the affairs of the Everwatch or the Enforcement Branch, as it was in the hands of Sir Bastion and his Lieutenants.

Dread Sister Jezabel Asherah, High Inquistor of the Black Hand after having been seen speaking at length with the Burgonmaster of Osthavn would have been observed entering the Everwatch Tower of Osthavn and informing the Knights that she has assumed the position and role of command, until declared otherwise by a higher power or authority. She decrees that until such a time stating otherwise, all inquiries and orders shall then be passed before her and brought to her attention.

Jezabel Asherah would be observed by the knights issuing orders to the Enforcement Branch of the Everwatch. She assigns the knights and the soldiers to patrols in order to secure the roads and to remain vigilant against the beasts, monstrous creatures, and "humanoids" that prey along the coastline, within the woodlands, and within the mountains surrounding the crossroads and upon the north road. They are to remain mobile and set campsites while companies are to circulate between each region as they are secured and established. These men will also rotate from their patrols into work shifts in salvaging materials from the many ship wrecks off the coastline and cultivating natural resources of materials, especially lumber. The companies, once completing their rotation, will recirculate through the standing armed forces at Osthavn for their standard duties and tasks.

A portal is seen opening in Osthavn proper. Exiting from the portal is a red haired woman with a plumed wide brimmed hat and bow in hand. She seems to concentrate on keeping the portal open, chanting softly, as half a dozen mule drawn wagons come in behind her. The wagons are loaded down with crates, sacks and barrels of differing sizes and shapes. She approaches the guards outside the Burgonmaster's office and announces the arrival of food stores and various daily goods supplies.

"Broken Dreams Tradin, deliverin ordered goods an food ta be distributed ta da folks o' Osthavn, as per request from Dread Sistah, Jezabel Asherah, High Inquisitor o' da Black Altar. Inform da Burgonmastah it 'as arrived."

With that said, she hands over the reigns to the men that will be seeing to storing and distributing the goods, and heads back into the portal, leaving behind the mules for later use.

Burgomaster Bors and several of his thugish bodyguards gratefully accept the delivery and start seeing to its distribution post haste. The influx of food and supplies however meager noticeably improves the general morale of the famished Ostlanders.

Within the past few days, Jezabel Asherah could be observed attending to the necessities of the people, guardsmen, and Everwatch Knights of Osthavn while in the company of a few. Two in particular would have been seen speaking with her within or just outside the Everwatch Tower, an imposing armored figure of a man and an attractive young woman garbed in vestments of the faith. The Knights posted within the tower would have heard them discussing the establishment of trade, concerning their connections and their contacts. The armored figure informed her he had completed the previous task she had given him and she informed him that he may begin preparing to provide the additional supplies needed for Osthavn's people, the guard and the armed forces. After he departed, she would turn her attention to the young woman instructing her what her duties would entail and what she would concern herself with.

During this period of time, the few other individuals seen in her company, two women both of which would be garbed in armour and priestly vestments, would have been observed being deep in ceremony and ritual near the alter before the Idol. She would speak of the faith and tenants and teachings of the Dark Lord, and offering her aid and counsel in which seemed to be well received. She would have also been observed attending to Osthavn's Everwatch Knights and increasing her attendance of the Tower and the affairs of the Enforcement Branch. The knights within would have heard her in discussion concerning the current state of affairs, conditions of knights, and issuing the command to execute her previous standing orders.

Dread Sister Jezabel Asherah, High Inquistor of the Black Hand enters the Everwatch Tower of Osthavn and informs the Knights that she has allowed Sir Bastion Ny'ight to resume his duties within the Enforcement Branch as he retains his rank and title, though makes it perfectly clear that she retains the position and role of command, until declared otherwise by a higher power or authority. Until such a time, all inquiries and orders may be given and granted by the Kapten, however they shall then be passed before her and brought to her attention and approval.

She would be observed redoubling her efforts in her duties with the people and armed forces of Ostland. In addition with her current work, she continues aiding both the people and the armed forces with their struggles and making arrangements for their provisions, in attendance of the Idol and holding services. She would be seen actively encouraging and spreading the tenants among followers and assisting the faithful who have been absent, the newly initiated, and issuing her orders to those she has assigned to maintain their duties within Osthavn.
