Post Reply Flame Kingdom
Posted 5/31/08 , edited 5/31/08
It was another long hot day in the lands of Fire. This once great kingdom had fallen over the years in stature. Its great armies had fallen to little more than guards for the princess who was the last of the royals to stay on in the kingdom. No one really knew where the King o Queen were, just that no one had seen them in years.
The capitol city of Dis was worn down as well, not as much trade took place, though there was always a good trade in weapons to the other kingdoms. No more did the Brazen Legion march in parades down its streets, showing the pride of fire to its inhabitants. No more did Knight of Fire duel for the entertainment of its citizens. And no more did anyone remember their worship.
Each of the kingdoms has a patron god or goddess. Fire was no different. They officially served the dual Phoenix Ho-Oyo. The twins who are One, male and female firebirds, who bless righteous rulers, and rain death apon those who would destroy their children. But at times, their flames burn softer, and then become as ash, as their children turn into embers as well. Now the flames has all but died, just a flickering of life remaining in their kingdom. So today, on Oyo’s day of burning, under the mid-day sun, a small flame starts to burn on the plain near the capitol city. With no one watching but the lizards of the area she takes her form, and reaches out her wings. Then reaching out her claws she marks the earth, casting a long forgotten rune. This time she creates a towering inferno on the plain yet the only one to notice it is one maid high up in the castle itself. Oyo pulls the flames in, using the rune, and form’s it into the shape of a man, her knight and defender.
Oyo looks at her work and thinks to herself, 'this is good now is the time to prepair the road for my brother, Ho'
The man looks at his lord and master, and kneels before her “I live to serve, mistress”
“good, let me ride on your shoulder" her voice says in his mind

Snerk, But that would be what, sleeping with a Bird?

I would have played Saffron if I wanted to do that.

In the darkness of the evening, a man slowly continues to clear away at the dirt surrounding a stone. The stone is conical shaped and runs under the ground to a great extent. As he works away at the dirt, moving it aside below the earth line runes on the rocks face can start to be seen. A bird flies down from the top of the rock, and starts to speak in an old tongue, ancient beyond measure. The runes start to glow a flaming red color and the ground begins to shake.
Far off in the Fire castle guards feel the ground shake but pay it no mind. Not all guards as so lax, but these are.
The bird starts to grow, to enormous size, and picks the man up in her talons. The rock shakes violently, as a crack in the earth start to form.
Now farther kingdoms are feeling the quake. At least a few of the more aware guards are starting to become “concerned” over the earthquake.
The fire palace and the city of Dis are both shaking hard, and everyone is trying to find shelter until it passes.
The cracks in the earth start to reveal what looks to be a buried old Temple of the Fire Gods. After the earthquake continues, and then a great wind blows through the area, the small temple stands exposed.
The bird flashes her eyes, and flames light up on the temple walls lighting the darkness. The man, walks in and kneels before the altar. Beyond the altar are two weapons who bear the fire runes spelling out their names, Atar and Agni. He stands and takes them.

All that night, they sat together in the temple, The bird goddess and her avatar. Around the temple itself a shell of flames covered the area, so even though the Princess of Flame sent guards to examine it, no would quite be able to gain entry to see what was inside. In truth they were effected more by the illusions built into the flames than its heat, though its heat was powerful enough to keep others out as well. She had long been in sleep, and had not had to take an avatar in many centuries. It was harder work than she thought pulling memories of past flame knights and lords up, to choose how to construct her avatars mind. For the rest of the night she worked at this, until in the end, she looked on her avatar and sighed. ‘He is as ready as he will ever be’. She thought to herself.
There were many guards and soldiers on the outside of the flaming shell. Many attempts at breaking it had failed at this point, with only one Fire Mage saying this was a spell that had not seen use for hundreds of years. They were expecting or fearing some great demon to come out when the shell finally fell. Slowly as they watched it, the flames started to thin, growing pale, and translucent. It was then they could see the temple beyond the flames, a fire temple of ancient design. As the last of the flames died in the great circle around the temple, a man walked out, with two Naginata’s over his right shoulder. On his left shoulder sat a redish colored bird with bright red eyes.
A guard ran up to him, in front of him and tried to grab him, the man moved to the side and tapped him on the shoulder as he passed., falling on his face.
“I need to speak with your captain” spoke the man.
The men looked amongst themselves, and finally one man spoke “I am he” said their captain.

“I have come to relight the fires, and to protect the goddess. If anyone enters the temple who is unworthy, they will be consumed. Make sure this order is kept” said the man.

“Who are you to give such orders, We serve the royals, not some lowlife such as yourself” replied the captain.

“I am Typhon, keeper of the Goddess and defender of the sacred flame. I am here to judge those who would take the name of flame and let it dwindle out.”

At this the guards did something extremely stupid, they attacked. “For the queens honor!” they charged at him. Moments later only he and the captain stood still.
“Make certain my orders are kept.” Typhon repeated to the captain. The captain only nodded in agreement, looking at the charred remains of his company.

Typhon turned away from him then, and started the walk to the Castle of flames.

“Soon, I shall see these royals and see who shall be spared.”
