Dear Friends,

As many of you are aware the Disiciple of The Lord of Midnight, Francis Damria, was Slain yesterday. I am sure that all members of the Order would like to say a special thankyou to Light-of-the-void Versey who was responsible for his final destruction!

Amongst the Order members present were Guy, Hector, Horace but we can not afford to forget the tremedous works of our new friend Zhara and Lamina of Shaehan and Adam.

Thanks to the works of these valiant individuals the evil, unholy works of this villain has now be torn assunder! His corspe has been brought back to Gothiel to ensure his remains may never be tampered with except to ensure his final and true death. Before his final death I made it known to him that his attempts to corrupt the pure soul of our most beloved Jericho has also failed. The Grove is now safe from Damria's depradations!

Whilst we must rejoice it is also of great importance that we pray and mourn the terrible deaths of at least fourteen villagers of our beloved city who were diseased as a final spiteful attempt to weaken us and prevent us from accomplishing our task. Whilst we were able to save thirteen the rapid onset of this foul contagion prevented us from reaching the others in time. We must do all we can to bury these beloved people and give wharever aid we can to the families of the dead.

I would ask all members of the Order to meet at the Grove as soon as possible so we may mark the past years events victories and losses and give thanks to the Lady while we heal.

I am positive that Armitage will update other as soon as posible to other events that took place on this day.

My dear friends,

It was good to see some of you again yesterday, and to meet some of you for the first time.

My sincere congratulations on your success. I am sorry that I was not able to meet with you again at the end of the day, but the group I travelled with was hard-pressed indeed, and had little time to ascertain the progress of other missions.

Starsday was a time of joy and great sadness. I hope that it will provide a stepping-stone towards further success, both for the Order, and for the Church at large.

I hope I will see some of you soon when we gather to rescue our friend who is still trapped by the Toutatis.

May you ever walk in starlight,

Ignatius

Mellow greetings,

Starsday just gone was full of much to celebrate, which i shall try to account here.

Firstly I would ask all who love the Lady and follow the code of the Paladin to show you support for Watch Sergeant Harlem Aggronar, Knight of the Land, and newly sworn Paladin of the Stars. He took his vows scant days before the epic events tat unfolded and upheld the very finest attributes which marks a member of the Order. I would like to welcome you to our ranks formally and offer these words of wisdom: never give up, look to the stars for guidance when times are grim, and remember the Code of the Order for it will serve you well.

Secondly to Baroness Winterhaven. She argued hammer and tongs with some of the faithful over a serious matter of Noble Blood and stood her ground. Though i may personally not agree with her thinking, she has my undying respect for sticking to her belief no matter how misguided we may feel about it. I pray that with time she will see the Truth, and join with me in prayers for the fallen Noble's return with a clean slate.

Brother Guy: this man embodies the second of our pillars, Courage, far more than i could ever hope to. Whilst engaged in battle with the Fallen, i was beset from two sides. As i began to fall, i felt his strong hands and the healing hands of the Lady. He would have given his life for me throwing himself over me to shield my corpus, and would have died if it were not for Falorn and Lamina of Shaehan bringing us both back to the world. I give thanks to Her for your joining the Order.

Lastly I wish to thank the one person who i never say it to. This person has been there for the Order when i have not, has saved those i cannot, and kept each of you true despite the heaviest burden. I call you to stand and drink to the Visitor of the Order, Gwyneth Midwinter. Paladin, Guardian Angel, Friend and Sister-in-Arms. Rejoining the fight after tending to some grievous eye problems (smile.gif), she led the Order to victory over the villain Damria. Time and again when i have fallen, her voice has risen over all to lead and guide you to safety. She has spoken of peace when violence seemed the only option saving many lives on all sides. She has borne the Spark of our Lady in her body and kept it safe, teaching it what it means to live on Primus.

All of us must thank the Lady for bringing us all together under a Banner we can be proud of. Whilst our work is far, far from over we can take stock and know that we have done good, have done the right thing. Be proud my friends and celebrate, i dont think the Lady would have it any other way.

In service

Armitage

Master of the Order
Archon of Stars

Thankyou Armitage for your very kind words. I will do all I can to further my knowledge and understanding so that I may better serve the Lady and help the Order.

I would too like to officially welcome our new Paladin. Brother Harlem fought like a lion yesterday, he has made us all proud.

Although this is a great time to celebrate, it is also a time for remembrance for those that we have lost in this long hard struggle, some that have come back to us on the wheel some that have not. I could list them all here but I do not feel that I should, what I would ask you all to do is bow you head for a minute and prey to the Lady for our fallen be they fellows or Villagers.

Maybe one day we will erect a memorial to them?

For now enjoy the beauty the is the Light for Our Lady and enjoy our victory, be with you families and love ones and have fun.

Because soon we have to answer some questions.

1) Was there only one disciple

2) who is the Lord

3) What does the Order need to do about the troubles in the North

I'm sorry you can see where I'm going with this perhaps I'm getting old a cinacle but it seems to me that the better we appear to be doing the worse it gets arround the courner.

Grand news indeed! Well done!

So sorry i couldn't be there like, but, well, ya know, guess that happens sometimes.

I'll come visit the body of Damria, and i'll take great pleasure in performing the rite to make sure he is destroyed forever. I'll get the Angels to carry me there straight away.

Thank you for your words Gwyneth, Armitage they have inspired me even more so, to continue my training as a Paladin of the Lady.

Its a work in progress though, I now have even more respect for those Paladin's of the order, its hard work I must say!
To fight by the side of brothers and sisters in arms, for the Lady and for the Land, is the best feeling in the world though, and I hope I can continue to do so for the rest of my days.

Sincerely looking forward to our next meeting,

Harlem Aggronar

Paladin of the Lady
Knight Of The Land
Endorser of Halgarian broadswords!

All,
Thank you all for your help.
Bea and Basil know in depth what is occuring in the north and I'm sure the faithful of the Order will be welcomed gladly in the destruction of the Toutatis and more importantly the rescuing of Thomas.
If any of you need me or my aid just ask.
In Starlight,
Zhara

I am glad to hear what has transpired and I promise to travel and strengthen my new form so that I can better serve the Lady and the Order.

Also a most humble welcome to those that have joined the Order and a sadened remeberance for those who have passed to the Ladys side.

Thankyou Bradley.

I will direct you to the chimney where we hid his body. .....i'm a little confused but Light-of-the-Void believed that would be the best place.... still I have watched over it until it could be laid to rest permantly

I would echo the words of my brother Grit, in apologising for not being able to attend and offer my assistance this starsday past - I was unavoidably occupied...

In answer to Simons questions....

1) no, there are 3 disciples and a 4th senior disciple.

2) 'The Lord' if you refer to the deity we know as Lord of Midnight is an evil dark god. In the north this god is known as Toutatis, and in the lands to the west he has another name.

3) We should give all the sinners the chance for redemption. They will all have the chance to turn to the light when we send them to meet The Lady.

Have heart Simon. Do not be cynical - The harder we press the darkness, the more desperate it becomes. We will win.

Armitage has already relayed this to the church but by all means Zhara you are welcome to relay this again. It never hurts to make sure all are clear on events and occurances.
