BlackAces -> Morningstar Set (1/5/2012 23:19:38)

The Morningstar Clan!


*Monster Tier list located in second post.

Travel Map > Morningstar Set! (New mastercraft set quest)

Castle Wolvania lies deep within Darkovia, a centuries-old structure which has always been home to the Wolvan family. Throughout the generations, the Wolvans controlled a vast area of Darkovia forest, and were feared and respected for protecting this territory, and the serfs within it, using a pack of highly trained and domesticated werewolves.

«Scene: Castle Wolvania. A large moon is behind it.»

But as the kingdoms of vampires and werewolves grew and became more organized, and their hostilities increased, the Wolvan family eventually lost much of their wealth and land holdings. Most of the family left Darkovia for brighter lands, but one branch of the family tree remained. Ultimately, the castle was inhabited by only a single member: Ordred Wolven.

«Scene: Within the Castle. Ordred raises a fist by a fire.»

Ordred despised the vampire and werewolf clans, and spent every waking hour seeking ways to combat them, hoping one day to reclaim the lands of his forefathers. Only one power that Ordred discovered would be able to reliably work against both vampires and werewolves, as well as any other creatures common in Darkovia.

«Scene zooms in on Ordred as he turns green and green lightning bolts shoot out of his face. The Scene turns white.»

And so Ordred studied alchemy, shapeshifting, and various fighting arts for many years, until at last he had transformed himself into a monster-- to combat monsters. He had become MEDUSO...

«Scene shows Castle Wolvania and zooms out. New Scene: «You» in a different part of the Forest.»

«You»: Hmmm... This part of Darkovia seems to be rather lacking in monsters. Even normal wildlife...

«Xymon Beaumont, labeled "???," enters»

«You»: !!!
???: You need to go, now, before it's too late!!
«You»: What are you talking about? I don't run away from anything. I'm a brave champion of Lore!
«You»: ...............
«You»: What exactly would I be running away from?

«Scene zooms in on Xymon.»

Xymon: I am Xymon Beaumont, patriarch of the Morningstar clan, and I have, after days of valiant effort, lured the monster Meduso from the confines of his castle!
Xymon: He knows every corner of that castle, but I know this forest better than almost anyone! Out HERE I have a chance to defeat him!

«Scene zooms out.»

«You»: I've heard of Meduso. But I thought he only had a problem with the monsters of Darkovia...
Xymon: That was how it started. But over time, his own transformation has taken away more and more of his humanity. Lately he has taken up a hobby--
Xymon: -- turning villagers and others who wander into or even near his territory into STONE with his petrifying gaze, and adding them to a collection of statues in his castle.
«You»: Wow.
Xymon: If I defeat Meduso, all of his stone victims will be revived, and I will be a hero! Now, please, get out of here before you give away my posi--

«A blast from off-Scene turns Xymon to stone.»

«You»: There's nothing like a visual aid to make something clear...
«You»: Hmf. It looks like it's up to me to get into Meduso's castle, defeat him, and rescue his petrified victims now.
«You»: I wonder who ELSE he has in his garden of statues--?

«Scene shows Meduso in his castle. Elizabeth, Donovan, Aquella, Cenara, Rhubarb, Dewlok, and Edward stand behind him, Petrified.»

  • Enter Meduso's Castle and Quest for the Morningstar Set!
  • Flee!

    «Scene: The lower levels of the castle.»

    «You»: So sneaking in through the underground level wasn't very hard at all. Meduso must be very confident. That's going to be his downfall!

      Full Heal


    «The Eye Spy enters.»

    «You»: What on Lore is THAT?!
    ???: *gurble slurble*

    «The Eye Spy leaves.»

    «You»: Great. So Meduso has some kind of little spy critter floating around in here, too. It's not going to help him one bit, though!

    Meduso: And who might YOU be, intruder?? One of those blasted Morningstar Clan warriors?

    «You»: Hmmm... Nothing's happening. According to Xymon, the statues were supposed to return to life upon Meduso's demise.
    «You»: Now what am I going to do? Well, I suppose we could relocate these statues back to where they belong. I'm going to miss talking to them any more, though...

    Captain Rhubarb: Aye. From now on I'm never going to take being alive for granite.

    «Xymon enters.»

    «You»: Xymon! Glad to see that you were revived, too.
    Xymon: YOU did this?!
    «You»: I know, right?
    Xymon: Amazing! I hereby offer you an honorary membership in the Morningstar Clan!
    «You»: Do I get some kind of badge or anything?
    Xymon: Uh... no... but being in the Morningstar Clan is... cool.
    «You»: Cool? Why, then of course I accept!
    Xymon: Would anyone like to help me take Meduso back to the clan meeting hall?

    «The seven all slide off-Scene.»

    Xymon: Would any brand new honorary member of the Morningstar Clan like to help me take Meduso back to the clan meeting hall?
    «You»: *facepalm*

    The Morningstar Clan!


    Today's Event > Morningstar Set! (New mastercraft set quest)

    Castle Wolvania lies deep within Darkovia, a centuries-old structure which has always been home to the Wolvan family. Throughout the generations, the Wolvans controlled a vast area of Darkovia forest, and were feared and respected for protecting this territory, and the serfs within it, using a pack of highly trained and domesticated werewolves.

    «Scene: Castle Wolvania. A large moon is behind it.»

Most of the family left Darkovia for brighter lands, but one branch of the family tree remained. Ultimately, the castle was inhabited by only a single member: Ordred Wolven.

    Ordred despised the vampire and werewolf clans, and spent every waking hour seeking ways to combat them, hoping one day to reclaim the lands of his forefathers. Only one power that Ordred discovered would be able to reliably work against both vampires and werewolves, as well as any other creatures common in Darkovia.

    «You»: You're back!!!
    Aquella: I feel so-- stiff! Wh-- where ARE we?
    «You»: You were all turned to stone by Meduso's petrifying gaze. I raided his castle and saved all of you!
    Dewlok: I was wondering why I feel like I have rocks in my head...
    Captain Rhubarb: Aye. From now on I'm never going to take being alive for granite.

    «Xymon enters.»

    «You»: Xymon! Glad to see that you were revived, too.
    Xymon: YOU did this?!
    «You»: I know, right?
    Xymon: Amazing! I hereby offer you an honorary membership in the Morningstar Clan!
    «You»: Do I get some kind of badge or anything?
    Xymon: Uh... no... but being in the Morningstar Clan is... cool.
    «You»: Cool? Why, then of course I accept!
    Xymon: Would anyone like to help me take Meduso back to the clan meeting hall?

    «The seven all slide off-Scene.»

    Xymon: Would any brand new honorary member of the Morningstar Clan like to help me take Meduso back to the clan meeting hall?
    «You»: *facepalm*
