Saniago Torres part 9: Illian prepares.

Post by Elysia » Mon Jan 06, 2020 6:19 pm

About a year ago, a False Dragon from the books attacked Illian a number of times. Gorin Rogad's storyline was never concluded, while his ending was referenced in the books. A good chance to tie everything together and introduce the leg up for DS, whose quest is up next.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos narrates 'All Illian Companions are to report to the Chambers of the Council of Nine.'

Chambers of the Council of Nine
This large room is lit by huge mirrored golden stand-lamps and others
hanging on chains from the ceiling. The snowy marble walls are carved in
friezes showing battles, and ships crowding the marsh-bordered harbor of
Illian. At the far end of the room, nine heavily carved and gilded
armchairs stand like thrones atop a high stair-fronted white dais. The
center chair has a back higher than that of the others.

An Illian Companion stands here, stoically surveying his surroundings.
Gregorin den Lushenos, Speaker of the Council of Nine stands here.
A stocky man stands here, with a commanding presence.

Rhaj has arrived from the west.

Rhaj snaps to attention and salutes grandly.
An Illian Companion closes the doubledoors.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos nods at Rhaj.

Rhaj shifts uncomforatbly.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'We of the Council have been discussing the events surrounding this False Dragon.'

Rhaj nods in agreement.

Rhaj says 'Yessir'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'While obviously Tear is a target, we cannot overlook our proximity to Tear and the strategic importance of Illian to any Dragonsworn force.'

Lord Brend nods in agreement.

Rhaj nods in agreement.

Lord Brend says 'If I were to attack Tear, I would use Illian as a base. By land and by sea.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos nods at Lord Brend.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Therefore, we must strengthen our borders.'

Rhaj nods in agreement.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'We should take the hillfort east of Illian that is currently held by Magita and her men.'

Rhaj nods in agreement.

Rhaj says 'I can form a team, sir. Just tell me when.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'That way, we can both secure our border and prevent the Dragonsworn incursions.'

Rhaj nods in agreement.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Also, they will need better than usual weapons. See if you can require a good axe, a good sword and a good spear.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Report back when you have taken the fort.'

Rhaj says 'Yessir'

Rhaj snaps to attention and salutes grandly.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos nods at Rhaj.
Lord Brend nods absently.

Rhaj opens the doubledoors.
Rhaj leaves west.

~@~

People run around, killing Magita's fort and buying her allegiance, for now. They collect the weapons that were asked for. This was all really an excuse to get people to do something, otherwise the whole thing would've been rather short. Or rather, it could have been, if not for some back and forths that players decided on.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos narrates 'The Council of Nine is in open session, all who are friends of Illian may attend.'

Chambers of the Council of Nine
This large room is lit by huge mirrored golden stand-lamps and others
hanging on chains from the ceiling. The snowy marble walls are carved in
friezes showing battles, and ships crowding the marsh-bordered harbor of
Illian. At the far end of the room, nine heavily carved and gilded
armchairs stand like thrones atop a high stair-fronted white dais. The
center chair has a back higher than that of the others.

Bofin looks at Adael.
Iria says 'a tairen horse no less!'

Rhaj says 'Seriously!'

Rhaj smirks.
Shiva sighs loudly.
Ominas stands awkwardly, shifting his attention from the door to the backs of the Sedai.

Derick says 'back off my horse illianers....i was drunk'

People look at Lord Brend.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos raises his voice and calls for silence.

Rhaj says 'A drink warder? Your Aes Sedai may not approve.'

Derick snickers softly.

Carter says 'says a Red Eagle'
Rhys says 'Easy, Warder...we need alliances here, not petty hostilities.'

Lord Brend stands quietly to the side, observing the party.

Shiva quietly moves to the back of the room.
Kitiara nods at Leria.
Shiva folds her hands behind her back.

Rhaj says 'I am glad for the size of this chamber.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Perhaps some of you are aware that some time ago, we had a problem with a False Dragon, named Gorin Rogad.'

Rhaj rifle through papers to check the fire code.
Rhys strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'He attacked Illian and was fought off on more than one occasion.'

Erulisse nods in agreement.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'The last time he was encountered on the field, he declared he would march on Tear, but he has apparently never done so.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'He would sometimes take the form of a spectre, a ghost if you like.'

Surtain says 'the stone stands!'

An Illian Companion glares at Surtain.

Carter ruffles Surtain's hair playfully.

Lord Brend arches an eyebrow at the last bit of information.

Kitiara looks at Carter archly.
Alyse looks concerned.
Kitiara nods.
Rhaj arches an eyebrow.
Rhys looks around slowly, as if something is hidden in the room.
Leria nods her head briefly in thought.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'While you were campaigning at the hillfort, a Dragonsworn called at the gate, asking for parlay.'

Shivar's eyes wander along the friezes, humming quietly.
Erulisse frowns.

An Illian Companion mimics the word silently, parfait, pardon? Par-what?

Alyse chuckles politely.
Iria nods at an Illian Companion.
Rhys stuffs a pipe with a foul smelling weed and begins to puff absent mindedly.
Chohag has arrived from the west.
Chohag bows deeply.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'We heard him out, of course.'

Yeri whispers something to an Illian Companion.
Yeri whispers to an Illian Companion 'It's something you do when gambling.'

Rhaj scooches over to allow more room.
Alyse sips from a tall tankard.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'It appears he and his friends are ready to give us the location of Gorin Rogad.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Apparently, they too now believe he is a False Dragon.'

Iria says 'a trap surely'

Kitiara frowns.
Iria strokes her chin thoughtfully.
Alyse ponders life, the universe, and everything.
Rhys nods at Iria.

Rhys says 'What cause have we to trust these Dragonsworn?'
Derick says 'its not a trap if we KNOW its a trap...'
Yeri says 'And yet, we must march boldly into it. They'll never expect it.'

Rhys puffs at his pipe, a paranoid gleam in his eye.

Kitiara says 'Let Lord Gregorin finish...'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Our scouts have determine a large gathering is taking place in the aforementioned location.'

Leria fiddles with the hem of her gloves and looks at Kitiara from the edge of her eyes.

Erulisse says 'An opportunity to wipe out both groups perhaps '

Surtain says 'send in Yeri to spring it, then we come and avenge him'

Alyse nods at Lord Gregorin den Lushenos.

Shivar says 'How deep are the Council's coffers? We don't come cheap.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Since this pertains to False Dragons and Dragonsworn, Aes Sedai counsel would be appreciated.'

Kitiara says 'Lord Gregorin...'

Lord Brend's lip twitches slightly.

Rhys gets a foul smelling weed from a leather saddlebag.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos nods at Kitiara.

Rhys puts a foul smelling weed in a long wooden pipe.

Alyse leans back, her tankard in hand.

Kitiara says 'We have been fooled by another supposed Dragon, at Cold Rocks Hold. We were led there and a large group of allies slaughtered Aiel both friend and foe... this Santiago is cunning, and if his men lead us one way, we should be wary of doing his bidding.'

Alyse nods at Kitiara.

Rhys puffs contentedly on a long wooden pipe. The smell is akin to a skunk...

Rhaj says 'Is this Saniago directing us here? Or a Dragonsworn from our world?'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'These men were identified as the ones who originally followed this Gorin Rogad.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Some of them even survived the battle at our gates.'

Leria says 'What knowledge has been gleaned of this Dragon, is that he is a dangerous fool, if not cunning and charismatic to a point. '

Rhaj nods at Leria.

Iria says 'some say very handsome too'

Iria nods at Leria.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Which Dragon? Gorin Rogad who has been plaguing Illian, or the other?'

Kitiara says 'Gorin is a plague, but the enemy of our enemy may be our friend... I say this cautiously... I trust neither. '

Erulisse arches an eyebrow.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Are you suggesting we let a False Dragon run free?'

Alyse shivers uncomfortably.

Kitiara says 'But if Saniago is trying to direct our forces to wipe out Gorin... we should consider why.'
Erulisse says 'I certainly hope not.'
Rhaj says 'Im not sure this direction is from Saniago. Unless I'm misunderstanding'
Kitiara says 'Not run free... but we face great threats. What did the Dragonsworn want in return for this information?'
Derick says 'because saniago uses other to complete his goals'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos shrugs helplessly.

Leria nods in agreement with Kitiara,"Was there anything else of imposrtance that this emiassary gave note of?"

Rhaj nods at Derick.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Amnesty, of course. They wanted to return home to their farms and trades.'

Shiva says 'This all seems rather convenient.'
Surtain says 'are their farms and trades in illian?'
Alyse says 'Could this be a diversion of some kind?'
Derick says 'perhaps we should remove the insane false dragon...then remove saniago when he arrives'

Kitiara nods at Alyse.
Rhaj nods at Derick.
Walden nods at Derick.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'They are Illianers. Gorin Rogad is an Illianer, although it shames me to say that.'

Kitiara says 'My thoughts, perhaps we split our forces, investigate this Morin and his location, while leaving a sizable force here to defend Illian.'
Rhaj says 'I think they need to be removed, personally.'

--Boboliosie is announced to be around and several warders and their apprentices move out.--

The doubledoors closes quietly.

Surtain says 'he fireworked my bar opening, so he's up for anything'

Alyse arches an eyebrow.
Rhys strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Lord Brend says 'While I am new to this Council, I feel like we cannot let the silverpike nibble at our heels while the shark may be miles away.'

Leria says 'Even splitting our forces may leave either party at a disadvantage. '
Alyse says 'To think anyone would use one of our Guild's fireworks against the Light.'

Rhaj nods at Lord Brend.

Kitiara says 'I am advising caution. We should not rush blindly to what seems like information to good to be true.'

Alyse nods at Kitiara.

Kitiara says 'Why now, why when the world is in turmoil from this new threat do these Dragonsworn switch sides?'
Leria says 'We know of the extent of the strength of both of these false Dragons.'
Iria says 'perhaps a scouting party could be sent to see what they can learn?'

Kitiara nods at Iria.

Rhaj says 'I like that idea.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos nods slowly.

Rhys nods in agreement.

Kitiara says 'I strongly advise a force stay here. Illian should not be vunerable.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Indeed, that is a good idea.'

Rhaj nods in agreement.
Leria nods in agreement.

Erulisse says 'Lord Brend, what was the location that these alleged defectors disclosed?'

Iria gets a lost look in her eyes, whispering to herself 'someone expendable perhaps'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Rhaj, will you accompany the scouts?'

Alyse nods in agreement.

Rhys says 'Would you like my group to scout or guard Illian?'
Rhaj says 'I will, sir.'

Lord Brend says 'The said they were in northern Illian, east off the road.'

Erulisse nods in agreement.

Rhaj says 'If willing, I'd like Aes Sedai among my scout group. At elast one.'

Leria whispers something to Shiva.

Walden says 'I know the land well, I am happy to be a scout'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Assemble your group then.'

Rhys nods in agreement.

Rhaj says 'Am I dismissed sir?'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Dismissed.'

They find the farmhouse.

By the Farmhouse
A plain farmhouse of wood and plaster stands surrounded by fields that lie
untended. The farmhouse's roof is in a good state of repair and the
shutters hang neatly on their hinges, covering the windows. The door has
been nailed shut with planks. A well stands in the yard and a stack of
wooden blocks lies under a small roof on the side of a barn.

Walden leaves west. [SNEAK]

Adael knocks on the barreddoor.

Rhys bellows 'We have come to meet with your leader'

Gorin Rogad bellows 'They have locked me in here!'

Surtain says 'the false dragon is false!'

Rhaj says 'About the false dragon they want removed?'

Alyse shivers uncomfortably.

Leria says 'We come to speak with the emissary regarding Saniago.'

Rhys shrugs helplessly.

Adael says 'Don't think the emissarys mentioned Saniago'
Adael says 'they mentioned this homie Gorin'
Rhaj says 'It was Gorin'
Adael says 'Who they have locked up for us'
Adael says 'how nice'
Leria says 'Gorin was more of a ghost no?'
Surtain says 'you are a wimp!'
Rhaj says 'Where is this Gorin you want dealt with?'

A burly dragonsworn says 'We have him locked in here.'

Adael nods in agreement.
Rhaj nods in agreement.

Shivar says 'Slightly concerning, but the group to our west are nudists.'

A burly dragonsworn says 'We will give him to Illian to be done with as they please, in exchange for amnesty.'
A Dragonsworn says 'We just want to go back home.'

Alyse chuckles politely.

Shivar says 'Job's a good'un'
Rhaj says 'We should scout the area for others.'
Shivar says 'Do we still get paid.'

Adael strokes his chin thoughtfully.
Rhys strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Adael says '1w is the only other room so far'
Surtain says 'I think they should disarm if they are going home'
Rhys says 'I believe we should take these men up on their offer'
Rhaj says 'To be sure theres no trap'

Rhys nods at Surtain.

Surtain says 'farmers don't need'
Iria says 'That is likely up to the Council to decide'
Rhaj says 'I can only advise that. Not so it myself.'
Leria says 'What are your terms of amnesty?'

Iria nods at Rhys.
Rhaj nods in agreement.

Surtain says 'long poleaxes'

Rhys says 'The Council gave us authority to promise amnesty for you and your men'

Erulisse looks suddenly woozy.

Rhys says 'In exchange for this criminal.'

Erulisse says 'Fire and death...'

A burly dragonsworn says 'Did they really?'

Rhaj says 'I'm not sure that persission has been given yet.'

A burly dragonsworn puffs out his chest.

Leria looks at Erulisse.

Rhaj says 'We are here to scout only.'

A burly dragonsworn says 'I'd like to see some proof of that.'

Adael nods in agreement.

Rhys says 'Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Amnesty, of course. They wanted to return home to their farms and trades.''

Erulisse shakes her head as though to clear it.

Adael says 'We could return to the Council and report to Grgorin'

Iria says 'Perhaps Rhaj could return to Illian to bring back something written?'

Rhaj nods in agreement.
Rhys nods in agreement.

Rhys says 'We should return to meet with the Council'
Rhaj says 'Is it then the counsel of the Aes Sedai that we make this deal?'

A burly dragonsworn glares at Rhaj.

Rhys says 'I believe.'

A burly dragonsworn says 'Never say that in my presence!'

Adael frowns.

Adael says 'Never say never'

Adael shakes his head to clear out a forgotten melody.

Rhaj says 'You give me orders now, Dragonsworn?'

Erulisse appears slightly dazed, eyes unfocused.

Leria says 'The Council of Nine asked for the assistance of the White Tower in this manner. '
Rhaj says 'Bold for a man looking for amnesty.'

Shivar shuffles a few feet further away from Erulisse.
Rhaj arches an eyebrow.

Iria says 'Well, let's return to Illian and report back?'
Iria says 'If a deal is to be made, we can have it drafted up and return'

Rhys nods in agreement.

Rhys says 'Sounds fine to me.'
Rhaj says 'I think we should do a quick patrol of area'
Rhys says 'Didn't we just do that?'
Rhys says 'But we can patrol on the way back.'
Rhys says 'Also'

Rhys shrugs helplessly.

Rhaj says 'We are comfortable there is no trap then?'
Rhaj says 'That was our job, no?'
Rhys says 'The rest of our numbers are in Illian'
Adael says 'They haven't attacked us yet'
Erulisse says 'Something ...'
Rhys says 'Guarding the gates'

Rhaj nods in agreement.

Adael says 'And if this Gorin fellow is locked up as they say'
Rhys says 'I take these men at their word'
Rhaj says 'Lets report then'
Rhys says 'thus far they have been honorable'
Leria says 'Can we see Gorin? '
Rhys says 'They offer their former leader'

Iria nods at Leria.

Shivar says 'I'll stay at the camp.'
Rhys says 'The criminal known as Gorin'

Shivar shrugs helplessly.

Erulisse mutters the word fire under her breath.

Rhys says 'I believe we should bring him back to the Council in chains, personally'
Rhys says 'If these men are willing'
Rhaj says 'Not a good faith gesture, Im thinking'
Adael says 'Not a bad idea'

Shivar sits down and rests.

A burly dragonsworn says 'If we open the door, he might escape. He's wiley.'

Rhys says 'Lord Gregorin has offered amnesty to these men.'
Rhaj says 'He has not yet!'
Rhys says 'Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Amnesty, of course. They wanted to return home to their farms and trades.''

Surtain says 'shivar is sneaky and can sneak in'

Shivar blinks her eyes innocently.

Adael says 'I say we return to Gregorin, and get confirmation to give these men amnesty'
Rhaj says 'We are here only to scout for danger'
Leria says 'Then how can we ensure the safety of his transfer to Illian? '
Rhaj says 'And report back'

Shivar blushes in the midst of looting the camp for valuables.

Rhaj says 'Let's return to Illian'
Rhaj says 'And report back what we've seen'

Adael nods in agreement.

Iria says 'well it was mentioned that this Gorin could take the form of a spectre, or a ghost, perhaps we need to call someone'

Adael coughs loudly.

Rhaj says 'Lets discuss it with counsil'

~@~

Back at the Council of Nine... I did mention back and forths. :P

~@~

Rhys says 'We have returned from the Dragonsworn camp. They have their leader imprisoned behind a barreddoor and are offering to surrender him to Illian's custody in exchange for amnesty.'
Kitiara says 'Did you see the leader yourself?'
Surtain says 'yes'
Adael says 'Stop lying'
Carter says 'going to Leria Sedai'
Adael says 'We did not'
Iria says 'We heard him yelling'

Kitiara nods at Adael.

Iria says 'but no more than that'
Surtain says 'I thought she meant the new leader, not gorin'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos turns to face Rhaj.

Adael snickers softly.

Rhaj says 'Sir, we found the group that has this old false dragon in custody.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'And no sign of a trap?'

Rhaj says 'They will turn him over to us for amnesty.'
Rhaj says 'We saw none, sir.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos frowns.

Kitiara says 'Lord Gregorin, a suggestion if I may...'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Please, Aes Sedai.'

Kitiara says 'If these men receive amnesty they could gather inside your walls, so if this were a trap it could be sprung that way.'

Lord Brend says 'How could they, if they were farmers?'

Adael says 'We suggested they lay down all their weapons'
Adael says 'Should amnesty be granted'
Kitiara says 'However if the False Dragon comes with the Tower, to be gentled... and the Dragonsworn are absolved, but not allowed within the city for a period of time... we could curb that threat.'
Kitiara says 'A probationary period for the Dragonsworn, and the False Dragon is dealt with by the Tower... as they have always been.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos nods in agreement.

Lord Brend says 'I would suggest making the amnesty on the condition that the man is truly found to be this Gorin Rogad.'

Kitiara nods at Lord Brend.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Excellent suggestion.'

Rhaj nods at Lord Brend.

Rhaj says 'I agree.'

Rhys puffs thoughtfully on a long wooden pipe.

Lord Brend says 'Perhaps I should accompany the force to this hideout?'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Perhaps that would be wise.'

Kitiara says 'The full force of the Tower should go, in order to safety move this man to Tar Valon. However I would suggest we continue to keep a small force in Illian, just in case. '

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Before they claim any writ is forged, or what not.'

Rhaj says 'i agree with the Aes Sedai'

Lord Brend now follows Rhaj.

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Make it so.'

Rhaj says 'I assume this man can channel?'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'Undetermined, but suspected.'

Rhaj nods in agreement.

Rhaj says 'He will be released and escorted to the Tower then?'
Kitiara says 'Released is not the term I would use... his custody will be transferred... if it is truly him.'

Lord Gregorin den Lushenos says 'The Dragonsworn will be granted amnesty on the condition that this man is truly found to be Gorin Rogad.'

Rhaj says 'And the amnesty will be dependent on the confirmed identity of this man.'

Rhaj nods in agreement.

Rhaj says 'Let's go do this then'

Rhaj says 'I bring word from the Council.'

Erulisse tugs at her braid.

Alyse arches an eyebrow.

Lord Brend nods coolly at the Dragonsworn.

Rhaj says 'They have agreed to grant amnesty conditional on the identity of your prisoner.'

A burly dragonsworn pauses.

Rhaj says 'He better be who you say he is.'

A Dragonsworn says 'What does that mean?'

Kitiara nods in agreement.

Rhaj says 'Thats what it means.'
Rhaj says 'You will transfer custody of him to our group.'
Ominas says 'Sedai on Carter please.'
Rhaj says 'Once his identity is confimed, you'll have your amnesty.'
Ominas says 'Warders and apprentices on me.'

A burly dragonsworn says 'And we can go back to our lives?'

Reyne murmurs 'Someone should maybe ride ahead to investigate the alarm in Tar Valon if that is our destination.'

Rhys ponders life, the universe, and everything.
Erulisse whispers the word 'fire' under her breath.

A Dragonsworn says 'I'd like to see my little girls again.'

Rhaj says 'Once his identity is confirmed, yes'

A burly dragonsworn says 'I would like to hear an Aes Sedai say that.'

Rhys says 'Anyone ungrouped follow me'

A vein starts throbbing at Lord Brend's temple.

Rhaj says 'Kitiara?'

Kitiara says 'When his identify is confirmed, you Dragonsworn will have amnesty from Illian. The False Dragon will be transferred to the Tower.'

An Illian Companion nods in agreement.

A burly dragonsworn says 'What do you say, men?'

There is the sound of whispers as the Dragonsworn stick their heads together and talk.

Rhaj arches an eyebrow.

The Dragonsworn occasionally look at various members of the party.

Walden nods slightly at Erulisse.

Ominas and his party move closer to the Aes Sedai.

A burly dragonsworn nods in agreement.

A burly dragonsworn says 'Very well then.'

A burly dragonsworn says 'We did bar the door rather well.'

Rhaj stands alert.

Kitiara says 'Sisters, we need to shield this man first and foremost'

An Illian Companion lunges towards the fire and grabs a torch, throwing it onto the roof.

An Illian Companion bellows 'NO! Revenge for my brother!'

Reyne nods.
Iria links flows with Kitiara.

Fire begins to lick at the building, spreading rapidly.

Gorin Rogad bellows 'No!'
