*Missive sent only to those who have expressed an interest in joining the SADOS or Brood guild Specials

We have become aware of a threat to the Gold and Ivory Dragons. The threat as we understand it is being orchestrated by a creature known as Sinsaniam.

The threat we believe is linked to an Exostance wide ritual of some kind. We believe this ritual has the power to significantly weaken both the Gold and Ivory Dragons or Empower the Bronze and Ebony Drakes.

Unfortunately, our own abilities are limited but we have informed Sirac a champion of Gold and Ivory Magics.

It is also our understanding that two new guilds are being set up to help defend the Dragons and also collate the growing number of sons and daughters of Sirac.

We are proposing a mission on 17th of next month to start working on a way to combat this threat and we will undoubtedly provide more information as and when it can be obtained.

Please meet us at the Gold Tower of Magery in Halgar at no later than the 10th hour. There is a small drinking tavern there for you to meet as is the normal course for mercenaries.

My thanks Tirama, it will be good to see you again, it's been too long.

So...I received this rather charming missive, the text of which follows. For those in doubt, I am being sarcastic, there is nothing at all charming or pleasant about the missive or its sender.

I have received some communications from my parents, and the threat is very real. It seems that if I do not engage, my parents are likely to suffer considerable harm, as would the people of Primus.

But if I do engage, then it is myself at risk. As in my very existence will be on the line, both in this life and upon the wheel of life, fail and I will be undone, nothing of me will remain.

As such, I have indeed decided to form two guilds, that reflect my foremost vows and ideals. One to protect my parents and spread their magic far and wide. One to protect the lands and the people, and to leave the world a better place than we found it. Should we fail in the endeavours ahead, then mayhaps these will serve as I have tried to.

And consider this a call for help. For the land, for my parents, and for myself. For I will be honest, as always, and say I would rather not be wiped from existence, especially not as a result of the designs of such a deranged individual!

I hope my family, my friends, my apprentices and my allies will aid me in preventing that from happening!

I look forward to meeting any who can answer this call,

May Harmony guide our thoughts, and Purpose our actions,

Sirac Drakeson

.......

"Sirac,

My name is Sinsaniam, I wanted to let you know that even though we have never met I know everything about you. You see the exostance is an extraordinary place. It is a place where belief defines reality and where people especially on Primus being the centre of it all it creates things and strengthen things through belief it changes the world you see. What is also true is that as Primus has held its position in the rotation of planes for so long that other planes have been left to rot and decay; to change and manifest new things.



You came to my attention some time ago, Sirac you see you have become a legend and people have started to believe in you as some kind of unkillable, unfathomable mercenary a force for good, for order for diplomacy. Some poor peons have started to believe that you are indestructible. Now here comes the good part. For every belief there is an opposite belief due to the rule of day and night when one side grows in power so must the other. This means that when people believe in the all-powerful force of good then there is as a direct result a belief that grows in an absolute evil. Where you have become a symbol for good, honesty, diplomacy I have grown in power to be your opposite force. As you prepare to spread your power and form alliances, I also spread my power and form my own alliances. Now my power is equal to yours and there are those that now believe I am indestructible and so I have become so. Now the truth is neither you or I is indestructible we are just simply tough to defeat, I believe that there is a way to change things to tip the scales one way or another and I believe that there is a world where only one of us survives. I have been granted vitae, unusual as it is. It is exceptionally rare for a non-mercenary to have vitae but it has happened for what purpose I do not know but I suspect it is to ensure that creatures like you have an opposite; something to defend against; a way for the balance to be maintained. Ahh but the world is a strange place and there is a way that that only one of us may survive. I have found its location and I will pursue it. It would mean your ultimate demise there will be no way for you to return Sirac I will wipe you and any memory of you and your deeds from all existence. Your children will be hunted down and destroyed.



Don’t misunderstand me I do not hate you or loathe you I simply choose to exist in hatred, chaos and dishonesty. I want lies, I want hatred, I want war. I will encourage destruction, I will raise vengeance, I will ensure nothing but insanity remains, you will under-estimate me at every turn. Your mother and father will despise you by the time I am done and then they shall forget you.



I expect that you will want to stop me, curtail my power and eventually bring me low but you will fail because despite your followers belief; you are flawed like the Nagrech crystal that forms the throne, it is tough but it is imperfect it is flawed and enough energy in that flaw can cause it to crack, those cracks widen and eventually the toughest substance can splinter, break and fall apart. I will do this too you. I will kill and destroy those around you. I will watch your faith crumble as I stand on bodies of your fallen friends. I will laugh and mock you to your face as your watch impotently at the carnage around you and you will know that you have failed. You will know that you cannot succeed. I will crush all those around until you are alone, vulnerable and weak. Your cracks will show, the flaws I see will be penetrated and I will rip you apart. I will ensure that nothing remains.



I am tireless, I am unending and I am your destruction. I have power different but equal to your own. I am growing. I am Sinsaniam, I am Chaos, I am Destruction, I am Rage, I am Insanity Incarnate. I am your death as yet unwritten. You are going to be but a footnote in history. "

And here follows the responses to my divinations. I think this will be all I can find out before we gather. Please be aware some of the details I have...redacted/removed, as they are personal and not to be widely shared. But the following is relevant to many of us...

Is this threat genuine, and something I should engage with?

Yes, without your involvement you parent dragons of Gold and Ivory will be under direct threat.

What are the specifics of this threat, what does this creature pursue. And how can I best minimise the harm this being seeks to cause.

The creature has calculated an exostance wide ritual, Sinsaniam has bound three elves to his soul, Bronze, Ebony and xxxx, the xxxx has been ritually twinned with your own xxxx xxx soul. The Bronze and Ebony drakes have been chosen for they are the opposite to you. 21 places of power have been set up and the ritual completes in 1 year and 1 day. If the ritual is left to complete itself then the Gold and Ivory dragons will be significantly harmed. The xxxx xxx within you is the key to it all a focus for the ritual if you will. Your best bet is to remove / de-power or re-focus at least 11 of the rituals.

How can I best protect my friends and family from this creatures designs. Is there a genuine threat to those I care for.

The threat is against you, the gold and ivory dragons and Primus as a whole. Sinsaniam is a creature of hatred, chaos and evil. Once his scheme has been fulfilled he will seek out further chaos and destruction he has a particular hatred of the users of Gold and Ivory Magics. He will hunt them all.

I think I’d like to go and make that man explode..

Not know if I can make the 17th but I think it’ll be a lot of trips out to kill him...

Anyway, I care about the dragons so I’m in!

Er, hello! I kept getting dreams that my erstwhile father needed my help. I laughed the first two times as he is this hugely powerful mercenary. I thought I might have had too many pre-bedtime breakfasts that had affected my dreams.
Anyhoo, I have set myself to life as a mercenary. No idea if I have this vitae stuff people talk about. Soon find out I expect. It might help me lose some weight.
Not sure how I can help but maybe someone can train me up. My likes are sitting and thinking about the flow of nature and sneaking up to watch birds!
I might see if my brother in law Armitage Shanks has any advice.
Anyone got any help for me I would appreciate.
Sorry, I’ll shut up now

Greetings. I had a good friend once called Fidget. Hopefully you will enjoy as...exciting and interesting a life as he did.

What manner of help do you seek? I will do all I can to help you through my arts when we gather, but if there is anything specific you need of a more material nature, please just let me know.

I do have a shield that is quite potent at protecting those who have links to my father. The shield bestows the knowledge of how to use it for those who could not normally use a shield. You are welcome to use it for the day if that would help?

Thanks fath, er, I mean Sirac. No idea what help actually. A shield is nice. Do you think I will need one? Is it wooden? I do prefer to work with wood.
I have been told by Tommy ‘Pipeweed’ Tompkins, the old Druid, that if I play with the pixie girls in the woods that they give you some mushrooms that help you attain your true self. What is the worst that could happen?
I aim to do some intensive, something to get me ready to meet you and help grandfather.

Hey, I’m back and can think of no better way to start my next chapter. Sirac is fab so we will have to do what we can to save you and also the Golden Drake-gon is definitely the best and we can’t have anyone messing with that!

Took me a while to read everything you had written... next time can you sum up with a max of 500 characters?
