Paxia In Peril!
Location: Battleon » Robina's Shop » Truphma Saga » 8: Paxia in Peril! » 1: Paxia in Peril!
«Scene: Xov's Throne Room. She's addressing a Truphma Outpost Master.»
Xov Arakue: Tell me about this island to the east.
Truphma: It is home to what these people call clans. Groups of people allied under one of the elements of the world.
Xov Arakue: Ah, elements. Such great power lies in the taming of that which builds the world. If one can harness the essence of the world, one can take it without much loss.
Truphma: Do you think you can harness this world's essence? It would be glorious.
Xov Arakue: Let me tell you a story, my Truphma Commander. There was a planet, large, strong, independent minded.
Xov Arakue: Yet, war was always on the horizon. When I arrived, they were crying out for respite and leadership, even though they didn't realize it.
Xov Arakue: I had come, you see, to fulfill those prayers they sent up to the unfeeling deities this universe protects.
Xov Arakue: I set about spreading our message and found the holy temples dedicated to their elemental spirits. And I took each one.
Xov Arakue: Complacent, lazy, unfeeling spirits that they were, they did exactly what I wanted them to. They proved that our way was best when they failed their worshippers.
Xov Arakue: Yes, the people rebelled and resisted us, but when one is used to brokenness and pain, it is hard to imagine peace and tranquility.
Xov Arakue: The people of that planet could not imagine what I had was best, but they learned. As I took their elemental spirits and imprisoned them, the world began to change to our way of thinking.
Xov Arakue: Many died, but as each elemental succumbed, so did the people.
Xov Arakue: Many lost their lives attempting to save those pathetic representatives of the powers the universe put into place. We had to destroy much to accomplish perfection.
Truphma: You were successful, though?
Xov Arakue: I have you as a commander, do I not?
«The scene fades to black. When it fades in, Xov has arrived in Paxia with her Truphma.»
Xov Arakue: This... place was once a truly powerful island, full of people dedicated to their clan and their leader. They are no longer the proud, brave people of yesteryear.
Xov Arakue: They are weak. They are inept. They have lost all ability to carry on the pride they once had. It plays into our hands, my people.
Xov Arakue: Pride is a result of imagination. A false and terrible result of imagination. Many want this place to burn.
Xov Arakue: There are those who wish to have Paxia destroyed, leveled and turned to rubble.
Xov Arakue: I say we take it for ourselves, harness the power for our mission and use Paxia as it should have been all along. A machine of change and influence!
Truphma Army: *Roars*
«Xov Arakue raises her arm slightly, pointing at Paxia, and commanding her troops:»
Xov Arakue: Storm them, my people. Storm every palace, every fortress, every place of clan gathering. Go!
«More Truphma can be seen raiding Paxia as the scene fades to black... Elsewhere, you are in a forest when someone cries out your name!»
ONeo: «You»! Please, «You», where are you!?
«You»: What? Huh? Is someone calling me?
«ONeo, a Nocturu clan member enters the scene.»
ONeo: «You», thank Noctros I have found you. It's terrible! It's horrible! You have to come! You have to help!
«You»: Slow down... Um, who are you?
ONeo: I am ONeo, of clan Nocturu. The Truphma... Xov Arakue... they've stormed Paxia. They've STORMED PAXIA!
ONeo: I know Noctros encourages every member to fight alone. We are not weak, but even he will resort to asking for help when he knows he faces an enemy beyond his power.
ONeo: He... they will all be overrun...
«You»: Gather all available fighters. Arm everyone you can! We will need all the help we can get.
«You»: And, make sure those that were not at their clan homes declare their clan affiliation before fighting. We must take Paxia back from Xov!
To be continued...
