Admin Post The Great War of Giants STARTS AT 3pm CST TODAY! These enormous and lumbering humanoids, the Giants have been freely roaming the lands of Sosaria since the times we have been here. Known to be large and powerful, but not particularly bright they once settled in dungeons, but have disappeared with the death of Exodus. The creation and child of the evil wizard Mondain and his young lover Minax. Since Exodus they have been traveling around the woods and challenging humans to battle them out. Lately the brave travelers have been noticing bizarre behaviour from the giants especially the ettin ones. As for these two-headed monstrosities have been known to carry on heated discussions with themselves. According to them these giants have been talking about finding a home town and captured saying repeatedly "Ves --pper". Some of the humans believe they will be trying to colonize the shore town of Vesper in the Northern part of Britannia. During the era of Drylands the town Vesper was known to be inhabited by creatures like gargoyles that were forced by humans to wander around the woods too just like the ettins. They must have received that intelligence from gargoyles to travel to North and find Vesper. To the knowledge of Britannian librarians gargoyles are enough smart to know our language by the talented sea captain Johne, who taught a young gargoyle Beh Lem English. By time the Drylands the Southern Britannia grew up green and fertile again while humans managed to inhabit the town of Vesper over the gargoyles at the Great Conflict of, who to rule the extensive Minoc Mines. Today the town is known amongst its energetic fishermen and robust miners. Vesper has been since at peace under the rule of Lord British and the humans bursting the town's economy into its peak mostly through the operations of Britannian Mining Company. Apparently the rumoured new threat has been brought to town as the citizens of Vesper have had troubles at the neighbouring areas. Some of the scouts have told giants are setting up an army in order to attack the shore town. The lord of Britain has asked fellow travelers to defend Vesper. For those, who are brave enough to join the league will be royally rewarded. May the sword be with you! STARTS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 29TH, 2015 STARTS AT 3PM CST MULTI WEEK LONG EVENT CHAPTER I: Auston the Mayor of Vesper:"Citizens of Britain behold! I am Auston, The Mayor of Vesper As you have might know our town of Vesper has been set to the highest alert of the cities in Britannia. Some enormous monsters have now invaded our town in the Northern part of the main land. These monsters are known as giants. I am asking you, the travelers, to join me to defeat those who try to take the City of Vesper from us. The citizens of Vesper have already been evacuated, but unfortunately we have received some losses already. As the monsters managed to capture a large number of our citizens, I ask you, the fellow travelers, to purify the town of these vicious monsters. Those who are brave enough to enter Vesper will be royally rewarded with the respect of myself, Auston the Mayor of Vesper and Lord British of Britain. Let us slay them down! Follow me to the gate, if you got what it takes."... ------------------------------------- CHAPTER II: (Coming SATURDAY, DEC. 5TH) ( COMING SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5TH ) The time is here for you, the fighters of Sosaria to join the glorious leagues and add just another story to be written into history of our lands. Yet something to be told to your offspring. Two of the largest organizations out there: Britannian Purity League and Order of the Silver Serpent have agreed to help citizens of Vesper in plan to get giants out of their town. Whilst the agreement they have opened positions for brave candidates letting to join their ranks. You will be guided to join under the rule of commanders Geoffrey of the Britannia and Maxwell the Serpents. Candidates are given a chance to fight with the league commanders and their best knights. Against the giants. Heretofore the amount of giants has been overly unbreakable and yet developing. Their evolving progress has come as a shock to some humans. Rumours are spreading across the land saying that the guards have resigned from their positions as guarding the town of Vesper and have thus joined the ranks of these organizations as mercenaries. Some of them even into a murderous horde. This is what the Mayor of Vesper, Auston has yet to confirm, but it might have some political storm ahead as well. Vesper is undergoing chaotic times. In order to join the leagues the commanders will be sharing more information such as locations, where to meet in the upcoming days. Stay tuned and be together fighters. Keep Britannia clean! Send giants back! Maxwell & Geoffrey have been killed! The last standing hope for the City of Vesper has been lost... THE CITY OF VESPER IS NOW A NON-GUARDED AREA. -------------------------------------------- THE CITY OF VESPER IS ONCE AGAIN, GUARDED. ------- On Tuesday, December 8th, while Vesper has been under siege for days on end now. A massive Alpha Giant was spotted near the bank, quickly sending word across the lands of his arrival. Durok, The Angry One- an Alpha Giant which have been known to be extinct until this night, appeared right before the eyes of the brave warriors and sorcerers that were attempting to rid the giant army from the valiant city. Hours of battling ensued, many upon many lives were lost. Those who underestimated Durok, quickly met their pending doom. Eventually, due to the comradery and excellent team work of those involved, the noble people of the lands were able to bring Durok to his knees, put out his evil flames, and balance the tides a little more in their favor. Although Vesper is still under heavy attack, there seems to now be hope amongst the brave ones. Word is now spreading fast of Durok's great demise, and while the uplifting news seems to be bringing more aid to the city of Vesper, there seems to remain some worry if any more of these "Alpha Giants" will be appearing again soon.... ---------------------------- CHAPTER III The chaotic times in Vesper has led to many debates in the past weeks lastly the town mayor Auston disappearing, guards leaving the town to join mercenaries into specific leagues Order of The Silver Serpents and Britannian Purify League that were designed to destroy the evil ones. The organizations made citizens hopeful after announcing their co-operation for the first time ever. That formation of organizations did not end well as at the great clash they lost their commanders Geoffrey of Britannian Purify League and Maxwell of the Silver Serpents. Many of their prime knights lost their lives as well in this epic battle. Yet the murderous hordes had begun taking Control in town among the giants. Citizens of Vesper have lost hope. However, the wise magicians of New Magincia have been able to summon up a delicate spell that was created years before their time to specifically ward off any giant. The great magicians have been summoning up the spell for hours now, and it at first glance, appears to be working ! The Giants numbers have slowly been diminishing over the first days. Will this be the cure and end of The Great WAR of Giants Invasion? Is Vesper finally safe to return to normal and travel within? Only time will tell.... --------------------------------------------------- CHAPTER IV THE GIANTS UNITE The great magicians of Magincia were unable to keep up their Giant ward-off spell for as long as they originally figured! Their mana and energy low they grew tired and soon the Giants came rumbling back, completely decimating all four of the great wizards. The Giants fearing now that they could once again be warded off from making the islands of Vesper their new home called upon every type of enormous creature from across the lands to ensure their settlement. Once again the Giants filled Vesper in its entirety and also it seems an elder leader from each giant has been sent to over-see the invasion and encampment in which they aim to make their home. THE TALLEST OF ENTS, GIANT: TWIG (BOSS) Twig, The Tallest of Ents released his massive splintery fury. The people of Britannia seen that Twig was not one to be burned quickly. Twig summoned creatures of all types of plant life to his aid, cracking and whipping their way through the brave souls who tried to stand tall against the mighty creature. After some time, and many deaths the people were able to snap Twig to his knees, decimating him into mere kindling... Cheers were heard loudly from across the lands, however the battle is far from over... GOLIATH, THE MASSIVE?
