Myron


Formerly the twin cities of Eemyron and Wemyron the two became united as one shortly after the birth of the third age. How precisely this occurred is not known but it seems that the Ancient The Eth'Aderacht gained entrance to the city and rapidly conquered it. They then began to make preparations for continuing the war they had been prevented from completing by The Laiu centuries before.

The city is a Magicoracy. For those uncertain as to the definition of Magiocracy it is simply this: A place ruled by those of ritual power, ruled by Magiarchs. A form of government that it somewhat given to warfare. And a form of governing that is less than efficient, those states ruled by those who spend their lives investigating the mysteries of mystic and supernatural power are rarely best suited to rule and govern the mundane and simple. The cities of Eemyron and Wemyron were fabled for their insular nature which they extremely successfully maintained through use of their infamous Death Wards.

The Magiarchs of Myron are Summoners, they specialise in the Tree of Summoning. A Ritual Tree wisely outlawed by Amora due to the dangers is poses to the world. In short constant summonation weakens the walls of the worlds as with each ritual summonation a hole is punched between worlds to allow what is summoned to enter. The world will eventually repair these holes but if done too will quite simply form tears that are not so easily repaired and even if existing for a relatively short time such holes, or portals, can easily allow the infernal simple entrance to our world even if not specifically called. It seems, much like Mercenaries, Demons and similar cannot resist an open portal when they see it…

They often use the title of Pantathet, meaning one who summons. Specifically they are Invokers, one that that binds power to physical things or calls power from higher beings to themselves. They also use the title Paralorn, an Evoker, one that manipulates the elements. These distinctions are very important within Myron and indeed the titles and ritual power owned will be able to be guessed or at least judged based on this.

Currently the Magiarchs society is power is in flux as they attempt to establish a new social and political structure beneath their Eth'Adaracht conquerors. The city is not a city in the sense of any imperial city, but rather a collection of Magiarchs demesnes with some squalor in between. This has its benefits, but also makes some things more difficult. There are a few places of common ground that all care for but not many.

Additionally whilst their armies are summoned this is not in the normal sense. Rather than a ritual that calls forth beings they have used gates and portals to travel to other worlds and draw them forth. They are loyal and varied in their nature..

This means they have no need to keep a standing army but so long as they are able to maintain their rites and portals are able to draw upon forces from the many worlds to fight for them.

For the first time in probably living memory they have lowered the Death Wards and have not reinstated them. They now have armies on the march and whilst we believe their ultimate goal is to make war with The Horned God of the South the Empire has the unenviable position of being caught in the middle and represents, no doubt, resources for their war effort. We know at this time they are targeting specific places within the empire, and that they are specifically attacking the Elven Vales.

At the Final Dawn marking the end of IM 1009 and the beginning of IM 1010 a great battle was fought, a battle that would in all likelihood be the First Great Battle of the Myron war. This was the Battle of the River Weep. It was fought north of Alguz not far from the pass where the Forces of Myron would need to travel to enter Alguz and the further lands of the Empire.

The battle was vicious and the Empire’s élite helds, the most notable amongst them:

The 101st, lead by The Lord Executioner, Parmonian
The White Templars, lead by Macros, a Paladin of The Source
The Talthari, Lead by Harpell He~Who~Is~Elbrime

Joey and his small band of 101st had taken up the line and the powerful Magery of Kelvar the Blue allowed the White Templars to teleport close to where the battle would draw up in time to take and hold Fort Weep.

A number of ritualists took the battle for the Empire, Kelvar the Blue, Justin The Lefthanded with the 101st, Galdor Bogginson with the Talthari even Senator Saldana brought his ritual arts to bear in the battle.

The Empire was successful but the battle was brutal. Harpell was banished in combat by a great demon from some hell that struck at him. The White Templars took the early brunt of battle, a battle so fierce that even the near indestructible armour that has seen them through many many battles, made for them by the Forge himself was destroyed.


Crucially, at the same time, in the far North, another battle that would impact on the Empire was fought. The Hordehost, had, as was his custom brought his forces to meet those of The Gathen but this year there was something different. This year the Gathen had moved early. This year they had been summoned by the Magiarchs of Myron at the behest of the The Eth'Aderacht. The Myronese had enacted a great Turbulence rite that brought a corridor of the Deathly season to the Hgh North early leading straight frm the lands of the Gathen towards the Empire and the Gathen followed this, almost catching the Red Bought, the élite forces of Ikhala Hordehost off guard.

The Hordehost sent his own summons to Watching-Owl who mustered the armies of the Empire’s tribes to quickly go north and fight this unusually savage threat. With him went Theign Shadow of the Thrice, Nichal Dror Bael, of the Shedeff, King Drago of Keys, Pork Pye of the Holy Kow, Berek Fletcher of Eartholme, Aerlisseroth The Hostile of Trovil. They joined the sacred battle of the tribes to stand against the Gathen.

And as the Empire fought to defend Alguz the Tribes fought to defend the Empire’s northern reaches. They were able to drive back the Gathen, all but the most powerful, she known as Awlis-First-Wife. A fearsome entity.

Why the Myronese attempted to summon the Gathen is not truly known but it has been suggested that the nature of the Gathen as the remaining Bodies of the Ancients who transcended physical form and became The Laiu might provide in some way bodies for the banished Eth'Aderacht such that they can more fully act upon Primus once more.

OOC: This is very very very much a a poor précis of events and I apologise to anyone I’ve missed out mentioning (I will try and flesh this out at some point in the future with a more complete rolecall of those present but have been going by memory). For those interesed in the heroes turn that became a novella and contains full details of the Battle of The River Weep and the Battle of Tar Meadwecka its in the document “A Tale of Two Battles”.

Using a very special knife the City Spirits were both killed at the Dawn, and a single new one was made and invested with Daemonic power. Due to the unprimal nature of the City Spirit, it started to cause demonic rips in reality and allow greater access and demonic summonation power to come to play, manipulating this they quickly deposed the old 'King and Queen' and start to rule with their own council. Someone within the previous leadership group from both cities was instrumental in allowing these things to happen. Someone of Sallow Blood, who may or may not have caught Tallows, a Repudiare of an ancient line.


Or so I heard from a bloke who heard it from a Sailor, who had been a contact with a Magician, who had visited the Twins in order to trade in human slaves, who had told a Molly that had gotten drunk on Lemon'ave...
