Anarcus, Radah and Myself recently travelled with a Group of Mercenaries from the Court of Almacsa. Most of you won’t believe what we did, so I will not try to convince you. Suffice to say it was important and the safety of Primus and the whole Exostance was held in the balance.

It was a hard fort week, with many loses and sacrifice’s made, but as the sun came up on our final day, it became apparent that we as a group were not going to make it. There were a number of options open to us, and those gathered from our Church sat to converse with our Lord Michael and each other.

The choices Laid before us were as follows.
Run away, and allow the enemy to gain a very strong foothold upon primus and condemn the rest of our group to certain death, Radah the Hand of The High Priest, Sacrifice himself to be reborn to secure the victory. Or for our glorious High priest to sacrifice himself forever, to bring on the victory.
The decision was not one any of us took lightly, it troubled Anarcus for some time. But he made his decision.

He would not run to fight another day. He in his 30 years as a mercenary had never run away, and he would not condem his oldest friend Gerehax to her death. He would not run and condemn the church to be judged by the Empire.
He sees Radah as his greatest conversion. He would not risk bitterness on Radah’s turning of the wheel to undo his great work, and the turning of Radah from the Darkness. In his eyes he would not ask another member of the faith to do something he was not prepared to do.

As such he made the decision to sacrifice himself, consumed by our ritual, never to sit beside our Lord Michael, and never to walk Primus again. It saddens me to tell you that he is gone forever.

Never shall we forget his Sacrifice or his greatness. He died to protect his church, his friends, the Exostance, and all life. To that end I announce that always will he be remembered on the 6th of this month. Long shall it stand in our calendar as our new Holy Day, The Day of Anarcus.

He had a number of dying wishes, some of which we completed on the day, some of which I shall endeavour to complete in the coming months. He has asked me to stand in his stead, and be the High Priest. An honour which I have accepted, and hope to be as good a leader to our faith as he was.
As we said many times throughout the week. “You can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs”, and Anarcus was one hell of a good Egg. Goodbye good friend. May we all sip some of the Holy Water tonight.

I will follow this with an announcement to the mercenary community as a whole.

Where you were his fire,
So I am his light.
Follow the rays I give,
step from flame to flame.
See with eyes of fire and light
and find solace.

This is the most terrible news I have heard in all of my life. My brother and founder of the Church of Saint Michael together from our first days in the lands of Skylove.

I will mourn for an eternity at this loss.
