Return to the Lore


Masterwarden <World> A reminder, the Tribunal of Gram the Priest for the Murder
                            of the Kingdom's former Knight Commander in the City of
                            Darmahk in violation of the Laws of Darmahk and the
                            Treaties with the Kingdom will commence at Noon Toll in
                            less than one hour. This is an open Tribunal and all are
                            invited.

  [**** Xesta makes a World Announcement ****]
 [*****************************************************]
For those still trying to wake up before the tribunal,
  there's a variety of drinks such as hot chocolate,
      whiskey, tea, juice and coffee in the den!
 [*****************************************************]

  [**** Xesta makes a World Announcement ****]
 [*****************************************************]
 There's also some eggs, bacon and breakfast potatoes,
            so come grab yourself a plate!
 [*****************************************************]

 Kruil <Militia> My Lord, Master Warden, I will hire a few of the Warriors to
                 act as militia during this trial as we are very few militants
                 at the moment, if that is ok with you. I will release them from
                 service after Tribunal.

 Kruil <Southland> All non-militants or non-Warriors shall wait outside the
                   tribunal. Be aware it is forbidden for all non-militants to
                   wield inside the Tribunal. Wielding inside the Tribunal will
                   be cause for immediate shackling

 Masterwarden <Militia> There is no reason for this, make do with what you have
                        and just assign them without official badges.
>   [**** Xesta makes a World Announcement ****]
 [*****************************************************]
  Grab up some breakfast and drinks in the den before
         the tribunal, about 15 minutes to go.
 [*****************************************************]

 Kruil <Militia> understood.




 Kruil <Militia> I will let people in 10 minutes before the assigned time for
                 the procedings to start, Master Warden. Gram will be shackled
                 during the Tribunal.


 Sekmira <Militia> i am aware, Warden. What do you need me to do?
 Kruil <Southland> Warriors will now start allowing people to come in. They will
                   screen you to make sure you are not wielding before giving
                   you signal to come in. Do no come in before they give you the
                   ok. Wielding inside the Tribunal if you are not a militant or
                   a Warrior will result in immediate shackle and be placed in
                   the stockades until the Tribunal is finished
 Kruil <Militia> meet me in the Tribunal
 Kruil <Militia> bring shackles with you, we are the only militants so we are
                 the only ones with the ability to shackle
 Sekmira <Militia> I have two sets, do you think I will need more?
 Kruil <Militia> hopefully not but get a few more just in case.



 Kruil <Militia> Can relay the message I gave in the southland mind to the
                 world, Sekmira? And add that all shall be silent and avoid
                 unnecessary hussle or confusion during the Tribunal under
                 penalty of immediate shackling.

 Valcrest <Southland> As we gather to witness true Darmahkian justice this day,
                      I remind you all that it is an honor above all else to
                      serve Darmahk in a capacity beyond your guild, and that
                      honor is twice so for the Militants that guard justice in
                      Darmahk. Seek out Warden Kruil if you wish to enforce
                      Darmahk's justice and serve beyond yourself.
 Kruil <Militia> My Lord, Master Warden, shall you need escort from the palace
                 to the Tribunal? I am ready to do so if you require it.

  [**** Sekmira makes a World Announcement ****]
 [*****************************************************]
     Warriors will be allowing people to enter the
 Tribunal. They will screen you to ensure you are not
  wielding and signal for you to enter. Do not enter
  until they signal. Be aware it is forbidden for any
but the Warriors and Militia to wield during Tribunal.
        Those caught doing so will be shackled.

Militia Tribunal - Darmahk

   The Tribunal is wood floored with banners of the Militia hanging from flag
poles. Rudimentary benches line the back of the area that leads toward the
stockade. Tarps block out the sun and offer shade. A circular small wood
platform sits in the center of the area to hold a shackled person for the
wardens to question. Through a door to the west is a holding room to question a
criminal prior to a review.

->Mellisande reaches out to brush Eixie's side in a gentle touch as she draws
near.
The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Tiel you will speak when Xesta is
finished."
> 
> ->Xesta steps forward and bows once more, "I was in the grasslands when I heard
Tiel cry out for a militant in the den. As a Trader, I wished to make sure the
area was safe and that Tiel was as well. Upon entering the city, I was just west
of Jerahd's and I saw Gram stood over Dhubrin's corpse and belongings, just
before hearing the criers speak of murder."
->Tiel leans forward in respectful acknowledgement.


Eldrin looks at Gram.
Clio looks at Gram.
Xesta says, "That is the extent of what I saw. Tiel had the rest."
You nod.
> The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Tiel speak what you
know."
> 
Soliana looks at Gram.
->Tiel bows his head respectfully before straightening up and claiming in a
carrying voice, "I will try to make this as detailed yet succinct as possible.
On the day in question I was sittin' in the Den selling tickets. The only other
occupants were my servants, a porter, a nykan woman I didn't know, Priest Gram,
and Trader Loudry who seemed to've dozed off. That is when the dwarf walked in.
I didn't recognize 'im at the time. Gram left the Den, and I was able to get in
enough conversation to learn the dwarf was Knight Dhubrin before the Priest came
back in."
Tiel says, "Priest Gram said something along the lines of, 'Good of you to come.
            Should we take this to the road?' Dhubrin seemed confused at first,
            but then they spoke of some faith matters, Gram claiming Dhubrin
            knew his status as an enemy of the Lord, while the knight claimed he
            was 'waiting to hear back from his counter offer' and didnt actually
            know his status at present. I asked them not to fight in the Den,
            trying to lighten the mood a bit with some humor but that didn't
            seem to work. Dhubrin stated that despite the claim of the High
            Priestess not desirin' an incident Gram seemed ready to murder a man
            in the Den. The Priest acknowledged this and tightened his cord
            thing, but Dhubrin left. Gram followed."

> Ednia arrives from the south.
Hrung looks at Ednia.
Arco greets Ednia.
->Tiel shifts his weight from one foot to another, "I thought it was over at
that, but shortly after Dhubrin walked back in and appeared no more than ruffled
by their encounter. Made a comment about that 'stupid git' and seemed ready to
retake his seat, but Gram entered and prayed to debilitate the knight. The
Priest attacked, and as far as I could tell Dhubrin only ever got his Traveler
staff out in retaliation, seemed really winded by the fight and curses of the
Lord. I yelled for a Militant, but the two took off. Moments later the rumour
'murder of Dhubrin' was heard."

->Tiel awkwardly bows again in conclusion.
Soliana looks at Tiel.
You nod.
> Cleta looks at Tiel.
The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "That seems fairly clear of the
event and in accordance with reports."
> Your alias line is too long.
> The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Dhubrin, as you were involved,
what can you tell me of you knowledge of why you were attacked. It is well known
that death can reign terror on the mind and you may not even remember that you
were attacked, but it is clear you were. Do you have any recollection before or
after the event as to why you might have been targeted by the Priest
Gram?"
> Sekmira frowns.
->Dhubrin stands, and bows, saying, "Aye, sir." He then prepares to speak.

Dhubrin says to Masterwarden, "Good Masterwarden, I had been at an auction a few
                               days prior, here in Darmahk. An axe came on the
                               block, and a comment was made about it helping ye
                               get ahead in life. I thought it was a funny time
                               to make a joke, so I reached in my backpack and
                               got a body head out, thinkin' it was a goat."

> Dhubrin says, "I'd forgotten that somebody'd handed me a head of the Dahk Priest
               from the Cathedral a couple days before, and I'd stuck it in the
               bag, so I got it out instead. They all kind of looked the same,
               mind ye."
->Naksi runs her hands down her neck, flattening her fur.
The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Are you insinuating that a High
Priest of Dahkoar appears as a goat?"
> You peer at Dhubrin.
> 
Faldu arrives from the south.
Faldu bows.
Dhubrin says to Masterwarden, "No, sir not at all. It's just when they're upside
                               down in the bag, with all the blowers and such, a
                               quick glance they kind of get covered up and all
                               look the same. Neck guts are neck guts, after
                               all."
Azhlath arrives from the south.
Valcrest looks at Faldu.
Valcrest looks at Azhlath.
Palace guard says, "Poor cover Milord, but likely understandable."
> You nod.
> The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Continue."
> 
Dhubrin says to Masterwarden, "Aye, sir. So anyways, They'd offered to charge me
                               twelve hundred crown as a fine, which I felt was
                               awful high for the deed, especially since fines
                               over a thousand crown are rarely doled out for
                               multiple murders, as in the case of the late lad
                               Salafian. The High Priestess had said they were
                               in their rights to hunt me, but that she dinnae
                               want an international incident, so I figured we
                               were still in the "lets talk this through" phase
                               of things."
Dallia arrives from the south.
->Dhubrin prattles on, a bit longer, then stops and says, "Long story short, I
yanked out a Dahk priest head at the auction. That's why they were mad at me."
Kruil looks at Dallia.

Ihuku looks at Dallia.
The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Seems like it would have been
cheaper to pay the demand."
> The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Besides Gram are there any from
the faith of Dahkoar present who know about this enemy status?"
> ->Talmaun raises a hand.
Phaedri nods.
->Hrung raises a hand.
->Vemery also raises a hand.

Eveline nods.
The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Talmaun, you were first, tell us
what you know."
> ->Zain gives a nod of his head as well.

> Ihuku looks at Talmaun.

->Talmaun bows, "Honestly, my Lord, all I know is of the enemy status. My
knowledge does not extend passed that he was declared an enemy of the faith and
that reparations were demanded."

> You nod.
> The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Zain, you are a High Priest of
Dahkoar what can you say on the matter? Is this enemy status still in affect? Do
you have anything to add?"
> Naksi looks at Zain.
The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Endarken us if you
will."
> 
->Zain bows respectfully to the Masterward, "The status as an enemy of the faith
is given to those whom transgress on more than one occasion against the Lord's
faith. There was talk of many runins with the Knight Dhubrin and the event at
the auction was the final before action was had. While he was notified by letter
from the High priestess well before his death that he was offically declared an
enemy, his recent death as closed that matter for the faith."
You nod.
> 
The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Let us turn to Gram. Priest Gram,
can you tell us your reasoning in breaking the law and if you have an excuse for
it and a good purpose for murder?"
> You see a male nykos,

Before you is a man of mild contrasts and sharp angles. Mahogany skin plays
parchment to pitted marks of ugly scarring that encircle at his biceps, wrist,
thighs, and ankles, evoking a tribal significance to his visage. A lean frame
and feverish, hunter's eyes kindle a restrained energy to his often-time slow
and deliberate movements which belie the danger of the sharp claws that tip each
digit. Instead of appearing to be the embodiment of what it would mean to be
handsome, he is instead rail thin with a whip cord musculature. The nearest term
that might tame the neat yet voluminous grey hair that falls to his midback,
along with the heated coffeed gazes found within his eyes would be off-putting.
Lanky threads of grey are parted by the sharp points of his ears.
His predator's gaze holds a restrained, feverish quality
He is in perfect condition.
  Armour : Raven cord
Clothing : Dahkoar clerical vestments
           Large scabbard {two handed staff}
He has some coins.
> Valcrest looks at Gram.
Ihuku looks at Gram.
Theas crosses his arms.
->Eldrin continues to watch.
Cleta looks at Gram.
Tarathiel looks at Gram.
->Gram rasps, "You will be the judge of the quality of reason, but these were my
reasons and thoughts at the time... "

Ednia looks at Gram.
Oros looks at Gram.
Naksi looks at Gram.
Eveline has reconnected.
->Hrung scans the crowd instead.
Arco looks at Gram.
->Gram rasps, "Dhubrin is not well liked by myself and some of the south, on
every occasion he has come south in the last 4 months. He has caused some
offense or poked and prodded, using politics or his faith to hide. It happened
with Miri, it happened with Zandr and it happened at teh auction... "
->Phaedri listens to the proceedings while staying vigilant.

Palace guard says, "He is a sneaky bastard, Milord. This is true."
> Merek looks at palace guard.
You peer at Palace guard.
> ->Merek watches the proceedings with a detached interest.
Palace guard says, "I appologi...."
> The Master Warden backhands the Palace Guard!
Palace guard died horribly.
Palace guard drops a gloves, a chainmail and a long sword.
Palace guard dies.
Sekmira has reconnected.
Ednia looks at corpse of Palace guard.
You nod at Gram.
> The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Continue"
> ->Gram rasps, "I woke late friday evening after a disturbance to my rest to find
he had been marked as an enemy of the faith. The high priestess announced it
with the ritual words. We shall not rest until the altar drinks of his blood.
These words are nigh holy and as a servant of the lord I am not inclined to
debate, complain or hedge against them. I simply accepted it as it is and went
about my duties until an opportunity presented itself "

->Soliana flinches slightly.
Valcrest gets a corpse of Palace guard from the Militia Tribunal - Darmahk.
Valcrest leaves south.
Valcrest arrives from the south.
Hrung nods at Valcrest.
->Gram rasps, "There was some words over the mind on saturday that he had been
informed of his status. Outside of this I am not privy to whatever exchanges
there may have been... "


==============================================
  You receive a selected group roleplay bonus. 
  You receive 15700 experience!
  You receive 16700 coins!
  This is a special bonus given to a selected group.
  You should not announce it to others.
==============================================
->Vemery quietly makes some notations on her parchment.
You need to select a target: move stockade <target> or move holding <target>.
> ->Rakashkil looks down at where the corpse was.
->Gram rasps, "On the day of penence. He chose, as is his way to come south
regardless of what other people might call common sense, to see if he could poke
prod and pretend innocence. He knew very well there was clergy of the faith in
the tavern when he announced he would wonder down to darmahk for a drink. "

->Masterwarden rubs his chin in thought nodding slightly.
> ->Gram rasps, "When he arrived, as the trader said, I offfered him battle on the
road outside after ignoring some nonsense. I am yet to see him utter any words
worth my ears and so I treated him at that time in that fashion. We did battle
on the north road briefly before he ran like a coward back into the city. At
that point I was so enraged that he was again using politics to hide from his
punishment that it overcame my respect for the overseer. For that I offer
apology. "

Cleta blinks.
Dhubrin raises one eyebrow.
->Dhubrin frowns and shakes his head quietly.
Marion arrives from the south.
Hrung looks at Marion.
->Gram falls silent, having concluded his telling.
Vemery smiles at Marion in quiet greeting.
Dhubrin looks at Gram.

Eixie looks at Gram.
Eixie looks at Dhubrin.

> The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "Priest Gram, your actions while
in seeming accordance with your faith, were not justified to murder within my
Lord's city. You could have done a number of other things: One, verified with
the clergy on the action and had it sanctioned by the Palace through the
Emissaries. Two, waited until outside of the city. Three, waited for resolution
of the incident with your faith and Dhubrin as it seems it had not finalized.
Four, engage in more clarification. Death within the city must be either
authorize by the Palace or an immediate danger to citizens. Neither was the
case."
> Rakashkil looks at Dhubrin.
Gram nods.

> The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "All of these things were not
done. While it is apparent that Dhubrin did come to Darmahk knowing of the
status, which I find either brave or foolish, he is afforded protection of the
city as any visitor is."
> The Masterwarden says authoritatively, "My decision is simple: Ten
minutes of prayers and preparation. Then death by hanging at the
stockade."
> 
You need to select a target: move stockade <target> or move holding <target>.
> Darmahk guards drag Gram to the the stockade!

Militia Stockade - Darmahk

   The stockade grounds are mainly dirt mingled with some gravel. High walls of
spiked wood surround the area. Stacks of chains and blocks for fitting new
holding stocks are stacked against the walls. Behind the stocks a gallows built
on a wooden stage holds a wood crane and steps to hang criminals and traitors.

North of the stockade is the Tribunal where criminals and others under suspicion
of the Militia are taken to be interrogated by the Militia Wardens. A crate of
old vegetables rests next to the stockade.

A worn copper bell hangs from the stockade.

   Obvious exits: north and southwest.

holding stocks are stacked against the walls. Behind the stocks a gallows built
on a wooden stage holds a wood crane and steps to hang criminals and traitors.

North of the stockade is the Tribunal where criminals and others under suspicion
of the Militia are taken to be interrogated by the Militia Wardens. A crate of
old vegetables rests next to the stockade.

A worn copper bell hangs from the stockade.
