The story arc is open to all Ambaran OCs!!



Prompt 20: Rebuilding....

"It is time to start a new chapter and to pick up the pieces of our shattered lives. The dark creature is gone thanks to the mighty sacrifice of our Emperor Creid, his wife and child left to wonder what has become of him. The darktouched (as they are now called) seem fine in all ways except some discolorations, and so they continue their lives much the same as ever. The two new Ambrivan Royals, peaceful and serene, have come to aid the Empress until the Crown Princess is old enough to take the throne. Their hearts seem pure, and they do their best to bring happiness and peace back to the people... We move forward together now, a force to be reckoned with, into what we hope is a bright future!"

--- Marretola "Marta"
... My Final Entry ...

Prompt 19: A Bittersweet Future

"The Ambaran people touched by the black goop are stained though they seem no worse for the wear... some of the Ambrivan's gems seem to have clouded over as well, but their magic seems to be intact... In the battle, our fearless leader and Emperor, melts away with the giant creature as the creature made one final swipe, snagging our Emperor and dragging him down too... We searched for days trying to find our Emperor. Two unknown Ambrivans from the mountains helped us, both of royal descent. The Empress and Princess are beside themselves with grief. The battle was won, the danger is passed, but the cost of life and our Emperor is more than most of us can bear. And now these new royals - we all look to them and our Empress for guidance on what to do next..."

--- Marretola "Marta"


Who are the new royals, and what will they do with Ambaran and the royal family?

What is happening to the people touched by the black goop? Will they be ok?

Is our beloved Emperor gone forever? Or will he come back? Do we want him to???





Prompt 18: To Battle We Go!

"The battle is hard fought. The Emperor takes the lead as he and brave soldiers and citizens charge into battle! The Circle appears, dark robed and chanting, hurling spell after spell at the mighty heroes of Ambaran... The Haaloman deflect the dangerous magic as the Seresans drag the members of The Circle to the depths of the sea. The charging Ambrivans reach the giant black figure, and in unison, they come together to fire off one massive spell into the sky! The BOOM is heard around the world as the shockwave sends shudders to the core of the planet. Moments later, hot white light rains down upon the planet, scorching the great black beast - it howls in pain and dismay! The creature melts away into nothing... tho something seems to happen when the melting black mess touches the Ambaran people...."

--- Marretola "Marta"


The battle is done, but is it really over?

Prompt 17: Darkness Revealed!!

"The chanting comes down in a booming voice as the party screeches to a halt, the sun blotted out by a giant dark figure materializing in the sky... A single dark hand comes down and grasps at the Emperor, missing but only so slightly... The crowd of Ambaran residents roars in terror and begins to flee... Only a few brave souls stay behind to battle for the future of the planet!"

--- Marretola "Marta"

Are you pessimistic or optimistic? Will the peace last or not?

What does your OC wear and do at the party? Do they meet anyone interesting?





Prompt 15: The Sacred Life Potion

"The chanting, though still audible, has diminished even further... The Ambrivans, Seresans, and Haalomans have all found their part of the ingredient-list and returned safely with it though there were many close calls. As the potion is being made, many tall tales are told and heroes emerge and are heralded for their bravery! Many will go down in history for their service to the kingdom! And now, behind closed doors, the Sacred Life Potion is being made... How long until we have our people back?"

Such a dangerous job that only Seresans can do! There is a crystal that only forms at the very top of the mountains where the mighty dragon lives... A hugely dangerous job that only Haalomans can do! And they need the dirt from a place each Ambrivan has walked... So everyone Ambrivan must venture to the home of every kidnapped Ambrivan to gather that dirt - a daunting job that only the Ambrivans can do! So the quest is on! It is time to reverse the magic of The Circle!"

Seresans can barely swim the chanting is so loud and obnoxious! The chanting disrupts the flight of the Haalomen, causing them to collide in the skies and fall to the land below...

And now the stomping of military feet through the streets as they search high and low for the missing Ambrivans is mixing with the chanting, giving it a uniform and eerie beat.

I can't talk to my friends, take a phone call, or even shut it out by going underground. It just keeps on... I am living in my own personal bubble now, just trying to blot out the noise though it is starting to become almost soothing..."
