All across the cities of Gielinor, came the shrill cries of the mad.

''Repent! Repent now to the true will of Saradomin! Repent ye sinner, ye damned!''

They were dressed like rather ragged monks, perhaps because they were. They were fighty. Their accents, indubitably foreign. And yet hard to pin.

Where did they come from? Why were they so violently driven? Where did the drivel spill from in their minds?

Did it matter to the Asgarnians? To the Misthalites? To the Kandarinians? No, of course not. What wisdom have the mad ever brought? Though, what madness has wisdom brought?

Darkness crawls, flags unfurl, and the creaking of ships fills the sea. And yet, the song echoes over the horizon.

''Sail away, set sail into the blue horizon!
Ride the waves, that guide our destiny!
Sail away, today we fight and there will be,
No mercy for those with no grave;
No grave but the sea!''

This plot is the next massive one in a series by... Well, me! While this plot references other plots, it's tangental at best to the rest.

For this, I'm trying my hand at some real cosmic horror. But also some gritty war stories.

I'm going to mix my strengths and see what comes out, basically.

Feel free to join us for the ride!

• Priests keep enterring major cities, preaching about the end being nigh. Yet, nothing seems to come of it, aside from the priests enterring fights with citizens and filling prisons. Were these ragged monks not all speaking the same accent, there would be speculation of internal religious insurrection.

I have a map drawn up of the location the bulk of the plot will take place in, though I won't post it until that location is discovered to be important ICly.

I had drifted o’er seas without ending,
Under sinister grey-clouded skies
That the many-fork’d lightning is rending,
That resound with hysterical cries;
With the moans of invisible daemons that out of the green waters rise.

Messenger of fear in sight
Dark deception kills the light

Hybrid children watch the sea
Pray for Father, roaming free

Fearless wretch insanity
He watches lurking beneath the sea
Great old one, forbidden site
He searches, hunter of the shadows is rising
Immortal in madness you dwell

When stormy weather comes around
It was made in heaven
When sunny skies break through behind the clouds
I wish it could last forever, yeah
Wish it could last forever, forever

Made in heaven!
I'm playing my role in history
Looking to find my goal
Taking in all this misery
But giving it all my soul!

Made in heaven, made in heaven!
It was all meant to be
Made in heaven, made in heaven
That's what everybody says
Wait and see, it was really meant to be
So plain to see
Yeah, everybody, everybody, everybody tells me so
Yes it was plain to see, yes it was meant to be!

I'm sailing away...
Set an open course for the Virgin Sea!
Cause I've got to be free!
Free to face the life,
that's ahead of me!

On board I'm the captain,
So climb aboard!
We'll search for tomorrow,
On every shore!
And I'll try, oh Lord I'll try,

To carry on!

I look to the sea...
Reflections in the waves spark my memory,
Some happy, some sad...
I think of childhood friends, and the dreams we had...

We lived happily forever, so the story goes,
But somehow we missed out on the pot of gold!
But we'll try best that we can, to carry on!

A gathering of angels appeared above my head!
They sang to me a song of hope, and this is what they said,
They said: Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me lads!
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me!
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me, baby!
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me!

Accepted. Roster updated with other people who expressed interest in DMs.

_______________

As the sun rose in Port Sarim, a new addition was added to the area. A musical troupe, playing... Horribly. For hours on end. Hours without end. A guard went to ask them to stop, but then somehow, they played a song that made some musical sense, leaving the guard with many more questions than answers.


Song of Sarnath

(To the tune of the Menaphite Folk Singer, Tale of Amascut/Het/Crondis )


They wandered far from sea of sand,
Those hungry snakes, in search of land.
Running to the grabbing hand,
Was this all to plan?

So they sailed, these Menaphites
To an island, after many nights,
A home to us free of frights,
So long we lit our lights!

Then they came from the east,
Slaves and servants far from beast,
They brought their moon to our sun,
And lit the night for everyone!

So we settled with the Arc,
We all had to play our part.
Mighty Tumekan soon blast apart,
When the skies bled from Ulthar!

The Kandar came into our lands,
Spread themselves upon beach sands.
Conquered us and wrapped in bands,
The metal bands, metal bands, metal bands.

So the next came to conquer,
Asgarnians with their horde,
Coming with spear and sword,
They set a King as lord!

And so the bloodshed was vast,
Many stood shocked and aghast.
The King’s days had come and passed,
May the next King last?

One day the crown did end.
Unto us a prophet sent,
The fabric of fate was rent,
Sinners should repent!


Oh, listener fill my beggar bowl,
Help us to achieve our goal,
Oh, Blood Mother spare my soul,
Make us whole, make us whole, make us whole!

With the pirate assault repelled, it has been made clear to the Asgarnians that the assaulting force were in fact, Privateers under the command of an Admiral Johan Gustafson, a military figure of the small, seafaring country Sarnath.

With the Sarnathians becoming more open, many of their beliefs have been uncovered.

There is a call to action among the assaulted Renderra and Asgarnians. All adventurers willing to hunt these glorified cultists will be rewarded generously.

And so the war begins...

The Shadows at Sea crawl as the sun sets. Reports of odd events come from the fishertowns outside Sarim.

THIS SUNDAY, the plot continues with a raid at sea. It's time to ambush these marines, and find a route to their island home. The rolwplay will take place around 5 in the afternoon.

Few rps without a forum update. Lets see

Sea Raid ended in success, the Admiral of the fleet challenging five of the captains to "single" combat.

The death of his lobster Crassian Queen left him feeling a rage that only close bloodlust would solve, and this Body magic using lich proved a tough opponent, even when outmatched 5 to 1.

Finally, his body was blasted with holy magic, phylactery removed, and then destroyed

_____

After winning the hearts of the slaves of Tsuki no machi, an attack on their citadel was imminent. The Renderra under Wakihisa Hanae led out of the gate, the Gu warrior taking no stops.

That is, until her finishing move, a tricky blood magic maneuver, had her collapsing to the floor. Her chest was burning, skin blistering. This was magic, though none any present had seen before.

As she was laid to rest, Jeo Sicarius looked for clues, finding plenty of black stone. He muttered "Xau ******* Tak" under his breath, leaving far more questions than answers.
