Title: The Shanarran Chronicles
Description: Game is now Open
aislinn - February 15, 2016 06:21 PM (GMT)
A new day has dawned in Aborlon and with it a new batch of the Chosen has been selected to protect and look after the Ellcryss. The Princess Amberlee has successfully run the Gauntlet and, in doing so, has become the first woman to earn the honor.
At the initiation Amberlee has a vision of the Ellcryss dying. This vision awakens the Druid Allanon who speeds his way to Aborlon. While on his way, Allanon, comes across a half-elf names Wil. Allanon convinces Wil to join him. Wil is skeptical of Allanon and it’s only after a display of Allanon’s power that Wil believes magic is real.
Upon their arrival in Aborlon Wil and Allanon discover that Amberlee has fled; fearing she is the cause for the Ellcryss’ condition. Allanon and Wil set out to bring Amberlee back as she is the last of the Chosen, the others having all been killed.
For every leaf of the Ellcryss that falls a new demon will rise. With the Ellcryss having falling ill it opened the gateway for the Dagda Mor to rise. He is a druid that had been seduced by the dark magic. He is hell bent on the destruction of the Fourlands and more specifically Aborlon.
The Ellcryss gives Amberlee the vision that it is her responsibly to take its seed to Safe Haven and in accomplishing this she will save the Fourlands. This is where we pick up.
It had been a hard night. The demon attack had come from out of nowhere. Amberlee, Will and Allanon had become separated and as they search for each other, all the while heading in the direction they believe Safe Haven is located, they pray that they will not fail in their mission.
In the meantime the Dagda Mor is busy using his Changeling to monitor the situation at Aborlon and to create as must chaos as possible.
This day phase will last from now to 10:00EST on Thursday the 18th.
Wil – Half Elf/Half Human. He is the last in the Shanarran Bloodline. He has come into possession of the Elfstones and has discovered that magic is in fact real and that he alone can master the Elfstones and help save the Westlands and, more importantly, Arborlon the home of the Ellcryss. Wil can use the stones to kill a person. His spell will be cast during the night phase.
Princess Amberle – The last of the Chosen. It is her duty to carry the Seed of the Ellcryss to Safehaven. She can receive visions from the seed. The visions are a response to her questions. Amberle will ask the seed one question each night. The question is up to her.
Allanon – The Druid. He can use his magic to protect one player. His spell will take effect during the night phase and last until the next night phase. He can, if he chooses, heal or resurrect one person during the course of the game, instead of protect someone during the night; he just needs to remember that healing/resurrecting is a one-time deal, so he must choose wisely.
These three will not know who each other are but they can be found and connected through Amberlee’s visions (questions). Once Amberlee has found them she may PM them and they her.
Cons: The Dagda Mor - He was once a human Druid, however he became seduced by Dark Magic. He was trapped in the Underworld, but has since be released due to the Ellcryss growing ill; however as long as the Ellcrys lives he is limited in what he can do. He controls the Changeling that has been sent to Aborlon. Using the information he gathers from the Changeling he chooses who he wants to follow or kill.
The Changeling – Under the order of the Dagda Mor it either follows a person to see who they are, or kills the person if the Dagda so orders.
The Dagda Mor and The Changeling are the only two who will know who each other are and can PM each other from the start of the game.
The Pros win once the Dagda Mor and the Changeling are both killed. Upon their death Amberle has made it to Safehaven and the Ellcryss is saved thus casting all remaining demons back into the Afterworld.
The Cons win once Amberle is found and killed. As the only living member of the Chosen it is her task to save the Ellcryss. Upon her death the Ellcrys dies and the Dagda Mor is free to unleash all of his demon army.
Good Luck everyone.

I'm a bit confused. Will we vote for somebody although both Wil and Changeling (under Dagda Mor's orders) can kill somebody during the night phase? Or what is the purpose of this day phase? (And why is it over a week long?)
Anyway, I'm eager to start figuring out who everybody is. :)
aislinn - February 16, 2016 08:33 PM (GMT)
That should be ends this Thursday the 18th, had someone talking to me while I was trying to read the calendar and must have dropped a line.
And yes still vote this day phase. Sorry for the confusion.
karakuri_doll - February 17, 2016 11:27 AM (GMT)
Okay, that makes sense. Thank you for clearing that up for me. ^^
I hope people will start participating because if not, it will be difficult to vote. <_<

I have to go to sleep (it's almost 12PM here) and I don't want to miss the voting so I'm just going to go blind.
You have only been a pro so far so I figured there is a good chance you are an anti in this game.
aislinn - February 18, 2016 11:18 PM (GMT)
We have our first vote.
Libra - February 19, 2016 01:01 AM (GMT)
aislinn - February 19, 2016 03:02 AM (GMT)
Two votes in:
Voting now closed. With it being the first day phase and a 2 vote tie, no one will die this day phase. However, if this happens the next day phase the tie will be broken by a random draw of a name.
Night phase begins now and will end Sunday at 10:00PM EST or once all night actions have been PM'd.
aislinn - February 22, 2016 06:06 PM (GMT)
The night had passed quietly. Both sides had decided to seek answers and locate others. No one had died, which is always a good thing.
The Dagda Mor sat in Henge of Safety happily turning the information, he had been provided, over in his head. The Changeling had done well. She had located one of their enemies and a powerful one at that. They would have to be careful and use this information to the best of their advantage but he had little doubt that would be a problem.
Amberle followed her instincts and asked the Elcryss for it's help in finding Wil. The Elcryss granted her request and using the knowledge it gave her she was able to locate him. Finding Wil eased Amberle's mind as she would now have someone to discuss her thoughts with and to help her with decisions. Working together they hoped to find Allanon and once again be three strong.
With the dawning a new day a different chapter in the quest begins. This day will last from now until 10:00PM EST on Wednesday the 24th.

I hope people will be more active during this day phase because voting blind the second time would suck. Besides, it's a bit boring to have nobody to talk to.
aislinn - February 23, 2016 02:42 PM (GMT)
karakuri_doll - February 23, 2016 08:35 PM (GMT)
Don't worry, I'm not blaming you. Everybody is probably just busy with real life. Still, it's a shame that the game has been so quiet.
Raven524 - February 24, 2016 04:22 PM (GMT)
I made it! Sorry guys but was on a business trip but I'm BAAAACK! :lol:
I agree it is hard if folks aren't talking. Looks like some activity happened last time, so hopefully this time we'll be able to make an educated guess??
karakuri_doll - February 25, 2016 01:51 AM (GMT)
Welcome back! I hope you had a nice trip. :)
Since there hasn't been much discussion, I'm just as clueless as I was at the end of the first day. Because of that, I'm just going to repeat my first vote. Here goes nothing.
aislinn - February 25, 2016 03:25 AM (GMT)
The day had come to a close. Wil had separated from Amberle and unfortunately that proved to be his undoing. With one vote cast Sam114 has been eliminated.
Sam114 was Wil.
The night phase begins now and will end on Friday the 26th at 10:00PM or until all night moves have been made.
aislinn - February 27, 2016 04:00 AM (GMT)
Amberle had asked the Elcryss where Allanon was and it replied giving her the answer. She made her way to him and just in time as the Changeling's attempt on her life was voided by the druids spell of protection.
Amberle and Allanon watched as the sun came up bringing with it a new day. They mourned the loss of Will and decided to press on in his honor.
Meanwhile the Dagda Mor cursed his bad luck and focused his attention on a new line of attack.
The new day has started and will end on Sunday the 28th at 10:00PM EST.
Raven524 - February 27, 2016 04:11 PM (GMT)
Great News for Amberle!
Since you voted twice for the person who was Will.
Libra - February 28, 2016 01:45 AM (GMT)
Really no reason
TheMissingWinchester - February 28, 2016 11:23 AM (GMT)
vote: [B]kukuri doll[B] for taking out Wil
TheMissingWinchester - February 28, 2016 03:31 PM (GMT)
and since the cat is out of the bag anyway since they tried to kill me last night, so they know for sure who I am, I'm Amberle..... we need to take out the changeling if possible.
Kukuri Doll I definitely feel is a wolf, hopefully the changeling. All pros need to unite! Go pros!!!
aislinn - February 29, 2016 02:14 AM (GMT)
We have two votes for Karakuri_doll and one for TMW.
There is a half hour left to go.
aislinn - February 29, 2016 03:12 AM (GMT)
Karakuri_doll had mentioned that she needed to go out of town and had placed her voto the te for TMW so that makes two for Karakuri and two for TMW. The vote is left to random draw.
The situation in the Fourlands had grown most desperate. Both Amberle and the Changeling had been gravely injured their fates were left to the magic that had been newly awakened. The magic coursed through the land in search of the one who had the most life left that person was Amberle.
With this day phase Karakuri_doll, the Changeling, has passed. With the Changeling's passing the Dagda Mor must leave the sanctuary of his henge and carry out his evil deeds himself.
The day has ended and the new night new has begun. This night phase will end at 10:00 PM Tuesday, March 1st or after all night actions have been posted.
aislinn - March 2, 2016 06:58 PM (GMT)
The night came and with it the Dagda Mor made his move. Under the cover of darkness he crept to where Allanon slept and wasting no time he quietly killed the druid and slipped away undetected.
The next morning Amberle awoke to find her last travel companion gone. Panic set in and she feared the worst and hoped for the best. She had heard tails of Druids being brought back and wondered if maybe that could happen this time.
She packed her things and continued on. It didn't look good, but not all was lost.
The day phase begins now and ends at 10:00 on Friday the 4th.
(Sorry all, I had injured my leg last week and last night I aggravated it that's why it took so long.)
TheMissingWinchester - March 2, 2016 07:10 PM (GMT)
voting: [/B]libra[B] who is magda
TheMissingWinchester - March 2, 2016 08:23 PM (GMT)
magda, dagda....... to may toe, to mah toe lol
Libra - March 3, 2016 01:21 AM (GMT)
aislinn - March 5, 2016 03:17 AM (GMT)
1 vote for TMW and 1 vote for Libra.
Through the day the Dagda Mor and Amberle took shots at each other, each hoping that they would deal the killing blow. Amberle had luck on her side and with one last swing of her fathers sword she killed the Dagda Mor. With the Evil Druid dead Amberle made it to Safehold and the Bloodfire, thus saving the Elcryss and the Fourlands.
With there being a tie the kill was decided by random draw. The Pros win with the deaths of the Dagda Mor and the Changeling.
Thank you all for playing. I hope that someone else runs a game and that we can get more to play. :P

Excellent Game! Well played by all :D
Thanks Aislinn :wub:
karakuri_doll - March 6, 2016 07:11 PM (GMT)
Haha, I see that I got caught quickly after succeeding in voting Sam114 out. :D Too bad that we cons lost. For a while things look pretty good for us. :evil However, it was an exciting game. It was fun to plot against you good guys with Libra. :)
Thank you again, aislinn, for arranging this game. Let's play again soon!
