The drumming of a march. The horn of an advance. These were foreign, to Eudoxia. Not once had she been a commander. Always the scout. Always the moral support. Even as Geirdriful, a Valkyrie, she was no commander.

But today fire burned within the Icyene's heart. A deep fire, once an ember, now an inferno. Vengeance called her. For thousands of years, her target lay out of reach. But now, she could be found.

And her husband avenged.

Her fiery spirit had a poor effect on the world, however. As she ignited with anger, so too did war boil to the surface. Only one blinded by vain love could be left so oblivious to what she was about to do.

Hello everyone! Welcome to the next big plot hosted by the Asgarnia Hub, open to the public.

This plot does take place in hub canon. If there are any conflicts with your own, please either look past them or do not join up.

This plot also isn't exclusively NPC canon either. In actuality it is going to attempt to stay between the two as much as possible, so players from either canon may participate.

The plot is meant to focus on a war between long-standing, bitter rivals Eudoxia "Spears" the Icyene, and Vengra the Shadowbrand, a Demon Assassin of Zamorak. However, it is foolish to suggest a plot would occur in this situation, without it affecting the people of Asgarnia, the central battleground for this conflict. As a result, at least 30% of the sessions will focus on the civilians.

There's a few rules to follow, as well.

°• 1 •°
You must be in good standing with Asgarnia (ie: Not kicked for behaviour) in order to participate in this plot.

°• 2 •°
Political and/or Religious discussion outside of approved areas will be heavily scrutinized. It gets out of hand quickly, especially in a community as diverse as ours.

°• 3 •°
The Gamemaster has final say on anything odd/iffy concerning the plot or characters involved. DMs are open for purpose of discretion.

°• 4 •°
Character Death is possible, though optional similar to World Events of the past. If your character would die, you can retcon it to a serious injury that would remove the character from the fighting the rest of the plot. I'd prefer if these wounds were lasting, however.

`°•.
Eudoxia the Spear-Thrower
.•°´


An Icyene of ages long past, she served as a scout of Saradomin, one of his Prodromoi. As a result many folk tales now lost to time were written of her exploits, a cold analogy of her own forlorn nature.

Able to serve with Saradomin's Hetairoi, the Noble Icyene Knights who captured New Domina, Eudoxia refused. She preferred her spells, and this made her more fit to scout, than to fly in formation with others of her social standing.

Following the death of her lover, Belen, she stopped serving Saradomin's armies for a period to grieve, for her fallen homeland and lost love. During this time she went to Rellekka, alongside her two sisters, becoming a founder of the 'Valkyrie' trio who would be the foundation of ''Clan Spears.''

With Saradomin's return, and the knowledge of her husband's killer roaming, Eudoxia has become enraged. A deep call for justice for her husband has driven her to initiate the first strike on her foe, the Fury's Agent known as Vengra.

Her forces include willing Saradominists, notably including some White Knights, and even a few Icyene she has befriended.

`°•.
Deacon Vengra, the Shadowbrand
.•°´


A Demoness born from the infernal flame just a century before Zamorak's rebellion, Vengra's early childhood was a flash from slavery to freedom. She admires Zamorak in the highest, and with her two sisters, Vanissa and Veroua, fought for the God throughout the God Wars.

When an apprentice to Galethorn Arenson was rebelling from Zamorak's army, Vengra and her sisters were sent to eliminate the threat. They failed.

Vengra evaded capture, but only barely, before finishing her task. Her sisters were sent to the Aren prison of La Fosse.

Vengra continued serving her God, through her general, Lerepiel Shadowbrand. Until her Infernal superior was missing. Bound to him, Vengra searched. When Lerepiel was slain, Vengra began work as a freelance assassin.

Until the Mage War. A war Eudoxia helped trigger, caused a prison break within La Fosse. Vengra's sisters were free.

The trio were reunited, and with this, Vengra became confident and more public. Eudoxia noticed.

Now, the Icyene seeks Vengra's end, for a death in war. All is fair in war. She did as she was ordered, surely this Zamorakian isn't responsible for this rage?

Not that it matters now. War is coming. And Vengra is prepared.

Her personal guard includes some black armoured Knights of her personal tower guard, the Koszmar Crime Syndicate with their Werewolves, and favours she has pulled from old contacts and volunteers alike to ensure her survival.

War is brutal. Wartime affects everyone from the highest echelons of leadership, to the lowest gutters of its cities.

Civilians are often caught in the warzones. And even those outside these zones must struggle with famine as food is relegated to armies. Disease, as soldiers from foreign lands come home with strange air in their lungs.

This war is no exception. Within Psalm of Swords, I intend to have half of the roleplays focus on actual fighting, and half focus on what the fighting has caused for the people.

Perhaps, however, some are in neither army, but are not civilians either? Perhaps some war has drawn out the worst in people, bringing scavengers? Or perhaps the Godless, Armadyleans, and Druids feel they need to offer protection, even though protection brings more trouble?

I intend to have the plotline focus on the Saradominist / Zamorakian conflict. But if a side group wants a roleplay or two on the side, who am I to object? Perhaps, while some of these groups want the war to end... Perhaps some wish to draw it out.

- Civilians

- Merchants (War Profiteers or Otherwise)

- Clergy

- Rogue Elements (Godless / Guthixians / Armadyleans)

HEY EVERYONE.

First RP for this is tonight at 5pm EST.

Meet at the Clan Camp.

Eudoxia has decided it is unwise to move straight to Vengra's fortress, and that it will be far easier without the risk of enemies at her back. So a campaign begins toward the Dark Wizard's tower, to eliminate the threats within, on a crusade to secure the Crownlands.

All applications accepted, will take some time getting to them though.

As the Saradominists march North, the woods seem to be fighting, and fighting back hard. The Werewolf was not wrong, nature itself seemed to be hostile. If it isn't Giants terrorizing the flanks, it's the Ravens, those carrion birds, flocking to the camp in anticipation of a feast.

Rumour spread it was a Druidic curse on the area. Others thought it had something to do with Vorago.

One soldier was found strangled to death by vines growing from the ground in his sleep.

Another scout came back, horrified to his core. He babbled endlessly of ghosts, on mounts, cackling and riding in the distance.

That's not to say the Saradominists are alone in the attacks. In fact, the Zamorakians coming to Vengra's aid pulled their forces from the forest for similar reasons. The cursed ground would be hard to traverse, but this made it a natural defence.

Given the bottleneck this forms between Edgeville and the Kinshra Fortress, the Zamorakians have strong enforcement ahead of the Saradominists.

As a result, the Saradominists called on help from the Paladins of Ardougne, keeping their fingers crossed the King would permit them the leave to join a crusade.

RP will be happening both days this weekend. Apologies the last RP wasn't posted on the thread, issues with timing made it last minute.

Saturday's RP will be a more casual RP based in Falador, a simple bar night with the war's strain showing itself. It will take place at 6pm ESTin the Rising Sun Inn.

Sunday's RP will be a battle properly between the Saradominist and Zamorakian forces. It will take place just North of the Body altar at 4pm EST.

If people are interested in strategy meetings for either side, please let me know! I can do those at nights after 10, or on the same day as the other RPs earlier in the day (schedule permitting).

RPs for this weekend will be Saturday and Sunday again. Times are still in the air depending on my schedule, though I will not deny wanting to wrap up the plot before February hits.

Especially since February is hosting a Bonus XP Weekend. And Valentine's day. And I think Midterms for college students? (Correct me on that if I'm wrong.)
