"You don't actually think this is going to work, do you?" Anon scoffed at King Blackthorn's suggestion.

"Well if you don't think you have the ability to do it, I guess you can continue to be known as the second best mage of the realm..."

Anon slammed a hand down on the table, causing Dupre to give him a glare from his seat. "I still am afraid I don't understand...why are we not simply destroying the source of these?"

"Because we cannot without condemning untold numbers of lives. Anon and I have come to the conclusion that Minax used the shard of the gem of immortality she'd stolen to open up tears in the Ether to another world...a Sosaria conquered by brigands and outlaws. To destroy the connection might destroy one or both of the worlds. Instead...Anon came up with a plan that's somewhat similar to what Nystul once did..."

"It's completely different! We aren't destroying an entire way of life and the source of our strength!"

The King raised his hand and Anon reluctantly went quiet. "Alright. We can cast the spell, but we're going to have to be uninterrupted...and unfortunately, Minax and this...Shanty you told us of will be on the watch now. Anon is the only one of us who can cast it...and I'll need to assist him."

"Shanty's enchanted blade is's one of those ancient blades that we'd thought were all lost. I don't have anything that can stand up to it."

The King pulled on a bellpull and Heckles entered, with an object wrapped in cloth. "It took some time, but I was able to find an object in my collection that may be able to help you against him, Sir Dupre."

As Heckles approached, he unwrapped it and held the sheathed blade out to Sir Dupre, and he drew show a brilliantly gleaming black longsword, with magical runes engraved along it's length. The balance was impeccable, and it felt as if it had the perfect weight...He gave a small swing of it's blade, and saw the same motes of magical energy as Shanty's Sharkbite had cast. In a deft motion he sheathed it perfectly, and gave the King a nod.

"Then let us do this for the realm...and for Minax's defeat."

We are putting Publish 85 on Origin and Izumo today. The shards will be going down at approximately 2 pm EDT.

One point I would like to make clear is regarding the Vet reward - The Light house

Once the lighthouse is deeded it will unlink from any boat and owner it is linked to. When you replace the lighthouse you will have to relink it to keep any ships from decaying. It will NOT automatically relink once the light house is replaced.

Thank you and Enjoy!

His blade clashed against that of the renegade swordsman, each strike forcing him back pace after pace, never ceasing in his advance. As the swordsman caught one of Sir Dupre's strikes on his shield, Sir Dupre lashed out with his own shield and struck him hard in the face, feeling the mans nose break before the impact. Helmets are worn for a reason, novice... he thought to himself as he disengaged his blade, stamped on the man's foot, and ran him through. With a sudden jerking back of his sword he let him fall, staining the dusty sandstone vermilion beneath him. He could hear the crack and power of explosion potions being hurled at the lighthouse, but he heard shouts come up from his knights, even as a breathless squire ran to him.

"Sir Dupre, we need you! We've got a problem!"

The city had been a nicer place once. It had been busier, filled with bustling life and mages learning and earning their keep amidst masters and grandmasters. But that was many years ago, he reminded himself...and despite the ferocity of those remaining in these lands, so many had already moved on to calmer waters. He'd been warned against going at all by his Royal Guard, with them finally relenting when he agreed to take two with him as protection, but he told them as simply as he understood it himself; If he found who he was looking for and they were intractable, a regiment would likely not be enough.

The gates of wrought iron still stood, and though there were traces of rust, it was no worse off than the rest of the great city. As he passed through, more foreboding signs abounded...there were bodies amidst the streets, and he shook his head...most of them inhuman, monstrous things that should have been in the dungeons of the lands instead of the streets of a city steeped in history. Cracks of lightning and the pull of bowstring could be heard from various directions, but it was when the entire sky seemed to open up with a continuous peal of thundering roars that he knew where he wanted to go.
