Death is but a doorway, time is but a window, I'll be back.

In the interest of the realm, lords Mini E, Qikz and myself have made a joint decision to hold an election to crown a new king so that we can focus on our true enemies the vile necromancer priests and their shambling undead army.

I hereby nominate myself as the new custodian of the realm or Garcadia.

All in favour say Aye.

Aye (although slightly concerned by the immediately preceding Valar Morghulis post).

I'm also somewhat frightened by the Valar Morghulis. What does it mean Lord Ironhide?

It was in response to Lord Preezy's post from beyond the grave.

Roughly translated it means "all must die", but fear not I was simply telling me spirit to return to the void.

I shall vote Lord Ironhide to be our king. If he turns out to be the forces of darkness then I shall not regret my decision. Lord Ironhide you have served our kingdom well and executed the dissidents. Aye.

For one week war ravaged the land, a time of great trials and treachery that would become known as the Anarchy of Garcadia. I was there to witness the fall of Castles Karl and Preezy that marked the beginning of the seven long days of conflict. I was there to see the execution of Lord Hexx, first nobleman to die as law and order collapsed across the nation. I was there when the armies of the dead rose up from the grave and began ravaging the country and her people. As a Scribe of the Order of Orange Raccoons I witnessed all these events and more. But most importantly, more than anything else I recorded to history, I was there for the coronation of King Ironhide, that momentous and near disastrous moment whose consequences would reverberate throughout history.

The sun beats down upon Garcadia, uncharacteristically hot, granting no shelter to the downtrodden soldiers who have so far survived the battles that have raged across the country. Soldiers loyal to all three of the surviving warlords who have competed for the crown. Competed, for now the matter is decided. The soldiers have not gathered for battle, but to mark the coronation of their new king. Lord Ironhide, recognised by his peers Lords Mini E and Qikz as Garcadia's one true rightful heir. In both his politics and his generalship he has won himself that most venerated title - King of Garcadia.

Ironhide now stands before the combined armies of the land, one thousand of his own men joined with Lord Mini E's and Lord Qikz's to make a force near three thousand strong. In his hands he holds a golden crown, at once both understated and glorious. His fingers run around the rim, brushing away the dust and revealing an inscription inside the crown.

"BY HEAVEN'S MANDATE, AS THE CROWN RULES, THE DEAD SHALL SLEEP"

Ironhide lifts the crown above his head, ready to declare himself rightful ruler, when suddenly a shadow passes across the sky. Over the horizon march a horde of undead, the skeletal warriors numbering far more than has ever been seen, bones creaking and spears glinting. At their head, their lieutenants finally revealed. The fallen lords of Garcadia, their bodies rotten, revived by dark and demonic power, past animosity put aside in service of their new unholy mistress. Twelve in total, only Lord Karl is absent from amongst the fallen.

With great haste Ironhide, Mini E and Qikz spring to action, ordering their soldiers into formation as they scramble to make ready for battle - not just for the crown, but for the fate of Garcadia itself.


Attack on the Kingdom of Garcadia (2879 v 1212)
1212/1212 Forces of Darkness

The Kingdom of Garcadia survives with 1667 troops


The fighting is the most fierce Garcadia has ever seen, hundreds of good men falling to the ranks of the undead. Finally though, thankfully, the soldiers of Garcadia prevail, emerging victorious over the forces of darkness. Amongst the vanquished are the corpses of the undead lords, their corrupted souls rendered bodiless.

Wasting no time, still covered in the blood and dirt of battle, Ironhide takes up the crown and places it upon his head. The soldiers cheer in unison, welcoming the new King of Garcadia!


King Ironhide is victorious!

Mini E and Qikz survive as Lords of Garcadia

Hexx, mic, Dual, Oblomov Boblomov, Jenuall, Dan, False, Preezy, jawafour, DarkRula, VlaSoul and Moggy are banished to eternal limbo in the world between life and death

Karl ascended to heaven and eternal peace

Thanks for playing!

On death, players would receive this PM:

Death PM wrote:You have been executed - but this might not be the end. Please read on, but do not reveal the existence or content of this PM to any other player!

You are cold. A grey light permeates the featureless void, a flat plane stretching out to infinity in every direction.

In front of you stands a woman, at once beautiful and terrifying. In your left eye you see her as a young and fair maiden of unearthly beauty. In your right you see an old hag, bent double and riddled with warts. She speaks, her lips unmoving.

"Finally we meet, Lord. I have been watching you closely."

"Before you waits the forever darkness of death. I offer an alternative. Accept my love, and return to the mortal world as my follower."

Do you accept or refuse?


Refusal will end your involvement in the game


If they accepted, they would then receive this PM (massive apologies to Moggy, I forgot to actually send him this after he accepted this morning! I genuinely feel bad about that, luckily it didn't actually make a difference):

Accept PM wrote:Your soul has returned to the mortal realm, but your body is bloodless and rotten. To appear in public would be to invite death back upon yourself. Hidden you must remain, from the shadows commanding your forces as is the will of your Lady. You feel her power already, her watchful spirit guiding your actions. You must not rest until she is returned to this world.

Every day you can send 100 undead soldiers to attack a player of your choice. These will appear in-thread as "forces of darkness". If you capture a player they will be immediately executed, sacrificed in your Lady's honour. Like yourself, all executed players will be given the choice to return under the Lady's command.

You will win the game if all players are killed. You will lose the game if a new monarch is elected, as their crowning will restore the seal that keeps your Lady from returning to the world.

Please do not reveal your new role in-thread, or to any surviving players. I will inform you by PM if another executed player joins your side, at which point you will be free to PM them and plot together.


If they refused (only Karl did so), they instead received this PM:

Refuse PM wrote:You refuse, the featureless void and woman within it fading from view as you ascend onwards.

You open your eyes to a warm and bright light, and you feel happy.


Again, thank you all for playing and I hope you enjoyed the game! Any and all feedback is greatly welcome and appreciated <3

As you forgot to send me the PM I think the whole game should be declared void.

Cheers for running the game OR. I had no idea what was going on half the time, but I still had fun.

This was a really fun game and I echo Moggy in saying I had no idea what was going on, but it was a lot of fun!

Congratulations King Ironhide, Lord Mini E we have survived the glorious battle. It goes to show that us not being selfish won us (ish) the game!

Really enjoyed that, even if I was a captive for the vast majority. Well done King Ironhide, all hail.

Thanks to OR for putting on a great game.

*grumbles* and well done to Karl for being more honourable than the rest of us *grumbles*

I was running the game and I had no idea what was happening half the time :lol:

Would be cool if anyone wants to roughly summarise the alliances/factions that were in play, not seeing any of the PMs between players I was trying to figure it out from the thread alone

I totally called the Forces of darkness being the fallen lords mechanic, and have the PMs to prove it, therefore I am the true Victor in this game! ;)

Really fun game to be a part of, massive thanks for running it OR! :toot:
