The story arc of the latest Carnifex event. Skip to part 4 for the final event scene. The rest is basically just setup and backstory.
Part 1: Summoning the Wraithlord
The Carnifex manage to obtain a new tutor. Part of the agreement for his service includes promising to hurt Dhar.
Part 2: Planning for War
A month has passed since the Carnifex summoned the Wraithlord and the guild knows that their actions - and the history leading to this point - means that a war is coming. Perhaps compelled towards decisiveness because of the coming battles, Toz proposes to Moirean. Guild members research ways to attack the Underking. And the guild itself...searches for aid beyond their ranks.
Warning: some bits are snuggly. This is from Moirean's perspective, and her relationship to Toz is all tangled up in Carnifex stuff, so I just included the personal storyline parts.
Part 3: Shoring the Defences
Another month passes and the Carnifex have begun establishing their defences. Toz attempts to run the guards through some drills. Oil cauldrons and murderholes are added to the parapets of the curtain wall. A watchtower is built, complete with a warhorn to sound if enemies approach. But...it's not enough. More is needed, and so Moirean begins to think bigger.
Basically just for anyone who is a voyeur. Fairly tangential, but Toz and Moirean have been skirting around the plans for their wedding. Every time he tries to discuss details, Moi distracts him or changes the subject, usually by taking off her clothing. Finally, he forces her to discuss it and they make a unique decision. Mostly including this as a balance to the other parts and because it gives insight into part of the reason Moi reacts as she does in the final part.
It is snuggly and there's a fade to black reference to grown up cuddles. You are warned.
Part 4: Opening the Abyss
Chakrasul has come through on her part of the bargain and has given the Carnifex an archway, telling the guild to fill it with souls of the slain. The guild spends half a year making plans, researching potential uses of deathlore, hunting and dumping bodies into the gateway before they finally sense that...something....is about to open up.
Thank you to everyone involved: @Toz
, and @anyone
I may have missed. This has been a really fun month, and the story has been a great one.Very engaging and awesome for me to really explore what is currently making Moi tick. I'm excited to see where the next chapter takes all of us.
Edit: I cannot figure out how to get spoilers to work
